Thanksgiving is often about abundance, or shall we say, overabundance. This year, ditch the unhealthy, calorie-dense ingredients. And at the same time, add some new zip to your dinner table. Here’s a roasted turkey breast recipe that sings with brand new flavors! Fresh pineapple, fresh oranges, fresh rosemary, balsamic vinegar, molasses… oh my!
Want the deep, slow-cooked flavors of rich, creamy beans and barley without spending a lot of time in the kitchen? Try our delicious crockpot Lentil and Barley Soup.
Very healthy and slimming. Lots of vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients from all the vegetables. And very low in calorie density! A bowl contains just 100 calories. A bowl of regular squash soup, which is often loaded with fatty, heart-damaging ingredients like butter and cream, can easily tally up 400 calories.
If you want a snack or meal idea that’s both filling and slimming, you really can’t beat this Barley Vegetable Soup. Plus, research has found that barley helps lower cholesterol levels. And you’ll love barley’s slightly nutty, earthy flavor.
The beauty of this Lebanese Lentil Soup is that it tastes rich and creamy but contains no added fat, which makes it a perfect recipe if you’re trying to lose weight.
