This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(64 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Herbed Bulgur and Lentil Salad
Very Good 4.2/5
(195 ratings)

This recipe is part of "The SparkPeople Cookbook." Order your copy today! This salad is even better the longer it sits in the fridge, so we love to make a big batch of it and eat it throughout the week.

Roasted chicken is a simple and versatile protein. Use it in soups, throw it on pasta or pair it with a simple salad. Tip: Save time and energy by roasting two chickens at once and freezing one (carve it first).
NOTE: Save about 125 calories and 11 g fat per serving by removing the skin.

This is just a "Chili" dish we throw together on busy nights. It is not at all spicy - my boys really dislike spicy dishes - and very basic. We add shredded cheese and sour cream to top it off.

Low-fat buttermilk and applesauce help lower the fat, and the whole-wheat flour and flax seed add fiber. These healthful muffins freeze well!

I came across this recipe over 3 years ago, and since then it's the only marinade I've used for Flank Steak. We love it and so does everyone we have prepared it for!

Nancy's Ol' Fashioned, Easy, Simple Chicken Soup...Un-Chained Recipe Contest!
Very Good 4.1/5
(30 ratings)

This is (a) an improvement on Corner Bakery Cafe's Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup; (b) a large pot of vitamin-rich, naturally sweet, nutritious, chicken soup that (c) is very easy to make, (d) freezes well, (e) feeds about a dozen hungry people, and (f) I make throughout the year after having and making many different variations on a theme for many years

Although it can take a little time to get the chicken off the bones, it's SO worth it! Also, if you don't want to use a whole chicken or shredding it just isn't your thing, you can use chicken parts or whole breasts instead, cut off the big chunks, and dice or shred them. They'll take less cooking time, too.

There's nothing better for you, especially when ONLY chicken soup will do! It's not ambrosia (nectar of the gods), but it's as close as I can get! I appreciate your feedback and input. Enjoy! SparkPeople rocks my world! Nancy, a/k/a KEEPITMOVING
