Light Dressing

I still like this with Dijon mustard added.

Mom's French Vinaigrette

From years of living well in France, this and a good baguette are what I miss most. Many people think mixing the oil with the flavors emulsifies them, but they are mistaken. vinegar is and emulsifier. Mix flavors with it first then whisk in the oil to reduce separation.

Energy Salad

The Fit Staple.

New York Goodwich

Reduce fat by reducing mayo or eliminating avocado

Cauliflower Toastie

You know how it is when you go into a kitchen and smell a grilled cheese sandwich? Try this instead and get a whopping delicious service of vegetables instead of cheese.

Caesar Salad without Parmesan

from my favorite diet, Fit For Life

Vegetarian Stew for Two

Serving this with 2 slices of buttered whole grain toast guarantees a delicious vegetarian meal

Crusty Butter-Crumb Vegetables

Even my kids love this one.

Picadillo

Family dish from Cuba, this is our favorite. Leftovers make great taco filling or pizza topping.

Potato Boat

This is a main course. Combine this with a meat dish if you have hungry men around or just ran a marathon. And a great way to get vitamin A rich foods into kids.

Country Corn Chowder

Very satisfying corn chowder. If you like you may add 1/4 cup heavy cream. Delicious.

Mediterranean Rice Salad

Serve this as a dinner in a dish with sliced pineapples on the side. It's large and delicious.

Perfectly Combined Sandwich

My favorite sandwich bar none, it is even better with alfalfa sprouts instead of lettuce.
