Hungry-Girl Inspired Chicken Enchilada Soup

I lowered the sodium by not using the enchilada sauce. I make my own any how.

Almost Snickers Bars

Almost like the candy bar but better for you. If you do not like Coffee all it is is to make the batter moist and to blend better. You don't need a full cup just enough to make the batter moist enough to work with

20 Minute Chicken Creole-Remake

This quick Southern dish contains no added fat and very little added salt in its spicy tomato sauce.. I remade this. I took out the chili sauce to remove the extra sugar and cal.

Don't Fry Over Spilt Buttermilk...
Fried chicken is a true country classic, and buttermilk fried chicken's even better. Either way, it's far too fatty for us. But good news! We've made it over using lean chicken, lightened-up buttermilk, and our signature faux-fry method with some extra-special additions. It's so good, you'll want to slap somebody! (Please don't.)

HG So Low Low Mein

***Sodium Count for Sparkpeople is Wrong. HG has it as 925mg not the 1,441.3 mg Spark came up with****

Everyone loves lo mein. How can you not? It's basically Asian "spaghetti" packed with all kinds of deliciousness. But who on Earth wants to deal with the horrendous calorie and fat counts of regular old lo mein? CRAZY PEOPLE, that's who. Don't be crazy -- or LAZY. Head to the kitchen and whip up some of HG's So Low Mein w/Chicken. BTW, this recipe also rocks with soy "chicken" strips, lean beef, pork tenderloin, shrimp, and tofu. Wok on, people!
