Ham Sandwich, Pickles, Cheese, Jello
(no ratings)

The brands make all the difference! The Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh ham is only 45 calories and 1 gram of fat for 6 slices! You can add mustard if you like. The bread is 100 calories a slice with lots of fiber and protein to keep you full. I'd rather a large slice of bread like this one, but that's a personal preference as I'm a volume eater. The becel light margarine is the best I've found that tastes great. It's a total of 35 calories for a teaspoon on each slice of bread. This was the biggest change for me, as I used to use TONS of margarine or butter, but I realize that if I spread this margarine thinly, it still has flavour and moistness to the bread (I don't like Mustard).
Pickles are 4 calories for 2 slices, but they are high in sodium, but I like them. I suppose if you were super healthy you could have cucumber slices or a low calorie vegetable, but I'm not there yet. The Weight watches cheese strings are amazing!!! 50 calories of complete salty yumminess. The 95% fat free Cool Whip is only 8 calories a tablespoon, and it makes a big difference on the 10 calorie jello. Who knew an 18 calorie dessert could be yummy?! This is my 352 calorie lunch :)

Hot Dogs & Wedge Fries
(no ratings)

My favourite meal is Hot Dogs and French Fries, so I had to make a lower alternative. This has 600 Calories and 14 grams of fat. I like to have two potatoes, but by having only one potatoe, and using one tsp of oil you can eliminate some calories and it becomes a 450 calories and 9.5 grams of fat.
I was never a big fan of the 98% fat free hot dogs, until I hooked them up with the left over oil and seasonings from the wedge recipe :) Now they are crispy and flavourful!
Also, if you want to save calories, you can probably find some bun or bread for the hotdogs that is much lower (mine is 100 cals a slice)

These come out very moist. I found this on the back of a grocery store ad and made a few changes. The original called for 2 tsp of Thyme, 1/4 c of Parmesan, & 2 c of cornflakes. I measured after I dipped and found I had a good 1/2 c of mixture left so I cut the recipe back accordingly.

* For those of you that are salt restricted- You might want to leave out the salt as there's probably enough in the Parmesan cheese. I just sprinkled a little salt over the bowl.

I also extended the cooking time. The original time was 20 mins.

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Very Good 4.1/5
(37 ratings)

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!
