Recipes I've Shared:
Traditional Greek bean soup. Traditionally, it is made with white beans, but I substituted here. Feel free to make the switch back.
All whole wheat flour, controlling the preservatives and sugar makes for a delicious, chewy, and satisfying bagel fix.
Meaty and satisfying, but with no meat and loaded with veggies and flavor.
No butter, reduced fat and refined sugars. Still light, lemony and delicious!
Some warm Moroccan spices make this a comforting dish with generous servings.
Serve over couscous or rice for a complete meal.
Thickened with white beans for a protein bump and no need for butter or heavy cream! Warm, thick, and rich with lots of nutrients...
Taste a bit like Wheat Thins. Soft but crunchy crackers. A perfect snack.

Pureed cauliflower and beans provide the thick, creamy texture of a cream-based soup, also adding fiber, protein, and nutrients. WAY better than canned!
Use as a dip, salsa, topping, side, or small meal.
Beautiful color and soft flavor for a healthy and hearty soup.
Adapted from "Joy the Baker" with less butter. Whole grain and low sugar, but a delicious special treat!
Greek Giant Beans recipe with modifications to make it slightly more like American baked beans (for picky husband and kid-o).
Very rich and satisfying soup! It feels very meaty and hearty! A slow-cooked soup, but not much active cooking time (and the house smells great!).
Low sugar, better fat version
A lower fat, lower sugar, higher nutrient version of red velvet cake. Moist, yet somewhat less sweet than a traditional red velvet cake. (Passed the 4-year-old daughter test!!! She deemed it "super-delicious".)
Warm and hearty meal for cool days.
A light, protein- and vitamin-packed potato salad.
Crunchy, somewhat sweet, and satisfying snack-- packed with great nutrients, fiber, and protein!
easy and healthy
Savory quiche-like zucchini pie that is highly customizable. Add whatever herbs, spices, other veggies that suits your fancy.
