Let this all-in-one meal get you through busy periods. It's a festive, toothsome way to lose weight and stay healthy when you don't have time to focus on cooking. The beans and corn work together to provide complete protein. Tomatoes, spinach, onions, and garlic are all nutritional powerhouses.
And with lots of fiber and less than a quarter teaspoon of oil per serving, this satisfying stew can help you lose weight without feeling hungry or deprived. Add an apple or a banana for a complete, balanced meal. Carrot sticks add snap and more nutrition, but you can get by without them.
Active time: 20 minutes. Total time: 30 minutes starting with cooked beans. Serves 10. Vegan and gluten free.
