This is a very versatile recipe with substitutions that can make the cookies tastier or healthier, depending on the ingredients. The ingredients in the recipe are, in my opinion, the best combination of taste and nutrition. They can certainly be healthier or tastier, but that's up to you. I've tried many of the alternative ingredients and think they all work well. Enjoy!Submitted by AND_SCENE
I just looooove the flavor of the Oriental flavor ramen, but don't want the MSG or high salt. Here is a copycat that tastes just like it, without the sodium. I use it in everything now, and add salt to taste.Submitted by MZMARGO
I am a huge fan of ramen. I am -not- a huge fan of the seasoning packets that -come- with the ramen, though. After having had real, Japanese ramen, it's hard to stomach those blah packet-flavors, and they're so, so salty. And thus, this is one ramen broth recipe I'd found (and have heavily modified) to make one of the huge bowls of Japanese-style miso-flavored ramen that I love so well.
NOTE: This does -not- include the calories for the noodles themselves! You can use basic packaged ramen noodles, or soba noodles, rice noodles... basically, anything you prefer to use is good. Or you can leave them out entirely. The choice is up to you!Submitted by LADYPIXEL
This is not quite the traditional cold ramen dish served in Japan during the summer. It's almost vegetarian. The vegetables have been doubled to produce two servings. That means the sodium and carbs are cut in half.Submitted by JOHNKAWAKAMI
Banana and oatmeal are a perfect pair in these not-too-sweet treats.
Good as a side dish or dessert, this salad made from fresh fruit is naturally low in fat, saturated fat, and sodium. Plus, it's cholesterol free.
I took a recipe that a friend had and tweaked it a bit (to make it a bit healthier)....it's AMAZING!! Enjoy! I served it over tri-color fusili pasta, but it would be equally delicious with rice, or even patty shells or biscuits. (recipe does not include nutritional info for pasta, etc)Submitted by ANDI34
Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set". Submitted by LIFEHASCHANGES
