Is Acid Wreaking Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

There’s a threat to the health of your teeth that you may not recognize.

It’s called acidity.

Our saliva is naturally alkaline and prevents enamel erosion by supplying minerals to the teeth in between meals.

However, when the saliva becomes more acidic, more bacteria thrive and produce more acids, which eats away at our enamel.

But another more common threat is the onslaught of acid from the foods we eat.

A little acidity is good — our bodies can deal with it and restore alkaline balance after a meal. But when our enamel is already weak, and we start feeling the effects (sensitive teeth, cavities, etc.), we must give our teeth a break from all this acid!

Another problem is that we expose our teeth to acids more than ever before.

We drink healthy juices, or smoothies, which are often made with acidic fruits like apples, lemons or citrus.
We drink apple cider vinegar, hibiscus tea or lemon water.
We squeeze lime juice all over our food or use balsamic vinegar in an attempt to use less salt or improve flavor.
We drink wine, coffee, and other highly acidic beverages.
Acid is everywhere!

If you’ve been experiencing problems with your teeth, it may be time to give yourself a break from this acid onslaught.

It may be a chance to go on an acid-free diet! Not forever, but to give your teeth enough time to build back some enamel and get strong again.

Here are some foods to avoid during this “acid-free diet.”

Balsamic and all vinegar
Lemon, lime juice
Citrus
Many other fruits: berries, apples, mangoes, grapes, etc.
Coffee, wine
Pickles and fermented vegetables
Tomatoes and tomato products
Soda
I’m not saying that all of the acid-containing foods I just mentioned are unhealthy. Many are super healthy! But, when you want to rebuild your enamel, it’s essential to minimize or avoid these foods for a while.

Instead, you can eat all of the non-acidic foods, such as:

Nonacidic fruits: melons, papayas, bananas, dates, persimmons, etc.
Most vegetables (But beware: many become acidic when roasted).
Most foods you can think of that don’t taste acidic (whole grains, beans, avocados, etc.)
Acid Vs. Acid-Forming

It’s important to understand that a food item can be acidic (contain acids) but be alkaline-forming after digestion, while other food items can be alkaline or neutral, but become acidic after digestion. This is due to the mineral balance in the food and the presence of acid-forming amino acids. That is why most acidic fruits are alkaline-forming while most animal products are acid forming. Grains are slightly acid forming.

Of course, we’re talking about the contact of acid with your teeth, which is different. Ideally, you would want to eat a predominantly alkaline-forming diet that’s also low in acids.

The Acid-Free Diet Is Not Enough

The acid-free diet will help give your teeth a break and enable the rebuilding of enamel. However, you also need to ensure that you’re doing everything you can to turn actively around your dental health for the better.

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less acid alone does not guarantee you’ll become cavity-proof.

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

Check out below some great deals on Frederic’s health products.
These offers/prices can change at any time, so do not delay!

How to “Survive” Air Travel by Frederic Patenaude

I travel maybe once a month on average by plane, so over the years I’ve come up with a few ways to stay healthier doing something that is often a source of stress for most people.

A few of my tips have nothing to do with food. When you travel, your primary concern is to avoid or reduce stress. Stress will take a huge toll on the body and add to the fatigue of traveling. If you’re crossing time-zones, you’re putting your body under even more stress.

So my goal when traveling by plane is to lower stress as much as possible. Every tip I will give you has something to do with that goal. If you make flying a pleasant experience, your digestion and overall health will improve.

1) Get a 9 a.m. flight if you can

This is a tip that I picked up years ago from an airline employee. During weekdays, 9 a.m. is the best time to fly. Why? All the rush hour is over. Business travel must arrive at their destination BY 9 or 10 a.m, so they take the 6 and 7 a.m. flights. By 9 a.m., the airport is empty. Any flight between 9 and 11 a.m will be during a time where the airport is practically empty. You will breeze through security and get to relax at the lounge much sooner!

2) Bring Snacks

I always bring healthy snacks with me on the plane and to the airport. Most people don’t realize they can bring fresh fruit and produce as long as they are “prepared,” even when fruit is otherwise forbidden. For example, you can’t leave Hawaii with a fresh pineapple, but you can cut up the pineapple in a fruit salad and bring that in a container.

