YUMMY, HEALTHY RECIPES FROM SHAPE UP WITH NANCY LARSON
Here are a few recipes I have tried and tested myself from Nancy Larson, hostess of the 80's exercise show, "Shape Up With Nancy Larson" (see blog below).
ZUCCHINI PIE: Three medium zucchini, 1/2 clove garlic, 1/8 teaspoon dill weed, 2 eggs (beaten), at least 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese (cubed). Slice zucchini in thin pieces and put into a buttered 9" pie pan. Stir garlic and dill weed into the beaten eggs and pour over zucchini, and top with cubed cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes to half an hour, or until lightly browned. Before serving, sprinkle natural sea salt on it to taste. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
BANANA BREAD: 3 bananas, 1/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 beaten eggs, 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour. Mash bananas, add honey and butter and dry ingredients. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. (Nancy's original recipe used half a cup of honey but I used less and it was still delicious. The less sweetener the better!)
BROCCOLI CASSEROLE: 20 ounce package frozen chopped broccoli, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons flour, 6 ounces cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup cottage cheese, 1-1/2 teaspoons butter. Cook and drain broccoli. Beat eggs, add flour and cheese to broccoli. Melt butter in bottom of casserole, add the rest and bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes.
