I’ve been working towards the greatest pizza recipe for over 10 years. Here it is. This is my once every 2 week treat. This recipe make’s 4 servings. So you can only have 1/4.

  • As much garlic as you want
  • As many spice’s as you want (No Salt)

Bake the 2 pizza’s for 12 minute’s at 550 degree’s.

Fish in a Bag

This is a great way to steam fish in the oven. Use one of these super healthy fish:

  • Flounder
  • Orange Roughy
  • Perch
  • Cod

Preheat oven at 475 degrees. Then after you fill a pan with aluminum foil, place the following inside and wrap the aluminum foil around:

  • Fish Fillet from the list
  • Pepper
  • 3/4 cup of white wine
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped, or as much as you want
  • Handful of fresh chopped basil
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

I then eat this with my stand by veggie’s and maybe a potato.

Super Fast Salmon with Fava Beans

  1. 24 Oz Fava Beans
  2. 3 Tbs Thyme
  3. 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  4. Black Pepper
  5. 6 Tbs Lemon Juice
  6. 2 Tbs Eden Organic Brown Mustard
  7. 1/8 Cup Olive Oil
  8. 4 Tbs Chives
  9. Black Pepper
  10. 2 6 Oz Wild Caught Salmon or Tuna (Tuna is a bit Healthier)
  11. 2 Radishes, Diced
  12. 2 Celery Stalks, Diced
  13. Parsley

This meal can be made in 15 minutes if you cook the salmon (tuna) on an outdoor grill. If you cook the salmon on a grill, turn up the heat on full blast on one side and half way on the other side. Put olive oil on a paper towel that has been stacked. Quickly wipe the paper towel on the low heat side of the grill and then place salmon on that same side of the grill. Close the grill lid and let cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook to taste. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, spray a pan, turned to high with PAM. Place salmon in pan and let stand for 5 minutes. Flip the salmon and add a half cup of water, cover and let steam til done to you taste.

Blend the lemon juice, Mustard, 1/4 cup Olive Oil, Chives and pepper. Remove from blender and chill. Blend Fava Beans, Thyme, 2 Tbs Olive Oil, Pepper and then fry in a pan like refried beans.

Take the bean mixture and place in center of plate. Place salmon (tuna) fillet on beans and top with lemon / olive oil dressing. I love this!!

That’s All Folk’s

This is the staple meal’s that make up my diet plan. All healthy, for the most part (pizza). They all taste great to me. Just never ever eat fast food, but instead eat homemade and healthy and you can only lose.
