Its Scientific fact that, we all feel hungry but truly speaking being hungry sucks. We women spends half of our time in kitchen, but the question is spending hours in cooking a meal is nutritious and delicious? Its correct time to think of what I am eating and does my family fit and healthy.
Have a look at 5 healthy dinner recipes from my cook book:
Take a large skillet in that combine 1 bowl of boiled black beans, 1 cup of diced tomatoes, 1 cup of diced zucchini and 1 cup okra or lady finger. Cook all these for 5 to 10 minutes or till all veggies cooked nicely. Finally stir these veggies in your favorite hot sauce of your choice and add salt to taste. I love to mix veggies in spicy and creamy pink sauce.
