This is a healthier twist to the traditional German recipe for cabbage and apples. Make sure you use a sweet apple and core it, but don't peel it because it will lose it's shape and you will lose nutrients.

Note: I am restricting my sodium intake so I haven't added salt to this recipe. If/when you add salt, another item (chopped carrots also makes it tasty), swap out, or adjust an ingredient, don't forget to adjust the nutritional info. As it stands now, this will help fill you up but is low in calories, fat, and sodium. :)

This is a no bake stove top version that is quick and easy to make. I guess you could say this is more like an open faced omelet, which is what a frittata is more or less. Although the sodium content may be a little high for some (it is not any worse than a Lean Cuisine), it is a complete and very filling meal for one person that is loaded with much needed vitamins and minerals.

This is a lower sodium, low fat, and generally "diet friendly" version of Spanish rice and beans dish. The chicken broth replaces the oil normally used. The broth, along with the veggies, beans, & salsa, helps maintain moisture and really adds to the overall flavor. This dish is also packed with essential vitamins and minerals! I hope you enjoy it. :)
