Did you know that you can actually eat MORE food and lose weight?
Perhaps that doesn’t sound quite right to you, since you’ve heard over and over again that you have to limit your calories if you want to lose weight and reach your health goals. But consider this one question: Has focusing on limiting calories ever brought you the long term success you deserve?
The thing you must remember is that limiting calories really has nothing to do with getting proper nutrients to your cells in order for them to function at their full potential.
Imagine how surprised you would be if you were actually eating more and the pounds were not only coming off, but you were also truly enjoying your food and feeling better with each passing day.
Get this….. even if you change nothing else and start doing just this one simple thing we’re about to share with you, you will most likely still lose weight!
It has been scientifically studied and shown to be true that increasing calories by adding certain foods can actually improve your health!
The group that ate MORE food by adding 5 cups of legumes per week to their diet lost weight, had improved blood sugar regulation, and decreased their cholesterol! They improved their health and weight by eating more!
Cooking homemade beans is super simple and eating them is a great way to boost your health and to lose weight. The flavor is so incredible, you will never want to eat canned beans again! 😉
Simply rinse your beans well and remove any rocks or discolored beans
Cover the beans with filtered water (water level should be at least 5 inches about the level of the beans) and soak them in the water overnight for the greatest health benefit.
In the morning, completely drain the water from the beans, transfer beans to your cooking pot, and add fresh filtered water to cover them. (The water should be about 2 inches above the beans.)
Add 1 large onion cut into halves, fresh garlic, and freshly ground black pepper.
Add 1-2 bay leaves (optional)
Add 1/2 teaspoon Smokey Paprika if you enjoy a bit of a “meaty” flavor in your beans.
Then simply cover and keep the beans at a low boil (gentle simmer) until they are tender.
Once the beans are done, add Himalayan Pink Salt and more fresh black pepper to taste. (If you add salt before cooking you may end up with beans that are a bit too firm, so it’s best to wait until they are done to add it.)
1 pound of dried beans = about 5 cups of cooked beans.
That’s it! Easy Peasy!
