Italian Barley (Vegan) Recipe
1/2 cup Chopped onions
1/2 cup Chopped sweet green peppers
1 Garlic clove, minced
1 can Tomatoes, undrained/in chunk
16 oz. can
1/2 teaspoon Dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon Dried basil
2 cup Water
5 1/4 oz Barley, 3/4 cup
A tasty side dish for almost any entree, this filling grain also
reheats nicely in the microwave. In a medium saucepan over medium
heat cook onions, green pepper, and garlic until lightly browned. Add
small amounts of water if necessary to prevent drying. Add tomatoes
spices and water. Bring to a boil. Stir in barley, reduce heat to
low, cover and simmer 50 mins. until barley is tender and water is
absorbed. Stir occasionally while cooking and add more water if
necessary. Note: the original recipe called to saute the 1st three
ingredients in olive oil(1T+1t) but I chose to eliminate it and
eliminate almost 5 gms fat per serving.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
As an alternative to focusing on the junk foods you ought to eliminate from your dietary regime, direct your attention to the sensible foods that you might want to introduce to your daily routine. If you are able to inject the recommended portions healthy fruit & vegetables into your meal plan, you will discover that stop feeling hungry and have a far lower chance of being seduced by those damaging mid-morning potato chips.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very difficult (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carb diet.
The majority of the negative side effects reported, like feeling tired, stomach upsets, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and sweet gourd)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. This chemical is responsible for the vivid red colour of a good number of food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, it is not damaged if it is cooked, but is really increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its most valuable value is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to help to lower the chances of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many experts to block the development of atherosclerosis.
