Garlic Green Beans Recipe
1 lb green beans, ends trimmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp red-wine vinegar
1 tbsp walnut or olive oil
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
I tried this recipe from Jane Brody's "Good Food Gourmet" for
Thanksgiving last year and my family really loved it! Steam beans for
5 to 7 minutes or until tender crisp. Rinse briefly under cold water
to preserve color, but do not chill. Cover and keep warm. In a large
bowl, combine garlic and remaining ingredients. Add warm green beans
and toss until well coated. If desired, you can reheat in microwave
before serving. If you don't want such a strong flavor of garlic,
simmer the unpeeled cloves of garlic in a cup of water for 5 minutes
before peeling and mincing. I don't think the original recipe is too

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.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (although certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
