This is a fantastic example of "the rubber hitting the road" with one
of our new recipes. The whole point of everything we do at PEERtrainer
is finding practical ways of putting our advice into practice.
In this case, Jessica made our Black Bean Shortcut Soup for 8 people, and
they loved it, and want it on their weekly menu. This is a big win and
we are pointing people to this comment because we know how
difficult it is to get started or get over the hump. We always look for
"shortcuts" because that makes it easier!
Here is her comment, (which you can read here)
"I made this for my family last weekend and it is awesome! Sunday is usually a big eating day in my house as everyone is home and mostly bored. I made this in the late morning, and doubled the recipe.
I used 5 cups chicken broth instead of water and added 2 cups of cooked brown rice and about a pound of preseasoned chicken breast in large cubes (montreal spices, nice and peppery, I cooked it before I added it).
It was a bit soupy for our taste, so I added about 1-2 tablespoons of a rue I made with corn starch and cold water to thicken it. I got busted cooking the kale(lol) and so left it as a side dish as the reaction from my husband about blending it was both hysterical and typical.
I'll have to save that bit for another time. Almost everyone used the kale as a bed and put their soup(stew?) on top and then mixed it together while eating it. The entire pot was gone by the time I started dinner, with 8 people eating it and everyone wants it on our weekly menu lol. Thanks for such a great recipe! I can't wait to fiddle around with it some more :-D"
For those of you wondering if you can actually do something like the Cheat System,
this is proof positive that you can, and that your family can be brought
along for the ride.
We are still early in the process of introducing the Cheat System to the world, but
based on what we are seeing it is a huge success.
For those of you doing Point of No Return, this is a very exciting combination. We
need to be careful about the expectations we set, but if you do both and give it
a good effort, you are going to make changes that will last.
With all the things we do at PEERtrainer, this is the #1 objective of ours, to
make a permanent shift in your life. Even a simple thing like the recipe that
Jessica successfully made for her family, can help make this shift.
