Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Skinny Cheese Fondue
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture!

Very Good 4.3/5
(50 ratings)

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.

Italian Herb Seasoning
Very Good 4.4/5
(50 ratings)

Forget buying packets of seasonings. They're expensive and often full of salt. Save sodium and money by making this easy herb blend. Use it in sauces, soups, stews, on meats... anywhere you want to add Italian flavor without fat or sodium!

Super easy crock pot recipe...less than 5 minutes of prep time. This is a healthy recipe, other than the sodium. You can decrease that by using low-sodium taco seasoning.

WLS Crock Pot Spicy Beefy Beany Taco Soup
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Great for Weight Loss Surgery patients with a small serving size of one cup. Includes finely ground beef, protein rich beans, and spicy Rotel tomatoes and chiles. Most people will eat more than a cup! Serving size is just a guesstimate. Appears to be 16 cups.
