legumes have healing ingredients too...
« on: January 17, 2014, 07:16:11 AM »
Yowbarb Note: I stumbled across this info, then promptly lost the page.
This snippet of an article presents info about how legumes are healing foods.
The sources quoted are Heal Thyself also the Dr. Oz show.
I will post more info soon.
...


".... My friend, Pat, from Heal Thyself, suggests a cup of beans or lentils per day for folate and molybdenum.  The Dr. Oz Show says, “Beans are high in antioxidants, fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and zinc. Eating beans regularly may decrease the risk of diabetes, heart disease, colorectal cancer, and helps with weight management.”

Okey dokey. I found the article. In my email.  :)  Common Sense Home site. It will take awhile but I will post many of these recipes. (A real variety.) These will be in the next few posts.
These look like good survival recipes. Some use dark greens which are so nourishing.

Bean and Lentil Recipes – More than 66 Recipes from Soups to Dessert - 2014-01-16 23:10:18-05



Quote
Bean and lentil recipes can be a frugal and nourishing addition to just about any menu – but – believe it or not – I’ve only cooked about a handful of different bean recipes.  My mom rarely used them, so I never picked up the habit.  My friend, Pat, from Heal Thyself, suggests a cup of beans or lentils per day for folate and molybdenum.  The Dr. Oz Show says, “Beans are high in antioxidants, fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper and zinc. Eating beans regularly may decrease the risk of diabetes, heart disease, colorectal cancer, and helps with weight management.”
New year = time to introduce new habits, so I turned to my blogging friends for more ideas and inspiration in the kitchen.  They pitched in and provided me with this list of beautiful and interesting bean recipes, from snacks and appetizers to entrees and side dishes to dessert.  I had no idea beans could be so versatile.  I hope you’ll join me in trying something new.  Huge thanks to all my blogging friends who contributed recipes and photos for the photo collages

Dried Beans are so easy to get and store also.  ;)

bk, that's what I was thinking. It'd be a shame to not stock up....