Fresh fruit is king for flying. It’s truly the best food you can eat, along with water-rich vegetables like bell peppers, celery, and cucumbers (and yes, I realize that two of those vegetables are technically fruits, but give me a break! We do eat them like vegetables).

You don’t want to bring too much and then be burdened by excess weight. I typically bring the following:

Ginger chews (to avoid motion sickness). Available in health food stores.
A big bowl of fruit salad, with plastic utensils and napkins (don’t forget that part!)
2-3 healthy snack bars
A small bag of nuts or dried fruit, or both

3) Drink water

On the plane, drink plenty of water. However, don’t go crazy and drink so much that you have to constantly go to the bathroom. If you’re taking a night flight and you’re trying to get some rest, that can impair your ability to sleep.

There’s no set formula for how much you should drink, although some people suggest certain amounts by hours of flying. Essentially, you want to prevent dehydration. As long as your urine remains relatively clear and abundant, you’re doing a good job. If it gets very yellow, you’re becoming dehydrated.

4) Considering eating only fruit

If you have a flight that’s only a few hours long, consider eating only fruit during your entire travel time. Personally, my digestion always gets messed up when I travel by plane. It’s probably because of stress related to my fear of flying. But fruit is the one food I can handle no matter what. Fruit is also water-rich, which helps keep you hydrated. You can also consume celery, and other cut up water-rich vegetables (but not a big salad with avocados, nuts, and dressing!).

If you’re flying longer, you may get hungry and need to eat something more than fruit. In this case, stick with foods that are easy to digest. Personally, I can’t handle a big salad when I travel by plane. But nuts and seeds work well. And I only eat airplane food when I’m sitting in business class (see more tips about business class below).

5) Drink green tea

If you need a “pick me up” while flying, drink green tea instead of other caffeinated beverages. Green tea is full of antioxidants that will help your health while flying. Bring your own tea bags and ask for hot water. If you’re in business class, they can make green tea for you.

6) Use Light Therapy

I use a website called “Jet Lag Rooster” to create a plan to follow before or after arriving at my destination.

The plan essentially involves resetting the circadian cycles by exposing yourself to light. The website explains everything, and they also have an iPhone app.

You will need a few pieces of gear if you want this to work:
An inexpensive travel lightbox
Dark sunglasses or shades
A night mask
This program really works. I’ve used it a few times and then traveled again without it, and it was night and day! It’s sometimes not easy to follow because you have to wake up very early at inconvenient times to expose yourself to light, but if you can, try to do the program as explained on the website. It will save you from huge amounts of stress and unpleasantness on your next international or cross-country trip.

7) Fly in business class

There’s a reason why business travelers fly in business or first class when flying internationally. It’s simply a more restful experience! You can sleep on a fully reclined seat or “bed” and be treated to a royal experience.

However, business class seats are not cheap, especially internationally.

I personally always fly business class when going international, but I never pay for it. I use the system I teach in the course “How to Travel the World for Free.”

Conclusion

Finally, the trick to remaining healthy while traveling by plane is lowering stress. Sure, you can boost your immune system marginally by consuming supplements and superfoods, but none of those things will have as much of a powerful effect on your health as lowering stress will.

Whatever you do, try to make flying a pleasant experience, and enjoy your trip!

How to Raise B12 Levels Quickly by Frederic Patenaude

How to Raise B12 Levels Quickly by Frederic Patenaude

A reader recently asked us, “Why is B12 supplementation required to thrive on a vegan diet? Is it a biologically appropriate diet?”

What the reader is asking is that if a plant-based diet is so healthy, why are there some supplements that are needed to make this diet complete?

There’s a lot of confusion in the raw food and vegan world about vitamin B12.

The vast majority of experts on the plant based diet who recommend supplements.

The reality is that eating a healthy diet has nothing to do with what’s “natural” for human beings.

Our environment is so sanitized that the bacteria that normally produce B12 are often not present. B12 is also a very sensitive vitamin and sometimes it can be found in the right quantities, but can’t be absorbed by the body because of a lack of what is called the “intrinsic factor.”

Vitamin B12 is the “energy vitamin” so it’s important to maintain the right levels of B12 to keep your energy constant enough to get you through the day without irritability or unusual fatigue.

So let’s be clear that anyone following a vegan, vegetarian or raw food diet should absolutely be supplementing with vitamin B12. But, since 40% of the population is testing low in B12, it would be wise for everyone to consider supplementing.

