This is an adaptation of Chef Meg's recipe. It makes 4 HUGE calzone/panzerotti's so I make them into 8 smaller ones which is still a really decent sized serving, serve with breadsticks and a salad.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(33 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Soba Noodles, Chicken, and Veggies with Caramelized Garlic Sauce
Very Good 4.9/5
(16 ratings)

Warning: must love garlic.

This dish serves 1, but can easily be modified to serve more.

Some Soba noodles are gluten-free (check package). They are made from buckwheat and metabolize much more slowly than most carbohydrates, which makes them ideal for diabetics and health-conscious individuals. You can pick them up at your local japanese market or health food store.

If you don't have any chicken leftovers on hand, Marinate chicken breast tenderloins or sliced breasts in some sesame oil, chopped up garlic, sake or rice vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper for 4-24 hours. Cook in nonstick skillet.. adding a bit of soy sauce and sake/wine halfway through the cooking.

This sauce can be used on any noodles with just about any vegetables you like. Enjoy :)

Omitting the crust from this pie cuts calories and fat without sacrificing flavour. I suggest using reduced fat, but not fat-free, mayo and cheese. Serve with a green salad.

Strawberry Cheesecake Shake
Very Good 4.5/5
(202 ratings)

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)

Goes great with any Italian meal (ex. Steak Pizzaiola). Mushrooms give salad a grilled flavoring that is heady and mouth-watering for under 62 cal. Credit for recipe goes to Slimfast.com.

Celebrate spinach season with this lean and green scramble. Salty feta and velvety eggs combine beautifully with wilted spinach for a filling breakfast that's high in protein.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(73 ratings)

This is an adaptation of my favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you have the calories to spare, make some tortilla chips in the oven to eat with the soup and top with a bit of sour cream, cheese, avocado and anything else you like! It is very flavorful on it's own, though. Be sure to use high-quality enchilada sauce, as some brands can be greasy. I like to add other veggies in sometimes, such as carrots and squash.

Canned salmon works great in this recipe also. I used shrimp stock instead of the chicken, but any light-colored broth should do.
