Filed under: Health News — Tags: , , — admin @ 6:00 PM

The prevalence of adult American cigarette smokers, which dropped below 20% in 2007, leveled off in 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says in a new report.

CHOP SUEY WITH TOFU

1 cup celery (slice diagonally)
1 cup red onions, chop

1 cup green pepper, chop
1 cup carrots (slice diagonally)
1 cup fresh or can mushrooms
1 small can water chestnuts, slice
1 cup firm tofu, cube
1 small can bamboo shoots
¼ cup Bragg Organic Olive Oil
2 Tbsps Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 cloves garlic, chop
1 cup Mung bean sprouts
½ tsp Chinese Five Spice *

Place olive oil, Liquid Aminos and Chinese Five Spice in skillet or wok over low heat until the oil is hot. Add all ingredients, except the tofu and mung bean sprouts. Use a wooden spoon to continuously sauté the vegetables (over medium heat to retain valuable vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients). Once the mixture is thoroughly heated (about 10 minutes), gently place tofu in the skillet and mix with vegetables, being careful not to break up the little squares of tofu. After the tofu and vegetables are thoroughly warmed add a cup of fresh or canned mung bean sprouts. Serve with cooked brown rice. To enhance the protein content of this meal, add to each serving a heaping tablespoon of sliced almonds (pre-roast in oven).

Serves 6.

* Note: This popular Five Spice item is in the seasoning isle of most food markets. Choose a brand that contains no MSG or added salt! The Chinese believe that it is important to incorporate the principal of Yin and the Yang into their meals, thus the heat of a dish should be counter-balanced by an equally cooling ingredient. When you try this seasoning you will be surprised at how beautifully the flavors – sweet, warm, cool and spicy – blend. This is an extremely versatile mixture suited to rice, vegetables and any type of stir fry. – www.SpiceHouse.com
