Tangy Tuna Salad Sandwich
Good 3.0/5
(29 ratings)

I love a good sandwich, one that's so big you have to smash to fit into your mouth. This one is big on flavor, light on fat!

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Easy Ginger-Garlic Sauce
Very Good 4.3/5
(79 ratings)

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Not overly sweet like store-bought muffins or those from a prepared box mix. Moist, chewy, nutritious and versatile! Sometimes it will be part of my breakfast, but usually a filling snack. I freeze them in individual baggies to keep moist, then gently warm for 7 seconds after thawed.

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche
Very Good 4.5/5
(1024 ratings)

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

Only 3 ingredients, healthy, inexpensive, and 64 calories.
If you use the microwave (rather than oven) to melt the chips, follow directions on package.

US Marines love these,they are great as below for shipping overseas. You can also add raisins,nuts,or other dried fruit to these but best not to during summer months as it shortens shelf life.Toffee chips are good,can also use chocolate or other flavored chips.

Chicken Lo Mein
Very Good 4.3/5
(26 ratings)

Chicken Lo Mein makes a great lunch, dinner or late night snack. If you want a thicker sauce, whisk 2 teaspoons cornstarch into the sauce before adding into the wok.

break up the Kale into bite size chunks. Place in a cookie sheet with olive oil drizzled over the top. Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over it and bake at 350 for 15 min or so. Even my 2 year old loves it.

Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits
Very Good 4.3/5

This Southern staple gets a dose of fiber--with half of the fat of the original. Make a double batch over the weekend and freeze for the busy weekday mornings.
