Dr. Joel Fuhrman is by far one of my favorite doctors. I completely trust his approach to food, known as the Nutritarian Diet. He recently came out with a new cookbook, Eat to Live Quick and Easy Cookbook, and we had to get our copy and try out a new recipe. This was our second recipe we tried and it was fantastic.
His new cookbook has 131 recipes and they all look delicious. I love how each recipe in this book is also accompanied by a picture of the finished meal as well. This really helps when trying out new recipes. As with most recipes, my family usually tweaks it a little bit to fit our family and our likes, especially with young kids.
So, like normal, I am not going to show you the full recipe but will give you the ingredients list. What I would like you to do, is purchase this book off of Amazon today so you can own a copy for yourself and try out any of these recipes.
Ok, so onto the recipe. Here are the ingredients:
Mushrooms, Onion, Spinach, White Beans, MatoZest, Vegetable Broth.
What we altered was adding more mushrooms, spinach, and tofu to the recipe. I don’t have MatoZest so I added 1 tsp lemon pepper, 1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp black pepper. As you can see, the kids enjoyed it and so did we! Win for the kids, and win for the parents, knowing they had such a great nutritious meal from this cookbook.
Did I mention this was the second recipe from this cookbook? The first was banana oatmeal cookies and they turned out pretty awesome as well, especially since we ate them all for breakfast 🙂
Of course, don’t forget to check out the Cronometer data below to validate how nutritious this recipe is. Have you tried out Cronometer yet? I don’t use to it track calories or anything like that, but it is a great tool to become familiar with the calorie density of foods as well as their nutritional profile.