How to Supplement

So you have to supplement, but you have to find the right way to do it.

Most supplements, including sub-lingual tablets, are not absorbed completely by the body. The supplements contain a form of B12 that has to be converted by the body into the form that is truly usable.

As little as 0.1% of the B12 in a supplement ends up being assimilated in most cases.

So, what’s the solution?

B12 shots are the best way to get truly absorbable B12 when you are deficient and need to raise your levels quickly. But a shot can cost you close to $250 in North America (with a doctor’s consultation), and well… who likes needles? Not mentioning the fact that the liquids injected contain ingredients that you probably don’t want in your system.

Why I Use B12 Patches

I finally found a good solution to this problem, when I was attempting to raise my own B12 levels.

I was in Costa Rica, doing a juice fast, and there I met a lady who was using B12 patches. She managed to raise her own B12 levels quickly using a small patch that you put behind the ear once or twice a week.

I did some research and found out that the patches are probably the best alternative to shots and tablets.

They contain the most absorbable type of B12 — methylcobalamin — which is easily absorbed through the skin in 24 hours.

Other vitamins on the market contain cyanocobalamin, which is a cheaper source of B12 that needs to be converted by the body.

When you need to raise your B12 level you can use the patches. If you’re deficient, you can use the patches twice a week, and then as needed.

B12 overdoses are pretty much unknown and the patches provide just the right quantity that the body needs.

But beware, not all B12 patches are equally effective. We’ve tested a few brands until we found the one that worked best.

B12 the Energy Vitamin

If you feel constantly tired in spite of getting good sleep, you may want to look at raising your vitamin B12 levels.

B12’s role in energy production is well known, and insufficient B12 levels can lead to fatigue and mood changes.

The Importance of Caloric Density by Frederic Patenaude

The Importance of Caloric Density by Frederic Patenaude

Caloric density is one of the most important concepts in health and weight loss.

It’s simply a value of how many calories are in a certain weight of food, either by pound or kilo.

If you eat foods with a low caloric density, you get full much faster because you have more volume to deal with, and more fiber to keep you full.

If you eat foods of high-caloric density, you tend to find it easier to consume more calories, and for some people this causes some issues for their waistline.

Study after study has shown that caloric density is the most important factor in making a diet work long-term.

Why?

Because if you eat foods of low caloric density, you get full much faster, and it’s incredibly difficult to overeat and gain unwanted weight.

For example, lettuce has a caloric density of only 100 calories per pound, while olive oil has 4000 calories per pound.

Now you’ll say… yeah, but nobody just eats olive oil!

Of course. But whenever you add olive oil to a food, you increase the overall caloric density significantly.

One famous study showed that when they fed a group of people the same food but without the added fat, people ate the same amount of food, but consumed fewer calories, and lost weight. But, the other group being fed the same food but with extra oil sneaked in gained weight. They were taking in extra calories without realizing it!

At the same time, if you add lettuce to any meal, you lower the caloric density.

That’s why they’ve found that when people had a large fat free salad or a big apple before their meal, they ate less at the meal and were able to lose weight.

All because of applying the concepts of caloric density.

It’s important to note that nobody can live on just vegetables, and that you’d get so hungry on a diet of just vegetables that you’d eventually break down and eat something else!

However, you do want your diet to contain plenty of raw vegetables, by weight.

The concept of caloric density applied to your overall system of eating is to look at the overall caloric density of your meals.

Does Eating Fruit Cause Cavities? by Frederic Patenaude

Does Eating Fruit Cause Cavities? by Frederic Patenaude

I’ve been warning raw vegans, raw food enthusiasts, smoothie drinkers, fruit eaters, and vegans to take care of their teeth — for a few years now.

What I have observed is:

A high incidence of dental decay among those eating a high-raw diet, 1-2 years after they switch to the diet.

A high incidence of gum recession and enamel erosion among raw vegans. (This does not mean eating 100% raw — anyone who eats a lot of fruit or drinks fresh juices or smoothies should care.)
Dramatic dental problems in people who stick religiously to certain diet principles without questioning them.

I’ve had my share of dental problems myself as a direct result of following the raw diet incorrectly (and I’m not even talking about eating a lot of dates here). I have also met at least several hundred people who have gone through similar issues.

