You can make with real potatoes or use mix.

Potato salad HM

The potatoes I used are ones I grew in my garden. I try to grow things that I know that I will use when they are ready. The green onions are from my garden also.

Broiled Tomatoes with cheese

Did not want my tomatoes to go bad as they were starting to get soft. Good way to get your Fruit or Veggie in depending on which you want to call it.

Chicken in white sauce

I like making this so the chicken is soft and brakes off the bone. It is something I can start in the morning and have ready for dinner being I am home all day.

Granola Bars with Nuts and Banana Chips

I like trying to make different bars that are healthy and I know what is in them. I add what ever I want and have on hand in my home.

This is good for when you are somewhat hungry but just want a quick snack. Very filling. Good calories, low fat, good fiber and protein.

Saw a video on line for this and tried it.

This is what you can do with left overs.

Lettuce, Carrots, Pepers, Onion, Eggs, & Chicken Salad

Needed to replenish my veggies from last week. Took all this past weeks veggies & made a salad.

Grape,Apple, Banaba Salad

Being I wanted to get my fruit in I had all of the ingredients on hand. Didn't want to add sugar but did. This makes a good Breakfast fruit or just a snack. It also will help when you are craving something to eat.

One of my team members had this as a blog. It had peas, salt and butter. I omitted then as I wanted a lower calorie amount.

Ziti Pasta Salad

This salad I decided to make as I had left over pasta. I needed to also add to my fiber & protein to my diet. This way I get everything in it that I like & is healthy.

Ida Veggie soup

This is just another veggie soup that I made. You can make it in a crock pot also.
I separate the veggies and broth so I can make it into 2 cup
servings. I put 2 cups pg broth in each container. Then go back and add 2 cups of the veggies. This way it is consistent.
Then I freeze each container. Then when frozen transfer to my seal a meal bags for later on.

Soup is so easy to make with just what you have in your ref.

Veggie & Bean Salad

This is something I just through together, being I was craving Veggies. It is a nice healthy snack or just something for lunch.

On the beans. I cook then well in advance and freeze them in containers for later dated. It works out so you don't have to do them the same day.

Ida Hardy veggie soup *

Couldn't find calories for my home made Turkey or Beef stock. I cook up all my different beans and freeze each one. Then put them into bags in the freezer for later use. It works out so much easier for later use. I do the same for all my stocks.

I like to just throw together soups in the spare of the moment. I donít like wasting any veggie I have in the ref, as their so expensive now a day. The oat bran will thicken the soup so make sure you watch it and stir it . You may have to add more water if it is to thick.
Season to taste. I do not use salt in any of my cooking.
I really hope you enjoy.

Ida Cabbage Chicken Soup

I like to make soups just by adding different things. No rime or reason to what I put in. I feel it is much more healthy then can soup.

I also freeze it in 2-cup containers for later dates. After it is frozen I transfer to seal a meal bage for longer storage.

I hope that you enjoy any of my soups. I try to keep them as low in sodium as I can for people along with myself that have heart trouble.

I like to just throw things together and see what it comes out like. I had this with some brown rice.
