$ IN THE QUEST TO LOSE FAT, GAIN MUSCLE AND INCREASE STAMINA Chef Sharon Experiments With Known Methods To Draw Her Own Conclusions – includes reduced-fat and fat-free recipes with lots of motivational insights.
Jasmine rice and Toasted Quinoa make a great texture match. I’m using it often lately. What you add later is up to you. This time we start with Matcha Green Tea Powder to flavor the grains. Then we top each serving with Tomato Mushroom Sauce followed by a very traditional fried onions and peppers! A shredded dairy free cheese topper is optional.
It’s Thanksgiving or any other holiday, so why not ratchet up your old favorites with a twist of new? Cranberry and apple in salsa? Why not? Take this dip with you to any gathering. Volunteer for the dip detail. You will change people’s taste buds forever. From now on they will expect the cranberries and apple in their salsa. They will, in fact, demand it. Where’re the cranberries? They don’t have them in the summer. Yes, they do. All year round in every grocery. Where’s the apple? Didn’t know you wanted apple. What??!! Everybody wants apple in their salsa. Where have you BEEN? Serve with any tortilla chips that strike you as appropriate; we’ll take care of everything else!
BAKED APPLES WITH QUINOA APPLE PINE NUT STUFFING low fat
If you don’t want to do the apples, that’s just as fine. Serve stuffing from stove-top as is. Perfect either way! However, the apples do add a festive touch to a festive holiday! And they’re easier than pie to make!
This is my gluten-free, bread-free, animal-free, low-fat stuffing. It’s made stove-top, so you don’t take up room in the oven while roasting veggies, plant-meat roasts etc. How can nutrient-dense tastes so good? Because you know who engineered it that way!
You don’t have to go through the entire canning process to make pickled beets. Prep, cook, place in a jar and refrigerate to use as wanted. Here we add sweet onion strips and sweet red pepper. Then as we use the beets, we add other ingredients to the pickling jar, such as matchstick carrots and/or kidney beans (washed and drained). It makes a tasty salad by itself or as a side dish!
Hey, the Chinese don’t tell me how to cook in my own home. They fry the rice; I fry the veggies and season the water the rice gets cooked in. It reduce calories and minimizes a big mess in the frying pan. I don’t care if it’s not the way the Asians make it. They never experiment with anything new. It’s always the same for thousands of years. More.
There’s a Walgreen’s store a block away from us. I needed bread and didn’t want to walk all the way to the grocery and knew Walgreen’s sold something that looked like bread. I stopped buying Hostess decades ago and didn’t even know they made bread. Well, this is pretty good for a light sandwich, which is what I want these days. Most similar breads contain about 110 calories per slice. With Hostess I get 2 slices for 140 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat.
Welcome to my home Hostess.

Ever wonder what to do with fresh corn-on–the-cob besides eating it straight from the cob? I did, and this tomato corn curry rice is what I came up with. Super simple. Super tasty. Light and refreshing!
