Portabella Sandwiches or Burgers

I would call this a fun-burger.  The texture of a thick, juicy mushroom is very satisfying, and works well in a bun!  Fix it up with burger toppings and you'e got an enjoyable meal!

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

Be brave! An unplanned salad can be just as delicious as one from a recipe. Salads with a simple dressing are great vehicles for leftovers and makeovers, and often turn out tastier than you ever expected. Getting raw vegetables in everyday will fill you up and boost your immune system, so try experimenting. Bell pepper? Tomatoes? Fruit? Beans? Pasta? Throw it together!

Breakfast Scramble

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

Oat-So-Sweet Potato Bake (or Yams)

This sweet and filling savory breakfast is novel but comforting. You can bake a dish on Sunday and have it for breakfast during the week - it stores for up to a week! If can be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats, and it's interchangeable (and also just as sweet!) with yams.

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.
