Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses an intense beam of light to cut, burn, or destroy tissue. The term LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Medical lasers are used in many areas of medical treatment. The earliest medical lasers were applied in ophthalmology and dermatology. A medical laser is a non-invasive and intensive light source to treat tissue and provides fast healing and without scarring and discoloration.

The escalating need for medical lasers for the treatment of several diseases and intensifying need for non-invasive treatments are some of the factors propelling the medical laser market growth. The increasing demand for the aesthetic laser procedures in the developing countries is anticipated to boost the medical laser market share.

Rising Demand for Minimally Invasive Procedures, are some of the Factors Driving the Growth of the Global Medical Lasers Market

The rising demand and adoption of minimally invasive procedures, an increase in the number of cosmetic procedures, and increasing incidence of eye disorders are some of the major factors boosting the demand for the laser treatments, subsequently driving the demand for medical lasers. Increasing prevalence of congenital heart diseases, coronary artery diseases, glaucoma, age-related macular edema, and other diseases is another major factor anticipated to drive the medical lasers industry growth.

In October 2018 Lumenis introduced a new laser hair removal system, SPLENDOR X, at the 2018 American Society of Dermatological Surgery (ASDS). SPLENDOR X, the first solid-state laser system equipped with the unique BLEND X technology for fast and effective hair removal and skin solutions.

The introduction of new medical lasers, with procedure-specific applications, and innovative technology integration in these medical laser systems, are some of the major factors projected to drive the market growth during forecast period. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), approximately 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2017, with a 2 percent increase over 2016. The increasing number of cosmetic procedures, combined with market players offering innovative systems are factors propelling the medical laser market sales in 2018.

However, a comparatively higher cost of laser systems is driving the rising preference of healthcare settings towards the purchase of refurbished systems, especially in emerging countries. This has been a major restraining factor for the growth of the global medical lasers market.Market Segmentation

Based on the type, the medical laser market segments include surgical lasers, dental lasers, aesthetic lasers, and others. The aesthetic lasers segment dominated medical laser market share in 2018. The aesthetic laser segment is anticipated to grow at a comparatively high CAGR due to the increased number of minimally invasive cosmetic surgical procedures. The segment accounted for 47.0% share of the market in 2018.

Based on the product, the global market segments include laser systems and consumables. Consumables include probes, laser fibers, accessories for head and neck and others. The increasing number of consumables used per laser system is propelling the consumables segment growth. Around 100-140 consumables are used per year per system. Rising demand for the surgeries will subsequently increase the demand for the consumables leading to significant growth of the consumables segment. Based on end users, the global market segments include hospitals and specialty clinics. The rising number of aesthetic clinics and growing demand for new unit shipments of medical lasers by healthcare facilities in emerging countries, is propelling the medical laser market growth.

Healthy Living With TAU: Back to school 2020 | Healthy Living With Tau – The Suburban Newspaper

September is upon us and that means back to school! Despite the controversies, there is a desire to get back to a somewhat normal life, the need for children to see their friends again, the uncertainty that fuels the concerns of many parents, teachers and even some children and adolescents.

What will the game plan be? This is still uncertain... but in the meantime, there are some strategies that can be implemented to help manage the stress and anxiety generated by this back to school that is, let's face it, very different!

Transitioning with ease

If your child is anxious by nature, becomes more irritable as the beginning of the school year is approaching, develops stomach aches or headaches, has difficulty sleeping... these little tips could make the transition period easier for them and could result in a successful back to school.

1. A week before starting school, resume a bedtime routine and wake them up when they need to get up to go to class (or if applicable, for virtual class times).

2. Set aside time to spend together shopping for new school supplies and, as is often the case, new clothes. Give them the opportunity to make choices.

This preparation step is reassuring and reduces anxiety a notch!

As much as possible, be careful not to feed your child's anxiety with your own. While this is easier said than done, you need to learn to be tolerant of uncertainty and think positively.

Support the nervous system and the immune system

To optimize their physical and intellectual development, children must eat well, sleep well and develop an enthusiasm for physical activity.


