Hope you tried my 5 -step ritual to mindful eating last week. A study from the British Medical Journal showed that adults who ate fast were more than three times as likely to be overweight as slower eaters! This week, try not to multitask while eating. Instead of inhaling your food consciously tune in to the texture, aroma and flavor of each and every bite. You will be surprised how satisfied you will feel at the end of your meal!
MEATLESS MONDAY Artichoke Navy Bean Chili Don’t serve this in a bread bowl as suggested in the recipe. Too many carbs! But add salsa and homemade guacamole. Serve with a big green salad.
TUESDAY Peruvian Chicken Soup – I will use brown rice and will substitute the potato for sweet potato
WEDNESDAY Crustless Italian Quiche – I probably will use more whole eggs in this recipe rather than so many egg whites.
THURSDAY Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Asparagus and Peanut Dipping Sauce I’ll serve with some summer squash too.
FRIDAY Easy Springtime Fish Dish – I don’t like to use the suggested Tilapia because of its high Omega 6 content. Use another white fish like haddock, sole or cod.
