I made a goal to cook more and I've actually been sticking to it. With the diet I'm on, it's almost impossible to eat pre-packaged meals. Cooking from scratch makes it easier get the things I need in my diet and eliminate the ones I can't have. So, I've been scouring the Internet and magazines to find good and easy recipes. Last night, I made Garbanzo and Green Chile Stew ... and it was so tasty. It has a little kick to it, but I like that. And it's super filling and high in fiber. Mike said it was quite delicious and luckily since we have leftovers, he'll be eating it again this week!
Try it, it's super easy and worth making. Your tummy will thank you.
