Parmesan Roasted Squash

The only way I've ever had squash is steamed, or boiled. Neither is much more than edible, am I right? BUT - I tried this recipe with some squash from my mother-in-law's garden, and it's delicious! It's really easy to make to.

You could use fat free half & half for even fewer calories.

Spinach Feta Parmesan Chicken Casserole for 1 or 2

Delicious and easy to make. Perfect for one or 2!

Sweet Baby Carrots


By: Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"Here's a flavorful way to dress up carrots without a lot of fuss. Simply steam the good-for-you veggies, then season with butter, brown sugar, vinegar and a sprinkling of chives. The carrots are not only colorful, but they taste good, too."

High Protein Chocolate "Ice Cream"

High protein, low fat, low carb! You can't really call this "ice cream" since there is no cream. It has more of a soft serve texture. For added flavor, consider adding chips of your favorite protein/energy bar.

Good for you Brownies

Now there is absolutely no reason to feel bad about dessert... and for me this is like heaven on earth because brownies are my number one all time favourite junk food.

Angie's Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Low in fat, high on taste! This is so easy and quick to make, too! Basically, use 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese per fillet that you will broil. Add just enough mayo to form a thick paste, then thin it with the lemon juice. Add seasonings to your liking. YUM!!

(Other recipes call for butter, but I find that if I use butter, it drains off of the fish and onto the pan. Leaving the butter out helps to keep the cheese topping on the fish!)

Southwestern Egg Beater Scramble

Low fat, low carb. This is a LOT of eggs and is very filling! This could easily serve 4 people with a side dish.

Use homemade salsa or reduced sodium salsa to drastically lower sodium content.

P90X Protein Shake (Banana-Strawberry) Level I

P90X recipe using Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein - Vanilla (available at Walmart). This makes quite a large shake, so you better have a big glass handy.

Mexican Bake

Lighter version!

Chocolate Bar Brownies

Recipe included with Williams Sonoma's Chocolate Bar brownie pan.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

These cookies are the pinnacle of perfection! If you want a big, fat, chewy cookie like the kind you see at the bakeries and specialty shops, then these are the cookies for you. Each cookie is generously sized.

French Dip Sandwiches

This is makes 6 HUGE sandwiches. I have a hard time eating half of one. This is a lower carb recipe, with close to 1:1 ratio of protein to carb.

Note that there is typically a LOT of dipping sauce left over, hence you could approximate much less of the sodium content listed in the recipe.
