Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

Recipe courtesy of FOOD magazine & Martha Stewart. Just 1/2 hour to prepare & cook and leftovers freeze well! Try topping with tortilla chips, greek yogurt, shredded cheese, thin sliced scallions or avacado. Yum!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

I've been tweaking this recipe for over a year now, trying to trim the sodium. The original calls for canned beans & corn, I use cooked from dried and lower sodium canned tomato products, plus homemade taco seasoning which makes all the difference! Enjoy!

One dish Roasted Salmon & Fennel

Real Simple turned me on to cooked fennel! I served this meal with a side of steamed asparagus (more vegee)!

Not Tuna Pate

A woman at my local farmer's market sells this and my kids love it, so I found the recipe online. Here it is...

Egg Bites

Found a similar recipe in Oxygen magazine. You can swap out veggies and cheese for different combinations, like spinach, red pepper and feta. We also added diced canadien bacon, just keep an eye on sodium. Fresh or dried herbs are a great addition, try garlic powder, basil, thyme and chili flakes for kick. Great for the lunch boxes, picnics, snacks or on an english muffin for breakfast. Enjoy!

Chopped Vegetable & Black Bean Salad

This was a healthy eating life saver for me! I made this salad on a Sunday and ate it all week. Sometimes as a side, I also had it on a bed of greens with sliced chicken and avacodo one night, in a wrap with cheese for lunch another day, and topped with scrambled eggs for breakfast another day. A great way to use your summer squash and get your vegees in!

Wheatberry, Black bean & Edamame Salad

I found this simple recipe in an advertisement for red wine vinegar, the picture was so beautiful I had to make it, twice in 2 weeks! My kids dig it too!

Curried Quinoa Salad

Another Clean Eating favorite from Oxygen Magazine...

Sweet Potato Salad

My market carries a version of this with too much dressing. I found this recipe in the South Beach Diet cookbook, good stuff!

Beany Salad

Found this in the Sunday paper, a favorite! Full of whole grains, beans, vegees and flavor!

Mustard Vinaigrette

I love this dressing on salads, to season rice bowls and marinate chicken & fish. I store this dressing in my pantry (dark & cool) so the oil doesn't harden in the fridge...if you plan ahead you can refrigerate, just pull the dressing out ahead of time to serve at room temperature.

Flaxseed oil salad dressing

My whole family loves this dressing (even my hubby whose a blue cheese guy)! Easy to make, I double the recipe for my family...and half a serving (1Tablespoon) goes a long way! You can find flaxseed oil in the supplement section of the health food isle.

Cauliflower "rice"

My family thought I was serving rice the first few times I served this! This is a very simple side dish that can be easily jazzed up with chopped fresh herbs or few spicy sprinkles of whatever strikes your fancy. Easy to re-heat and a nice way to make sure that your evening side dishes are more vegetable based!

Krispy Kale

My favorite snack! I found this a great substitution for chips with my lunch and my 4 year old always tastes the "dino food." Kale is the powerhouse vegee!

Zuccini Hummus

Both vegan and a raw food recipe, this zuccini hummus was a big hit with my kids at home! A great vegetable based snack, use raw veggees to dip (I like celery) or pile on a romaine or endive leaves and top with veggees for a healthy lunch.

Super Oatmeal

This is the oatmeal I eat on my most active days of the week, it is Super!

Real Food Brownies

From the Healthiest Meals on Earth cookbook (Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS) this baked goodie is a real goodie, for breakfast, snack, pre/post workout meal or dessert...Enjoy!


Incredible! (1 rating)
Cranberry Oat Cereal Bars

Adapted from a Martha Stewart FOOD recipe, I added sunflower seeds for more crunch & protein. Enjoy

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Apples

This is a Cooking Light recipe, easy and delicious! Note that it serves only 2 so adjust for your group!

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

I found this recipe in Martha Stewart's everyday food, but cut some of the brown sugar and all of the butter to keep it both tasty and healthy! Enjoy!

Pumpkin-Sweet Potato Soup

This EASY to throw together soup is from CSPinet's Nutrition Action Newsletter. A tasty way to get those vegees in!

Celery Soup

I found this recipe in People Magazine, purported to be a favorite of Jennifer Anniston (if that does it for you:). A tasty way to consume some vegees you might not consider much. I've served this at parties and its a big hit!

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

A great protein and fiber packed snack alone, or use as a topping for salads and soups.

This basic quiche recipe is designed so that you can alter the 1 cup of shredded cheese to taste and add vegees and lean protein to your taste.

Basic Muffin recipe

Alter your spices, extract, fruit, juice etc. to customize this basic muffin recipe to make a healthy and filling muffin.
