This late January weather is reminding us we are still in the winter season. Many places have lots of snow and ice. Staying warm can be a problem. What better way to warm up than with a bowl of hot soup?

Today I want to share a thick, veggie-filled soup recipe that will have you chopping and enjoying its rich aroma. So get out your chopping boards, a large soup pot, and lets get to it.

Veggie Chowder (“chowder” means it’s a soup with fish, clams, or vegetables, with potatoes, onions, and other ingredients and seasonings).

Glad to have you visiting today!

In the last post we looked at some words pertaining to food labels and other terms related to food. Did you divide the words and phrases into “good” and “poor”?

Here is the way I think of those words and phrases:

“Good” words to look for when choosing food:
fruits
whole food
whole wheat pasta
organic
whole grain
whole grain oatmeal
eggs
natural
vegetables
plain organic yogurt
brown rice

“Bad words” or foods or processes to avoid when choosing food:
hydrogenated fats
white rice
artificial flavoring
colas
corn syrup
refined flours
high fructose
frosting
artificial dyes
refined – white bread

Today, let’s take a look at some categories of foods or common words and phrases found on food labels. I would like you to divide these up into two columns. On one side, place all the words or phrases that are considered “good words”, or those that promote health, and on the other side write the “bad words”, or those that drain our health.

Select from the following list:
hydrogenated fats
fruits
whole food
whole wheat pasta
organic
whole grain
white rice
artificial flavoring
whole grain oatmeal
colas
eggs
corn syrup
refined flours
high fructose
frosting
natural
vegetables
artificial dyes
plain organic yogurt
refined – white bread
brown rice

This is a week to remember and to celebrate. I wish I were in Washington D.C. right now joining the thousands of people who are celebrating Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and joining in the festivities of Inauguration Day.

We Americans, and perhaps the whole world, have great expectations of our new President-elect Barack Obama. Our wishes and prayers go out to him to guide and direct his actions for the good of our country.
