Your Food should be genuine as well
Many believe your food should be real too, and I generally agree. Clean Eating Magazine is full of great ideas on how to eat better. The website has some good info, but to get the whole deal you need to buy the magazine. You can pick it up at Whole Foods or Sunflower Market (a cheaper version of Whole Foods where we shop). The general idea is to stay away from processed foods and to cook using fresh ingredients.
It's difficult to do 100%. For example, how do you make your own corn chips to go along with your freshly-made pico de gallo? For those food items you must purchase, they give you tips on the healthiest choices. For pasta dishes, they recommend the whole wheat variety.
Chiles are a great healthy addition to any meal, and the New Mexico, or Anaheim, variety are a great choice for grilling. They are meaty and not hot. I enjoy grilling them and them stuffing them with good food.
Canoas Verdes Recipe
* 1 pot of borracho beans: Canned beans drained of that syrupy stuff and rinsed. Cooked in a pot over a fire with a can of beer and your favorite southwest spice mixture
* Chiles: Cut a slot out of them and take out the seeds and veins if you want them to be less hot. Chop up the pieces you cut out of the chiles and add them to the beans, along with some onions
* If you want to add meat to the recipe, fix it up and grill it!
* Roast the chiles on the grill. A second rack up off of the main grilling surface works best.
When the chiles are roasted to your taste, fill them with the beans and the chopped up meat and enjoy!
Have a happy Sunday!
