“I look for recipes with lots of antioxidants, like the green and red peppers, that are good for your heart. From reading labels and recipes, I’ve learned that I’ll get a good portion of my daily veggies from this chowder.” Cathy P.
A Note from the Nutritionist:
Make a meatless meal one or two nights a week. If you are making the switch to meatless eating, you may want to cut your ingredients, as in this hearty chowder, into larger pieces, which makes them seem more filling and plentiful.
