Sauteed Apples and Onions

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
This was once a pioneer favorite. Yes, it sounds weird, but it's delicious. You'll want to have something to go with this that has some protein, like a garden burger or a brown rice packet, both of which you can microwave. Apples and onions only takes about 10 minutes, a few dollars and it's delicious as a topping for rice or even by itself for a light snack.

Banana Juice

My husband taught me this recipe. It's yummy. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you like (not to the blender, just on top).
