Wednesday's Wonderings

It is going very well. I am enjoying the idea of inventing new soups every day. I pick out random veggies and experimenting with different combinations. I baked some potatoes again today. I like having them on hand for quick starts to my meals. I intend to cut them up and make oven baked fat free home fries for my breakfast tomorrow. Add some veggies on the side and it should be a yummy breakfast.

Another thing I am enjoying is frozen spinach. I throw some in my soups and it ups the nutrition value and gives much needed iron and it is yummy besides.

I want to cook some brown rice and have that ready in advance too, but I find it hard to get it so that it doesn't have a bite in the middle. I am working on it, I guess.

I've been using a rice cooker to make my brown rice most recently, but even then I use a 2:1 ratio on water to rice then add an additional cup of water in. I think I did the same thing when I cooked it on the stove.

I hope that helps. I'm relatively unused to using leftover cooked rice in recipes because my husband eats it all before I can get to it! I do know fried rice is better with cooked rice though!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
