Healthy quinoa grain mixed with black beans, corn, peppers, and spices.
Classic chicken noodle soup made easy by preparing it with rotisserie chicken meat and egg noodles (fresh are best). For a healthy take, use whole grain noodles (or substitute for low calorie miracle or shiritake noodles).
Kale and beets are both packed with nutrients. Steaming them lightly will retain more nutrients. They can be served with a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar or your favorite salad dressing.
Root vegetables are plentiful, inexpensive and packed full of nutrients. Roast the root vegetables in the oven with fresh herbs and paprika for a warming and easy to make side dish.
When I was growing up my dad always made me a hearty miso soup for breakfast, usually with whatever vegetables we had on hand. He would also sometimes add rice or rice noodles to the soup and left-over rice or noodles. It was very comforting having soup for breakfast, especially on a cold snowy winter day in the Colorado mountains. It did not occur to me until later that it was unusual to have miso soup for breakfast compared to the typical American fare my friends were used to. My dad picked up the recipe from his Chinese language and martial arts teachers who swore by its health properties.
