What's your favorite healthy-ish recipe?

What is that one recipe that you love, that's not fat free, nor is it Adkins friendly, just plain good and semi-healthy?

For me, it's my banana bread pudding, as it is full of eggs, milk, nuts and bananas with low sugar. (I'll post the recipe if anyone is interested.)

A favorite of mine is finely chopping fresh herbs - rosemary, lemon thyme, sage, chives and adding finely chopped garlic clove and shallot. I mix this with butter to make a nice paste and then mix with fine breadcrumbs. It is wonderful on top of a pork chop or stuffed inside a flattened chicken breast (save some for the top) which I bake. If I use it for fish/shrimp I add lemon zest. I deglaze the baking pan with chicken stock and dry vermouth (the white-clear not the red) and reduce until thickened and finish with butter and pour over the meat. MMMMMM You could use any herbs you have or that are your favorite. I sometimes add marjoram but I killed it by watering it too much or freshly grated ginger.

Thank you Jkath for the compliment. Let me know how you like it if you try it. I did something similar on a piece of salmon last night, but added dill and lemon zest and left out the rosemary. Twas VG

I often make smoothies for breakfast before school, and then drink the rest for a mid-day snack. They are really good and healthy. For a little added zip, i sometimes add peach soda. YUMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!

Bangs Lasagna

1 lb. Lasagna pasta noodles, cooked

1 large jar Prego Traditional Past Sauce

1 lb. Ricotta cheese

1/2 C. grated Parmesan cheese

1 lb. shredded mozzeralla cheese(get mine fresh from the italian bakery)

2 lb. ground sirloin.....use chicken if you want

2 eggs







Cooking Directions
1. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions or until tender but still firm. Drain, keep warm.


2. Meanwhile, saute the ground beef,in a large heavy skillet or saucepan until beef is done. Add sauce. Simmer on low heat 12 to 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine eggs and ricotta cheese.


3. Grease a 9" x 12" or larger, baking pan. Arrange a first layer of noodles so the ends hang over the sides of the pan. (The ends will be laid back-over the top for the final layer) Then add a layer of the cooked beef lasagna sauce, ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. Add a second alternating layer of pasta, the meat sauce and cheese mixture. Repeat until pan is almost full then fold over the ends of the first layer of noodles and top with more lasagna sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, or till cheese is bubbly.

Allow to set for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.

I can tell ya what I'm eating right now.. AND, I'm not a vegetarian.. I just sometimes like things with only vegies... because I love vegies and fruit.

I just made a sandwhich roll up with cheddar cheese and shredded lettuce, diced tomato, onion, and fresh mushrooms.. with a little italian dressing.. it's yummy!!

If you noticed in my recipe...I did not add any additional salt and there is an option to use ground chicken instead. Yes.......it is the perfect food. Add a green salad and your done.
