Changing My Diet One Item At a Time!!!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I have been having fun trying new things and recipes. Last month I tried Kale and I love it. I made kale chips to start. I love them. Made them for a family luncheon. They needed to be re-toasted, but were a hit.

I have incorporated, lentils, black beans, bok choy, almond milk, almond butter, brown rice (various), organic fruits and veggies, brown flour, steelcut oats, greek yogurt, seasoned olive oils...the list goes on.

Today I introduced a new item to my list. Quinoa!! emoticon It was so good! I found a recipe here on Sparkspeople. I just added onions, garlic, olive oil, chicken broth, pepper, and of course quinoa. If you have not tried it yet, or any of the other above items...you should.

    Great!!! I've slowly and I mean slowly added some of these things into my regimen. The bok choy, quinoa haven't tried or steel cut oats. The greek yogurt not for me I don't really like regular yogurt but I still tried it. It's great that you're willing to introduce new items into your diet. I just had a conversation as to how my taste buds and willingness to try things has changed as I've gotten older. I may try the quinoa sounds delicious.
