Curried "No Chicken" Salad

Hopefully spring has sprung where you live... because it's almost picnic season! Pack up your picnic basket or lunch box with this easy go-to classic with a twist. It's great served on its own, on a salad, or piled high on a sandwich. Follow the easy directions to give the tofu a great chewy texture. Then spice it up with curry for added zing.

Ingredients:
14 oz. extra firm tofu, frozen then thawed
3 tsp. canola oil
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. sliced green onion
2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Directions:
1. Drain tofu and wrap in cloth or paper towels. Press tofu for 20-30 minutes in order to remove as much water as possible.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare baking sheet by lightly greasing with oil.
3. Coarsely chop tofu and spread on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
4. Dry toast the almonds in a small frying pan over medium heat, stirring often. Once almonds begin to turn golden brown remove from heat.
5. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and serve as desired.

Healthy Foods Every Day

Nutritionist Cynthia Sass, in a column for Health.com, recently wrote about six foods she eats every day. All are vegan.

In her spotlight on avocados, Cynthia writes: "In addition to heart healthy fats called MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids), which have been shown to slash “bad” LDL cholesterol and up “good” HDL levels, avocados provide anti-aging, disease fighting antioxidants and nearly 20 different vitamins and minerals. A study out this year showed that avocado eaters have higher intakes of fiber, vitamins E & K, magnesium and potassium, and get this – they weigh less and have smaller waists without eating fewer calories!

These creamy gems also help your body absorb more antioxidants from other healthy foods. In one Ohio State study, when men and women ate salads and salsa peppered with 2.5 tablespoons of avocado, they absorbed over seven times more alpha-carotene and thirteen times more beta-carotene, which defend against cancer and heart disease."

Read more about the other healthy foods she recommends:
beans and lentils, ginger, almonds, citrus, and chocolate.


Michael Klaper: Man of Peace

Dr. Michael Klaper is a practicing physician with forty years of experience in general practice and acute care medicine. He is a champion of good health and nonviolent living.

Of his vegan journey, he writes, "After dealing with so much violence in the emergency rooms of Chicago hospitals, the Viet Nam war, and observing the effects of violence in people's daily lives in my medical practice... I had reached a point in my life where I knew I had to make a serious effort to rid my own being of violence -- my thoughts, words, and, above all, my actions...

One evening in late 1980, while at a restaurant consuming a steak dinner, I was expounding on my desire to rid my life of violence when my dinner companion pointed out that my peaceful goals were all well and good, but if I was truly concerned about reducing the level of violence in my life that I both experienced and caused, I should begin with that piece of meat on my plate...

As much as I did not want to face that fact, I heard a small voice within me saying, 'You know, he's right.' And that started my serious journey toward becoming a vegan."

Dr. Klaper has private medical practices in California and Hawaii.
He also provides private consultations by phone and Skype.
