A Tasty Vegetarian Food Combo

Adding variety to our meal plan plays a role in avoiding boredom and spicing up our eating habits. Here's a fun way to start using soup. Instead of simply eating it out of a bowl, try using it as a potato topping.

Make a pot of split pea soup by combining six cups water with two cups dried split peas. Add some carrots, onions and broccoli. Cook until all are done. I prefer putting all ingredients into a crockpot and letting cook on high until veggies are done and split peas form a creamy consistency. Refrigerate unused portions.

Make a batch of mashed potatoes. I find the easiest to be steaming up the potatoes and mashing with a fork while combining minimal amounts of milk and either olive oil or a dash of butter. Mix until desired consistency is reached and stir in some pepper, salt and garlic powder.

Place potatoes onto serving plate. Make an indentation with your fork. Scoop one cup heated split pea soup onto the top of your mashed potato pile. Add extra spices, if needed.

Serve warm and you have a protein-rich, high-fiber meatless meal. Enjoy!

Natural Weight Watcher

Interested in wanting to either lose weight or maintain your current weight? Here's a natural remedy...

Wear a thick belt around your waist. Use your belt as a weight monitoring tool. Whenever you eat too much, your belt will appear to be too tight. Whenever you lose weight, your belt will loosen.

Keep track of your weight progress by placing a notch on the inside portion of your waist. Use a screwdriver to dig into the belt, making a notch. As your waist size changes, make note by adding another notch to your belt.

Good luck!
