Description:
So, now for the “piece de resistance”… a delicious wintertime raw recipe guaranteed to keep your body furnace stoked. Note the liberal use of heating herbs!
Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.







Ingredients:
1 – cup kidney beans

2 ¼ - cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¼ - cup soaked sun dried tomatoes
2/3 – cup chopped celery
½ - cup chopped sweet onion
1 – cup chopped green pepper
1 – slice jalapeno
1 – cup cilantro
¾ - tsp sea salt
2 – tsp. chili powder
1 – tsp paprika
1/8 – tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ - tsp coriander
1 tbls. – honey

2 cups finely chopped zucchini



Directions:
1 – cup kidney beans (sprouted)…
soak 1 cup kidney beans in water overnight, drain & rinse. Continue to drain and rinse 2 x’s a day for 2-3 days until little tails start to show. You can either add the sprouted beans directly to the following base recipe or cheat a bit and slow cook your sprouted beans at the lowest temperature of your crock pot until tender. Either way,a sprouted bean has much more nutrition in it than a dry bean. Once a bean is sprouted it becomes living and growing and is no longer in its dormant state.


Vegetable Chili Base…

Blend all the above ingredients for the base, including the soaking water for the sun dried tomatoes, in your food processor or blender and puree.

Combine puree with your sprouted beans and add approximately 2 cups finely chopped zucchini, and ¼ cup finely chopped sweet onion for some added crunch and chunkiness. If you want extra extra chunky chili, don’t process the Vegetable Chili Base, just use as is.



Notes: You simply can’t have only one serving of this…it’s too good!

Wellness Tip
VEGETARIAN DIETS AND IRON
Are you a vegetarian or mostly a vegetarian? Our registered dietitian recommends consuming plenty of iron-rich plant foods such as lentils, kidney beans, black beans, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruit and whole grains. Iron-enriched products such as cereals and breads are also good sources. To enhance iron absorption, consume vitamin C-rich foods at the same time you eat iron-containing foods. These include strawberries, green peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and citrus fruits. By following these simple guidelines, most non-meat eaters will get enough iron.

Recipe
Cous Cous Salad with Tomatoes and Beans
Category: Salads
Description: Cous Cous - So good they had to name it twice. Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose. Due to its quick preparation and health benefits, the popularity of this dish is quickly growing in other parts of the world as well. Including couscous in your diet provides several health benefits. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 43 mcg of selenium, or 61% of the 70 mcg daily value. This is a trace mineral that the body needs in small quantities, acting as an antioxidant and protecting healthy cells from the mutating effects of toxins that change the DNA and structural composition, leading to disease and premature aging.
The potassium in couscous provides important functions, such as regulating blood pressure and the heartbeat. Potassium helps control fluid balance, an important factor in blood pressure regulation. It also assists with muscle contractions, and because the heart is a muscle, it requires potassium to prevent arrythmias, or irregularities of the heartbeat. A 1 cup serving of couscous provides 91mg of potassium, or 39% of the 3,500 mg the FDA recommends to get daily.
