Dear Bryanna,

Sorry I could not write to you earlier. I had been chasing a deadline.

Thank you for your such a detailed response. It was really helpful. I guess it is ok to use Earth Balance on a limited basis. This seems like the best option we have right now. I mostly cook in Olive Oil but use Earth Bal. sometimes for cold spreads. especially when you need that special buttery umami flavor. Occasionally we use good quality coconut oil like Nutiva. Our fat intake is limited but we use good fats like avocado, nuts and seeds, and EVOO.

Recently I have tried to avoid processed food as much as possible (including from health food stores). Even we have been using whole grains, and make our own crackers and cookies. White flour is virtually out, it has no nutrition and it drags you down. I experimented with making rotis out of sprouted wheat (we sprout and grind at home). O those are absolutely fabulous. The taste, the flavor and not to talk about the energy that you get from them. Its like a nutritional powerhouse, nothing I have ever eaten compares to the energy boost we get from it. Try it sometimes, you may like it. You can make flat breads out of it and bake it in oven at 400, add a bit of sugar and salt. You may have to use some dry wwflour for kneading and also for dusting it. Sprouting wheat is very simple, soak 8-10 hours, then put it in a bowl, cover it with a dampen cloth and then put it in the oven for two days with the oven light on and don't forget to cover it with a dampen cloth. It is very simple. Just stir couple of times in between, and walla!

I came up with a spread that I really liked... lightly toasted sun flower seeds and toasted nutritional yeast, just a little cold pressed grapeseed oil, garlic powder and salt. It is yum and very nutritious.

Thanks a lot.
