Rice and Beans. This staple dish of many cultures is my favorite because its cheap , tasty, and easy to prepare.

Salmon steak. Full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, but not fattening. And not only is it tasty, but they're super-cheap at the Chinese supermarkets near Corona.

I love roasted beets.. You can slice and eat them, toss them in a salad or smear a little goat cheese on them. Delicious and good for you.

Soups. You can throw in your favorite meats and veggies and still have a healthy meal.

I know greens are good for me but honestly eating my way through four cups of spinach a day takes time! So I started making my own chopped salads at home--spinach, peppers, cranberries, chicken or salmon, a little cheese, with balsamic and olive oil. Chop it all up and it goes down easy, and because the bites are small the dressing coats every bite so you can use less of it.

One of my favorite meals is lemon chicken and snap pea salad. Julienned red and yellow peppers, add snap peas, add sliced grilled chicken, topped with lots of fresh lemon juice. The snap peas and peppers give it a great crunch!

OMG, I love salmon, too. I wish it didn't have all those sticky ethical issues attached. But I still eat it!

I love eating fresh green beans! My dad has a HUGE garden and I end up canning lots of those little green things for the long winter. They are so much better than the store bought canned ones, worth the effort.

I love to sncak on Bell Peppers and cucumbers. I also love these items in all my entrees! Healthy!

I've become a huge fan of lentils once I learned how to cook them up right. Its amazing how diverse one staple food can be, especially when you examine an array of cultures and their techniques for cooking them. This month I'm hooked on preparing them Ethiopian style. Last month, it was lentil soup with smoked ham hocks. Next month, who knows!

Wow, so many good ideas! I'm off to my local farmers' market. Maybe they'll have beets, snap peas, peppers ... all this good stuff. :-)
