This is a great little tuna salad. I don't like using chemical-heavy products, so regular mayo (fresh-made, if you can swing it!) in tiny doses works for me.

This is best served on lightly toasted home-made bread with crisp lettuce and room temperature beef tomato slices.

CAUTION: eating poppy seeds MIGHT cause a person's drug test to show positive for opiates. I include it for texture, and because it's rich in critical minerals that dieters sometimes don't get enough of.

How few ingredients to you need to make a great soup? Six plus water. High in protein, fat-free (0.2g/serving). I use a serving of my Simple "Seeded" Bread to boost the protein and fiber even more.

That happens when too many mushrooms meet an urge for pea soup. And Texas happens. Wow this tastes good!

Woof! Sure, it's healthy, but how many calories are in the dry fire extinguisher contents? Salt-free, vegan. CRAZY stats: it's like a spicy multi-vitamin (you get over 100% of your vitamin C in very serving).

I make this about every day. It's simple, healthy and goes well with soups and stews. Not a great sandwich bread, but it's a meal replacement if you add some veggies to it.

Reverse engineered from the Mongolian restaurants, I've got this on tap for tomorrow as each kid has their own form of food insanity. Okay, here's a joke: a carnivore, a vegetarian and a picky eater go into a restaurant. "We'd like to share an entree," they say.

So this is for the meat-eater. I'll integrate it into the vegetarian stir-fry on my own.

Yowza! And delish! Serving size is one cup. Add quinoa or rolled oats for a thicker stew (not included in recipe).

To lower the salt, substitute a Serrano pepper for every tablespoon of Tabasco Sauce. Or just keep dumping 'em in 'til everyone's sweating enough!

Sometimes you want to hit that protein craving hard. This is a virtually salt-free recipe (sorry, vegans, not for you!).

If you like it a little creamier, pour off 2C of the soup and split peas, leaving out the carrots and chicken. Blend completely, then add back in.

If you want a vitamin C (and spice) kick, toss in 14-16 rinsed dried red chili peppers, with seeds, chopped into 2" segments. (Add AFTER the water, so you don't mace yourself in the privacy of your own home!)

Cheap, filling, tasty, quick and infinitely malleable. Add a pound of meat, fish, or tofu of your choice (venison's my fave) to really round this out.

Wow. Creamy, dreamy and just over 100 calories a cup. About an hour to make, and with 22-1C servings,

Don't even ask. But it tastes great and has all kinds of odd ingredients.

WARNING: After eating this you may test positive for heroin (because of the poppy seeds). Skip 'em or wait a few days before getting tested.

(Now when's the last time you saw the word "heroin" in a food recipe?)

Very warm, very calorie-effective. Spice it up to add more alarms or eliminate the Serrano peppers if you're a total spice wimp.

This is a perfect "it's cold outside let's huddle by the fire for warmth, Ogg" kind of meal Caveman optional.

Get your protein, omegas and fiber here! This is the perfect accompaniment to my soups or stews, especially if you're out of bread bowls (see that recipe in my cookbook). Really easy, fun activity for kids. Add wheat germ, oat bran, or a 1/2C of anything else to make it more interesting.

SERVING SIZE IS 1/2 OF ONE ROLL.
