Cauliflower and collards are so closely related there is no reason they can't be prepared the same way as you discovered. Sometimes farmer's markets have cauliflower or broccoli greens they will give away, and of course you can grow your own fairly easily.  Just stay out of those farmers fields unless it is a u-pick farm. ;-) Enjoy.

I believe that it is shortsighted to think that these industrially produced substitutes for meat are better ecologically or are the answer to climate change. These alternatives do not take into consideration the enormous amounts of energy (produced primarily from fossil fuels) needed to create them. Add that to the realization that our bodies do not recognize the artificial substances produced in these labs and we may want to look to naturally produced local foods. Your digestive symptoms are telling you something.  We cannot ignore our nutrient requirements. The law of nature is that for anything to live something else must die. The problem we have now is the enormous waste in the mass produced systems we currently employ. Focus on eating in balance with nature. Anything less than 1000 years old is an experiment.
Nutrition Talk / Re: OATS - good or bad?

The answer is that it depends. How do you feel? If you digest the oats well (no notice of any digestive issues)  and consume adequate proteins and minerals generally then you need not worry about eating "raw" oats. When people do not have adequate digestion and if they depend on oats as their source of minerals and protein (as in a vegan diet) deficiencies may result. You may find that by soaking the oats overnight you feel more energy because you can digest them better. Soaking, sprouting or fermenting grains, beans, nuts and seeds makes them more digestible and reduces enzyume inhibitors in these potential plants.

Sound like you may want to focus on boosting your immune system and adrenals (which also regulates immunity). I would recommend that you see a nutritionist so they can evaluate your diet and life style habits in detail. Meanwhile start with getting 8+ hours of sleep in the dark, along with skilled relaxation 20 minutes twice per day.  Avoiding toxins generally will help your liver, which will boost energy and help lift brain fog. Some of the protocols that are recommended for candida will also help those with mold related issues. If you can space your meals 4-5 hour apart it will allow the digestive system to rest and repair. Check your stomach acid to allow good protein digestion to provide the resources for nervous system balance and repair. It takes time to heal so be patient and consistent.
Hi Bauman Community!

I know a great hypnotherapist who helps people change their eating habits (as well as quit smoking!). He's looking to connect with NC's who have clients that have trouble implementing their nutrition recommendations. (Who doesn't??) If you are interested in connecting with him, please reach out to me at

Nutrition Talk / Impossible Foods
« Last post by gigitsakiris on June 11, 2019, 02:35:33 AM »
There are new alternatives popping up following new trends in the food industry, coupled with the alarming effects of climate change on agriculture.

I myself have tried impossible foods multiple times, but have had extremely bad reactions to it - specifically excessive bloating. However, when it comes down to the mission behind Impossible foods, and taking into account the mindset of most meat eaters, I do believe that it is a way to get people to change their mindset about what meat truly is. For instance, when I had met with the representative of Impossible Foods, he had mentioned that when talking to prospective buyers, he asks "do you eat meat because you enjoy the fact that the animal is slaughtered, or do you eat it simply for the taste and nutrients."

At the end of the day impossible foods is a processed food, and I personally prefer eating only wholesome foods. However, do you think that impossible foods is a good thing or bad thing for the food industry? With the way things are going, I can only imagine that more of these companies will come into fruition, and with the lack of resources that we are going to face, unfortunately we will have to find other alternatives to wholesome food items.
Nutrition Talk / Re: How to make school lunches/snacks healthier?

Hi Caryn,
One of our former grads has specialized in lunches for her 2 young boys. Check out to see Leah Vachani's suggestions and tell her I sent you. Check out her Lunchbox Gallery. I find the best lunchse and snacks involve input from the kid who is supposed to eat it! Within the healthy foods let them have choices and get them involved in packing them for themselves. Good luck.
Nutrition Talk / Re: food sensitivity tests
« Last post by Laura Knoff on June 07, 2019, 12:03:37 PM »
Hi Trina,
Yes, there are several companies that test for food allergies and also some that test for non antibody reactions to foods also. All the antibody labs use the same technology, but the number of samples they use to eliminate errors and the portions of the foods they test against varies. For IgG and IgA antibody blood tests the most extensive and accurate at this time is by Cyrex but is also the most costly. They also test for reactions to food additives and they have a separate test for 12 components of wheat. Immunolabs is my other recommendation and they let you choose how many and what kinds of foods they test (including Kosher, vegetarian or childrens' panels). Genova does a good job, but are as pricy as the Cyrex test for fewer substances. I would avoid the tests that only use a blood spot for antibody testing as they may not have as much accuracy with so little sample. The Mediator Response tests for non antibody reactions can also help identify what foods to avoid. The most accurate, but difficult way to determine food sensitivities is with the Elimination diet with provocative food testing and can be done at home (with a practitioners support). Good luck.
