This smoothie is delicious. This is not my recipe! I got this from ALLRECIPES.COM, recipe submitted by: ASTROPHE. This will be my mid morning snack from now on!

Mariela's Iced Coffee

This is a quick iced coffee recipe I came up with after having some at Starbucks. It's easy and you can use your day old coffee, Splenda to reduce sugar, etc. You can add extracts to suit your taste!

Hershey's Chocolate cake (1 bowl )

I love chocolate cake. And when I needed a chocolate fix quick and couldn't find a cake mix, well I found this recipe (at the back of hershey's cocoa) Delicious and moist and chocolatey! The recipe calls for 2 cups of sugar, I used 1 1/4 and thought it was just the right amount of sweetness. Next time I'm subbing applesauce for oil.

Mariela's Tuna & Rotini Salad

I learned this recipe from the back of a pasta box when I used to work at a grocery store. It had all kinds of pastas and I really can't remember what type of pasta was used with this recipe. I make this with Rotini. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

P90X Level 1 diet

Mariela's Lentil Soup

This is the way my mom taught me how to make a lentil soup. I love lentils!

Mariela's Cabbage & Turkey

This is a dish my mother used to make. I've substituted the ground beef with ground turkey to make it better for you! I like to accompany it with brown rice.

My Chicken

I like to do this with left over cooked chicken. Can be done with Rotisserie chicken too!

This is another great way to eat tilapia fish! I love it! My mom showed me how to do this fish. I like to accompany it with some brown rice and steamed veggies. enjoy!

Mariela's Chicken & Veggie Stir Fry

I love doing this dish. Its a great way to add lots of veggies into your meal. I like to accompany it with rice.

Mariela's "Calabazitas"

This is the calabasitas recipe my mom always made. She would sprinkle it with cheese and let it melt and it's delicious! You can add cheese (mozzarella would be my recommendation or queso Oaxaca) if you like. The cheese is not calculated in the calorie count.

Mariela's Turkey Burgers

This are my turkey burgers adapted from the way I do my beef burgers. I love these! The soy sauce helps the turkey so it's doesn't dry out. I have them with no bun, with lots of lettuce and tomato. Hope you enjoy.

Family Chicken Soup (Mexican Style)

This is a chicken soup I am used to eating at my house! Its super delicious! Lots of veggies, really fill you up and low in calories! My son loves this soup. Hope you like it too!

Berrylicious Activia Fruit Smoothie

Find yourself a little hungry in between meals? I made this my personal mid morning meal to keep me fueled until lunch! You always change the flavor of the yogurt, or the berries! Make it your creation! (great for digestion too ;)

Peanut Butter Split Smoothie

This recipe is from Ellie Krieger's Cookbook, The Food You Crave. I love her recipes and I always watched her on Food Network and I finally got her book. This is one of my favorite recipes.

This is a very filling and delicious smoothie! I love to have one after hard workouts.
