Flavorful zucchini, red and yellow peppers served on top of chicken marinated with herb and garlic marinade. I got this recipe from the Mrs. Dash website but I couldn't find the Mrs. Dash Herb and Garlic Marinade so I just used Lawry's brand and it turned out great. This recipe is incredibly simple to make with virtually no clean up and the best part is it's low fat and low carb!

This is absolutely wonderful and low fat but doesn't taste like it. The lemon flavor is very rich and full and great for fresh blueberries just picked from the bushes. This recipe has been adapted from Kraft but changed to reflect low fat at 80 calories per serving rather then 160.

This low fat peanut butter creation is both salty and sweet. I saw it on Cook Yourself Thin (Lifetime show) and love it

Moist, delicious cake that your friends won't know is healthier for them than the regular version! My mother-in-law made this for my birthday, based on a regular recipe with Splenda substitutes and adding a box of sugar free pudding to keep moisture in the cake.

Very easy, very healthy, and MUCH more flavorful than other low-fat chili recipes! Don't be scared away by the longer list of ingredients. All of the spices are dried, easy-to-use, and you probably already have them in your pantry. The few extra minutes are WORTH it!

I found this recipe someplace online over a year ago and tweaked it to taste. VERY EASY, very juicy and goes great with green beans and applesauce.
I "eye-ball" measure when I cook this sort of thing, so the measurements given for the marinade ingredients should be to your taste (but DON'T use less Hoison than listed- this is the main taste of the dish!)
This has become the recipe everyone who comes over for dinner wants me to make....and it is SO EASY!
(BTW-you can find Hoison sauce in the asian area of your grocery store-it will be by the soy sauce, teriyaki and other asian sauces and seasonings)

Surprise -- Crunchy and sweet, but full of spinach! Let the bars cool completely before serving so that the taste of the spinach has a chance to disappear completely. See Oprah website for more of Jessica Seinfeld's recipes.

Easy to multiply to fit # of guest. You may want to use shrimp or lean beef that has bee grilled; however, you will need to adjust the calories to accomidate the different protein.
