I'm trying to be healthy...this is apparently harder than you'd think. According to Dr. Raby at the Raby Institute for Integrated Health, this involves "avoiding inflammatory" foods:
- dairy from cows
- caffeine (drink green tea instead)
- peanut products
On tonight's menu was a vegetable soup made from the chicken stock in the last post's recipe. I added all the veggies that only had a day left in them: asparagus, celery, carrots, beans (dry pinto beans that I boiled for two minutes and then soaked with a lid for one hour per package directions), salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and water to make a decent amount of soup. I then topped with roughly chopped, fresh cilantro, scallions and finely shredded Manchego cheese, made from sheep's milk. For a side, I had a small bowl of Jiminy chips - sweet potato variety.
It was healthy, easy-to-make and delicious!
