I morphed a recipe based on a Healthy Choice favorite.
This is a skinnier version of another recipe I found on the web.
Great side-dish! Prep time is low, but you need to consider that this salad is marinated in the dressing overnight. Plan ahead for this one, but worth it!
Although this is not low-fat. It is lower in fat and calories than the original recipe we found on the internet. I have been working with this recipe for awhile, and think I have finally gotten it down.
This is not a traditional recipe.It is great on oatmeal or by itself.
This mix can be used alone or sprinkled over oatmeal, salad, yogurt...
Quick lunch and an old stand-by.
I took another recipe and changed it up by using lower fat ingredients and portion sizes
I took another recipe that I found online and changed it up a little with ingredients I had on hand.
Yum! Moderation is the key.
This is a family favorite. Serve smaller portions to lower calorie range. Dressing could also be changed to lower calorie level.
This recipe can also be made with chicken breast meat.
A lower fat and calorie version of a family favorite.
You can further reduce the cholesterol and/or fat content by using 2 egg whites, instead of the whole egg, and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cooking time can be reduced by boiling the chicken ahead of time.
This is a modification from a Rachel Ray recipe. I reduced the amount of fat and increased the number of portions. This about 1/2 the original recipe and still makes 10 good-sized portions.
This can be trimmed down further by using egg substitute, but didn't have any on hand.
I took a friend's recipe and lowered the fat content dramatically by reducing the oil from 1 cup to 1/3 cup.
You can use any type of Italian dressing for this recipe. I prefer the Roasted Red Pepper or Tomato types.
I typically have ground turkey on hand, so I used this instead of the traditional meats.
Using a Foreman grill, really gets the crunch going on these tasty quesadillas.
This is a double recipe because my kids can't get enough of this, and I cook in batches. You can easily divide this recipe for a smaller family.
Everything in moderation!

An adaptation of a recipe I found on the back of the cheese package.
I came up with this recipe, which I modeled after our local Chinese restaurant's offering, since this is my son's favorite meal there.
My sister-in-law shared this recipe years ago. You may choose to omit the Italian sausage and use all ground beef. Spinach is also optional.
This can be divided into smaller sizes, baked, and frozen for later use.

My sister-in-law came up with this recipe. I added a few other touches that our family enjoys. Other greens may be substituted as they are available: iceberg, red leaf, green leaf, butter lettuces, etc.
Spaghetti squash is a great alternative to pasta (which I love) when I want to lighten up a meal.
Inspired by the recipe submitted by another member, I lowered the fat content by using applesauce, instead.
