Understanding Deep Vein Thrombosis: Risk Factors, Signs, and Management

Recently I heard that a family member in her early 50s was being seen by a doctor for DVT and that she was hoping that there was a more natural way of dealing with it than the medications her doctor was prescribing. When I had digested this scrap of family ''information,'' I thought about my own lax position (denial, really) and how it would make sense for me to make some changes in my life while I still have some shreds of health and potential fitness. And, of course, I have inherited my mother's compulsive pop reading habit (in my case, the Internet mostly). So, I decided to research and write an article that would incorporate some preventative and alternative health principles into my life that might make DVT somewhat less likely to catch up with me than is likely the case now. I would also like to see our family member above and others benefit from these principles if they decide that they want to. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a critical health concern that af

Lazy Perogy Vegan Poutine with Mushroom and Onion Sauce

This perogy poutine is right out of my head, so please feel free to improve upon it, eliminate and add ingredients, do whatever you need to do to make it seem like a lazy perogy version of poutine for you. That said, my husband raved about this particular vegan perogy-poutine recipe and said it was his fave of the three variations (the other two being: Poutine with Cheesy Smoky White Sauce and Poutine with Fat-Free Cheesy Nacho Sauce , also both vegan, of course).  So maybe the ingredients are just right for you as well.  You will have to try it and see what you think.  Mildred Moon is now making Vegan Perogy Poutine for sale in her Food Truck at the Comox Valley Saturday Farmer's Market 9am-1pm  LAZY PEROGY VEGAN POUTINE with MUSHROOM and ONION SAUCE 650 g/ 1 1/2 pounds  frozen potato fries The Mushroom and Onion Sauce: 2 T.      cooking oil (I used olive oil) 1          organic mushroom bouillon cube ("Go Bio" brand) (optional) 1/2 lb.  crimini mushroom

Vegan Poutine with Really Cheesy Fat-Free Vegan Nacho Sauce

The recipe for 'really cheesy fat-free vegan cheese' is based on a surprising recipe from a video by Jill McKeever, the guru over at Simple Daily Recipes. We love it in our family. The 'surprise ingredient' and the lack of any fats make it a real winner for our digestive systems, and I would imagine you will also find that... although, I am not a physician or a nutritionist, and would suggest you go by what those folks have advised you. This is how the Really Cheesy Fat-Free Vegan Nacho Cheese recipe goes with my additions to Jill's base: Makes about 3 cups 1/2 cup rolled oats 1/3 cup nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons cornstarch 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/4 cup roasted red bell pepper 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Sweet Paprika 1/4 teaspoon Chipotle pepper powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups water Place all ingredients in a blender and process several minutes until very smooth and we

Vegan Poutine with Smoky White Cheesy Sauce

So, March forward I will with delicious potato recipes as a highlight of the pure joy and potato nutrition that abounds in our everyday world. Poutine is truly French Fries drowned in melted cheese curds and fatty gravy. Delicious by all accounts. But not so much a thrill for vegans, of course (or the poor critters that go into the fatty gravy). However, take a look! There are several vegan poutine recipes online. Most of them have replicated the fatty gravy and dense, gluey cheese curds with a scary closeness. The vegan poutine sauce/gravy in this recipe is a little less fatty, but the nuts and seeds (cashews and tahini)have the reqired mouth appeal, and the liquid hickory smoke gives them a scrumptuous rustic je ne sais quoi.   Try the recipe.  Doctor it up and let me know what you think. Get your fries out of the freezer.  Read the instructions  package to bake your fries crispy,  Set the oven or prep your air fryer. Meanwhile: Ingredients for Smoky White Cheese
