Mix It Up with Veggie Stew featuring Whole Black Soybeans

We’ve talked about the many advantages of Whole Black Soybeans that are a big part of the deliciousness of HOMESTYLE SIMPLE meals.  Black soybeans are low net carbs while being high in protein and fiber. Rich in antioxidants and high in omega-3 fatty acid, this versatile “superfood” delivers the goodness and nutrition our bodies need.

When your time permits, here’s a vegetarian recipe featuring whole black soybeans to help mix-up your meal plan.  Check out this blog, too, at Farm on Plate, from a young couple from India.  Their story may inspire you!  All of this at the link below.

Single-Serve Packaging Could Help People Eat Less

Intuitively, this makes sense.  Single-serve and portion control have been winning topics in the area of weight managment.  But now, there is research to back this claim up.  Here’s an article from Reuters, and from the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, online February 21, 2014, that makes the connection.  As the article points out, it is a smaller study, and more research is needed.  But this is a great start, and the first we have seen this type of research done, in this area.

Product Review! Thanks to Kyndra at Peace, Love and Low Carb blog!

We love it when people wax poetic about our Homestyle Simple meals.  Here, our new friend Kyndra does a terrific job of outlining the many benefits of these items, all in a fun and fact-based narrative that leaves us flattered!  Here are some of our favorite parts.

I opened the package, popped it in the microwave and 90 seconds later, my meal was ready to eat.  (you can also heat it stove top if you prefer) I topped it with some sharp cheddar cheese and dug right in.  I was surprised by how flavorful it was.  It had nice, big chunks of beef reminiscent of beef stew meat.  If someone served it to me, I would never know that it was a low carb chili.  As much as I love to cook and develop my own recipes, I love the idea of having a few boxes of this on hand for those moments when I want a nice warm comfort food but just don’t feel like cooking.  My husband took a box with him to work the next day for lunch.  Sure enough, right around noon time, I got this text “This chili is pretty darn good”.  Wife tested, husband approved!
