PB2 & Oat Protein Bars

These are great little snacks that pack protein without the fat and sugar of most protein bars out there. Great for those days I don't have time to eat breakfast!

Quick Stewed (kind of) Chicken and Tomatoes

Came up with this one night when I really wanted spaghetti, but didn't want the calories or the beef. adding the rotisserie chicken bones does something awesome to it. i actually serve this with brown rice most of the time, and i like it even better than pasta!

This is an indulgent pasta that is still within the calorie limits for most diets, even if you serve yourself a little extra ; )

Quinoa Pilaf (main)

Hearty Beef n Chili Beans

Easy Slow Cooker Chili that is also really budget friendly. Add low fat sour cream, green onions, avocado, or low fat cheddar for toppings!

Italian Spaghetti Squash with Ricotta and Tomatoes

This is my favorite meal when I want pasta but can't have it. This feels so rich and hearty, but it is low in fat, calories, and carbs; but high in fiber, potassium and deliciousness! P.S.

These are soo good! The tofu, beef, mushrooms, and water chestnuts combine so many textures it makes eating these fun. It is easy to change up the flavors and calories by substituting the ground beef for other ground meats like chicken, pork, shrimp, or textured vegetable protein. Double the portions to serve as a main