For children and adults, when the nervous system is under tension, magnesium is the nutrient to favor. Stress depletes your stores of magnesium, this precious mineral that promotes relaxation.

For children, you have a choice of liquid, powder, or chewable tablet form. Seek advice from a naturopath or health consultants at TAU.

For children with ADHD, many studies report positive results with supplementation of magnesium (200 mg per day) and vitamin B6. Up to 95% of ADHD children are believed to be deficient in magnesium.

If needed, for faster action in the presence of anxiety and nervousness:

For children, L-Theanine, in the form of chewable tablets is very popular. Its action calms the mind without causing drowsiness. It increases alpha waves in the brain and increases the levels of certain calming neurotransmitters, including GABA.

For anxious, easily worried, anguished adults and adolescents, GABA can be taken as a supplement (capsules or chewable tablets). It provides rapid relief from angst, anxiety attacks and acute stress. It increases alpha waves associated with relaxation and reduces beta waves associated with stress and worry.

In the brain, everything is a matter of communication and since it has no reserves, it feeds on what the blood brings to it!

Too much sugar affects the balance of glucose in the blood and therefore ... the brain. It is known that after eating very sweet foods, a child is more excited, sometimes irritable and even aggressive!

For optimal health, provide a healthy and colorful diet daily, rich in antioxidants with fresh organic fruits and vegetables.

With a difficult child who refuses to eat a variety of foods, consider giving them a complete multivitamin and mineral, ideally sweetened with xylitol and/or stevia, with natural fruit flavors and colors.


More than 60% of the brain is made up of lipids, including the precious Omega-3s which are unfortunately often missing from children's diets.

Babies and childrens brains grow into adolescence and have the ability to use DHA omega-3s as a building material. It is therefore suggested to choose an Omega-3 formula more concentrated in DHA fatty acids to support communication in the brain whose billions of neurons are "chatting" with each other 24 hours a day!

To support immunity, consider probiotics:

It is estimated that 80% of the immune system is located on our gut lining and that there is a constant dialogue between the gut microbiota and the rest of the body.

For children 5 years and under, choose a formula adapted to their age with more bifidobacteria. After 5 years old, you can choose a plan that is suitable for the whole family.

The start of the "2020" school year represents a challenge that can be overcome. Hopefully these few tips will help you reduce anxiety and build resilience. Stay optimistic, it's good for your health!

TAU wants to be your partner in turning your health around. At TAU, we are attentive to your needs. TAU will accompany you in your approach and you will discover a variety of products and health food sources. Moreover, in TAU, you can still enjoy the sound advice of our naturopaths and our natural health counselors.

Mike Does A Miley: How Joe Rogan Became The Antithesis Of Veganism – Plant Based News

Mike Tyson has announced he is no longer vegan (Photos: Instagram. Edited by PBN)

Miley Cyrus made headlines this week for announcing she's no longer vegan - claiming her half-a-decade abstinence from animal products had left her brain unable to 'function properly'.

The singer's confession to nonother than carnivore enthusiast Joe Rogan stirred up quite the frenzy online - with social media users blasting the celeb for 'spreading false information' about plant-based diets.

And just as the storm was settling - heavyweight champ Mike Tyson also denounced himself from veganism - as he sat against the same purple-curtained backdrop as Cyrus.

The boxer, who previously said he refused to eat 'anything with a mother', confessed to eating 'wild' meat such as elk and bison before commencing training to re-enter the ring.

He told Rogan that without animal-products, he would be unable to achieve what he 'wanted his body to look like' - before nonchalantly discussing if the hunter could kill a bison for him.

Rogan, who has a propensity to new diet trends and fads, has never shied away from discussing veganism - to the point where vegan ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll said he 'brings up veganism more than I do'.

In fact, Rogan's podcast has pretty much become a battleground for discussing veganism in recent times. He often invites low-carb / keto diet proponents with quack credentials who, at best, are unqualified to make the statements they so confidently do.

