All-Around Good Smoothie
Great smoothie recipe to use as a guide for whatever one has on hand. I used almond milk, maple syrup instead of honey and I used whole grass fed Greek yogurt and some lime juice to give it a little tang. I didn't use the protein supplement or flax seed. Used a sprinkle of poppyseed instead as that's what I had on hand. Also added a few ice cubes to thicken it a bit. Turned out delicious!

Cobb Salad
Excellent and satisfying dish. My husband loved it. I used grass fed bacon without additives so I could say it was a healthy dish. I've been reading lately that fat is actually good for us, in moderation of course. Unfortunately, I didn't have an avocado on hand. Used olives instead. This recipe would work for a "salad in a jar". Put the dressing of your choice in the bottom of a quart jar, then the tomatoes, then onion, then avocado. Sprinkle a little lemon juice over avocado to prevent browning. Add egg, then bacon and top it off with your choice of lettuce. Beautiful! And delicious & healthy too!

Extra Easy Hummus
Modified as others have done. Added 1 T fresh lemon juice, only 1 teaspoon cumin, added a few shakes of Southwest seasoning for flavoring (ancho pepper, onion, garlic, Mexican oregano, cayenne pepper chipotle & cilantro). Also added 1/3 cup shelled, roasted pistachios which gave it a great flavor & texture. Delicious!!
