Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

You can also do this in the slow cooker.
Serve over rice (not included in calculations)
The sparkpeople calcualte it at around 367 calories, but I did it myself and it only equaled 215 calories and 4 WW ponts. If you serve with 1 cup of rice that's only 8 points for the entire meal!

I don't like fish much, but I love this baked tilapia recipe! I think the sauce can be used with other fish/seafood.

Barley Lentil Mushroom Soup
Very Good 4.5/5
(8 ratings)

There is nothing more satisfying than a warm hearty and delicious soup when it's cold outside. This soup is versatile (add whatever veggies you have lying around), easy and nutritious. Adding both barley and lentils makes this more nutritionally complete for the veggies out there, but feel free to just use one or the other if you'd prefer. And the servings are large! If you're having this on the side, you'll get a lot more servings than mentioned! (also it freezes really well too! so make a batch and freeze in single-serve tupperware for easy lunches/dinners!)

15 Minute Rosemary Lamb Chops
Very Good 4.5/5
(25 ratings)

Tender lamb might seem time-intensive, but it's actually quite simple to prepare. This 15-minute recipe makes for a no-fuss spring meal that tastes like it took all day to make!

Easy Lebanese Grape Leaves w/ Lamb or Lean Beef
Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

A quick and less painless way to roll your own grape leaves for a light plentiful snack or appetizer! Rolling may take a while, but it's fun and worthwhile. This grape leaf recipe includes meat.

I saw this recipe made on The Biggest Losers. I didn't have any ground turkey on hand, so I used lean ground beef. This is double the origianl recipe. Makes great leftovers for lunch.
