|Your refrigerator - How long is food safe? |
|Food safety experts recommend that you eventually discard opened containers of food, even if stored in the refrigerator. For example: discard juice in 7-10 days, olives in 2 weeks, salsa in 1 month, mayo in 2 months, and ketchup, jam and jelly after 6 months. Even in the refrigerator, bacteria can grow and multiply. Play it safe. Regularly clean out your refrigerator. Keep the thermostat set at 40 degrees or below.|

|Vegetarian Lentil Stew|
|Category: Vegetarian Entrees|
Description: The Health Benefits of lentils are that they are very rich in protein (about 26%), folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Lentils are also very high in Vitamin C and the B vitamins, and contain eight of the essential amino acids. They also contain many trace minerals. Lentils are one of the highest sources of antioxidants found in winter growing legumes.
The soluble fiber in lentils also helps eliminate cholesterol, since it binds to it, reducing blood cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to prove that lentils can slow the liver's manufacture of cholesterol, which similarly helps to reduce levels in the body.
Lentils for Weight Loss
Because insoluble fiber is indigestible and passes through the body virtually intact, it provides few calories. And since the digestive tract can handle only so much bulk at a time, fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods, so people tend to eat less.
