Protein loaded, easy, and spicy!
A couple tweaks to the ingredients lightens up this wonderfully warm winter soup.
An easy, lovely, and wonderfully tasty hors d'oeuvre
A warm protein drink? A coffee drink? A mocha? Lots of things for little calories and carbs!
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.
This is not a low calorie nor a low carb recipe, but it will be a bit better than the typical sweet potato souffle.
Can't get easier nor tastier than this!
Another fine football Sunday alternative!
Inspired by a Wegmans recipe, I made a couple twists and turns. This is a pretty darn healthy comfort food! Sweet tasting, and so simple!
Yes, turkey from the crock CAN be good!
This is a neat alternative to poached florentine or a florentine omelet.
Not a health food by any means, but we can at least cut a little of the carbs, cals, and sugar.
An attempt to make a lighter version of Carrot Curd. Inspired by the recipe shown here: http://anatomyofadinnerparty.b
-curd-and-pumpkin-bread.html Not entirely sure I did it any justice!
Roasted or pan cooked, they're tasty!
Not calorie cheap, but much more wholesome than a typical recipe.
A great and easy alternative if you're tired of the same old dinners.
Having this simmer for several hours in the slow cooker makes the house feel cozy and smell divine!
Lower in carbs and higher in protein, these make a lovely light lunch or dinner.
Lovely dip for fruit, graham crackers, or coating fruit salad.
The stats for Spicy Blackberry Turkey Cutlets when regular ketchup is used.
Super chocolatey, dense, and filling. Not quite as Heavenly as a brownie, but a very suitable replacement in my opinion.
Cheesy and spicy and everything nice-y, using reduced fat cheese.
This bake was inspired by a casserole I found at http://theworldaccordingtoeggf
ace.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)
Tilapia filets topped with a parmesan cheese based mix then baked or broiled.
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.
If you want pumpkin and you want easy and you want to not entirely wreck your calorie intake on the day, this is it.
Hardboiled eggs marinated in soy sauce.
Healthier (but not necessarily HEALTHY) fudge alternative
Cross between a muffin and a cookie. Very dense. Very filling. Easy to make.
A little bit healthier than regular banana bread.
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!
An attempt at a healthier version of banana bread. Unfortunately, it is still calorie loaded.
Delicious, yet carby.
Just what it sounds like!
My invention of the Italian Almond cookie using Nature Sweet (maltitol.) NOT LOW CAL. These are very chewy and best to eat when completely cool.
Inspired by Joeknees cheeseburger soup recipe, this is what I imagine to be the lazy version. :)
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.
Yummy & healthy as side dish or dessert!
Very yummy, but nutritionally empty!
Inspired by RZ #268335. I lightened it up a bit and made it a bit easier to accomplish and a little more flavorful.
Wonderfully easy slow cooker recipe. Very tasty!
Fairly light, yummy, and very easy!
Lower in carbs and higher in protein, this is a super easy and very yummy dish!
Based on the Jalepeno Heaven dish, but different.
A quick and spicy, yet surprisingly light meal!
A decadent hit of protein loaded chocolate!
Filling & yummy.
Another protein fudge to play with!
Packing a protein wallop, this tasty smoothie also provides some VEGGIE goodness!
Protein + Veggies = Lovely Breakfast!
With plenty of protein and healthy fats, this carrot cake shake makes a perfect post-workout drink or meal replacement.
Healthier than regular fudge. Watch the fat.
Low in carbs and higher in protein, these have a great kick!
