Baked Beans with Pine Nuts
1-2 lbs fresh green beans, washed and ends snipped (enough to feed 4 people)
3-4 Tablespoons grape seed oil
3-4 Tablespoons pine nuts
5 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Onion Salt, to taste
Seasoning Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 400F. Place beans in a single layer in large baking pan (15 x 13). Set aside.
In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add nuts and garlic then cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes until nuts are golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer nuts and garlic to a small bowl. Pour oil from skillet onto beans and toss to coat (can add a little more grape seed oil). Lightly sprinkle with onion salt and seasoning salt then toss to coat.

5 Things Apple Cider Vinegar Could Help With
If it’s not there already, apple cider vinegar deserves a home in your kitchen cupboard. It’s rich in vitamins E, A, and P and magnesium, iron, calcium — the list goes on and on. If the vitamins and minerals alone are not enough reason to have you hooked, here are five reasons you should always have apple cider vinegar on hand.
1. Support weight loss: If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, it’s time to start using apple cider vinegar. Studies have shown that vinegar may help keep you from feeling hungry by slowing stomach emptying; it also lowers the glycemic index of high-carb foods like pasta, meaning it can help you feel fuller longer by slowing the release of glucose into your bloodstream.
2. Improve digestion: The pectin in apple cider vinegar has been known to move things along when bellies get backed up. Up your fiber intake with a green salad with plenty of roughage topped off with this honey apple cider vinaigrette to improve your digestion situation.
3. Zap warts: This may come as a surprise, but soaking a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and securing it on a pesky wart with medical tape can get rid of it quickly and naturally. Keep this in mind before you immediately call your dermatologist next time!
4. Add a pep to your step: Apple cider vinegar is also credited with improving energy levels. If you’re cutting out caffeine at work, just a few tablespoons of ACV mixed with a full glass of water can keep you from feeling cloudy and get you back to work.
5. Boost immunity: When you’re adding that many healthy vitamins and minerals to your system, it’s going to help your immune system ward off illness. If you’re already sick and in need of a little help, drink hot apple cider vinegar brew that combines cayenne, lemon, and honey, which will help open up your sinuses and replenish your body with the minerals it needs to recoup.

1/4 c. dried cranberries (Craisins)

Peel carrots and apple. Remove core from apple. Shred carrots and apple into large bowl. Add lemon juice and mix to coat well. This helps the apples not turn brown.
Add other ingredients into bowl and combine well. Place in refrigerator at least 1 hour before serving. If you have longer, that is best. Helps the flavors to marry together and give a nice flavor to your salad.

“Here is my before and after pictures that I wanted to share with you. I started Skinny Fiber March of 2013. I had a lot of medical problems from Bulging disc and tear to Sciatica and the left over effects of brain surgery. I was a MESS. LOL! Since then I am off acid reflux meds, hormones therapy and a couple of others. I have lost 78 lbs and over 80 inches! I am one of those people who lost weight slow because of the lack of exercise from all the medical problems that tore me up. But when the medical problems slow down and allow me to, I GET OUT and WALK! I would give myself a “PEP” talk everyday, “YOU CAN SO DO THIS”. No matter how long it takes, I have the determination and all the support from family, friends and my mentor. Don’t give up you guys! The more out of whack your body is, the longer it may take to bring it back to right. I used to read all the wonderful testimonials and get depressed because I was not doing as well. Then that light turned on and said ” Look you know your medical problems and you know you had lost 100 lbs before everything went to Hell!” So stop beating yourself up and take one day at a time and YOU WILL SUCCEED!!!! i am SkinnyFiber4Life”
