The Health Benefits of Beans (and a vegan chili recipe!)

March 20th, 2012 | by Guest Contributor

Beans are the picture of convenience, readily available in canned or dried varieties, but I tend to lean to toward the dried variety, so that I can control the salt in my food and avoid the dreaded BPA in canned food. The flavor of cooked dried beans always seems fresher than their canned counterparts, and their texture tends to be more pleasing to the palate. In a few easy steps, you can prepare dried beans easily, and they tend to be cheaper than the canned variety


Mediterranean “No-Chicken” Noodle Soup

November 9th, 2010 | by The Healthy Voyager

I’m a sucker for a good soup and now that the weather will be cooling down, I’m so excited to break out my favorite soup recipes again. A great one that can actually do well year round is a hearty chicken noodle. The great American comfort food, the soup that makes it all better when your sick or just an all around great meal, I love playing with the original to jazz it up every now and again. This one is full of vitamins, minerals, plant-based protein and just some serious goodness! Plus, it’s simple, fast and if you make a large batch, it’s easily freezable to enjoy later
