Garlicky Green Beans Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb green beans, topped/tailed
2 tbsp butter
1 garlic clove, fine chop
1 salt
1 ground pepper, fresh

Recipe Preparation

Boil beans ahead of time then reheat in the garlic/butter mixture.
Always run cold water over green vegetables to stop the cooking. This
also helps them retain their colour. 1. Bring a large pot of salted
water to boil on high heat. Add beans and boil until crisp-tender,
about 2 to 4 minutes. Alternately, steam beans for about
5 minutes, until crisp-tender. 2. Drain beans and refresh
under cold running water. 3. Heat butter and garlic together in
skillet on medium heat. Toss in beans and saute until beans are hot
and coated with mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

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 lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use splenda instead of sugar. Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.

* Eat regular meals Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbs are a rapid acting energy source. A reduced carb diet needs extreme care in controlling your energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is less efficient.

A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
