Can't wait to try some (all) of these!!!

Saturday August 1 starting day!

Thanks for the list of recipes. I've really wanted to get totally into doing the Challenge and changing mine and my husband's eating to improve our health and energy and receive the blessings discussed in the WoW. But unemployment for nearly a year, then the decision to go into business for ourselves has meant we needed to rely on what is in our freezer-mostly meats and chicken- and food storage. Even the few trips we have made to use the Bishop's Storehouse didn't help a lot, since there were not a lot of veggies or fruits even during this season of growing. I also find that most recipes for WFPB eating require quite a bit of prep time and cooking/baking, mixing, chopping, and are time consuming. Starting a business is taking up quite a bit of time, and the time to fix meals is getting put off for "another time". Hopefully, there will come a time when I can become a successful Daniel's Challenge participant!

Hello James, My question is about sweeteners and addiction. I have followed Original Fast Foods since owning the first edition and then for the past 14 months I have gone even deeper in my understanding of food addictions by following Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live. I have completely cut out sugar, honey, maple syrup and every other sweetener except raisins and dates sparingly. In this manner, I have lost more weight than I ever did before. With Original Fast Foods I lost about 40 pounds and maintained around 160 (I am 5'8"), but with the ETL, when cutting out all sweeteners, except an occasional date and some dried currants on some oatmeal or in salad dressings, I lost down to 135, a weight I had not achieved since I was 14 years old (35 years ago). This has been huge for me and I have rejoiced all this year! 

Last night, as I read over your meal suggestions, I noticed the honey and maple syrup in your recipes and was surprised. I wonder if you have not experienced, whether for yourself or for others, the addiction of overeating when using honey or maple syrup. 

Thank you for your observation. There is great wisdom in eliminating all sweeteners except whole-food sweeteners such as dates, raisins, and whole fruits. Just this week I have been modifying the recipes further to include only whole-food sweeteners in them. For example, we made hummus and fresh tomato sauce (raw) with just one date to add the sweetness. Of course, whenever you use whole foods as sweeteners, they contribute all balancing nutrients that are available with the sugar the contribute. Refined sweeteners lead to the demineralization of the body, and should be avoided. I have been experimenting with cold-pressed, unfiltered honey. It is a whole food that has not had any electrical, gas, or other man-induced heats used in the process of extracting honey. Typical "raw honey" is not "cold pressed" and a certain amount of heat is used that is believed by experts to destroy some of the health properties associated with honey. Thanks again.
