Swedish Apple Pie


Very Good (2 ratings)
Smoothie - Kale, apple, banana, parsley

Great for a quick super healthy breakfast option. The banana and apple give it sweetness. Since this is blended and not juiced it also has some substance to it. I use it as a compliment to an egg sandwich or I double up the serving size for a breakfast or snack by itself. You can add flax or chia seeds for some added nutrition.

Ham & Cheese wrap

Nutrious & delicous

Kashi 7 Grain Waffles w/ Almond Butter

I was looking for breakfast recipes that fit the same calorie/protien/fiber/fat combo's as Nutrisystem in an effort to by-pass over-paying for prepared/preserved foods. Fast, easy and tasty!


This is the best veggie lasagna recipe I have ever tried. It is loaded with vegetables and still satisfies that need for comfort food on those chillier nights.

This is a very simple sandwich I eat in the mornings that fits with in the guidelines given by my trainer. High protien, high fiber, low fat. The bacon adds needed flavor.

This is a simple, healthy and delicious breakfast option given to me by my trainer. She also puts slivered almonds on it however I omitted that in this recipe.

Black beans & veggie's

I am into the 20 "Superfoods" therefore I wanted something that incorporated some of the foods on the superfood list and tastes great. This recipe is simple, healthy and satisfying. Everything I was looking for:) Goes well over rice and adding a little cheddar cheese gives it a kick.

Chicken Salad

Left over grilled chicken breast works perfectly for this meal!

Patty's Pumpkin Pudding

Taken from the Superfoods HealthStyle book written by Steven G. Pratt and Kathy Matthews. Tasty, sugar content is a little higher then I would prefer otherwise this dish has some great nutritional qualities. Tastes like a crustless pumpking pie.
