Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken
Very Good 4.4/5
(69 ratings)

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

We love all the sweet flavors and contrasting textures in this simple fruit salad. Sprinkle chopped, toasted nuts or granola on top for crunch.

Breakfast Quinoa with Blueberries
Very Good 4.3/5
(6 ratings)

Great high protein alternative to oatmeal. Found this recipe in Martha Stewart magazine. My new favorite breakfast. Takes a while to cook, but you don't have to stand over it. I make four servings without the berries, store three and add the berries to one to eat. Reheat in microwave. You can add more of milk, sugar, cinnamon or blueberries when you serve it -- but remember, that adds more calories and you don't really need it.

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.
