Cookbook creator says: AMAZING. Added 6 strips of bacon to the double recipe and added 1/3 cup of Nutritional Yeast to one batch. Made one batch with No added salt or spices-- ALL versions were amazingly popular with every person who tried them.

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake
Very Good 4.5/5

Cookbook creator says: This was GREAT! My DH who never likes fruit smoothies Loved this! I used 2 Splenda & added 4 drops of lemon juice to make it closer to the tangy cheesecake I love, and used FF cottage cheese and Skim Extra milk. VERY good-- will become a regular feature!

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.

Crispy Baked Egg Rolls
Very Good 4.4/5
(189 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I excluded oyster sauce and used a bit of diced pork (about 1 serv. in whole recipe), not shrimps. They were too wet, so I flipped them and cooked 2x time. The flavor was GREAT-- we will try this again, but I will improve my Stir-Fry technique. Hit my savory Chinese Egg Roll craving spot-on!

Mixing this with some Cottage Cheese is a great way to double the protein and "creamy it up".

I added water several times while cooking this: both the pasta and the barley will suck up water. Add the barley Earlier, add the noodles about 15 minutes before you serve. Use low-sodium canned vegetables or frozen vegetables to get this on the table in a flash on a grey rainy day: you have just enough time to change into clean dry socks before it is ready!

Sweet and Spicy Nuts
Very Good 4.4/5
(24 ratings)

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery nuts. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

Large enough for two people (140 calories each)- or a filling "meal" for one... My family loves these. A great way to get your protein, dairy and fruit in one serving-- very filling! Even a friend who doesn't like cottage cheese loves this!

This is a satisfyingly sweet and delicious treat that fills the whole house with the smell of baked cinnamon and apples.

It makes a good breakfast or healthy dessert. If you have leftover rice from dinner, this can be mixed up and baked the night before to be ready for a quick-warm-up breakfast.