I’ve been talking about this for some years now, and I’m glad that people are finally listening!

So what’s going on here?

The Two Culprits

At this point, if you have the least interest in eating a healthier diet, you should start reading very carefully.

Eating fruit does not, per se, causes decay.

Tooth decay is the result of the proliferation of certain types of bacteria in the oral environment. The bacteria eliminate acid waste that eats into your teeth and causes decay.

It’s all about the terrain!

What happens is that when people change their diet, they are a time-bomb as far as their dental health is concerned. Their bacteria count is a little too high, but not high enough to cause significant problems.

Suddenly, they start eating more often, because they eat foods that are not as dense in calories. They drink juices. They drink smoothies. They eat a lot of fruit.
This acid and sugar create a giant feast for the bacteria which feed on them.

It’s not all about the food you eat! If you can control the level of acidity in your mouth, you can eat foods that contain acids and sugar, and you’ll be okay.

But, if your oral terrain is not under control, you’ll never be able to eradicate dental problems for life.

The Only Solution

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just eating less sugar does not address the root of the problem (although there are important nutritional steps you can take to make your teeth cavity-proof).

If you’d like to find out the exact method that I use to reverse and prevent dental problems, make sure to get the new edition of our program “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

In it, you will discover:

What you can do for your teeth if you already have decay above or below the gumline, pain, bleeding or loose teeth…

Why the dental industry on purpose wants you to come back for more visits with new problems to “fix” every time.

What to do if you lose a filling, chip or lose a tooth, etc.

The B12 Controversy Explained by Frederic Patenaude

B12 is a tricky topic.

On the one hand, people attacking a plant-based diet use it as an argument for why eating vegan is “unnatural.”

If this diet were so natural, then why the need for a vitamin that is only found in animal products?

Fair question.

In reality, B12 is neither made by plants or animals. It’s made by bacteria.

In ancestral times, we got plenty of B12 because our environment wasn’t so sanitized. And yes, that included residues of feces that found their way into our food. Yikes! Yes, but that’s how many vegetarian-eating apes get their B12. They even get B12 from spring water.

Nowadays, we live in a more sanitized environment, and that has led to significant benefits: we don’t die of bacterial infections like we used to, or like wild monkeys do.

There are some downsides, and one of them is that anyone following a largely vegan diet has to supplement with B12.

Another interesting fact:

Many people have quoted studies that vegetarians do NOT live longer than the general populations. Those studies happen to be done on British vegetarians and vegans.

On the other hands, studies that were done in America (with the 7th Day Adventists, who happen to recommend a vegetarian diet with different degrees of compliance) show that vegetarians and vegans do indeed live longer. In fact, American Adventist (vegetarian) men live on average ten years longer than American men! That is a striking difference.

So why did the British vegetarians do badly in all the studies?

It could be because of B12.

I recently attended a talk by Dr. Michael Greger, author of the new book How Not to Die, and he talked about this very issue. By law, many organic products in Britain can’t have supplemental B12. In the USA, we find added B12 in soy milk, breakfast cereals, etc. Because most British vegetarians don’t supplement, they become deficient. In fact, 75% of them are severely deficient.

The same thing happens to raw vegan, and I’ve known many examples.

It’s also easy for raw vegans to become B12 deficient because they consume only natural foods and don’t drink supplemented soy milk or eat breakfast cereal. If they don’t take a supplement, their exposure to B12 can be nil.

B12 deficiency raises homocysteine levels, which can lead to heart disease and other symptoms.

Gabriel Cousens, MD. writes:

There are at least fifteen vegan studies on adults that have shown identical results. Cooked food and live food vegans show the same results. Approximately 80% of those who do not use B12 supplements or B12 fortified foods sooner or later develop symptoms of B12 deficiency. These may include physical symptoms such as the inability to walk, tremors, weakness, fatigue, diarrhea, fever, upper respiratory infections, impotence, infertility, anemia as well as neurological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, hyperactive reflexes, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, impaired memory, and paranoid delusions. Consistent research over the last decade has shown that vegans and live food people of all ages and sexes have a much higher risk of becoming B-12 deficient.

