Orange Beet Mimosa

Orange juice makes everything sweet and sunny. Beets add jewel-like color as well as added nutrition to this classic brunch drink.

Orange Sherbet

This healthy version of orange sherbet reminds me of the ‘push-up’ pops I used to have as a kid that were filled with creamy sherbet, refreshingly cool during the hot summer months.

Baked Tomatoes with Grapes

I was recently leafing through Michele Scicolone’s cookbook ‘The Antipasto Table’, coming across a recipe that I tried over seven years ago… and yes, it sounds like a bizarre combo.

Citrus Smoothie

Smoothies can be a no-mess way to get in vital nutrients that you may be lacking in your everyday diet, like vitamin C and calcium. They are superfast to whip up and the creamy texture can help fight cravings for sweets and frozen treats.

Snow Peas with Orange Zest and Garlic

Anyone who has minimal cooking experience will like this recipe – even my husband, the reluctant cook. Just be sure not to overcook the snow peas.

Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

Avocado in a milkshake might sound unusual, but in Vietnam it’s a traditional treat that you can order in local restaurants. Enjoy a creamy, rich shake while getting a serving of vegetables to boot!

Crock-Pot Baked Apples

This was an old stand-by in our family home on icy Pittsburgh winter nights when cold weather kept us indoors. This dessert has the same flavors as apple pie without the guilt of a fattening crust!

Hearty Vegetable Ham Soup

Winter is the perfect time for soup and this one can even help you to keep your New Year’s resolution. High in protein and low in fat, this chunky soup will help you to feel full without packing on the pounds.
