Recipes I've Shared:

Sweet Potato Frozen Breakfast Burrito

A great low calorie filling breakfast. A little sweet and a little spicy. I make a batch of these, wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze. I microwave them on 50% power for 2.5 minutes to re-heat.

Breakfast Bowl - Mexican Style

Make on Sunday and have through the week, just store in the fridge or freezer. A lower calorie alternative to a breakfast burrito

Herbed Trout Poached in Vermouth

A delicate preparation that let's the trout's great subtle flavor shine through.

Delicious served over polenta with an herby salad.

Written for two servings, but can be easily halved or doubles for additional/fewer people.

Frozen Chicken & Rice Bowls

Just like what you buy in the freezer section except healthier & cheaper. I've calculated my per-unit cost at about $1.40 per serving.

I make this in a big batch and then portion into freezer safe packaging and take out as needed for quick lunches/dinners.

Keeps in the freezer for at least 2 months

Veggie & Egg Breakfast sandwich

A whole serving of vegetables in each sandwich, plus plenty of protein to start your day. Easily keeps you full until lunch/mid-morning snack.

I make a batch of these on the weekend, wrap each cooked egg mixture in cling wrap and keep in the fridge for use during the week.

Homemade INSTANT oatmeal - banana/almond

Make your own packages of instant oatmeal at home, customize to your liking, cost effective and less processed than the stuff in the box.

Stretch your meat - turkey sliders

Use veggies, startches & tofu to turn your single package of ground turkey into an entree for 16 lunches.

Curried mixed sliders

These sliders have a mixture of savory meat and healthy grains & beans. I typically have one or two on brown rice with a bit of soy sauce for my lunch. EASY TO FREEZE! A little bit of work on a Sunday makes it easy to grab lunch before you head out in the morning.

Feel free to use different spice mixtures, I've used Curry, Garam Masala (another indian spice) and salt free chili powder... each of which adds a slightly different taste

Bulgar & Greens Salad

I add to this salad 1 cup of my "Super Food Green Sauce" (search for it under side dishes) You could use any dressing you want, just be sure to add the nutrition info. It's easy to turn into an entree by topping with a little grilled chicken breast or tempeh.

Super Food Green Sauce

Full of veggies (approximately 10 servings total!), this "sauce" makes a great accompaniment to a variety of dishes, use it as a dressing in a grain based salad, to top fish or chicken or toss with pasta.

Packed with nutrients- Vitamin A, C & E, Folate, Iron, & Magnesium. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids... also delicious!

Fancy Brunch Potatoes - with asparagus

Makes two servings for a full breakfast, or omit the eggs and serve as a side

Penne Sardinia

This is a fabulous quick dish. It doesn't taste fishy at all, the sardines just lend a nice brinieness to it.

mushroom veggie saute

For the mushrooms I love to get the small (1 ounce) bag of dried wild mushrooms. I rehydrate them and slice for the saute, save the mushroom juice for another use! It's great for a broth to cook rice or pasta in.

Great with chicken & rice for a super healthy stir fry.

Winter Squash Turkey Miniloafs

Turkey Mini meatloafs, low in fat with lot's of flavor.

Easy to make lunches, fix a batch on Sunday and you'll have lunches ready to go all week.

Turkey, egg and cheese Breakfast Sandwich

5 minutes from start to finish! A complete breakfast, lot's of protein and 4 grams of fiber on your way out the door, just put it in a paper towel and go.

Lexy's Whole Bowl

This is a version of one of my favorite cart foods, only cheaper and healthier. The rice and chicken are usually leftovers, if you have to prepare these it will obviously increase the cooking time. I use my own Pico recipe for the salsa, you can certainly use packaged salsa though.

I make enough of this for a week's worth of lunches and have it everyday, YUM!

Orange Chicken

A low fat option of a classic

Maple Lemon Dressing

Great on salads and vegetables

Tomato and Corn Soup with Wild Rice

Delicious concoction of goodness, 100% vegan, lot's of fiber and protein!

Chickpea Salad

A delicious lunch dish with chips, or pile on half a whole wheat bagel, very filling
