Paula Deen's Broiled Parmesan Tomatoes *Tweaked

I was looking for a new veggie side dish for dinner one night and saw Paula making this on TV. I entered her original recipe and it didn't seem too bad. I decided to modify the recipe to see if I could lower the calories and fat and still keep the taste...it worked! You could also add a couple garlic cloves and some fresh basil before serving to make it more of an Italian tasting side dish.

Banana Berry Smoothie

This smoothie is a quick and easy snack or breakfast-on-the-go. I like to use frozen mixed berries and a banana but, you can easily mix it up...strawberry banana, blueberry banana, raspberry banana, peach banana, blackberry banana...all taste great and are full of healthy antioxidants! Very low fat and could be even lower if skim milk was used. You could also increase the healthiness by using vanilla soy milk instead of the FF creamer. Enjoy!

Chicken Salad

A sweet and savory chicken salad that is quick and easy to make. I like to make this with the leftovers from a rotisserie chicken. You can also use boiled chicken breasts or baked chicken breasts. Also, if you don' t have apples on hand, you can use grapes...the little bit of sweet among all of the savory ingredients makes this really yummy!

Sloppy Joes

This is surprisingly a lower calorie meal but, the fat is kinda high....substitute the ground beef for ground turkey for lower fat. This recipe is best the longer it cooks and can be placed in a crockpot after its made to make it even more rich in flavors. Calorie count is for 8 Regular size buns but, you could divide this among 24 rolls and make as an appetizer for a party. Can be as spicy or mild as you like it.

Strawberry Pretzel Squares

A low fat version of my mom's strawberry pretzel squares. Similar to a strawberry cheesecake but very light. My mom used to make this when I was a kid but with full fat ingredients. It's great in the summer time for cookouts or brunches. The calories are higher than I expected. I think because I made the crust w/ sugar. I wasn't sure how it would hold up with Splenda.
