VEGAN VEGETARIAN SAUSAGE LUMPIA SPRING ROLLS With MUNG BEAN SPROUTS. RECIPE: (meatless, dairy and soy-free Filipino style) By L'dia Men-Na'a

INGREDIENTS: (FIELD ROAST) Meat Substitute

Thoroughly wash and rinse all vegetables then set aside to prepare.

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch scallions, (green onions) chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic chopped,
  • 12 small apple sausage, chopped (vegan)
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 9 small sweet red, (yellow or orange) peppers, chopped 2 lbs. Mung bean sprouts,
  • 9 small grape tomatoes, chopped
  • 7 white bok choy stalks, chopped (or substitute: 7 celery stalks chopped)

Olive oil for sautéing.

Sauté Vegetables (directions below: quickly cook while stirring each vegetable for about 1 minute or less. Vegetables should still be slightly crunchy and colors brightly enhanced, not dull. If colors become dull vegetables cooked too long)

COOKING DIRECTIONS:

In a skillet, heat enough olive oil to sauté onion till they turn translucent (about 1 minute), then add tomatoes sauté till color changes (about 1 minute) , remove to a bowl and set aside. Add to skillet vegetarian sausage, scallions, garlic, sauté them all (for about 1 minute), then remove to the bowl with the onions and tomatoes. Add to the skillet carrots, sauté till crisp shiny and still sweet (for about 1 minute) then remove adding to the bowl with the onion, tomatoes, vegetarian sausage, scallions, and garlic. Lastly, sauté mung bean sprouts (for only 30 seconds), then remove and add to the bowl with the other cooked vegetables. Combine together all vegetables and sausage in a colander (bowl with holes), then stir as you are draining the excess oil and liquid. (save this liquid, it can be used for making rice)

 SEASON:

Keep the vegetable mixture in the colander bowl, and season with

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil,
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt,
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander spice
  • 2 tablespoons Ajimirin cooking wine (precaution: avoid if pregnant)

With a separate spoon taste the mixture, add more seasonings, if you desire more flavor. Stir again, so that excess liquid is drained from the vegetables. Peel the lumpia wrappers from the package and separate. on a separate plate.

Place 1 wrapper on plate and add1/4 cup of the drained mixture to wrapper. (if mixture is too wet, the wrapper will tear) Fold and seal in vegetables. (follow the instructions on the package) then deep fry wrapper with sealed in vegetables inside till wrapper is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on high heat. (If vegetables become unsealed due to wetness, the wrappers will break during the frying process. If heat is too low, wrapper will be softer and not as crisp) If using a skillet instead of a "Deep fryer" to fry wrappers in, cook on medium/high heat for about 2 minutes, then turn over and cook the other side for about 2 minutes. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Garnish with slices of oranges Serve as a meal with a green vegetable: Broccoli, Spinach, Bok Choy, and brown rice noodles mixed with sautéed vegetables. Recommended dipping sauce: Pineapple & Honey sauce Sweet Thai chili sauce Tangerine vinaigrette Ginger sweet and spicy cooking sauce. Recipe makes about 8 cups of mixture filling Facebook: Pre-Birth Parenting &

POSTPARTUM: COOKING SOUPS AHEAD:

SUPPORT FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS WHEN HAVING A BABY Often times it's very challenging to cook for the younger children during the last weeks of the 3rd trimester of pregnancy and during the postpartum time (4th phase) of recovery after having a baby. Making casseroles ahead of time to store in the freezer, or making several bowls of soup to store in the freezer can be a big help with the children. Ask those who have similar nutritional and food habits as your own to support you by making soups and separate them in small containers ahead of time. You or the older children can heat up portions for themselves and the smaller children during your recovery period.

WHAT POSITIVE PARENTING TEACHES: HEALTHY NUTRITIONAL AWARENESS:

  • LENTIL BEANS & IRON
  • VITAMINS: B1, B6, pantothenic acid ,folate,
  • MINERALS: copper, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, iron, protein

Lentils are believed to have originated in central Asia, dating back 8000 years they were found at archeological sites in the Middle East. Lentils are mentioned in the Bible. Lentils spread throughout Africa and Europe during migrations. Before the 1st century AD, they were introduced into India, a country whose traditional cuisine makes the spiced lentil dish known as dal. The leading commercial producers of lentils include India, Turkey, Canada, China and Syria.

