Healthy Whole Grain Zucchini Bread

A healthy, low-sugar alternative to the typical sugar-bomb zucchini bread. This one is super moist and delicious!

Cucumber Limeade

The world's most refreshing summer drink!

Sports Drink

Sports drinks like Gatorade are GREAT for refueling after heavy sweating, but you are paying boatloads for basically colored, flavored sugar/salt water! Make your own using stuff you already have and stay away from all the chemicals.

Summer Veggie Soup

Great low-cal soup to use up excess summer garden veggies.

Basil Scalloped Tomatoes with Croutons

A great way to use up the summer surplus of tomatoes. Don't try this with less than stellar tomatoes. The homegrown tomato flavor is super important in this dish. As is the fresh basil. This recipe is adapted from a number of places (Ina Garten, Smitten Kitchen, Oh She Glows) but I made it my own.

Peach Cobbler

I don't peel my peaches because I love the color they add and the extra fiber. If you don't use organic peaches, be sure to peel them before preparing the cobbler. Also, if unripened peaches are used, be sure to up the sugar for the filling.

Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

I worked for months and months to perfect a whole-wheat pizza dough, and I think I've finally found it. We love it, love it, love it! This makes enough dough for two large pizzas. We normally use one, freeze the other. To use the frozen one, thaw on the counter and then place in off oven on a pizza pan. Pour a recently boiled kettle of water in a roasting pan under the dough and close the oven. The warm, moist air reproofs the frozen dough.

Choco Chia Maca Smoothie

A great small superfood smoothie for a mid-afternoon boost. Chocolately and delish!

Whole Wheat Herbed Focaccia

A great bread to go with all of your Italian dishes! For a lighter version, cut back on the olive oil and leave out the cheese.

Three Bean Turkey Chili with Vegetables

This makes a massive amount of chili and freezes fantastically. It's packed with veggies and three different kinds of beans, so it's full of great vitamins and nutrients.

This recipe is also amazing as a vegetarian dish. Just take out the ground turkey.

This is an adapted Cooking Light recipe.

Mama's Red Beans and Rice

My Mama loves her Southern food, here is one of her favorite New Orleans dishes, but with some healthy changes.

Energy-boosting Trail Mix

This goes together super fast and packs a great energy-boosting punch. Plus, the dark chocolate is not only heart-healthy but also is a great treat! I love this after a workout.

Vegetable Turkey Soup

We love, love, love this soup! It's hearty, filling, and comes together super quickly. For dinner, we double up and have two servings each with a side salad or a side sandwich. For lunch, one serving will keep your full all day!
