This day was very enjoyable. I only had to cook the breakfast in the microwave, steam the artichokes, heat the leftovers (soup, and eggplant casserole sauce)
I finally braved my way through the black bean pasta noodles. They really weren't a problem. I felt they were a bit too chewy, but that might be because it was the first experience with it and I was expecting wheat pasta.
So next time I'll break the noodles up before boiling, and add a minute or 2.
I'm experimenting. I made 2 servings, and I'm seeing how it stores and reheats. I'm also thinking I'd like to finish the cooking in with the sauce, or add some sauce to the cooking water??
I spent some time developing and inputting recipes, and I'm off to the pool now.
Best of the day: still to come at the pool.
2nd best: Banana Berry Breakfast
Tie for 2nd place: Bravelute's Eggplant shiitake, spinach casserole which I put as a sauce on top of the bean pasta noodles.
Worst of the day: Black Bean pasta noodles, but I will try them again!!

PS: I found the black bean noodles at my health food store. Dr. Fuhrman sells the same ones on his website. I've posted links. I'll see if I can find them again.
3 Steps to Incredible Health is Dr. Fuhrman's newest program. It incorporates the old with newer information. He includes 3 levels of diet plan as opposed to 2 levels in Eat for Life. He includes 10 food exercises designed to help you make the life changes in eating patterns. I've posted info about this on the Eat to Live Team Page.
