Good-Morning Banana Nut Cereal

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I made this recipe up while I was living alone during grad-school. You can double it, doctor it, and pretty much add whatever you want to it. I used quinoa for extra protein to help me get through really long days. I've added flax seed, blueberries, diced apples, dried cranberries, peaches, etc. to this recipe. Some will find it sweet enough with just the banana but, if you're like me and you live molasses, brown sugar adds a nice flavor. I think you could make this with pretty much any grain you want - sometimes I toss in a little polenta or grits, but it's important to use slow-cooking oats, not the quick-cook or instant oats.

Almond Flour Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I followed one reviewer's (untested?) advice and whipped egg whites with a pinch of cream of tartar. Good idea, but if you follow the rest of the recipe exactly there's no way to blend the whites with the rest of the batter - the other stuff is too stiff - so here's what I did: 3 eggs, separated 1/4 cup almond milk pinch cream of tartar Mix egg yolks, honey, milk vanilla and dry ingredients. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into egg-yolk mixture. Because of personal preference, I cut back on the honey by about a tablespoon. I added cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg (batter smelled like custard and nutmeg goes with custard). I filled my 1 cup measure most of the way up with loosely packed almond meal (trader joe's), then topped off the last 1/2 inch of the measuring cup with a mix of oat flour and corn meal (medium grind). The oat flour helps things stick a little, the corn meal adds a bit of crunch, neither adds gluten. Waffles were delicious with a fluffy texture - not crisp on the outside, but not super rubbery either. Topped with cherry compote and greek yogurt. One note - Almond flour is usually HIGH FAT - this is why the recipe doesn't need any oil.

Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
Try this recipe with light, high fiber, whole wheat bread, then you can afford yourself or your child a little extra peanut butter without making this a high-calorie meal. You can cut back the calories (especially from simple carbohydrates) and up the fiber and protein content for a really healthy treat!

Bow-Tie Pasta With Red Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Might be a good recipe but the calorie count is almost certainly off. Maybe since it's 6 servings out of what would normally be 4 servings of pasta, but it still doesn't seem right.
