3 cup cooked beans (kidney or pinto beans, are good)
1 medium onion, finely chopped

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, either in a food processor or
with a potato masher. The cooked beans should be mashed, not pureed,
and the mixture should form into balls easily. If the mixture is too
wet, add a little more breadcrumbs or flour. Form the mixture into
eight burgers and place them on a lightly greased baking tray. Bake
at 350'F. for 45 minutes, turning them over after 30 minutes. Place
the burgers inside buns ("Eating In" also includes a recipe for
whole-wheat buns) and top with fried onions, lettuce, tomato,
pickles, or whatever your taste dictates. Each burger contains: 352
calories, 0 cholesterol, 1 gram fat, 20 grams protein.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Use soy flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most cases, you may convert your most popular recipes that use conventional wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs great care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
In addition to their many other great health properties, the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
