I’ve enjoyed some experimentation with new recipes and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you when I have finished tweaking them. In the meantime, here’s a picture of our Meatless Minestrone (page 131). I’ve been surprised with how satisfying this meal is! A bowl of this soup, along with some almonds and fresh fruit gives me energy for many hours. Since I’m very interested in lowering my cholesterol numbers, I’m busily researching meals that contain less meat, but still are satisfying. Brody needs more meat than I do, so in a given meal, he might eat a larger serving of Chicken Italiano than I do, and I will eat more Meatless Minestrone than he does. The dish that is a small side dish for one is the main course for the other person and vice versa. I make all the recipes safe for him (no gluten, oats, corn, potatoes or onions) so everything is an option for both of us – we just choose different amounts based on our specific needs. I am glad I’m not making 6 meals per day as I was in the beginning of our marriage when I was trying to figure out why he got sick from everything I served!
