Key takeaways: smoothies
Smoothies can either be filled with dairy and sugar, or made with some of the healthiest foods in the world. What does science say about them? Is there anything we need to be careful about? For a full recap, check out the smoothie themed page as well as my videos. (I even have a video where I make my own smoothie recipe!)
Recipe: barley tabbouli salad with tahini drizzle
In this hearty salad, intact barley stands for broken bulgur, but you can use another whole grain if you’d like. This recipe is a great way to use leftover cooked whole grains that you may have on hand. A dash of tahini sauce gives the salad a unique depth of flavor. You can find the full recipe here and a video of how to make it here.
PAN is hiring
One of my favorite organizations, the Physicans Association for Nutrition, is seeking a whole-fledged, plant-based nutrition expert for the position of Medical Content Executive. The position is fully suspended and candidates can be located anywhere in the EU, Africa, or the US (East Coast). You can find more information and apply here.
Spotlight Volunteer: João Madureira
I have been doing Portuguese translations for a number of years. I love doing it because it has a real impact on the health of so many people and the planet. The work of NutritionFacts.org is very important for many reasons. One of the main reasons, in my opinion, is that it sharpens critical thinking and shows the prejudices that also exist in scientific work.
My favorite plant-based dish is curry. I love adding lots of antioxidant condiments, and I substitute tomato paste and ground flaxseed for the oil.
