Any easy healthy recipes to share?

I had my tt on 4/8/11 & looking back, the best advice was to make food ahead of time and freeze it.  I also found easy recipes helped a lot in those first few weeks. It was so nice to defrost homemade chicken soup the day I came home from the hospital.   Anyone have any recipes that they can share? Here are mine: Chicken soup: Saute chopped onions in olive oil, saute until soft (about 5 min).  Add salt & pepper & chopped tomato. Saute for 1 min.  Add about 6-8 cups chicken stock & 2-4 cups water.  Bring to boil.  Add chopped carrots & celery & simmer for 20 minutes.  Add green beans & parsley & cook for 8 minutes.  Add chicken (I use the rotisserie chickens that are already cooked).  You can add pasta.  This can be frozen.  It is so good! Breaded chicken: Soak boneless chicken breasts (cut into strips) in milk for 15 min.  Remove & add to baggie with breadcrumbs.  Shake & remove.  Put on foil lined baking sheet that has been greased with a bit of olive oil.  Bake at 500 for 10 - 14 min - until crispy.  You can serve with mustard or ranch dressing.  You can freeze these & also add tomato sauce & mozzerella & serve as chicken parm. Salmon with pesto & sliced almonds: Put salmon onto a foil lined baking sheet.  Top with pesto & sliced almonds (or pistachios).  Bake at 350 for 25 - 30 minutes until flaky.  This is really good!!  This recipe is good for when you are recovering & want to make something easy & healthy.

REAL Peanut Butter Cups. These are a simple treat to make, and healthy for you doesn't get any better than that. To make the chocolate:
1/2 cup Raw Cocoa Butter
1/2 cup Raw Cocoa Paste
(melt in a double boiler on low)
1/2 cup Raw Cocoa Powder
Pinch of vanilla powder
Pinch of Sea Salt
1/4 cup Agave or Coconut Sugar (what ever healthy sweetener you have)
Place a layer of chocolate in your mold - pop in the fridge till it hardens then layer your natural peanut butter and top with more chocolate and refrigerate again till hard. You could add any filling you want, be created ;)
