Avacado-Corn Salad

served this with chicken enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas

A spicy chicken mixture is blended with a creamy soup mixture, rolled up in ww tortillas and baked with low-fat cheddar on top. mmmmm

Sweet Potato Carrot Soup

So simple, yet so tasty!

Chicken & Mango Kabobs

Succulent chunks of chicken & colorful skewers of fruit & veggies make a great meal. Serve with brown or wild rice - wonderful.

Tex-Mex Beef pizza

On of our favorites - who says you can't have pizza on a low fat diet?
We always use the whole can of refried beans, mixed with 3/4 cup of salsa and then just freeze what you don't use.

Dan's Simple Banana Bread

Ever wonder what to do with those bananas that get too ripe?
We got this recipe from a friend, it's great with a cup of coffee! For a variation you could add chopped nuts or raisins, but make sure to update your nutritional info.

Cranberry Chicken Wraps

Loaded with cranberries, chicken, & apples, these nutritious wraps are fast, moist and flavorful

One-pot Macaroni with Beef & Tomatoes

This is a pretty basic easy casserole. Next time I will try adding Feta cheese to give it a different taste. If that works I'll modify the recipe.

Dan's Beef & Veggie Spanish Rice

It's a bit of work preparing all the veggies, but it's worth it. This can easily be made vegan by omitting the beef - our daughter likes it this way.

Apple Raisin Cole Slaw

very simple basic cole slaw


Incredible! (2 ratings)

From Good Housekeeping. Wondering what to do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers?

Homemade Apple Pie Pancakes

One of our favorite week-end brunch recipes. Great with turkey bacon on the side.

Veggie & Chickpea Stew

A very satisfying dish. The cinnamon is an interesting spice to add, but it tastes great!

Dan's Spicy Orange Chicken

Borrowed and modified from the book "Simply Great Food'. So tasty, one of our favorites. Usually served with steamed vegetables and cooked wild rice.

Homemade Salsa Burgers

Great on the BBQ! Keeps well in the freezer. I like to serve this with sauteed onions & mushrooms & low-fat mayo. I don't use a bun to keep down my calories, but my wife does. Try it with BBQ sweet potatoes - outstanding!

Carrot Soup

this is a wonderful, thick, tasty soup. Great for a cold day! Another idea for a different taste is to substitute the spices for 2 pinches nutmeg, 1/2 tsp dried mint & a dash of cinnamon

Dan's Low Fat Clubhouse sandwich

I just use 2 slices of bread to keep down my calories. My wife will use 3 slices & have a triple-decker clubhouse - very good!

Homemade Meatballs

I like to make a batch and then freeze them. They can be taken out and used in many recipes.

Breakfast Muffins

Muffins are perfect for breakfast, providing the energy boost the body needs to start the day. This breakfast muffin is packed full of good ingredients that add fibre, vitamins and minerals, too. Our muffin tray is the jumbo size so I only get 6 muffins - double the calories, but a great breakfast!
For a variation, substitute blue berries for raisins & add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Another variation: add a dash of nutmeg, stir 2 small grated carrots into the flour mixture and reduce the amount of raisins to 1/4 cup

Apple Raisin Oatmeal

A great breakfast for a cold morning

Blueberry whole-wheat pancakes

A favorite brunch idea, with the blueberries - wonderful!

Caramelized Onion & Feta Cheese Pizza

I used to make my own dough, but it's so much simpler & faster using the Arabic flat bread

Tasty Tuna Cakes

good for lunch or dinner. Serve with low fat mayo, lettuce, tomatoes in a whole wheat bun.

Mexican Chicken Soup

Can be as spicy as you like, we use a medium salsa

Quick Shepherd's Pie

Fast and easy, one of our favorites
