People ask me, “How can I take a first step to better health?” Today’s recipe is an answer. It’s all about a one dish meal made of High Nutrient Dense Whole Foods. And it tastes amazing. Not only does it taste great, it makes at least 2 meals for 2 people. I love that.
High Nutrient Dense Foods give the body what it needs to regenerate health and help flush out toxins. This dish fits the bill.
Our video explains some of the benefits of this meal and also how we can make lasting changes in our diet and lifestyle for better health without using will-power or control:
Enjoy this recipe. And, what we do to change it up the second day so it’s a new taste is add another ingredient. With this soup we added a hot sauce made by a farmer friend who grows hot peppers. Other times we’ll add frozen corn or peas. Or maybe throw in some cumin seeds. Something this simple can transform it into a whole new dish. And I spend less than a minute to make it happen. How’s that for healthy “fast food”?
