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

Kale chips are becoming more and more popular, but have you noticed how much a bag in the store costs? There’s no need to break the bank to have this tasty, crunchy treat that’s a superb alternative to potato chips.

Walnut Mushroom Pâté

So easy yet flavorful - I make this all the time an use it as a savory spread or filling for wraps or sandwiches. It's delicious on top of rice snaps or oil-free whole-grain crackers, or on a whole-grain bagel. 
Experiment with spices or chopped celery, ground pepper or bell peppers to add chunk and make it your own!

Sustainable Oatmeal Anytime Bars

You’re launched on a lifetime of great food and great snack! Here is a filling and satisfying breakfast on-the-go, or a perfect homemade bar to stash at work. It never gets boring, as you can rotate through a variety of add-ins, like apricots, dates, cranberries or figs, pecans or walnuts, peanuts, or the occasional chocolate chips. Store-bought bars with isolated soy protein need not apply.

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

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 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.
