1 lb grape leaves (1 jar)
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup tvp granules or flakes mixed with:
7/8 cup ; water, hot
1 cup rice, brown, cooked
1/4 cup parsley, fresh, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp honey or substitute
2 tbsp lemon juice
Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until tender.
Combine the remaining ingredients.
Place about 2 tsp stuffing in the center of each leaf, on the vein
side. Fold up bottom of leaf, fold sides in and roll toward tip into
a firm roll. Brush the bottom of a deep heavy-bottomed pan with oil,
add slices of lemon, then place a layer of rolles folded side down.
Place the next layer of rolls carefully on top. Place a pan or dinner
plate on top of the rolls and weight it down with some heavy canned
goods. This prevents rolls opening up. Add 2 cups hot vegetable
stock. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 30
minutes. Cool before removing from pan.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make delicious smoothies using reduced carb yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really call it cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you should ensure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Fiber is essential
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
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.
