Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

Mushroom-N-Onion Stuffed Burger
Very Good 4.1/5
(10 ratings)

Rather than topping your burgers, try stuffing them. Including veggies saves fat and calories, adds moisture and flavor, and offers a surprise twist.

Add Lipton onion soup mix too! One packet works fine! Rotel works in place of the stewed tomatoes for a spicy kick! Soup Mix not included in nutrition value

I make this for lunch or dinner when I am in a hurry. It is very filling and low in calories and fat.

I sometimes substitute the Red Pepper Flakes for Fenugreek or Curry Powder because my daughter doesn't like "spicy".
I also like to throw in cooked chicken or shrimp with the vegetables to turn it into a complete meal.

Meat Loaf with applesauce
Very Good 4.3/5

I prepare in small loaves so i can freeze individual loaves for later. ...the applesauce lightens the meat load without affecting the flavor or the texture!
