1. Place the rinsed beans in a bowl, add 2 to 3 cups of water and soak
overnight. Check the beans occasionally and add water as necessary to
keep them moist.
2. Pour the beans and the water in which they were soaked into a heavy
saucepan and add 2 to 3 more cups of water. Bring to a boil over
medium-high heat, then lower heat and simmer, partially covered, for
about 45 minutes, until the beans are cooked but still firm. Check
occasionally and add water if necessary. Drain the beans, reserving
the cooking liquid.
3. Melt the lard in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the beans
and lightly fry them in the lard. Set aside.
4. Melt the drippings in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add the
onion and cook until it is translucent.
5. Combine the sausage and the beef with all the spices up through the
oregano. Add this meat-and-spice mixture to the pot with the onion.
Break up any lumps with a fork and cook, stirring occasionally, until
the meat is very well browned.
6. Add the reserved bean-cooking liquid to the pot. Stir in all the
remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cook,
uncovered, for 1/2 hour longer. Stir occasionally. Add water only if
necessary to maintain the consistency of a chunky soup.
7. Taste when curiosity becomes unbearable and courage is strong.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use soy flour or bake mix.
When you require flour for baking, repalce it with soya flour or a bake mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In many cases, you can change your best loved recipes that use wheat flour to use these alternatives.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, papaya & baby jackfruit)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is accountable for the deep red colour of quite a few natural foods.
Fortunately, unlike numerous nutrients, it does not become less effective if cooked but is genuinely improved by the cooking process.
Its most valuable health contribution is that it works as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risks of cancer.
Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It's also believed to curtail the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