A published report cites a man in his eighties who had been in excellent health as a vegan for 38 years, when suddenly he began to suffer from mental disturbances, developed confusion, and sadness, lost bowel control, and lost motor control skill to the point where he could marginally stand up. After one shot of B12 his physical and mental health began to return rapidly and by one week many of his symptoms had disappeared.


So there you have it. Make sure to supplement with B12.

It’s not about what’s “natural” or “unnatural.” It’s about being smart and understanding in what kind of environment we live.

Keep in mind that people who promote high-meat diets are also the ones pushing the most supplements. They even have the audacity to push protein powder, on an already high-protein diet!

On a healthy plant based diet, your intake of most essential nutrients will be through the roof. And the nutrients you want to minimize will be naturally low. You’ll get plant-based iron, instead of the carcinogenic heme-based iron (found in animal blood).

All good stuff… as long as you supplement with B12.

So what’s the best option? There are some decent supplements available on the market.

B12 shots work best to raise levels quickly. That’s why I switched to B12 patches. They work very well to increase B12 levels quickly without the cost and pain of shots.

Initially, I used the B12 patches weekly to raise my levels, and now I only need to use them once a month to stay at a healthy level.

Why No Oil? by Frederic Patenaude

Why No Oil? by Frederic Patenaude

One of the most common questions that I get is: why don’t you recommend oil?
What about coconut oil? Or extra-virgin olive oil? Or flax seed oil?

Why I Don’t Recommend Any Oil, Including Olive or Coconut Oil

I follow the lead of excellent doctors and researchers such as Dr. Esselstyn, McDougall, Barnard, Campbell, Klaper, Goldhammer (and many others) in my stance against oil.

I don’t use any oil, including olive or coconut — and never eat any except in circumstances where I’m not in full control of the food that I’m eating.

Once you’ve experienced going oil-free, you don’t want to go back. The benefits of eliminating oil from the diet are numerous, and you will feel many of them immediately.

You’ll have more energy. Oil is 100% pure fat with no protein or carbohydrate, and very few other nutrients. Fat is twice as concentrated in calories as carbohydrates, containing nine calories per gram vs. four for carbohydrates. You’ll have more energy eliminating oil because you eliminate a concentrated source of calories. You will replace those calories with foods that give more energy, such as fruit, healthy starches, vegetables, and whole nuts and seeds or avocados.

Your mood will improve. Again, consuming liquid fat means consuming fewer carbohydrates and healthy sources of protein. Whole carbohydrates contribute positively to serotonin production.

Your digestion will improve. Oil makes digestion sluggish. Liquid fat takes a lot more time to digest than carbohydrates. On an oil-free diet, your digestion will be excellent! You will never feel too full or experience discomfort after a meal, even if it is big.

You’ll lose body fat. You might think that eating so many carbohydrates makes you fat. But in reality, it’s the combination of carbohydrates and fat that promotes fat gain. Carbohydrates are burned as energy whereas fat can be stored directly as body fat. If one consumes both carbohydrates and fat in significant quantities, the carbohydrates will be used as energy and the fats will be stored as body fat (as long as total calories exceed what the body needs). Liquid fat (oil) are the easiest types of calories for the body to store as body fat.

Your blood sugar will improve. I used to check my blood sugar every day. Eating fat and especially meat has always caused the greatest spike in blood sugar. That’s because a high-fat diet lowers insulin sensitivity. In fact, beef causes more insulin production than white sugar.

Why No Oil?

Here are some more reasons to avoid oil:

1) Oil is a refined product and the most concentrated source of calories available anywhere. One tablespoon of oil contains 120 calories of pure fat with almost no other nutrients. Refined sugar is only 50 calories per tablespoon.

A few splashes of olive oil here and there can quickly add up to hundreds of extra calories that you don’t need. Worst of all, those calories are missing all the fiber and essential nutrients and are empty.

Multiple studies have found that adding fat to food makes people over-consume calories without realizing it because fat has a very low satiety factor compared to carbohydrates or proteins. Many of these fascinating findings are described in the book “Salt, Sugar, Fat.”

Remember: it takes 24 olives to make 1 TBS of olive oil. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never once added 24 olives to a single serving of salad.

2) Vegetable oils contribute to inflammation. Omega 6 fats contribute to inflammation in the body while omega-3 fats reduce it. But most vegetable oils have a ratio that dramatically favor omega-6 fats. We should seek to a dietary ratio of no more than four times the omega 6s vs. 3. Olive oil contains over ten times the omega-6 as omega-3, and many other oils are worst.

