  1. All Red and Ready-to-Go Pizza

    Put the flat bread spread with the toppings on a toaster oven tray and use the "top brown" setting. It's ready when the cheese bubbles, in three to five minutes.

  2. April Fool
  3. Base for a Variation on Hummus

    Keep this on hand for a quick meal, or prepare in batches to give as gifts.

  4. Blueberry Banana Smoothie

    Bananas that are getting past ripe work perfectly in smoothies. Peel them, wrap them in plastic, and freeze them.

  5. Blue-Green Canapés
  6. Carrot Oat Bran Muffins

    Applesauce adds moistness without fat. A non-nutritive sweetener also cuts the calories.

  7. Ciabatta Pizza

    Ciabatta, the Italian flat bread popular in toasted sandwiches, makes a handy pizza base. You can reduce the carbs and calories slightly by pulling out some of the soft interior.

  8. Do-It-Yourself Trail Mix

    Toss wheat cereal and cashews with raisins, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, or chopped dried apricots.

  9. Fresh Cranberry Applesauce

    Cook chopped apples and cranberries in the microwave for four minutes. Then stir in sugar or sweetener and mash with a fork to desired consistency.

  10. Peach Berry Crisp

    Fresh peaches and blueberries are nestled under a topping flavored with ginger and lemon.

  11. Peach Melba Smoothie for Two

    Put peaches, yogurt, ice and all but six raspberries into blender and puree. Serve in tall glasses. Garnish with reserved berries. The smoothie will be thick enough to float them on top. Add fresh mint leaves if you have them.

  12. Pineapple Smoothies

    Just three ingredients: pineapple chunks, vanilla yogurt, and ice. Quick and yummy!

  13. Pink Lemonade

    Turn your lemonade pink with fresh, ripe strawberries.

  14. Pitcher-Perfect Iced Tea

    You can use regular, decaffeinated, or herbal tea. Let it steep for five to seven minutes.

  15. Quick Apple Crisp

    Each serving contains about 134 calories, 1 g protein, 3 g fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 28 g carbohydrates, 3 g fiber, and 44 mg of sodium.
