New Year New Resolutions - What We Eat

Part of being healthy is eating closer to the source, that lets you benefit from the rich nutritional value of the freshest locally grown ingredients.

I am from the island of Jamaica so most of our food are locally grown and is in our kitchen within days.

Most noted is legumes. Legumes/Beans/Peas offer a ton of health benefits and so beans in our kitchen did not last a year. Within a few weeks of puchase that package of peas would be full of insects, so we did not develop a gassy stomach from eating peas and did'nt need to buy Beano Tablets, 30-Count.

But I am going to tell you how to eat legumes without the gassy embarrassment.

Start by soaking legumes, rinsing away the foam that develops from soaking and then place in a pot with water bring to boil and rinse again. You can even add sea vegetable when cooking to decrease gassing.

Heart Healthy Recipe

Roasted Beets

To retain the nutrients of beets you should not boil them but roast them. Roasting keeps in all the flavor and sweetness of beets.

Lets get started.

  • Wash the beets well.

  • Use beets of similar sizes because different size beets will cook at different rates.

  • Trim the roots and stems without piercing the skin - tears allow color and nutrients to escape.

  • Place the beets on a sheet of aluminum foil, fold into an airtight packet, and place on a cookie sheet.

  • Bake until tender, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Cool, remove skin, and cut into cubes. Cover and chill until ready to prepare salad.

Now prepare and serve this heart healthy Roasted Beets and Arugula Salad.
