Better than Butter!

24 Jul

So you want to eat healthy? Former Motowner  and family friend Aidan Altman along with his partner Andrew McClure have created a product that’s vegan, healthy and a butter substitute. You know that gooey liquid found in a can of chickpeas? Well, they have combined it with coconut oil to make Faba Butter.

It was recently on the Today show as one of 15 new healthy snacks this summer.

The New York Times just featured Faba Butter in the article, “I can’t believe it’s chickpeas,” by Florence Fabricant. Read it here for more details as it’s even effective for sauteing and or just perfect with a baguette.

Healthy New Year: Finding a Greener Space

So, let’s start this New Year off healthy. Joel Kahn, a Detroit cardiologist, opened up a Motown restaurant with his son Daniel. It’s GreenSpace Cafe  located in Ferndale, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Not only do you get to experience great food, you have the stamp of approval from a heart doctor.

The menu features some delicious vegan options like the teriyaki mushrooms (above) which are glazed with house-made bourbon teriyaki and garnished with Asian slaw, bib lettuce and chives.

Of course, there’s a Michigan salad with dried cherries and home-made cashew herb chevre. The root salad is another healthy choice.  A crowd pleaser is the pad thai, gluten free with rice noodles that can also be served nut free.

The unique feature is the raw juice bar complete with hard liquor. The number one selling drink is the Greenhouse made with gin, Drought #3  (apple, kale, lemon, celery & ginger), elderflower, orange and Cava.  A healthy cosmopolitan!

What are your healthy tips for starting off the New Year?

“Food is medicine,” says Joel Kahn M.D. I recently heard this cardiologist at a lunch and learn for Beaumont Health System employees. The most potent medicine is not always found in the pharmacy, but in your refrigerator. Fruits and vegetables are key to a healthy diet. His book, The Holistic Heart, offers many tips and secrets to treat and prevent heart disease.   His message was inspiring, informative and humorous at times. According to Dr. Kahn, “Don’t buy your food where you buy gas!”
