    Rachel Weston - Author of “New Jersey Fresh: Four Seasons From Farm to Table”

    in Radio

    Since NJ is the Garden State, Jersey Fresh takes on a special meaning for those who choose to buy their fruits and veggies locally. Seasonal abundance can be found at the scores of farmer’s markets throughout the state. What’s that you say? You don’t know where to find the nearest farmer’s market and don’t even know the difference between an acorn squash and a fava bean? And how do I cook rhubarb and what do I do with all those blueberries?  Problem solved. Chef and culinary instructor Rachel Weston is on the case. Weston is an award-winning journalist with over 20 years of experience as a writer, editor and multimedia content producer. Her work has been in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The Gutsy Gourmet column in The Star-Ledger, NJ.com, and Chow.com among others. In 2008, Rachel followed her passion, attended culinary school, and ultimately worked the line at a fine dining restaurant, and was the founding chef at the first pay-what-you-can community cafe on the East Coast. Rachel’s book is New Jersey Fresh: Four Seasons from Farm to Table. It’s a collection of recipe ideas and tips for over 50 types of locally grown produce available at NJ farmer’s markets. She spotlights several markets and offers insights on fruits and veggies, from bok choy and fava beans to blueberries, corn, tomatoes, and peaches. Rachel takes the guesswork out of buying locally and is committed to teaching home cooks about using local and seasonal foods in their kitchens. “I wanted it to be a guide you could throw in your market bag,” she says. The book includes a listing of over 100 farmer's markets in NJ. After the interview, check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    The Chef Who Healed Himself - Eating for Meaning

    in Nutrition

    To heal yourself through food is my wish for all of you, this is Eating for Ultimate Meaning. So of course I jumped when recently I met an inspiring guy at Flavorpill in Soho. We were there for my astrologer, Monty Taylor's debut.  James Ray; First I met him, then I ate his raw chia seed pudding with blueberries and kudzu root and his raw cacao bars. Then I fell into a deep bond with him, because this is what gloriously food does sometimes. He is a spritely young guy named James, who comes from a long line of Italian Mama style chefs. James intuitively turned to veganism in order to heal himself of an enzyme deficiency, teaching himself to grow food and feed his own body and soul through cooking. Now he provide to New York's Elite.


    On this episode of Eating for Meaning Dr. Millie will interview James Ray, a raw vegan chef from New York and learn about his condition, his inspirations, his recipes and likely he will reveal some cooking secrets. Check out his website so you can book him: www.chefjamesray.com

    HOW TO UNLOCK YOUR CHRISTOS / YOUR TRUE CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS

    in Religion

    If you had a Lamborghini you wouldn’t fill it full of cheap, dirty fuel, would you? If you want your SOUL to operate like a highly tuned, high performance machine, you also need to be very mindful of what you fuel/spirit you put in it.



    There has been a lot of research into the relationship between food and cognitive function. You may wish to research this question further but there are a few important guiding principles. Avoid processed ‘junk’ food as much as you can and eat fresh food often. Omega 3 oil should also be an essential component to your diet as there is excellent evidence in its’ role in supporting healthy brain function. Include lots of antioxidants, like blueberries and foods high in vitamin C and make sure you exercise regularly.
     


    The secret to unlocking your true "CHRISTOS" power is really no secret at all. As you acknowledge the wonder that is yourself and your POSITION IN CHRIST, you will be motivated to take good care of the gift that you have. Meditation, belief, good fuel and exercise are the simple keys to unlocking your true potential.

    RJ Thesman,"Intermission for Reverend G"

    in Books

    Three months after a fire ripped through Cove Creek Assisted Living Facility, repairs are complete, but even as Reverend G and her cat, Gabriel move back into their apartment, the retired pastor realizes life just isn’t the same. She continues to minister to her fellow residents — the widower who reads the same book over and over and the woman who waits by the front door for the family who never arrives. Even Gabriel is back at work, making his rounds and forecasting death. But while Reverend G is able to find the words to conduct a funeral service, anticipates the birth of her first grandchild and plans her future with her beloved, Chris, she battles her worsening Alzheimer’s symptoms — memory loss, paranoia, anger and fear. Now, her worst nightmare seems to be coming true. God hasn’t spoken to her in weeks. Has Reverend G lost her connection with God?


    RJ Thesman has been a writer since she flipped open her Red Chief tablet and scribbled her first story. After writing 4 non-fiction books and almost 500 articles, she woke up one day with a novel in her head. That novel became "The Unraveling of Reverend G."


    Thesman enjoys teaching writing workshops and helping writers birth their words. She is a certified life coach, works as a writing coach and as a coach for women who are Starting Over Single.


    Thesman is the mother of an adult son, and she enjoys reading, gardening and cooking - especially anything with blueberries. Thesman lives in the heart of Kansas with her son and an elderly cat.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Everything You Need To Know About Protein

    in Fitness

    What is Protein?


    See also: What is Fibre?


    The word ‘protein’ refers to a type of molecule in food that can be broken down into amino acids. The body needs twenty amino acids - as a biological machine it can create (or synthesize) eleven of these itself.  However there are nine, called ‘essential amino acids’ that the body cannot create and has to gain through the consumption of food. 


    These ‘essential amino acids’ are: Tryptophan, Threonine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Valine and Histidine.  


    When we eat, the body breaks down the protein in food in order to create the amino acids that it needs.


    Although most foods contain protein some foods are richer in some of the essential amino acids than others. Usually, therefore, foods need to be combined so that the body receives all the amino acids it needs on a daily basis – part of the reason that a varied, balanced diet is essential to us.  For example, if you ate only blueberries you may start to lack the Tryptophan, Lysine and Histidine that your body needs - introducing some meat and/or cheese into your diet would help to address these deficiencies.

    Curtis Harwell & Richard Neal Discuss Recipes and Antioxidants and Food

    in Fitness

    USDA scientists analyzed antioxidant levels in more than 100 different foods, including fruits and vegetables. Each food was measured for antioxidant concentration as well as antioxidant capacity per serving size. Cranberries, blueberries, and blackberries ranked highest among the fruits studied. Beans, artichokes, and Russet potatoes were tops among the vegetables. Pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts ranked highest in the nut category.


    USDA chemist Ronald L. Prior says the total antioxidant capacity of the foods does not necessarily reflect their health benefit. Benefits depend on how the food's antioxidants are absorbed and utilized in the body. Still, this chart should help consumers trying to add more antioxidants to their daily diet.


    How Antioxidants Help Prevent Oxidation


    As oxygen interacts with cells of any type - an apple slice or, in your body, the cells lining your lungs or in a cut on your skin -- oxidation occurs. This produces some type of change in those cells. They may die, such as with rotting fruit. In the case of cut skin, dead cells are replaced in time by fresh, new cells, resulting in a healed cut.


    This birth and death of cells in the body goes on continuously, 24 hours a day. It is a process that is necessary to keep the body healthy. "Oxidation is a very natural process that happens during normal cellular functions," researcher Jeffrey Blumberg, PhD, professor of nutrition at Tufts University in Boston, tells WebMD.


    Yet there is a downside. "While the body metabolizes oxygen very efficiently, 1% or 2% of cells will get damaged in the process and turn into free radicals," he says.