Take for example paleo advocate and licensed acupuncturist Chris Kresser - who was welcomed onto The Joe Rogan Experience to 'debunk' The Game Changers documentary and described it as 'vegan propaganda'.

Rogan never deleted the interview with Kresser, even after praising producer James Wilks for defending the film's criticism - adding that he 'knocked it out of the park'.

Discussions around veganism are of course healthy, and even essential to rid some of the myths that even vegans are guilty of propagating, but there's something that seems so frivolous about Rogan and the way he toys with veganism - giving voice to those who will bash out unsupported claims and seldom presenting credible and respected figures to debate.

Rogan's bias is also evident. Last year he was slammed by renowned Cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn for being 'funded by meat companies'- saying that they're his podcast's 'number one sponsor'. Dr. Kahn also added that supporting pro-plant-based films like The Game Changers has the ability to 'threaten his audience'.

Which is clear, when Rogan relishes in vegans leaving the movement and doesn't question their blatant pseudoscience - despite admitting that his carnivore diet made him 'more aggressive' and made him fear soiling himself.

Just like Kresser's attack on The Game Changers, Cyrus's justification for eating fish and feeling 'so much sharper' for it have already been flattened.

ND Dr. Matthew Nagra has spoken out about how 'fatigue (mental or physical) can be caused by a myriad of issues, which may not be diet-related

"It's important to note that the research on omega-3 supplements (EPA/DHA) and cognitive function is mixed, with potential benefit in older adults specifically. Of course, fish is a source of these omega-3s, but so is a vegan algae-based supplement," he said.

"That being said, it is unclear if vegans even need to supplement since we produce EPA and DHA from short-chain omega-3s (ALA) in foods like flax and our levels dont vary much from fish eaters.

He added: "Something that should give pause is when someone notices drastic improvements with a small dietary change. This SCREAMS placebo effect. On a physiological level, its impossible for a few meals of seafood to drastically change omega-3 levels, especially within the brain.

"This becomes even more likely when a vegan has constantly been told that their diet is deficient by those who clearly have not seen the data. We can start to believe itThat being said, we have no clue what Miley was actually eating."

Similarly, Team Sherzai M.D criticised Cyrus claims - stating: Entertainers, journalists and public figures dont determine health policies. Science does

Her brain not functioning properly is such a vague and multifaceted symptom affected by so many things, not just avoiding fish. Sleep deprivation, junk food, stress, not being organized, recreational drugs, etc. can affect cognition negatively.

Tyson's reasons were, in a way, too vague and anecdotal to properly debunk - but it's clear from the array of vegan bodybuilders, strongmen, and athletes that you can be in top shape without eating animals.

Miley Cyrus Reveals She Quit Her Vegan Diet For Health Reasons, Was ‘Running On Empty’ – Women’s Health

Miley Cyrus has been a vegan for years, but she just revealed in a new interview that shes stopped the diet because it was negatively impacting her health. But, she says, shes not happy about it.

Miley dropped the knowledge on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Wednesday. I was vegan for a very long time and Ive had to introduce fish and omegas into my life because my brain wasnt functioning properly, she said. Miley said she also was having intense hip pain that she thinks was due to her vegan diet.

FWIW: Miley knows some people arent going to be happy with that news. Vegans are going to come for me and thats OK. Im used to people coming for me, she said.

Miley said she followed the strictest [vegan diet] youve ever known from 2013 to 2019, and her first non-vegan meal was cooked by her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. My ex-husband cooked me some fish on the grill, she said. I cried, like, for a long time. I cried for the fish it really hurts me to eat fish.

This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

But while she doesnt exactly love eating fish, Miley said its really improved her health and her thinking. Now Im so much sharper than I was and I think that I was, at one point, pretty malnutritioned, she said. I remember going to Glastonbury [music festival] and that was a show that I lovedI loved my performancebut I was running on empty. Shes also added gluten back into her diet, BTW.

Miley said its really terrifying to leave veganism because of the backlash she might receive, but she wants people to know that she still loves animals. I have 22 animals on my farm in Nashville, Ive got 22 in my house in Calabasas, Im doing all I need to do for the animals, she said. But when it comes to my brain you cant be vegan and be this quick.

