Makes 6 1/4 cup servings that clock in under 10 cals. Good if you're on a diet or if you need maple syrup for a recipe but are out. Adapted from "Cooking Healthy, Fast & Superfast" by Rachel Rudel.

A filling chili with tons of vegetables you wouldn't normally find in chili. However, I dare you to try and taste them! With all of the spices in chili, it's a perfect dish for disguising vegetables but not their nutrients!

Healthified White Trash Taco Salad
Incredible! 5.0/5
(4 ratings)

Have you ever had that wonderful white trash taco salad made with Doritos, taco meat, tons of cheese and an entire bottle of Catalina/French dressing? Oh yeah, I believe there may be some lettuce in there also. I personally love the stuff but DONíT love the calorie count (I calculated it at over 1,000 calories per serving!!). I prefer to splurge on dessert and tend to choose healthier options for my meals.

Well, I donít see why I canít have my cake and eat it too, so I took that atrocity of a ďsaladĒ and turned it into something I could feel good about eating on what is now almost a weekly basis. It has become one of my favorite go-to meals b/c itís easy and so tasty. Plus, I like big portion sizes and the bulk of the lettuce allows you to get a big plateful for about half the fat and calories of the original recipe. Now thatís what Iím talkin' 'bout.

This is a spicey food lovers dream soup. this is great just in a bowl or over a serving of tortila chips. A tbsp of sour cream if you wish... Or for the very brave add hot sauce. For this recipe I used my Crockpot, if you do not have a crock pot thiat is fine just use a soup pan. ( Better in crockpot though.)

Tofu Foo Yung
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Alright, this is a recipe that I got from a Tofu cook book which my mother-in-law gave me. It is really good, I just got done making it! The only thing I did different from the recipe is leave the patties in the oven longer than what was called for. That and grind on some pepper with the gravy, yum!
