a host of defenders in his dust..

The Sun sports game of the week was an eight- and nine-year-old soccer game between Island Pest Control and West Coast Surf Shop. This was an important matchup for the standings. If West Coast Surf Shop were to win, they would move into a two way tie for second place with the Island Pest Control team.

More than half way through the first half, Julius Petereit broke the zero-zero tie for Pest Control with a lower left corner shot, 1-0. Two minutes later, David Daigle sent a long lead pass up to Ryan Joseph, who finished it lower right for the tying goal, 1-1. West Coast Surf Shop's defense, led by goalie Charlie Harface and defenders Callen Achor, Malita Garofalo and Lila Naeher, held strong until the two minute mark. Sean Rodriquez made a nice center-field pass to Petereit, who blasted it into the back of the net and made it 2-1 Island Pest Control at the half.

The powerful left foot of Sean Rodriquez took control in the second half. Eight minutes in, Rodriquez weaved through defenders down the left side and shot into lower right for his first goal, 3-1 Pest Control. Then the real excitement began. One minute later, Luke Marvin scored for Surf Shop on a penalty kick after a handball in the box, 3-2. Two minutes later, Rodriquez found a loose ball on his left foot and again shot lower right for his second goal, 4-2. Not 30 seconds later, Marvin dribbled through three defenders and took an awesome elevated shot. Lifting it over the goalies head for his second goal, 4-3. About 30 seconds later, Petereit dribbled the ball down field and blasted a long ball that went off the goalie and in for his third goal, 5-3.

The excitement didn't end until the final whistle. West Coast Surf Shop pressed on the rest of the game, but the Pest Control defense led by second half goalie Devin Calderon and defenders Ana Gonzalez, Morgan Horesh and mid-fielder Rain Cooper kept them scoreless. The game ended when Rodriquez picked up one more loose-ball in the box and sent it upper left this time for his third second half goal and the Island Pest Control victory, 6-3.

Tweak your taste buds

Anna Maria Island Sun News Story

Ellen signed copies of her book, "Eat Vegan on
$4 a Day," at Tampa's VegFest recently.


Bill Clinton continues to be all over the airwaves raving about how a doctor-ordered and prescribed vegan (no meat, fish, chicken, eggs or dairy) diet has saved him from near death and a third bypass surgery. Recently he appeared on David Letterman, who could not stop raving about how trim and healthy the former president looked. As a cookbook author, I get asked everywhere I speak now, "How do you change a lifetime of bad eating habits?"

Truly, life is so much about what we get used to. For instance, when training for any sport, you may wake up with some serious pains a day or two after you adopt a new routine. Generally, the pain fades away within two to three days. And so it may go when you change your way of eating.

An effective strategy for changing your eating habits is to fool your taste buds by eating the same types of foods you've always eaten, but adjusting the recipes to include less expensive and more healthful ingredients. Let's take soup as an example. Soups are comfort foods; they fill us up, and they cure what ails us. Many of us grew up believing chicken soup was good for our souls, for chasing the flu and for making strong bodies.

But chicken can be costly. A soup chock-full of beans and greens instead of chicken is just as comforting, while giving you a lot of nutritional bang for your buck. It provides the protein and calcium you need, at a lower price. If you use the right seasonings, you can re-create the savory richness of chicken in a beans-and-greens soup, without the expense. One ingredient that pumps up the flavor of soup without high cost is miso. A fermented paste made from soy (and sometimes other beans, rice and barley), miso is high in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Minestrone, one of my favorites, is a versatile soup that can be made with many variations on the basic theme. At most restaurants, minestrone is a bean soup with pasta and a few veggies thrown in, and it often contains chicken broth. When you make it at home, replace the chicken broth with water mixed with several teaspoons of powdered vegetable broth. Use whatever beans and whole-grain pasta are on sale or on hand.

One of the things I love about making minestrone is that it gives me an opportunity to use up all the mature vegetables in the fridge. Still, as with all recipes, the flavor will really come alive if you use fresh ingredients.

Another great makeover candidate is chili. This classic stick-to-your-ribs stew is usually made with ground or cubed beef, but it can be just as spicy and satisfying – and a lot less expensive – if made with beans instead. However, if chili is just not chili in your book without a meaty texture and flavor, add textured soy protein (TSP), which can be found in most natural food stores. Made from defatted soy flour that has been cooked under pressure, extruded into various shapes, and dried, TSP has a long shelf life if kept dry in tightly closed containers.

It is an excellent, low-fat source of protein, fiber, iron, magnesium and other minerals and vitamins. Depending on the shape of the TSP, you can substitute it for ground meat or meat chunks in recipes. To use TSP, simply rehydrate it with hot water or vegetable broth, which will increase both its volume and weight. One ounce of dry TSP will replace approximately three ounces of meat and will cost about $.25 per serving. More ideas soon, but gotta run.
