By ANNELLE WILLIAMS -

How are those resolutions working out? It doesn’t take long to slip back into old habits and lose the enthusiasm of a New Year’s Eve promise, especially when it comes to food.

I decided to take a different course. Rather than restricting our diet, I’m focusing on adding healthy foods to the menu.

We’ve known about super foods for a long time. Fads come and go, but the super foods have continued to hold their own as the most important clue we have to maintaining a healthier diet: beans, fruits and vegetables (the more colorful, the better), whole grains, healthy fats, low fat dairy and meats, nuts, and green or black tea. They all add good vitamins and nutrients to our diet.

A few good choices everyday add up and make a big difference.

So dust off the big pot and let’s make some healthy food that will give us a little comfort during this cold weather!

This recipe for Chicken with Chipotle Sauce is great for a family meal, but it also would be a good dish for a serve-yourself Super Bowl party. Chipotles are smoked jalapeño peppers. They have a rich, deep flavor.

For the family I serve it with rice filled with vegetables. For the Super Bowl party, add a basket of nacho chips and a melted creamy cheese. People can choose whether to nosh on chicken nachos, or have a bowl of chicken and rice. This chipotle/tomatillo sauce is really delicious. You won’t be disappointed.
