In my search for juicers I found a website called Hallelujah Acres.  I have to admit I like the name!  There isn’t a lot of health websites that put God first, but when I find one I cherish it.  So I signed up for their email updates and am just thrilled with them so far.  Today I have been looking around their recipe section, temptation much? LOL  They follow the same principles as Fat Sick & Nearly Dead (a mainly plant-based diet) for health and vitality.

I can see this will be a wonderful resource for continuing to eat vegetables and plant-based foods.  They also have a ton of raw recipes, including some soups and some sandwiches.  There is a salad wrap on there I could eat right now! LOL Of course I could eat all of it right now. 😉  Wanted to share, bookmark their page and subscribe to their newsletter.  LOVE this website!


The featured recipe today is called (click this link to see the photo! mouth-watering!)  Black Bean Burgers by Connie:

This recipe comes from Connie Maginnis, who writes, “When we go to cookouts with people on the Standard American Diet, we bring these Black Bean Burgers to grill. Their acceptance is amazing and I have to bring enough for everyone because all the other people want ours!”


1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small onion (coarsely chopped)
1 medium red pepper (chopped)
4 medium cloves of garlic (minced)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 1/2 cups cooked or canned organic black beans (drained)
1 cup cooked brown basmati rice
2 cups fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
Hot pepper sauce to taste (optional)
Also optional is adding 1 tablespoon of Ketchup (from Rhonda’s Recipe book)
1 1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt


Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic. Cook while stirring frequently until soft and onions are translucent. Stir in cumin, turmeric, and cook for an additional minute. In a food processor, combine beans, rice and onion/pepper/garlic mixture. Transfer to a large bowl. Add breadcrumbs and mix well. Season with salt and hot pepper if desired. Flatten 1/4 cup amounts of mix into patties and they are ready for the outdoor grill. Cook about 3-5 minutes each side. Makes 8 burgers.
