Mung Bean Souper night, pure nutrition

Feeling draggy, back to nutrition is me.

If you have a pressure cooker, toss a cup of beans (rinsed, picked) in with 3 C water and 1 chicken boullion cube. I love mung beans for the high nutrients but any bean will do.

If not, rinse, soak overnight, then slow boil until tender/done.

When the beans are done, about half an hour plus/minus in the pressure cooker, turn it off and let it cool until you can safely take the top off.

As the beans cook wash/chop 1/2 head of broccoli, 1/2 head of cauliflower a BIG carrot or two, onion, a whole one, and anything else you like. Kale, tomato, beans, corn, squash.

Throw that in, pressure cook for about another 10 - 15 minutes. Serve.

Without a pressure cooker, 20 - 30 minutes, just enough to cook the veg.

This is power soup. If you go to Eat For Life, (there are many sites) that will give you the scoop on eating extremely healthy. Nothing processed, no salt or sugar, dairy or meat. You won't be hungry. Promise.

If you have to have meat, every tenth meal can be a meat meal. Everyone tells me I look bright when I strictly adhere to this. You eat 4 fruit a day, a few nuts and eat a  pound of raw veg and can have a lot of cooked veg. You can eat corn on the cob and at least a cup of beans/legumes a day. So the hummus is encouraged. Wahoo! Salad can be the main part of the meal but doesn't have to be. Flexible and cheap to eat this way.

Dr. Fuhrman is the man. Find him, follow him. You look and feel better overnight. No guff. And he has recipes. I'm a hummus hag, allowed, almost as much as you want. When I adhere everyone says I look younger. Skin glows or something.
