    This morning, I made a smoothie with:
    chopped up cantaloupe
    a cup of Greek yogurt
    one and a half cups of vanilla almond milk
    a few teaspoons of peach-pineapple jam

    I put these items in the blender and hit the puree button.

    Then it was ready to drink.
    Very yummy and nutritious.

    I'm not sure how well this fits the bill, but it's better for you than regular cake or cookies.

    Pumpkin-spice cake, cookies, and/or muffins

    1 box of spice cake mix
    1 can of pumpkin puree
    Some virgin coconut oil (optional)

    1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

    2. Mix ingredients in a large bowl.

    I add the pumpkin first, then stir in quarters of the cake mix. (It's harder to stir if you throw it all in at once.)

    3. Put the mix into a form.

    The easiest method is with muffin pans, but lately I've taken to making cookies. If you do the former, coconut oil will keep it from sticking and you can smooth out the top a little with a fork. If you wanna make cookies, it'll take longer because the mix is really sticky ... but just try to flatten them out (maybe after dipping a spoon into coconut oil or water).

    And, of course, you can just make a cake with it. I've only done that once, but it turned out well. If you do it that way, you can combine a little of the cake mix with coconut oil to make a topping. And covering with foil can make it really moist.

    4. Pop it in the oven, and bake for ... well, it depends. Here in Denver (high alt), I bake them for 15-18 minutes (and I think that I did the cake for ~30 min, way back when). In other areas, you might only need 12-15 min for muffins or cookies.

    It's hard to burn these things, so the worst you're likely to do is dry them out. (If you put them in a ziplock bag for a day or so, they should get moist again.) And even if you undercook them, it doesn't really matter because you don't use eggs or anything. (It would just be a little soggy in the middle.) If you're experimenting, simply break one open and see if the center is mushy or if it looks like normal cake.

    I'm sorry that I can't be more exact.

    ... Anyway, there's a lot of benefits to using this recipe. Pumpkin is really good for you, and the optional coconut oil has good fats. It's easy, has very few ingredients, and it can be made vegan (depending on your cake mix). And it tastes good, just like cake. Everyone loves when I make 'em. (Well, except for my dad, who hates pumpkin. You can't really taste it, but he won't budge on the issue. His loss.)

    Even my ex's mother, who's a huge baker, ended up using this recipe. But she often added a bunch of stuff to it, like nuts and raisins. I didn't love it that way, but it worked fine. I've experimented with coconut topping (neutral), honey (didn't like), almonds (fine), and chocolate chips (my daughter loooves it this way ). You can put your own twist on it, if you want.

    I also want to try it with chocolate cake mix one of these days. Of course, I don't expect that to be too healthful.

    Oh, and a good dip is easy.

    1 packet of Lipton onion soup mix
    1 medium container of plain Greek yogurt

    Add the soup mix into the container, and stir.
    Let it sit in the fridge for a little while (optional).
    Grab some carrots or chips, and enjoy.

    My brother's gf recently discovered that she's allergic to milk, and they tried this recipe with tofu instead of yogurt. I don't think that they did anything besides blend it. It turned out well. If anyone's interested, I can ask them for details to confirm.

    Gourmet Scrabmled Eggs.

    So you take your eggs, and make them like you would normal scrambled eggs, (I use 3 egg whites, and one whole egg, but you can vary this up a bit to suit your needs.) But now you mix in some chives, some ground pepper, and some parsley flakes. Stir it up a little it, and add some mustard. I give it a little more mustard to give it a kick and give it more flavor since I use egg whites which don't have much flavor. Just add the milk, and then let them cook like normal scrambled eggs.

    You can spice it up further and make it look pretty by adding some cut up bacon, and garnishing with parsley flakes, tomatoes, red peppers, or any combination of those. Enjoy your eggs!!!

    Chicken And Pear Salad.

    Pretty simple. Cut up a pear and a chicken breast, and mix it in with the salad. Tastes amazing with red wine vinegar. Healthy, easy to make, and tastes great. Why WOULDN'T you make it?!
