Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

 

Recently my obsession with the tomato, basil, and mozzarella combo has raised its ugly (tasty?) head. 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 …

Taco Salad

Hi folks!

I know that so many of you run into boredom in the P90x food department, and 90 days is a bit long to eat the same two dinners over and over, no matter how much you like them when you start out. So it’s time for some muscle confusion for the stomach! 😉

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks

Mmmmm. Bacon. Need I say more? No, I don’t, but I will, because if anything can make me wax poetic, it’s bacon.

So here’s my bacon haiku:

Bacon wrapped chicken,
So tasty. Now let’s press play.
P90x rocks.

That was deep. =D
Clearly, bacon makes everything better. Tastily marinated chicken …

Samantha’s Banana Scrunch Parfait

So I was thinking, “Man, I should get a good parfait recipe on my site, that would be a great addition to a P90x meal plan.” Enter Samantha, who created this very pretty one!

I know that I always say that I was thinking of creating a recipe before someone sends it to me, but …

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 …

Cream of Mushroom Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, my hubby is a fan of all things mushroom. Thus, when I was thinking of coming up with a meat-free soup for the cold weather, I decided that Cream of Mushroom should be first on the list! It came out well – hubby cleared his bowl. =)

So here’s a random …

Jessica’s Stuffed Peppers

Can you have too many P90x-friendly stuffed pepper recipes? I think not!
Oh, and I know this is the second reader-submitted post in a row. If you’re wondering if I’m getting lazy and just relying on my readers to supply all of my recipes for me, the answer is ABSOLUTELY. 😉

Take it away, …

Spaghetti Squash

Well, it’s official! My hubby has started round 2 of P90x! I’m back to cooking every meal and managing his nutrition, which you’d think would be a no-brainer for me at this point (given the website and all), however with this new vegan/vegetarian bent we’re on, I’m having to rethink everything. To a certain degree …

Turkey, Pesto, and Avocado Sandwich

Happy Thanksgiving (yesterday)! I hope you all had a great one. In honor of Turkey Day, I’m giving you a little sandwich recipe that I am thankful for: the Turkey, Pesto, and Avocado sandwich. Yum! You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit preoccupied with pesto of late. For me, pesto is the new …

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 …

Black Bean Burgers (and the Grumpy Vegan!)

I’ve never been much of a vegi-burger type person (or as you know, a vegi person in general), but lately I’ve been considering cutting out meat and dairy. This is a very depressing statement for me, and I’m very grumpy about it! LOL. It has nothing to do with philosophical problems with cruelty to animals …

Turkey, Bacon, and Avocado Sandwich

Silly Subway. They act like they’re all special for offering a turkey, bacon, and avocado sandwich, when we could just as easily make a P90x-friendly version for ourselves at home! And the good news? This is not a limited time offer. 😉

Ingredients: 2 slices whole wheat bread 3 oz. avocado 3 oz. turkey 2 …

Sarah’s Hot Diggity-Dawgs

Who knew that hot dogs, potatoes, and cheese could constitute health-food?! Sarah came up with a good one here. I also love how her Tennessee accent comes through in this recipe. I choose to believe that her voice sounds just like this! Thanks for your contribution, Sarah. Take it away!

“I have a new recipe. …

Danielle’s Spinach Pie

First of all, thank you for all of your vegetable-related emails. 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 …

BBQ Tofu and “Baked” Beans

By now you are all aware of my obsession with BBQ sauce. Bullseye Original is a staple in my household…I have a habit of putting it on everything – chicken, meatloaf, quesadillas…even things that just shouldn’t have BBQ sauce on them. lol. Well, here I go again. I’ve heard rumor that, BORG-like, tofu just absorbs …

Grapenuts Berry Crumble

Sorry for the crappy camera-phone picture. Can’t find my battery charger! Anyway, here is another P90x dessert option. I am a huge fan of Grapenuts cereal. Not in its normal teeth-shatteringly-crunchy state, but after it’s been softened by milk and heat. It just seemed like it’d make a perfect ingredient for a “crumble” or cobbler …

Homemade Olive Hummus and Pita

This was one of my more ambitious projects. I made this hummus completely from scratch, even to the point of starting with dried beans that I soaked overnight. After that time-consuming process was through, I decided that I never wanted to wait overnight for my food again! (You know me – lazy and impatient! 😉 …

Baja Zucchini Boats

Do any of you remember the Baja Potato Boats at Applebees? They were my favorite meal there for years. Then one day I went and they had vanished from the menu. Tragedy!! Applebees has never been the same for me since. Anyway, they were the inspiration for this recipe, even though this recipe tastes nothing …

X-y Oatmeal

Hi guys, d’ya miss me?! Judging from the multitude of forlorn emails I’ve received in the past two weeks, I’m guessing so. (OK, so maybe it was only ONE forlorn email, but I’m assuming that for every one email I receive there are hundreds of you who missed me and were too lazy to write! …
