* A simple Mexican-style casserole with beef and cheese -- This a
conglomeration of several of my favorite Mexican casserole recipes. I
took what I liked best from each one and this is what it turned out
to be. My family devoured it instantly and completely, and it has
become one of our favorites. Yield: Serves 4-6.
* You can adjust the seasonings to suit your own tastes; I listed
conservative amounts (for me, anyway!). You can also add salsa
(homemade is best) to the casserole, if desired. Serve with fried
rice (plain or flavored) and green salad.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 15 minutes preparation, 20 minutes cooking.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.

Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
The majority of the negative side effects stated, such as general tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the consequential change in blood acid levels can result in bone loss, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have struggled to find real evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
Cruciferous vegetables, Superfoods that help with Dieting
(includes Broccoli, Celery, Collard greens and Rutabaga)
These cruciferous vegetables are jam-packed with vitamins (folate and vitamin c, for example), minerals (eg. potassium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
Over and above their most other great health properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by scientists to reduce the risk of cancer.
