diet to support my Iron-man-level triathlon training regimen,"

high in fiber, low in fat and contains no cholesterol. It
combines the best in grains, pasta and greens and is a snap to
make - only 3 or 4 minutes of your time."

likes it, even the kids," she said. "When I first offered the
dish to my four grandchildren in Washington, D.C., they were
reluctant, but once they tried it, they loved it."
