Happy 2011! As we usher in a new year, we are again bombarded with "healthy" diets and new weight loss plans which always seem a bit far fetched and unscientific. We promise to change the unhealthy habits and poor eating choices that we make which usually only lasts a few agonizing weeks.
I read this article by Mark Bittman in the NYT, and thought it was a perfect way to kick off the new year as he suggests that even though we say we don't have time to cook healthfully, we spend thirty five freaking hours a week in front of the t.v. No more excuses, America, this is getting ridiculous! Use your damn kitchen and start cooking some meals at home!
These are Mister Bittman's 3 must-have recipes for a healthy planet and a healthy population. All can be altered to fit a meat-eaters or a vegan diet. Happy New Year!
Broccoli Stir - Fry with Chicken (or not) and Mushrooms
Lentils and Rice With or Without Pork
Crunchy Cabbage Salad
