Cruciferous Crunch Salad
Very Good 4.9/5
(7 ratings)

I love broccoli crunch salad, but have loathed the 400 calories per cup of some of my favorites. I've tried multiple times unsuccessfully to create a healthier version that still tastes like my favorite and that helps me enjoy eating these cruciferous powerhouses without the payback. I think I have finally got it.

Kudos to LIBRARYCAT for the initial recipe I found on Sparkrecipes that led me in the right direction. I still wanted something with less calories and sugars. . .and a bigger portion.

Have fun!

Parmesan Tuna Patties (low fat, low carb)
Very Good 4.5/5

These are fast and tasty. If desired, top with a bit of marinara, mustard, etc. This makes 4 small patties, so I usually double the recipe for my family.

Very Good 4.4/5

This is a "crustless" quiche so you save calories, also, use reduced fat Bisquick, reduced fat cheese and skim evaporated milk and egg beaters!

Incredible! 5.0/5

Of course you can use any veggies you have on hand- I like the meatiness of the mushrooms.
I use frozen chopped onions and peppers for convenience.

Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken
Very Good 4.4/5
(69 ratings)

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

Much better for you than traditional tiramisu. Must be made at least 2 hours ahead of time.

Modified from " Low Fat Sweet and Sour Chicken with Brown Rice" to make it serve 2 & use products readily available. make it Beachie, amount of veggies increased & sugar free orange marmalade used. Used mostly frozen veggies as they are out of season & makes for quicker prep.

[Optional to serve over whole grain, brown rice. / separate recipe]
