Candlecakes Faves

As I'm starting my journey into weight loss through healthy living, I decided to start my own personal cookbook of recipes I compile along the way. Amusing, since I'm not considered much of a cook!

I love stuffed peppers, this recipe is my stand-by after years of trial & error trying to find one easy way to make it that would please the whole family. I used to put cheese on top, but now I mix it in as a binder.

Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna
Very Good 4.6/5
(18 ratings)

This recipe has been healthy-fied from an older version that I've had for years. I've thrown the old less healthy version out the door!! WooHoo!

The wheat germ absorbes moisture so the sauce won't run right out when cutting. It also provides fiber. If you do not have wheat germ handy just replace it with one large egg.

Also, use whatever veggies you have on hand! This recipe will also be great with eggplant, zucchini, carrots, etc.

Enjoy! *Also freezes great (think convenience!)

This is a wonderful baked tilapia recipe that is easy to make provided you keep a watchful eye on broiling time!

150-Calorie Chocolate Mousse
Good 3.4/5

When I want chocolate mousse, only the real deal will do. This version is low in fat, but it's still creamy and rich. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!

Personally I haven't tried this recipe but I've been looking for a good meatloaf recipe. I'm anxious to hear comments about it.
