They can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and freeze well too. Check out the recipe on page 4 for a great black bean soup.

5. STIR-FRY. Stir-fry can be made quickly and tailored to your family's preferences. You can make a stir-fry with lean beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp and add your favorite veggies. I love zucchini, carrots, broccoli, peppers, and mushrooms. Water chestnuts add nice texture and are easy because they come canned. You can also add some chopped almonds or peanuts for a little extra heart healthy crunch.
