A warm protein drink? A coffee drink? A mocha? Lots of things for little calories and carbs!

Sweet Potato Souffle II

Trying to make a lighter sweet potato souffle. This is not a light recipe, but it's a little better than the first one I tried! This was more like sweet potato pie filling. Good, but it probably isn't very presentable as a souffle. i might totally fill a low carb pie crust with it one day tho.

Sweet Potato Souffle

This is not a low calorie nor a low carb recipe, but it will be a bit better than the typical sweet potato souffle.

Cheesy and spicy and everything nice-y, using reduced fat cheese.


Very Good (3 ratings)
PrairieHarpy's Divine Dijon Bake

This bake was inspired by a casserole I found at http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot
.com/ - Great stuff there. I lightened this up a little, made it easier on myself to digest (dark meat vs. light) and adjusted the veggies to better suit DH's taste (whose nose still scrunched up at the peas. lol)

PrairieHarpy's Tasty Tilapia

Tilapia filets topped with a parmesan cheese based mix then baked or broiled.

PrairieHarpy's Easy Ham and Navy Bean Soup

This is SO easy and so tasty. It has a touch more sweetness than I usually find in bean soup. I think it was the use of honey ham, baby carrots, and a dash of liquid smoke that made it exceptional to me.

A wonderful alternative to ice cream or a boring old protein drink.

PrairieHarpy's Very Curry Egg Salad

I love curry, and I love egg salad. I mashed em together. Voila. This is VERY heavy on curry. If you like less seasoning, you might wish to cut all the spice amounts in half. Or, you can vary them to your liking. This is a tough one to mess up!

Banana Cream Bread

An attempt at a healthier version of banana bread. Unfortunately, it is still calorie loaded.

PrairieHarpy's Ziti-less Chicken Ziti Bake

If DH wants pasta and you don't, this enables you to please him without having to pick the pasta out of yours. Still a little high in calories. Had some trouble finding the exact chicken and sauce brands I used. Look for an update.
