OK - that's it. Valentine's Day is over, along with Baking Week, Chocolate Week and every other excuse to bake cookies or eat sugar for breakfast. We're cooking healthy from now on - or at least till, errrr, Easter.

Here are a few favorite healthy recipes that don't sacrifice taste in their pursuit of whole grains and winter vegetables.

Basil Parmesan Pot Beans - Use real beans from Rancho Gordo and you'll never look back. As diehard bacon eaters, we say, beans like these are as good as meat. Really.

See the rest below...

Israeli Couscous with Chard - This actually uses Trader Joe's Harvest Grain Blend, a favorite!
Zucchini Garlic Soup - Velvety and creamy, without a drop of milk or cream.

Are you in the winter doldrums of extra holiday fat and too little exercise, like we are? Want to share what you're eating to lift yourself up and out? Anyone doing a winter purge?
