More calcium and great taste in a soup...not good taste in new RICE DREAM
I do worry about calcium since I don't eat dairy and since I had a kidney stone lithotripsied I don't like to take calcium pills. I really try to get my calcium naturally.
So, I do eat white beans a lot since I learned they are high in calcium. I love any kind of beans so it is not a problem for me.
Today I dumped a can of Great Northern beans into a pot, added a can of water, a ham slice cut up, one cut up carrot, one cut up stalk of celery, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and let it simmer for about a half hour. That was all I did and I enjoyed a delicious bowl of soup. So easy...yum!
On another note, I don't like the new ORGANIC Rice Dream. I noticed they added agave syrup and don't boast of no added sweeteners on the label anymore. I don't like the taste and complained to them on their website contact section. I am disappointed because I loved the original vanilla Rice Dream and it seems I can't find that anymore, only the ORGANIC version. Oh well...anyone else notice a difference?
A little snow on the ground and a lot of fallish/wintry views from my window...'tis the season.
Since bike riding is not happening with the weather not cooperating, I am jumping, jogging, bouncing on my mini exercising trampoline while I watch TV...it is fun and it keeps me more active. But I DO miss the side of the road and my bike beneath my big old butt...
Have a nice day!
