Roasting these healthy green jewels is the best way to cook them, not only for excellent flavor, but to keep in all the precious nutrients!
Broccoli is one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. Once they try it roasted though... a lot of those haters change their mind.

Ever hear of food synergy? It's when certain superfoods are combined together to create an even healthier food. This recipe contains 3 examples of food synergy; Kale & Almonds, Avocado & Tomato, Orange & Avocado making this one delicious, super healthy salad. Definitely something you'll want to add to your daily diet or at least a few times a week!
What the heck are Zoodles you ask?! Zoodles are noodles made from zucchini squash. They're very easy to make, delicious, take away a lot of the calories & create a much healthier meal when you use them in place of pasta in your dishes. Using this technique, you can also make spiralzed noodles from butternut squash & other hard to semi-hard vegetables.
There no limit as to what you can do with Zoodles & other veggie noodles. Use them in salads, slaws, soups, casseroles, on top of pizza & so on. You're only limited by your imagination. Once you try these you'll be using Oodles of Zoodles all the time & your kids will love them too!
Pho (pronounced "Fuh") is a hearty, traditional Vietnamese noodle soup originally made with beef. Pho Ga is the version made with chicken. You can also use turkey, which is a great way to use up some leftovers after Thanksgiving. No matter how you make it, it's absolutely delicious!

A healthy recipe for #MeatlessMonday or #FoodieFryday... this is one of those dishes that's extremely versatile, easy to put together & cooks up in a flash! These are the ingredients I use most often, however you can replace any of the vegetables with another you like or happen to have in the frig that needs to be used up (see Tip# 5). Keep in mind that certain vegetables take longer than others to cook.
I created this salad in the mid 1970's for an "Ecology Themed" pot luck dinner. Over the years it has evolved to incorporate more modern & healthful ingredients and has become my Signature Salad Dish. It's an especially fun salad for St. Patrick's Day & Earth Day.
