some recipe/food info

gotta make this quick - weekly team status update progress meeting this morning...

about the turkey veggie meatloaf - it's one pound ground turkey with one can of chickpeas - mushed. it's a pain to mush the chickpeas but if you have a food processor, it's probably easy. i add in grated veggies - whatever i have on hand - zucchini, carrots, parsnips, cabbage, peppers, onion, celery, beets - whatever you like and have on hand. i try to do a blend of 1/2 turkey to 1/2 veggies. i add whatever grain i have on hand - oatmeal, wheat, whatever... and an egg to bind it. it's also a good place to add ground flax if you have it on hand. i divided them into muffin tins this time and it made 24 meatloaves with about 1 point per loaf.

about taboule - Near East brand has an easy one - you just buy their box mix and add in tomatoes and cucumber (or whatever you like - avocado is also good) - and olive oil and lemon juice. you can also add extra spice - mint, cilantro, parsley are all good. the fresher the better. i've made taboule from scratch and it's even better and seriously not the least bit hard to do. boil water, pour over wheat, let it absorb, add olive oil and lemon juice and chopped veggies and herbs. super easy.

ok... gotta run. happy monday!
