Chicken & Rice with White Beans Soup
Bad 1.0/5
(1 rating)

I keep a lot of dried beans & grains on hand all the time. My family & I really like this soup. It tastes good & is so good for you. You can add some Tones Chicken Base if you'd like, but have found it to be flavorful enough without. This is a taste good, feel good soup. When my family & I eat this, it's our main course, so we usually don't just restrict ourselves to 12 ozs. It's so good & a naturally light meal that it's filling without a lot of fat or calories. Feel free to doctor it to your hearts content. This is just a basic recipe & I add & subtract ingredients according to what's on hand.

Turkey Meatloaf
Very Good 4.8/5
(27 ratings)

This is a fast, easy, and flavorful rendition of a favored food - meat loaf. You buy cheap and common ingredients to prepare a healthy main dish. I generally serve this with a side of steamed broccoli, green beans or mixed veggies.

With 2g of fat and 28g of protein, you can't go wrong!

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.
