A new source of fast and healthy recipes

beef and bean chile verdeI just discovered a great recipe resource on the ACE Fitness website.

On the site you’ll find 2,000 good-looking healthy recipes in categories from appetizers and salads to main dishes, sides, and desserts.

But here are three very cool features:

  • You can search by “health and diet consideration”—like, for example, budget, low in cholesterol, low in sodium, gluten-free, and high in fiber.
  • You can search by main ingredient, e.g., eggs, soy, shrimp.
  • And you can find complete nutrition info for every recipe. Calories, protein, carbs, fat, fiber, sodium, and so on.

A quick glance through the recipes indicates that most of them can be prepared in less than an hour.

The recipes are provided by EatingWell.com, which produces some really fine online and magazine content.

Oh—the photo above is of beef and bean chile verde. You can have it on the table in 30 minutes, and it has 27 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per 307-calorie serving. Not bad at all.
