Recipes I've Shared:

Vegetarian "Tortilla" Soup

A vegetarian version of Emeril's recipe. Delicious and filling on a cold day! Nutritional information is for a bowl of soup plus one toasted 6-inch corn tortilla.

Fruit Cobbler

Fresh summer stone fruits and a high-fiber, whole-grain crust. I made up this recipe to get rid of some of the overabundance of fruit I got from my local farmer's market. Any combination of stone fruits (peaches, plums, necatrines, cherries) or berries would work wonderfully.

Pearl Barley Salad

Fiber-full salad with veggies, low-fat sausage and smoked provolone

Biscuit-Topped Chicken

A hearty, delicious stew topped with Bisquick Heartsmart biscuits

Garbanzo bean echiladas

Low-fat cheese, chopped olives and smashed garbanzo beans give these enchiladas a healthy, hearty feel.


Incredible! (2 ratings)
Sopa de Pat (slow-simmered pig's feet soup)

Don't be put off by the thought of trotters! Pig's feet are simmered long and low to draw out their naturally occurring gelatin and calcium, creating a thick, rich soup that is low in fat and high in flavor and body. Add diced chicken for protein, or serve over egg noodles, potatoes, or with a thick slice of really good bread.

Note that nutrition estimates to the right include nutrition values for the pig's feet if they are eaten in the soup (Spark has done this automatically). This recipe just uses the pig's feet only to boil and to create a stock; actually eating the meat from the trotters is optional and by leaving it out the actual nutritional value may be changed accordingly.

French Toast with Toasted Almonds

A very filling and indulgent French toast. One slice will definitely fill you up. There are many opportunities to substitute low-fat things here (use buttery spread instead of butter, or use lower fat milk and sour cream, or 3 whole eggs + 3 egg whites, etc...)

Rich chicken and egg soup

A warm, comforting soup full of healthy protein, minerals, vitamins! Low in carbohydrates and very filling.

Vegetable smoothie

A fast way to get a healthy shot of vitamins and fiber. Filling and fresh, a good to-go alternative to a salad or a sugary energy bar!

Rich bean dip

Not really diet friendly, but if someone won't eat beans I bet they'll eat this.
