Spinach with Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Pasta for Two

A very satisfying, fresh dish that is very fast and easy to make. If you want to cut down on the fat, just eliminate the parmesan cheese. The trick is not to overcook it. The bright green spinach and red tomatoes make it very colourful.

Banana Walnut/Oatmeat Muffins

Lighter muffins and a great way to use up over ripe bananas.  The bananas make the muffins moist so they don't need a lot of oil or butter to make them delicious.

Fresh Fruit Salad

Any light fruit will do--watch grapes though, they are higher in calories. When you squeeze the juice out of the grapefruits, it makes a nice broth for all the fruit to season in. A squeeze or two of lemon juice will keep the fruits bright.

Strawberry/ Banana Smoothie

This is a great thing to have after exercise or for breakfast or anytime you want to pump up your protein intake or calcium count.


Very Good (1 rating)
Red River Cereal, Hot

Couldn't find this healthy. old fashioned cereal on your data base so I have added it. This cereal has lots of flax in it which makes it a good source of Omega-6. It also contains a whopping 6 grams of fibre which doesn't hurt first thing in the morning. It takes just a little longer to prepare than oatmeat but gives you lots of nutritional bump to start your day. I'm almost 60, and my mother served me this most of the winter.

Chickpea & Pasta Salad with Greek Seasonings

This packable salad can be altered to your taste.  When I make it up, I avoid putting in cucumbers because they become mushy in a day or so.  Just add them when you serve it.  No many calories there.  If you are a vegan, just eliminate the feta cheese.  Olives are nice added and add tremdous flavor.  Just cut down on the olive oil in the recipe and chop the olives finely.

Baby Arugula & Blood Orange Salad

A different salad which also works with other fruits than Blood Oranges such as strawberries, raspberries or apples.  The season for Blood Oranges is so short--why not give it a try.  It is very refreshing.

Grilled Scallops and Jumbo Shrimp with Cilantro and Lime

Serve with Southwestern Black Bean and Avocado Salad

Lentil Salad

Easy to make and loaded with excellent nutrients, this satisfying dish is something you can pack for lunches or serve as a side dish with entres as a change.  It is especially useful in the winter when good veggies are hard to come by.  You can change up the ingredients to flavor the lentils by using garlic, tomatoes, artichokes, other herbs etc. It is also very nice with the addition of feta cheese, oregano and chopped sweet peppers. This salad is high in fibre and has a fairly good protein value.
