WHAT’S COOKING is a monthly e–bulletin from Dr. Fuhrman to keep you informed about the healing power of food, delicious recipes, inspiring success stories, and timely news from our website.

Dr. Fuhrman’s Tip of the Month

Do you feel in control of your health? Educate yourself on the essential, measurable parameters for protection against heart disease. There is more to maintaining a healthy heart beyond the standard (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) medical tests. Be prepared at your next physical exam! Learn more in Dr. Fuhrman's December 2002 Healthy Times Newsletter.

Food for Thought
Pomegranate juice is a rich source of phytochemicals and antioxidants that has been shown to protect against heart disease and cancer. Pomegranate juice not only lowers cholesterol, it also lowers blood pressure and increases the speed at which heart blockages (atherosclerosis) melt away. A glass of pomegranate juice is a powerhouse of antioxidants, containing more than red wine, green tea, blueberries or cranberries!

While pomegranate juice is available year round, the fruit itself is seasonally available October to January. Luckily, pomegranates have a long shelf life (similar to apples) and keep well in the refrigerator.

Click here to be brought to our online Library for more details about the powerful health benefits of eating pomegranates, including instructions for seeding the fruit and a delicious smoothie recipe.

Learn additional ways to protect yourself against heart disease by reading Dr. Fuhrman's book Cholesterol Protection for Life. Check out our special offer in the “What’s Cooking at Dr. Fuhrman’s” section of the e–bulletin!

Success Stories
My father died at age 58 from heart disease. I am 75 years old and looking for natural ways to maintain healthy cholesterol readings without taking medication. For 6 months, I have been taking Dr. Fuhrman's LDL PROTECT and DHA Purity and drinking 1 ounce of pomegranate juice daily. I am happy to report my total cholesterol numbers dropped from 232 to 184. My whole lipid profile has improved! I intend to continue using your products and recommend them to anyone looking for great results without side effects. Thanks for terrific products!

Recipe of the Month

These summer months gives many of us the opportunity to visit local farmers markets and produce stands for fresh, just-picked produce. Bring the kids along to engage their help in your selections and to prove that food isn't always packaged in cellophane!

This month's "Colorful Creations" menu offers a refreshing blend of summer's bounty. Adding carrots to the Watermelon Surprise Smoothie provides an extra nutritional boost and natural sweetness. The Strawbeany Ice Cream successfully combines unique ingredients to make this non dairy ice cream recipe delicious and satisfying. Let us know if you divulge the surprise ingredient in this recipe - pinto beans!

Enjoy your summer as you Eat to Live!
