Joetta's Best Popped Corn, EVER!!!

Break out the movies! 2 cups of herby, cheesy popcorn for 133 calories, 5.4 grams of MUFAs (the cholesterol fighter), and NO BAD CHOLESTEROL!!! You just try to get that from two cups of chips!

Joetta's Sesame Chicken and Veggies

Sautee' chicken in sesame oil, soy sauce and seeds.

When chicken is almost fully cooked, add veggies and sautee' just until almost done. (Best when veggies are sort of "al dente")

salt and pepper to taste

Optional: Can be thickened with corn starch, which adds a minimal amount of calories.

Joetta's dried fruit and walnut oatmeal cookies

I used dried cranberries here, but they can be substituted without much change in calories.
My family did like the cookies made with chopped dried apricots and chopped toasted almonds.

Angel Berry Cake (140 cal. and NO FAT!)

This is a modified version of my mother's recipe for Summertime Berry Angel Food Cake. Using a sugar-free angel food cake and other adjustments helps to really cut the calories.

The flavor is the essence of summer in a light, airy cake served cold. Perfect for those hot days and so fast for entertaining.

Angel Lush Cake (121 cal, 1 g Fat!)

I modified this Kraft foods recipe for Angel Lush Cake just a bit for fewer calories/fat per serving.

This cake is PERFECT for summer. Light and not TOO sweet, and served cold so it really beats the heat.

Joetta's "Atta Mommy" Salad

Check out the stats on this one!!! This is probably one of my favorite things to eat, ever, but especially in the summer! It's very cold, very fast, VERY HEALTHY, and just so very yummy. A colorful side dish to bring to a barbecue!

BTW. The American Heart Association says:
Omega-6 (n-6 polyunsaturated) fatty acids are the other group of essential fats that your body needs to function properly but does not make. Hence, they need to be consumed in the diet. Food sources of omega-6 fatty acids include some vegetable oils (SOYBEAN, safflower, sunflower or corn oils), nuts and seeds. Increased consumption of omega-6 fatty acids in place of saturated fats and trans fats is associated with a decreased risk of coronary heart disease.

Guess what! This includes just about all of the fat in this recipe!
