Savory Tomato Pie Recipe: I received this recipe from a true southern belle friend ages ago albeit there was one distinct difference. And it really makes a huge difference,,, switch mozzarella for Parmesan. And extra sharp cheddar adds a layer of depth you'll appreciate along with freshly ground pepper on each tomato layer.
.OMG, where has this been all my life! Looks sooo good.

Savory Tomato Pie Recipe. No pie crust though!
Tomato pie - (try this savory pie with NO jalepenos)
Fresh Tomato Pie Oh this was tasty... My only mistake- I was in a hurry and didn't drain the tomatoes as well as I should have which made for a soupy pie (still delicious). Lay slices on a paper towel for about 10-15 minutes and flip to the other side for 10-15 minutes. Also. fresh home-grown tomatoes make this even better!
Savory Tomato Pie Recipe Little different than Paula Dean's. 1/2 mayo, 1/2 greek yogurt. 33 minutes at350, then browned under a low broiler. Deeeeeelicious!

There is no other way to eat them now that I have tried them this way! Clean them, cut them in half, mix EVO, onion powder, sea salt, and juice from 1/2 of a lemon, stir the sprouts in the mixture and place on a cookie sheet and bake for 25 minuets. Oh and make sure you put all the leaves that fell off on the pan... they get really crispy and are a treat to the palate!

Smoothie Recipes for Everything The sweetness of your smoothie heavily depends on the ripeness of the fruit you add. If you find your smoothie needs a little more sweetness, try to avoid sugar (if you must, use brown sugar), and instead add a little honey (preferably Manuka!), cinnamon (sweetens without actually adding calories), xylitol, stevia, figs or dates. 1. PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE The idea of a pre-workout snack is to make sure you have enough energy and sufficient stamina to give your workout all you’ve got. If you’re hungry, you’ll lack energy and drive, which means you won’t be exercising as hard you could. Some people can get away with exercising on an empty stomach, but if you’re the kind of person who has to eat little and often to avoid feeling faint (or road rage), you’ll definitely do well to have a little something before your workout. The ideal pre-workout snack should be easy to digest (to avoid an upset stomach during your workout) and rich in carbohydrates. Consume the smoothie at least 30 to 60 minutes before, depending on how much you’ve drunk/ how hungry you are and what’s in it. Remember, you only want to fuel up enough to bring your A-game. A pre-workout smoothie is not an excuse to down a days worth of calories from a smoothie bar. For maximum performance, keep it little and light. ½ cup frozen strawberries/ blueberries/ mixed berries ½ banana ½ cup low-fat Greek yogurt ¼ cup milk (skim/ almond/ soy) – enough to get your preferred consistency Ice cubes 2. POST-WORKOUT SMOOTHIE After a strenuous workout your main goal is to hydrate, replenish glycogen stores and jumpstart muscle recovery. A post-workout smoothie should be made of carbohydrates and plenty of protein; it should also be relatively easy on the digestive system and quickly processed by the body. Just like pre-workout, a post-workout smoothie is not an excuse to down a pint or two of smoothie drink – its purpose is purely functional. Be sure to drink up within 30 minutes to 2 hours after your workout. If you’ve been exercising at moderate to high intensity for longer than 60 minutes, try to re-fuel within 30 minutes. 1 dash of cinnamon (helps regulate and keep blood sugar levels steady) 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter (or almond butter) 1 medium banana (preferably frozen for extra creaminess) 1/3 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt 1/2 cup almond milk 1 cup ice To boost nutritional content try adding a handful spinach or kale. 3. MUSCLE BUILDER Building muscle is not just about strength training, but ensuring you’re meeting your body’s nutritional needs and providing your body with sufficient protein. Research shows that consuming a protein rich smoothie post-workout can stimulate protein synthesis and muscle recovery, in other words aid muscle growth. 1 scoop chocolate whey protein 8 oz. low-fat chocolate milk 1 medium banana (frozen) Ice 4. WEIGHT LOSS SMOOTHIE The goal here is to create a smoothie packed with nutrients that is super filling, but low in calories, that you can have for breakfast or lunch. In other words, it’s not a snack (i.e. in addition to regular meals), but a meal replacement (instead of meals). To make a meal, a smoothie needs to include carbohydrates, protein and a little fat. Fat is important because helps you feel full, as does protein. 