So, Miley now considers herself a pescatarian (i.e. a vegetarian who eats fish). Thats where Im at, she said. But, in true Miley style, shes open to other eating plans. Im experimenting a lot with my diet, and my body, and my routine and my exercise right now, she said.

And yeah, Miley called it: She's already getting served some haterade on Twitter over ending her vegan diet.

What Makes a Vegan Product? Or, When is Vegan Not Really Vegan? – vegconomist – the vegan business magazine

Redefine Meat

When is vegan not-vegan? The answer is subjective and has implications for what are purported to be vegan products. While self-identified vegans dont all share the same conception of the term, most generally agree that nobody can be 100% vegan. Why?

Most vegans recognize that every so-called vegan activity, from eating only a plant-based diet to operating an animal sanctuary, is done at the expense of animals. For example, any use of metal, such as a spoon or farm implement, is made possible only through the displacement (at least) of animals and the destruction of their habitat upon which are built mines, factories, towns, and other infrastructure.

Consequently, vegans also generally agree on a definition of veganism such as this one used by the Vegan Society.Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.

The Vegan Society adds that vegans also avoid animal-derived materials, productstested on animals and placesthat use animals for entertainment.

Products, then, can be said to be vegan if they exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation and cruelty. As we know, many and increasingly more products manage to do that. However, a number of ventures that are claimed to be vegan involve the exploitation of non-human animals. Some vegan food products are tested on animals in order to obtain GRAS accreditation.

A longstanding problem remains: how does one know whether a product is vegan? Fortunately, a longstanding solution exists: the Vegan Trademark. The Vegan Society, which coined the term vegan in 1944, established the Vegan Trademark in 1990. Since then, over 44,000 products around the world have been identified with the Vegan Trademark. Vegans know to look for the Vegan Trademark or some other vegan accreditation symbol there are several when they shop. Click here to learn more about the Vegan Societys Vegan Trademark.

Another, simpler, informal way for a producer to know whether a product is vegan or not is this: consider whether it would be acceptable to put a human in place of the non-human animal used in the research or production process. If it is not acceptable, then the product is not vegan.

For the Black Vegan Company, plant-based eating is a family affair that requires empathy, breakfast tacos – austin360

Everyone has their own reason for eating a plant-based diet.

For Robin Beltrn and her husband, it was purely a medical decision. After surviving an attempted robbery in 2014, Manuel went through a dozen abdominal surgeries. After several years, they finally had to accept that his stomach could no longer process meat or dairy.

The only problem was: She had no idea how to prepare meat-free foods. "I knew no vegans," she says.

They had two young children, and Robin decided the whole family would become vegan to support Manuel. People who have been through trauma already feel excluded and isolated, she says, and for him to be able to eat well and eat what the whole family was eating became her primary focus.

"Instead of cooking these separate meals for him, we wanted to do this together," she says.

She spent hours a day researching new-to-her ingredients and recipes. She started adding turmeric and paprika to her food to help relieve his inflammation. They switched to Himalayan sea salt, which is packed with minerals and tastes saltier than table salt, and that inspired them to use less salt.

"We didnt have much money, but instead of spending more money on a prescription we couldnt afford, we spent what we could on food," she says.

Her daughter was just an infant, and her son was at that "snacky 2 to 3" phrase, so she started replacing her kids favorite yogurts, milks and ice creams with plant milk-based products. She started using coconut milk in her coffee.

They both started doing yoga, and Manuels PTSD subsided. Shed been dealing with hair loss, but her hair grew back, and she lost a substantial amount of weight, but more importantly, their whole outlook on life changed. Outside their immediate family, however, Robin, who is Black, and Manuel, who is Hispanic, found themselves having to explain their dietary decisions, over and over again.

"When I finally told my family, they didnt really get it, but I told them, Im trying to save my husband and my hair is growing and I feel happy," she says.

The fog lifted

One of their friends, Rolando Rodriguez, had noticed those not-so-subtle improvements to their life.

