  3. Hot Pockets
  4. Sweet Dessert - Fresh Fruit

Fresh Grilled Veggies:

This is so easy!!  And if you have children who do not want to eat Veggies -- maybe this would be a great way to get them started.

  • Gather all your Veggies
  • Cut or slice those that need it, like Tomatoes, Potatoes, Carrots, etc.
  • Place in a large baggie
  • Sprinkle in about 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil -- And Shake!  (This is where the kids come in)
  • Spread all the Veggies out on a cookie sheet -- Make sure they are a single layer
  • Add Salt / Pepper to taste (I use Garlic Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper)
  • Sprinkle Herbs on top - Optional
  • Place in your oven Set on "Grill" for 20-25 min

This process allows all the natural sugar of the vegetables to come to the surface -- makes them sweeter.

Kids will love the opportunity to shake the bag to coat all the Veggies with the Olive Oil prior to cooking - make them feel like they had a part of the cooking process.  

Pumpkin Soup: By Tara Inchbald Holt

  • Chop your pumpkin into chunks or melon shaped segments (dry the seeds and hull and eat them)
  • Place on a roasting tray
  • Mix in a bowl 1tsp mild Curry Powder and 1tsp Cinnamon Powder with 2tbs Olive Oil
  • Drizzle Pumpkin with Olive Oil and Curry Powder mix
  • Roast in oven till soft and edges are beginning to brown. (Long slow roasting on a low heat like 270 degrees is better than quick blast on a high heat)
  • Once cooled chop the pumpkin (leave the skin on)
  • In a pan, gently sweat 3 Onions, 4 Cloves of crushed Garlic and Grated Root Ginger (Approx 2 inches) - this is for a large pumpkin.  Adjust accordingly.
  • Add the Pumpkin
  • Add enough Vegetable Stock to cover the Vegetable - then more after to adjust the thickness you want.  (Vegetable Stock is is made with Bouillon Powder)
  • Heat trough and blitz up, season with some more Curry Powder as required
  • Add Coconut Milk - to make the soup really special

Ingredients are adjusted based on the size of the pumpkin.  Leaving the skin on the pumpkin gives you a good source of fiber and many of the nutrients found immediately under the skin, so silly to lose them.  Slow roasting will destroy less nutrients.  Pumpkin seeds are a great source of Zinc - so don't waste them.  You can substitute the Pumpkin with Butternut Squash.

Hot Pockets:

This recipe can be anything you desire - Fresh fruit / veggies; broiled veggies; scrambled eggs with onions, beacon, etc.; hamburger meat (sloppy joe style); salad; pieces fried chicken -- now I'm getting hungry.
  • Anything that needs pre-cooking -- pre-cook
  • Take a can of biscuits - roll out each biscuit
  • Fill each biscuit with your ingredients -- but not so full that you cannot close it all the way around
  • Sometimes you may need to add a drop of water to keep the biscuit closed
  • Bake in the oven until golden brown

Now you have Breakfast or Lunch To Go.  The added plus here is you know what and where all the ingredients came from.  Don't forget to support your local Farmers & Markets.

Sweet Dessert - Fresh Fruit:

Who doesn't love a sweet dessert?  I know I do!!  Especially one that can be good for you!  Shhhhh!

  • Get some Fresh Fruit (Seasonal)
  • Put about 2 Tablespoons of Real Sugar in a Skillet and heat until melted
  • Add your Fruit and Stir until it's all coated and heated
  • Now Pour over Sherbet or Ice Cream or Cake

It's quick & easy!!  Most Fruits are small and whole and heat up quickly.  If you want to use larger fruits such as Banana's, Peach's or Apple's - make sure you slice them up first.  The list of Fruit is endless of ideas! 


Have Fun & Enjoy!!
