I tried making this using breasts only as it is difficult to figure out portion sizes using a whole chicken. I only eat the breast when I make this anyway.
I like to make smoothies with almond milk rather than plain yogurt because the yogurt is sour and requires more sweetener. Also, if someone has issues with dairy, the almond milk may be a better choice.
I like this as a change from rice & vegetable.
I made this using fat free Philadelphia cheese to help with calories.
I needed something to add to other soups to make them more fiber rich, so I came up with this base.
We make this for Sunday brunch as my husband loves to cook it.
I made this with Almond milk because it has less calories and more calcium.
The original recipe called for Wind & Brown Rice, but if you can't get that, whole grain brown rice works, too. It also called for Shitake mushrooms which I did not have access to, so I substituted white mushrooms. It can also be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable stock for chicken stock.
This is really filling and a good source of protein. It can be eaten hot or cold.
I used easy to find ingredients as we live in a rural area and don't have large specialty groceries for some hard to find ingredients
I saw this online, but don't remember where. It is so easy to make I could memorize it without trouble.
I adapted this from Cinch recipe called Garlicky Barley Vegetable Chicken Soup as I could not get the exact ingredients at a local small town store.
I got this off the box of Ancient Harvest Quinoa. It is very good. Sometimes I change the seasoning to make a little different taste. For example, I like Cumin so I add that instead of oregano. I might also leave out the Almonds for a change.
My mom made chiffon cakes for special occasions. These were light like an angelfood cake, but had more calories since you use oil and egg yolks. I haven't seen these kinds of cakes listed and wanted to share this.
We like this combination in the spring when asparagus are fresh. Of course you could use any kinds of vegetable you like to grill.
To lower the fat and/or sugar content try to find low calorie brand of sweetened, condensed milk.
I also used fresh cooked pumpkin from the garden and drained as much water out as I could. If you use fresh cooked pumpkin you may need to add a tbl of flour or cornstarch to the mixture.
I found several soup recipes that used lentils and made up my own combination from the things I like in soup.
I tried to add more fiber to a Bran & Blueberry muffin recipe. I made 9 regular sized muffins. This amount of batter could have made 6 large muffins if you have the larger pans.
Mine came out pretty moist so baking times may need to be adjusted.
We find this really good and more filling than at the pizza place as we put a lot more vegetable on it.
The original recipe said for 3 pounds but I only used about 1/2 of this rub for 4 lbs of ribs. I do not know the original owner of this recipe.
This is very good, but you can get more than 6 one cup servings that the box says.
This is very simple to make.
At the end of the summer we often use fresh vegetables from our garden to make soup by the bulk for freezing and enjoy it all winter.
I tried to come up with a simple raisin bread and tried this.
The calories are high, I think. But I don't cut my slices too thick and get more slices than the box says, to cut back.
Sometimes a glass of wine just isn't what I want but these can be pretty heavy on the calories unless substitutes are used.
I got tired of eating the fruit and yogurt seperately, so I combined them for something different.
This is not low calorie. You can lower the calories by using fat free cheese and changing the beef to ground turkey. This brings the calories down to about 583.8, 29 g fat, 130 mg Cholesterol, 41.5g protein.
This is a hearty dish on a cold night. This will make 6 one cup servings.
Just by using any flavor of boxed cake mix and adding extra ingredients you can produce some tasty cookies. Of course this will change the calories depending on what is added. For this recipe no additional ingredients besides the base were added to give you some idea of what a basic cookie would be like.
These are great for Christmas or for those that like the flavor of Red Velvet cake, but not all the calories.
I figure one potato per person. When cooked down this might be about 1/2 cup per serving. All depends on how much you let it cook down.
This is a good side dish or dessert as well as a snack when you have to give in to your sweet tooth but watching sugar intake. It also helps get in fruit.
These are really good. You could substitute 1/2 the white flour with whole wheat to make it healthier.
This is an old fashioned recipe. Most people don't use Crisco any more, but this was for a special project that needed many doz. of cookies. It is surprising that one cookie is only 112 calories. (But the fat content is not healthy.)
This is good for using up all those garden vegetables that are low in calories but high in vitamins.
This can be eaten as a topping for ice cream or alone.
This will make about 24 1/2 cup servings (or 112 cal). If eaten as a jelly or jam would be eaten the calorie count would go down to about 96 1/8 cups which is close to 2 tbs. (or 28 cal)
This is how we do homemade sauce. We try not to use a full pound of ground chuck, so this varies each time.
This can be a light lunch if you only eat one or a dinner if you eat both.
If you like the texture of whole wheat, this is pretty good with your favorite jelly or jam.
This can be a snack or dessert.
I have changed this from the Quaker recipe to make it a little more healthy. If you choose to use Splenda, you could reduce calories and carbs further.
This can be eaten as a snack or a main dish for a light meal.
Great side dish for any meat or fish.
It is hard to find this Jet brand, but it is used by specialty shops. It is made by Kerry Food & Beverage and is said to be organic.
Cooling, vitamin drink
This can be used as a side dish with any meal.
great tasting side dish
Great homemade dish for any occassion
Low cal optional to restaurant style.
Small amount for 2 people to share.
Great with ice cream, simple unfrosted cake, and Cinnamon Tortilla chips
Good on crackers with salads or as a sandwich spread.
Good summer potato salad to take on picnics.
This a good way to use up cucumbers for a summer picnic.
This is similar to 3 Bean Salad, but gives more variety.
