Summer Spinach and Strawberry Salad - Lowers Cholesterol

Sweet salad that can be used at any meal, appetizer, lunch, dinner or dessert.
Uses healthy ingredients:
Sesame seeds - are a very good source of manganese and copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. In addition, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect
Olive Oil - lowers cholesterol, blood pressure and reduces body fat.
Avocado - added to salads helps the body absorb the health-promoting carotenoids that vegetables provide and contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol..
Spinach - provides more nutrients than any other food and is an excellent source for vitamin K, A, manganese and folate, it also contains at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that function as antioxidants and as anti-cancer agents.
Pure Grade B Maple Syrup - contains many minerals including zinc and manganese important in energy production and antioxidant defenses if you are deficient in this mineral the level of HDL good cholesterol is decreased.

Orange Roughy/Fish Fillets with Panko(Please see note)

Panko Bread Crumbs add a wonderful crunchy coating to fish fillets that gives them a "deep fried" taste. Even fish haters like me love it and can learn to enjoy fish! ***NOTE: In light of the recent discussions about over fishing and the Spark article about "safe fish", I am removing the "Orange Roughy" from the title. I use Alaskan Halibut for my recipe now, but I leave the choice of fish up to each of you for yourselves. :-) Submitted by SHAMBREE

Black bean tomato florentine soup

This recipe was my own creation based on my taste preferences. It is a hearty, filling, high fiber, high protein soup/stew with a slight mexican flair.

You could substitute ground chicken for turkey, but make sure it is ground chicken breast.
