This is the fastest, easiest meatloaf I've ever made - and it's delicious! Savory turkey stays moist with the help of oats and olive oil, and gets a flavor kick from Herbes de Provence and a tangy peach glaze. Instead of making a huge loaf, I've opted for a mini version, which is perfect for my husband and I. We have just enough leftovers for meatloaf sandwiches the next day. If you prefer, just double the recipe and cooking time for a traditional sized meatloaf (or make 2 small ones).

This salad was the perfect accompaniment to our Saturday Afternoon Seafood Boil menu. I can always count on my friend Donna to contribute something fun and tasty to our little wine club parties, and this salad is no exception!
This healthy alternative to good ole fried chicken is WAY easier to make, and really stands up to the fried version in the flavor department! This is a no-brainer for a simple week night dinner: Shown here with herbed potatoes and sauteed kale. And you can even pass this off to the kids as chicken fingers (really, really good ones)!
This Lasagna came out so much better than I thought it would. I took a vote on Facebook to see if I should use my homemade sausage in a traditional lasagna with marinara or try it with a butternut squash Bechamel. The marinara won the popular vote, but then I discovered my Tower Garden didn't have enough ripe tomatoes (likely due to my dog eating a bunch of them the other day) to make the marinara. So, I ended up using pureed squash in place of marinara, and it was SO good I didn't end up using any cream or butter - just plain old pureed squash simmered in stock.
This has become my favorite smoothie combination. It's delicious, and packed with healthful goodies, such as B-Complex vitamins, Vitamin C and E, and Calcium. It also provides significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, as well as over 8 grams of fiber and 15+ grams of protein.
Combine until smooth in a blender:
1 small banana
6 chunks (approx. 1 inch square) pineapple (I get the pre-cut chunks)
8 chunks (approx. 1 inch square) watermelon (pre-cut)
3 big handfuls of Kale (I prefer the organic, pre-washed, pre-chopped)
1 scoop Juice Plus+ Complete Drink Mix, Vanilla
1 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
1 cup unsweetened protein-fortified almond milk (plus more as
needed for preferred consistency)
With the already prepared veg. and fruit, it takes me less than five minutes to throw this together, and I'm out the door with my walking partner!
We had one of my favorites a few nights ago: Breakfast for Dinner. A simple salad of greens with fresh herbs, olive oil and fresh-squeezed lemon juice to counter the richness of homemade sausage patties. Add creamy scrambled eggs and you have serious comfort food. The best part: you can feel good about this meal, made with all organic ingredients, and no nitrates or fillers.
Use this spice mixture with ground meats and poultry to make your own sausage. See complete sausage recipe here, as well as recipes for Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms and Sausage Lasagna.
