This is just what I had on hand from the garden and preparations from other recipes. It turned out to be a wonderful mix of mild flavors with no condiments sauces or butter necessary.

Romano Eggplant Au Gratin

Old Fashioned Meatloaf

This meatloaf has alot of vegetables. It is very nutrtious.

No Cook Maple Chocolate Tofu Mousse

So quick and so easy. No sugar added. The calories per serving are more than similar recipes because the serving sizes are larger.

Super Gelatine

I just added a little extra protein and nail health to this jello.

Thrifty Southbeach Egg Cups To Go

It is often difficult and expensive to find low fat swiss cheese. So in this recipe I just use regular cheese only less than in the Southbeach Recipe.
Egg yolks do have some important nutrients and add a rich flavor so I do have a couple of whole eggs in this recipe. Using this mixture instead of egg substitues reduces the cost.
This turns out like little spinach soufles!

Nutrition Bomb Turkey And Adzuki Beans

This is a hearty meal that can really stretch the dollar.
Start this the night before you plan to serve it.
Its real easy. My guess was that two drumsticks would yield one pound of meat off the bone.

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

This is your standard Mushroom chicken recipe on a bed of celery, mushrooms and onion. To be served over rice or pasta.
Very Easy and Economical.
