Often when I bring my dinner to the gym I have people commenting on how yummy something smells or looks.  Often someone ( ahem Rebecca) sneaks a bite..

This is what I brought for dinner on Wednesday night.  It’s simple to make.  You can make a huge batch and have it for the week.  You can make it vegetarian ( i would add chickpeas then)  or add chicken broth and Chicken to give it extra protein.

This is for you Rebecca.    I’ve been trying to use lots of Ginger and Turmeric in my cooking as they are both anti-Inflammatory.  Here is a quick and easy recipe for a vegetables stew.


2 Garlic Cloves – finely chopped

2 medium  onions – finely chopped

2 to 3  inch piece of Ginger – finely chopped

Olive Oil

4 cups homemade chicken broth ( with or without chicken pieces)

2 Yellow Beets – peeled

1 Large Yam

1 Large zucchini

1 Piece celery chopped

Cabbage slaw

Greens – Swiss Chard, Collard greens, Bok Choi etc..

optional:  Carrots, Green beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower  _ you can’t really go wrong by adding more Veggies!

2 teaspoons Turmeric powder

1 TBSP Lemon juice

1 TBSP Wheat free tamari sauce or Coconut Aminos
