Great for dinner, if you're trying to make your night-time meal low-fat, low-cal and yet filling. This hearty stew of veggies packs a powerful nutrition punch and is filling and is surprisingly satisfying for a gluten-free, dairy-free, meatless meal.

Because I'm a food addict with 50 years of experience at it, I use food as a narcotic at bedtime. I can't go to sleep unless I'm really feeling satiated. Or unless I've had ice cream. This smoothie does the trick for me--fools me into thinking I've had ice cream and makes me full enough to go to sleep. I've fought the sleepy-time hungries, but I always lose and eat something bad. This recipes just says, I know myself, and I'm planning ahead to avoid disaster. I drink this an hour or two before bed.

It's simple, scrumptious and filled with superfoods. Good source for hard-to-find zinc...and if you hate oysters, chop them and it'll have the consistency of clam chowder. Pumpkin seeds have a wide variety of Vitamin E forms, high in manganese and tryptophan and zinc.

This hearty Kenyan recipe--known as Sukuma Wiki--is designed to stretch resources and to SATISFY. I like my greens smoky, but I don't like the preservatives & nitrites in ham and bacon. I use a smoked pork bone from my local BBQ restaurant that slow-smokes fresh pork roasts for 12 hours. The bone itself, with no meat, imparts a rich, smoky flavor. Vegetarians can use smoked salt.

Paleo doesn't approve of lentils, but even the staunchest say limited consumption is fine. The way I figure, if you're only occasionally going to do lentils, do split peas. They have 16.7 g of fiber in one serving compared to oatmeal's 3.4 g. This soup is thickened with an unbelievably rich volume of onions, cabbage and celery for thickening, and healthy collards and carrots. I use less salt than normal and add a teaspoon of miso and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast in my bowl of soup to add even more nutritional value--and protein. I make a big soup so I can freeze individual portions. Makes a great, filling last-minute supper and nice served with a salad.

Eat it served over brown basmati rice--or if you're of the Paleo persuasion, eat it by itself in a bowl. An amazingly nutritious array of roasted veggies and spices.

Turnips?? Really?? Yeah, turnips. They're one of the little known superfoods. This low-cal, high-fiber, super-nutritious meal is my go-to meal when I am afraid I'm going to binge, and I need to fill myself up on something that is good for me and hits my satiety quotient. This dish will leave you so satisfied, you won't be able to eat anything else--and it's so good for you, you could probably eat as much of it as you want. One bowl of this stuff will give you over 60% of your RDA of Vitamin C and over 90% of your Niacin RDA, plus a host of other vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Mayo and eggs and shrimps, oh my. I know it sounds like a recipe for a cholesterol meltdown instead of a superfood meltdown...but I don't eat eggs often (or shrimp)... The mayo is made from almond milk and ground sunflower seeds. The shrimp has glutathione and selenium (and they work best together) and is a good source of astaxanthin. It promotes satiety, is low cal and is a great source of protein and a wide array of essential nutrients. Sunflower seeds and almonds both provide high amounts of Vit E. The eggs give you that hard-to-get Vit D. The brewers yeast is high in absorbable chromium. And all the veggies in there speak for themselves.

This is a lot of food, a lot of nutrition, and not a lot of calories. I love me some cabbage. Cabbage, like turnips, is not widely recognized as a nutrient-dense superfood. It's also one of the few healthy veggies that is not sprayed heavily with pesticides, so if your budget can't afford organic this week, cabbage is a good choice--and it's dirt-cheap. This low-cal, high-fiber, super-nutritious meal lets you fill up on something that is good for you. This dish will leave you so satisfied, you won't be able to eat anything else--and it's so good for you, you could probably eat as much of it as you want. One bowl of this stuff will give you almost 100% of your RDA of Vitamin C and over 90% of your Niacin RDA, plus 57% of B-6, 43% selenium, plus a host of other vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Carrots are often avoided by diabetics because of their high-glycemic index, but the glycemic load is what counts, and carrots score well there. And carrots are one of the few vegetables that is actually affordable when purchased organic. I never peel my organic carrots, I just scrub them well and keep my nutrient-packed carrot skins intact. One bowl has over 100% of your Vit A RDA and over 90% of your Niacin RDA.

Look at this nutrient profile: Vit A 107.5% Vit B-12 10.0% Vit B-6 53.1% Vit C 23.9% Vit D 0.2% Vit E 3.0% Calcium 6.5% Copper 8.2% Folate 11.3% Iron 9.6% Magnesium 15.9% Manganese 13.3% Niacin 91.3% Pantothenic Acid 15.3% Phosphorus 36.4% Riboflavin 12.0% Selenium 41.3% Thiamin 12.8% Zinc 10.9%

Sometimes I just want something thick and bready...cakey...even cookieish...but I want to be healthy...especially if I'm craving calcium and I want to drizzle blackstrap molasses on something. Quinoa cakes do it for me. No gluten, no sugar (except the blackstrap molasses which is so good for you it doesn't really count as sugar), but you are so super-satisfied and nutrient-enriched when you're done chewing.
