The Mother of all Chai: By Dr. Harsh K. Luthar

This morning I skipped breakfast and made instead the “Mother of all Chai”, my special Vegan Chai recipe.

I grated fresh ginger root, grated fresh turmeric root, added five cinnamon sticks (maybe more) and a lot of whole black peppers as well as lot of Fennel seeds, Anise seeds, and Ajwain seeds. Not stopping there, I added many whole Cloves and Cardamom seeds.

The I put the mix in a large pot of water and brought the pot to a boil.

After letting it simmer on low for ten minutes, I added loose black Darjeeling tea to the mix and let it simmer for 5 more minutes.

Using a strainer to pour the liquid in my Chai mug, I added Soy milk and then sweetened the mixture with stevia.

Finally, I sat down and sipped the Chai slowly and watched as this magical potion gently energized me and made me smile and sing.

Book Review of _The Blue Zones_: by Dr. Gregg Carter

Dan Buttner’s The Blue Zones (National Geographic Society, 2008) is a great read for those wanting to keep up with the science of aging but not wanting to read the associated academic journals. In the early 2000s, the National Geographic Society sent a team of longevity experts to those 4 slender geographic areas of the world where people are much more likely to attain the age of 100, in good health, than all other places on earth. The areas are Loma Linda, CA, USA (virtually all 7th-Day Adventists); the Nicoyan peninsula in Costa Rica; the interior hill country of Sardinia; and the northern interior of Okinawa. Though difficult to parse out, the teams found commonalities among these 4 Blue Zones and assessed that longevity was a function of these factors: Continue reading

How And Why I became a Vegetarian: By Tony O’Clery.

In 1985 on a visit to family in Australia I was on Bondi Beach, where I ate a hamburger. I fell asleep on the beach and had a strange dream that I was a cow. I saw the whole process of the slaughterhouse, including fear, smells, noises, terror, cruel treatment etc.

It was a horrifying nightmare and I awoke saying aloud ‘They know, they know they are to be cruelly slaughtered’. That day I became a vegetarian. I had always said that if I ever really thought about the morality of eating meat, I would probably stop. Continue reading
