Recipes I've Shared:

Quinoa with Toasted Almonds & Cranberries (1/3 cup serving; 60g)

This recipe courtesy of the Earthly Choice brand of Organic Quinoa... only, they add 1/2 tsp salt & I prefer it without the salt.

Vegetables, Oven Roasted w/ Balsamic Vinegar (6.5 oz or 184 g serving;)

Loaded with nutritional goodness, my family and friends love this recipe! (And we enjoy the leftovers heated up with other meals.)

APPLE-RASPBERRY CHICKEN WRAP

I created this sandwich and my husband and he went crazy saying I could begin a restaurant around this sandwich.

Red Cabbage & Carrot Slaw

A delicious sweet & sour slaw recipe that's very high in potassium and Vitamin A & C.

Italian Pot Roast (1-cup sauce)

We LOVE this recipe. I've entered the ingredients of the sauce only because I'll weigh my portion of roast separately. Add a 4-lb boneless beef chuck.

Pasta Salad w/ Veggies

Add either cooked chicken or cooked salmon to the recipe to make it a meal and it's wonderful!! I add lemon pepper to taste... and I love to add pickled artichokes when I have them!


Incredible! (8 ratings)

Cottage Cheese & Veggie Hash

I saw a woman who lost over 100 lbs who said she "lived" on a cottage cheese & bean recipe similar to this. It's easy to make a few different portions ahead and take for a healthy, filling lunch.

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)

Jamocha Cheesecake Shake

This is very tasty and filling- a good way to get your protein, dairy and fruit in one serving.
