Very Good 4.6/5
(24 ratings)

This is an easy to prepare basic spaghetti sauce. It is easy to add veggies or meats as you desire. And it's much healthier than the store-bought jars! Be sure to look for cans of whole tomatoes and tomato paste with no added salt.

(Comparison - Most store-bought sauces have 80+ calories and 400+ mg sodium in a 1/2 cup serving. This sauce has 75 calories and 300 mg of sodium in 1 cup serving!)

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Italian Herb Seasoning
Very Good 4.4/5
(50 ratings)

Forget buying packets of seasonings. They're expensive and often full of salt. Save sodium and money by making this easy herb blend. Use it in sauces, soups, stews, on meats... anywhere you want to add Italian flavor without fat or sodium!

Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.
