I love making pizza almost as much as I love eating it. I’m always excited to try a new recipe, so when I spotted a surprisingly appetizing picture of zucchini-crust pizza on Pinterest, I was immediately intrigued. Good news: it was delicious! And it’s pretty easy to make, too. (It’s also a great way to get someone to eat an entire zucchini without even realizing it!) Here’s how I did it:
When it comes to successful (and creative) cooking, the secret’s in the sauce. With a good sauce, you can build many different meals and snacks — from pasta and pizza to stuffed veggies and delicious dips!
Over the years, I’ve perfected several sauce recipes that have garnered the hungry-kid-and-husband seal of approval. (No small feat!) I like to make them on Sundays so I can easily assemble various meals throughout the week — because less time spent cooking means more time spent with the family!
Give your old-fashioned tuna melt a gourmet makeover by mixing in pre-made pesto sauce and fiery roasted red peppers. Topped with mild Provolone cheese, these sandwiches are served open faced—making a tasty light lunch or the perfect companion to a bowl of soup or healthy salad.
It’s been a delicious (and healthy) year! Plates were piled high with colorful salads. Meatless Mondays trickled over into Tuesdays (and Wednesdays and Thursdays…). You kicked gluten to the curb. Burned out your blender on micro-greens smoothies. Fell harder in love with chocolate than you ever thought possible, once you tasted it raw.
Noodles come in all shapes and sizes—but have you ever tried to make your own? From vegetables? That’s right! These spaghetti-like stands are julienned from fresh zucchini, then topped with a unique broccoli pesto made with homemade cashew “cheese.” This recipe is a raw vegan dream!
Eating healthy is important at any age, but it’s especially important for seniors. For good nutrition in your golden years, it’s best to:
* Drink plenty of water.
* Eat high-quality proteins such as eggs, lean meats, poultry and fish.
* Incorporate a good balance of carbohydrates and fiber such as bread, cereals, pasta and other grain products into your diet.
* Get calcium from low-fat sources such as milk, yogurt, cheese and broccoli.
