Cookbook creator says: This is the first time I cooked with ground turkey. I added 1 carrot diced, 1/4c onion & tbs garlic. I also used stewed mexican style tomatoes & diced them. I did boil the peppers for about 3 min. & baked for 25 min. Removed foil, added italian style diced tomatoes & baked uncovered for 15 min. YUM!

This is a bar recipe a friend of mine gave me. The original recipe was for a protein bar, but I didn't have any protein powder at the time, so I left it out. If you want to make it a protein bar simply add 2 cups of protein powder and add an extra 1/2 cup of honey. This bar makes a great snack for before or after a workout!

It's very easy to add in other yummy ingredients...some things I've tried are: sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, ground flax, raisins, sesame seeds, dark chocolate chips, wheat germ, nonfat powdered milk & unsweetened dried coconut. The possibilities are endless! This is such a great alternative to those pricey protein bars you can buy from the store & this way you know exactly what's in them! Just play with the recipe and have fun!

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

This is an easy and delicious one pot meal. The number of servings seems rather weird, but that is how many 2 cup servings we got. I see that the sodium value is pretty high. There is no way to note it when entering nutrition information, but you rinse the chickpeas which lowers the sodium considerably. Of course you can also reduce the amount of salt you add to lower it even further! If you have left over butternut squash that is already cooked it cuts down the recipe time to less than 30 minutes, just skip the first step and proceed with recipe. Enjoy!
