Turkey Pot Pies
Great Dinner for High Altitude & Budget Gourmet Dining & Hunting Camp - Roast the Whole Turkey for the Family and then make the base from the rendered turkey. Top with store bought puff pastry (or homemade - if you have the time) and Viola! A Gourmet Dinner. This is also good to "round up" for the diners to the table. (After 5 minutes which usually equals 7-10 minutes) When the pop the puff pastry the filling is smoking hot!

The Okinawa Food Pyramid - a new way to eat for weight loss and energy

The nutrition research has never been more consistent: A high-carbohydrate, plant-based diet is best for long-term health and weight maintenance (anything under a BMI of 23 is considered lean). The plant-base Okinawa Food Pyramid shown here divides foods into daily and weekly categories so that you can easily judge whether you are eating certain foods too often or not often enough. The USDA pyramid - the one recommended by our government - on the other hand, fails to point out the important differences in types of fats; does not emphasize low-fat dairy or whole grains; lumps meat in the same serving group as fish and beans; and does not offer enough vegetables and fruits.

Vegetables: 7-13 servings daily

Fruits: 2-4 servings daily Aim for at least 10 servings combined. (A serving is: 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables).

An interesting Comparison, see below ..
