Bean Barley & Sausage Soup Recipe
IOWA REC NEWS, MAY 1992
1 lb kidney beans, dry
1 package smoked polish sausage,sliced
7 cup water
1 cup barley
2 garlic cloves, peeled
3 bay leaves
Put rinsed beans in large saucepan. Add water, cover and let stand
Drain off water the next day. Put beans, barley and remaining
ingredients into crockpot. Stir. Cover and cook on high for 4
hours. Remove bay leaves. Salt to taste when serving.
Sylvia's comments: I nuked the beans to fast-soak them, and it worked
great. Even the kids liked this one! I used a fine-ground wurst
instead of Polish sausage and cut it into bite-sized pieces before
cooking. I also added some powdered beef stock to the water for
cooking. Then I packed the soup into empty jars to take to work. It
reheats great! Also worked well for a quick supper for the kids.
Definitely a keeper. I might add some chopped browned onions next

The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, in particular those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Most of the unpleasant side-effects reported, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes cranberry, kale, scarlet runner bean and basil)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which are present in these fruits and vegetables show promise as anti-carcinogens.
Doctors who have been studying the properties of flavonoids suspect that they may well also have many other health benefits, amongst them, anti-asthma and anti-platelet powers.
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
