Heavenly, Home-Made Beans

Are you in the mood for natural, home-made beans?  Beans are gluten free, and are extremely easy to make.  One secret about cooking beans is that they don't have to be soaked.  You can choose to soak them, however, for shorter cooking times.   If you choose not to soak beans, they take a little bit longer to cook. We do not recommend that you soak Peruvian or Peruano beans.

I usually add onions when I first start to make them, and then remove the onions when the beans are almost done. 

If you prefer pinto beans, they are made exactly the same as Peruvian beans.  You just don't add bay leaf!

Chicken adobo recipe page

Chicken adobo is a very popular recipe in the Phillipines and on Guam.  A family that I used to live with taught me how to cook this traditional favorite, and I've been making it all my life. 
Our chicken adobo has vinegar, soy sauce, onions and pepper balls.  It has intense flavor unlike anything you've ever eaten.  If you try this one just once, you'll make it at least once a week.

Quinoa is a whole grain/seed that is very popular for gluten-free diets.  This beautiful grain comes in different colors.  It's inexpensive, and you can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  This quinoa recipe we made was so good, we couldn't stop talking about it. 

Quinoa has a very distinctive, elegant flavor.   You'll get addicted to this quickly.  It's low glycemic, gluten free, and loaded with vegetables and fiber.  The flavor reminds me of sitting back with a glass of champagne, and listening to classical music.  There's just something luxurious about it.

Succulent Soups

Chicken and Cheese Soup Recipe

This cheddar cheese soup recipe is made with rBGS free cheese and milk or soy.  It also has chicken, shredded carrots and fresh picked parsley. 

If you're on a low glycemic diet, you cannot have regular white flour.  Instead, we used chickpea flour, and it thickened the soup beautifully.  My family insists on this mouthwatering, healthy soup.  This cheddar cheese soup also reheats well, and tastes even better the next day.

Healthy Diet Recipes For the Holidays

Christmas Roast Pork Recipe

Taste this incredible Cuban style pork roast recipe.  We used this recipe for Christmas, but you can use it any time of the year.  It has a tremendous festive aroma.  You're going to need to set aside a bit of time, because we use hand-crushed garlic to make the pulp and sauce. 

Macaroni and Cheese (video)

For our gluten-intolerant visitors, you can use another type of gluten-free grain for this recipe.  We used wheat flour, and hand-made this delicious macaroni and cheese dinner for the Christmas holiday.  Macaroni has a moderate GI, and the cheese lowers it even more.  This macaroni and cheese recipe has a stunning flavor and texture.  Be sure to boil the macaroni al dente.  Over cooking macaroni will raise the glycemic index.  For our hair loss visitors, use this recipe sparingly.

None of these recipes will raise your blood sugar.  When you're done eating these healthy diet recipes, you will feel the same excitement and joy that you feel when you're eating high glycemic products.
