Green Issues


What a week this has been; what a rare mood I'm in! Yikes,that sounds like a take off on an old song, doesn't it? But it has been an exceptionally busy, hectic week. The May issue of Vanity Fair arrived in my mailbox and just happened to be their first green issue. It's chock-a-block full of great articles covering all aspects of the green house effect with suggestions for what needs to be done going forward to avoid catastrophe. Don't hesitate to spend the best part of a $5 bill on this informative issue covering articles by Al Gore; Arnold Schwarzenegger and George Pataki among others. See hunky George Clooney in his "walk the walk" electric car along with Annie Liebovitz's fantastic cover photo: www.vanityfair.com/magazine/pressroom/. Included in the issue is a handy pull-out insert, "What You Can Do - 50 ways to help save the planet." Many good suggestions that each of us can incorporate into our daily routines. From something as simple as changing lightbulbs, recycling, eliminating plastic bags along with disposable goods and turning off the water while you brush your teeth to driving a hybrid car and planting your own garden. Get it, do what you can to make some changes NOW and encourage others. If we don't do it, who will? Had to look it up, but Eldridge Cleaver said, in a speech in San Francisco back in 1968, " You're either part of the solution or part of the problem." I'd prefer to be a part of the solution, wouldn't you? Check it out, then start making gradual yet regular efforts to eliminate waste, conserve energy and make wise purchases. Choose sustainable solutions remembering that we pay a very high price long term for cheap costs in the short run.


More Greens
I've been conscientiously adding items from the Rx Super Foods list to every meal. Incoporating most from the list every week. Broccoli is a favorite, so it's easy to include and lately I've found that it not only adds a nice little fillip to a grains meal as well as being a great side for meats, poultry and fish, but it makes a lovely light lo-cal lunch. Try this easy winner:
Broccoli, Red Peppers and Goat Cheese (serves 4 - 15 minutes)
2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
1 head broccoli, florets only
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 - 3 bottled roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
1 shallot, thinly sliced (or use green onions)
1 tsp dried basil or 2 TBS fresh basil chiffonade
juice from half a fresh lemon
salt and pepper to taste
2 - 3 oz goat cheese, crumbled
Wash and drain broccoli, in a large skillet, heat oil over med heat. Add broccoli, garlic and shallots and cook 5 - 8 minutes until crisp - tender (add splash of water to steam a bit). Stir in roasted red peppers, basil, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Remove from heat, divide among plates, sprinkle with crumbled goat cheese.
(This is particularly good with some whole wheat pita bread for a fiber filled light lunch.)
If you're curious, here's the list of Rx Super Foods:
Broccoli • Oranges • Spinach • Blueberries • Pumpkin
Turkey • Soy • Yogurt • Walnuts • Wild Salmon • Tea
Beans • Tomatoes • Whole Grains
How many of them do you eat each week?
