A Pot O' Mince, or "Sloppy Joes."
I first tried this recipe fifty-six years ago; only we called it mince on toast, as it was served on toasted bread rather than bread rolls. It was a favourite.
I cook large quantities of a recipe similar to this when my home grown summer vegetables are in season. I freeze them to eat the best of my tomatoes through winter.
Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat and brown the onion and meat. Add spices, vegetables, and pasta.
Simmer, uncovered, occasionally stirring until the mixture thickens.
Split the bread rolls and top with the mince mixture.
Garnish with sliced tomatoes.
Serve with mashed potato, or for these cutting carbs, cauliflower and or sweet potato
Checked out my Prevention Magazine today and I was delighted to find that five of my favourite foods are there at the top of the list of the top foods to build our immunity to viruses like the flu
1/ Yogurt. I love my yogurt, have it for breakfast every morning. Yogurt has been a well know food used by many cultures famous for the percentage of centurions (people over 100) in the population.
2/ Garlic. I knew this would have to be high on the list, it was chewed by the monks, who tended plague, victims and they were the few who survived the close contact.
3/ Mushrooms. These I also know to be a great food, high in a vitamin 17 which is not found in other vitamins so a must for the vegetarian, it also tastes meaty and is great used in meals to help cut back on some of the over consumption of meat, in the average civilized country, diet.
4/Oily Fish, example Salmon. I LOVE adding salmon to my diet, regularly, this fish is also high in calcium especially if you eat the edible bones. I am a strong believer in including portion controlled healthy oil into any weight reduction meal plan and we must have oil in out diet to absorb fat soluble vitamins and to keep all our body functioning well. Our gall bladder is dependent on daily oil in the diet to keep it functioning, gall bladder disease results form yo yo very low fat to high fat diets and it is mostly preventable with a regular low to medium low good fats added diet, just watch the portion control. The fat soluble vitamins maintain the health of so many organs from the vital ones like heart and lungs and digestive tract through to the reproductive system and skin. All nutrients are required in a balance to maintain body health, don't fear adding some fatty fish to your diet even if you are trying to lose weight, it's not what you eat but when and how much that affects your weight.
5/Black Tea. I like that one. I still use a cup of tea, to offset a desire I still get, to eat when not hungry. It is something I have learned to use and enjoy as a substitute for fattening suppers and afternoon snacks too close to my evening meal.
