Pasta Primavera Soup

A great and easy lunch recipe from last night's dinner!  Add a salad if you can.

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).

Mock Tuna Salad

This is a very satisfying alternative to a tuna salad, that can be used in sanwiches, wraps or salads.  Make more than you think, as it goes fast!

Carrot Dogs

I love this creation!  Who would have guessed that the humble carrot can be all dressed up to be a fancy dog!

A side of baked beans, and any frozen or steamed veggies makes a meal.  (Salads are always welcome too.)

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 Scramble

A satisfying, dense dish reminiscent of scrambled eggs.  The more veggies you add, the lighter it becomes.

Oat-So-Sweet Potato Bake

This sweet and filling savory breakfast is novel but comforting.

Bake a dish on Sunday and have it for breakfast during the week - stores for up to a week!

Morning Brown Rice Bowl

 

Morning porridge does not have to be oatmeal!  Other grains offer nutritional and taste variety.  Get in the habit of making a big pot of brown rice and use some, freeze some and keep in the fridge up to 4 days for leftovers!

Cook brown rice until very soft, or use leftover brown rice. 

Don't forget to top with fruit!

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.  

Quinoa with Compote

 
A lovely alternative to oatmeal.  Quinoa is a gluten-free grain with a great nutritional profile!

Quick and Easy Oatmeal

Get this recipe down and use it every week!
Use thick rolled oats, or regular.  The compromised fiber in instant allows for the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrate too quickly into sugar and can spike blood sugar or insulin levels.

Raspberry Vinaigrette

This dressing is delicious over a fruity breakfast salad, such as a bed of mesclun greens topped with strawberries and pecans.
