Sweet Potato muffins!
Sweet Potato muffins!

Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set". Submitted by: LIFEHASCHANGES

Caribbean Pulled Chicken Stew
Caribbean Pulled Chicken Stew

This is a thick hearty BOLD tasting stew. The ginger gives it a kick and the coconut milk adds a delicious texture and rich flavor. I was apprehensive at first as I wasn't too sure how this stew would turn out but it ended up being AMAZING, everybody loved it and had multiple servings, the pot was empty in no time !!! I promise this stew will not disappoint!

(use homemade chicken broth and you can cut the sodium in half in this recipe)

(for extra protein add a can of chick peas, but rinse well to keep the sodium low)Submitted by: JANNERS1980

Baked BBQ'd Beef Back Ribs
Baked BBQ'd Beef Back Ribs

These are one of our favorites when we get the hankering for some good home barbecued food. We used to use Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce but have found a new, much easier on the diet grilling sauce put out by Sweet Baby Ray.

The ribs themselves yield about 1/3 to 1/4 of their weight as edible meat. So of the 2 packs of ribs where the combined weight is 260 oz. we figure the overall yield is roughly 65 oz. The rest is bone, fat and cartiledge.

These ribs are absolutely one of our favorite meals.

They're served best with a baked potato (make mine a yam), a tossed salad, a side of vegetable (I like steamed asparagus).

Prep is minimal when you already have your grilling sauce on hand.Submitted by: FYRCOP
