Chickpea and Salmon Salad

fresh clean salad from March 2011 issue of Oxygen

Coconut Cream Blueberry Buckwheat Bake

From the blog "The edible perspective"... it's a filling nutritious breakfast.. and was highly recommended to me.. I haven't tried it yet (confession) but I wanted to see the nutritional value.. and since I needed to enter it I thought I'd share it!

Up the Protein Chicken Salad

The combination may sound odd..but do not leave out the garlic salt...it makes the dish! If you like the salty/sweet combo this is made for you! I used to make this with mayo but tried it with greek yogurt and it is FABULOUS and packs a bigger protein punch!

Use less or more yogurt based on how creamy you like it.. use less or more grapes based on the sweetness factor you like..

Oh!.. this is a HUGE serving.. it could easily serve two people for a lighter lunch..

Fluffy Oats

Pump up the volume of your oats... with egg whites! Adding in egg whites that have been whipped to stiff peaks doubles the volume of the oats and adds protein too. [If you can handle the fat, mix one yolk in while the oats are cooking.)

Wild Rice & Butternut Squash Soup

This soup is full of nutrients and delicious too.. It makes 4 pretty big servings... if your calories can take it top with some shaved parmesan cheese.... great source of fiber and protein!

5 Ingredient Healthy Oaties

This is quick quick to make and healthy... they're not too sweet but if you're "off" of sugar they're perfect! This recipe is from HeatherEatsAlmondButter - thanks Heather!

Healthful Sweet Potato Salad

Not your normal potato salad! Something a bit different that's high in nutrition! A good source of fiber, potassium and Vitamin A.

Soyrizo Sweet Potato Casserole

ala Carolyn1213 who says "For breakfast I heat one serving of this and make one whole egg over easy and put on top of it. I love the combination of tastes and the egg yolk and sweet potato together make it taste creamy and rich. This recipe serves 4 . . . yep, a big breakfast is the way I start my day! "

Mushroom Soup

I love versatile recipes and this is a yummy one! if you want it creamier add more greek yogurt (a great source of protein)... and use it as a topping for baked potatoes or add ground turkey to it for a full meal... very versatile!

Chicken Waldorf without nuts

I use whatever chicken is already cooked in the fridge... which changes the flavor somewhat... Also, if I eat this with bread then it makes two servings.. but if I eat it without bread - it's one serving for less than 300 calories.. HUGE serving..

You can change it up using grapes or other fruit you love. Yummy

adapted from Clean Eating Cookbook

You can add nuts if you wish... it will add about 200-300 calories for a 1/4 cup...

Apple Chowder

This is adapted from Veggie Terrain blog. A super start to your day for breakfast and with apple season approaching .... well, yummmmmmm http://veggie-terrain.blogspot.com/2008/03

Avocado and Bean Spread

This is a great source of fiber and is DELICIOUS as a spread on tortillas. I top it off with some fresh tomatoes and call it GOOD. However, you can dress it up with your favorite meat and add more veggies. If you use canned beans you may need to season. I use leftover beans I make at home that are already seasoned.

Black Eyed Pea and Cilantro Salad

Easy recipe that's fresh and nutritious! Low in fat. High in fiber and protein!

This is great served over lettuce for a filling lunch or as a side to chicken or fish.

Fish Tacos

Delicious and delicate with pico de gallo. Serve with a side like a cool black bean salad. A great Sparky black bean salad recipe is ElaineHN's Black Bean & Corn Salad

Wheatberry Salad

A healthy high fiber salad. Another delicious way to get a grain into your diet. Best served at room temperature.

Mango Pita Pocket

A fresh summer sandwich packed with nutrition! It's another way to work in a whole grain and is a great source of protein, fiber and potassium. This packs a PUNCH of nutrition. Not into meat? Leave out the chicken.. the punch is still there!

Fiberful Peanut Butter & Strawberry treat

This is a quick and delicious. A great source of both protein and fiber - so it's sure to stick with you for a while. MMMMMMM So good it's decadent!

Artichoke Chicken

This is a very quick and tasty dinner. It's great with rice too.
