Mediterranean Salmon

(Lotus Says: “I found this recipe in a mag years ago and tweaked it”)

Super healthy foods: olive oil, olives, salmon, tomatoes (cancer fighting lycopene!)

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 6 cloves pressed garlic (adjust if you don’t like garlic as much – I love it!)
  • 1/2 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cherry/grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 shallot bulb peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup pitted, halved kalamata olives
  • 2 salmon fillets
  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, organo, thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, mixing well. Make sure to really blend it all together.
  3. Add cherry tomatoes, shallots, and kalamata olives and mix well.
  4. Place salmon fillets into a baking dish. Spread the mixture onto the fillets, coating salmon completely.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Serve with the mixture still on top of the fillets. So good!

Pumpkin Tomato Chili

(Lotus Says: “this one I pulled straight out of oxygen mag years ago. super yummy cool weather food!”)

Kidney beans: phytochemicals

Tomatoes: lycopene

Pumpkin: carotenoids

All are cancer butt-kickers!

  • 2 lb extra-lean, ground turkey breast
  • 1 lg onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 5 1/2 cups no-sodium tomato juice
  • 2  (14  1/2 oz) cans no-salt, peeled and diced tomatoes, with juice
  • 1 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  1. Add olive oil to a large pot and cook the ground turkey breast on high heat until brown. Stir meat to cook evenly, then separate.
  2. Stir in onion and red pepper and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in beans, tomato juice, diced tomatoes, pumpkin puree and maple syrup.
  3. Season with pumpkin pie spice, chili powder, and nutmeg.

It’s great with cornbread or crusty bread. Tasty and a fun change from traditional chilis
