Diets. Meal plans. Counting calories. Counting carbs. All protein. Zero fat. Low fat. Weight loss, weight gain, weight loss.
There are so many options in the quest to live a more healthy life and to see lower numbers on the scale and on the tags of your clothing.
My husband and I have started the ChangeOne plan.
Not a 'diet' or a pre packaged meal plan. No counting calories or carbs. We aren't living on lettuce wrapped burgers or tofu. We're simply eating well - properly portioned meals that include a vast array of vegetables and fruits.
Like this stew.
Kitchen Sink Stew
1 - 28 ounce can tomatoes
1 - 20 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup dry pasta
1 tsp dried Italian herb mix
freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups water, plus more as needed
Combine all ingredients and heat to a boil over medium high. Simmer till pasta is cooked. Serve with multi grain roll or a slice of garlic toast.
Makes 4 two cup servings.
