Recipes I've Shared:

Curried Spinach and White Beans

Make-ahead lunch veggie mixture for the week. Serve over pasta or rice or other grain (not included in this recipe)

Cilantro Lovers Muffin Tin Frittatas

The only thing I don't like about Sparkpeople's diet tracker is that the standard measurement for cilantro is "Tbsp."

This recipe is a great quick breakfast for those of us who worship cilantro like a guru and would like to be able to measure our consumption in 'bunches.'

Spicy Sunday Night Lentils

Very quick and cheap -- I make a big pot of these lentils on Sunday night, split into four containers, and have healthy and fulfilling lunches for the week.

Could very easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth instead of the chicken stock.

Sweet and Spicy Spinach Corn Muffins

A quick tasty muffin to go with soup or chili, or for a fulfilling breakfast! Two muffins = one serving.

Garbanzo and Collard Green Curry

This happened when I wanted to use spinach but didn't have any -- spicy and delicious! Serve over couscous or rice.

Tomato, Pea and Potato Curry

Perfect for make-ahead lunches. Adapted and enhanced from an old Weight Watchers cookbook.

Peanut Butter and Berry Breakfast Bars

An adaptation of the recipe for Grape-Nuts Peanut Butter Bars from the back of the package. The kids love 'em!

Happy Once, Happy Twice, Happy Chicken Soup with Rice

I made vegetable broth by freezing all my veggie peelings for a month, wrapped in foil, and then heating them up in water for a few hours and straining out the vegetable bits. Then I added leftovers from a chicken / brown rice dinner, and voila! Chicken Soup with Rice

GT Express Veggie Pockets with Shredded Cheese

Little lunch pockets filled with veggies and an extra kick with wheat germ!

Lemon Asparagus and Couscous

This is so quick to make, and very filling!

My Favorite Things Omelette

Cilantro and cream cheese are two of my favorite things. This is a Sunday morning omelette!

Spicy Black Bean Filling

A perfect spicy black bean filling for burritos or omelets.

Tuna Goop

More protein, less fat

Curried Egg Salad with Soy Mayo

A twist on traditional egg salad

Healthy Substitutions Meatloaf

Savory meatloaf made with the Right Stuff

Twice Baked Potatoes with Curry and Edamame

An Homage to Yesterdog's Veggie Dog

"Yesterdog" is a hot dog joint in Grand Rapids, Michigan - though I haven't lived there for almost 20 years, I still yearn for their Veggie Dogs. Perfect for a quick lunch!

Salsa Turkey Loaf

An alternative to mom's meatloaf
