Fresh Fruit Tart

I always try to use fresh berries from the garden for this beautiful and quick snack.

Creamy Ranch

This traditional American dressing can be used as a dressing or a dip, depending on the amount of water added

Kathy’s Kale Chips

Here's a standard recipe for a tasty, crunchy treat that is a good alternative to chips.
Kale is a darling of plant-based eating, because as a cruciferous, colorful vegetable of the cabbage family, it is a powerhouse of antioxidents and other phytonutrients, which fight against disease - cancer, inflammatory, as well as vascular.  But hey, all cruciferous vegetables are powerhouses!
Consider drinking water with this lovely, crunchy snack since this is a dried whole food.

Walnut Mushroom Pâté - Fake Chopped Liver

So easy yet flavorful - Use this savory spread as a filling for wraps or sandwiches, on top of rice snaps or oil-free whole-grain crackers, or on a whole-grain bagel. 
Experiment with spices or chopped celery, gr or peppers to add chunk, to make it your own!

PBL Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Here is a filling and satisfying breakfast on-the-go, or a perfect snack to stash at work!

Hummus Plate

Hummus or Middle Eastern chickpea spread is so satisfying and versitile, as a snack with veggies and rice snaps, in a wrap or sandwich, a stuffing for mushroom appetizers, or diluted for a salad dressing!  It's easy to keep it low-fat by abstaining from adding oils.  If you need to control weight, avoid further added fat by eliminating the tahini (sesame butter).

Kitchen Sink Salad

What do you have around the kitchen? 

Salads with a simple dressing are great vehicles for leftovers and makeovers. 

Getting raw vegetables in everyday will fill you up and boost your immune system!

Breakfast Smoothie

This is a great tool to pack in vegetables and fruits and thus antioxidants and nutrients.  Please note that overall, we are meant to chew our food, allowing enzymes in the mouth to start breaking down carbohydrates, and exercise needed facial muscles.  Souse this gem-of-a-recipe mindfully, and not everyday.

Further, because the blender breaks down fiber, carbohydrate enters the blood stream rapidly, which may not be good for those with metabolic syndrome, glucose or insulin sensitivity, overweight or obesity, or vascular disease.
