The Healthy Egg

Have you tried cooking an over-easy or sunny side egg in water? If you’re tired of using grease or butter, this would be the way to go.

It works for scrambled too. Just add ¼ cup of water to your pan and whip up 3 eggs.

Makes 2-4 servings.


My Favorite Saute Mix

 This includes:

Low fat butter, broth or water (your choice)

Fresh green onions

Fresh white onions

Minced/Fresh Garlic

Powder Seasonings (your choice-depends on what you’re cooking)

Once you have simmered the mix for about seven minutes, add to your boiling water for taste. This is great for homemade chili’s, soups and casseroles.

Smothered Chicken with Sauteed Onions and Mushrooms


There is nothing better on a cold day than a bowl of homemade chili.


 1-lg can of Kidney Beans

1- lg can of Stewed Tomatoes

1-tsp of Chili Powder

1-tsp of Oregano Leaves

1- tsp of Basil

1- tbsp of Minced Garlic

1/4 cup of a White Onion

1- bunch of Green Onions

1 1/2 lb –  of Ground Chuck

2 – cubes of Beef Bouillon Cubes  OR 1/3 – cup of Beef Broth

1 1/2 – tsp of non-salt butter

Cook meat in a non-stick pot until done.

Drain grease and set to the side.

Saute the green onions with 1 1/2 tsp of butter and add to meat.

Season meat with chili powder and stir. (You want the powder to mix evenly)

Then add your beans, stewed tomatoes and at this time, decide if you are going to use cubes or liquid broth.

If you’re using cubes, turn up your burner to med-high, bring to a rapid boil, add cubes with 1/3 cup of water and boil for 2 minutes. Otherwise just pour in broth.

Once that’s done, put burner on simmer and cover.

Dice up your onions.

After about six minutes add onion, minced garlic, basil and oregano to chili and cover. 

Cook on simmer for about an hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
