One of my favorite ways to use my cooking talents is to cook for my friends. I love sharing healthy dishes to inspire them to eat more balanced meals. Eating less meat has helped drastically with inflammation and digestion. For my friends, I prepared a fresh veggie and lentil stew. It has all fresh, veggies straight like swiss chard, arugula, fennel, and cabbage, and peppers. Mix in some spices and some veggie broth, and you have yourself a delicious, easy, healthy lentil stew.
If you are a meat and potatoes lover, this recipe is definitely for you.
I grew up eating some type of meat and potatoes dish all the time.
Whether it was a burger and fries, meatloaf and mashed potatoes, or whatever, it was always on my plate in some form.
A lot of times, when you think of meat and potatoes, it can be quite a heavy dish without a lot of nutrition.
Sure, you get protein and starchy carbs, but a lot of times, there is no source of vegetables.
When you make a stew, it is a great way to make a hearty and warming meal that is also full of delicious vegetables.
With carrots, celery, and greens (optional), this amazing beef stew recipe courtesy of My Heart Beets is a well-rounded dish that will keep you full for hours!
Has your mind been going crazy lately?! The holidays have my mind spinning in a million different directions. Sometimes, it feels like I'm being tugged in every which direction, which can be exhausting. It's been more difficult for me to plan meals as I'm entering a new chapter of my life. Planning could be a lot of work, time, and effort that I feel like putting in right now. Does that mean I stop cooking? No way!!
