Aloha Appetizers & Super Hero Side Dish Recipes
I love Kale Chips. They are crunchy and naturally salty. My kids fight over them 🙂 Kale: a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; considered to be anti-inflammatory. Contains sulforaphane, a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties. Wow!
Capsaicin, the pungent alkaloid in jalapeños and other chile peppers that makes them hot, not only puckers the mouth and burns the tongue but also drives prostate cancer cells to kill themselves off, according to studies published in the March 15 issue of Cancer Research.
I first made this recipe when I was a NFL cheerleader. I have since modified my original recipe to be much healthier using organic veggies and more protein. This healthy side dish is always gone before kick off! It has lots of protein and veggies. Kids and adults love it! And it’s great for parties!
Aloha! Here is a family favorite recipe for Pineapple Salad. I modified it to include more protein and no sugar added. It is a delicious and refreshing Salad that is ideal for parties since it stays fresher longer. Fresh pineapple is the best, but canned in water works too.
This is one of my all time favorite recipes! This fool proof recipe has been in my family for decades. I modified it so it’s “lower” in sugar than traditional banana bread and super easy for busy people. This is a delicious way to use up over ripe bananas. So before you toss out those too ripe bananas, make this yummy bread. It’s delish to reheat in the toaster oven.

Here is one of my favorite recipes that I have been making ever since the bodybuilding & Kiana’s Flex Appeal days! Now I make it for my kids and they LOVE it! I make this every week and keep it in the refrigerator to add to lettuce wraps, in taco shells, in pita bread, put on pizza, or stuff bell peppers. It’s great for lunches and to put in air tight containers to enjoy with baked tortilla chips for lunch on the go.
Here is a favorite recipe I love to make. It is so healthful and it is impressive to serve. It makes me feel good to know I am feeding my family this healthy and oh so delicious, hearty soup. It is filled with fresh vegetables and the wonder vegetable: Kale. Enjoy!

Kiana’s Sunset Chicken Lemon Garlic Chicken with Crunchy Roasted Potatoes Why I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe: 1 dish wonder: super easy cleanup! Great dish
This recipe is ideal for lazy nights when you’re too exhausted to cook. It’s simple to make but REALLY HEALTHY! I buy a pre roasted chicken and bagged Arugula. This is terrific to serve alongside my Adobo Chicken or Sesame Ahi Tuna. Aloha!
This salad dressing has been in my family for generations. I modified it to be lower in sodium and fat. It is simply delicious and can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. My kids always ask for extra salad when I use this dressing!
Low fat Clam Dip. I usually make dinner at sunset, my favorite time of the day. When I am making dinner, I always put out appetizers. This way, my kids and husband enjoy healthy veggies and pita chips while we talk and I cook.
