Western diet Clinical nutrition A diet characterized by a ↑↑↑ fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories, which is commonly consumed in wealthier nations

 

By Dr. Mercola

Three decades ago, the food available was mostly fresh and grown locally. Today, the majority of foods served, whether at home, in school or in restaurants, are highly processed foods, filled with sugars, harmful processed fats, and chemical additives.

During that same time, obesity rates have skyrocketed, and one in five American deaths are now associated with obesity. Obesity-related deaths include those from type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, liver disease, cancer, dementia, and depression, as nearly all have metabolic dysfunction as a common underlying factor.

The featured1 article contains 11 telling charts and graphs, illustrating how the modern diet has led to an avalanche of chronic disease. As its author, Kris Gunnars says:

“The modern diet is the main reason why people all over the world are fatter and sicker than ever before. Everywhere modern processed foods go, chronic diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease soon follow.”

VEGAN PANCAKES BILLINI

My blood type diet has not allows me to have onions or curry for over a week.I think I’m type O but what I do know is I have a blood called “rouleaux” which means that the platelets stick together in chains which makes it difficult to go through arteries. I have had at least one mini stroke TIA.
I had a nutritional blood test in 2009 and really ignored the diet sheet because ti looked too hard.I was really super ill 2 weeks ago and decided I had better knuckle down and give the diet plan a chance especially as I’m dishing out food advice to others.

I have stopped wheat, sugar, coffee, tea,red meat, chicken, eggs. I am not even allowed onion, garlic, chilli and ginger…. and alhmdulilah praise God , I’ve been good,

HEAD COLD VEGAN FOOD

Now I have a head cold and cough and I’m resulting to my cultural remedies of hot spice garlic chilli onions ginger to fight the virus . It is vital like #Ital to eat vegan food when we’re ill because the body needs all its energy to fight the virus not digest #animal products .

These 100% vegan pancakes to go with curried beans are made from

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 tbsp of soaked flaxseeds in 1/2 cup water (egg replacement)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed milk
  • 1 cup of millet flour
  • We added 10 ml of ajwain seeds and 10 ml of cumin seeds for extra medical benefits

METHOD

  • Blend ingredients in blender ideally to break down flax seeds
  • wipe round small frying pan with kitchen roll or brush with tiny bit of olive oil
  • add 1 table spoon of batter and cook on low heat for a few minutes turning frequently
  • now millet is not wheat and these pancakes can be a bit soggy on the inside if too much batter is used, but we find if you leave them on a plate after you take them out of the pan they keep on cooking through and get more firm insha’allah
  • any left over batter lasts about a week in the fridge in air tight container
