Original Delicious Healthy Recipes including Salmon, Mushrooms, and Spinach Turkey Dogs - Share your Recipes.

Updated on May 23, 2011

I like to cook and eat healthy, but I like to make quick meals that are filling. I have 3 recipes that I like to think are original, although I am sure other people have created them. I just never met them.

I have to apologize that the photos of these dishes are a little blurry. I took them from a flip cam and then created a snapshot, but I think you get the picture (pardon the pun)

Please feel free to share your recipes for quick healthy meals. I am always trying new recipes from other people.

Buffalo Grilled Salmon

If you like seafood and spicy foods, Buffalo Salmon is an excellent healthy recipe

I love seafood and if you are going to eat fish, it may as well be a fish that is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. I grilled a simple salmon filet and then added buffalo sauce to it. I also served brown rice on the side.

Health Benefits:

The salmon is high in omega 3 fatty acids which are powerful antioxidants that lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and slows the aging process. All fish contain Omega 3's, but salmon contains one of the highest amounts of it.

The buffalo sauce is not all that healthy, but it is almost fat free. It is high in sodium like most sauces, but if it is weight loss or lower cholesterol that you are aiming for, buffalo sauce is a great alternative to butter, sour cream, or dressings. If you love spicy food, this is a no brainer. If you need to control your blood pressure, you can always grind up a red pepper in a food processor and substitute it for the buffalo sauce.

Portabella Mushroom - Potato Medley

I like to eat vegetables as often as I can, but I am no vegetarian, so I do what I can. When it comes to meals, I like lots of tomatoes, onions, and potatoes, so why not throw them on a portabella mushroom?

I also sprinkled a few teaspoons of olive oil when I used to add melted butter.

Health Benefits:

The tomatoes were grilled which brings out the lycopene, another antioxidant that increases with heat and lycopene is also known to lower the risk of prostate and ovary cancer.

The red onion contains powerful antioxidants that lower the risk of stomach cancer.

Potatoes are high in fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin A.

I now eat olive oil often in place of butter. Olive oil is a monosaturated fat meaning that it lowers your LDL (bad cholesterol) and raises the HDL (good cholesterol). The only thing (as I have read) bad about olive oil is that it is high in calories, but you do not have to worry about cholesterol like other oils. Use it, especially extra virgin olive oil, in your dishes.

Spinach Turkey Dog

Spinach Turkey Dog

I made this one in less than 3 minutes. I popped the turkey dog in the microwave and cooked it on medium *60%" for 45 seconds and then stuck a few spinach leaves in the bun, and sprinkled some olive oil on it instead of mustard. Once in a while, I add some red onions to this sandwich.

The turkey frank contains half the fat of beef franks and they taste just as good. Plus the spinach is full of fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin A.
