Cosmic Cashew Kale

Here’s an amazing dish to whet your appetite for tasty nutrition. Susan V of the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen created this Cosmic Cashew Kale that can be served over rice or some other grain. Try it with her Confetti Quinoa, an extremely easy side dish that complements just about any meal.


½ cup raw cashews
½ cup hot water
¾ cup water
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. vegetable bouillon or broth powder
1 large onion
½ red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1½ cups chickpeas (or a 15 oz. can, rinsed & drained)
1 bunch kale, stems removed & leaves thinly sliced
1 tsp. dried oregano
salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
hot sauce, to taste
2 - 4 Tbs. fresh basil, minced


  1. Soak cashews for an hour in hot water or overnight in room-temperature water. Drain.
  2. Place cashews in blender and add 3/4 cup water, 1 clove garlic, and bouillon; blend at highest speed until completely smooth; set aside until needed.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet, cook onion until it begins to brown, about 5-7 minutes; add red bell pepper and garlic, and cook for another minute; add chickpeas, kale, and two Tbs. of water; cover immediately and reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring often, until kale is tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add reserved cashew sauce, oregano, and salt, black pepper, and hot sauce to taste; cook, stirring, until sauce thickens; if sauce becomes too thick, add a little water.
  5. Add fresh basil and serve topped with Confetti Quinoa if desired.

Greens for Eye Health

Studies reveal that eating your greens will decrease your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the leading cause of blindness for people 65 and older.

Dark green leafy vegetables like kale and spinach are loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin. These antioxidants help defend the retina against free radicals and help maintain blood vessels in the macula. They also filter out blue light, which researchers believe is the most damaging to eyesight.

The Eye Disease Case-Control Study found that those with the highest blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin were 70% less likely to develop ARMD than those with the lowest levels. And people who ate spinach and collard greens five or more times a week had 43% less risk of ARMD than those who consumed the greens less than once a month. Moreover, the Nurses' Health Study found that eating spinach more than five days a week lowered risk by 47%.

Bob Barker Helps Animals

The price is right when it comes to Bob Barker’s support of animals. An outspoken animal advocate, Mr. Barker was recently honored at a prestigious event hosted by Mercy for Animals (MFA).

During the special evening, Bob Barker, the Emmy Award-winning host of The Price is Right, was presented with the 2011 Compassionate Leadership Award for his more than 30 years of groundbreaking activism on behalf of animals and his generous support of MFA's investigative efforts. Pledging to continue to support MFA's vital work on behalf of farmed animals, Mr. Barker presented the organization with a check for $250,000.

Mr. Barker frequently speaks out in support of MFA’s undercover investigations, which he said have “closed slaughterhouses and saved much suffering and animal cruelty in pig farms, chicken farms, dairy farms.”
