Nuts help us melt body fat because they optimize hormone production, such as, testosterone and growth hormone. Research has shown that these healthy fats keep us feeling full for longer periods of time. Our hunger is satisfied throughout the entire day. Consuming slow digesting foods, such as nuts, helps us sustain high energy levels all day long.
I love old fashioned Mennonite cabbage borscht. Rich beef broth, cabbage, spuds, tomatoes and alot of seasonings. Warms your soul and ur belly. Keeps you full w/o aa tonof calories!!

I start by boiling dry soup mix that contains barley, rice, lentils, split peas and beans in 12 cups of water with a soup bone for 1 hour or so. Then I add cubbed carrots and turnips. Simmer for another 30 minutes. Then I add 1 cubed potato, leaks, rapini, and some Orzo pasta. Simmer for another 30 minutes,,, You can add 1 small can of V8 for taste. VOILA!

I absolutely love soups. This is the perfect time of the year for it. I have made pea soup, lima bean soup, minestroni, chili, pumpkin soups. I was vegetarian for 2.5 years so most of my protein was coming from beans. I love to cook and follow your posts regularly. I hope to publish a cookbook soon.
