A while ago my friend Jill Nussinow, The Veggie Queen, invited me to contribute a few recipes to her new book, Nutrition CHAMPS. I wanted to contribute something to the greens section so I immediately thought of this recipe for Collard Green and Quinoa Taco Filling.
What does CHAMPS mean? CHAMPS is Jill’s acronym for cruciferous vegetables, herbs and spice, alliums, mushrooms, peas, beans and lentils, and seeds and nuts. If you add just a few of these to your daily meals you’ll get the benefits of these nutritious foods.
The book is pretty cool and contains 200 recipes from 45 different recipe developers, including cookbook authors and some of your favorite bloggers. There are raw and cooked recipes from breakfast through to dessert, so you can healthy up something every day. Most recipes are low in fat, many are gluten-free, soy-free and/or oil-free.
Every chapter focuses on one of the food categories and Jill gives you some good introduction for each. And you’ll find more tips and tricks in the sidebars and recipe head notes.
I think Nutrition CHAMPS would be a good book for anyone looking to add more nutrient dense foods to their meals. It would also be a great source to add some new recipes to your standards.
What’s your go-to nutrient dense recipe?
