Chickpea and Quinoa Salad with Blueberry and Turmeric


Dr Joel Fuhrman, M.D. on his latest book The End of Dieting, beans act as anti-diabetes and weight loss foods because the body digests them slowly, which stabilizes blood sugar levels, reducing hunger and caloric drive and helping to prevent food cravings. Beans are unique foods because of their very high levels of fiber and resistant starch-that is, carbohydrates that aren’t broken down by digestive enzymes. the fiber and resistant starch in beans reduce Beans also have considerable anticancer effects. The resistant starches in beans are converted by healthy gut bacteria into fatty acids that help to prevent colon cancer. Eating beans, peas, or lentils more than twice a week has been found to decrease colon cancer risk by 50 percent. Beans not only protect the colon against cancer, but a high bean intake is also associated with decreased risk of esophageal, stomach , kidney, and breast cancers. Plus, a recent analysis of ten scientific studies has shown that the higher your fiber intake, the lower your risk of breast cancer.
I hope from this information everybody can use their mind to create any dish you want using different kind of beans.I use beans on salad, soup, entree, omelette even on dessert when i make crapes or pancakes in the morning.
I made a recipe using chickpea, turmeric, greens, mixed quinoa, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, celery, carrot, blueberry, turmeric, olive oil, fresh mint.
