From "Ditch The Wheat"
Just over 2 grams of net carbs per 4 tots
Juicy even if you cook them well done!
Very, very good.
No knife required.
This is one of my favorite make-ahead grab-&-go meals. If you would rather make a casserole, use a 9x9 pan. Double the recipe if your whole family wants to indulge.
This dish really is like eating a cheeseburger.
This is so yummy & really does have the taste & texture of a corn muffin
Less than 5 net grams of carbs per 1 oz serving
So good & low carb. I will be working on a potato salad using this vegetable! Tastes better than the cauli mash recipes!
This shake will hold you much better than smoothies or plain protein shakes.
This is great over a tossed salad or as a protein snack.
Tastes good as a soup as well.
Such a simple dish & very yummy!!
Net Carbs = 4.6 grams
Net carbs = 7.9 grams
I adapted this recipe from America's Test Kitchen. Love the toasting of the flour for a thickener - worked great!
This is perfect on a Spinach Salad
Similar to Outback's dish.
I love to make huge batches & divide into different dishes to freeze & eat another time. It is very good - has the grand kids seal of approval. The ground turkey helps to bring down the calorie load.
Tastes great over oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, etc.
I was afraid my husband would hate these because of the dressing used in the slaw. Wrong - he LOVED it as did I.
Altered from Dr. Oz's web site "Carb-Cutter's Chicken Cordon Bleu"
I got this recipe from Free The Animal. http://freetheanimal.com/2012/07/fat-bread
Yummy with anything but especially great with roast beef sandies, burgers, hot dogs, roast chicken!
Such an easy dish to make. If you like add potatoes or other root vegetable to the bottom of the pot prior to cooking. Rice or noodles can also be a nice side dish.
One of my favorites lightened up a bit.
I slightly adapted this original recipe on Simply Recipes (posted by Elise) at http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/skillet_t
Better than "Shake n Bake"!
If you don't like spicy, leave out the cayenne & use regular yellow mustard or even a honey mustard.
I put a bit of red taco sauce on the plate & dip the eggs in it.
I did try using 2 large eggs, too much for me & here in my town it's really hard to find medium sized eggs.
Got this recipe from readyseteat.com.
I got the original recipe from Snack Girl at http://www.snack-girl.com/snack/light-tuna
4/29/12 Made the muffins. They are not a sweet muffin but a savory one, so you may want to add some salt/pepper. They do not raise either.
This dish can be made ahead of time & assembled just before cooking, add at least 10-15 minutes more cooking time. You can also leave the tortillas out, slice them into 8 pieces each, spray them with Pam & bake until crispy.
By all means, take a little extra time to thicken the juices - you won't be sorry.
Super easy recipe that I adapted from Snack-Girl.com. I was very surprised because I heard that kale is bitter - NOT - these are YUMMY!!
I adapted this recipe from the Dr. Oz website. It's a heart healthy comfort food that even your kids will love.
This has been a favorite of my family's for decades. It makes great sandwiches.
Yummy - this is one of my favorites now. The stew is quite thick. I did top it with about 1 tbsp of shredded parmesan cheese & mixed in some light sour cream after dishing it out into my bowl (not included in nutritional values). I even prepared some left overs for lunch at work tomorrow & topped it with another cup of mixed vegetables & a bit of water for reheating. Because the sodium content is high, I think I'll try a salt free boullion in place of the store bought broth.
I love the combination of the mustard and canola mayonnaise (much lower in fat than regular). It adds a nice flavor really gives the panko coating something to stick to. I hope you like it too. If you don't like spicy, leave out the cayenne & use regular yellow mustard or even a honey mustard.
I adapted this recipe from an Alaskan cookbook. My husband and I fell in love with this dish. You can further cut the calories by using a no fat or reduced fat sour cream. Whatever you do - don't skip the onions!
These get a very nice carmelized crust on the edges. They make GREAT leftovers.
One of my favorites lightened up a bit.
I prefer the sweet bread & butter pickles with this but only had the dill kind. Still quite good.
You can find this vinegar at Oliver's in San Clemente, CA.
My daughter gave me this idea. Salt lover's may want to salt this dish but those on lower sodium. Personally I'll be adding some cayenne pepper next time. Large portion size at 6 servings. Tasty!
If you don't like the heat, leave out the chipotle pepper flakes. Gorgonzola cheese has a strong flavor so at times (depending on my company), I'll use Swiss cheese.
Sodium per 113g is 319mg; Calories 145; Fat 8.2g
I buy a whole rotisserie chicken at the grocery store for this recipe and use only the dark meat for the soup. Use the breast for salads & sandwiches. 1 cup serving has 138 mg sodium
Very healthy low cal, super easy, and flavorful drink.
Super easy and delicious! Less than 360mg sodium per 1.5 cup serving.
Recipe adapted from Real Simple. Has less than 355mg sodium per serving.
This is a reduced sodium dish. I dropped the noodles from 12oz to 8oz to further reduce the calories.
Adapted from recipe found at http://my.hearthealthyonline.com. 305 mg sodium per serving.
This dish has a nice nutty taste. Total of 78 mg of sodium per 1/2 cup serving. If you like it spicier - add more cayenne.
This has got a wonderful gravy and is an easy dish to make. My husband who loves his salt and hates mushrooms really like the taste (after removing the mushrooms to my plate). Less than 90mg sodium per serving.
Sodium is just under 7mg per serving and 52 calories. This is a great basting sauce for chicken breasts also.
Found a starter recipe and built on it. Serve with whole wheat spaghetti noodles for a nutritious dinner with about 95 mg of sodium
Cooked this one up mainly for sandwich meat. A crock pot can be used instead of a dutch oven. Contains 101 mg of sodium per 3oz slice of meat with sauce.
Approx 77 mg sodium per serving size. Makes 10 patties. I like to mix 1/2 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp of no salt added ketchup for a condiment (tastes like a steak sauce).
Sodium per serving 88 mg. Very yummy
14.3 mg sodium per 4 oz serving. Yummy sweet pickle will keep 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Hubby loves the onions in this.
94 mg sodium per serving. Serves 10, 1 cup servings. The vinegar really give this good tang and the fruit adds the sweetness.
I like to make a large batch and use leftovers for sandwiches or salads. Much lower in sodium than what you'll find in the store!
This is a delicious dish but I did add "Nu-Salt" to the finished product. I do miss my salt.
Potatoes are higher in potassium that bananas. I keep them a part of my diet because it's a nutrient I seem to be short of consistently. Plus my husband's a meat and potatoes guy.
Moose meat is very low in fat but if you don't have a hunter in the family substitute a lean beef burger or turkey burger. I threw the spinach in because it was left over from lunch - always trying to get more veggies in (my husband loves this dish but HATES spinach, shhh don't tell). I add some red pepper flakes to increase the heat.
A slightly spicier CPP.
Got this recipe from the Smuckers web site. Sounds Yummy!
