QUICK FIX

If you've read our book, THE PARADIGM DIET, you'll know the focus is on plant foods, particularly greens (and other vegetables), beans, seeds, and sweets (fruit). Including all four of these maximally-nutritious foods in one meal is easy and delicious. Start with these ingredients:

4 cups water

1 cup red lentils (bean)

1 cup quinoa (seed)

1 cup zucchini (green)

1 cup tomatoes (sweet)

Add the water, the lentils, and the quinoa to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook an additional 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. By this time it should be a porridge.

Remove from stove, transfer to bowl and add fresh tomatoes and/or avocado. Season to taste. This serves four and has about 250 calories per serving. You can increase the quantity by doubling the ingredients and storing leftovers in the fridge, where they will keep for several days, though it's so delicious you'll probably eat them for tomorrow's lunch, as we did.

Hairy chest optional.
