This is truly an invention of what I had on hand and what went well together in other recipes I've tried. Hope you like it!
From a Thai cookbook given to me. I actually lightened it up a little from what the cookbook states by using less oil, less meat and making this 6 servings instead of 4.
From Clean Eating Magazine Fall 2012 issue
While you can purchase broccoli slaw in the store, I made my own. It's easy and UBER cheap. Use your food processor to shred 4 stalks of broccoli and 2 medium sized carrots. Hey, if you're gonna' buy broccoli anyway, don't throw half of the purchase away!
Modified from a couple other recipes I've seen
Modified from another member's recipe that had too much wheat for my preference. I prefer more veggies.
I'm trying to eat more raw foods, vegetables specifically. And this is a tasty way to do it!
I got this recipe from Weight Watchers. It's high in protein thanks to the beans. But pair it with a piece of whole wheat bread to make a complete protein.
From Whole Living.com - but I halved the recipe to make 3 servings instead of 6 servings. The original recipe can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/4tpuf9s
I also didn't use "Golden Beets" and used regular red beets, and it turned out delish! Be careful, the beets are very colorful and will stain clothing. So wear clothes that you don't care about when you're handling beets. I also used clean, food prep rubber gloves when handling them so I didn't have pink hands afterward.

I modified the recipe slightly here to accommodate what I had on hand and to make it a bit more reasonable amount of chicken in one serving.
Slightly refined from another user's recipe to have a bit less sugar, a bit more coconut, and a lot more realistic # of servings
A revised version of another recipe on spark to include ground beef and to make 10 servings.

Found this recipe from another spark member, but lightened it up by reducing the olive oil and cheddar cheese.
Kind of followed a recipe from another user on Spark while changing some of the ingredients and adding others. It's in the oven now - we'll see how it turns out!
I recalculated a recipe I found on Spark to match the ingredients I had on hand.
From Weight Watchers book (Sensibly Tasty Deliciously Easy)
Recalculated from cookbook to not include any oil, replaced the oil with an extra banana. YUM!
I recalculated a recipe I found on Spark that was very high in fat.
I found a recipe on Spark that is delish - but I had to add extra sugar and corn calories to recalculate it to how I REALLY made the pancakes and to accurately track my breakfast. Enjoy!
Very sneaky way to throw in a veggie - but tastes like regular old hashbrowns
This is perfect for using up those huge, new-born-baby-sized zucchini that get away from you in the garden.
I just sort of made this up with things I had on hand and it turned out delicious. My girlfriend tried it and loved it, too. Great way to use those huge, ginormous zucchinis that get away from you in the garden.
Kinda' made this up as I went and it turned out really good!
A lot of this was created by another user, but I had a turnip on hand and wanted to reduce the amount of oil used. Turned out fantastic!
Used lighter and healthier ingredients for my version of another users bars.
Just thought I'd try mixing two Jello products and see what happened.
Got this recipe from Healthy Cooking Magazine and it's SO GOOD! The original recipe calls for red bell peppers, I didn't have any on hand so I used radishes instead. I also used 2 cups of black beans I had already prepared, the recipe calls for 1 15-oz can of black beans.
Taken directly from Healthy Cooking Magazine. Made this for a BBQ this weekend and it was SO YUMMY! One of my friends thought the watermelon was tomato, so it takes on a cucumber/tomato salad taste.
I used a recipe for yogurt, cucumber & mint salad dressing from another spark member (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det
ail.asp?recipe=1046707) and thought this would be a healthy veggie/pasta dressing. Delish!!!!
From Healthy Cooking Magazine. I made a couple modifications to fit what I had on hand and it tasted fabulous. Recipe here is calculated on what I used, not on what the recipe says to use. I made note of the differences in the text. My version has much less fat...
Got this recipe from Health Cooking magazine. I didn't make it EXACTLY as directed, but the info for the recipe is below. I made notes of the substitutions I used and the recipe info is based on how I made it. Recipe calls for 6 servings, I made it into 4 servings.
I got this recipe from Healthy Cooking magazine. I modified a couple things (noted in the ingredients list) and included only the ingredients I actually used in calculating this recipe. Also, I made this into four servings, the magazine makes it into six servings. I wanted the soup to stand alone as a full meal. VERY GOOD vegetarian soup...even us carnivores won't miss the meat here...
I revised the recipe for Italian Turkey Lasagna Rolls to include the right calorie count and nutritional value.
Super easy, so yummy
After fall harvest, I have a ton of apples and didn't know what to do with them all. I have a favorite Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe with Mango Salsa. I figured I'd add the fruit with my apples instead...
Could be a quick on-the-go breakfast or healthy snack. I will be experimenting with adding chocolate chips or raisins to the mix in addition to seasoning like cinnamon (not included in calorie count here). Also, customize with more or less protein powder as your diet requires.
I put this together with ingredients I had on hand on a day when it was too cold to go to the store. :) Tastes GREAT and warms you up!!
I copied this from another recipe on SparkPeople, but added more chicken since the recipe makes a lot of sauce. This is now 4 servings instead of 2.
I copied the ingredients from another user's recipe, but reduced it to be 3oz of pork per serving.
I recalculated this with from another user's recipe on SparkPeople.com.
I lightened up this recipe from another SparkPeople recipe, and it turned out FANTASTIC!!! Low calories, big flavor.
This could also easily be cooked on the stove top rather than in the crock pot.
I got this recipe from a friend who was on Weight Watchers. It's a very light cake and is deliciously moist and rich.
SO MUCH HEALTHIER than instant oatmeal flavors you buy in the store. I make several of these up on the weekend and grab one before heading for work in the morning.
You can add other veggies besides what I've included here. Other good choices include shredded carrots (they fade into the sauce!) or spinach. Also, any variety of pasta will work. So make this with whatever you have on hand.
Got this from Weight Watchers - VERY flavorful.
