Shamrock Shake

More of a meal packed with protein and healthy fat. Perfect for breakfast in March. And if you are planning on springing for the calorie laden version at mcds, you may as well have this instead... only a bit lower in calories, but there's nothing empty about them.

Oven Fried Chicken Parmesan

A Classic Comfort Food. Serve over a small serving of Whole Wheat Pasta. I use cooking spray to get the crisp while "frying" it in the oven. It is still oil, so I did count the calories for about 20 seconds of spray. That is probably way more than needed, but I wanted to overestimate. It is still not much calorie wise because spraying the oil, gets it everywhere while still using less.

Whole Grain Cornbread

Corn is already a whole grain. Using whole grain flour instead of white isn't even noticeable in this delicious recipe.

Amanda's Brunswick Stew

A southern style stew

Amanda's Tomatillo Salsa

A very garlicy tomatillo based salsa

Crockpot Apple French Toast

This is a recipe inspired by one I found on pinterest. I wanted to try it using lower calorie bread, fewer whole eggs, and wanted to add the apples and cane sugar

Spicy Egg Salad with Corn

For those of you who love (or at one point loved) that unhealthy, mayonnaise filled, spicy Mexican style corn, try this healthier alternative. Eat cold or hot.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

A sweet glazed meatloaf

Spicy Beefy Gnocchi

This dish is something I threw together on a whim with things I had, just so I could take something with to work. Not including waiting for the water to boil, it took seriously about 5 minutes to throw together. It is also extremely low in fat, if low-fat is your focus. Unfortunately the processed food here adds a bit too much sodium. I would also prefer to find a truly whole wheat gnocchi, as the "whole" wheat gnocchi I bought actually has zero whole wheat in its ingredients. I justified it with the fact that it is more potato than flour anyway (and I am very pro potato).

Broccoli Cheese MUFA soup

This recipe is for a creamy broccoli cheese soup without all the heavy cream and saturated fat. It uses olive oil to incorporate healthy monounsaturated fat to the dish.

Stuffing Dressed Pork Chops

For this recipe I used thin sliced pork chops. Feel free to use your preference of cut. I liked the thin cut because in a pack there were 8 equaling a total of 1.46 lbs. Meaning, each was actually less than 3oz. I was satisfied with eating one, along with my veggies and rice. I figure, the bigger they are, the more you want to eat. Also, they cook a lot faster! This recipe is very easy and quick!
