Tasty Tempeh Stir-Fry

Tempeh (pronounced TEM-pay) is a high-protein soy food that originated over 2,000 years ago in present-day Indonesia. It can be found packaged in most grocery stores near the refrigerated tofu section. Tempeh on its own has a nutty, mild flavor, and some brands add whole grains or seeds like flaxseed to the tempeh for extra nutrients.


1 cup long grain brown rice
1 ½ cups water
1 package (7 oz.) of tempeh
1 zucchini
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 head of broccoli
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbs. of olive oil (for sautéing)
a dash of sesame oil (for flavoring)
slivered or toasted almonds, pine nuts, or cashews


  1. Measure one cup of rice and rinse it in a sieve or strainer; combine the rice with the water in a medium to large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. While the rice is cooking, cut the tempeh into approximately one-inch cubes or chunks, depending on your preference.
  3. Pour a tablespoon of olive oil into a deep frying pan and add the tempeh; as the tempeh is cooking, turn it frequently so that all sides are cooked. Note: Tempeh should be heated to 160 degrees Fahrenheit in order for it to be thoroughly cooked; it is done when it is browned and crispy on all sides, but still soft in the middle.
  4. Remove the tempeh with tongs and drain the excess oil on a paper towel.
  5. Dice and chop some of the onion and all of the garlic, then wash and chop the veggies; add more oil to the frying pan and add the onion, garlic, and veggies until they're cooked without being mushy. Alternatively, use a wok to stir fry the vegetables.
  6. Combine the rice, tempeh, and vegetables in a bowl; add a small amount of sesame oil and a handful or more of slivered or toasted almonds, pine nuts, or cashews; toss.

Meat Hot Dogs & Diabetes

A new study from Harvard School of Public Health reports that processed meats have a "shockingly high" association with type 2 diabetes. A daily serving of 50 grams of processed meat, about the same as two slices of cold cuts or one hot dog, can increase your risk of the disease by 50 percent, according to the researchers. And that applies to anyone, fat or slim. Unprocessed meats, such as ground beef and pork, can also raise your diabetes risks.

The research, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is based on data from more than 200,000 adults, some of whom have been followed for 30 years.

Replacing a daily serving of meat with a serving of nuts or whole grains is associated with a 21 or 23 percent lower risk of diabetes respectively.
