A traditional antipasto salad bulked up with spinach.
This is the first of a series of 100 calorie breakfast foods that I will be adding. I can mix and match two or three different recipes to add variety to my breakfasts and still be around 300 to 400 calories.
Great with yogurt tartar sauce.
Everything that I love on my foot long sub, minus the bread and cheese.
This is not my recipe-
Great with grilled chicken.

This is the best ranch dressing that I have ever made. I have searched high and low for a recipe that I like. I actually LOVE this, and it's much healthier then the store bought mixes, or, heaven forbid, bottled dressing. Sometimes I like it less sweet, so I just leave out the agave nectar, and whatever you do, make sure the garlic is raw and fresh. This is super important!
Baked not fried!
Very high in vitamins A & C and a good source of calcium, iron and fiber.
Easy to make, and a family favorite, but very high in fat and calories.
Half traditional ingredients, like; white flour, butter and brown sugar, and half healthy ingredients like stevia, ground nuts and oat flour.
Chicken takes the place of the bread and cheese. Top with your favorite pizza toppings. You can also make home made Italian chicken sausage to top the "pizza".
Top pancakes, or top with granola and nuts, or even fill a tiny pie :)
Don't forget to eat those skins!
They taste more like French toast then pancakes, but who doesn't like French toast?
No cheese in this version!
Good with "Oat and Brown Rice Lavish Bread" or corn tortillas.
They turn out a deep brown color because of all the molasses, but don't you leave it out, because it has a big boost of hard-to-get Potassium, calcium and magnesium.
I needed something for guacamole and came up with this recipe.
I saw those cauliflower pizza crust recipes and thought to add a shredded potato which made it so yummy, but nothing like pizza crust. I used it as a sandwich and it was a lot of fun. I will be buying a lot more cauliflower from now on.
I can't believe this was so good. I wasn't expecting to like it THIS much. I did not miss the pasta at all. Seriously!
130 calories just like the original!
When I am missing my favorite take-out "Super Fries" from the drive through in San Diego, I make my healthier version with barbecued chicken instead of beef. You can reduce the fat by omitting the avocado.
I thought I would be making this only for myself, but my boys say that they like it as much as fried chicken, so I have to make larger and larger batches.
I was trying to make a copycat version of our favorite fast food chicken. The citrus sauce is a home run, both tasted very good but nothing like the fast food version. The boys asked me to write this one down.
to make ahead for a sack lunch or pick-nick, add a couple lettuce leaves on the bread to keep it from absorbing too much liquid in the salad. To dress it up a bit add; tomato, pickle and bacon.
Everything I love about a basic hamburger, only in salad form. Just as good as the sandwich in my opinion.
I have very little money. I am forced to purchase lower priced ground turkey, but they contain way more fat then I want (15%- yikes!) So, I grind my own chicken breast in a food processor and I mix it in to the prepackaged turkey. Voila! 7% meat. I have found that I prefer the flavor in any dish that calls for ground turkey, especially burgers.
Similar to the shrimp burritos at fish taco stands in my home town in San Diego county, my version is pretty much the same- if not, better.
A little bit of extra labor in cooking the taco shells twice is well worth the effort. The shells that taste just like you fried them. Watch the time though, they overcook easily.
For a western version, my Mom added 2 tbsp. chili powder and a dash of Cayenne. If I have fresh rosemary and oregano, I would omit the Italian seasoning and add a teaspoon of each instead.
Easy, easy, easy.
I used to love frozen Mexican Quiche. Using a bell pepper ring for the sides and crushed crackers for the base means I don't have to go without the crust.