MAKING BEAN SOUPS TO GET CHILDREN TO EAT THEIR VEGETABLES

Parents soon learn that young children love their fruit: apples, berries, pears, melons, etc... but often have challenges getting their children to eat their vegetables. Chopping up vegetables such as: small sweet red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, sweet yellow onions, white garlic and adding a touch of golden turmeric herb to a soup in the end, not only adds nutrients, it also makes the soup healthy and pretty. It's one way to get children to enjoy eating the beautiful colors of vegetables in a tasty broth.

There are few types of beans that children can grow to love

  • [_] small white navy bean
  • [_] small pink navy beans
  • [_] small red navy beans
  • [_] azuki bean
  • [_] lentil beans

The benefits of making lentil bean soup is that it's fast, easy, and nutritious.

The 7 colors relate to specific subtle energy vibration & it’s association with the body’s glands, organs & nervous system plexuses. Matched with colors & season, foods are mathematically categorized for vibrational balancing & healing.  All seasons carry vibrational energy, it is dependent upon when & how the sun is actually hitting the earth.  This is where the vibrational levels to food come in.  The shape of the food is also involved.  It’s all mathematics.  The pear is the shape of a woman’s uterus.  Certain fruits look like the labia of a woman as the cantaloupe melon.  If you turn a food the right way it may look like some part of the female or the male body, which also gives you an indication of it’s healing qualities.  The earth mimics the body.

MACA IS GOOD FOR MORE THAN YOUR MOJO BY DR. MERCOLA
MACA BENEFITS FOR MEN AND WOMEN

Maca is reported to improve libido in men, without affecting testosterone or any other sex hormone. This root has demonstrated an increase in:

  • [_] sperm counts
  • [_] sperm motility
  • [_] semen volume
  • [_] strength
  • [_] endurance
  • [_] sex drive.

PROSTATE ISSUES For older men, prostate issues may appear. Maca has been shown in animal studies to deal with two of the most troubling by reducing prostate size16 and possibly reducing men's prostate cancer risk, although more tests are needed.

MENOPAUSE ISSUES: For women, studies have shown maca to have positive effects on female hormones balancing the amount of estrogen that a woman produces and thus improving symptoms: 

  • [_] PMS
  • [_] anxiety
  • [_] depression
  • [_] irregular menstrual cycles
  • [_] menopause
  • [_] hot flashes
  • [_] increased sexual libido

Estrogen levels that are either too high or too low can make it difficult for a women to ovulate and become pregnant.  Therefore balancing the amount of estrogen that a women produces, and in turn the amount of related progesterone produced, is very important for increasing reproductive health, fertility, and decreasing symptoms related to PCOS- like irregular menstrual cycles, excess hair growth, and more.

Women’s Hormones, Fertility, and Sexual Health A 2008 study from the journal Menopause showed that maca benefits had positive results on boosting menopausal women’s moods and decreasing levels of anxiety and depression. The same study also showed that the improvement in mood led to increased sexual libido. (5)  A separate study done in 2008 by CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics showed that maca had the ability to increase sexual libido in women, likely due to its positive effects on serotonin levels, the “feel good” hormone.

A positive attribute of using maca for increased energy compared to using caffeine is that maca does not give most people “jitters” or a sense of shakiness like high levels of caffeine can. Clinical trials have shown that maca has positive effects on energy, stamina, and mood. Maintaining positive energy levels is related to having lower levels of anxiety and depression, both of which maca has been shown to positively help achieve.

MACA SIDE EFFECTS

Though maca has been safely consumed for thousands of years, there is still more to learn about the exact safety and side effects of using maca for medicinal benefits. (2) Because of maca’s effects on hormone levels, physicians believe that maca should not be consumed by people who rely on hormone-altering medications for treatment of illnesses like breast cancer or prostate cancer, for example, or for other serious conditions.

Caution: People who have high blood pressure are also advised to not consume maca. More research is still needed on whether or not maca is safe for use in pregnant or nursing women. So, until it is confirmed to be safe, it is best for these women to avoid maca.

HOW TO USE MACA

Many people use maca by adding it in powdered form to different recipes that adjust well to the slight sweetness of maca. While not overly sweet tasting, maca has a natural nutty, slightly sweet quality to it, similar to cinnamon or nutmeg. The taste of maca root blends well when added to a fruit smoothie, oatmeal, or cereal.
