brilliant colors equal vibrant health - I make this using up what I have on hand - you can sub in and out pepper colors, spices and extra tomato sauce instead of salsa

Goat Cheese Alfredo Pasta
Good 3.2/5

Even a lunch portion of fettuccine Alfredo has 800 calories and 48 grams of fat. Mine has less than 1/2 the calories, 1/5 the fat, and plenty of veggies, too.

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

Using "Missions Low-Carb or La Tortilla Factory" Corn or White tortillas & Carb Hood Dairy-makes it low-carb without lossing flavor. Also, freezes & re-heats well.

Bariatric Galabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls) tlh
Very Good 4.8/5
(9 ratings)

I like these because they are a complete meal-in-one. Meat, vegetable and a little starch all wrapped up in each bundle.

This recipe makes up quicker than most when using a pressure cooker but it can be baked in the oven or in a Dutch oven on top of the stove.

There is some brown rice in it but the percentage of carbs is low and the protein is high. Ground turkey could be substituted for one or both of the meats but the nutrition information would need to be changed.

There are many different kinds of stuffed cabbage recipes originating from many countries. This is more like the Polish-type (pronounced go-wum-ki) and is simpler than others. If your lifestyle is like mine, simple is better!

I increased the onion and used fresh mushrooms vs. canned to lower salt and add fresh ingredients. Also replaced full fat soup with reduced fat soup and replaced reduced fat sour cream with fat free Greek yogurt. I added the Worcestershire sauce to give back the zing lost by taking out sour cream.
