Apple Coffee Cake
This cake gets its moistness from the apples and raisins, so it needs little oil.
A refreshing blend of chilled green beans, snow peas, and cauliflower florets, seasoned with ginger and rice wine vinegar.
This is a lovely side dish for chicken or fish.
Beet-All Pasta Salad
Mix pasta, spinach, beets, onion and walnuts in a salad bowl. Combine maple syrup, vinegar, and olive oil in a small jar and shake well. Pour over salad. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until you're ready to eat.
Blueberry Banana Smoothie
Bananas that are getting past ripe work perfectly in smoothies. Peel them, wrap them in plastic, and freeze them.
