Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Taliban’s backyard75% (13)
Anyone who despairs of the individual’s power to change lives has to read the story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of Pakistan’s treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers and promised to build them a school. Over the next decade he built fifty-five schools—especially for girls—that offer a balanced education in one of the most isolated and dangerous regions on earth. As it chronicles Mortenson’s quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit.
From Viking Press

Flax Seed Bread Sliced
Part Two of my most fav simple lunch...the bread. This recipe is very low calorie- about 40 calories per slice. I like to put 1 tbsp vegan mayo (90 cals) and pile on sprouts...that is it! Recipe: 1 tablespoon active dry yeast 1 3/4 cups of warm water 1/8 cup raw sugar 1 tablespoon canola oil 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup flaxseed meal 2 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup all-purpose flour Dissolve your yeast in the warm water. This takes about 5 minutes -- the water will become creamy-looking. Add to this the sugar, oil, salt, flaxseed meal and one cup of whole wheat flour. Mix this with your spoon till it's incorporated. Add in the other cup of whole wheat flour and stir... then add in your one cup of all-purpose flour. Mix till it holds together -- this will only take a minute or two. Attach the dough hook to your stand mixer, put in the dough and let the mixer knead this dough for AT LEAST 10 minutes. If you don't have a stand mixer, then knead by hand on a floured countertop for about 10 - 15 minutes. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and put the dough into it, then spray the top of it. You just want to moisten the outside of it so it won't stick to the bowl. Let it rise till it has FULLY DOUBLED. Depending on the temperature, this could happen in about an hour, or upwards of two hours. Spray a bread pan (9" X 5") with cooking spray. Punch down your dough and put it into your bread pan. Shape it with your oil-covered hands so it fits snugly into the pan. Let the bread rise till it has come up about 1 1/2 inches above the top of the pan. Preheat the oven to 350F -- bake the bread for about 40 - 45 minutes. Cool then slice.Vegan Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Another experiment. They could be a little sweeter. I need to buy some date paste or date juice I think to sweeten them up a bit. I hate to rely on Splenda as a "healthy" way to sweeten things. Anyone else have ideas for ways to sweeten cookies up a bit without using maple syrup or sugar? 1/2 CUP WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR 1/4 CUP UNBLEACHED FLOUR 1/2 TSP SALT 1/2 TSP BAKING POWDER 1/2 TSP BAKING SODA 1/4 TSP CORNSTARCH 1 TBSP COCOA 3 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER 1 TBSP CINNAMON 3 TBSP OLIVE OIL 3 TBSP UNSWEETENED APPLESAUCE 3/4 CUP SPLENDA 2 TBSP HONEY 1/2 CUP VANILLA SOY YOGURT 1 TBSP VANILLA EXTRACT 2 1/2 CUPS ROLLED OATS 4 TBSP VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIPS Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place rack in middle of oven. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa and cornstarch into a bowl and set aside. In a food processor, add oil, applesauce, sugar, honey, yogurt, cinnamon, peanut butter and vanilla. Pulse into a consistency much like a regular cookie dough would be before the flour is added. Transfer mixture into a bowl and slowly stir in the dry flour mixture. When combined and smooth, add the rolled oats and chocolate chips. Spoon one inch balls onto cookie sheets. Cook for 7-8 minutes, you want them somewhat softish. Recipe should make 48 cookies. NUTRIONAL INFO PER COOKIE: 45.6 calories / 2g fat / .7g mono fat / 6.7g carbohydrates / .8g fiber / 1.2g protein
Great River Organic Milling is located on the upper Mississippi River, in the heart of what is called the Hiawatha Valley. The natural beauty of the area is a constant reminder of the importance of our commitment to organic agriculture. Organic, or sustainable agriculture is more than the avoidance of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. An organic farm strives to protect our environment by building and maintaining healthy soil which, in turn, improves water and air quality. It has been shown that grain and other food crops grown in a healthy soil, resist pests and diseases better than conventionally grown crops and also contain more vital nutrients important to humans. Consuming organic foods promotes the health of individuals and the land on which it was grown. In supporting organic agriculture we promote the cycle of a healthy environment which includes the lives of microorganisms, plants, and humans. Most Great River flour is stone-ground. We believe the natural granite millstones contribute to the quality, taste and nutritional integrity of whole grain flour. Grain flowing into the stones becomes very thin, flat flakes which integrates all parts of the wheat immediately into the flour, allowing the flour to have more flavor. The cooler milling occurring with stones allows important enzyme activity to continue. Protein levels will also be maintained. Our stone-ground flours are milled to order, to retain the nutritional value of the flour.Similar posts:
