Barley Mushroom Casserole (Vegan) Recipe
1 cup chopped onions
2 cup sliced mushrooms
2 package instant broth/season
2 1/2 cup water
1 salt and pepper, to taste
5 1/4 oz barley, 3/4 cup
Add your favorite spice to this casserole, if you wish. Try 1/2
teaspoon of either curry powder, basil, oregano, dill or thyme or
enjoy it as it is with the delicious subtle flavor of mushrooms. In a
medium saucepan over medium heat cook onions & mushrooms till tender
about 10 min adding small amounts of water if necessary to prevent
drying. Add broth mix, water and salt & pepper and bring to a boil.
Stir in barley, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 50min until
barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir occassionally while
cooking and add more water if necessary. Note: I eliminated the 2T+2t
of reduced calorie margarine to reduce the 5g per serving of fat in
the original recipe.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for everything, but it gives very good results for the most part.
* Use soy flour or soy baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, repalce it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins soya baking mix. In many cases, you can convert your best loved recipes that use normal wheat flour to use these.
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
