This healthy version of green rice becomes very creamy in the crock pot. No one can guess you've used brown rice.
Use this to eat a lot of fruit with a little chocolate
Great for a quick snack or appetizer party
Serve with thinly sliced french bread, pita chips, or Pretzel Crisps
Great appetizer. Serve with salsa. Each piece is 30 calories.
Can use any combo fruits or juices. Frozen fruits are better for the consistency of the smoothie
These can be made in batches and frozen. I use Santa Fe Tortilla Company whole grain tortillas from Sams which have 100 calories ea.
delicious with or without the fruit
Slow Cooker Recipe
Good but needs some more sugar or artificial sweetener
Great to spread on Sandwiches
I only had a full sugar pudding and a sugar free so this is the result of that combo when made into a pie with 2 boxes of pudding mix in it (and no cool whip).
I think you could reduce the sugar on this recipe to 1 C and still get good results.
Each fajita has 144 calories with no cheese or 162 calories with 1/2 cheese. The recipe says 8 Azteca tortillas but there are 2 tortillas in a serving on these so the nutritional information is calculated with 16.
great for sprinkling on yogurt (servings are small) or if you want as a cereal, 1/2 C equals 264 calories
from Joe S.
made with fat-free yogurt instead of cream. Who could tell the difference?
recipe book p. 120; serve in bowls, each person gets 1 chicken breast and 1/8 of other stuff. These are large servings so put in 3/4 of a serving if you eat less.
2 oz. of Fajita mix without tortillas is 85 calories.
Flavorful and Filling
uses the Bear Creek dried Tortilla soup recipe.
This has 268 calories for 8 almost 2 C servings with 4 oz chicken each or 214 for 10 almost 1 1/2 C servings
This recipe is great and in it's original form is delicious.
applesauce lightens and sweetens
serving is 1/8 cassserole. Maybe is about 1-1/4 C
great stir fry
Can leave out cranberries or put in other fruit. Incredible muffin!
I think this makes about 8 1 1/2 C servings. Each one is 184 calories. You can add salt to taste. Calories would be less if 93% lean ground beef was used.
This makes 4 6 oz servings so the calories are a bit higher.
2 C equal 1 serving I make this from leftover pot roast ingredients
This fills a 7 quart crockpot full. You can easily halve it for a smaller group. Servings are about a cup and a half if tomato juice is added. See tip.
make with Santa Fe Tortilla Whole Grain from Sams to make each large enchildada 329 calories with 8 grams of fiber.
from Guilt Free Recipes p. 43
versatile and low calorie
best ever low calorie bran muffins
These are really good!!! These are really easy once you've got some cooked chicken.
Sweet and Crunchy with a yogurt dressing
Pie with a twist, a creamy white layer, Makes 6 generous servings per pie. My family adores this recipe. If you don't want 2 pies, cut everything in half, or freeze the second.
I made the baked version of these great vegies with steak on Christmas day. They are wonderful and versatile. Can be grilled or baked and use any combo of vegies desired. If made without potatos and with 6 C total of carrots, cauliflower and broccoli florets and red pepper, the calorie count is only 90 per serving.
Hearty yummy bread machine recipe. (Can be made by hand too)
Like potato soup, but with the addition of fresh carrots and green beans.
Great bread machine recipe for dough
Grilled steak main dish summer salad
Easy to mix and take. Everyone loves it.
Low Cal and Filling. A traditional ham and bean soup with a twist.
Flavorful and Filling Winter Soup made in crock pot
p. 184 recipe
