African Style Vegetables In Coconut Milk Recipe
2 tbsp ghee -=or=- vegetable oil
3 each whole cloves
1 large onion, chopped
2 each garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup potatoes, cubed
2 cup carrots, diced
2 cup green beans, chopped
1/2 tbsp berbere
1/2 tbsp hungarian paprika
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 salt & pepper
1 cilantro, chopped
Heat ghee or vegetable oil with the whole cloves over low heat. When
hot, add the onions & garlic & saute, stirring occasionally, for a
few moments. Add the carrots & potatoes & continue to saute for 5
minutes, stir to prevent sticking. Add the green beans & saute for
just a few more minutes. Slowly stir in the coconut milk. Use only
as much as you need to create a thick sauce: the vegetables should
not be swimming in milk. Carefully bring to a boil, reduce heat &
simmer until the vegetables are cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir
occasionally otherwise the milk & vegetables will burn. Garnish with
cilantro. Serve with an Ethiopian Lentil stew or with an Indian dal
to mix cuisines, & bread. If you prefer the vegetables to be hotter,
add more berbere. It is best if this dish is made ahead of time &
then left to let the flavours marry. In place of cilantro, use fresh

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals
Most low carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a highly efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in monitoring you energy intake, as the energy provided by fat or protein is less efficient.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the package. Many are only a little decreased and in some instances still greater than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)
The alliaceae range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific proof at hand, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
