Quinoa with Spinach and Feta Cheese
Very Good 4.4/5
(361 ratings)

Quinoa is similar to brown rice, with a higher protein content. This is a delicious side dish or light meal.

This soup is very hearty. You could substitute the 1/2 and 1/2 for skim milk if desired. I used coconut oil for cooking the chicken, but if you poach them, you can take out that extra fat too.

This hearty soup is a perfect warm-up on a cold winter night. I got it out of the No Flour, No Sugar cookbook.

Lentil-Rice Casserole
Very Good 4.8/5
(4 ratings)

This is a dish you can use many ways!!! Eat it like a burrito, in place of taco meat on your tacos, as a dip for tortilla chips, or our favorite way is to put just a little in a soft flour taco with a little salsa and low fat sour cream. yummm... however you eat it, it is wonderful! Make it healthier with a whole wheat tortilla!!

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Roasted chicken is a simple and versatile protein. Use it in soups, throw it on pasta or pair it with a simple salad.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(134 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.

Garlic lovers, rejoice! This recipe contains a whopping two heads, but the flavor mellows and sweetens when baked.

My kids never complain about eating both beans and greens in one meal when they're served alongside rich, slow-cooked pork.
