Charcoal Grilled Salmon With Spicy Black Bean Recipe
1/2 lb black beans, soaked
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot
1/2 celery rib
2 oz ham, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed and diced
1 clove garlic
1 bay leaf, tied together with
3 sprigs thyme
5 cup water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
24 oz salmon steaks
Combine in a large saucepan the beans, onion, carrot, celery, ham,
jalapenos, whole clove garlic, bay leaf with thyme, and water. Simmer
until beans are tender, about 2 hours, adding more water as necessary
to keep the beans covered. Remove the carrot, celery, herbs and
garlic, and drain off the remaining cooking liquid. Toss the beans
with the minced garlic, hot pepper flakes and the juice of 1/2 a
lemon. Set aside.
While the beans are cooking, combine the juice of a whole lemon,
olive oil, and basil leaves. Pour over the salmon steaks, and
refrigerate for 1 hour. Grill the salmon over a moderately high flame
for 4-5 minutes per side, basting with some of the marinade every
minute. Serve each steak with a portion of beans.

Food Tips of the Week
Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that need sugar can be modified to make use of splenda instead. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for everything, but it gives pretty good results once you have it cracked.
* You can make delicious smoothies by using low carb yogurt.
I know, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you love smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using low carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Obviously, you will need to ensure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and the whole fruit as the fiber will help.

The chemical lypcopene is a natural coloring compound and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the agent responsible for the vivid red hue of a good number of fruits and vegetables.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutrients, lycopene not only survives being cooked, but is essentially strengthened by cooking.
Its most important benefit is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risks of cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most powerful fighter of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It is also believed to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
