Strawberry Smoothie with Coconut Water & Flaxseed

Delicious decadent tasting but super healthy smoothie. Tons of protein plus an incredible 8 g. of fiber! Great way to start the day.

Hamburger Cabbage Soup - DELICIOUS! :)

This yummy soup fills you up for a lot of nutrition and very few calories. And it happens to be perfect for the zone diet. You can make a huge batch and eat it for days, or freeze in portioned containers.

Nonfat Sugar Free Creamy Frozen Mochaccino

If you are having a craving for your favorite high calorie frozen coffee shop blended drink, try this instead. For a fraction of the calories, you can get your fix! (Plus there's a good amount of protein, calcium, and fiber in this!) :-) If you want a thicker shake, you can experiment by adding less milk and more Greek yogurt.

Chicken Salad with Pecans and Dried Cranberries

This is awesome, yummy comfort food. I serve a small scoop on Martin's whole wheat mini potato rolls, which have 5 grams of fiber each, for a high protein, high fiber meal. Makes 7 servings (1.5 oz. each, assuming the whole batch comes out to 10.5 oz).

Garlic and Oil Pasta with Broccoli and Pine Nuts

This is delicious and so healthy -- comfort food. Plus it comes together very quickly. An easy weeknight meal, but fancy enough for company. There is a healthy dose of protein (without any meat) and fiber.

Channa Masala (Indian style Chick Peas)

This is a classic vegetarian Indian dish adapted from a Madhur Jaffrey recipe by Zeke Koch on recipezaar. Yum -- and so healthy.

Authentic Mexican Steak Tacos (only 99 calories each!)

These are yummy, authentic Mexican style steak tacos that are surprisingly diet friendly and extremely easy to make. I calculated the nutrition for 3 servings of 3 tacos each, but if you want, you could make four tacos per serving (with less meat per taco) for 45 extra calories. Just enter one additional corn tortilla into your nutrition tracker.

The prep time is practically nothing, although the cooking time to get the beef fall-apart tender is about 2 hours. Alternatively, you could go the slow cooker method (setting everything up in the morning on low) and have for dinner that evening. Enjoy!

Low Fat Garlic Vinaigrette

This flavorful dressing is bursting with garlicky flavor, but is super low in calories and fat. Plus it whips up in just a couple minutes! Best of all, it has none of the MSG and other weird additives that can lurk in bottled dressing. You can always make a double batch and keep it in the fridge for a couple weeks to use as needed. Feel free to experiment by adding fresh or dried herbs to jazz it up, although I think it's great just as it is. You can also substitute any kind of juice (pomegranate, for example) for the lemon juice, or to make a sweet berry dressing, try adding 1/4 cup of pureed blueberries -- just increase the lemon juice to 4 T to balance out the sweetness, and leave out the garlic, if you do.

P.S.: a tip to get rid of stinky garlic fingers -- rub your hands well on any stainless steel surface (like your water tap) being sure to rub everywhere that the garlic touched. Then wash your hands, and voila -- the smell is gone!

Chicken Sausage and Vegetables with Polenta

This is tasty and comes together very quickly. It's a large satisfying serving for a small amount of fat and calories. Plus, there's a good amount of fiber and protein.

Hummus with Tahini

Hummus is so versatile and tasty. My latest use for it is to make a delicious sandwich of it on sprouted grain bread (like Ezekial bread), with roasted red peppers and thinly sliced avocado -- an idea borrowed from an adventurous local sandwich shop.

Sweet Potato Salad with Andouille Sausage

This is a fantastic, healthy, and hearty salad -- especially during the summer months, as it can be served warm, room temperature, or cold.

Healthy Italian White Bean Salad

This salad is so incredibly tasty and healthy. It’s got a flavor that’s bright from the basil and lemon juice, and salty/savory from the onion, garlic, olives, and artichoke hearts. I love it, too, because it looks like an Italian flag that was put in a blender! Great for picnics, BBQs, etc.
