Mushroom Meat

Tomorrow, March 20th, thousands of caring people across the globe will be celebrating Meatout, the world's largest and oldest grassroots diet education campaign! This recipe is perfect for the occasion, making a great addition to any dish. Add it to tacos, fill ravioli, or cobble together a homemade veggie burger. For an Italian variation, add fresh herbs. Or make a Mexican version with poblano peppers and chili powder. The possibilities are endless.


¼ cup black olives
5 cloves garlic
6 drops liquid smoke (or soy sauce)
¼ cup olive oil
16 oz. mushrooms (any kind)
4 cups eggplant, peeled & diced
1 cup onion, diced
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper


  1. In a food processor, make a paste out of the olives, garlic, liquid smoke, and olive oil; set mixture aside in a bowl.
  2. Add mushrooms, stems and all, to food processor and pulse until finely chopped; dump processed mushrooms onto a large, rimmed sheet pan.
  3. Pulse eggplant in food processor and dump onto the sheet pan with the mushrooms; repeat this process with the onion.
  4. Drizzle mound of mushrooms, eggplant and onion with olive and garlic paste, and using your hands, toss it all together.
  5. Spread mixture evenly over the sheet pan; sprinkle mixture with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake at 350F degrees for a total of 30 minutes; turn the mixture over a few times with a spatula. The mixture will release a lot of juice, and then it will start to dry out; once most of the liquid has evaporated or been absorbed, the mixture is ready. Allow it to cool in the pan.

Meat & Premature Death

Eating red meat — any amount and any type — significantly increases the risk of premature death, according to a study that examined the eating habits and health of more than 110,000 adults for more than 20 years.

Adding just one 3-ounce serving of unprocessed red meat to one's daily diet was associated with a 13% greater chance of dying during the course of the study. Adding an extra daily serving of processed red meat, such as a hot dog or two slices of bacon, was linked to a 20% higher risk of death during the study.

The researchers also discovered that replacing red meat with other foods seemed to reduce mortality risk for study participants. Eating a serving of nuts instead of beef or pork was associated with a 19% lower risk of dying during the study. Choosing whole grains as a substitute was linked with a 14% reduction in mortality risk.

Previous studies had associated red meat consumption with diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Scientists suspect it’s the iron and saturated fat in meat, the nitrates used to preserve them, and the chemicals created by high-temperature cooking that make it so dangerous.
