    A delicious yet low-fat twice-baked potato side dish with a blend of classic Middle Eastern flavours: chickpeas, cumin and coriander. Serve with roasts or with your favourite Middle Eastern main course dish. Adapted from "Practical Cookery: low fat". These potatoes could also be served on their own as a light vegetarian meal. In view of the comments by reviewers about the potatoes being a bit dry, I have added a tablespoon of tahini. I have also added some garlic. I'm not sure how the recipe escaped having garlic in it when I first posted it!

    Recipe #120297

    Ya so it is kinda cheating- BUT these come out so good everytime. Fast, simple and easy. Just don't tell 'em you cheated! They keep for 6 months in the fridge but always disappear faster than that! A family recipe here in TX.

    Recipe #134787

    A fabulously healthy juice drink from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. Commenting on aloe vera, she says that it "has been described as a natural healer because it contains many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes" and she suggests giving youself "a dose whenever you feel low". From the instructions, this is clearly intended to be made using a juicer, but you could use a blender. You would then get the whole of the cucumber and apple, not just the juice. If doing this, obviously remove the apple core!

    Recipe #146074

    There are heaps of delicious-sounding Macaroni Cheese recipes on Zaar. Unfortunately, many are phenomenonally high in all the things many of us are probably trying NOT to eat. This is a low GI recipe, which I am posting in response to Vina's query about low GI foods in a Forum. The recipe is from Annette Sym's website, where you will find other recipes and a lot more information about GI. Annette Sym provides nutritional information for all her recipes, and alternative ingredients, so that after using a few of her recipes the basic GI principles are easily understood.

    An Apple a day! This is the basic juice that you can add any veggie you like. This base is sweet and healthy. Be sure to use organic produce.

    This is my apple and carrot juice with a little kick! Use organic whenever you can. No need to peel. Discard the fiber in your mulch pile!

    Recipe #118434

    An asparagus and almond soup, made with only three main ingredients, which can be served chilled in the summer. Recipes really don't come much simpler than this, and with such recipes it is even more essential than usual to use only the freshest and best quality ingredients you can find. I have adapted this recipe from one I found on an English website, and I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. For the stock, I'd recommend either JKC’s Recipe #124515 or my Recipe #135453.

    Lots of flavor. These are very addictive. Once you had one you'll eat them all. You can eat these hot or cold. And you can try any veggies you like.

    Recipe #90746

    Apparently the high nutritional value of avocados was well known by the Aztecs and the Incas. In the twenty-first century, it’s often what we put with avocado that makes our recipes somewhat less than healthy. This is a super-healthy avocado dip - with tofu, cider vinegar, yoghurt and spring onions – which loses none of the appeal of an avocado dip although it is packed with ingredients so healthy that even your cardiologist will be asking you for the recipe! Serve with crisp raw vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower florets and sticks of celery, carrots and zucchini. Or, if you feel that the dip is healthy enough to make some small dietary sins permissible, serve with your favourite crackers. Adapted from the holistic.com website.

    I just love baked BEETS! Being Red one of the things I like to serve on Valentines Day!

    Recipe #53351

    While the combination strawberries with balsamic vinegar is common in many dishes, the sweet-acidic balance of the vinegar pairs well with other fruits. This dessert whips up in a heartbeat and is the perfect ending to an Italian meal.

    Recipe #135349

    A quick healthy breakfast for those on the run or a healthy dessert!

    Recipe #92369

    Delicious, moist, potassium-rich banana and pecan pancakes with a blend of cinnamon, vanilla and orange. A healthy flavoursome choice for breakfast, brunch or supper, topped with raspberries, strawberries, blackberries or blueberries or with Dancer^'s Banana Lemon Sauce for Pancakes #80841. And if you've never made pancakes before, don't be intimidated: give them a go! I've tried to provide very full instructions for those who haven't yet ventured into the wonderful world of pancakes. Experienced pancake-makers: please just ignore that extra detail in the instructions. You probably don't need any instructions anyway! Adapted from a recipe on an "All-Day Energy" recipe card from Rodale.

    Recipe #119418

    A delicious low-fat smoothie, sweetened naturally with honey, with extra nutrition from wheat germ and sunflower seeds, and extra flavour from cinnamon. A great morning-pick-me-up! I often take some to work in a Tupperware container with a firm lid, and enjoy it as a mid-morning snack.

    Barley has been cultivated since the Stone Age and fermented to make beer soon after. Folk medicine has made use of barley water, made by simply soaking barley in water, as a tonic during convalescence. "Pearl" barley is the name of the grain when it's been polished, after the husk and bran have been removed. It's the form most commonly used in soups. This grain has one significant health advantage compared to most other cereal grains (oats and corn for example) it is very low on the glycemic index. Enjoy this old fashioned, hearty soup!

    Recipe #54120

    A flavoursome Beanshoot, Avocado and Baby Spinach Salad with and Asian Vinaigrette which I have adapted from one of the recipes featured today on Huey's popular TV cooking show. He suggests serving this as an entrée or for a light lunch. Huey (Iain Hewitson) is an Australian chef, who is particularly fond of Asian cuisine. I am posting this for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    I bought a huge bag of baby Spinach at the store and have been looking for ways to use it up. Found something similar to this in my "Weight Watchers Miracle Foods: More Fruits, More Veggies" cookbook. This has been tweaked to my own tastes. The original calls for more beets and less orange. As the original was written it would be 1 point for 1 cup. This might be just a tad more and would be a CORE recipe for WW. Even if you're not on WW though, it is a healthy tasty recipe!

    Recipe #109963

    A scrumptious, low fat, low GI smoothie which I found in the October 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Delicious' and have adapted. Because it's different from other smoothies I've made, I have posted it here for safekeeping - and for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #139955

    I got this from the Cheerios website, they have this new line of Berry Burst Cheerios that are delicious!

    Recipe #142890

    A lovely baked pancake that can be quickly put together without fuss. While this recipe calls for berries, pitted fruits -- peaches, plums, nectarines -- can be used with or instead of berries. If you enjoy tangy flavors, try substituting plain yogurt or buttermilk for half the milk.
