Mori-Nu Tofu Stir Fry

From the box, Use Extra firm tofu. Uses one box 12.3 oz, or 349 grams.

No Bake Cookies, lower calorie & lower fat

Fresh Fruit Salad with vanilla yogurt

I was having hard time getting my kids to eat much fresh fruit. By mixing these together with one carton of vanilla (or any flavor) fat free yogurt, they loved it. Seemed more like dessert. Could be served with a slice of angelfood cake or a muffin for breakfast. Use any fruit you have on hand, even toss in some chopped walnuts, raisins, just adjust the calories and fat if you add nuts.

Waffles, Low fat Bisquick with Condensed sweet milk-1 lg waffle

The condensed milk adds a touch of sweetness so that you don't need syrup. Leftovers go in the freezer for a quick breakfast on the run or a snack. Can top with fruit or peanut butter.

Black Bean, Corn & Tomato Salsa Salad

This is great as a side dish, with tortilla chips, over greens or as a topping on chicken or fish. Great way to use up leftover ears of corn or an explosion of home grown tomatoes.

Big A** Veggie Burrito from the "Skinny Bitch in the Kitch"

This is a veggie/vegan burrito. The original recipe called for using a whole pound of vegan cheese, but i cut that in half. if you use more than 1/4 cup of cheese on each burrito, then you will need to adjust for the calories. With using the whole pound of cheese, each burrito would be about 601 calories.
