Chicken Stock
Very Good 4.5/5
(55 ratings)

After you've roasted a chicken or turkey don't throw away the bones. They can be used to make homemade, low-sodium stocks, which can add flavor to your healthy, home-cooked meals.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Very Good 4.3/5
(50 ratings)

This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

Skinny Cheese Fondue
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture!

Spruce up any salad with this creamy dressing! It's spicy but not at all hot! Drizzle over salads, grilled chicken or fish. Use in place of sour cream on tacos or use as base for a pasta salad.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(33 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Slow Cooker Cream of Chicken and Rice Soup
Very Good 4.2/5

Ditch the condensed "cream of whatever" soups and make this instead. You only need 10 minutes of hands-on cooking time for a filling yet light bowl of comforting soup.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(177 ratings)

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away.

Kitchen Basics: Buttermilk Biscuits
Very Good 4.3/5

This Southern staple gets a dose of fiber--with half of the fat of the original. Make a double batch over the weekend and freeze for the busy weekday mornings.

I like to make food ahead of time, so I can just pick and choose from my freezer when I'm in a time crunch. You can add any additional vegetables or meat you like.
