I started using some of the recipes right away. All beans, chickpeas, lentils are ok. Also all rice is ok except white. I buy all my stuff from a farmers type market where they have bins full of all kinds of combos. Also when the cycle lists having something like a combo of rice ,beans and veggies I combine the three and make a slow cooked soup using beef broth. Tonight I made a combo soup with lentils, country rice, fresh mushrooms, onions, zucchini and fresh carrots. It turned out great!
Life is what you make it
