Slow Cooker Chili

Well, I’ve done it! I’ve perfected my vegan slow cooker chili recipe. Yesterday my family celebrated our annual holiday – Thanksmas! As the name implies, it is a cross between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (The name also implies that my family is extremely cheesy. I won’t argue with you there.) I was hosting, but due to …

Turkey, Bacon, and Avocado Sandwich

Turkey Bacon Avacado Sandwich

This is not a limited time offer. Ingredients: 2 slices whole wheat bread 3 oz. avocado 3 oz. turkey 2 slices …

Barley Vegetable Soup

Barley Vegetable Soup

You know me. Vegis and I have a love-hate relationship. OK, so mostly hate. But nevertheless, my hubby and I are eating them, because you have to eat your vegetables when you do P90x! So here is another not-terrible way to eat your vegetable servings. I know, such a glowing recommendation for my own recipe! …

Twice “Baked” Potatoes

OK, I’m going to toot my own horn a little on this one. THESE ROCK. When you have only one carb serving to spare, the dish you use it for had better be good. You know how Elaine on Seinfeld asks her boyfriend if he is sponge-worthy? When you are on P90x, the question becomes, …

Chicken Fajita Pita

Chicken Fajita Pita

One of my favorite fast food meals is the Jack in the Box Chicken Fajita Pita. The other day I was mourning the fact that I couldn’t get one because we were eating at home, when suddenly I realized – I have chicken, I have pitas, and I have toppings!  Don’t know why I never …

I am so excited about this one, guys, because not only is it a delicious salad, it is a recipe for P90x CANDY! Woot! Can’t argue with that. This is my mom’s famous salad that she takes to potlucks, except I used honey to candy the almonds instead of plain sugar. Ingredients for Candied Almonds: …

Burnt Green Beans

Burnt Green Beans

No, this was not a mistake – I really did burn my green beans on purpose! This is my famous recipe, one that is requested by family at the holidays. Over the years as I’ve made green beans, I’ve noticed that the burned beans were the tastiest ones, so each time I’d burn more and …

Cheesy Olive Muffin Melt

Cheesy Olive English Muffins

These cheesy olive English muffin things are so good, mainly because they are a P90x-ed variation on one of the best appetizers I’ve ever had! Typically, I’ve served this at parties on rye bread squares (you could still do that for yourself, by the way, just keep it to 2 slices of rye bread total), …

Herbed Cottage Cheese Spread

Herbed Cottage Cheese Spread

Wondering what to eat on your wheat bagel or 2″ x 4 3/4″ potato? Look no further than this tasty cottage cheese spread. I can’t take full credit for this one – my parents were on the Atkins diet as a kid and we’d have this all the time – I’m pretty sure that the …
