Did you know in the last 150 years we have seen an unprecedented change in our fat intake? Particularly an intake from oils? Refined, inflammatory omega-6 oils including corn, soy, cottonseed and safflower oils have replaced the more beneficial Omega-3 oils from fish, wild game and wild plants. The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats has increased from 1:1 to 15:1 or 20:1 in our diets, and the effects have been bad, to say the least. Most major diseases of aging as well as the epidemic of brain disorders are directly associated with this change in our diet.
Quinoa it not a whole grain. Yup, you read that right. Quinoa is actually a seed! It’s rich in many vitamins, minerals and one of the only plant world’s complete protein food. I you have not tried making it yet, now is your perfect opportunity. I’ve got one of my all-time favorite recipes here for you, that utilizes this versatile seed. I took a super healthy Mediterranean dish (which I basically grew up on) and tweaked it to make it gluten free and even more nutritious than the original version. It’s Quinoa Tabouli. I have to admit, when I first replaced the traditional bulgur wheat with quinoa, my Lebanese mother was not too pleased. Oh no, you don’t mess with traditional Lebanese food. Now I am happy to report that she not only likes my recipe, but now only makes it this way. I love this recipe so much, not only because I grew up on it, but because this little dish packs and antioxidant punch! It’s got all four super antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E and Selenium) to keep our cell membranes healthy and fighting off free radicals. Let me know how you liked it.

This salad is an especially special one to serve for a romantic Valentines dinner. I developed it with aphrodisiacs in mind, like avocado, strawberries and pine nuts. The avocado’s texture is smooth and creamy, while tasting delicious. Strawberries are often described in erotic text as ‘fruit nipples’ and, like grapes, are perfect for hand feeding and full of vitamins. Pine nuts are rich in zinc, which is an essential mineral required to stimulate the male libido.
