Bean Burgers By Anita Cecena. Recipe
1/2 cup minced green onions.
1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic.
2 tbsp white wine/stock
29 oz cooked drained pinto beans
3/4 cup cracker meal or bread crumbs
2 egg whites
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 tsp italian seasonings (oregano, basil,, etc.)
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Saute onions/garlic in stock/white wine.
Combine with beans, cracker meal, egg whites, parsley, vinegar,
seasonings. Mash well with fork until blended, but not entirely
smooth. (Here I depart from recipe...I make up a bunch of hamburger
sized patties, freeze some, refridge some, and cook them as needed
for about 20 minutes in a toaster oven...I know they are done when
the egg/bread crumbs are brown and the patty is a bit dry. I find
this basic recipe can absorb many, many changes.I've used white
beans, black beans, whatever, sauteed mushrooms, hot sauce, catsup,
etc. The main thing is to get a good texture/cohesiveness in the
final product, so it sticks together. Have fun!)

Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't miss meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires care and attention in monitoring you energy intake, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is slower acting.
* Don't forget the fiber
Decreasing the carbs in your meals often results in fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
