To get us started, here's mine:

Salad: Gabriel Cousen's Arugula Cumin Salad
2 cups baby arugula
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup tomato, diced
2 Tbsp fresh chives, minced (optional, but I always use them)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp sunflower oil
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp Celtic salt

I also often add about 1/4 tsp kelp flakes.

Combine and mix well.

Soup: Coconut Curry Soup

Breakfast: Brazil Nut-Banana Pancakes

Smoothie: Peach Paypaya Smoothie (1 cup OJ, 1 peach, 1/4 papaya with seeds removed, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg)

Cool! Thanks Carmella! I updated my first post to include those new categories you suggested.

I also updated my second post to add orange juice to the smoothie recipe - I forgot it!

I'm looking forward to trying The Pilgrim's Soup - our local farmer's market has Jerusalem artichokes and I wanted to find a recipe to use them, so that's perfect!

I'm also excited about that chinese herb in the chocolate and coffee recipes ... it's supposed to help with low back pain, which I have. It's on the shopping list now!
