Vitamin-B-Boost Navy Bean Soup
Jane Day is co-author with Dr. John Day of "The Longevity Plan," documenting their journey to China's Longevity Village. "Preparing food for guests has always been a stressful thing - feeling inadequate and fearing that the dishes wouldn't turn out. Posting recipes has been an exercise in the ultimate confrontation of this fear. Gratefully, the joy in figuring out how to make favorite dishes with healthier ingredients now exceeds the fear and I take courage in the idea that maybe I can help someone else do the same."
If you are in a super big hurry, this is a nutritious way to make a fast food dish that is warm and flavorful.
Five ingredients warmed in a pan on the stove: Navy beans, bouillon, herbs de Provence, nutritional yeast and water. Throw in a few diced carrots too, if you want.
Nutritional Yeast gives you an awesome B-Vitamin boost, along with other essential nutrients. Experiment adding nutritional yeast to your favorite dishes!
