Spring is in the air!

Spring has sprung and it time to change up the menu a bit. I love to eat tomato soup during the spring because it is a light meal, yet extemely satisfying.  If it is really hot out, you can also eat the soup cold, OR pour the soup into an ice cube tray and use [...]

Healthy Tuna Melt

When experimenting with a healthy tuna melt I wanted it to be tasty but also low in fat, low in calories and full of veggies, because veggies need to be in every meal. So here’s my version, I think you’ll find that it satisfies your tuna melt desire without sacrificing your healthy eating desire! Healthy Tuna Melt To make tuna [...]

Winter Squash and Apple Soup

Sweet, salty and tangy…creamy, crunchy and cheesy…sometimes a contrast of flavors and textures really makes a dish sing! I’ve never made a soup with apples before, but my friend Julie introduced me to a fantastic winter squash and apple soup.  It is really thick, smooth and healthy, and the apples give it a nice, tangy [...]

Lemony “Cheese” Cake (Vegan!)

I was having dinner at a restaurant last night with some friends, and they were sharing a yummy looking slice of cheesecake for dessert. Now, I don’t do well with dairy, and I tried to convince myself that I just didn’t want it, but of course I kind of did… So, with cheesecake on my mind [...]

Comfort Food that’s good for you? Yep, healthy egg salad.

Alot of people like egg salad because it’s tasty and versatile, but generally speaking it is pretty bad for you. HOWEVER, it’s easy to healthify, inexpensive, and you can have it on a whole wheat english muffin for breakfast… on rye bread or gluten free toast for lunch… or on rice crackers for a snack.  Top it [...]

Kale Frittata

Eggs are a delightful brunch time favorite, but lets step it up a notch, shall we? I’m a huge fan of frittatas, they’re beautiful, light, delicious, and easy to prepare.  Also, the combinations of treats to go inside of them are almost endless. Kale Frittata 1 bunch kale (no stems) 1 sweet onion 6 cloves of garlic 1/5 lb [...]

Indian Spiced Salmon

I’ve been trying to eat lots of salmon since it’s so high in Omega 3’s, which are really good for you, in case you were wondering! The trick to cooking salmon is not to overcook it, but to remove it from the pan/grill/oven when it’s a little less done than you like.  It will keep cooking [...]

Spicy Sweet Potato “Fries”

Sweet potato fries are giving good old french fries a run for their money!  AND sweet potatoes are healthier than white potatoes. Apparently a sweet potato is not technically a potato, but who cares about that? What we do care about is that they have more fiber, more vitamins A and C, and a lower glycemic [...]
