Skinny Chicken Philly Cheese Sub
Very Good 4.1/5
(74 ratings)

Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.

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!

Un-Chained Recipe Contest Rueben Sandwich
Good 3.9/5
(14 ratings)

Arby's Market Fresh Rueben Sandwich, one of my favorites to re-create saving you a whopping 340 calories, 18 grams fat and 29 grams of carbohydrates. If you can find a leaner cut of corned beef, it will make this re-creation even healthier!

Slow Cooker Pulled Barbeque Beef
Very Good 4.8/5
(13 ratings)

This is a great recipe that can be experimented with. I thought it was good as is. You can Try adding thyme, marjoram, a bayleafor two, ect. Or, for the best and easiest, substitue a good, proven barbecue rub for beef, like Heiffer Dust, which won "Best Rub" at the American Royal a year or two back and is available commercially.

This is a healthier version of chicken salad that my mom sometimes makes. The little bit of ranch gives it a nice flavor not found in a traditional chicken salad.

Mrs. K's Black Bean Burgers (Un-Chained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.0/5
(10 ratings)

I have always liked vegetarian "burgers" as an alternative to their high fat, high sodium meat counterparts. When my co-workers and I decided to go to Chili's for lunch, I assumed that the "Guiltess Black Bean Burger" would be just that...or at least a healthy alternative. It sounded delicious, but when I looked up the nutritional content before we left the office, I was shocked to see that one burger contained 1790 mg of sodium...More than I would like to consume for an entire day!! Since I'm watching sodium content, this was clearly not a good choice and I ordered something else. I figured I could make a much more heart healthy recipe and add some avocado, one of my favorites! Here it is:

I got this from the Fix It and Forget It Lightly cookbook. It calls for any diet soda. I actually used Diet Dr. Pepper. I used Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce. Finally, I'm not an onion person, so I skipped them--and used minced onion instead. It was ABSOLUTELY delicious! The only hard part is eating JUST ONE SERVING!
