The Fit Kitchen recipes come from nearly two decades of experimentation in the kitchen. Whether we were baking for the Common Sense Cafe in Portland, OR, cooking something up for the Fit Kitchen segment on the news, or testing a recipe for our cookbook, we were always finding new ways to make healthy eating fun and easy.
We’re always looking for new pork tenderloin recipes. This is easy from the perspective that you can marinate it in the morning and it will be perfect when you get home from work and cooks up relatively quickly. Serve with a side of sautéed greens and a baked sweet potato (pureed). Or if you’re pressed for time, instead of the sweet potato, cook up some quinoa – it only takes about 15 minutes.
This was about the most delicious halibut recipe I have ever prepared. It comes highly recommended.

These creamy truffles have a subtle, smoky bite from the chipotle powder. If you like a more fiery chocolate, add up to 1/2 tsp. more chipotle powder. You can also substitute regular chili powder for the chipotle.

These homemade gluten free Samoas are quite the indulgent bundles. In aiming to make them gluten free and as healthy as possible, we used coconut oil in place of partially hydrogenated vegetable oil and we made homemade caramel sauce (from sugar, water, vanilla and 1/2 and 1/2). As a result, the cookies spread a bit and are larger than they should be.
In honor of Girl Scout Cookie week, we wanted to try our hand at making over a few of our favorites. For our version of Thin Mints, we’ve taken out the partially hydrogenated oils, decreased the sugar, removed artificial flavor and coloring and made them gluten free.

This was one of my favorite dishes from a recent trip to India. It’s worth the extra cooking time for the black lentils.
