2 minute breakfast sandwich

For a high protein breakfast on the run! Really only takes 2 minutes to prepare.

Lynette's fiesta soup

A super low fat, high fiber soup that's very filling! The first time I made it I put 2 cups of rice and it was VERY thick, so I reduced the rice to 1 cup instead. If you like your soup with very little liquid, use 2 cups rice; it adds 10 calories or so per cup.

VEGETARIAN OPTION: substitute vegetable broth for beef broth, and leave out the beef (it's only there to appease my husband anyway! lol)

Greek Salad Mix

This makes 4 cups of greek salad without lettuce... add it to lettuce to make a big yummy salad!

Marion's famous rice pilaf

An easy side dish to bring to a potluck or for a family dinner. Great with chicken!

Lynette's italian wedding soup

I modified this recipe from an online recipe that had way too much pasta... i cut the pasta back to 1/2 cup and added more chicken broth. I also used ground pork instead of ground chicken for more flavour.

Lynette's crustless quiche

This is a recipe I adapted to lower the fat and calories (and prep time) by leaving out the crust... my husband said it was great and would eat it again, he liked it so much he ate two portions! It also keeps well in the fridge for a few days and reheats well in the microwave, so makes a great quick, filling breakfast! Could easily substitute ham for any other ingredient (such as veggies) to lower fat and calories further.

creamy ham casserole

my husband found a recipe and wanted to try it... it was good but 400 calories and 24 g fat per serving.
By substituting with these lighter ingredients we save 120 calories and 14 g of fat per serving!

Lisa's Tuna Burgers

My friend Lisa loves these tuna burgers and so do I! The hardest part of preparing these burgers is crushing the crackers, so to save time you can buy cracker crumbs.
