Baked Salmon Meatballs With Creamy Avocado Sauce

Here is  a recipe that I used for a client recently for lunch but this would also be great as a snack or an appetizer.  I was a little skeptical but  pleasantly surprised!  You can make them bite size for a party or a little larger if you are using for a meal.   Really yummy and the avocado cream with the chipotle seasoning adds a little smokey flavor with depth.  For bite size you do not even need a dollop of the sauce.  All you really need is a teaspoon of the sauce.  Try this!  You will be delighted you did.  Serve them at your Super Bowl party for a healthy snack!!

Guiltless Flatbread With Roasted Eggplant

Here is a great recipe that is gluten free, nutritious and really delicious.  It would be a perfect snack  for your Super Bowl party and will  help you stay on track.  No one will know it is gluten free.  You can serve this with anything where you would use pita bread.  You can even add a little protein powder for some extra energy.  Just make sure you adjust the other flours to accommodate the protein and add a little lemon zest if you use vanilla.  Lemon goes well with rosemary and will help keep it on the savory side.  Make it in a cast iron skillet for best results.  It will go so fast you made need two of them!!!

Garlic Lemon Broccoli

This Garlic Lemon Broccoli dish is not any ordinary broccoli dish. It's simplicity may be deceiving.   But try this and I promise the broccoli will disappear in minutes maybe even before it makes it to the table. Adds a delicious twist to one of our favorite vegetables and goes so well with any protein.  You can even add a little red pepper flakes if you like a little heat.  

Steak Diane

Steak Diane will taste like you have been cooking all day but it is so easy to make and will leave your guest's mouth watering for more.  This would be good on any beef steak, bison steak, venison or elk steaks.  You can even put it on burgers to elevate them.  Yummy!

Hearty Kale Salad

This hearty kale salad with a mixture of textures and colors will brighten up any table and start your year off deliciously happy.  It is packed with anti-oxidants to start your New Year off with a pep in your step. The dressing is light and the lemon brightens it up and also helps tenderize the kale and brussels sprouts.  Add a protein and you have a complete meal!

Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

This recipe is gluten free and dairy free.  They give you a little taste of the holidays and fall.  They have about 90 calories per pancake and 8 grams of protein.  Add it to your breakfast instead of gluten free toast.  It also be can be a great mid-morning snack.

Classic Thai Red Curry

This is the easiest recipe and so delicious.  I think it is better than the yellow curry Thai dish.  You can add a little heat by adding a Thai chili or a sliced Serrano chili.  If you cannot find kaffir leaf (lime leaf) squeeze some lime juice into the dish.  Asian markets generally have but I have run into problems locating it in an Asian market.  Also Thai basil is best but you can use regular basil in a pinch if you cannot find it in an Asian market.  

Turkey Hash

Do you have Turkey leftovers?  Use them in this recipe. It won't disappoint.  It is loaded with vegetables and if your carbs are limited omit the potato and if you do not like heat omit the jalapeno.  Have it for breakfast with a sunny side up egg.  You can serve it to your guests that came in for the holiday.  If you do not have any leftovers you can use ground turkey or cooked turkey breast..

Thankful Way of Life

I’ve always said, Thanksgiving is a way of life, not just a Holiday. To understand this better, let’s look at the...

Transylvania Stockpot with Kielbasas

This must of been Dracula's favorite snack food in between victims.   After all, it is named after his home town.  In fact, he may have used this warm hearty dish to lure in his victims from the blistery cold streets of Transylvania.  Even now the aroma may warm the Count by allowing him to reminisce "the good old days" when all it took was a warm soup to get his victims off the streets rather than a pair of Louis Vuitton.    This is an easy hearty soup that will warm the coldest of souls and is perfect for the season.  Use the Healthy Choice brand to eliminate the added carbs and fat with the sausage or try a smoked chicken or turkey sausage.  Enjoy!
