My 3 Favorite (uber healthy) Recipes!

13 Apr

In celebration of Summer, I thought I’d start with a yummy Iced Tea!

ImageSummer Iced Tea – 6, 1 cup servings

– 6 Cups of Cold Water
– 1/3 cup of loose tea (I break apart tea bags to get the 1/3)
– Lemon Juice (Fresh Squeezed!) To Taste

Put the water in a pot with the tea, stir, and let sit overnight (or about 8 hours). You can add fresh lemon slices as well, or squeeze the juice in.

After the time is up, pour into container using coffee filter.

Sweeten by the glass using your sweetener/sugar of choice, so everyone gets their desired sweetness!

 

 

(Is it?) Cream of Chicken Soup1 Serving (Double for 2)Image
1 garlic cove
1/4 cup onion (chopped)
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup of chicken broth (I use reduced sodium)
3.5 oz chicken breast, precooked.

Boil vegetables in chicken broth, adding  chicken when the veggies start to soften.

Simmer until the veggies are soft, but not soggy (usually 10 minutes).

Remove from heat, and pour into blender, holding the lid down & on the lowest setting at first (very important or your soup will end up on your ceiling!) Once it gets going, use the highest setting for 1 minute.

Pour soup into bowl, garnish with fresh parsley or dill, and of course salt & pepper to taste!

ImageBruschetta (2-3 servings as a meal, up to 4 as a snack)
3 Tomatoes
1 garlic clove
1/4 of a large onion
1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Parsley
Basil
Oregano
Rosemary
Nutritional Yeast (…. or Parmesan)
1 tspn Olive Oil (totally optional!)

Chop veggies up finely, add liquids and spices, as well as sweetener if you wish, I bake for about 10 minutes at 350, and serve with Crackers (Or Melba Toast – This works nice in Lettuce Wraps!) 

The Soup is by far my fave, although my boyfriends fave is the Iced Tea!

Happy Friday the 13th!

    All 3 recipes are great ideas:) The cream (!) of chicken soup looks so creamy and delicious, would never guess it is this healthy. And I like the balsamic vinegar dressing in the bruschetta.
