Navy Bean Soup

ingrédients :
16 ounces Navy Beans sorted, rinsed and soaked
1 pound Smoked Ham Shank rinsed and patted dry
3 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion finely diced
2 Carrots diced
2 Celery Ribs diced
3-4 Garlic Cloves minced
1 tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Spanish Paprika
Black Pepper to taste
4 cups Chicken Broth
4 cups Water
1 Bay Leaf
Salt to taste
méthode :
Pick through the beans to remove any foreign objects (like small stones). Don’t skip this step, I’ve found stones in dry beans on more than one occasion. Add the beans to a colander and rinse them well with cold water and drain.
Soak the beans – use the overnight or the quick soak method.
Overnight method: Add the beans to a pot. Cover the beans with 4-6 cups of water. Let the beans soak overnight. Drain the water completely and rinse the beans well with fresh, cold water.
Quick soaking method: Add the beans and 6-8 cups of water to a large pot. Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring the water to a boil. Boil the beans for 2 minutes, then remove them from the heat, cover and allow them to soak for one hour. Drain and rinse the beans. I use the quick soak method and it has worked well so far.
Prepare the smoked ham shank
Rinse the ham with cold water, pat dry.
Make the navy bean soup
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; add the onions, carrots and celery to the pot. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the garlic, tomato paste, oregano, paprika and black pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the smoked ham shank, navy beans, chicken broth, water, and the bay leaf to the pot and stir. Raise heat to high, bring the liquid to a boil, lower heat to medium-low, cover and cook 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove the smoked ham shank from the pot and place on a cutting board. Cover the soup and continue cooking. When the smoked ham shank is cool enough to handle, remove the meat from the bones. Discard the bones and any fatty pieces. Chop the meat and return it to the pot.
Continue cooking the navy bean soup for another 15 minutes. Taste a couple of beans; if they’re tender, the soup is done. If the beans are still a little firm, cover and continue cooking. Check the beans every 15 minutes or so, until they reach the desired consistency.
Taste the navy bean soup and add salt if needed. As a reference, we added ¾ teaspoon to our soup.
Remove the bay leaf and discard.
Enjoy !

10 Golden Rules for Healthy Eating and Activity
1. Start the Day with Breakfast
Starting the day with a good breakfast after a long sleep period gives our body the energy it needs throughout the day. A toast made of whole wheat flour, yogurt-fruit, muesli, oatmeal with milk or recommended by your dietitian is a good breakfast menu.

2. Increase Your Movement
30 minutes between your daily physical activities. Making time for exercise is not difficult at all. 10 minutes every hour while watching TV or doing your homework. You can separate and exercise. Instead of using a minibus or taxi to see your friend, you can complete a certain distance by walking, cycling or running. You can take the stairs instead of using the elevator.

3. Don’t Skip Meals
Snack is one of the meals that should not be skipped in order to maintain blood sugar balance and increase the metabolic rate. You can choose different foods from different food groups. A glass of semi-skimmed milk and a couple of crackers, an apple, oatmeal, or a yoghurt with a small fruit would be a healthy choice.

4. Balance Your Food Choices
If you can’t give up on hamburgers, french fries and ice cream, check how often you eat these foods. Because your body also needs to get protein, carbohydrate, fat and various vitamins and minerals from various foods such as Vitamin A-C, iron and calcium.

5. Spend Time With Your Friends and Family
Group activities with friends or family can be a lot of fun. Encourage your friends to do group exercise with you on the weekend. These can be activities such as cycling, basketball, walking together, volleyball.

6. Eat More Whole Foods, Fruits and Vegetables
While these foods give you energy, they also contain vitamins, minerals and fiber. Prefer whole wheat flour bread to white bread. Pasta belongs to the whole wheat rice grain group.

7. Participate in Physical Activities at School or Around You
Participate in physical activities practiced at school, at work, and in your community. Folklore can be group activities. These exercises increase both your school success and business success and make your body look better.

8. Foods Aren’t Good or Bad.
Organizing healthy eating is like playing a puzzle. Each food has different characteristics. Some foods may contain more fat, sugar or salt. Some do not have vitamins or fiber. It’s how you choose these foods that makes a diet good or bad. The balance in selection is very important.
For example; You can take care of consuming a menu of fatty foods at lunch and pass other meals lighter. However, be sure to stay within the recommended amount. If two slices of pizza are recommended, avoid the third slice.

9. Make Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Fun
You can make it an adventure by choosing healthy foods and doing physical activities that are right for you.

You can try new physical activities as well as new foods. Believe me, you will realize that you are stronger, you look better and you feel better. Have good goals in your life and never give up on them.

10. Pay Attention to Sleep Times
In order for the hormones to work correctly in your body, it is necessary to pay attention to the sleep hours. Sleep is one of the most important functions of human life. Good sleep improves one’s quality of life during the day. We should get up at 07:00 at the earliest and go to bed at 23:30 at the latest. If we wake up late, our digestive system will not work well and we will feel bad because the hormones of depression kick in.
