good chewy meatball substitute, high in protein, very flavorful
Simple salad that is wonderful served on romaine lettuce leaves, or with bread and sprouts. The celery adds a nice crunch! You can use real mayo, but I find that the greek yogurt works great *if* you use a dill pickle relish, as the vinegar in the pickles really rounds out the flavor. Yes, bit more sodium, but I'm okay with that.
AWESOME source of protein, here.
This is a simple base, low-cal, high protein hot cereal to start your day. You can add whatever you want to it, I find it's easier to track with a recipe base and then I just add what I fancied that morning for breakfast. My main problem with the other hot cereals I've found on spark is that they come with spices, etc. already added, and I don't want those in my calorie count-- I want to make a different breakfast every day! I have savory and sweet suggestions in the "cooking instructions."
Easy freezer and cupboard version with high protein and fiber. I serve with a small nuked potato and top the tater sour cream, decadent, delicious, and super filling.
NOTE: nutritional value does NOT include seasoning, so sodium is way off!
delicious and unique side for any chicken or fish dish-- nice change from rice, quinoa or pasta! NOTE: seasonings (chives, cayenne, singapore seasoning) are NOT in tracker.
NOTE: sauce is NOT added to tracker. Why? Because when you eat the salad, you get just the flavoring of the sauce-- it's so thin that it doesn't really stick to the fruit at all. So unless you drink it like a soup, it doesn't really add many calories at all. for those that are super trackers, I would add maybe 10 calories of straight carbs (sugar-- fructose, honey) to each 1 cup serving.
cheese, meat, eggs, pastry only-- no onion, fresh spinach, or garlic or seasonings added in tracker. WHY? because Pure Veg don't add hardly any calories (I consider them freebies), and most people like diff veg. This way you can use this recipe and add your own veg as you see fit.
cheese, meat, eggs, pastry only-- no sundried tomatoes (they were NOT packed in oil, veg only), fresh spinach, fresh tomatoes or garlic or seasonings added in tracker. WHY? because Pure Veg don't add hardly any calories (I consider them freebies), and most people like diff veg. This way you can use this recipe and add your own veg as you see fit.
sweet and tangy, peppy and super delicious vegetarian pizza. Inspired from Pizza Luce's "BBQ Rustler" Pizza. YUMMY.
These are large portions. You can cut down portion size, or go to a low fat cheese to save on calories. Any BBQ sauce will do. So yummy you will die! mmmmmmmm.
This is a fabulous lowfat dressing over fruit or salads. It is sweet and fruity with a little vinegar tang. My favorite use for this dressing is one of two ways:
1. tossed with shredded romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onion, green peppers, and imitation salad crab pieces, with a little lime zest and black pepper
2. 1cucumber and 1 green or yellow bell pepper, chopped with whole cherry tomatoes.
Serving size is two tablespoons.

This is one of my favorite "OMG I have only 15 minutes!" meals. It's super creamy and delicious, and prep time in no time! I use a magic bullet for this as it's microwave friendly, but you could use a food processor or blender if necessary. Obviously, you could use fresh vegetables for better nutrition-- which would up the prep time, go to a low sodium pasta sauce (but I LOVE my salt), or cut out the parm cheese to cut out calories, but the parm really fills out the flavor and my goal is to make something healthy, fast, and really really delicious. NOTE: This is the sauce only, with veggies. I use one serving of Barilla Plus Penne pasta usually with mine, but it's also great over a cut up chicken breast, brown rice, or any thing else. It makes A LOT of veggie saucy goodness-- you could easily split this into two servings, but with the low calories, you can afford to splurge!
easy peasy snack, super satisfying and salty-- high protein healthy substitute for potato chips, buttery popcorn, pretzels, etc.
GREAT CROCK POT dish-- an interesting blend of spices create a very complex flavor-- this is really good over pasta, brown rice, steamed vegetables, corn...
