Sweet & Tangy Bean Salad
Very Good 4.5/5
(4 ratings)

This is a sugar free version of My mothers famous bean salad. I use Splenda in order to make this sugar free but you could use any sugar substitute of your choice it doesnt have to be Splenda. It is very IMPORTANT to rinse the canned beans very...VERY well this will help reduce the sodium per serving by almost half as the beans are packed in a sodium based slime.....rinse very well and you can divide the soduim per serving by at least half.

Skinny Cheese Fondue
Very Good 4.1/5
(36 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!

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.)

Feta & Spinach Scramble
Very Good 4.2/5

Celebrate spinach season with this lean and green scramble. Salty feta and velvety eggs combine beautifully with wilted spinach for a filling breakfast that's high in protein.
