Description:
This is a great Weight Loss Recipe
Superb way to strengthen kidneys and adrenals. Helping to cope with anxiety better.
Health Benefits of Squash are a very good source of vitamins B1 and C, folic acid, pantothenic acid, fiber, and potassium. Squash is also a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin. Choose a squash that is in season.

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.


Ingredients:
1 cup Lentils
2 onions
1 small red onion
4 Carrots
2 diced cloves of garlic
2 cups diced squash
1 sweet potatoe
1 stalk celery
1 veggie bouillon cube
1 teaspoon wheat free tamari sauce
watercress or a dark green leafy vegetable such as kale
2 bay leaves


Directions:
Soak lentils for 20 minutes
Wash lentils thoroughly
Place the onions and garlic in a pot with a vegetable seasoning cube, cover with water and bring to the boil.
Simmer. Cover stew for 30- 35 minutes.
15 minutes into the simmer, add squash and sweet potatoes
A further 10 minutes in, add carrots and celery.
Towards the end, add watercress or a dark green leafy vegetable such as kale.
Season with 2 bay leaves
Add 1 teaspoon wheat free tamari sauce.

Wellness Tip
Fast Food
Did you know that a plain fast food hamburger may be a better nutritional bet than a chicken sandwich? One plain patty, with bun but no cheese, provides about 260 calories and 9 grams of fat. A fried chicken sandwich has almost 500 calories and 23 grams of fat! When dining out, consider opting for plain items, such as burgers. Hold the cheese and sauces, or opt for grilled (not fried) chicken sandwiches with mustard instead of a rich sauce or mayo.

Recipe
Healthy Condiments
Category: Dressings
Description: You can help to spice up your food and make the whole diet process much easier by learning how to make some great tasting, low calorie and fat condiments.
You can also look into the various store bought condiments and sauces as well because more and more are being introduced into the market. Be sure to pay attention to the reduced sugar varieties also as while a condiment may be low in fat to begin with, if it's loaded with sugar it isn't really going to be a whole lot better for your diet anyway.

Here are some recipes you can try to get started. Note that due to the reduced fat content, they may be on the thinner side so you will therefore require less of them to flavour your food.
