All you need is a couple of pounds of potatoes, organic garlic, onions, carrots, fresh bay leaves, and some parsley to taste. Add 1 cup of organic low-fat or skim milk along with organic or fresh, drained chicken broth. Boil for about 20 minutes and voila! Pair this with some boneless skinless chicken breast or make it a vegetarian meal by itself.

    Hello:
    I am new to your web page, but I like what I see, and I would love to know if there really are any health shakes I can drink that would really help trim some flab.
    I walk at least 4 to 5 miles a day and eat 6 smalls meals daily.
    Thanks in advance for any info.
    Cindy Haas
