The Stuff is something I used to make for my kids before I went on my lifestyle change .
They have been bugging me to make it so I came up with this lower fat version . The old version has pork italian sausage and used 2 STICKS of butter . This one is light and doesn't make you feel weighed down !! ENJOY

On a chilly autumn day, I wanted some comfort food, and the first thing that came to mind was Chicken Pot Pie. However, since I have wheat and dairy allergies and want to maintain my weight, I knew that wasn't a healthy idea for me. So, I made this deliciously creamy, healthy, and tasty soup. Feel free to adjust it as you desire!

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(197 ratings)

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert!

This is cheesier than the original and has the right measurements for tortillas, beans, and enchilada sauce.

This recipe uses whole wheat penne and is way easier to put together than real lasagna and low fat ricotta cheese makes it yummy without all the calories and fat!

With just a few ingredients, this is simple to make. Yet its versatile enough to adapt. As made, its low sodium and low fat, and high in protein and vitamins. I bought all of the ingredients at Trader Joe's, but I am sure you can find them at the regular grocery store.

This apple crisp is sweet and simple to prepare, but uses very little added sugar. The pecans add a huge amount of flavor but can be omitted.
