Hello Everyone,

With most of us interested in improving our diet, I thought it might be a good idea to have a new forum where members can post Healthy Recipes.  I know I'm always on the search for interesting and healthy recipes to try.  Since we've included some other discussion topics under Support Groups, I thought it might fit best here.  What do you think?

Donna,
There was/is a topic..Anticancer diet, started by dmayes...Debs, on the TNBC Talk forum but I would have to search to see which page. There were several recipes that people had posted, and then it got kind of "lost". Debs and I still exchange recipes, and they all use organic items and are without sugar. Maybe I could copy and paste some of the recipes here? Let me know. Or perhaps we need to just pull up that thread? Maybe Arlene could advise?

Nancy,

Either way would be fine with me.  It would be nice to have some type of place to go to when looking for healthy recipes.

Hey, does anyone have a good pumpkin pie recipe that is very low fat but still tasty?  We have been put in charge of dessert for Thursday.
Love,

I have a pumpkin custard recipe (pie without the crust or with--I MODIFIED IT TO INCLUDE THE CRUST SO KEEP AN EYE ON THE TIME) and it's low sugar and low fat!
 
PUMKIN CUSTARD:    OVEN 325F
 
1 CUP CANNED PUMKIN PUREE
1/4 TSP GROUND CINNAMON
1/2 TSP SEA SALT
1/2 TSP GROUND GINGER
1/8 TSP GROUND CARDAMOM
PINCH OF NUTMEG
2 ORGANIC EGGS
1/3 CUP GRADE B ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP OR 1/4 CUP AGAVE SYRUP (THIS IS SWEETER, LIKE HONEY BY LOW GLYCEMIC)
1 TSP VANILLA EXTRACT
1 CUP ORGANIC MILK OR SOY MILK (I ALSO USE ORGANIC ALMOND MILK, UNSWEETED)
 
STIR PUMPKIN, CINNAMON, SALT, GINGER, CARDAMON & NUTMEG TOGETHER IN A LARGE BOWL.  IN A SMALLER BOWL LIGHTLY BEAT THE EGGS THEN WHISK IN MAPLE SYRUP, VANILLA & MILK.  wHISK THE EGG MIXTURE INTO THE PUMKIN MIXTURE UNTIL WELL COMBINED.
 
POUR THE CUSTARD INTO 6 1/2-CUP RAMEKINS.  PLACE THE RAMEKINS IN A 3" DEEP PAN AND ADD ENOUGH HOT WATER TO THE PAN TO COME UP 2" HIGH AROUND THE RAMEKINS.  CAREFULLY TRANSFER TO THE OVEN AND BAKE FOR 45-55 MINUTES UNTIL A KNIFE INSERTED INTO CENTER COMES OUT CLEAN.  SERVE WARM OR CHILLED.
 
TO USE THIS AS A PIE WITH A SPELT CRUST:
 
1 1/4 CUPS WHOLE WHEST PASTRY FLOUR
1 CUP SPELT FLOUR
2 TSP NO ALUMINUM BAKING POWDER
1/2 TSP SEA SALT
1/2 CUP FILTERED WATER
1/4 CUP EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL (ORGANIC COCONUT OIL MIGHT WORK TOO)
1 TSP GRADE B ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP
 
COMBINE WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, SPELT FLOUR, BAKING POWDER & SALT IN A FOOD PROCESSOR FOR 10 SECONDS TO MIX.  SEPARATELY, WHISK WATER, OLIVE OIL & MAPLE SYRUP TOGETHER THEN POUR OVER THE FLOUR MIXTURE AND PULSE UNTIL THE DOUGH COMES TOGETHER.  GATHER THE DOUGH AND FORM IT INTO A ROUND FLAT DISK.  WRAP IN PLASTIC WRAP AND REFRIGERATE FOR 30 MINUTES.
 
ON A LIGHTLY FLOURED SURFACE, ROLL DOUGH OUT TO 2" LARGER THAN YOUR PIE PAN.  fILL THE PIE PAN, FOLD OVER THE EDGES OF THE DOUGH AND CRIMP WITH YOUR FINGERS OR A FORK TO SEAL. 
 
FILL WITH PIE FILLING AND BAKE 45-55 MINUTES.

An alternate to pumpkin pie is pumkin mousse.  You can make the crust in advance (though this adds calories and fat) or you can make it in individual ramekins without a crust:
 
SPICED PUMPKIN MOUSSE:
 
2 15 OZ CANS PUMPKIN PUREE
1 LP PKG SILKEN ORGANIC TOFU, DRAINED WELL
1/2 CUP ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP (OR AGAVE SYRUP, USE SLIGHTLY LESS BY TASTE)
1 1/2 TSP CINNAMON
3/4 TSP GINGER
1/4 TSP NUTMEG
1/4 TSP CLOVES
1/4 TSP SEA SALT
1/2 CUP NON-FAT ORGANIC PLAIN GREEK YOGURT
1 OZ ORGANIC DARK CHOCOLATE 70 % OR MORE
 
IN A FOOD PROCESSOR COMBINE PUMPKIN & TOFU ABOUT 30 SECONDS.  ADD MAPLE SYRUP, CINNAMON, GINGER, NUTMEG, CLOVES AND SALT FOR ANOTHER 30 SECONDS. 
 
TRANSFER MOUSSE TO A CONTAINER, COVER AND REFRIGERATE FOR 4 HOURS.
 
DRAIN ANY WATER THAT HAS ACCUMULATED FROM MOUSSE,  STIR IT AND SCOOP 1/2 CUP MOUSSE INTO 10 SMALL RAMEKINS.
 
TOP EACH RAMEKIN WITH 2 TSP YOGURT & 1 TSP CHOCOLATE
 
REFRIGERATE UNTIL SERVING

It would be wonderful if you would include carbs and calories with your recipes. I am a diabetic along with everything else, so that info would be very helpful.

Hi,

Found this prior thread started by Donna.
Realize there are several threads on nutrition, "anti-cancer" diets and foods, etc. (See note below.)

Bringing this thread to top of forum topics in case there is interest to share recipes.
Also, maybe if one is looking for " a healthy version" of something, one could ask on this thread.
Then, if someone had such a recipe, that member could post.
For example, remember Donna posted a recipe for Kale Chips......a healthy version of potato chips.
    I have not tried that recipe but will give the link:
             http://www.mdanderson.org/publications/focused-on-health/issues/2011-october/recipekalechips.html

With any recipe given, it would great to give the nutrition info per serving ( Calories, Total Fat,
Sat Fat, Protein, Carbo, Sugars etc) if known.

With caring and positive thoughts,
Grateful for today..............Judy

Thus, bumping up this prior thread.    Thanks Donna for starting it awhile ago.

Found the following this past week......have not tried but it looked good.
Prefer recipes that give grams fat/carb/ etc....oh, well.
So, hoping this healthy looking recipe is really healthy!

From Smashed Peas and Carrots:       No-Bake Energy Bites
http://smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com/2011/08/no-bake-energy-bites-recipe.html

No-Bake Energy Bites
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Mix everything above in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls and enjoy! Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.      Makes 18-20


I tried to put the ingredients into a recipe calculator:
http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator
but did not get to far.
Does anyone have a good recipe calculator when grams of fat/carb/ etc is not given?


Grateful for today............Judy
