This is a modified version of a recipe on that I enjoy greatly and that gives you a lot of protein, a lot of taste, and very few calories. You could make it much faster and easier with pre-prepared chicken breast, first sauteed with the onions and garlic in olive oil. You would increase the amount of broth by 1/2 cup or so and wouldn't use water in that scenario.

This is a great soup for the cold seasons, or those times when you have a cold. The spices and broth help keep the immune system active, and it is also good to soothe a sore throat or cough.

Skinny Italian Spinach Meatballs
(no ratings)

Adding spinach to your meatballs adds volume and fiber, so you can eat the same amount of meatballs with fewer calories, and it's a great way to sneak veggies into your picky kid's meal. I got 30 small meatballs out of this but only 25 made it into the sauce (my husband and I kept eating them). They are moist and flavorful with or without the sauce. Serve the leftovers for lunch on crusty whole wheat Italian bread for a meatball hero.

For a traditional spaghetti and meatball dinner, serve this over 1 cup of your favorite low point pasta. I had this over 1 cup Ronzoni Smart Taste spaghetti which gave me a total of 7 points.

Jeff's Ultimate Turkey Burger Recipe
Very Good 4.5/5
(74 ratings)

Moist, delicious, and flavorful turkey burger! The addition of the mayonaise adds a little needed fat to keep it moist, and you can't taste it at all. Great to freeze and have on hand for a quick meal!

This gives the taste combination of kettle corn - buttery, sweet and salty, without the added fat, sugar or salt.
