Anasazi & Pinto Beans With Hominy & Green Chiles Recipe
1 1/2 cup dried anasazi beans
1 1/2 cup dried pinto beans
10 cup water
1 tsp salt
3 cup dried indian hominy
3 green anaheim chiles, for garnish
Soak the beans overnight in water to cover. In the morning rinse the
beans with cold water and place in a large pot with fresh water to
cover. Stir in the salt, cover and simmer slowly 2 to 2 1/2 hours,
until the beans are tender. Add water when necessary and stir
occasionally to prevent the beans from burning.
Add hominy and simmer, covered, 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The
hominy and beans should be very soft and moist, but not too watery.
While the beans and hominy are cooking, roast, peel, seed and dice the
chiles. Sprinkle on top of the cooked beans for garnish. *****
Most southwestern Indians grow beans. The Hopis grow a variety of
beans in terraces along their high mesas, where the crop is irrigated
by natural springs. After the harvest the beans are dried and
stored. Some beans are used for ceremonial purposes - from weddings
to Kachina dances - while others are used for their day-to-day meals.
For suburban and city dwellers, I've found that pinto beans, white
beans, or red beans work well, but I suggest you also experiment with
some of the other varieties of beans - like anasazi beans - that are
now available commercially. Or you may want to be adventuresome and
grow your own variety. To round out this meal, the beans can be
served with Lamb Stuffed Green Chiles, Pan Fried Trout, or Venison

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 low carb diet tips:
* Don't miss meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Our bodies need energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting energy source. A lower carb diet requires great care in monitoring you intake of energy, as any energy provided by fat or protein is much slower acting.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is too little scientific proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce problems with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and insomnia.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so make sure you add them to your diet system.