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 scoop whey protein powder ½ medium banana 1 cup frozen mixed berries ¾ cup milk (skim/ almond/ soy) 3 to 5 ice cubes Mixed berries (carbohydrates) provide energy and are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and are a natural sweetener. Chia seeds are incredibly rich in omega-3 fatty acids (healthy fat), protein antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Chia seeds also contain super high levels of soluble and insoluble fiber, making them uncannily filling and a great addition to low-calorie smoothies. Filling smoothie ingredients: chia seeds, ground psyllium husks, whey protein, low-fat Greek yogurt. 5. BELLY BUSTER To make a belly-busting smoothie, add a source of MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) and to aid weight loss add low-fat yogurt. Research shows that MUFAs help target belly fat, and yogurt has been shown to aid weight loss and reduce bloating (read more here). 1 Tbsp cold-pressed organic flaxseed oil (MUFA) 1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries 3/4 cup milk (skim/ almond/ soy) 1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt Sources of MUFA to add to smoothies: flaxseed oil, avocado, nut butter (e.g. peanut butter, cashew butter), dark chocolate chips. 6. LOW CARB SMOOTHIE Load up on high quality protein with a carbohydrate source packed with nutrients (i.e. fruit or vegetable). To sweeten use a sweetener such as Stevia or Splenda. 1 scoop protein powder 1 cup frozen, mixed berries 1 cup cold water ¼ cup low-fat cottage cheese 1 packet Splenda sugar substitute 7. METABOLISM BOOSTER This tasty smoothie is designed to be filling, nutritious and boost metabolism. The base of this smoothie is green tea, which boasts both caffeine and catechins, substances shown to speed up metabolism. This smoothie is also rich in protein, which also has metabolism boosting effects. ½ tbsp honey 1 cup mango chunks ½ cup non-fat vanilla yogurt ½ cup brewed green tea, cooled to room temperature 1 cup ice (about 6 cubes) 8. PALEO POWER This paleo friendly smoothie is filling and full of nutritional goodies. Herbal tea makes a great base as it is rich in anti-oxidants and depending on which herbal tea you choose will have specific health benefits (e.g. peppermint for digestive issues, etc). 1 scoop egg white protein powder 1 tbsp nut butter 1 cup frozen berries (mixed or otherwise) 1 cup brewed, chilled herbal tea ½ cup crushed ice 9. THE INVIGORATOR This green smoothie will energize and invigorate the senses. 1 teaspoon lime juice 1 tbsp honey (if needed) 1 handful of spinach (or other leafy greens) 1 apple 1 pear 1 ½ cups chilled ginger tea* Ice cubes Bring about 2 cups of water to the boil. Grate or slice thinly about 1” of ginger root and add to boiling water. Cover saucepan and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain. Cool. 10. BREAKFAST IN ONE Smoothies are perfect for breakfast on the go. All the goodness of a healthy breakfast in one cup. Quick cook oats and nuts help to slow down the absorption of sugar from the fruit, keeping blood sugar levels steady, and giving you more energy for longer. Yogurt and milk are rich in protein, which makes this smoothie filling. The fruit are a source of vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber and carbohydrates, making the smoothie nutritious and energizing. ¼ cup quick cook oats (not instant) ¼ cup nuts (walnuts, almonds, or pecans) 1 ripe banana 1 cup frozen fruit (mango, blackcurrants, or strawberries) 2 ½ tbsp low-fat yogurt 1 cup of milk (skim/ soy/ almond) 11. KOFFEE KICK Wake up with this delicious blend. ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 1 frozen banana ¾ cup frozen low-fat vanilla yogurt 1 cup chilled strong black coffee 12. HANGOVER HERO This smoothie is a meal in a glass and packed with nutrients to make up a little for last nights indulgences. Banana provides energy, ginger will help settle the stomach and help with nausea. Yogurt helps to soothe the digestive tract. Pomegranate juice super nutritious and contains high levels antioxidants. If you don’t have Pomegranate juice to hand, try cranberry or blueberry juice. Alternatively, add a cup of frozen mixed berries. Nut butter is rich in protein and healthy fats, which will help you feel full and provide lasting energy. 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger 1 – 2 teaspoons almond butter 1 banana ½ cup low-fat yogurt ½ cup Pomegranate juice Ice cubes 13. SLEEP INDUCER Is there anything worse than laying in bed trying to sleep, concentrating on trying to sleep, and thus not getting to sleep at all? You can’t mentally force yourself to sleep (a self-defeating effort); but you can physiologically. To that end, this smoothie is made up of foods (banana, peanut butter, milk) that contain tryptophan, a sleep-promoting substance, which is converted to serotonin or melatonin. This smoothie is also rich in carbs and calcium, which intensify the effect of tryptophan. Cherries contain melatonin and bananas are a great source of potassium and magnesium, which are natural muscle relaxants. 