Chicken Enchiladas

I’m back, baby!! Or, I should say, I’m back with baby. 🙂 The new baby has been successfully thrown onto the pile (of children, that is). Woot!  In other news, I recently found myself with nothing edible in my kitchen but tortillas, cheese, frozen chicken, and a can of tomato sauce. Chalk that up to lack of sleep …

Minestrone Soup

Growing up I hated sandwiches. Weird, I know! I actually didn’t discover a sandwich I liked until I married my hubby and he made me a delicious sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And of course, now I’m addicted to Tomato, Basil, and Mozzerella Sandwiches, so I guess I’m a poster-child for trying new things even when you previously …

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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …

Creamy Tofu Pesto with Artichokes and Mushrooms

OK, guys. I’ve made a super exciting discovery! (Well, exciting as food discoveries go. I have to take my thrills where I can get them!) Remember how in the Creamy Pesto and Kielbasa recipe I was a little concerned about adding yogurt to my Spinach Pesto in order to add creaminess, because it adds that …

Banana Sandwich

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, other than YUM. Oh, and be warned that this sucker is intense! You might want to save it until you have a dairy serving to spare for a glass of milk! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 whole wheat English muffin 2 Tb. peanut butter 1/2 banana …

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. …

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

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 …

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 …

French Toast

Have you ever wondered why french toast has gotten such a bad rap? It’s just bread, eggs, and milk! The key to this and other similar breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.) is what you drizzle over them. If you make them with whole wheat bread and egg whites, and keep it to honey or pure …

Danielle’s Kicked Up Stuffed Peppers

So Danielle totally read my mind. I have been thinking for some time that a stuffed bell pepper recipe was missing from this site, but I have been too lazy to get off my butt and come up with one! Boy am I glad for my laziness now, because Danielle did the work for me, …
