I will post a few up.... Here is the first one. I love this, it is a great appetizer/snack. It is very healthy for the most part!!

5 pounds tomatoes (Use anything from vine-ripened, plum, heirloom, cherry or regular old garden tomatoes; it really doesn't matter.)

2 cloves garlic

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Olive oil

French bread or any type of artisan bread (You can also buy the hard round toasts at the grocery store if you're in a hurry or simply use Melba toast)

Basil (Fresh is better, but dried may be substituted in a pinch)

Salt and pepper to taste

Shredded parmesan cheese


Wash the tomatoes and dry them. Dice the tomatoes and place in a bowl.

Mince two cloves of garlic (this may be amended to taste) and add to bowl.

Mix in 2 teaspoons of balsamic, 1 tablespoon olive oil and basil, salt and pepper and shredded parmean cheese, all to taste.

To prepare the bread:

In the meantime, to make your croute (essentially dry, crunchy toast), preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Brush your bread with olive oil and place on a tray in the hot oven for 5 to 6 minutes. This will dry the bread out to crouton consistency. Once those are taken out of the oven, you can opt to rub a garlic clove over the top of the bread to give it a garlicky essence.

Transfer the croutes to a plate, and spoon the tomato mixture onto the bread.

Garnish with a basil leaf.

You may also add thin slices of fresh, soft mozzarella cheese to the bruschetta as a nice companion to the acidity of the tomatoes.

Arrange on a platter with fresh sprigs of basil for garnish. :)

If you have never tried an eggplant it kinda tastes like a tamatoe. :)

1 eggplant sliced into 1/2" to 1" rounds

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 jar marinara sauce (or homemade)

1-2 cloves garlic (minced)

1/2 onion (cut into rings)

parmesan cheese

distilled water


Steam saute garlic and onion in a small amount of distilled water until tender. Set aside.

Saute eggplant in olive oil until lightly brown and tender on both sides.

Cover bottom of a baking dish with small amount of marinara sauce (ensure pan is large enough to hold eggplant without overlapping).

Place eggplant in pan and top with more sauce to cover eggplant. Add garlic and onion and top with sauce.

Once covered with sauce, top with cheese and bake at 400-450 degrees (covered) for 15-25 minutes or until sauce bubbles.

8oz. whole wheat pasta

1/2 red pepper, sliced into strips

1/2 green pepper, sliced into strips

1 small onion, sliced into strips

1 garlic clove, minced

1-2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1. boil pasta according to package directions 2. while pasta cooks, steam saute onion, garlic, and peppers and add pasta when it is done.

Theres no need for a sauce because the onions make it moist and sweet! This is really good with a salad.

Some extra tips:::

*Vegtable and peanut oil are the most unhealthiest oils. Go for Canola or Olive oil.

*If you ever decide to make homemade french fries:

Cut them up, lay them on a metal tray (something that can be put in the oven), put olive oil on both sides. Then put garlic powder, onion powder, italian seasonings, and parmesan cheese on them. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. That way you are not frying them, they are ALOT healthier.

*Drink lots of water. (You probably already knew that though.) ;)

Hope this helps. XOXO :P

fish is a great food like that you can bake just put with some veggies and you can have ketchup or tartersauce

chicken is AWESOME and very versitile you can cut chicken (i buy frozen bags of breasts from walmart) into chunks and cook on the stove with no butter on medium heat just keep stiring and it only takes a few mins then you can cover with barBQ sauce or honey mustard, or sweet and sour sauce. eat with rice, bread, or pasta. i like making cassarole with it just cook some EGGNOODLES and mix in a can of cream of chicken or mushroom and some milk i put peas and carrots in mine.

also you can take thawed out chicken breasts place them in a ovensafe pan. take a mug and fill it half way with mayo then mix in some parmasan cheese. smear that ontop of the chicken breasts then sprinkle with italian seasoned bread crumbs. i bake it (i believe it's 425) for about 20 mins. if the breasts are really thin it could be less if they're really thick it could be longer. just cut one in half and check to see if it's white or pink before you offically take it out to eat ^_^

my mom loves boiling chicken and using that with barBQ

just cook up some whole wheat pasta or whole wheat rice. the wheat and grani breads are the best if you plan on having bread with your dinner because of the fiber in the bread which makes you feel fuller for longer
