Daily Tidbit:  I love Garlic!  It seems to make it's way into most of the things I cook.  A little goes a long way, and can make a difference between a good dish and a great dish!  It was in my Hummus Wrap today and my North African Vegetable Stew tonight.   According to Prevention Magazine it is one of the "World's Top 25 Healthiest Foods", and reports that:

"High consumption of garlic lowered rates of ovarian, colorectal, and other cancers, according to a research review in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition".

North African Vegetable Stew for Dinner!

Dinner:  North African Vegetable Stew
1 large bowl (2 cups worth) of North African Vegetable Stew, made with chopped Yukon Gold Potato, Carrots, Zucchini, Onion, Garlic, EVOO, Cinnamon, Paprika, Tomato Paste, Chick Peas, 3 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth & 3 cups Water and cooked until Veggies are soft and topped with fresh Cilantro
White Wine

I had a 2nd bowl of this (about 1 more cup's worth), I was super hungry and it was delicious!  And yes, this is traditionally served over a bed of the Couscous, but I chose to do without and enjoy it as a stew because I already consumed a good amount of whole grains earlier in the day (Cereal at breakfast & Wrap at lunch).


Dessert: 1 Gala Apple, Water
