Pantry items to create a wonderful pilaf: Quinoa, organic canned soybeans, slivered almonds, chopped dates (or dried cherries), olive oil...I add some chopped scallion or onion and then stuff the pilaf into a giant ripe tomato from my garden!

I throw together Energy bars for my boys with Soaked dehydrated nuts, Dates, Raw Honey, Shredded Coconut, Cacoa Powder and some mint extract. And then throw them in the freezer, they're like frozen Raw Mint-Chocolate Cookie Dough!

Pasta salad is a great meal that can be made with primarily pantry staples and then whatever fresh veggies you have on hand. I love whole wheat penne tossed with chick peas and kidney beans, spinach, red onion, tomatoes, and herbs, dressed lightly with a vinaigrette.

Take a can of peaches from your pantry. Open can. Reserve liquid. Chop peaches into bite size. Put spoonful of peaches in each section of ice cube tray. Fill with reserved liquid. Freeze an hour or so until semi-firm. Insert craft stick into each cube. Freeze overnight. Makes lovely cold peach pop-sickles.

For a frosty, chocolatey treat with a nutritional punch, I mix together 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup melted chocolate chips, 1 large banana, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1 tbsp chia seeds, and 1 tsp cocoa powder; drop the mixture into six or seven cookies; and freeze for an hour.

Good ol' peanut butter and jelly sandwhich bites. Organic peanut butter and 365 fruit spread on whole wheat bread. Cut sandwhiches into fours or maybe even sixes and snack on them while enjoying the outdoors. :-)

One of my favorite quick and easy meals is Quinoa with Italian sausage. It's all about the combination of the spices. Saute some onions and garlic, throw in some squash, zuchini and sausage, brown lightly. Add some alcohol free red wine. Let it simmer for a minute so everything soaks up that nice flavor then add the quinoa and cook until done. Voila!

I started making my own granola when I was a Girl Scout leader and wanted something healthier than the commercial products. I still love to make it as an easy, nutritious snack.

My daughter and I love the Kashi crackers, we spread them with the 365 almond butter and slice fresh strawberries on top. We also add a drizzle of Agave to the top to add a little extra something. They are so so tasty.
