Adventures in Eating: Stuffed Bell Peppers in Beer Sauce
We are on a new food regimen for 1988!
Paul had purchased a book titled “The 120 year Diet”, by Dr. Roy L. Walford M.D.. Overnight he became a disciple of Dr. Walford’s and has finally converted me, too. Dr. Walford declares, that one can have a better quality of life and longevity, through nutritional eating habits.
Dr. Walford is a pathologist at the U.C.L.A. Medical Center. His expertise and research is in aging and the diseases that accompany the aging process, and how through proper nutrition, those diseases can be prevented or even delayed.
He maintains that if you eat the proper mixture of foods, providing the right combination of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients the body requires, your body will work at peak efficiency, using what it needs to produce energy, good health and a long life.
In his book, Dr. Walford prints a 21 day diet, and also gives you the recipes for those meals. I must say they are very creative, interesting, and tasty.
Paul fixed one of the recipes, last week, which I had modified. I thought it was really wonderful.
