In this interview, Dr. McDougall discusses his thoughts on transitioning to a starch based lifestyle. He discusses some common topics and answers these questions: 1) What changes do you see in your 10 day program within the body once you begin to do this? Eating starch based, what are the benefits to the body? 2)Why is it important for a person to let their doctor know that they are participating in a 10 day plant based challenge? Would you recommend doing bloodwork before you being? 3) 4. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard you say The Fat you eat is the fat you wear. So many defend their oil and say you need it for the brain to function properly. What is the best response to these people… But I also want to understand the science behind fats for the brain. 4) Another concern is I will become anemic eating this way. Can this diet make you anemic and if so, what can you do? 5) 9. Questions have arose in my past challenges on MWL….so who better to ask than you? In your book, you want us to stay away from processed foods, pasta, sugar, flour etc. but yet… in the book you have a breakfast recipe for couscous and allow rice cakes. Would you share your thoughts?

These fresh corn tortillas are slightly thicker than a typical store-bought corn tortilla and the flavor is so much better. You can customize them by adding the spices you enjoy such as garlic, chili powder, or cumin. The key to this recipe is masa harina which is traditional corn flour. I purchased mine at a mainstream grocery store, but there are many brands on the market to choose from online. Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 15-20 minutes Yield: 16-18 tortillas Ingredients: 2 cups masa harina flour 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon garlic powder 2 teaspoons chili powder Juice of one lime 1 1/2 cups warm water Directions: 1. Combine the flour, sea salt, garlic powder, and chili powder and mix thoroughly. 2. Add the lime juice and warm water and mix with your hands. Knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until the dough forms into a ball. The dough should have the feel of play dough and be slightly springy to the touch. If the dough feels too dry and is breaking up, add a bit more water. 3. Allow the dough to rest for 20-30 minutes. 4. Form the dough in 15-20 equal sized balls. 5. Using a tortilla press or plate, sandwich the dough balls between parchment paper or plastic (I cut a gallon baggie). Press until you have tortillas about the size of a small pancake. 6. Place the tortillas on a hot nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tortillas 1-2 minutes on each side. The tortillas should bubble and puff up slightly, this means they are cooking on the inside as well. Both sides should be dry to the touch and have a slightly golden toasted look. 7. Serve them warm or form them into tacos by placing them into a 400° oven for 5-8 minutes. You can also cut them into triangles and bake them in the oven for 5-8 minutes making corn tortillas chips. https://www.plantpurechef.com/blog-la9vd/muffin-formula-101 Muffin Formula 101 Ingredients: Dry Ingredients: 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (OR oat flour) 2 teaspoons baking powder 1-2 teaspoons dried spices (cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, allspice…) ¼ teaspoon sea salt 1 cup dried or fresh fruit (blueberries, chopped apples, cranberries, raisins, dried cherries…) ½ cup finely chopped nuts (optional) Wet Ingredients: 1 tablespoon flax meal + 3 tablespoons water (egg replacer) 1 cup unsweetened nondairy milk ¼ cup sweetener (maple syrup, coconut sugar, date sugar, date syrup…) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or preferred flavoring such as almond, lemon, or coconut extracts) ½ cup fruit puree and/or nut butters (Try any combination of bananas, applesauce, pumpkin, sweet potato puree, or almond/peanut/cashew butter.)

Power food for the brain - or how to avoid dementia Difference between dementia and alzheimer Dementia is an umbrella term for a set of symptoms including impaired thinking and memory. ... Dementia is the name for a group of brain disorders that make it hard to remember, think clearly, make decisions, or even control your emotions. Alzheimer’s disease is one of those disorders, but there are many different types and causes of dementia. Dementia isn’t just about simple memory mishaps -- like forgetting someone’s name or where you parked. A person with dementia has a hard time with at least two of the following: Memory Communication and speech Focus and concentration Reasoning and judgment Visual perception (can’t see the difference in colors or detect movement, or sees things that aren’t there) Since some types of dementia share similar symptoms, it can be hard for a doctor to figure out which one you or your loved one has. Be sure to tell him about all symptoms, medication and alcohol use, and previous illnesses to help him make the right diagnosis. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) This is the most common type of dementia. About 60% to 80% of people who have dementia have Alzeheimer’s. It’s a progressive condition, which means it gets worse over time, and it usually affects people over 65 years old. There’s currently no cure. It happens when proteins (called plaques) and fibers (called tangles) build up in your brain and block nerve signals and destroy nerve cells. Memory loss may be mild at first, but symptoms become worse over time. β-amyloid protein (Aβ) in the brain Tease apart - find , Cu, Zn, Fe Cu, Fe are unstable - cause free radicals - which attacks the brain Zn seems to cause the formation of of these plaques - Cu and Fe also do this….
