This is a delightful, sweet salad containing vegetables, dried fruits, and nuts. You can definitely shave off some calories and fat by using a leaner bacon (or less of it), and using light mayo. I don't recommend using LESS dressing, though -- it really makes the salad!

Casseroles are easy to prepare, mix all the ingredients together and bake. Sometimes those can be a little boring though. Dividing this mixture of rice, beans and southwest spices into individual serving sizes makes them fun to eat and also easier to freeze. Itís easy to take a few out of the freezer and eat for a quick meal.
Take the hassle out of making your smoothies by cutting the fruit at once and freezing individual portions.
This is a great plain muffin recipe that can easily be added to and customized.
This green smoothie is delicious, mild-flavored, and gives you amazing energy. The recipe makes about 24 oz, and is what I have for breakfast every morning.
Great for raw diets, vegans, vegetarians, or anyone struggling to get more fresh fruit and vegetables into their diet.

This is a sturdy southern cornbread recipe. It is both hearty and delicious -- pairs wonderfully with chili, stews, and cooked beans.
A quick, delicious tomato and ground beef sauce -- perfect for spaghetti or over your favorite pasta.
Delicious black bean soup. Very satisfying and appeals to everyone!
Make sure you soak the beans overnight or leave yourself an additional 2 hours to do a quick soak! :)
This is a quick slow cooker recipe that is tender, flavorful and satisfying.
The sodium could be cut drastically with a low-sodium soy sauce and by substituting a low-sodium stock for the bouillon and water. (I just used what I had on-hand!)
This is a quick, tasty egg salad to make. You save major calories and gain a nice zip in your flavor with the mustard. This recipe is enough to fill two pita halves, but is also good on toast or crackers.
I threw this together from what I had in my pantry at the time. With proper planning, I'd use fat-free soup and sour cream. It is delicious as-is, but fat could certainly stand to be cut.
You can put the chicken into the slow cooker while still frozen, so prep time is virtually non-existent! A great choice to throw in before bed for lunch at work or in the morning for that night's dinner.
This recipe calls for two pounds of chicken, also because it was what I had available (three large breasts), but would make a great meal with just one pound, too.
I served this along with brown rice and black beans. Tasty!
This is a very good chili recipe. If you have ground beef or turkey, or some cooked chicken, you can add these to the chili, too. About 1/2 pound of ground meat or about 1 cup of cooked meat will be plenty. This recipe doesn't need meat to taste good, though--it is excellent just the way it is!
A quick, delicious meal that is great for lunch or a light dinner. Low in calories, high in protein and amazing in taste!
A quick, healthful and satisfying meal. Great for lunch, and easy to take-and-go! Save on calories and fat by omitting the cheese.
A delicious over-the-top smoothie that contains fresh fruit and NO sweeteners! Save on fat by using skim milk instead of 2%.
