Easy Homemade Healthy Granola

A delicious, healthy snack that even the kids will love!  This is wonderful as is, or change it up to make it your own.  Add  dried fruit,  chocolate chips in place of the cacao nibs, or raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.  Pistachios taste especially good in this also!

This is the ideal snack if you are following an alkalizing diet!

This granola is perfect for using in my Fruit and Yogurt Parfait:  http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/fruit-yogurt-parfait/

This works great as a cold cereal with milk.  It is also wonderful served on oatmeal for a little extra flavor and crunch:

Oatmeal

A healthy way to start your day.  This is made from whole grain oats.  Suggested toppings:  brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts, raisins, preserves, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, dried cranberries or cherries, yogurt, granola, chocolate chips, honey, or syrup

My preference is honey and granola (http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/easy-homemade-healthy-granola/); my husband likes brown sugar.

Baked Potato Soup

Thick and creamy, uses up your leftover baked potatoes.  Or make extra potatoes for this soup!

To make this gluten free, just substitute 1/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch mixed with some of the milk in place of the flour.  Bring the rest of the milk to a boil, then slowly add the cornstarch mixture and stir to thicken.  Or sorghum flour works great for soups and sauces.

Easy Cilantro Lime Fish

My husband and I both loved this fish!  It was so good that we were wishing that I had made more than one filet for each of us.  Mild white fish seasoned and cooked in a skillet, then topped with a cilantro lime butter.  Delicious!

If you prefer, you can use flounder or tilapia instead of cod.

New England Clam Chowder

Thick, hearty and flavorful.  You can substitute other kinds of seafood and make it into a seafood chowder if you prefer.  I added shrimp and lobster in place of some of the clams in the 2 photos of the chowder in the pan.
