Recept: pastasalade met voorjaarsgroenten

Jonge peul

Ingrediënten voor 2 personen

- 150 gram pasta naar keuze
- 400 gram verse voorjaarsgroenten naar keuze zoals asperges (wit of groen), doperwtjes, peultjes
- 200 gram verse blaadjes als spinazie, zuring, rucola
- olijfolie
- 1 teen knoflook
- 50 gram olijven en/of gedroogde tomaatjes (in olie)
- verse basilicum en bieslook
- zout, peper, gistvlokken naar smaak


Kook de groenten tot ze net gaar zijn. Jonge peultjes en doperwten hoeven niet meer dan een paar minuten.
Was de blaadjes.

Maak een dressing van knoflook, olijfolie, zout, peper, gistvlokken en de kruiden.

Kook de pasta beetgaar en spoel 'm na het koken af met koud water. Doe de pasta in een schaal en schenk er meteen een scheutje olijfolie door. Voeg de gekookte groenten, de olijven, de tomaatjes en de verse baadjes toe.
Goed mengen met de dressing.

De salade minimaal een uur af laten koelen zodat de smaken er goed in kunnen trekken.

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.
