13 Vegetables before 8AM!

13 Vegetables before 8AM!

March 24, 2018

Dear friends,

Dr. Cowan's approach to health has revolved around food since he was a medical student at Michigan State University, where he gave talks to other students on nutrition because they thought he knew more about food than the professors. Since then, he has read and lectured widely on food and counseled thousands of people with such health challenges as cancer, autoimmune disease, inflammatory bowel disease and heart disease on what to eat to heal and thrive. And what does Dr. Cowan love to do in his free time? Grow food (here, he's spreading compost), cook food, read about food and, occasionally, watch a film about food. 
Given this -- focus?! -- on food, we thought you'd be interested in what he eats most days for breakfast (see photo): two pastured eggs over-easy on sourdough toast, sprinkled with two or three of our organic vegetable powders, such as Kale or Swiss Chard or whatever else he fancies (he has 19 different jars of powders on his counter and in his cupboard!); greens from the Napa garden sautéed in butter and sprinkled with our Threefold Blend Powder (which has six vegetables); bone broth with more garden vegetables and two more powders blended with miso and topped with homemade sauerkraut. That equals about 13 vegetables in one meal. By 8 a.m., he's well on his way to his goal of 15 different vegetables a day. That's because he believes that diversity -- eating small amounts of a wide variety of vegetables -- is what's most important when it comes to vegetable consumption, not amounts in ounces.

By most accounts, I am a fairly experienced cook.  I have been the primary food preparer in my household for most of the past 40 years.  I have made hundreds of loaves of sourdough bread, starting from whole wheat or rye berries. I have six fermentation crocks, and one is going most of the time. I have made a variety of fermented “soft drinks,” my current favorite being various fruit-based shrubs.  One of Lynda’s nieces claims she likes to visit us in San Francisco at least partially to eat my food. Yet, I am only the second best Cowan male chef.

Sustainability is a frequently used word in today’s world.  People talk about sustainable buildings, sustainable agriculture, sustainable economics — even sustainable medicine.  I’m not sure a clear definition exists within any of these contexts, but I’d like to share what sustainable means to.

Leaky-Gut: 101
Leaky-Gut: 101

In many ways, our guts are like a grassy meadow.  In a healthy meadow, layers of protection prevent toxins from seeping into the valuable groundwater below.  The uppermost level is composed largely of grasses and other species of plant life, all with their roots and foliage intermixed into a kind of carpet. Living among the foliage are numerous animal organisms, from rabbits and mice to butterflies and caterpillars.  Hundreds if not thousands of species of plant, animal and insect life make up this outer layer.