3) Olive oil doesn’t lower LDL cholesterol, in fact, it increases it. It’s a myth to think that olive oil is “heart healthy.” Studies have only shown that it lowers LDL cholesterol when it replaces animal fats like butter. But to add olive oil (and other vegetable oils) to an otherwise healthy diet increases LDL levels. If you want to raise your LDL levels even faster, then eat some coconut oil. As Dr. Williams recently pointed out in an article published on Renegade Health, vegans tend to eat too much coconut oil, and it does raise their LDL levels. There’s a lot of hype around coconut oil, but in my opinion it’s just another good way to get to a heart attack faster. (For the lowdown on coconut oil, watch this video by Dr. Greger.) Note: whole coconuts are healthy. You can eat them.

4) Olive oil injures the inner lining of the arteries (called endothelium). A study conducted by Dr. Robert Vogel and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology showed that a meal containing olive oil caused severe constrictions in arteries, contributing to heart disease. Consuming olive oil reduced blood flow by 31% in this study. It’s worth noting that canola oil or salmon didn’t cause this problem (however, all vegetable oils are unhealthy to some degree).

What studies found was that the protective components of the Mediterranean diet appear to be fruits and vegetables and nuts, and NOT the olive oil. Greek people only got away with eating olive oil because they consumed a lot of fruits and vegetables. They also replaced animal fats like butter with olive oil. But olive oil in itself isn’t healthy. (Note: Greece currently has the highest obesity levels in Europe and has the highest per-capita consumption of olive oil).

5) Oils release toxic compounds when heated. Many oils become carcinogenic when heated. And yes, every type of oil can withstand a different level of heat. But don’t believe for a second that nothing is happening to your oil when you start heating it. Udo Erasmus, one of the world’s most well-known experts on fats, always recommended to never heat any fat. He said: “If health is what we want, water is the only oil appropriate for frying. We’re back to steaming, poaching, boiling, or pressure cooking our foods. Or, even better in most cases, eating them raw.”

What about essential fats?

It’s true, we need some fats for good health. But all whole foods contain them to a certain degree, and in the perfect omega 3/6 ratio.

What’s my favorite source of essential fats? Green vegetables. Although the percentage is low, it contains omega 3s in the perfect ratio.

Additional fats should come from whole foods such as nuts, seeds, avocados, etc. Those foods contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, protein, and so many other critical nutrients that are missing from liquid fat calories.

I only take two tablespoons of ground flax seeds every day. I have tested my Omega-3 levels using a blood test, and I’m getting optimal results. My theory is that removing oil in the diet improves the omega-3 ratio because there’s no omega-6 to compete with the omega 3s. The body can fully convert the small amount of fatty acids naturally found in every whole food, including vegetables. Including flax seeds and walnuts or hemp is a good idea.

How to Transition to an Oil-Free Diet

Now, does that mean you can never have a splash of olive oil? If you’re very active and burn a lot of calories, a bit of olive oil probably won’t hurt you. But it’s better to go without it. Try giving it up and you’ll notice that your taste for oil will disappear. If you crave something fatty, have whole nuts and seeds instead, or even some nut butter. Eat some avocado. And whole coconuts contain ALL of the benefits of the coconut. Coconut oil is just pure fat. What could be tastier than a fresh, young coconut?

When I make a batch of hummus, I only use some tahini, but I don’t add any oil. The traditional recipe for hummus doesn’t contain any oil. I stopped purchasing the tahini brands that contain oil (most of them).

When I eat a salad, I usually eat it plain or with a simple seasoning of balsamic vinegar and maybe nutritional yeast. But I don’t add olive oil to it. I might add some diced avocado.

When I make rice and beans, or marinara sauce, I don’t stir-fry the onion and garlic in olive oil. I dry-sautee the onions and garlic until a little brown and then deglaze it with vegetable broth. No oil.

My taste buds have adapted to this oil-free diet. I now enjoy my food more without oil. It takes about 60-90 days for a person used to a diet of 30+% fat to adjust to lower-fat diet. Then when the transition is over, you will start to dislike oil and enjoy the taste of real, unrefined foods without added liquid fat.
