Oh Mr. Scale, you are so cruel. Why don't you go down? Just a little bit to give me some motivation? No worries, I won't give up. You can't defeat me that easily.
Sunday I stocked my counter with all kinds of fruits, local bread, and even some fresh basil. I recently read in Real Simple magazine that eating oranges can help lose weight. Sounds pretty sweet to me.
I also made one of my favorite soups. It's super healthy as it's packed full of veggies and barley. And, it meets my criteria for cooking: must be easy or I won't end up making it.
It's a veggie barley soup and here is the scoop on how you prepare it:\
Cut up a small onion, use half a bag of mini-carrots, and cut up 5 stalks of celery. Put some olive oil in a large soup pot along with some garlic and the onion. Saute it up.
After the onion is cooked, add 5 cups of water, 2 beef bullion cubes, the veggies, 3/4 cup of quick barley, a bay leaf, and a shake or two of dried basil.
Cook for 20 minutes or until the veggies are done. There you have it, a warm, healthy meal that is great for a Sunday lunch.
Enjoy and love it.
