Chris Lelik

Chris Lelik is a Warrior Chef, doing a gig at a past Burning Man event he had to pull off the impossible. Other chefs decided to use his food and he had to come up with a plan to feed 300 hungry festival goers. He found the food he needed somehow, and also got the people to help him, people that had no idea about food or cooking it.

I worked with Chris at Down to Earth in Lahaina and back then our crew was the best, we had a mix of different talent, people who were creative in the kitchen and we made the best vegetarian on the island. Chris Lelik made some of the killerist vegan pizzas ever, some day he should have his own vegetarian dig.

KAYUMANGGI

Yours truly hopefully will be writing the column for food for Kayumanggi, a local Filippino news paper, I may have to change the file photo. Need to use some gel on the thinning hair or something. But it was cool to have a column in a local paper, thanks to Mr. Ed Gazman who gave me the green light to do it. So if you live on Maui, the newspaper is called Kayumanggi, a Tagalog word meaning brown.

Health Food News

Trying to educate people on eating healthy and what is going on in the food business, well... it's a hard gig, I am not an expert, and don't have the time to delve into any person's health issues, but if you are serious on educating yourself on cooking and eating healthy, there is more to it than buy your food and cooking it, or not cooking it (raw foods are in).

Politics are involved in farming, there are chemicals that I would not touch that are being used to grow crops, educating yourself on eating right is much deeper than going to the market, you have to be aware of what is going on in the world with food. Also having the thoughts that there are people who can't eat period because their resources are dried up, where there is zero water to be drilled out of wells, or food contamination has hit live stocks.

But eating right- takes me deeper into the world around me, so educate yourself, and go to this link to get some news.  http://www.healthfoodnews.com/

PLANT BASED DIETS

As most of us get a little older, studies have shown that the more saturated fats we do consume is the cause for many illnesses. Of course too much of anything can be bad. Beef, Pork, even poultry can have ill effects on people, balancing out your diets with more whole foods, natural and organic can stave off illness. What we put into our mouths can either heal and prevent illness or cause us pain.

For instance, I do have gout if I eat, CRUSTACEANS, FATTY MEATS, AND CERTAIN CONDIMENTS, but if I stay away from those things, then guess what? I won't have gout. Also hypertension runs in our family, but after studying causes of illnesses, it really isn't a gene issue, it's a real diet issue. If I consume salt or sodium cholride like it's going out of style, I'm in for trouble.

Here's a tip, eat at least 80 percent plant, or whole foods, 10 percent of protein that comes from beans and soy, and 10 percent from beef, or poultry. Start this type of diet and you'll feel better, especially if you hit the big 40. Excersise is important, spiritual and mental health maintenance is vital for true overall health.

There is nothing wrong with finding religion, something for you to ease your soul, to rest your worries and be at peace. Eating right, and taking care of your body is very important.

Here are some combinations for you to mess around with.

For dinner: 4 oz. of beef or chicken (broiled). 6-8oz. of vegetables like kale, onions, tomatoes, avacados, with dressing made simply by infusing some olive oil, garlic, scallions, and balsamic vinegar. Drink more water and no sodas. If you want, fill glasses with ice and filtered water with squeezes of lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, even ripe mangoes.

For dessert, eat more fresh fruits, apples, plums, pears, bananas, lychees when in season, do away with that fatty ice cream, set those aside for that occasion when you can enjoy it and treat yourself. Maintain your weight, have it in proportion with your height.
