Recipes I've Shared:

Vegan Chocolate Ice Dream

My favorite sugarless non-dairy dessert. Super easy

Vegan Chocolate Ice Dream

Brocamole

This is a guacamole that has about half the calories of regular because you use half broccoli and half avocado. It fools almost anyone! You really can't taste the difference. The key is the food processor

Beseven's Cheesy Veggie Lasagna

This is ovo-lacto vegetarian, very filling, and super delicious. The key is to limit yourself to the serving size and eat slowly. If you do, one portion will fill you up!

Beseven's Tuna Noodle Casserole 1

Just what I had in the house.

Lorraine's Turkey Loaf

Had this for dinner tonight. Mom's recipe. Neither my husband nor I could figure out why it came out so moist without any oil added. So flavorful!

Bubbe's Amazing Salmon Patties

These are a big hit, especially with mustard!

Yogurt Dip or Potato Topper

Incredibly easy, incredibly healthy, and incredibly delicious! Low in fat and calories--high in protein and potassium. Fabulous on a baked potato instead of butter or sour cream, or great as a dip with any raw veggies.

Apple Pieless

A delicious,nutritious dessert that never seems to stick around after I make it--always gets devoured. We like it tart, but if you want it sweeter, add more stevia or the sweetener of your choice. Maple syrup is amazing in it, but I try to cut the calories as much as possible. I've also made this with raisins and pecans instead of almonds. You can make it almost totally fat-free by leaving out the nuts. Still good! This was totally my invention!

Sweet & Savory Mushroom Onion Kugel

I totally made this up! It's loosely based on a traditional, Jewish noodle kugel, but I wanted something that was also savory and had a lot of mushrooms and onions that I wanted to use. My husband said he never tasted anything like it before, but he really liked it, as did I. You could dramatically lower the calories by using fat free ricotta and fat free cream cheese, and you could spray the pan instead of the oil. I think that would probably cut your cals in half, but I had to calculate it for the way I made it.

Tarragon Taters

A delicious blend of sweet and white potatoes, created by my parents.

Kohlrabi slaw

Great alternative to cole slaw, sweeter flavor with a crisper texture, super easy if you have a food processor with a shredder or grater blade.

Cheesy& Savory Sweet Tater

This is a quick, super-healthful, low-fat, delicious meal for one. I came up with this idea because I had next to nothing to make myself for dinner today, and I was in a hurry. I don't particularly care for cottage cheese or sweet potatoes, but somehow I came up with this idea anyway, and it was like ambrosia to me. Something about the seasoning just made everything taste yummy! If you're watching sodium, use garlic powder instead of garlic salt, and I'm sure it will be just as good. Remember, this is a whole meal, not a side dish! Believe me, I ate it 3 hours ago, and still feel satisfied!

Tabbykat's gingerbread cookies

This is a recipe that another member posted, but she did not include all ingredients in the calorie counter. I am re-posting the same recipe, including all ingredients, and changing the splenda brown sugar to regular brown sugar. I am leaving off the decorations (they weren't included in the original ingredients anyway, and I don't need them.) Truthfully, if you don't add the frosting, it's not that bad, calorie-wise, if you limit yourself to one cookie!

Cottage Cheese and Apples

This is the easiest thing in the world to make, and it's filling, healthful, nutritious, and low-calorie. What more could you want? Also due to the healthful benefits of cinnamon, my cholesterol and blood sugar both normalized after only a month of eating this for breakfast most days. It may look weird or sound gross, but trust me, if you like apple pie type desserts, the odds are good that you'll like this.

Kohlrabi pickles

This is a slight tweaking of a recipe I found on restaurantwidow.com. I tried to minimize the salt to keep the sodium levels in check. It came out delicious! My 5-yr-old couldn't stop eating them, when I made it for the first time yesterday, and she is already begging me to make it again. They are the perfect snack because they are full of nutrients with hardly any calories; they taste delicious, and have a very satisfying crunch. If you've never tried kohlrabi, you don't know what you're missing!

Rich and tangy mushroom soup

I found baby portobellas on sale at the market, 6 oz. for $1, so I bought 4 packages or 24 ounces of them (that's the 680 grams). Then I had to figure out what to do with them. I wanted to use them all up quickly, so I figured soup was the easiest way. It was so good and filling I had two bowls full and didn't want anything else for dinner! It is super low calorie with no added sweeteners or salt, and very little fat, but doesn't taste like it! Incredibly filling!

B7's Easy Cucumber Salad

Really easy, this has no sweetener in it at all, but it is super flavorful. And a big bowl of it keeps for several days covered in the fridge. If you're like us, it won't last that long. Great to do if you have lots of cukes in the garden like we've had lately.

Cold Sesame/Peanut noodles

The trick with this is limiting your portions! It's just too yummy! It's the quickest, easiest dish in the world, and it's so gooood!
