Recept: aardappel-preisoep



400 gram aardappels, in dobbelsteentjes
1 dikke prei, in ringetjes, het groene en het witte deel apart houden
1 ui, gesnipperd
2 teentjes knoflook
herbs de provence
½ liter water
1 bouillonblokje


Giet de olijfolie in de pan en voeg meteen de ui en het witte deel van de prei (in ringetjes) toe. Het vuur moet op z’n laagste stand staan zodat de groenten zachtjes smoren. De aardappels, de knoflook en de kruiden toevoegen. Een paar minuten bakken, maar opletten dat het niet aanbrandt.

Water en bouillonblokje toevoegen en aan de kook laten komen. Ongeveer 15 à 20 minuten laten koken.

Met de staafmixer tot een romige soep mixen.
De groene preiringetjes erbij doen en nog een paar minuten koken.


Op het bord kan naar smaak in blokjes gesneden en knapperig gebakken (rook)-tofu en/of een scheutje (soja)-room toegevoegd worden.

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

categorieën: films, Gezondheid algemeen, Over gewicht

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.

With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it's at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.

What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection.
Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
