I make a hot vegan oatmeal bake with fruit. I add some steel cut oatmeal, bananas, stevia packet, coco nibs, cinnamon, and almond milk in a ramekin with foil over it and bake it at 350 for about an hour. Tastes yummy and you can change things up with peaches, blueberries, or your favorite fruit. Very healthy!
That sounds amazing!! Even the blueberries Brett!

Since I was a kid, I have loved celery filled with cream cheese and sprinkled with paprika. A fast, low fat healthy snack that curbs my hunger. Love it.
Sounds refreshing and perfect for hot summer days!
Raw walnuts. They keep me from grabbing unhealthy food for a quick bite and they are great added to salads and desserts and many casseroles. A bag in my car, a bag in my purse, a bag on my kitchen counter. I understand they are good for your heart and contain the good kind of fats.
I like to make a double batch of Muffin Frittatas and freeze them. They make a quick, nutritious meal when paired with fruit. Just pop in the microwave to reheat. Also, the fat and calorie content can be reduced by using fat free or low fat milk and cheese. I have substitued coconut milk or almond milk for the milk in this recipe without any problems.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz.)
3/4 cup chopped zucchini
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 tbsp. chopped red onion
Yields: 6 servings/12 muffin frittatas
HEAT oven to 350°F. BEAT eggs, milk, salt and pepper in medium bowl until well-blended. ADD cheese, zucchini, bell pepper and onion; mix well. SPOON evenly into 12 greased muffin cups, about 1/4 cup each.
BAKE in 350°F oven until just set, 20 to 22 minutes. COOL on wire rack 5 minutes. REMOVE from cups; serve warm.
These flavorful muffin frittatas can be made ahead; just reheat in the microwave for a quick breakfast, snack or appetizer.
Quick breakfast solutions: Bake muffin frittatas the night before and refrigerate. Quickly re-warm in the microwave in the morning.
Lighter Option: This frittata muffin recipe can be made with reduced-fat cheese, if desired.
Hi ya Brett! Wheat grass, whether as a drink or a ‘graze’ I find it very energizing and soul tickling!

I tried to edit my post, but HSN is having a problem with their website in many different places. Here is an updated edit addition.
You can also blend Zucchini Stew into a chilled or hot drink after cooked, like a V8 / Bloody Mary mix, just add 1 Tbsp Worcester sauce, hot pepper sauce, and salt as needed.
Hummus! I’m a dipper and hummus is great to dip things in.
Vegetable soup is always good. I usually like some beef in it also, chopped really small.
