This dish just cries "Summer" and it's one of my favorite dishes to make in late July, early August when the Farmer's Market is flush with these favorite vegetables.
If you prefer, you can peel the eggplant, but we love the added texture and flavor. I often make ahead on Sunday for dinner later in the week as the flavors marry and deepen if allowed to sit a day or two. Serve over whole grain pasta for a healthy vegetarian dinner that your kids will love. Submitted by COPEKAT
I tweaked a few recipes to create a low cal - low fat - low sugar banana bread that tastes good! Easy to make - and an easy indulgence that will allow you to fry it in light butter and still keep it under 100 calories!Submitted by TNOVEMBER
I need protein in the morning or I'm starving before 10! I like to sleep until the last minute possible, but need breakfast on the go. I was buying those Jimmie Dean Egg White sandwiches, when I thought "I can make these MYSELF, and CHEAPER too!" I cook up a dozen egg whites at a time - the LAZY way--I spray a silicone muffin pan with non-stick spray and place 1 egg white in each muffin cup and bake at 400 until done (about 15 minutes). I let them cool and freeze them in ziplocs. This is a great way to use up your eggs before they get old and saves me time in the morning. By the time I toast my multigrain thin (or you can use a light english muffin) the egg white are heated up in the microwave (about 30 seconds). I slap them on my toasted mutigrain thins with a slice of cheese and head out the door!Submitted by WISHICOULDFLY
This simple, nutritious soup can be changed to your liking by making your own broth or switching the types of beans. I used green lentils, but red lentils, and garbanzos are great as well. Submitted by BRANUBODY08
A Vegetarian alternative to the classic Chicken Noodle Soup. This soup is hearty, flavorful, very low cal, and full of good for you veggies! The broth can be used in other recipes as a substitute for veggie broth, which I hate, or any meat broth.Submitted by SKAADI
Hearty split pea soup that is so easy to make. This is also one of the cheapest meals you can make, you can eat for practically pennies. This is vegetarian, and vegan, but even meat eaters will like it (my husband would say so). Only 78 calories!! If you are watching your sodium, choose Low Sodium Bouillon cubes. I buy my yellow split peas in bulk from whole/natural food stores. Wonderful autumn and winter soup. Submitted by CAMILLE-LEON
This recipe was given to me by a nutritionist. I used low/no salt products. It was such a surprise. It was so good. I now love lentil soup.
She told us that lentils are great for your blood sugar, helping suppress rapid rises.Submitted by THREEKITTYS
