5-Minute Berry Smoothie

Cookbook creator says: didn't have yogart so I substituted 1% cottage cheese instead. I also added a small amount of honey and vanilla. It was very good using blueberries and about half of the banana.

This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

This is a very moist meatloaf that has a very good flavor. It is very easy to make and cooks up in a little over an hour.

Have you ever looked at the nutritional info on the back of a frozen chicken pot pie? You should.

Makes four servings

Really good way to satisfy your hearty meal craving without being too hearty on the calories and fat.

If you are really creative you can make this when you have leftover veggies and chicken!
**Add what ever 98% Fat Free Soup you like such as Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Celery, etc.
The sodium content on this is not with the low sodium soup I used. I will update it when I get a new can.
