This one's a keeper...a tasty, light, soupy type dish. Soba noodles lose about 80% of their sodium when cooked in unsalted water. Rinse and drain the soba thoroughly after cooking to remove any lingering salt.
Mmmm...I had never though to add herbs to my cookies until now but it totally works! A bit of rosemary, cayenne and chocolate makes the most amazing spicy sweet cookie I think I've ever had. Golden on the outside, chewy on the inside. Mmmm....definitely keep it as a treat though ;)
Beans, beans, they're good for you heart. The more you eat, the more you .....live awesomely!! Haha! Lots of people are scared to eat beans and grains...I have no idea why. Beans are a phytonutrient rich food and an excellent addition to a , , healthy diet. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommended a shift towards a plant based diet (see here, here, here), and beans are a great source of plant protein (see also here, here). Eating just half a cup of beans a day for two months can result in a 20 point drop in serum cholesterol. Beans also help reduce blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and lower body weight. Bean consumption may also be protective against cancer (see here). Black beans appear to be slightly healthier than pinto beans and lentils (red lentils are the healthiest) come in second after black beans in terms of antioxidant content (see also here, here). Watch out though, The plastic linings in bean cans can contain BPA, though there are brands that don’t use it. Instead, I buy my beans lose then soak and cook them - cheaper and better for you.
Clean, plant based recipes for EVERYONE :) And some research thrown in for good measure.
