Bean Barley & Sausage Soup Recipe
IOWA REC NEWS, MAY 1992
1 lb kidney beans, dry
1 package smoked polish sausage,sliced
7 cup water
1 cup barley
2 garlic cloves, peeled
3 bay leaves
Put rinsed beans in large saucepan. Add water, cover and let stand
Drain off water the next day. Put beans, barley and remaining
ingredients into crockpot. Stir. Cover and cook on high for 4
hours. Remove bay leaves. Salt to taste when serving.
Sylvia's comments: I nuked the beans to fast-soak them, and it worked
great. Even the kids liked this one! I used a fine-ground wurst
instead of Polish sausage and cut it into bite-sized pieces before
cooking. I also added some powdered beef stock to the water for
cooking. Then I packed the soup into empty jars to take to work. It
reheats great! Also worked well for a quick supper for the kids.
Definitely a keeper. I might add some chopped browned onions next

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of sales blurb that claims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Many are only a little lower and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may also make them by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. Store in an airtight container.
Wonder foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, rose hip puree and winter squash)
These colorful plants contain carotenes thought by many to play a role in helping stop cancer, specifically those cancers involving the lungs and stomach. Most are also low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
