Copied off the internet. Recipe is originally for one serving but I think it is better suited to 4 small side servings. Am making as a side to the wonderful Sesame Chicken recipe found here on SP.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

If you're looking for a meal with very low calories and lots of yummy veggies then this is definitely one to try!! You can eat tons and not feel guilty! It would be even better with some type of lean cuts of meat as well...chicken, beef or pork.

Wildly Addictive Peanut Butter Granola
Very Good 4.3/5
(34 ratings)

A store near my daughter's house in California has peanut butter granola in the bulk food section. But I couldn't find it anywhere near my house in Illinois, so I found this recipe online and made my own. Now I'm glad I couldn't find it at the store. It's cheaper and I can control the ingredients that are used.

BBQ Shrimp with Creamy Cheese Polenta
Very Good 4.1/5
(15 ratings)

I don't know a kid who doesn't love the combo of cheese and barbecue sauce. This dish is a swap on mac-n-cheese and BBQ chicken that's quick and grown-up approved.

Pumpkin Dip
Good 3.9/5

Try this dip on a toasted whole-wheat bagel at breakfast or with apple slices or whole-grain crackers for a snack. It's even good with carrots.

Skip the drive-through and serve these instead. Split one open, pop in an egg cooked your way and even some shredded cheese.
