Salad and Sandwich

This Week's Photo


* Garden Salad
* Mandarin Ginger Dressing
* Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Avocado and Mustard
* Baked Apple Slices with Oats and Nuts

Preparation Notes

As the weather warms, and our farmers' market continues to expand its offerings, you'll begin to see more and more salads featured here. We are truly looking forward to summer's bounty, and we suspect that you might be too!

Prepare a salad with your favorite fresh vegetables and fruits.

Pour some salad dressing of your choice into the little dip container. Consider experimenting with varieties that you've not tried before.

Make a grilled cheese sandwich. Spruce it up with some sliced avocado, marinated red bell peppers, or grilled vegetables.

Prepare the baked sliced apples: Slice apples and sprinkle with a small amount of water or orange juice. Bake in a covered dish (or heat in a sauce pan on the stove) until tender. Add oats and nuts (or high-quality granola), and stir to combine ingredients.

Pesto Ravioli

This Week's Photo


* Pesto Ravioli
* Cinnamon Applesauce
* Steamed Broccoli
* Whole Grain Cereal

Preparation Notes

We picked up this fresh ravioli, pesto sauce, and broccoli at the farmers' market over the weekend. We prepared it for dinner last night and packed the rest for lunch today--along with some applesauce and some whole grain cereal. It was quite good!

Prepare the ravioli with pesto sauce for dinner and pack the leftovers for lunch.

Steam some fresh broccoli until "al dente."

Include a handful of whole grain cereal

Add some cinnamon applesauce. We packed applesauce that we put up last fall, but store-bought applesauce and fresh homemade applesauce work just as well.

Chili Lunch

This Week's Photo


* Vegetable Chili
* Flax Seed Tortilla Chips
* Low-fat Sour Cream
* Roasted Beets
* Banana
* Tangerine Cutie

Preparation Notes

The weather may be getting warmer, but chili and roasted beets still provide plenty of comfort at this time of year. And fresh fruit is always a treat!

Prepare the chili for dinner and save the leftovers for lunch. In fact, consider making a large pot on the weekend to enjoy throughout the week. (It's more nutritious and economical than relying on take-out.)

Roast some beets and cut into manageable pieces.

Add a handful of flax Seed tortilla chips..

Scoop some low-fat sour cream into the small dip container.

Cut a banana in half.

Add a tangerine cutie.
