Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

  Recently my obsession with the tomato, basil, and mozzarella combo has raised its ugly (tasty?)┬áhead. Basil is so cheap during the summer that I bought a massive basil plant and have been eating off of it for weeks. I wanted to make my tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwich, but it was bugging me how …

Portabella Pizza Bites

Welcome Pinterest people! Check out my P.P.P.S. below just for you!! =) If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a big fan of pizza. For some reason it just seems so special and indulgent to me, perhaps because it has gotten such a bad rap as a junk food. Well, the good news is that …

Italian Polenta

Italian Polenta

Today’s recipe is less of a recipe, and more of a serving suggestion! I recently learned that polenta (aka corn grits) can be served Italian-style in the place of pasta. So you basically cook the polenta, and then serve it with some tasty sauce on top. I served it with my Meat Spaghetti Sauce over …

Danielle’s Spinach Pie

Many of you who either 1) love vegetables or 2) hate them like I do, have taken pity on me and sent me recipes or suggestions for making veggies more palatable. I’m planning to try many of your suggestions, however once again, Danielle sent …

Pollo Relleno

Here is another one of my favorite dishes from pre-P90x, with a few minor tweaks to make it work within the P90x portion approach! I formerly made this in a similar fashion to Chicken Cordon Bleu, with the ingredients inside chicken that had been pounded thin and rolled. Then I would roll the outside in …

Grilled Parmesan Zucchini

Grilled Parmesan Zucchini

You know me – vegis are not my favorite thing in the world. However I want to be healthy, so I do force them down, and of course now that I’m managing my hubby’s P90x nutrition, he has at least 4 servings a day. As a result, I am constantly on the hunt for ways …

Three Cheese Marinara Muffin Melt

Marinara Muffin Melt

So I spent most of yesterday trying to make homemade whole-wheat no-egg-yolk ravioli for you guys. I started around 9 a.m., and it was finally ready to eat at 2 p.m. It was beautiful, filled with yummy filling, and totally gross! lol. Sorry, I tried! As I was slaving over it, hand kneading the dough, …

BBQ Rice Meatloaf

BBQ Rice Meatloaf

My hubby and I have never really liked meatloaf. That is, until I discovered this BBQ version – it turns out that it was the ketchup that was ruining it for us. Just wait until your family smells this P90x-friendly recipe cooking! I had to fend my husband and a swarm of hungry children off …

Chicken Caesar Wraps

Chicken Caesar Wraps

This Chicken Caesar Wrap is so simple, and so good! I don’t know if you can tell in this lame camera-phone picture (my real camera’s new battery charger is on order!) but I was so excited about this one that I actually took a bite of it before I remembered I had to take a …

Ground Beef Tacos

P90x Ground Beef Tacos

Tacos are a quick, easy lunch or dinner, and you can pack in a bunch of different types of P90x servings. The handy thing is that it’s a mix-and-match meal – add whatever toppings are necessary to fulfill the servings you need for the day! Ingredients: 3 corn tortillas (1 carb serving) 6 oz. extra …

Chicken Cordon Bleu with Honey Mustard Sauce

P90x Chicken Cordon Bleu

Now doesn’t this sound fancy? lol. Don’t be scared, it’s way easier than it sounds!┬áThis is a nice addition to my list of P90x recipes because it uses only a few, fairly common ingredients, but seems just a bit gourmet! This recipe makes enough for one, but it’d be easy to multiply to feed the …

Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich

You won’t find many tomatoes in my recipes, because my hubby hates them! lol. (Suffice it to say that for most of my P90x recipes, you could chop a tomato into them to add a full vegi serving and tons of color.) However, sometimes I can’t resist buying a few tomatoes and making a little …
