Brain-Dead Food: Curry Rice & Spinach Recipe
1 box near east curry rice
1 box frozen spinach
1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes (slightly
I might have posted this before, but one of my favorite brain-dead
foods (outside of spaghetti), is to take one box of Near-East Curry
Rice and cook according to directions, without the added fat. While
that is cooking, microwave 1 frozen block of spinach (for some reason
fresh spinach doesn't taste as good to me in this recipe -- and takes
longer unless already de-stemmed and washed). When that is done,
drain and set aside. Nuke 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed,
and 1 can of diced tomatoes (minus some of the juice), mixed together
(generally for about 3 minutes).
When rice is done, mix spinach, rice, beans and tomatoes (generally
in a large bowl). Snarf. Not only does it taste good, but it's
really colorful with the yellow rice, black beans, red tomatoes and
green spinach. Very satisfying. Even my almost-3-yr-old loves it.
Approximate total time: 25-30 minutes (time to cook rice)

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 low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* It is possible to make wonderful smoothies using low carb yogurt.
Ok, well, it is not really cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using low carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you should make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the product. Many are only a little lower and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The alliaceae family of foods is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is very little real proof published, allyl sulphides are also thought to aid in blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
