Pineapple Mango Salsa with Cilantro

Lots of cilantro! Eat with grilled chicken, rice, tacos, or even alone on crackers.

Guilt-free Carrot Cake Smoothie

This will satisfy your craving for frosted carrot cake, but without all that extra sugar or processed ingredients!

This delicious smoothie takes all of 10 minutes, and uses only real ingredients that you probably already have at home.

Delicious dessert that is super easy to make. No processed sugar. Vegan, Paleo. Cholesterol-free, high protein, high in healthy fats.

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Pasta Salad

This is an adaptation from a Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad Recipe. It substitutes real foods for the seasoning packet, as well as whole grain pasta for white.

The Ultimate Carrot Cake

This cake is fantastically moist and super easy to make. Recipe is for the cake only. See link below for the frosting.

Mascarpone Frosting (for Ultimate Carrot Cake)

Crockpot Creamy Chicken & Pasta

Easy Crockpot creamy chicken recipe.

Mascarpone Stuffed Chicken & Fingerling Potatoes

The intense flavor of the herbs & cheese pair well with potatoes. Similar recipes use only herbes fines (tarragon, parsley, chives, and chervil) along with white wine instead of beer, and mashed potatoes as a side dish.

Stir Fry

This is a pretty versatile recipe. You can easily substitute your favorite vegetables (snow peas, baby corn, green beans, water chestnuts, peppers, onions, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, etc). You can also substitute beef, chicken, or pork for the shrimp, but I recommend cooking them ahead of time before adding them to the dish. What gives this dish it's great flavor is the oyster sauce, coconut oil, and rice vinegar. The Asian Essence and other spices just kick it up a notch.

Meat-free, Wheat, Low-fat Crockpot Lasagna

No meat, mostly organic, wheat, low fat. (Does contain 1 egg - optional.)

I highly recommend using fresh, organic products whenever possible. Not only are they significantly better for your health, they also taste better!

Stuffed, Breaded, and Baked Squash or Zucchini Flowers

This recipe can easily be adapted to include a variety of "stuffings". I used sour cream and parmesan, but goat cheese and ricotta would also be delicious.

Shown in picture: flowers, porkloin (with teryaki sauce) and mixed field greens with strawberries, sunflower seeds, bacon bits, and honey mustard dressing.

Healthy & Delicious Chocolate Cake

This cake is moist, chocolately, and not lacking on taste at all despite being good for you! Can easily be made vegan my substituting the milk for soy or nut, and the butter for margarine.

Grilled Chicken & Avocado Panini

A light panini sandwich made with grilled chicken, creamy avocado spread, and provalone.

Works best with sourdough bread, but 2 slices adds an additional 250 calories.

Walnut, Fig, Goat Cheese, Honey Crostini

The perfect mix of sweet & salty, crunchy & creamy.