The longtime friends grew up in Houston. Beltrn had long called Austin home, and Rodriguez was still in Houston, where they had recently been dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. "My body wasnt able to keep up with the physical work that needed to be done," Rodriguez says.

The Beltrns started hosting a Sunday dinner once a month, which is where Rodriguez first realized that vegan food wasnt all "mystery meat" and boring salads.

Rodriguez says he grew up watching family members struggle with diabetes, including losing limbs to the disease. "I had been trained to believe that the disease was hereditary, which it is, but food habits are also hereditary. The way we eat is passed down to us," he says.

After trying Robins food and seeing the positive changes in their whole family, he decided he wanted to start changing those habits.

"Over two years, Im watching my friends go through this dramatic change, mentally and physically. I said, I want to partake in that," he says.

Rodriguez had struggled for years with anxiety and depression, and he thought those were just normal things he was going to have to deal with as an adult. But he quit meat "cold turkey," and he started to experience some of the same physical and mental benefits. "The fog lifted and I was able to concentrate," he says.

Rodriguez and Beltrn started talking about what it would look like if they started a company to share what they were learning with other people.

They sent a batch of Beltrns five-alarm chili to their friend and fellow Houston native Nicole Valadez, who was living in Washington, D.C. "I ate the entire batch," she says. "I saw Rolando slimming up and feeling better and decided I wanted to make the switch, too."

Going vegan herself was easy, she says, but it was telling her family in Houston that she knew would be the hardest part. "Its so important for us to have our family traditions," Valadez says, so she started thinking about ways she could make vegan tamales at Christmas by using jackfruit instead of pork and what egg substitute she could use VeganEgg is her favorite so her mom still could make her breakfast tacos on the mornings when she visits.

"It was important to make culturally relevant dishes that are meaningful to me so we could make them vegan and not miss out on dinners with my family," she says.

Breakfast tacos are a particularly meaningful dish for Rodriguez, too. "To give up the idea of breakfast tacos on a Saturday morning, thats stripping away an incredible tradition for me," he says. "What is my grandmother going to say or think about me if I tell her I cant eat them? There are familiar consequences to changing your diet in our communities."

But when you find an alternative that everyone can eat like a ground beef or chorizo substitute, jackfruit or hearts of palm instead of pulled chicken or pork or that VeganEgg it allows people who are eating a plant-based diet to maintain those close bonds with their loved ones.

"These are very real positive consequences about how we live our lives and interact with our families," he says.

Empathy and eating together

Opening peoples eyes to the possibilities of vegan eating while taking into account very real cultural needs is what drives everything about the Black Vegan Company, from the online cooking classes and virtual and in-person grocery store tours that Beltrn hosts to the new products that the rest of the team members are hoping to sell in grocery stores soon. They also have a cookbook in production.

Plant-based eating has grown immensely in the past decade. Some people are drawn to it because of health and medical reasons, and others feel compelled to avoid meat and dairy products because of ethics or the environmental effects.

But no matter why, when or how someone eats a plant-based diet, there are nutritional, culinary, cultural and relationship factors at play.

The Black Vegan Company wants to help people address all of those by encouraging people to ask deeper questions about what role food plays in the home and how a plant-based diet can fit within a familys time and financial budget. What culturally relevant foods are important to the extended family, and how can a wider social group have healthier conversations about what we eat and why? How can we teach and lean on each other without judging others food choices?

When veganism is presented as trading something "regular" for something "weird," that can be the root of many problems, Beltrn says. Its important to normalize plant-based eating and have empathy for the transitional issues that come when making a big dietary change.

Food is how we show love to each other, Rodriguez says, and its not uncommon for a parent who is used to showing love to their kids through food to go through a mourning period when they cant or dont want to serve the kinds of food they used to.

Valadez, who now also works with the Black Vegan Company, wrote about her family going through all five stages of grief when she told them about her transition to veganism ahead of Thanksgiving one year. "They were angry, they were in denial, they tried to bargain, all of it," she says. "Eventually, they got to acceptance," but it remains an ongoing and profound conversation about cultural values, as well as health and wellness.

