People will sometimes complain to me that it's not worth listening to nutrition advice because "it changes all the time."
A case in point: early in 2019 I reported on a study that showed that those women who consumed fried chicken at least once per week saw a 13% greater risk of death from all causes than those who consumed the least amount of fried foods in general.
Then in September of 2020 I shared a study of folks in Spain: those who ate the most fried foods were 9% less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least fried foods.

This is a great Italian bean and pasta soup. While this isn't truly a one pot meal, it is pretty close - and the best part of a soup like this is the leftovers. This one is actually better the second day. It is also everything great about the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil, garlic, veggies, fruit (tomatoes are a fruit), legumes, wine, whole grain pasta and cheese.
This soup just tastes like a crisp, cold day. The great tart tomato flavor blends so well with the basil and oregano and the goat cheese adds a touch of creaminess. Serve it like your mom used to, with a grilled cheese sandwich, or pile on the veggies with a side salad.
