Add milk and protein powder or low fat yogurt to amp up the nutrition. To cut calories, simply blend with only water. *Use frozen ingredients or fresh produce and add ice. For a quick green smoothie, mix 1/2 small green apple, 1/2 diced pineapple, 1 cup chopped spinach (or kale), 1/2 banana. For sweeter taste use yellow or red apple instead of green.

2.) CARAMEL POPCORN


Melt 1/3 cup butter or margarine with 1 tablespoon honey and a pinch of salt. Toss with 1 cup of popcorn and 1/2 cup pecans. Spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. Toss, let cool, then enjoy all the healthy sweetness!


3.) SALAD w/ CHICKEN (Mediterranean Twist)

It saves time to use a store-bought rotisserie chicken for this salad. Put a hand full or two of mixed greens (mesclun) in a bowl or Tupperware. Add the pieces of cut chicken along with 4 cherry tomatoes or 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chickpeas, chopped cucumber, red onion, and feta cheese. Top with your favorite vinaigrette or low-fat dressing. To cut calories, use lemon juice, vinegar, light oil, and pinches of salt/pepper OR replace chicken with olives.


4.) OMELETTE MUG (breakfast on-the-go)


In a mug, add 2 eggs, ½ bell pepper and or onion, 1/2 cup of your favorite pre-cooked and diced protein (ham, bacon, chicken, steak), ¼ cup fresh spinach, and of course salt and/or pepper to taste. Mix all of the ingredients together in the mug and microwave for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Yummmmm!



5.) POTATO CRISPS OR KALE CRISPS


Preheat baking sheet in a 450 degrees F oven for 2 minutes. Toss very thinly sliced small potatoes (2) with olive oil and salt. Spread the pieces on the hot baking sheet. Sprinkle with your favorite topping like curry, sesame seeds, old bay, pepper, or chilli powder and bake for 8 minutes.



6.) SHRIMP AVOCADO SALAD


Grab a handful or two (1-3 cups) of your favorite salad greens. Toss with 3/4 cup already cooked, peeled-deveined, and thawed shrimp, 2-3 slices avocado, 1/2 cup cucumber and tomato salsa dressing (that is chopped cucumber and tomato seasoned with lime juice, salt, pepper, cilantro, and vegetable oil).



7.) BAGEL SANDWICH


While your bagel of choice is toasting, cook 2 eggs (on stove or in the microwave to save more minutes). Most people like the eggs scrambled or over easy for this recipe. Add the eggs to the bagel along with spinach, sliced tomato, onion, and avocado. For a different taste make your bagel with egg, bacon, dijon mustard, melted cheese, and jalapenos.



8.) MUFFIN MUG (breakfast on-the-go)

In a mug, small dish, or durable travel-bowl, mix 1/4 cup flour, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp milk, sprinkle of cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of your favorite muffin ingredient like blueberries, banana, or chocolate chips. If you would like to add nuts just sprinkle some in. Crushed almonds are a great choice!

9.) VEGGIES WITH HUMMUS

This is a super quick one and is on the list because of how healthy and easy of an snack option it is. Wash (cut if applicable) 1-3 of your favorite types of raw veggies (bell pepper, carrots, snow-peas, celery, broccoli, or cauliflower to name a few). Enjoy with a few dollops of hummus. Sabra is tasty and comes in original or a variety of flavors like garlic, black bean, or red pepper. If you are no hummus fan, almond or peanut butter is great with celery or apples.

10.) PITA CHIPS WITH SALSA

Preheat baking sheet in a 425 degrees F oven for 2 minutes. While it is preheating, slice pita bread into strips or triangles and spread them on a cooking sheet. Brush on olive oil and salt/pepper. While pita toasts, you can put pre-made salsa or guacamole in a small bowl OR if you wish to make your own, here is a 5 minute salsa recipe>> Dice 2 large tomatoes and put in a bowl. Add 4 peeled and chopped garlic cloves (or 1/2 to 1 tsp garlic powder for something simpler), one chopped yellow onion. Add one cup packed cilantro, and one jalapeno (remove seeds unless you want a Reeeallly spicy salsa). Mix in 1/4 cup lime or lemon juice. To season, mix in chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add enough for your taste. Leave it a chunky salsa or pulse ingredients in a blender for a smoother salsa.
