Featured Recipe: Mushroom Stroganoff

Cookie Dough Ice Pops

Stroganoff originated in Russia as a beef dish served in a rich sour cream sauce. And though there are many versions of the original recipe, I prefer this plant-based one, made with rich porcini mushrooms and lots of fresh herbs.

Serves 4

2 large shallots, peeled and minced 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced 2 teaspoons minced thyme Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 teaspoon minced rosemary 1 pound portobello mushrooms, stemmed and cut into large pieces 1 ounce porcini mushrooms, soaked for 30 minutes in 1 cup of hot water that has just been boiled ½ cup dry white wine 1 pound whole-grain fettuccine, cooked according to package directions, drained, and kept warm 1 cup Tofu Sour Cream (recipe follows) Chopped parsley

Place the shallots in a large skillet and sauté over a medium heat for 8 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time to keep them from sticking. Add the garlic and thyme, and cook for another minute. Stir in the salt and pepper, rosemary, and the portobello mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the porcini mushrooms, and their soaking liquid, and the wine. Stir, and cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes.

When the stroganoff is finished cooking, stir in the sour cream. Add the cooked noodles and toss well. Serve garnished with the parsley.

Tofu Sour Cream

Use this healthy dairy alternative in any dish that calls for sour cream. Serve it with baked potatoes and fresh chives, with tacos or enchiladas, or with Mushroom Stroganoff.

Makes 1½ cups

1 package extra firm lite silken tofu, drained 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Chill until ready to serve.

The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga: The Philosophy and Practice of Yin Yoga

Bernie Clark’s The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga provides an in-depth look at the philosophy and practice of Yin Yoga with illustrated sections on how to practice Yin Yoga, including descriptions with photographs of 30 Yin Yoga asanas.

All forms of yoga can provide benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally, however Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body/heart/mind: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long-held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.

Clark presents comprehensive information on how to do the practice, including a deep look inside over two dozen Yin Yoga postures showing the benefit of the pose, how to get into and out of the pose, contraindications and warnings for those who may have trouble with particular aspects of the posture, and other important information. The benefits are explored in three main sections: the physiological benefits, the energetic benefits and the mental/emotional benefits.

The conservation of semen is very essential to strength of body and mind. Semen is an organic fluid, seminal fluid. Look younger, think cleverer, live longer, if you save semen. Veerya, dhatu, shukra or semen is life. Virginity is a physical, moral, and intelluctual safe guard to young man. Semen is the most powerful energy in the world. One who has master of this art is the master of all. Semen is truely a precious jewel. A greek philosopher told that only once in his life time. Conservation of seminal energy is s-formula. As you think, so you become. Semen is marrow to your bones, food to your brain, oil to your joints, and sweetness to your breath. Chastity no more injures the body and the soul.

Adventures of an Adorable Fat Girl: A gorgeous, big, new comedy heroine

Mary Brown is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight and can’t get into any of the dresses in Zara. Still, what does she care? She’s got a lovely new boyfriend and all is looking well…except when she accidentally gets herself in trouble at the silent auction, has to eat her lunch under the table in the pub because Ted’s workmates have spotted them, and has a young man’s testicles dangled into her face on a party boat to Amsterdam. Oh, and then there are all the issues with the hash-cakes. Besides all those things – everything’s fine…just fine!

The story is laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in.

Bernice Bloom is the big, new name in comedy writing…this is the second installment of her great new series of laugh-out-loud mini books.

You Still Got It, Girl! The After 50 Fitness Formula for Women

Eat more, exercise less, heal hormones, and boost energy for whole-you wellness! If you’re tired of the weight-loss, weight-gain roller coaster, overwhelmed with diet and exercise advice, and you want to avoid menopause weight gain or find a solution to low energy, high stress, stubborn pounds, and implement a smarter complete action plan that works and lasts, You Still Got It, Girl! The After 50 Fitness Formula for Women is for you. How many of these problems can you identify with?

“It doesn t matter if I eat ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ nothing seems to change.”
“I’m putting weight on in places I never had problems before.”
“I know I need to exercise, I just don t know what to do… and I don’t want to get hurt.”
“Every trainer or nutritionist I see gives me different advice whom do I believe?”
“When I couldn’t lose weight, my trainer said, ‘Well, you’re getting old.'”
“I’m willing to do it, if I know what it is!”

This book is different in two ways. First, the book brings together seven essential areas that science knows can no longer be addressed in isolation. Wonderful resource books exist for exercise, weight training, cardio, diet/nutrition, sleep, stress, and hormones. Yet, none of the existing titles help you understand the integration of these pieces so you can create a whole-person fitness plan.
Second, the book will be unique from other diet or exercise books in the way it is written and formatted. It features easy-to-read type, short paragraphs and quick-read lists and sidebars so you can absorb the information quickly.
Each chapter features a different contributing expert, or case studies and success stories. You don’t have to read this book front to back. You can take the assessment at the beginning of the book and then jump to the chapter you need most. Dump your thoughts of January resolutions when you’ve tried and failed to change everything at once. There is one thing that will have the greatest impact on your success. That’s where you should begin.
The book is written in a conversational style with insightful anecdotes, checklists, and self-assessment forms. Research on aging and every topic included in this book is exploding. We’ve learned more in the last five years than in the last 30. Don’t let the amount of research cited scare you. The text is designed to be a blend of science and boomer-to-boomer, over-the-fence conversation.
Logic will have you nodding in agreement to new information. Habit-gravity will have you pushing the same speed and incline on the treadmill as yesterday. This book provides interactive components to help you change your actions to change your results.
Chances are, if you re reading this, you’re not just frustrated with being overweight or having a few extra pounds. You suffer from infobesity. This book will help you spot seductive cover headlines that blindside you when you re vulnerable and help show you what really works.
If you’re ready to put yourself first and put old ideas aside, you can feel better in your second 50 than you’ve ever felt in your life.
