Potato and Leek Gratin

I've created a healthy twist on gratin by combining some highly rated recipes from allrecipes with another gratin recipe from SparkPeople that didn't have enough detail in the recipe for me to follow/didn't look creamy enough/didn't want to use egg. First result is surprisingly v. tasty!

Quinoa Salad

Yummy summer salad is delicious chilled on a hot day! Lots of protein and not high in calories. Serving size is about 1 cup.

Spicy Beans and Rice

My second concoction of a vegetarian sloppy joe mix - 100 calories of protein, low-cal, filling goodness. I love this on a toasted english muffin or in place of a beef burger, but it might shine best as burrito filling, or a healthy side dish for a bbq! I can get away with bringing this as a side dish to a bbq or celebration, and then eat it in place of the meaty/cheesy main dish served. :)

As my second concoction, the consistency of this recipe is more solid (less runny) and a bit more spicy (make less spicy by omitting or reducing chilis/spices)

Serving size is 1/2 cup. Makes about 15 servings! (Perfect for a crowd, leftover lunches, or freezing some for quick lunches later, especially in low-carb tortillas!)

Rhubarb Applesauce Muffins

Healthy yummy muffins! Goes great with salad for a light lunch!

Skillet Veggie Lasagna

I wanted to calculate the calories for this awesome, pretty-healthy, easy to prepare and delicious recipe from the Food Network. I scaled back on the olive oil as well. Delish!

Lite Deluxe Veggie Pizza

Sometimes I make the dough perfectly and can stretch this recipe to 3 pizzas instead of 2. Since most of the toppings are veggies, it cuts the already-low calories down to a surprisingly low amount!

Spicy Sloppy VegJoes

Vegetarian sloppy joes without protein crumble or tofu - this one relies on rice and beans for substance, and veggies and spices for its kick of flavor and texture! Easy to make with what you already have in your kitchen - and so good that we had seconds without the buns! Feed a crowd or cut the recipe for a smaller crew.

Strawberry Vinaigrette

Looking for a way to use my ripe strawberries in a delicious and healthy way for dinner! Used this vinaigrette on spinach salad with chevre, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, almonds, and a little chicken sauted in vermouth! Amazing!

Creamy chicken and spinach enchiladas

This is inspired by another spark recipe with high ratings, but I wanted to add some veggies and use low carb tortillas and greek yogurt!

Honey and Nut Granola Bars

I've been perfecting my granola bar recipe and I think it's really getting there! Time to share!

Gourmet Veggie Pizza

Another yummy version of veggie pizza!

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread

I made some adjustments based on my carrot cakes that turned out so amazingly. Am total fan of natural/healthy ingredients, but not so much that only I like it! This yummy recipe makes a great healthy dessert when we have company. Can serve with cantaloupe or strawberries...yum :p

Whole Wheat and Honey Herb-licious Breadsticks!

Homemade, whole wheat breadsticks that taste amazing, you know exactly what's in them, and you can eat them without guilt! Best of all, they don't take long - no waiting forever for the dough to rise. (Also makes amazing pizza crust!)

Chocolate Raspberry Pudding

Delicious lunch or snack, alternative to a protein drink!

Ghirardelli Brownies

Ghirardelli brownies are my favorite but I wanted to try them with yogurt, couldn't find an exact recipe so I made my own! Used Greek nonfat yogurt, since that seems healthiest.

Nutty Granola

I wanted to use honey and lots of my favorite nuts in this granola

Veggie Pizza

Yummy quick whole wheat veggie pizza for dinner!
