Turkey Enchilada Lasagna

Enchilada casserole made with ground turkey and comes together in the microwave

Ranch Dip/Dressing - 2 TB

Easy homemade dressing/dip. Use fresh or dried dill; it's essential with the garlic for that classic ranch flavor. You can "thin" with buttermilk, milk or water to get a pourable consistency.

New Year Blackeyer Pea Caviar

A blackeyed pea mix that goes great with pita, tortillas, and raw vegetables. Welcome the new year with blackeyed peas for prosperity and health, too!

Buffalo-Turkey Meatballs

A mix of bison and ground turkey make these meatballs beautiful, flavorful, delicious and light. Ground-up corn taco shells and eggs provide a gluten-free binder.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Blueberry Coconut Milk Protein Smoothie

Simple meal, balanced with Protein-Fat-Carbohydrate (P-F-C).

MAKEOVER: Egg Bake - Nutritional Weight and Wellness recipe (by JESSDACHEF)

Make-ahead casserole for breakfast, brunch. Balances fat, protein and carbs to keep you satisfied for hours. 1 serving for a meal or 1/2 serving for a snack. You can also split out for smaller portions in muffin or mini-muffin cups.

Peanut Butter Balls with protein

Have fun making this quick snack. Get kids involved, if you have them. Otherwise, enjoy getting your hands a little sticky and oh-so-tasty when you roll the mixture. Alt prep is to press into 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish, chill, and cut into 20 squares

Egg and Greens Casserole

Make this easy casserole on the weekend, and you'll have 8 portions of breakfast ready for the week. (Use a 1/2 portion for snacks.) Recipe includes variations for your favorite vegetables or adding meat for flavor options to this otherwise vegetarian dish.

Greens and Sour Cream Egg Bake

This is a great one-bowl make and bake (and take!) breakfast item. Use 1/2 serving for snack and full serving (1/8th pan) for meals. Make a batch on the weekend and have a week's worth of balanced, healthy breakfasts ready!

Delicious homemade popcorn

We subscribe to the "Don't eat anything you can't pronounce." theory in our house. Those microwave bags have trans fats - even when the label says "zero" it can have them! Splurge on a homemade treat that will have tossing the microwave popcorn packs in the trash. This is REAL popcorn. The butter and the oil mean that a 2-3 cup serving will satisfy you (instead of the WHOLE micro bag).

My Pie Cobb Salad

5 fresh ingredients combined with Romaine lettuce for a fabulous and filling entree salad.

Easy Homemade Ranch Dressing - 1 cup (16 TB)

Don't buy ranch dressing! You won't believe how easy this is.... you (or your kids) can make homemade ranch dressing in a flash... no MSG, no preservatives, and NO carbs!

Salmon Supreme

Tasty salad serving up those healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and an appetite-pleasing amount of protein 20g without much carbohydrates. Be sure to use Bear and Wolf or other quality salmon and safflower mayonnaise (Hain or other). Use expeller pressed canola if you can't find nut/seed mayo.

Broccoli Salad with cashews, raisins, bacon

Yummy broccoli salad. Easy, delicious and full of flavor. (An at-home version of Sunset grocery store's deli salad.)

Beef-Lentil Soup

Hearty and filling soup. PLEASE use GLUTEN FREE beef base and taco seasoning. Also use grass-fed ground beef for a healthier option, more CLAs
