2012 Healthy On The Hill Nov 29
Good wholesome food, protein and vegetables prepared the same way week after week gets a little boring for both the chef in the house and his or her family. With some simple tweaks, you can make the “same meal” taste totally different. How? By changing the spices! You can use simple ingredients like lean ground beef, turkey or lamb and grilled chicken that can be cooked in advance.
Here are some ideas:
Chinese style: broccoli, red peppers, peapods, ginger and soy sauce.
French style: carrots, tomatoes, green beans, cinnamon, nutmeg, tarragon, lemon pepper
Greek style: eggplant, zucchini, olives, feta cheese, red wine vinegar, oregano, marjoram
Indian style: tomatoes, cauliflower, zucchini, curry powder, coconut milk
Italian style: peppers, tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, rosemary, oregano
Thai style: green beans, eggplant, peppers, lime juice, soy sauce, peanuts, basil
Eating dinner together as a family during the holiday season can be challenging given all of the extra commitments. By doing some basic cooking on the weekend, you can have a nutritious and delicious dinner in 15 minutes or less. ENJOY!
