Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5
(172 ratings)

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

A simple to make side that replaces a veggie and a starch. Since rice and peas combine to make a complete protein, this is also a tasty vegetarian main dish.

Risotto with Mushrooms
Very Good 4.8/5
(13 ratings)

A delicious creamy Risotto preferrably done with chanterelles, but any of your favourite mushrooms will work! You could also replace the chicken stock by vegetable broth for a vegetarian version.

A somewhat healthier take on this Costa Rican jack-of-all trades dish. I've substituted brown rice for the traditional white rice.

This versatile dish can be matched with eggs, queso blanco, and tortillas for a heartly breakfast. It can also serve as the base for lunches or dinners. In fact, I often eat it alone with a berry smoothie as a post run recover meal because of it's healthy balance of carbs and protein.

You can leave out the pepper if you don't like spicy stuff. I added some chopped onion

A combination of spicy, savory flavor added to the sweet smoothness of sweet potatoes and squash. A great twist and a favorite food.

I wanted something lowfat, but still tasty. Unfortunately, I had a blonde moment, and forgot the egg (beaters), baby corn and peas. It still tasted pretty good!
