Coconut Chai Cake with Flax and Walnuts

Derived from FatFreeVegan's totally awesome Coconut Chai Breakfast Cake recipe. I've cut down on the sugar and added some healthy fats to the mix for a little more balance of nutrients. Link to original recipe here: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/03/cocon

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burrito

While it's tasty by just following the recipe, try adding a little salsa and sliced avocado to these burritos for something extra special.

I call these burritos my "comfort food" as they're just so tasty. The combination of sweet potato and black beans seasoned with cumin is delicious.

Scrambled egg with salsa and cheddar cheese

Quick simple breakfast. Fast and easy to make and very tasty, too. For a fuller meal, serve with a slice of whole wheat toast and possibly some fruit.

Curried Tofu Stir Fry

This was something I just mixed up one night. The curry powder was an added experiment, and it turned out really good. For the tofu, I recommend using extra firm tofu that's been frozen and then thawed for better texture.

Peaches & Cream Smoothie

Quick, frosty smoothie. Great for breakfast or a snack.

Whole Grain Pumpkin Carrot Muffins

I've tweaked a different whole-grain recipe to make healthy pumpkin muffins good for a healthy snack or as part of a healthy breakfast.

Lightened Butternut Squash Lasagna with Shiitake Mushrooms and Sage

The orginial recipe came from Sara Snow's Living Fresh show on Discovery Health. Well, after I calculated the calories on this crazy recipe, it came out to 995.7 calories per serving! I do NOT think that's "healthy". So, I've ligthened it up the best way I know - LESS cheese (who on earth needs 5.5 cups of ricotta cheese in their lasagna???). I'm using HALF the amounts of cheese called for in the original recipe, plus opting for part-skim ricotta over whole milk ricotta. I also reduced the amount of eggs. These simple modifications brought the calories per serving down from the nightmareish 995.7 to a more reasonable dinner-size 582.6 per serving. Enjoy!

Veggie Wrap with Honey Mustard

Tasty vegetarian wrap with honey mustard dressing. This is versatile, so add/subtract veggies as you see fit!
