No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
Very Good 4.6/5
(471 ratings)

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

If you are cooking for someone on a low sodium diet, use this recipe instead of taco seasoning. This recipe is the equivelant to one package of taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons.) Adjust the strength of any ingredient to your taste.

Only 99 cals/1 cup serving!

Healthy, low carb, low cal. low fat recipe.

Prepare this fast, easy, delicious recipe in the crockpot.
Directions for stovetop or oven casserole are also given, as well as info on low sodium alterations and a delayed crockpot start.

It's even faster (10 mintes to prep) and easier (just dump all ingredients into crockpot) if you brown quantities of hamburger in advance (4 pounds fits nicely in my large skillet), then degrease and season it with beef soup base and dried onions. Freeze it in 1 to 1.5 # ready-to-use Zip Loc freezer bags; be sure to note the weight on each bag, for calculating nutrition.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.
