Healthy whole-grain recipes to help you lose weight.EatingWell2
Carbs have gotten a bad rap as a diet no-no, but whole grains are an essential part of a healthy diet. These low-calorie recipes feature healthy carbs, such as whole-wheat pasta, quinoa, barley, bulgur, wheat berries and popcorn, and can even help you lose weight. Lighten up your carb cravings with these healthy low-calorie whole-grain recipes.

Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili
This rib-sticking chili offers a hearty mix of wheat berries, beans, peppers and onion. Feel free to add an additional chipotle pepper to crank up the heat in this one-pot meal.

Lemony Asparagus Pasta
Penne and asparagus are bathed in a rich sauce with a slight bite of mustard, lemon and Parmesan. This dish is lovely in early spring, when asparagus is at its peak and nights are still cool enough to inspire a craving for something rich and warm…..

An easily prepared and Diabetic Friendly recipe. It’s from the CooksRecipes website. Cucumbers, Onions, and Spices make up this recipe. Check out the CooksRecipes website for any of the recipes you are looking for. http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Bread and Butter PicklesCooksrecipes 2

These crisp, sweet pickles are a welcome accompaniment to sandwiches and salads. When you’ve eaten the pickles, use the pickling liquid to add zing to dressing for potato or pasta salad.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 pounds (4 to 5-inch) cucumbers, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons kosher salt
2 1/2 cups white vinegar
1 1/4 cups Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 tablespoon whole mustard seeds
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves



Cooking Directions:

Place cucumbers and onions in a large non-reactive bowl. Sprinkle with the salt and toss to combine. Let stand at room temperature 2 hours. Drain the vegetables, rinse and drain again. Blot dry using paper towels.
Wash jars and lids in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Fill boiling-water canner half full with water; add jars and water to cover. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Place lids in water to cover in a small saucepan; bring water to a simmer. Simmer until ready to use. Remove and drain jars and lids, one at a time, as needed for filling.
Bring vinegar, Splenda® Granulated Sweetener, mustard seeds, celery seeds, turmeric, and cloves to a boil over medium-high heat in a large Dutch oven. Add the cucumbers and onions and return to a boil.
Pack hot vegetables immediately into prepared jars using a slotted spoon, filling to within 1/4-inch of tops. Ladle pickling liquid into jars, filling to within 1/4-inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on rack in canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil.
Process 15 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing center of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.) Store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year. Once opened, store refrigerated.
Makes 24 servings.
