Rich, filling and very healthy with over 4.5 cups of veggies added. A good source of protein, too!

Gobble Moo Meatloaf

Reduced sodium Cream of Chicken soup combined with ground chuck or ground beef along with rice and veggies make this a tasty, easy to prepare dish the whole family will enjoy. Experiment with the veggies you use, it's all good! Sweet corn goes well in this instead of carrots if you prefer.

Heart Healthy Slow Cooker Italian Pork Chops and Pasta

Using whole wheat pasta as your side boosts the fiber in this delicious and nutritious dish even your picky eaters will love. The sodium content is pretty good since you are using salt free tomatoes and not adding in additional salt. You can use fresh mushrooms instead of canned if you like. Using the slow cooker make it a really easy dish that looks and tastes like you really put a lot of effort and fuss into it!

Veggie Chicken Pasta Alfredo

Fast and easy hearty meal for the entire family that is chock full of veggies. You can add any vegetables you like such as broccoli. I used canned VegAll for convenience and rinsed it to get rid of sodium. That isn't reflected in the nutrition count, though. I also boil the pasta in homemade vegetable broth for extra flavor, but it isn't absolutely necessary and not reflected in the nutrition tracker. Tracker also reflects for 6, but we had leftovers!

Pollock Montreal

This is my tweaked version from a recipe on allrecipes.com

Easy Chicken Stroganoff with Veggies

Here's a healthier take on an old favorite. Chicken breasts instead of beef make this a better cholesterol choice and adding in vegetables is always a plus health-wise! Using packaged noodle mix does add sodium, but overall this is a healthier option and the taste really pops in this dish

Butternut Squash Ravioli in Sage Browned Butter

A meatless main dish of lush proportions.

MaryJane's After the Holidays Turkey Eggrolls

This recipe can be modified to a smaller amount, but I have a big family who show up after the holidays to collect their share of the turkey egg rolls, which have become a tradition in my family after Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. You will probably need more than a cup of oil...I use about 3 or 4, but only 1 cup or less will be absorbed into the eggrolls so I put 1 cup for the sake of the nutrition calculator.

MaryJane's Lemon Luscious Low Cal Dessert Bars

You can now make yummy desserts that call for powdered sugar by making your own lower calorie version. Sift together nonfat dry milk, cornstarch, and splenda or stevia for a great tasting powdered sugar substitute. It is so good in this recipe for lemon bars.
