Aromatic Veggie Saute... Brussel Sprouts, Fennel, & Leeks

The combination of Brussel Sprouts, Fennel, & Leeks, was a wonderful find for my family. Then when added Fennugreek, the flavor parring between the veggies and seasoning is truly spectacular.

Satisfyingly Spicy Cabbage Soup

This is my take on the "Fat Burning Cabbage Soup". Super high in flavor and very low in calories, 39 per serving to be exact!

Spinach Egg White Wrap(ish)

This was really a wonderful QUICK breakfast/afternoon snack that I figured out. Much better than that thing they try to serve you at Starbucks, if I do say so myself ;)
** To make things go a little quicker in the morning, if you are trying to get out the door, separate the eggs and toss the spinach with the garlic the night before. You can have your food done and ready to eat by the time you done making your coffee ;)

Best Tuna Fish Sandwich EVER! No Mayo...

I've been making my tuna fish sandwiches like this since I was a kid. I have always despised mayo, so this is a great alternative if you're trying to cut back or you're like me and hate it.

Pineapple Orange Julius

OMG! This is sooo good. Seriously! Myself and my kids inhaled it. We had it for lunch with some crackers and a side of carrots! Awesome!

Huevos Rancheros

The Ranchero Sauce is a seperate recipe. Make the sauce, chop the veggies and store in sealable containers to make breakfast a snap. Don't be discouraged by the calorie count, with this recipe and the Ranchero Sauce recipe the total calories are 355.4, but remember... That includes all condiments such as sour cream and corn tortillas and is made with a whole egg. Just keep in mind that this is a complete dish, it is not necessary to add anything to the meal. Your personal substitutions can lower that calorie number as well.
