Power Greens Omelet for an Easy Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is an important meal for me, but I don’t like to spend much time preparing it. That’s why when I find an easy healthy breakfast, I really like it.

This gluten-free recipe is one of the recent healthy breakfast ideas I have found that is also dairy-free, nut-free and paleo.

”Power greens” might be what you’d call a combination of several of those leafy antioxidant-, fiber- and vitamin-rich “powerhouse veggies” like kale, spinach, chard, beet greens and the like.

A combination of them makes a wonderful salad, and they add a variety of textures and flavor to a stir-fry. They also “wilt” deliciously to be folded into an omelet…so in this recipe they become part of a “power greens omelet.”

Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker, Naturally Gluten-Free

Nourishing and warming Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker is naturally gluten-free.

Butternut squash is easy to cook several different ways, including the slow cooker, the stove top, the microwave or the oven. I’ve used each method in the past and found that they all have their advantages.

For this recipe I focused more on the set-it-and-forget aspect of a crock pot to cook the squash while I went about doing other things for a while.

All I did before putting it in the crockpot was to halve it and seed it.

Gluten-Free Roasted Chicken

Gluten-free roasted chicken with spice rub is a great way to perk up your dinner.

The aroma…the texture…and the taste are different, even if the same seasonings are used, as your favorite chicken breast recipes. Of course, chicken pieces are often easy to make and usually quick to cook, which makes them popular for a weeknight meal in a busy schedule.

I know because I often have gluten-free chicken on my menu. Everyone in the family enjoys eating it.

However, a whole chicken roasting in the oven is an entirely different dish than just chicken breasts or thighs. As I said, the aroma is different. The texture is different. And the taste is different, so…

…try a whole roasted chicken, unstuffed, with a spice rub for dinner. It takes a little longer to cook than chicken pieces, but once it is in the oven, it is easy from there on. A whole chicken can also be stuffed, but that adds to the cooking time, so I’m going with the simpler, shorter option with this recipe.

Sweet Potato Chili

Do you ever wonder what you can do with sweet potatoes?

Can you imagine sweet potato chili?

A lot of people, some of them in my own family, would rather go hungry than eat sweet potatoes.

But, due to a medical problem I was recently diagnosed with, they are getting only what I can cook and eat for myself… poor babies.

So, it’s out with the old standbys like white potatoes, rice, and GF pasta. And, in with the new like…

Chicken Stuffed Peppers Kissed by Cheddar

When summer gardens start producing peppers and tomatoes, it’s time to cook some chicken stuffed peppers. The flavors are always popular… and who can resist the eye-candy appeal of those rich, contrasting colors and textures in the dish?

This version is “lightened up” with chicken so it will be a little healthier…my original version is made with beef.

There are so many wonderful ways to cook chicken stuffed peppers while peppers are in season. I like to use cubed chicken breasts in my chicken stuffed peppers because everyone in my house absolutely loves them! Here in N.E. Ohio, this year’s crop of green bell peppers were so succulent that my husband (Al the Grinch) even commented about how good and tender they were.