"We want to show people how to talk to their brothers and sisters who are going to give you a hard time at the holidays," Rodriguez says. "One way is to remind them, This isnt about you. I need your empathy.

"Were striving for more civil discourse, and its a marathon, not a sprint. Both sides can be less judgy of each other. Vegans feel judged for trying something new, and vegans judge the nonvegans for not adopting their way of eating."

Making it a family affair

Beltrn says she tells clients to be realistic about expectations that they can relearn entirely how to grocery shop and cook in just a day or two.

When a family first starts this transition, Beltrn asks them to list what foods they like to eat and what are their must-haves in order to survive, the gotta-have pantry and fridge staples. Then, start looking for good plant-based alternatives for each one, maybe starting with a single product each week, say, yogurt or milk. Buy a few brands, but not the original product youre used to buying, and see which one gets the most votes in a family taste test. (To find out more about their services, go to

"There are definitely different stages of veganism," she says. There might be a stage when youre upset or your kid is mad that they cant have what they want, but that desire to re-create some of those favorite textures and tastes will drive your familys discoveries, both in the kitchen and in the grocery store.

This is about learning together and bending together. "If your kid wanted to play basketball, youd put a goal out there and get a ball and support them on their journey," Beltrn says. Its OK if not everyone eats the same all the time, but its also important to make sure that everyone feels like they are included at the family table.

Eating meatless meals a few days a week is one way to ease into it, Beltrn says, and its important to have the whole family involved in picking some of these new dishes to try, such as cauliflower buffalo "wings" or barbecue sliders made from jackfruit.

"Then it becomes a family activity and something you are doing together, even if you arent doing it seven days a week," Beltrn says.

She also encourages people not to get frustrated if they try a new product or a new recipe and dont like it. There are hundreds of products on the market, and one persons way of cooking meat-free foods might not be aligned with the kind of foods you like. Try out new sources for recipes until you find someone whose tastes "fit" with yours.

"Dairy is the part that freaks everybody out," she says, but vegan substitutes have improved so much over the past 10 years that there are plenty of options sold in mainstream grocery stores that satisfy even the most fervent cheese- and ice cream-lovers. Beltrns favorites are Daiya, which makes a cheeselike product that shreds and melts, and Chao from Field Roast.

Major improvements also have been made to meat substitutes, such as those from Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, but as a health and wellness coach, Beltrn explains that processed foods are processed foods and they should often be consumed in moderation.

She usually uses mushrooms and jackfruit to provide a hearty base for a dish that might otherwise be based on meat. When she does use a meat substitute, she adds extra layers of fresh ingredients to add the fiber and nutrients that a body naturally craves.

Beltrn uses JustEgg, another vegan egg substitute, when she makes her fried "chicken" with breadcrumbs and mushrooms, and she uses vegan grounds to make lasagna, spaghetti and chili. (Gardein and Quora are two popular brands, and you also can cook lentils to make a from-scratch version.)

At Thanksgiving, Beltrn makes her familys sweet potato pie using coconut milk instead, and "it is better than the original recipe." That was one way she started to break down the stereotype that vegan dishes were somehow less than nonvegan food.

"The most encouraging thing was when my mom went shopping at the grocery store and came home with all these blueberry dairy-free yogurts. It was the only (vegan) thing in her fridge, but she tried."

Today, her mom is 70% vegan, and she served vegan burgers on the Fourth of July. Thats the kind of small win that Rodriguez says families should celebrate.

"Robins got something special," Rodriguez says. "Heres this Black woman in this very Mexican mans kitchen helping to start this journey together because of a thing that were all too familiar with." But the love of food and people coming together around food, which is also something they are all so familiar with, is also undeniably there.

"These difficult stories, these problems, they can become the beginning of a great story," he says. "For me, it was like what Tupac said (in the song Changes): If you change the way you eat, youll change the way you think and the way you treat each other."

