How to Make Tasty Vegan Burgers

image

Rich in healthy protein, folate, and fiber, chickpea and corn burgers are definitely worth trying where one is looking to reduce overall intake of flesh meats.

The key to these burgers is to remove as much moisture as possible from the chickpeas and corn before combining together in a food processor.

We used chives, avocados, tomatoes, and Dijon mustard to liven up our burgers. You can follow your tastebuds and make your own version of chickpea and corn burgers by adding favourite spices and garnishes. Cumin, coriander, mayo, and all types of greens are excellent choices, as is plenty of freshly cracked black pepper. Read more about How to Make Tasty Vegan Burgers

When we're pressed for time and on the prowl for some serious flavour, this is our can't-miss choice for dinner.

You can make your own black beans by soaking the night before and cooking them until tender, but more often than not, we go with the healthiest pre-made black bean product at the grocery store. Which leaves only a pot of rice, some guacamole, and crisp shreds of lettuce and your favourite tomatoes to have on hand to construct a wonderfully satisfying and nourishing meal, rich in healthy protein, health-enhancing fat, and plenty of antioxidants to support cellular health.

Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

If you're looking for a truly healthy, protein-rich food to anchor your diet, I highly recommend that you consider quinoa (pronounced keen wah). Called the "mother of grains" by the Incan empire, quinoa is native to South America, and is naturally rich in all nine essential amino acids - these are amino acids that we humans can't make from other nutrients, so must obtain from our diet. Quinoa is one of a few grains that are gluten-free, and for most people, it's easy to digest and utilize. Read more about Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

 

Starbucks Coconut Milk

Starbucks in Canada recently began providing coconut milk as an alternative to dairy and soy. Curious to know the makeup of their coconut milk, I went to a local shop and gave it a try.

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed. It felt quite artificial to my palate, and I don't consider myself to be a connoisseur of fine foods and beverages, not by a long shot.

Curious to know what was giving their coconut milk a chemical-like feel to me, I took note of their ingredients: Read more about Starbucks Coconut Milk

What Most Doctors Won't Tell You About Cholesterol

Updated on July 14, 2011

During my university years, I used to frustrate my parents by throwing away egg yolks and eating only the whites. No worries, I thought, as my parents just didn't know enough to realize that I was reducing my risk of heart disease by avoiding cholesterol. Looking back, I'm sure that my parents were wondering how I could so easily toss away precious egg yolks that they were able afford only a few times a year when they lived in Korea.

Dear Dr. Kim:
