Recipes I've Shared:

Chicken and Black Bean Lunch

A recipe I put together for a healthy lunch alternative. This is at home on a bed of raw spinach as a salad as it is served hot from the microwave.

Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad

Light and simple - great for a snack or a side

Tina's Homemade Egg Salad

My favorite egg salad recipe

5 Spice Jeweled Turkey

This one gets its name from all the pretty colors from the mountain of vegetables added. If you've tried my Asian Stuffed Peppers, you'll find this one is very similar, but uses ground turkey instead, and everything is chopped up to fit in one bowl. This recipe makes 16 cups, but could easily be cut in half for a smaller batch.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Shrimp Scampi with Spinach and Peppers

This was originally a Publix recipe that I altered just a bit by adding more vegetables and using Dreamfield pasta instead of regular pasta. Dreamfield pasta, if you aren't familiar with it, is very diabetic friendly, with a low glycemic value. Pasta was something that had all but been cut out of our lives, both of us being diabetics, but no more. Total cooking and prep time, about 30 minutes if you chop the veggies yourself (instead of buying them already prepared).

Easy Black Bean Soup

With only 252 calories a serving, and less than 2 grams of fat, 12 grams of fiber, and high in protein, this is the perfect fill-me-up soup for lunch or dinner.

Tina's Spaghetti Squash Soup

This delicious dish is a super healthy alternative to high-carb spaghetti. You can substitute ground beef, or veggie crumbles, or just leave the meat out altogether for an even healthier, low cal dish.

Lettuce Free Asian Chicken Salad

Some of us can't eat or don't like lettuce - so here's a tasty, healthy salad to fill up your lunch plate - and it's quick and simple, too. You can substitute any vegetables you don't like - or add some that you do!

Swamp Cabbage Stew

This one is a bit high in fat because of the salt pork (substitutions can be made), but this recipe has been the same for more than 100 years. It's very filling and full of vegetables.
