Great comfort food for those chilly nights or when you want a light supper of soup and salad
Great way to serve a balanced, but fun dinner everyone will love. Serve with tortilla chips or whole wheat tortillas and a green salad.
A fairly easy dish to prepare and lower in sodium thanks to a spark recipe for an incredibly flavorful taco/fajita seasoning! You CAN use chicken breasts, but the boneless, skinless thighs give the dish a much moister, juicier flavor.
A new way to eat and prepare a spark favorite!
The fresh sunshine taste of oranges with all the oomph and get up and go of a green smoothie...kids love it! Low in sodium, high in potassium, and nearly 9 grams of fiber!
Rich, filling and very healthy with over 4.5 cups of veggies added. A good source of protein, too!
I've learned to make so many recipes healthier for my picky family by "hiding" ground turkey by adding it to lean ground beef. This meatloaf is so simple and quick to prepare. Bakes in an hour and is great with boiled potatoes, carrots, celery, cabbage and onions.
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.
Slow cooker ease with cooked all day taste
Frozen berries and frozen pineapple chunks blended with milk, yogurt, apple juice and fresh spinach for a refreshing and healthy way to get vitamins and fiber. Add as much spinach as you like to the blender. Makes a very filling snack and a fantastic way to get some dark green spinach into your diet without tasting it!

This is a recipe I have entered in Fischer and Wieser's Mom's Product Recipe contest. My husband loves it!
This hearty and healthy one pot meal is a family favorite. Very high in vitamins A and C, and folate. It packs 7 grams of fiber and 37 grams of protein in it.
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!
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!
This is my tweaked version from a recipe on allrecipes.com
Quick, easy, and very flavorful!
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
A meatless main dish of lush proportions.
You'll love the taste of fresh baby spinach, mushrooms, and imitation crab in this easy to fix quiche! Light sour cream is substituted for the usual mayonaise.
Turkey Bacon, Baby Spinach, and Grape Tomatoes give the comfort food feel of a Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich to this easy to make quiche. Mushrooms and Cheeses blend to give it a lush, hearty feel. Light sour cream is substituted for the usual mayo.
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.