1 tbsp peanut butter 1 tbsp sesame seeds ¼ cup pitted cherries ½ banana 1 cup milk (skim/ almond/ soy) Ice cubes 14. THE CHILLAXER Sit back and chillax. Enough for two – or just one. 1 dash nutmeg 1 splash vanilla extract 1 tbsp honey 1⁄4 cup ground almonds 2 ripe bananas (preferably frozen for extra creaminess) ½ cup vanilla yogurt ¼ cup chilled chamomile tea (a calming tea) ¼ cup milk (skim/ almond/ soy) Ice cubes 15. STOMACH SOOTHER This all-rounder will address all manner of digestive woes. Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which has a soothing effect on the stomach and aids protein digestion. Ginger tackles nausea and fights flatulence. The probiotics in yogurt help increase friendly bacteria in your digestive tract, aiding digestion and reducing air. This smoothie is also rich in fiber. Fiber helps move food through the digestive tract, cleaning it out and removing toxins from the body. 1 tbsp ground flax seed 1 tsp sliced ginger 1 cup frozen sliced peaches 1 cup peeled, seeded, cubed papaya 1 medium pear, cubed, skin optional 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt 6 ice cubes 16. THE DETOXER The Detoxer looks just like a regular fruit smoothie, pinky red and smooth. It is in fact loaded with the goodness of beetroot and carrot, which are detox favorites. Beetroot boasts antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties and carrots are rich in anti-oxidants. Ginger is anti-inflammatory, while apples and pears are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants. Spirulina is a super concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein. 1 tsp spirulina (optional) 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice 2 tsp minced fresh ginger 1 sweet apple 1 ripe pear 1 beet* 1 carrot* Ice *Steam carrot and beet until just about tender (approx 10-15 minutes). Cool. 17. SKIN SMOOTHER Just as weight loss is a combination of diet and exercise, so is great skin a product of good skincare and nutrition. This skin-smoothing smoothie is rich in anti-aging vitamin E, sun-damage-fighting healthy fats, collagen-boosting vitamin C, and wrinkle-reducing oleic acid from wheat germ, flaxseed, berries and avocado respectively. 2 tbsp ground flax seed 1 cup blueberries 1 cup pitted cherries ½ cup strawberries ¼ avocado ½ cup low-fat yogurt Ice cubes 18. IMMUNE BOOSTER Boost your immune system and beat the cold and flu season with this smoothie loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin C from mango, cantaloupe, and pineapple, as well as almonds and almond milk, which are packed with zinc, an immune system booster. 1/3 cup ground almonds 1 cup chopped cantaloupe ½ cup cubed pineapple, fresh or canned 1 Banana 1 cup peeled, pitted, cubed mango ½ cup unsweetened almond milk Ice cubes CORE SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS Below are the building blocks of any healthy smoothie. These core ingredients don’t just look pretty or taste awesome, but offer significant health & fitness benefits. Yogurt is packed with protein, calcium and tummy friendly probiotics. Go low-fat & Greek. Full fat yogurt is high in calories. Greek yogurt is high in protein & low in carbs. To up the protein content of any smoothie, try adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt or silken tofu. Milk is another great source of protein, calcium & other nutrients. Go for skim milk. Can’t tolerate it? Try soy, rice or almond milk. Whey protein is an awesome means of boosting the protein content of a smoothie & also make it more filling. It’s a no-brainer for low-calorie smoothies. And of course, ideal post-workout. Fat has got a bad rap. But there are healthy fats that the body needs. Also, fat helps you feel full. Zero-fat foods are not filling. Your body needs fat to absorb important nutrients. Sources of healthy fats: fish oil, avocado, nuts, flaxseeds, peanut butter & more. Also, choose low-fat milk and yogurt, instead of the nonfat variety. Rich in potassium, vitamin B6& other nutrients bananas are filling, add sweetness, the mild taste means they go with almost everything & it’s rich consistency binds the ingredients in smoothies together. Berries are an antioxidant powerhouse, chock full of vitamin C & phytochemicals, conferring a plethora of health benefits. Naturally sweet & available fresh or frozen. Tea is a healthy & tasty way to customize a smoothie. Green tea, Rooibos, peppermint, etc. confer different health benefits. Try fresh-brewed tea, tea ice cubes or tea powders. What’s a smoothie if not cold & smooth? Use plain ol’ H2O or freeze fruit juice, green juice, tea, coffee, yogurt or milk. Also, try freezing bananas for extra creaminess.
