Happy Friday beauties! Today marks our first weekly “Fast Food Friday” post where we learn to toss together a healthy, delicious lunch or dinner in around 15 minutes. Really! (Some of them may take a little longer but not by much if I have anything to say about it.)
“Why am I choosing Fridays to unveil recipes that are quick, easy and healthy?” you may ask. The reasons are two fold. First, most of my clients are tired at the end of a long week and this is the night that most families are more tempted to drive through Jack in the Box. Second, it is also the slowest day in the blogosphere for traffic; which tells me that nobody wants to sit still long enough to read a long drawn out post on the importance of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Am I wrong?
So here we are. I am going to give you your fast food fix, maybe not in the way you expect it, and hopefully you will resist the urge to call Domino’s when you taste the cacophony of flavors that will tickle your family’s taste buds and leave you asking for more!
On a side note, for anyone thinking about seeing a holistic nutritionist and health coach I have a great giveaway going on at The NY Melrose Family blog that gives you three sessions (including a detailed health history to see where we need to improve) of health coaching with me plus a special surprise of a $50 gift card for non-toxic, natural and organic beauty from The Nature of Beauty. Click on over and see how to win!
Also called garbanzo beans, these have long been valued for their fiber content. Two cups provide the entire Daily Value. But the research news on garbanzos and fiber has recently taken us one step further by suggesting that the fiber benefits of garbanzo beans may go beyond the fiber benefits of other foods. In a recent study, two groups of participants received about 28 grams of fiber per day. But the two groups were very different in terms of their food sources for fiber. One group received dietary fiber primarily from garbanzo beans. The other group obtained dietary fiber from entirely different sources. The garbanzo bean group had better blood fat regulation, including lower levels of LDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.
