I love this recipe and tend to make it often throughout the seasons. It’s low in fat and keeps you full. I always keep frozen shrimp in the freezer and my pantry is usually stocked with a variety of beans. I really enjoy Italian cooking but found it difficult to find a spice blend that was fragrant and flavorful enough for my taste, so I created the Healthy On You® Let the Good Thymes Roll Italian spice blend. This blend really does it for me with chunks of dried garlic, sage, basil, parsley, marjoram and red pepper and it’s salt-free to boot! Just a note about canned beans: nutrition-wise, cooked and canned beans are about the same, but read the labels and opt for an organic, sugar-free, sodium free or low sodium brand.

Tuscan White Bean Tomato and Farro Soup

let the good thymes roll

So I was having guests over for dinner last night and want to keep it simple. A good hearty bowl of soup, a salad, and a blackberry crumble. Nothing too crazy, right? After searching through my pantry and refrigerator, I discovered I had all the ingredients for a Tuscan White Bean Soup. I like this version using fresh Tuscan kale from my garden and healthy nutritious farro. Farro is an ancient grain that is high in fiber, protein and rich in B vitamins.

Asian 6 Spice Chili Shrimp Bowl

I’ve been revisiting some of the many cookbooks I own to find my inspiration for easy meals and adding a Healthy On You spin to them! This Asian 6 Spice Chili Shrimp bowl was inspired by a recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, Antoni in the Kitchen. I love this recipe because you can change it up every time you make it. In this bowl, I swapped the rice for cauli-rice and added eggplant and rainbow chard. Of course, we spiced it up with our Healthy On You Spice Spice Baby spice blend. ⁠
