Barley-Stuffed Peppers with Apples, Pecans, and Stilton Cheese
(no ratings)

I made this recipe up one night to use up some leftover Stilton. It's a flavourful, low-fat, low-calorie main dish that goes great with a green salad and maybe some whole-wheat rolls.
Stilton is a very strong-flavoured cheese, so you can get away without adding very much to keep the fat content of these peppers low. You might prefer to use a different kind of cheese or use less if you don't like the flavour of Stilton.
Brown rice can be substituted for the barley if you prefer.
This recipe makes 12 servings, but is easy to halve. Or else you can make the full amount of stuffing and save some for another purpose -- it's wonderful cold on salads or warm in pitas.
TIP: the barley can be prepared early in the day and refrigerated until needed.

I got the idea for this recipe from the Hungry Girl 200 reciepes for under 200 cal cookbook, just substituting chicken for tilapia. It was soooo good and takes care of the BBQ and sweet cravings in one shot. My kids even loved it. Hey, it got a picky three year old to eat...

Tropical Grilled Chicken
Very Good 4.5/5

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.

This Asian-inspired pasta dish is so good and so quick to make and can be served hot or cold. Add some tofu for another healthy option.
