My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, happy, sexy, fit and slim...all the good stuff.

My Program:
I was a vegetarian for more than 34 years, but in July 2009 I started eating a low fat, no junk vegan diet. This is probably the best thing I ever did to improve my health and I lost my excess weight. Guess you could say I'm full of beans now ... so here's a tip on how to cook beans from scratch so that they won't cause excess gas. Start with dry beans, rinse and soak them overnight using a pinch of baking soda per quart (or liter) of water. Drain and rinse the beans and add fresh water before cooking. If you see foam forming as the beans cook, scrape it off and toss it. If you still have a problem with gas, change the water again after the beans have been cooking for a few minutes. Cook the beans until they are tender. Keep in mind if you are just beginning to incorporate beans into your regular diet, your body needs a little time to adjust... you won't be an old gasbag forever.

I see no place on the team for challenges. I would like to post a couple of challenges but nothing seems appropriate.

I'm sorry, I withdrew from the team as I guess I was reported for posting a devotional. I think we should care for body, soul and spirit which are the temple of God.
I had bragged so much on you and how you were doing all you could to help me.

I cut my kale stems into one inch pieces before freezing them. When I run low on greens I might eat a big plate of a dish I call "Stems": steamed, then sautéed in ginger and garlic, kale and collard stems. Sometimes I add a handful of stems to a green smoothie. When I had the use of a food processor, I pulverized them and used the green powdery mash in homemade protein bars. It was an interesting flavor, not unfamiliar but a little misplaced. What do you think you might do with your stems?
