Quick and Healthy (and Yummy) Root Veggie Soup

I did this by just throwing stuff into a small pot, with the idea of bringing it to work for lunch the next day. It turned out great!
Important Note: When purchasing diced tomatoes and beans, make sure to check the labels for sodium and pick a low one, also rinse the beans before adding to the soup.
Also, the quality of your curry powder will make a difference to sodium. There shouldn't be any added salt.
All ingridients can be altered to taste. I used Madras curry powder, and added about .5 inch piece of jalapeno for a bit of zing.
I also used ground cumin, instead of seeds, because that's what I had. You could probably toast the seeds if you wanted, to change the flavour a bit.
Eat half a serving, and add a small salad to up your veggies too!
Change the beans and change the flavour too!

Amanda's Practically Sinful Potato Chips and Dip

These home-made potato chips will give you the satisfaction of sinful chips and dip, without the nasty side effects! Enjoy!

Cinnamon Rice Pudding

This recipe is just a little bit sweet, as opposed to the super-sweet versions we all grew up with.

If you must make it a bit sweeter, drizzle a bit of honey or maple syrup on top.

Cottage Fruit Salad

In this recipe, make sure that the cranberries are dried, and in their original form, without added sugar or oils. The raisins should also be without added sugar or oils.

Rockin' Moroccan Stew (From Eat, Shrink, and Be Merry)

Quick and easy. Make sure you use real peanut butter (ground peanuts, that's it), and limit the salt in the broth and chickpeas.
