Delicious and Nutritious

As always, I look for new, fun ways to improve our health habits.  I recently discovered:

http://www.amazon.com/Eat-Live-Amazing-Nutrient-Rich-Sustained-ebook/dp/B0047Y175M/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1410195618&sr=1-3&keywords=dr.+joel+fuhrman

This is not a brand-new book, but it is, nevertheless, very helpful and informative.  With the basic principles in mind, I created a yummy lunch  It contained a little olive oil, baby kale, some red kidney beans, chopped onion(dried), zucchini(I have to use that up!), walnuts, shitake mushrooms, and sunflower nuts:

Here it is after cooking briefly:

I have to say, it was delicious.  I plan on using food combinations like this as often as possible.  They are nutrient-dense foods, which are low in calories, so they pack a powerful punch when it comes to healthy eating.

In the meantime, I am drying seeds to save for next year’s garden planting:

If it is hard to see, due to my “expert” photography skills, I have French Breakfast Radish, Purple String Beans, and Painted Lady and/or Scarlett Runner Beans.  The Scarlett Runner Beans have all red flowers, but the Painted Ladies have red and white flowers.  I think they make beautiful plants as well as yummy food!

It never ceases to amaze me how such a big, beautiful plant can come from a tiny seed!  Every year I marvel in wonder…..

Enjoy making healthy food to nourish you, give you strength, and help you feel happy!
