Vegetarian Lentil Stew 

Print Friendly 

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.


Ingredients:
2 tbsp butter
3 small red potatoes, chopped
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 carrot
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups soaked lentils
½ cup peas
½ cup corn
3 cloves garlic
½ tsp cumin
Black pepper to taste



Directions:
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium low heat. Add the veggies as you chop them, stirring occasionally. Add the broth and the lentils, and bring to a boil. Add peas, corn, and spices and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Celtic Healings Intuitive Readings with Maria O'Farrell Carr


Wellness Tip
Flax seed oil
One of the richest sources of Omega-3 EFAs in the plant kingdom, more than half the fat in flax seeds is alphalinolenic fatty acid (ALA), the essential Omega-3 fatty acid. Scientific studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for proper infant growth and development, reduction of cholesterol, brain and skin health, and protection against coronary heart disease, hypertension, stroke, auto-immune and inflammatory and disorders and cancer.

Barley Salad with Fresh Vegetables
Category: Salads
Description: This summer salad combines barley, a great-tasting grain, with fresh vegetables. Flavored with mint, parsley, garlic and lemon, it might remind you of tabbouleh, a Middle Eastern dish traditionally made with bulghur wheat. Barley has a wonderful texture, and parsley has carminative (intestinal gas-relieving) and diuretic properties, making it an excellent tonic ingredient. Look for the flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, which has a more pronounced flavor than the curly-leaf variety. This dish makes a healthy alternative to the usual picnic or potluck potato salad. Try it as a light meal all on its own, or as a wonderful accompaniment to other dishes.
