I dislike many 'lowfat' / 'nonfat' products that are premade, and artificial sweetners - I think they are probably pretty unhealthy...so I am putting together recipes that avoid most of these. Also I'm an American in the UK so I'll be finding solutions to ingredient issues.

Cookbook creator says: I am including this because it seems like it'd be easy to halve the recipe, even though the separating the eggs, and whisking the whites seems like too much work...we'll see!Submitted by KTDAYS
Cookbook creator says: lower fat ricotta is not bad in this, but being in U.K. it is hard to find. I will experiement with using blended/mashed cottage cheese and see how it goes...to report later.Submitted by ISIS375
Cookbook creator says: Can't get applesauce in the U.K. markets...so this looks pretty easy to freeze batches of for cooking/snacks. Try without vanilla [expensive!] and many comments on this recipe said they leave it out.Submitted by LAROJABONITA
This soup is so simple, with the main ingredient being only carrots, and no potatoes or cream to thicken it. I'm sure there are many directions in which the flavors could travel, but I prefer to make it with a predominantly Indian taste. Feel free to adjust the spicy-level as necessary. I like it with a moderate to intense heat, but you can add more or less cayenne and crushed red pepper to suit your own taste. The final product should be smooth and evenly blended, so you will need some kind of food processing device to get it right. Submitted by EHD630
Cookbook creator says: Chef Meg says it lasts a week in the fridge, and a few months frozen - ice cubes good idea. In U.K. will need to order dried ancho chilis online, or get a family friend to send.Submitted by CHEF_MEG
This is an adaptation of my favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you have the calories to spare, make some tortilla chips in the oven to eat with the soup and top with a bit of sour cream, cheese, avocado and anything else you like! It is very flavorful on it's own, though. Be sure to use high-quality enchilada sauce, as some brands can be greasy. I like to add other veggies in sometimes, such as carrots and squash.

Cookbook creator says: Uses stock - suggestions include using turkey bacon instead of ham.
For UK...From a SP friend: Sainsburys carry a type of 'turkey bacon,' called 'Mattessons Unsmoked Turkey Rashers.' Asda has both the Matteson's Unsmoked AND Smoked styles.Submitted by DISNEYFIT
Cookbook creator says: In case I don't want to use stock - this takes only water. Will have to find spices (try bay, pepper..?) as unlikely to find spice brand named in recipe.Submitted by BUSYCHARLES
