Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches
Very Good 4.8/5
(32 ratings)

Cheap and EASY to make for lunch or dinner! Serve with Fat-Free or low-fat Pringles, some cucumber slices or carrots and you have a complete meal! I used thin sliced roasted-garlic Artisian bread, but this recipe calls for doing one large sandwich on French bread loaf and then slicing into individual portions.

Hawaiian Pizza: 'SparkRecipes Un-Chained' Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.4/5

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the sweet sauce at Papa John's is my all-time favorite. My viewpoint is, if you're going to make it at home, don't make it "just as good," make it better! So I'm remaking a medium Papa John's pie with pineapple, onion and bacon(BACON!!!). Fresh homemade sauce and premium ingredients make this recipe more than worth the calories, and still trimmer than the fast food original!

I got this recipe from RecipeZaar.com. It was originally posted by little _wing. It is high in fiber and protein but low in fat. So much better for you than take-out but, I think, it tastes just as good.

This recipe came from the chicken enchilada recipe I submitted earlier. I didn't need to make that many chicken enchiladas, so I made this up to make a slightly different meal. I used the remaining sauce from the chicken enchilada recipe, then added the remaining chicken and added the chicken broth.

Modified Lighter Version of Whole Foods' Sonoma Chicken Salad
(no ratings)

The recipe posted on Whole Foods' website is over 600 calories per serving so I tweaked it a bit to make it lighter, plus I used canned chicken for convenience. I absolutely love the original and am so excited to get to make my own. I bet it is even better if you cook and cube your own chicken but I know I won't have time on a regular basis.
