Back on the Wagon!

Yesterday I actually got up and dragged myself to Zumba class. It had been over 6 months. It about killed me! But none of my beautiful clothes I bought last year fit me. I'm starting to look like Jobba the hut, NOT a good thing. So eating healthy is back on full swing too.

Here's the new recipe I'm trying out.
Mediterranean Stew
1 med butternut squash peeled & cut into cubes
2 cup eggplant cut into cubes
2 cups zucchini
1 can chick-peas rinsed & drained
1 can tomato sauce 8 oz
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium carrot
1/2 c vegetable broth
1/3 cup raisins
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon paprika
cooked couscous

Just put all of these ingredients EXCEPT the couscous in the cockpot on low for 8 to 10 hours.

I don't know how it tastes yet, BUT it smells divine!

Sounds good! I've been trying to get back into my favorite outfits too, got a little less than 5 lbs to go! Good luck!
