As you can see, I've done a lot of cooking today. I like planning ahead for the week and using up everything possible in my fridge before I do any more shopping. We are set for a while. I will make salads and more veggies, but I can fix quite a few meals with the staples above. I also cooked up a double batch of Quinoa, which I will be using to make a stuffing my new Poblano Chile recipe later this week. Oh.. and I have a batch of Creamy Wasabi Slaw in the fridge as well.
I love being prepared with healthy and delicious food at my finger tips. Everything here was made very low fat/calorie without sacrificing any flavor.

    Yum! Everything looks and sounds so good! Any falafel tips you can offer? Mine never seem to turn out quite right, but yours look perfect!

  2. Melody, wow, that's a lot of cooking! Sushi salad is such an interesting idea, and it looks just gorgeous in the photo. I made lowfat goddess dressing today too, from fatfree vegan. It's so delicious! And it would be awesome with falafels...

  3. Wow, Melody! Everything looks fabulous! I just saw falafel veggie burgers on another blog and thought it was so clever. I always bake falafel and really prefer them that way. I would love to see the Wasabi Slaw too!

  4. Everything looks SO good! I totally love the collard/tofu mixture there. That goddess dressing must be fantastic, and probably would be slammin' on falafel. BAKED?! Woah! So much good (in every sense!) food there, Melody. You've been busy, woman. I like it! I like it all!!

  7. Wow. Just wow!

    Can I come to your house for dinner?

    BTW, I tested the recipe last week. It was proclaimed to be one of the best things I've ever made. M had most of it before I could! I'll be posting about it later.

  9. Everything looks great. Are you still following Weight Watchers? It's nice to see such varied and flavourful 'diet' food, though it deserves a better name than that.

    those look amazing. that's what you "throw together" from your fridge??? i usually get a salad. and that's it.

    you are so creative. you should write a book that's "what you can make from what's in your fridge"

  15. How many people are cooking for! They are a lucky bunch. I'm a fan of leftovers myself, it's always healthier, cheaper (and tastier!) then stuff I can buy near work.
    Your goddess dressing looks DIVINE.
