Use whatever fruits are in season
This makes 4 mini-quiches to be cooked in a pie-maker, plus some extra bits of pastry.
This is adapted from a recipe on the SOS Cuisine site. It works with peaches or pears as well.
Makes a good breakfast - lighter than a muffin since there is no fat.
Keep a vanilla pod in a jar of Splenda, and use that Splenda in this recipe.

This cheese-scone recipe can be used for stew, or made as free-standing scones. It's adapted from the BBC's Good Food.

No sugar, salt or fat added, so a good substitute for candies.
This is adapted from a Dole recipe from the Dole newsletter.
Little steamed savoury custards. Based on the "Cooking with Dog" recipe.
This is what I thought "Crab and asparagus crepes" would be until I read the whole recipe. Same ingredients (mostly), slightly more heart-healthy and easier and quicker to make.
Can be savoury or sweet.
Needs a double boiler. Use with poultry.
Any vegetables can be used, or none.
Can be made with berries or any other fruit
Can be filled with veggies, grated cheese, fried mushrooms or anything else.
Good with any meat or fish.
Use whatever vegetables you have. These are just what we happened to have this time.
This is from EatingWell, modified.
Can be made with all milk or half milk, half water.
For two people, use half the batter to make regular pancakes first, then add tuna, peppers, onion, parsley and pepper to the rest.
Almost nothing but skim milk in them.
No fat or sugar.
To make them even healthier, use wholewheat flour.
A heart-healthy frittata
This bread is made with olive oil, chia seeds and oats.
This frosting goes with the steamed chocolate cupcakes if wished, or any other cake, but it's not heart healthy. It can be replaced by fat-free, sugar-free vanilla yogurt, or custard, or left out altogether.
This recipe can be made as 12 cupcakes or as one whole cake. It has no butter, no added sugar, no egg yolks and no added salt, but it's delicious.
These have much healthier ingredients than regular biscotti, but still taste wonderful.
