Recipes I've Shared:

Pumpkin Cherry Smoothie

Add all ingredients together and a packet of stevia plus pumpkin pie spice in a blender with one cup of ice. Great breakfast smoothie or post work-out!

Sweet and Salty Mix

Delicious cereal mix for parties or gift favor bags.

NKZ's Cranberry Carrot Cake Bread

This can be used for cake (with frosting), muffins, or bread! It is amazingly healthy and delicious.

NKZ's Cabbage Lentil Soup

This soup is easy with a stew-like texture reminding me of Polish Goblaki. The Tomato and Cabbage take on Lentil Soup is delicious.

NKZ's Zesty Lasagna

This take on lasagna is ultra easy, low in fat, calories, and is easy to pop in the oven for future meals! It is also delicious without meat and takes less time in the oven than most. Using Low-Fat Cottage or Part-Skim Ricotta cheese will minimize the calories without sacrificing flavor or texture. I like to use a glass bread pan in the oven that can go straight into the refridgerator and freezer for later. This recipe is super easy to prepare and pop in the oven if you're cooking a couple of other things for the week at the same time as I try to do.

Also, the cheese mixture is what makes the meal. The added oregano and garlic salt make the cottage cheese **excellent** for stuffed shells, preparing a cannelloni - like appetizer/finger food, or dip for veggies (much healthier than sour cream and onion dip).

NZ's Healthy Chili

This Hearty Chili is my spin on my Dad's amazing chili I grew up eating. Preparation can be extremely simple & healthy or low sodium with store bought ingredients. It is economically friendly and yields enough for a large group of people, sharing with neighbors, and freezing. It is zesty due to its variety of beans, added vegetables, and versatility. Try it with with lean ground round (93-7%), lean turkey, or no meat at all. The best part is there is minimal risk of this recipe turning into a disaster!
