Tropical Breakfast Smoothie

Fruity taste, I added oats to beef up the nutrition

Cranberry Banana fruit butter

This is a tangy tart and sweet fruit butter that is great on banana bread, cranberry bread or toast. The interesting thing is that both fruits are distinctive in the flavor, first you taste the cranberry then the banana.

Pumpkin Bread

Grandma's family favorite

Lentil Soup with Ham and Mushrooms

Tasty version with barley and mushrooms for flavor. May use broth in place of water, just adjust for extra sodium content!

Rae's breakfast sandwich

An alternative at home for the "egg mcmuffin". The calories are close to the Egg McMuffin, but the fiber is twice the amount.

Without the Cheese the Calories drop to 226, fat to 8.2 g, carbs to 24.7 and protein to 15.5. This is higher in sodium

Poor man's candy

You can use either Vanilla or Chocolate flavored Almond Bark. This is a treat, obviously, and not a great option very often, but great around the holidays, I have also added coconut flakes to the mix. You can play with the proportions, if you like more pretzels, etc

Pop's Chili Verde

My grandfathers chili verde.
We traditionally ate this with some flour tortillas. I also like to eat it on some rice.

Gramma's cole slaw

Sweet and tangy coleslaw

Ground Pork and Quinoa stuffed bell peppers

If your children don't like bell peppers, you can make meatballs with the filling instead. It is a bit moist, so if making meatballs you may want to add bread crumbs to thicken it.
