Trying out Freshness

I realized that my cooking always involves spices with salts. Calories are one thing, but sodium will creep up on you and cab lead to all sorts of health problems.

So, I've been trying out new things, such as fresh ingredients instead of spice. Blending two tomatoes with fresh basil, onions, olive oil, and a garlic clove made for a really good sauce. I cooked lean beef using the sauce and stuffed some pretty peppers with that and sliced zucchini. I topped the peppers with fat free white cheese and baked for 20 minutes. It came out good, so this week I'll be making more sauces and posting the best recipe!
