As you may know, I've been trying to eat healthier lately! I'm motivated by my need to lose weight, but I am trying to lose weight as a result of making healthy choices. I am in no way starving myself. In fact, I feel like I eat all the time. It's what you eat that counts, ladies! One challenge I've met recently is cooking vegetables that my husband will eat. You see, Mr. Robinson is quite the picky eater. He eats two vegetables: canned cut green beans and canned sliced carrots. I had perfected the art of buttering those veggies up, and they were delicious. Well, I'm trying to cut out as much butter as possible. Here is the recipe I made up for very flavorful and healthy carrots.
1 Can of Sliced Carrots
1 Package of Ham Bouillon Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
2 Whole Cloves
Step One Place a small pot on top of a small stove eye set on HIGH. Empty your can of carrots + juice into the pot.
Step Two Tear open the Ham Bouillon package and pour the seasoning on top of the carrots. It's a powder, so it will dissolve.
This little packet will give you the same amount of "ham" flavoring as cooking with a ham bone & butter. It can be purchased in the Latin section of Walmart and Food Lion.

Step Three Add two Whole Cloves to the broth. Top with a little salt and pepper, and stir.
Step Four Cook on high until it reaches a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for as long as possible to get the full flavor you want! :) I usually start cooking my carrots first, and then work on the meat and other side. But, I have learned if you cook the carrots for too long, they'll mush. Gross.
But these carrots will be yummy and flavorful and healthy! Enjoy!
