We've all heard how anti-oxidants fight cancer, save eyesight, and prevent clogged arteries. Turns out lutein, a delicious 7 mg dose of which is supplied with each serving of this recipe, is even more beneficial than beta carotene. It delays lung aging and combats arthritis to boot! Who knew improving your health could be so quick and easy, and taste so good? Try it -- you'll see! P.S. Since I felt this lacked enough elements to chew on, I've been adding canned, sliced carrots (fast, easy & healthy!) for quite a while, and thought I'd update the recipe. Also, sometimes I add another can of beans, for the same reason. Glad so many of you have been enjoying this. There's a container in my frig right now - yum!
