Chicken Barley Soup (Low Cal) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

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

Recipe Preparation

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

Losing weight

Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. A good number of are only slightly lowered and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.

* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda. Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to use splenda instead. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.

Flavonoid foods
(inlcudes lettuce, fennel, lima bean & chamomile)

The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these foods are thought by experts to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the effects of flavonoids believe they may well also have numerous healthy benefits, amongst them, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
A good number also help you lose weight, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
