Injera (Ethiopian Flat Bread) Recipe
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 package dry yeast
2 1/2 cup water, warm
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Combine the flours and yeast in a ceramic or glass bowl. Add the warm
water and mix into a fairly thin, smooth batter.
Let the mixture sit for three full days at room temperature.
Stir the mixture once a day. It will bubble and rise. When you are
ready to make the injera, add the baking soda and salt and let the
batter sit for 10-15 minutes. Heat a small, nonstick 9-inch skillet.
When a drop of water bounces on the pan's surface, take about 1/3 cup
of the batter and pour it in the skillet quickly, all at once. Swirl
the pan so that the entire bottom is evenly coated, then return to
heat. The injera is cooked only on one side and the bottom should not
brown. When the moisture has evaporated and lots of "eyes" appear on
the surface, remove the injera. Let each injera cool and then stack
them as you go along. If the first injera is undercooked, try using
less of the mixture, perhaps 1/4 cup, and maybe cook it a bit longer.
Be sure not to overcook it. Injera should be soft and pliable so that
it can be rolled or folded, like a crepe.

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.
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.
The brassica family, Wonder foods that help with Your diet
(eg. Cauliflower, Boiled potatoes, Mizuna and Radishes)
Members of the brassica family are packed with vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (selenium and potassium, for example), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
In addition to their numerous healthy effects, a few of these nutrients are thought to help reduce the cancer risk.
