Edemame quinoa feta corn and red pepper salad, spiced up with salt, pepper, garlic and a good sized bunch of cilantro. Optional to include lemon juice. This recipe is without it.
This is similar to the traditional cucumber cucumber yogurt dish that I posted, but with 2 cups of chopped parsley added to it. It increases your intake of green leafy veggies and tastes really good on pita chips, or by itself. (See my other recipe for other hints/ideas). Plus, just like the other recipe, I used the Brown Cow yogurt becaue it has the MOST protein per serving (23g) compared to all of the other Greek and/or "high protein" yogurts.
Gluten free pasta, lots of veggies, some hot spices and nice juicy dark meat chicken with the skin and bones removed. Low sodium as well, for soup. :-)
This stir fry is vegan / vegetarian, high protein (for a veggie dish), high fiber (over 7g), low fat (3%), low carb (12%), and can be eaten as a meal or a side dish. As a meal, just do 2 servings (about 12 oz... or 350 grams). As a side dish you can serve it with whatever you like. I'm not actually vegan or vegetarian, so I would eat this with baked/broiled chicken, and/or toasted pita bread with the high protein yogurt made by Brown Cow (since it's 23g per cup). The yogurt I make into a dip with some spices mixed in. Also, if you want this stir fry a little more "spicy" you can add a little hot sauce. You can also add this mix to some beef or chicken broth to make it a soup.
This is just a fruit and yogurt smoothy made with the Greek yogurt that has 23g of protein in a 1 cup serving. Other Greek yogurts have about 15g per serving. I just basically wanted to be able to make a high protein shake without the "powder protein" taste to it.
Under 165 calories for a 2 cup serving! Lots of options for replacing veggies with other veggies, or change beef to chicken, etc.
I usually make a double batch of this. It's great to have it on hand all the time. :-) And the quinoa was used so I could make it gluten free. Salt and pepper should be 'to taste'. Other recipes add olive oil. I decide not to because it doesn't seem to add anything to the taste or texture, and therefore the extra fat grams are not worth putting it in.
This can be eaten as a salad or dip, or if you add a little water it can be a soup. Goes well by itself or as a dip with many types of bread (toasted is best).
Low-fat dip that can be served warm or cold, on veggies, bread or crackers. Other things can be added for taste, such as garlic or some sort of hot spice of your choice.
This is a powerful yet light breakfast and/or snack wrap. You can add whatever spices you want to suit your own taste. But this is a high protein, high fiber, low fat, low carb, yummy filling breakfast or snack, for less than 220 calories!
This salsa is chunky, tasty, and low in sodium. It's already hard enough to keep sodium levels under the 2300 mg max suggested by the experts. This was one way to keep a delicious treat and not have to worry about my sodium.
This recipe is for anyone who likes a variety of rice krispy treats, with a twist. This works by taking one portion of each of the three treats made.
If you want something else to dip your chips or veggies in, this is a spicy change from typical dressings or dips. This is definitely for garlic lovers. Some hints are given in the instruction for making this recipe versitile and still remain healthy.
This is such a yummy healthy snack! Salt is optional. You can add other spices that you like if you want.
A fun and healthy way to add more veggies to a great tasting side dish. Even the kids will love it! This is not quick like the microwave type mac and cheese that the kids love. But, this is healthier, easy and fun for kids to help, and yummy enough for them to eat. My 6 y.o. loved it over the Easy Mac she used to eat.
Very filling and satisfying snack that gives you protein, fruit, and carbs. Fun and easy for kids to make.
