This nutritious meal is delicious, simple to prepare and good for the heart and the waist. Plus, what a great way to get some healthy, omega-3 fats!
Nu-Train comments: Though in an ideal world we would all eat balanced meals and snacks with whole grains, lean protein, and lots of fruits and vegetables, realistically it is often too time consuming and impractical. However, we can’t just starve until we have time to grab a decent meal. That’s where bars come in. Bars are quick, and if you choose the “right” ones, they can be balanced and filling. Here is a great homemade bar recipe from Nu-Train.
SonomaDiet.com comments: The pungent flavors of the Mediterranean region are everywhere in North American cuisine, from the gourmet Italian restaurant in your town to the grocery store whose shelves are stocked with wonderful spices and seasonings. You don't have to look far — or spend any extra hours in the kitchen — to add these flavors to your own meals. Try the following seasonings in your salads, wraps, and grain dishes and add a little bit of Italy, Greece, Turkey, or Morocco to your day.
Flank steak is prefect for grilling. It has a full, rich flavor, yet it's thin enough to grill in a flash. Here, we serve it as they do in Northern Italy, slathered with a garlic rub, grilled, then sliced and served over peppery arugula greens.
This sensational soup is stocked with hearty vegetables and zesty spices. Try it for lunch and sail through your usual midday slump!
