Popeye had it right- spinach is a muscle builder and is a rich source of plant-based omega-3s and folate, which help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and osteoporosis. Bonus: Folate also increases blood flow to the nether regions ;D…
Here’s a recipe that includes lots of “good for you” ingredients. The only question mark being the tortilla. If you go to a health food store, you can find some tortillas made from grains other than wheat that would be better. All in all, a great choice for a good tasting and good for you breakfast (or any other meal).
I learned more in 5 minutes watching this video than I ever thought possible. There are lots of foods on the “good for you” list that I absolutely love. I wouldn’t diet if it meant that I had to eat dull bland food for every meal.

I had french fries yesterday. I cook every night, and I don’t cook with any type of butter, butter substitute, or oil.
I took the old man to Cinebistro (he’s never been) yesterday and I got a grilled lime chicken sandwich thing. Healthiest thing I could get outside of a salad. It came with fries….
Great testimonial to good eating habits, although I’ll never give up butter. I cut out all other cooking oils, but your body needs a certain amount of fat for a healthy metabolism. Between the butter and natural peanut butter, I get what I need.
Peas and Carrots Alphabets Soup (I’m going to make it)
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 carrots, diced
1 cup alphabet pasta
2 cups frozen peas
How to make it:
Place the broth in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, pasta, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Simmer until the carrots and pasta are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the peas and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Calories : 213 cal.
I really love simple recipe because I’m not very good at cooking :P
This looks good. I wonder if it’s possible to find alphabet pasta in a gluten free variety….maybe quinoa? I ate some spaghetti noodles made from quinoa that tasted almost like the regular wheat variety. They are so much better for you.
Also, I’ve been using sea salt instead of regular salt. It’s supposed to be less toxic to your body.
