I love those berries, I take a cup of blue berries, about 6-7 strawberries, and a mango, 1 cup of water and run it through the blender and drink as is or refrigerate over night and add it to vanilla yogurt in the morning. Yum!
Oh and add those northern beans to your spaghetti. It will stretch that out too. For a family of four, you can cut back meat by 1/2 lb if you add beans and a can of diced tomatoes to the spaghetti sauce.
I make tacos or quesadillas - I always add beans. It stretches the meat for servings and we get the nutrition. Sometimes I'll add a can of diced tomatoes to the taco meat... that's really good. We are going to start canning our own tomatoes this summer so we can keep the pesticides low :) Totally excited!
Love those berries!! I buy green tea with berries, Kashi stuff with berries, healthy nut mixes with berries, but berries in my oatmeal, etc. Since starting SP, I've craved berries!! My body must be needing to do some major repairs with those berries. Glad to give it all the berries it needs!
I have primarily been eating blackberries and blueberries since finding out they are very HIGH IN FIBER. I love to add BLUEBERRIES to my salad; not only because of the added color but it imho adds something to the taste of the salad.
I really liked this article. It gave me several good ideas on how to incorporate more veggies into my family's diet. Fortunately for me, the kids love veggies, but this will help me to "sneak" in a few more.
