Turkey Gyro meat

Adapted from http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/traditional-
gyro-meat/Detail.aspx

"This Greek/Lebanese style meat loaf is sliced and served with pita bread, tzatziki, and tomatoes for a delicious gyro that is the closest I've come to emulating my favorite Mediterranean restaurant. The preparation time seems long, but most of it is resting time, so you can be doing other stuff!"

Original recipe called for 1/2 beef, and 1/2 lamb. I changed to ground turkey to make it a bit healthier.

Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta and Chives

Fresh ricotta brings out the eggs' creaminess.

Creamy Irish Oats

Got original recipe from Nightline. Adjusted the amounts of oil and butter and used reduced sodium chicken broth to cut down on fat and calories. Original called for double amounts of both butter & oil, and for chicken stock.

Great topped with a poached egg.

Watercress Soup

Watercress is one of the truly great radiant foods. It's hugely antioxidant, especially protective against lung cancer, and rich in iron, which makes it a key to inner beauty.

Radiant Lemonade

Vitamin A is essential for healthy, radiant skin and you’ll get it in abundance from the carrots in this juice. The bonus comes from the radishes—their natural constituents stimulate the cleansing function of the liver, making this the perfect juice when you’ve been a bit overindulgent or your digestive system seems slightly sluggish.

Vanilla "Pudding" Yogurt

This is good with any combination of extracts. Try vanilla and almond too.

Chicken Shawarma

Shawarma is like the ultimate on the go meal. Thinly sliced meat, wrapped in a pita bread with veggies and sauce is a delicious quick meal. Before attempting a shawarma recipe, please read "Shawarma 101: Tips for Making Authentic Shawarma". You won't be disappointed!

Sweet Potato Lentil Chili

Got this recipe from:

It's a great foodie blog.

Rocky Mountain Chicken

I bake up a batch of basic chicken breast each week so I always have some on hand for quick dinners. Sometimes basic chicken can get boring and I need to come up with a healthy taste bud pleasing twist.

I've had/seen this in several restaurants. It's always drowning in BBQ sauce and topped with bacon and way too much cheese. Here is a very tasty, but healthier version. I have excluded the bacon altogether, but you could use lean bacon or turkey bacon if you wanted.

Pork Roast Chops- South Beach Phase 1

My Grandmothers pork roast turned chops.

Pasta with Pesto, Beans, & Broccoli

Crusty bread and radicchio with Italian dressing make nice sides. End with red grapes and anise-dusted sugar cookies.

Recipe adapted from epicurious.com

Three Way Garlic Pasta with Beans & Peppers

This is a satisfying vegetarian main course that takes full advantage of the flavor possibilities of garlic, here cooked until soft for sweetness and body, sautéed until golden for depth, and added raw for brightness.

Recipe from epicurious.com

Chicken Salad with Grapes & Nuts

Serve this on a bed of lettuce or whole grain bread or wraps.

Sausage, Spinach, & Cheese Manicotti

I revised this recipe from epicurious.com to make it lover in fat and sodium.

Bruschetta

Quick and easy. Very tasty. Super for parties.

Greek Burger with Arugula, Tomatoes, and Feta

Using turkey slashes fat; mixing a milk-soaked pita into the patty keeps it moist.

Sesame Ginger Dipping Sauce and Marinade

Great as a dipping sauce for Shrimp & Scallion Pot Stickers or as a Marinade/sauce for chicken stir fry.

Shrimp & Scallion Pot Stickers

Quick and easy. Super yummy. Fun to make with the family.

South Western Turkey Fritatta

Very tasty and a little spicy. Great to make ahead and portion out and freeze.

Red Lentil Soup

Recipe adapted from epicurious.com

Triple Pepper confetti salad

I love to serve this with buffalo chicken over a big salad or with buffalo chicken joes. Feta is a nice alternative to bleu cheese. If you'd prefer bleu cheese you can sub it for the feta and use bleu cheese dressing instead of ranch.

Orange Teryaki Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Use leftover or pre-baked chicken to make this really quick weekday meal.

Marinara Sauce- Basic

Very tasty sauce. Super easy to make. My grandmother taught me how to make this sauce growing up. I usually make four times this recipe and freeze 3 portions so I always have fresh sauce. So much better than any pre-made sauce you can buy.
