Another Lentil Loaf Recipe
2 cup dry brown lentils, rinsed
1 bay leaf
1 cup uncooked fine bulgur wheat
1 cup soft whole-wheat bread
1 egg substitute, beaten
1 tbsp ketchup
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried tarragon
1 salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp tomato paste or tomato
Prep: Cook lentils and bay leaf in pot with 6 cups water. Bring to a
boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until lentils are soft and water
has been absorbed, about 45 min.
Combine bulgur and 2 cups water in a med. saucepan. Bring to a boil,
reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 min.
Preheat oven to 350F. Transfer lentils to a large mixing bowl. Add
bulgur, and remaining ingredients except tomato paste or sauce. Mix
well with your hands until thoroughly combined. Pat mixture into a
9" loaf pan. Bake for 40 min. until firm but not dry. During last
minutes of baking, brush top with tomato paste or sauce. Let cool for
15 min. Cut into slices and serve warm.
This goes wonderfully with mashed potatoes and your favorite
vegetable! The leftovers taste so good in a pita pocket, and if there
are mashed potatoes leftover, I stuff the pocket with both. Mmmm!

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Scientific studies over recent years have shown that high consumption of animal fat can result in higher probability of cancer, heart disease and other major health problems.
Most of the bad side-effects reported, such as feeling tired, diarrhea, constipation, or bad headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes olive oil, broccoli, soy and tea)
The nutrients known as flavonoids discovered in these types of food are thought to have properties in preventing cancer.
Experts investigating the medical effects of flavonoids think they also have most other health benefits, including antiviral and antioxidant properties.
Most are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your diet system.
