  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Wash the beans and soak over night. Fill a large pan with water and add the beans. Boil for about 90 minutes and when the beans are almost done add the cassava chunks. Allow to boil for a further 10 minutes until the cassava softens.

Meanwhile, fry the onion in the oil until golden, add the celery and allow to soften.Drain the cassava and bean mixture and place in the pan along with the onion and celery.

    I like to strawberries, raspberries and other fruit in a cup of orange juice, but i don’t think that’s considered weird. And sometimes eat peanut butter and celery sticks, but i guess that’s no longer weird anymore, because it’s becoming popular. I need ideas for a project; so hit me with you’re weirdest cravings! Please and thank you :)

    I am dieting by eating small healthy meals at 9, 12, 3 and 6 and 9 ill have some celery sticks. But even with a some exercise ( walking dog, occasional jogging, sit up, push ups and resistant band) its taking awhile, I was wondering if there was a pill that was out there which is healthy so not to give me cancer 😀 but effective. Thanks
