Vegetable Soup in Beef Broth

I found a recipe on Yahoo! Food (
p-76222985910.html), but didn't have a few of the ingredients on hand. I made some substitutions and was very happy with the results. The spices used in this soup really bring it to life!

Chocolate-Covered Blueberry Protein Smoothie

Chocolate-covered blueberries in a glass (but so much better for you)!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Brandy Slush

No steeping of tea required for this recipe! Not adding more sugar in addition to what is already in the concentrates also helps to make this version a bit more workable with most diets.

Caramel Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

Perfectly complements apples, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, or any other fruit you like! My family loves this, and it's a hit whenever we have gatherings.

Fruit n' Yogurt Smoothie Pops

A nice frozen treat -- perfect for hot summer days!

Veggie Calzone

This recipe is a little time-consuming with all the prep, but it comes together easily and tastes yummy!

BBQ Chicken & Rice

My mom made this a lot when I was younger, and I loved it! Boiling the chicken (vs. browning in oil) reduces the fat content, but retains the flavor.

Very Good (1 rating)
Peanut Butter Balls

This is a good alternative to the versions with tons of sugar in them.

Banana Cookies

This recipe is a very healthy way to use up overripe bananas, and my kids love them! (I do, too!)
