Low Fat Banana Toasts
I love bananas for breakfast.
I think bananas a convenient food that can be easily combined with other things to make delicious meals, especially for breakfast.
They are a rich source of potasium (an essential mineral for proper muscle and never funciont), fibre (great to avoid constipation and hemorroids), and high levels of fructose (which is a natural sugar, providing a quick release of energy into your blood source).
A banana french toast is a delicious quick low fat breakfast recipe that you can enjoy almost on a weekly basis (unless you go bananas and decide to have it everyday!)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup of skim milk
1 mashed banana
1 tsp sweetener
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
8 slices of whole grain bread
1 Tbs low fat butter (Cannola based is best)
This is what you do:
First, whisk together the egg whites, skim milk, banana, sweetener and cinnamon till mixed well.
Then, soak the bread slices into the mix on both sides.
Next, coat a large nonstick frying pan with cannola oil spray.
Finally, melt the low fat butter, and add the soaked bread slices onto the pan till they turn golden.
Serve immediately, and top with a teaspoon of honey, or go to my website and get the low fat syrup recipe for this delicious dish.
2 toasts equal 1 serving.
How's that for a quick low fat breakfast recipe!?

Boneless Prime Roast Recipe
When it comes to prime rib and there are two basic camps. One side says you must cook it with the bones attached. The idea is that the bones give more flavor to the meat. The other side says that the meat can be just as flavorful without the bones, and easier to carve. If you want to give it a try, here is a boneless prime roast recipe. There's plenty of variations on the basic boneless prime roast recipe so feel free to improvise.

Finding Delicious Cookie Recipes
Many of us have an inner baker inside us that loves to find new cookie recipes to try. But, where do you find new, tried and true, cookie recipes that your family will love? People are always looking for the newest versions of their favorite recipes to broaden their dinner choices. New crockpot recipes, new chicken recipes, even new fondue recipes are all searched for by those needing something a little different.

Different cultures have their own way of taking some water and mixing it with an all-purpose flour, a rice flour, a wheat flour and adding either barley, buckwheat,soybeans,seaweed or tapioca. After combining whatever ingredients are used with the type of a chosen flour, they work the dough on a floured surface, roll the dough out and let it dry. Until, it is ready to be hand cut or hand pulled into whatever shape of a noodle that is desired. The finished noodle product is dropped into a hot chicken,a hot beef or a hot vegetable both from three to five minutes depending upon the noodle's thickness. After the noodles are finished cooking, they are left in the broth for a few more minutes. The results are something of a phenomenon.

What Wise Guys Eat
When I lived in the North End of Boston, in the nineteen eighties and nineties, I hung around a neighborhood bar from time to time, called The Corner Café. It was located on Prince Street near the corner of Salem Street. And it was indeed a neighborhood place. The owner, Richie Longo, was a neighborhood kid who grew up on Prince Street and duly attended Saint Leonard's School-as his first generation Italian-American parents had-along with all the other neighborhood kids.

Cool Summer Gazpacho
This refreshing tomato soup is a great cool meal for those hot summer days. If you don't like your food spicy, you can leave out the jalapenos, if you like it spicier, just add a few drops of your favorite hot sauce. You can also try adding other vegetables as well. You can try adding some carrots or celery, or roast the tomatoes, onion, and garlic for an added dimension of flavor. Enjoy!
Green vegetables are the food most missing in modern diets. Nutritionally, greens are very high in calcium (120 -190 mg per cup!) They're also high in magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and they are a power house for Vitamin A, C, E and K. Believe it or not, they are also crammed high with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll and many other micro-nutrients and phyto-chemicals ? you just can't get any better than this. Take a look at the following two recipes to help move you into a sensational summer!
