I'm traveling and don't have my book handy, but as far as I can remember (at least from the first book which I'm more familiar with) beets aren't a super food per that author (I think anything that dark and colorful has to be super nutrient rich). Carrots are a pumpkin sidekick (with sweet potatoes and orange pepper)

Hmm, I don't have a jambalaya recipe!

cbmare - I haven't been able to find the magazine either. I either missed it or it's just about to come out. There have been NO Women's Day mags in my grocery store the past few days.

I think the Oprah issue is Woman's Weekly or Woman's Something Else and not the mag that Glory is in: my grocery store had both on display.

No need to nag ... it's at the bottom of the last page.

The mag is Woman's Day March 4, 2008
It's pale green with a medium blue title and a chocolate butterfly. Mine has a yellow circle in the top rt corner that says "Only $3.49"

Talking

Hi everyone!

My name is Leia. I have been lurking for a few weeks reading all the posts. I am trying to eat as many superfoods as I can each day. I have the first 2 books and I got the diet book from the library.

I have found that you can sneak quite a few superfoods into chili. I made chili the other night and it had turkey, beans, pumpkin, tomatoes, onion, orange bell peppers (sidekick), and whole wheat pasta.

I brown up some ground turkey breast with a whole onion and a whole orange bell pepper (if they are too expensive i use green). Then i add in a can of diced tomatoes with juice and a can of kidney beans. I like my chili really thick and kinda creamy so I put a drained can of white beans and a can of tomato puree and a small can of pumpkin into the blender and whip it up until its smooth. Then I pour that into the pot. I add chili powder and spices and then I simmer for about an hour until all the flavors meld. I serve the chili over a small portion of whole wheat macaroni. You can't taste the pumpkin at all. I have also put spinach into the chili with good results. I love cooked spinach though. My husband didn't like the spinach.

So that's 7 superfoods in one meal. More if you add a salad on the side.

Thank you guys for sharing. Reading your stories/posts has helped me stay on track many times.

Okay - today in Vegas was slightly better, but I still ate way too much. I still managed to avoid the desserts (and lunch had dutch apple pie which is one of my absolute favorites).

Let me see if I can remember everything I ate:

B - bowl of oatmeal, bluerries, strawberries, banana

no morning snack

L - big salad with dark greens, diced chicken breast, carrots, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, balsalmic vinaigrette on the side, little taste of vegetable lasagna, little taste of barbequed pulled pork, part of a baked potato (they roasted the skin rolled in rock salt which I love, basically ate the skin off one side)

S - ate my nectar bar, half a banana, igored all of the brownies, pastries, chips, hot preztels offered

D - dark greens, balsalmic vinagrette, scoop of mashed sweet potatoes (tasted really rich and creamy), roasted hcerry tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, asparagus, roasted garlic cloves, sword fish with mango salsa, a little bite of a wonderful cheese tortillini with walnuts, a little tomato/shrimp appetizer, avoided the dessert section and had some fruit (pineapple, watermelon, strawberries)