Fried "Chicken" Shrooms

Want that fried chicken taste and crunch without the guilt? Try this fried mushroom recipe to satisfy your craving. Use these bites in poboys, fried "chicken" dinner with mashed potatoes or "chicken" nuggets with ketchup and french fries. Instead of a commercial egg substitute, you can use chickpea water, which is called aquafaba. If you dont want to fry these in oil, use an air fryer set to 375 degrees.

Robin Beltrn

18 to 20 shiitake mushrooms (or oyster mushrooms or black pearl mushrooms)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup fresh dill

2 cups panko breadcrumbs

2 cups flour

2 cups egg replacement (Just Egg or aquafaba)

3 cups olive oil (or use an air fryer)

Cut the stems off mushrooms and wash well to remove any dirt. Completely dry them and slice into rounds of desired thickness (we slice about 1/4-inch rounds).

In a bowl, combine salt, dill, breadcrumbs and flour. Mix thoroughly.

Dip the mushrooms in the "egg" wash. Immediately after, dip them in the breadcrumb mixture. For best results, dip/coat one slice at a time. Place the dipped/coated mushrooms to the side on a plate.

Once youve finished dipping/coating all the mushrooms, add 3 cups of olive oil to a deep fryer or skillet. (You can use an air fryer instead for a lower-calorie dish.)

Set oil to medium-high heat on the stove or 375 degrees in the deep fryer. (You can also use 375 degrees in the air fryer.)

Fry mushrooms until golden brown (2 to 4 minutes total). If frying in pan, flip mushrooms to fry on both sides. Place fried mushrooms on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil.

Allow mushrooms to cool for 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh dill (optional). Serves 4.

Robin Beltrn

Jalapeo Aioli

1/3 cup vegan sour cream or mayo

1 tablespoon fresh dill

1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt

1 lemon, squeezed

1/2 to 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeo (optional)

To a bowl, add the sour cream (or mayo), dill, salt, lemon juice and jalapeo, if using. Mix thoroughly. Serve with fried "chicken" mushrooms.

Guajillo Jackfruit "Pork"

Whenever I prepare a dish that my nonvegan family says tastes as good as stuff with meat in it, I do a little happy dance. I love exposing them to new, healthy ways of consuming our favorite classics and reprogramming what they think about veganism. During one holiday season, the recipe that knocked it out of the park was a vegan take on pork tamales. In order to mimic pork for this recipe, we used jackfruit. Jackfruit is a large fruit grown in tropical regions of the world. I like cooking with it because it looks like and has the consistency of shredded beef or pork. This makes it the perfect meat substitute for dishes that require a shredded, meaty texture, like pork tamales or pulled pork sandwiches. I like to use the Jackfruit Companys lightly seasoned frozen jackfruit. This quantity of guajillo sauce and filling will make about 10 dozen tamales, but you can reduce the quantity by half if you want to make a smaller batch or use the filling in another way. The technique of cooking the jackfruit could be adapted for making barbecue-style sandwiches.

Nicole Valadez

For the guajillo sauce:

15 guajillo chiles

3 ancho chiles

6 garlic cloves, peeled

1/2 onion, halved

2 teaspoon salt

For the jackfruit "pork":

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup diced onion

6 1/2 cups jackfruit

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3 teaspoons onion powder

2 teaspoons brown sugar

Salt, to taste

To make the sauce: Fill a large pot with water and set on high heat. While you wait for the water to boil, remove the stems from the guajillo and ancho chiles. Slice each chile in half and remove the seeds. Once the water is at a rolling boil, add the chiles, garlic and onion. Boil until the peppers are soft, about 30 minutes.

Transfer peppers, garlic and onion to a blender and add salt. Blend until smooth and add salt to taste, as needed. The sauce should be well salted, smooth and not very thick. Add a bit of water and blend if too thick. Set aside.

For the jackfruit, set a large pan to medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and diced onion. Saut onions until they are a bit translucent, about 3 minutes. Lower heat slightly if onion begins to brown.

Add jackfruit to the pan and mash it to break up the large pieces. Once fully mashed, the jackfruit should resemble shredded beef.
