Or my staple for lunch and dinners:
1.) In a big pot, brown ground lean turkey and mix in taco mix.
2.) Two cans of chic peas or garbanzo beans, drained
3.) One large can of black beans, drained
4.) Two cans of diced tomatoes and chilies with the liquid
5.) As much of 1 liter of tomato juice as you want (as thin or thick of soup as you desire. Remember to look for the tomato juice with the least sugar, usually the generic brand)
6.) Add frozen corn if you wish
REMEMBER TO LOOK AT THE LABEL AND GET THE BRAND WITH THE LEAST SUGAR~
I couldn't wait to get back to my real food. Baskin Robbins peanut butter chocolate ice cream with praline was as good as I remembered but the donuts and cheeseburger made me sick. And the good news is that my fears of falling back into the old ways in times of crisis or after one taste of the forbidden.

Blueberries are packed with vitamin C.
In just one serving, you can get 14 mg of Vitamin C – almost 25 percent of your daily requirement. Vitamin C aids the formation of collagen and helps maintain healthy gums and capillaries. It also promotes iron absorption and a healthy immune system1,2.
Blueberries are dynamos of dietary fiber.
Research has shown that most of us don’t get enough fiber in our diets. Eating foods high in fiber will help keep you regular, your heart healthy and your cholesterol in check. A handful of blueberries can help you meet your daily fiber requirement1,2. What a tasty way to eliminate this worry from your day!
Blueberries are an excellent source of manganese.
Manganese plays an important role in bone development and in converting the proteins, carbohydrates and fats in food into to energy – a perfect job for blueberries3.
Blueberries are leaders in antioxidant activity.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), blueberries are near the top when it comes to antioxidant activity per serving (ORAC values). Their capacity is impressive. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals — unstable molecules linked to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s.
