Corn Bread

Mmm, what goes better with chili than corn bread? Yum. Actually, we don't need chili as an excuse to eat corn bread. As a substitute for regular wheat bread (especially if you're out of it), fresh baked corn bread can accompany whatever meals you think it would taste great with. This corn bread is 100% whole grain, no sugar added, with minimal margarine; and we still love it. However, feel free to check out the two variations offered at the bottom of the page in case you'd like to tweak this recipe more to your liking.

Herbed Lentils & Rice Casserole

This casserole is one of my delicious favorites. It's easy to prepare; and other than the vegan cheese, it's very healthy (but I do like it with the vegan Swiss(!), so I make a rare exception to my usual rule of staying away from saturated fats as much as possible). If you would like to try making this casserole without the vegan cheese, you might try adding a little more flaxseed meal to help bind the ingredients together. Note: It has been very difficult for me to find the vegan Swiss cheese locally. I suppose it could be substituted, but other cheeses won't have that lovely Swiss flavor that I've gotten so used to. Go ahead and be bold, though! Feel free to modify this recipe (and others) to suit your taste and preferences.

Soft Tacos

These tacos are wonderfully tasty, nutritious, and easy to prepare. They are one of our favorite meals. Scroll down for several recipe variations that you could try. This is a very flexible meal that you can make your own.

Chocolate Brownies

Guilt-free brownies? Pretty darn close without the optional chocolate chips. But we like them added and feel like the small amount of chocolate in each brownie is offset by how otherwise healthy these yummy brownies are! Either way, we hope you enjoy these moist, chewy, chocolatey brownies as much as we do!

Hot (or Cold) Cocoa

This cocoa is so tasty and healthy that it shouldn't be restricted to enjoying in cold weather only. If you're really too hot to enjoy this drink hot, you could always make the cold, refreshing version. This cocoa beverage contains no added sugar or fat. The only sugar and fat come from the whole organic soybeans in the soymilk. Cocoa powder, as opposed to chocolate, does not contain any sugar and only a trivial amount of fat.
