Run/Walk for Research in Ajax, ON
On Sunday, July 27th, Renae Mohammed (pictured below) hosted a
Run/Walk for Research on the Ajax Lakefront trail. They also handed out informational materials from PHA Canada. This Run/Walk was held in honour of Renae’s mother, who was diagnosed with IPAH 5 years ago. From Renae: "Sunday July 27th was a beautiful day for the first ever PHA Canada Run/Walk For Research, in Ajax, ON. 72 people and 4 dogs enjoyed a nice run/walk along the beautiful lakefront trail. There were also refreshments and a prize raffle. The fundraiser was very successful. Our goal was to raise $500, and we raised $5815 (and counting) for PHA Canada!! Thank you to everyone who came out to support the cause: I'm looking forward to this being an annual event!"
We are thrilled that Renae’s fundraiser is the very first
to contribute to PHA Canada’s brand new research fund. Congratulations to Renae and her team for a fantastic fundraising effort!

Baked Battered Mushrooms
Enjoy a “patio meal” during the heat of August without all the fat! After a high fat meal, it has been shown that blood flow can slow down by up to 20% - this lessens the amount of oxygen being transported to the lungs. (reference: John McDougall, MD Internal Medicine). Check out wholicious.net to get “fork smart”.
White mushrooms – 15-20 medium
Whole grain bread- 4 slices
Yellow corn meal- ½ C
Garlic powder – 1tSp, Onion powder – 1 tSp
Unsweetened almond milk – 1 cup
Prepare breadcrumbs by toasting bread until brown and dry, and then use a food processor to pulse the bread into crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and whisk together the corn meal, garlic powder and onion powder. Build a dipping station using three bowls: 1 filled with almond milk, 1 with breadcrumbs, and 1 with the corn meal mixture. Dip mushrooms in this order: almond milk, corn meal mixture, almond milk again, and then breadcrumbs. Once mushrooms are evenly coated, Place battered mushrooms on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 mins and then turn over and cook 10-15 mins more or until golden brown. Alternatively, instead of mushrooms, try zucchini wedges, red bell pepper strips, onion rings!
Ed. note: ensure to select whole grain bread which is low in sodium.
