Walnut Granola

If you love gra­nola and have been told to stay away from the sug­ar and fat laden ver­sions of it, this recipe is for you.  This gra­nola recipe has less sug­ar, oil and salt than most store bought ver­sions and it still tastes great.  You can’t com­plete­ly leave out the oil  oth­er­wise it won’t be crunchy.  It’s become a sta­ple in our home.  My daugh­ter takes it to...

Amaranth Porridge

Ama­ranth seeds may be tiny but they are nutri­tion pow­er­hous­es.  These tiny lit­tle seeds are a great source of pro­tein ( 9g per 1 cooked cup) as well as con­tain iron, mag­ne­sium, zinc and fiber.  Unlike oth­er grains, they also pro­vide the essen­tial amino acid, lysine.  Most peo­ple get enough lysine from meats, cheese, fish and eggs but if you are veg­an or an ath­lete...

Mango-Banana Smoothie

Smooth­ies are one of my favorite week-day break­fast foods.  I also drink them for a pre- or post- work­out snack.  They are so easy to make, and can be poured into a to-go mug, that there is no rea­son to skip break­fast.  You can make it your own by adding dif­fer­ent kinds of fresh or frozen fruits, and adding either milk, soymilk, yogurt or com­bi­na­tion there­of.  I...
