Cream of Cauliflower Soup

Small bowl of Creamy Soup to tempt the palate.

Tuna And Pasta Salad

In the recipe I used an oil and Vinegar dressing, this gives a higher calorie and fat content, 300 calories and 32 grams of fat in the total recipe. If you use light dressing total calories goes to 70 and fat drops to 3 grams. Add or subrtact if you so choose. Use your favorite salad pasta noodle. Heck add onions too if you like, they don't add too many calories (50 for a medium one).

Basic Chili, Spicy as you like...

I post this as something I make for the kids, they are older. So they do not mind spicy food. I use a bit of ketchup instead of tomato sauce to give it a tomato taste, this helps to cut back on the calories and sodium.

Crab Cakes Creole Style pg 1 of 2

This is a long list of ingredients so I made it in 2 pages.. Page 2 is Creole seasoning. This is a bit, (no a lot) of work but they are fantastic! Serve with your favorite seafood sauce, try them without first! The seasoning adds 4 calories per serving.

Crab Cakes Creole Style pg 2 of 2 Creole Seasoning

This is the seasoning for the crab cakes... so add the calories 19.2 per tbsp to the recipe and divide by 24. That is for the serious counters :)

Vegetable Soup (My favorite)

You can add or change vegetables to suit your tastes. The low calorie, cold day, warm you up soup!

Pork Stir Fry

A tasty stir fry, with pork and vegetables
I weigh out some ingredients, you may want to change it to cups. I'll try to help...
I use peanut oil for high smoke point, olive oil for flavour if you choose you may substitute with your favorite oil. Low calories leaves room for your favorite side dish and salad.
