Oatmeal Egg White Breakfast Frittata  
This is a good healthy alternative to pancakes, and one of my personal favorites!  Using oatmeal instead of refined flour makes this dish higher in fiber and more nutritious than a pancake.

3 large egg whites  
cup rolled oats
tablespoon olive oil
cup low-sodium, low-fat organic cottage cheese
cup strawberries, sliced
cup banana, sliced
cup applesauce

In a small bowl, mix the egg whites and oatmeal together.  Heat the olive oil in a heavy small frying pan over medium heat.  Pour the oatmeal and egg white mixture into the warm pan and cook without stirring for 3 - 4 minutes until browned underneath. Turn and brown the flip side for 2 - 3 minutes.
Serve topped with the cottage cheese, fruit, and apple sauce.

Baked Lemon-Herb Chicken
The light breading and the lemon give this chicken dish a lot of flavor and zest but most of the saturated fat has been eliminated by removing the skin and baking it instead of deep frying.  
4 servings

cup whole wheat bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Grated rind and juice of one lemon

teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large egg
4 (4-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts

Preheat the oven to 375F.  In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, sesame seeds, oregano, tarragon, thyme, lemon rind, salt, and pepper.  In another small bowl, beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water and lemon juice.

Lightly grease baking pan with oil or cooking spray. Dip each chicken breast in the egg, lemon mixture and then in the bread crumbs. Place the coated chicken in the baking pan.  Bake for 40 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

Mom's Turkey Vegetable Chili
Mom makes the best chili....and this one is even better the next day!  You can also divide it into individual containers and freeze them for easy meals later in the month.
Many companies make organic ketchup so you can have the great taste of ketchup without the high fructose corn syrup, food coloring, additives and preservatives. The same for Worcestershire sauce ... Annie's Natural is a one of my favorites.  Remember to read the ingredients and buy the product with the fewest additives.
Makes 4 servings

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
8 ounces lean ground turkey 7% fat  
1tablespoon fresh basil
1 tablespoon of dried oregano
1 red pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper diced
1 large onion, diced
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 (19-ounce) can bean medley containing navy beans, lima beans, kidney beans, and chick peas.
1 (12-ounce) can corn kernels or 12 ounces frozen corn
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes (no added salt or sugar)
1 tablespoon chili powder
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
cup ketchup
tablespoon cumin

In a large skillet, heat the oil and saute the garlic over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the garlic begins to brown.  Add the ground turkey, basil, and oregano and continue to cook until the turkey is golden brown, about 10 minutes.  
In a large pot, combine the turkey mixture with the red pepper, yellow pepper, onion, celery, carrots, zucchini, bean medley, corn, tomatoes, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and cumin.  Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer, covered, for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.  Stir the chili occasionally as it cooks to make sure it does not stick to the pot.

Baked Romano Wild Trout  
Wild trout is a cold water fish that is packed with protein and omega-4 fatty acids, also know as healthy fish oils. Romano cheese adds an unexpected flavor when combined with Italian style bread crumbs.  The Nutritional information is provided for the Italian style bread crumbs.
Makes 4 servings

cup Italian style or plain whole wheat bread crumbs
2 tablespoons garlic powder
8 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
1/3 cup lemon juice (or more as needed)
4 (4-ounce)wild trout fillets, rinsed and patted dry
4 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder, Romano cheese, and enough lemon juice to form a paste.

Cut a piece of parchment paper large enough to loosely enclose one trout fillet. Place a fillet on the parchment paper and spread of the paste evenly on top. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of parsley.

Fold the parchment paper to enclose the trout loosely and tuck the ends underneath, creating a sealed pocket. Repeat this process with the remaining fillets. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the center of the fish is opaque.

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Juice of lemon

Quick-and-Easy Turkey-Tomato Penne

Whole wheat or brown rice pasta, which is gluten-free, are healthier options to the version made from white flour because they are not only less refined but will also make you feel fuller longer without eating as much because of the higher fiber content.  Feeling fuller means you consume fewer calories and still feel satisfied.
Makes 4 servings

For the sauce:
12 ounces lean ground turkey 7% fat
2 teaspoon fresh basil
2 teaspoon fresh oregano
16 ounces low-sodium tomato pasta sauce (Muir Glen is a very popular Organic Pasta sauce brand with several different flavors)

For the pasta:
1 cup uncooked whole wheat penne pasta (for each serving)

In a large heavy skillet, cook the turkey, basil, and oregano over medium heat until the turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drain any excess fat. Add the tomato sauce and let simmer, covered, over low heat while you prepare the pasta.  
Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, using about 2 cups of water for every cup of dry pasta and bring to a boil in a medium pot. Drain the pasta and return to the pot. Toss the pasta and the warm sauce to coat evenly and serve immediately.
You can also store individual portions in a microwave-safe container to re-heat for a "brown bag" lunch but be sure to keep the food cool until you are ready to eat.
