Begin with some recipe development of your own. I love to experiment with some different kinds of meals that include healthy grains such as rice, quinoa or even some legumes such as lentils and split peas.

parsnips and carrotsTrying something new is a great thing- this week add parsnips to your veggies mix!

 

I recently started using parsnips in my recipes because I tried them and really enjoy eating them. They look like carrots except they are white.

An easy recipe that I made in a frying pan. I just peeled and chopped 2 carrots, 2 parsnips and 1 potato ( left over cooked the day before). I also chopped a tomato and a slice of pineapple, and added a cup of frozen peas.

You can make a great soup that is easy to make on those cold winter days.

I start with a small can of V-8 juice ( 4 0z) and add 2 cups of water to the juice. I use the low sodium kind. If you like thicker soup, you can teaspoon of flour which you have blended first with 1/2 cup of water.
