I just joined the Wellness Forum, led by Pam Popper. I've heard several talks by her and like her. Also Howard Jacobson works there and he's a good researcher I bought the concierge membership so I have access to their medical knowledge and research team. That is my health insurance program. I want to research first before taking any doctor's advice, because nowadays they are just pill and invasive test prescribers. Upon joining, I got this special offer to offer a regular membership to 2 other people for $49.50. I believe at this level of membership, you don't have access to the medical libraries, but you do get lots of information about how to adopt a plant-based diet and improve your health. If you are early on your journey and want a little help transitioning, this might be a good option for you. I don't know. If you are interested, email me: bwhitney (at) chi-squared.org. (I spelled out the "at"-sign to keep down the spammer traffic). If you are a long-time whole-foods plant-based eater, I don't think you need this membership, though you might be interested in the concierge membership. or you can wait and see what I find out about it. I'll update later on how I like it.
Here is a super easy salad dressing that I have been making every day.
6 oz berries
4 oz homemade soy yogurt
1/2 Tablespoon balsamic or apple cider vinegar (optional)
1 T flax-chia seeds (optional--actually tastes better without)
Blend in a blender. Pour on your salad. I make a huge salad for lunch with lettuce, spinach, kale or arugula, maybe a little raw cabbage, mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, bean sprouts. that's been my winter salad anyway. I fill a big bowl and then dump the dressing on. mmmmm.
