Recipes I've Shared:

Lasagna Soup- vegetarian

Tastes just like lasagna- with only 100 calories a serving! Quick and easy. Cheese is optional and not included in the nutrition info but I found a very small amount of finely shredded cheese made it nice and cheesy! I used 1 tbsp at the table and stirred it in.

Fluffy blueberry oat pancakes

These fluffy pancakes are made like regular pancakes but a good portion of flour is subbed with oatmeal ground in a food processor or blender. Each 1/4 cup of batter is 75 cals and loaded with nutrients. Soy free, dairy free.

Cranberry Cream bars (dairy + soy free)

Smooth and tart like a key lime pie with the delicious flavour of cranberries. 100 calories a serving.

These are baked custard bars made with cream of coconut and agave instead of sweetened condensed milk. They are tart! I think to be more like a box key lime pie you would need to add 1/2 cup of sugar. You can taste your cranberry mixture before adding the egg yolks and adjust as needed.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

I reduced the calories in a favourite recipe by about half to 270 cals per serving! Its still the full flavour of the original recipe but a smaller portion instead of a monster size restaurant slice. I did change the crust recipe quite a bit to be lower in calories. You can further reduce the calories to 250 cals a slice by omitting the pecans.

1 serving also boasts 100% of RDI of Vitamin A.

You could also try using 1 package of full fat cream cheese and 1 package reduced fat cream cheese.

Slow cooker chicken tinga

Mildly spicy and full of flavour. Incredibly easy to prepare! The whole family loves it. It made enough for a family of four to eat for two dinners and there was still a bit left over to make tortilla soup. The adults had it on salad dressed with lime juice and salsa, the kids had it in tortillas.

Turkey and veggie marinara with spaghetti squash

Super filling and very tasty! Only 200 cals per serving thats for the meat, sauce, and "noodles." Spaghetti squash in place of spaghetti makes a great low cal and filling substitution. Loaded with veggies and herbs.

"Cheezy" Italian Turkey Meatloaf

Packed with flavour and not so many calories this delicous meat loaf recipes replaces traditional cheese with "nutritional yeast" which is load with nutrition and cheezy flavour without the high calories of cheese. If you do not want to use nutritional yeast, serve loaf with grated parm!

Even my picky five year old (who hates meatloaf) ate it up!

Kidney Bean and Corn soup

100 cals a serving! Chocolate (in mole sauce), combines exotically with kidney beans, corn, and tomato. A slightly sweet and spicy vegetarian soup. Control the heat with amount of pepper used.

Turn the soup into a meal with some cheese and rice.

Vegan Cheese Sauce Mix

Amazing! Tasty and incredibly nutritious. Prepare ahead and keep on hand for mac and cheese, grilled cheese, salsa con queso, pizza, broccoli and cheese sauce...

Cheesey Crackers Vegan

Very nutritious and tasty (vegan) crackers! Soy free too.

Vegan Oatmeal Waffles

Blended rolled oats turn into a low cal breakfast in a waffle iron!

Big and Fluffy Dairy Free Pancakes

Fluffy, dairy/soy free pancakes!

Dairy/Soy Free CornBread Muffins

A dairy and soy free cornbread. Slightly sweet, very moist, and highly addictive with only 140 cals per serving!
