Recipes I've Shared:

Creamy Grits (1 Cup)

I combine this with vegetables (1/2 onion diced, 4 stalks celery diced, 3/4 C green peppers (capsicum) diced, 254g/9oz spinach and 2 medium tomatoes chopped) sauted in Pam (or equivalent cooking spray) and 1 TBS of oil and seasoned with Mrs. Dash's Chipotle Seasoning to taste.

It is a very filling meal that my carnivore husband LOVES!

(Calorie count does not include the vegetables as this may vary based on what is available...okra is a great addition as well!)

"Light" Eggplant Parmesan

Adapted from Prevention Magazine (September 2010)
I eliminated 1/4 C of olive oil from recipe by using Pam.
I could have reduced calories/fat more if I had not picked up Whole Milk Ricotta and used Part Skim Milk Ricotta instead.
The ricotta adds an additional dimension both in flavor and texture to the recipe.
Using an Italian brand tomato eliminated LOADS of sodium as well.

Quick and Easy Spicy Corn and Black Bean Salad

This is TRULY quick and easy! Low in calories (95.7 per 1/2 Cup serving) and a good amount of fiber (4.9g). Unfortunately, it is higher in sodium (380.4 mg) than I would like to have, but as I use little to no salt while cooking its a trade off.

Pasta e Fagioli (Bianca) - Pasta and Beans (White)

Pasta and Bean Soup (White) - There are almost as many version of this traditional Italian soup as there are Italians! Unlike what seems to be most frequently seen in Italian restaurants in the U.S., this version is what you will most frequently (in my experience) be served in an Italian home.

High Fiber Vegetarian Sandwich

Spinach, Tomato, & Scallion spiced up with Southwest Chipotle seasoning make for a tasty sandwich.

Non-Fat Smoothie

Fast and easy non-fat snack!
