Transcript new diet. "What's important is to change the average American outlook of accepting loss of teeth, the onset of angina, and even cancer as the natural aging process." Here are six basic objectives in Long's "good nutrition" program from her book A Basic Diet Plan and Use of Food Supplements: • Eat six small meals a day. If we eat small amounts often, we'll have enough enzymes and carriers to digest and assimilate our food. • Drink water 30 minutes before meals. If we drink liquids with meals (tea, coffee, cola, cocoa, bottled or canned drinks), we will dilute the hydrochloric acid so much that it will not digest and assimilate the nutrients. • Eat cooked and raw vegetables, but eat fruits whole, raw and ripe. • Vary diet as much as possible. Every good, natural food adds something we need, but no one food gives us everything we need. • Don't eat white sugar or white flour. These are the worst empty-calorie foods. They deprive the body of B vitamins because it takes more B's to assimilate these junk foods and they don't contain enough of the vitamins and minerals needed for their own digestion. • Don't eat convenience food. This means no canned, frozen, packaged, bagged, or "instant" foods. "This diet is different, not difficult. It's really easier and cheaper than any other. We eat more raw foods; we don't buy expensive convenience foods; we eat natural foods," Long states. Besides the home study course, the Nutritional Education Association, which' operates out of Long's home, coordinates nutritional activities in Houston and sponsors a conference each spring, bringing in top nutritionists from around the country. Between doing personal consul tations and presiding over the activities of the association, Long does a lot of public speaking. She says there are always three questions that she addresses at any talk: If nutrition is as wonderful as you say it is, why don't doctors know about it and tell us? "I wrote to the American Medical Association, and discovered that doctors are not required to study nutrition and therefore rarely use it in their practice." How does heredity tie into nutrition and health? "We don't inherit our poor health from our parents and grandparents. We may have bad genes that say 'cancer,' or 'heart disease,' but if we eat good food, the diseases don't appear. If our parents and grandparents had eaten well enough, they wouldn't have had the diseases that are in their genes. Eating correctly can prevent the expression of the disease in our genes, and it can help correct the damage that has already been done." What part does stress play? "Stress is pleasant as well as unpleasant. It is anything that taxes the body. If we're under stress and we eat correctly for it, we do not get damaged from stress. Stress can only take its toll when nutrition is very poor, and then it can be very damaging." Long believes in moderation for everything and in designing a diet that is perfect for the individual—taking life style, age, sex and current health problems into account. Her new cookbook, Switchover to the New Nutrition, provides menu planning and recipes that include among many: yogurt, bread, muffins, vegetables and rice, tofu, and even some healthful desserts. "I try to discourage people from the notion that preparing these kinds of foods is too time-consuming. There are lots of quick tricks to prepare food fast." For example, to make a banana smoothie: "Peel and slice a ripe banana onto a tray and freeze. Use about six or eight slices of banana per smoothie. Add 1/2 to 1 cup of milk to the banana in a blender, and blend until smooth." Adele Davis says, "There should be two standards for selecting any food: it should taste delicious; it should help build health." Ruth Yale Long's "Turkey Alternative" (in her cookbook) meets both criteria. "This recipe was given to me by one of my nutrition students. She prepared it for Thanksgiving Dinner," says Long. Dinner in a Pumpkin Use one or more small to medium size pumpkins. Wash, cut out top, making an opening large enough to scrape out the inside fibers. Stuff with layers of the following grains and vegetables: brown rice buckwheat millet steamed carrots onions zucchini celery Season with: grated ginger root thyme summer savory dash of nutmeg coriander When full, sprinkle a little tamari over all and replace the lid. Coat outside with unrefined oil, bake at 350 degrees F for one hour or until a fork pricks easily. Roast on serving platter or it may fall apart. To serve, scoop from inside. Garnish with parsley or baked apples. Bon appetit! Ruth Yale Long, PhD, is founder and first president of the Nutrition Education Association, Inc.
