    Oh and a really sexy breakfast??


    Chop an apple and a banana up into smallish pieces,
    fry them in a little butter until they soften and the sugars start coming out
    add about a 1/3cup of oatmeal and heat up along with the fruit, until everything is naturally caramelized and yum.

    Kinda like porridge without the stodgy milk, very naturally sweet, full of vitamins and flavor. xxx

    Healthy Hummus

    1 cup dried chickpeas (about 2.5 cups hydrated)
    1 onion, diced
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
    ½ cup liquid from chickpeas
    4 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
    5-7 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons crushed garlic
    ½ teaspoon salt
    Cayenne to taste (1/2 teaspoon)
    1. Soak the chickpeas over night than boil them for thirty minutes to an hour until they are soft enough to smash with a spoon. Drain the chickpeas saving about a half cup of the water they were boiled in.
    2. Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil, until the onion is transparent.
    3. Put the sauteed onion and garlic plus all the other ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add some of the reserved chickpea water to get things moving if you need to. In Panama we used a hand-crank, clamp-on the counter type grinder and it worked just fine.

    Here's a really fast and easy one!

    1) Either buy cooked chicken (I tend to get the Italian seasoned ones - no breading... just the chicken) or you can cook your own chicken breast and cut it up into strips.
    2)Cucumber
    3)Green Apple
    4)Red Bell Pepper
    5)Vanilla Greek Yoghurt

    Mix it all together and eat! Or you can put it on a spinach wrap and eat it that way too. So delicious, and hardly any calories or sugar. It fills you too!
     
  4. Pasta with Collard Greens

    Collard greens are a great way to work calcium into your diet without eating dairy. Try this pasta dish for a well-balanced meal. For the healthiest version of this recipe, use whole wheat pasta. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), half of your grains should be whole grains.
    Serves 4pasta with collard greens recipe​

    Ingredients:
    1 bunch collard greens, stemmed and washed
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 medium red onion, cut in half lengthwise, then sliced across the grain
    Salt to taste
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    Ground black pepper
    8-12 oz. pasta, whole wheat
    1/2 cup cooking water from the pasta
    1-2 oz. Parmesan cheese

    Preparation:
    • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt generously and add the collard greens. Blanch for 2 minutes, then using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of cold water and drain. Squeeze out excess water and cut crosswise into thin ribbons.
    • In a large lidded frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring often, until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt, red pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute, and add the collard greens and salt and pepper to taste. When the greens begin to sizzle, turn the heat to low and cover, simmering for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water, cover and continue to simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until the greens are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings.
    • Meanwhile, cook the pasta. Bring the water in the pot back to a boil and add the pasta. Cook al dente, following the timing instructions on the package.
    • Before draining the pasta, ladle 1/2 cup of the cooking water from the pot into the frying pan with the collard greens and onions. Drain the pasta and toss with the greens. Serve, topping each serving with Parmesan to taste.
