Kentucky Hot Brown
Very Good 4.1/5
(26 ratings)

A hot brown is a Southern classic: An open-faced turkey sandwich is topped with a cheesy sauce, bacon and tomatoes. This one's a lot lighter, but you'd never know from the taste.

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.

break up the Kale into bite size chunks. Place in a cookie sheet with olive oil drizzled over the top. Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over it and bake at 350 for 15 min or so. Even my 2 year old loves it.

Un-Chained Recipe Contest: Banana Berry Smoothie
Very Good 4.5/5
(21 ratings)

I used to love grabbing smoothies, until I stumbled across the nutrition facts! I was really in shock when I looked up the nutritional information for my favorite smoothie, the jamba juice banana berry smoothie. The smoothie can contain up to 560 calories, and GET THIS, 115g of sugar. You think you are doing something good for your body, instead you are overloading it with tons of added sugar and other hidden culprits like frozen yogurt and sherbet! While the froyo and sherbet they add are fat free, they are desserts in themselves, and not something I want in mid day pick me up.

I came up with a smoothie that is just as creamy, thick and sweet as jambas smoothies, without all the added calories, sugar, and frozen desserts.

Who says you have to serve fajitas in a flour tortilla? Instead of serving peppers in the fajitas, I serve fajitas in a roasted pepper!

Very Good 4.3/5
(16 ratings)

During the week, my morning time is very limited and I used to skip breakfast. After refocusing to ensure I ate something filling, healthy and quick EVERY morning, I started to make these. Usually, I make two at a time, one for my wife as well and we will drink it before heading out to our work outs.
