Whey Protein Waffles with Sausage-stye Spices

I was craving breakfast sausage and weary of drinking my breakfast.

Pork Cacciatore

Turn leftover pork into a delicious weeknight meal

Quick Stripped Tortilla Soup

This "tortilla" soup has the delicious flavors but trades out hominy for beans and omits meat and tortillas.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Broccoli, Cauliflower & Edamame Soup

Inspired by Vegetarian Times Broccoli-Edamame Soup with Jumbo Goat Cheese Croutons.
Don't be alarmed by the sodium. Just choose low sodium vegetable broth instead of "Better than Bullion" and water.

Baked Chiles Rellenos with Black Beans

Modified Chile Relleno to work with The 4-Hour Body Slow-Carb plan.

Black Bean and Ro*Tel Tomato Soup

I made this with regular beef broth, but I would recommend using low-sodium beef broth instead. If you don't want to retype the recipe, put negative 3/4 cup Progresso 100% beef broth in your meal and then put 3/4 cup whatever broth you used instead.

Masa Crepes

This crepe batter recipe incorporates instant masa for a more robust flavor. Good for using up masa.

Very Good (3 ratings)
Chicken Carbonara

Olive Garden has a tempting Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara, but it has over 1400 calories and 3 grams of sodium. With stats like these, I could only afford a tiny taste and I want to enjoy the whole dish.

While the original dish has shrimp, I want to simplify the preparation by limiting the proteins. Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta is a good compromise between whole grain pasta and white flour pasta. The egg substitute can be replaced with egg whites you don't keep both whole eggs and egg substitute at home.

Pizza Stuffed Peppers

Leave out the olives if you are trying to cut down on the sodium.

Not Quite Chili

It's not quite chili, but it's good. I used low sodium canned beans, so the actual sodium can be lower than calculated
