One dish at a time

Eat Well


"I've got to start eating healthier," she said. "But how do I do that?"

One dish at a time. It's the only reasonable answer. Make one small change this week and one small change next week; and so on, and so forth. Find the changes that resonate with you, and double down on them.

Try changing out your morning eggs/toast/bacon for some heart healthy oatmeal. It's cheap, easy, and full of fiber. Ready to take the next step? Try substituting garbanzo beans for tuna in your salad or sandwich.

You won't miss the flavor, or smell of

Curried "No Tuna" Salad


• *1/3 cup vegan mayo (recipe available in store or in The Loop archives)

• *1/3 cup dried cranberries • 15 ounce can of garbanzo beans • 1/4 cup diced red onion

• 1/4 cup diced celery • 1/4 cup chopped green onion (green part only) • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish

• *2 teaspoons Sweet Curry Powder • *1/8 teaspoon salt


1. Drain, rinse, and coarsely chop garbanzo beans

2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl

3. Adjust seasonings to taste


Serve on bread as a sandwich or on mixed greens as a salad. Don't like curry? Then drop the curry powder, cranberries, and green onions; and instead add 1 teaspoon of celery seed and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Adjust seasonings to taste.
