Organic – What Does It Mean?

When we think of the word “organic”, we relate to something that is natural, wholesome, crude, unrefined, untreated.   Most often we think of fruits and vegetables as organic when they have been cultivated in harmony with nature without being treated with chemically enhanced fertilizers and pesticides. 

Fruit Filled Crepes

One of my favorite recipes from my mom, is a recipe for crepes. She usually filled them with creamed, and sweetened, farmer’s cheese. I like my crepes filled with fresh fruits, or fruit preserves ( I use Smucker’s Sugar Free Fruit Preserves), served with fruit syrup (also by Smucker’s), and whipped cream. This dish may be served as a light main course, or as a dessert. Makes about 8 crepes.

Lentils With Mushrooms and Asparagus – Vegetarian Soup Recipe

I was searching for a healthful vegetarian soup recipe, and after reading the Fat Smash Diet recipes, I came up with my own version of the Lentils with Broiled Mushrooms and Asparagus soup.

I used most of the ingredients in that recipe, but in larger quantities, and applied a slightly different cooking process in completing it.  Today I am posting my version, as I am quite pleased with the taste and texture of this hearty soup.

Chickpeas Vinaigrette – Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe

Chick Peas, also known as Garbanzo Beans, is very high in protein, thus an excellent food choice for vegetarians, vegans, and great for Fat Smash Diet folks.

I prefer vinaigrette salads over the ones with mayo, and would easily choose many vegetables over some meats. This Chick Peas Vinaigrette salad is just the perfect combination for me, and you might like it as well.
