Venezuelan Black Beans and Rice

The traditional combination of rice and beans together makes a nice pilaf dish, with many varieties across the world, including this one! Make plenty for dinner, as the extra is a great filling for wraps made for tomorrow's lunch! Note that there are no health needs to eat rice and beans together, it just tastes good.
 

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).

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!
