MORE Group members’ recipes!

In my never ending pursuit for good eats that are healthy as well as tasty, I am blessed to have group members who willingly share their favorite family recipes. Even as I get to benefit from sampling their creations, I enjoy sharing them with you all, too.

The only thing better than sharing recipes with you is GETTING recipes from you – send your favorites to me HERE and watch for them in this blog.

I have three great recipes today, the first two are vegetarian, the last isn’t:

[Linda says: “This was a hit ………my husband had never ate fajitas w/out meat but he came back for seconds and suggested it the next night!”

  • 1 pkg fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 2 hot house tomatoes, wedged
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced or sliced
  • (if you like to add spicy flavor add 1/3 pkg of fajita seasoning stir fry in a wok or skillet with veg or olive oil,making sure to add tomatoes last!)

Heat up your tortillas and add fresh salsa, salsa, humus, or jalapeños to your taste preference!
