From King Arthur Flour
Creamy, dreamy dessert. Rich with peanut butter molasses sugar
This is a great alternative to high-fat dips and is my go-to appetizer for company.
A cross between wedding soup and stracciatella. My grandma's recipe made slightly healthier with meatballs made from ground turkey breast and low-sodium broth.
A savory breakfast that's surprisingly low-calorie and high-protein.
A nice soup for late-summer veggies...
Great for a Sunday dinner.
A very basic pasta dough.

I pick up my CSA bag on Wednesdays, which means that whatever's left hanging around has got to go! Heat up a pot of stock and go to it...
NOTE: The sodium for this recipe is incorrect. I used homemade stock with no added sodium, but substituted boxed broth in the ingredient calculator.
Made with some of the delicious goodies from week 1 of this summer's CSA program, this is high fiber, low fat, and delicious.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away...and whole grain flours, yogurt, and flaxseed can't hurt either!
I chose low fat yogurt as opposed to fat free to make some of the fat soluble vitamins more digestible. Fat free works perfectly well though.
This hearty quick bread contains four whole grain flours that provide it with a rich texture and flavor. Fresh blueberries take it to a whole new level!
A tasty, clean sunday breakfast!
These muffins use three different whole grain flours for a texture that's out of this world. This recipe is clean, low-fat, and low-sugar.
With just four all-natural ingredients, you can really feel good about making this frozen yogurt recipe! You can also substitute any fruit puree of your choice when strawberries are out of season.
This recipe is adapted from the one which appears in a recent issue of Clean Eating magazine.
I have made several changes to the original to lower the caloric content as well as sweeten the glaze slightly.
I first made this after receiving a beautiful box of Harry and David pears as a gift. The pear sauce is fantastic right out of the jar, but this takes it one step further.
This jerky is high protein and low fat. Perfect for a snack on the go! 1 oz. is approximately 60 calories, 0.5 grams fat, and 15 grams protein!
This is a base recipe for ricotta cheese pancakes, a healthier alternative to traditional ones. Add fruit, spices, and extracts to this that suit your tastes. Some of my favorite combinations:
*strawberries and an extra dollop of ricotta
*bananas and a tsp. of peanut or almond butter
*cinnamon and sucanat or evaporated palm sugar
This nutty, crispy crust contains three kinds of flour rich in fiber and iron.
This granola is a great breakfast, snack, or topping.
