Chicken Barley Soup (Low Cal) Recipe
3 lb chicken, cut in pieces
1/2 cup uncooked barley
9 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 celery stalks with leaves
1 small onion
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper, freshly ground
1/4 tsp celery seed
1 1/2 cup green beans cut, fresh
Place chicken, water, leaves from celery and small onion in a large
saucepan. (Reserve celery stalks.) Cover saucepan and bring to a
boil; reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 hours until chicken is tender.
Remove chicken. Strain broth into bowl; chill until fat sets on top.
Remove fat. Remove skin and bones from chicken, discard. Cut chicken
into bite-sized pieces, set aside. (My note: if you want less than
8 servings, freeze extra broth and chicken separately in meal-sized
portions.) Return broth to saucepan. Chop reserved celery stalks, add
to broth with chopped onion, carrot, parsley, barley, lemon juice,
seasonings. Cover and simmer 20 min. Add fresh green beans and
chicken; continue cooking 15 min or until beans are tender. Each
serving 1 1/2 cup.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to add in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Cut up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carbohydrate diet needs care and attention in managing your energy intake, as the energy provided by protein and fat is far slower to act.

(includes Kale, Lettuce, Mustard greens and Rutabaga)
Altthough not always popular with children, these vegetables are jam-packed with vitamins (including vitamin c and folate), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, isothiocyanates, and indole-3-carbinol.
Over and above their numerous other beneficial effects, the isothiocyanates in these are thought by experts to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
