Recipes I've Shared:

Gluten Free Vegan Fudge

This gluten free vegan fudge is easy, sinfully sweet, and only has under 4 g of sugar per one inch square!

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

These are the easiest muffins you'll ever make. They're soft and tasty and no one ever has to know how easy they were!

St. Patty's Day Cupcakes

Green cupcakes! Awesome recipe. Even better- make them and then set out assorted frosting/sprinkles and have the kids help decorate them!

Elysa's Lentil Soup

The easiest, tastiest soup!

Elysa's Vegan Lasagna

HUGE portion! Meat free, egg free, dairy free, cholesterol free! This is a recipe (slightly different) that I found on I couldn't find the recipe for the tofu ricotta that they use because, for some reason, they don't list it.

Elysa's Low Fat Granola

This is pretty much just like Sparkpeople's Low Fat Granola, except I substituted the maple syrup for agave nectar (it isn't weird- you can find it at Wal-Mart by the sugar- not sugar! Perfect!) and I left out the dried fruit, switched up the nuts a bit, and saved nearly 100 calories per serving.

Very Good (3 ratings)
Orange flavored Sweet Potatoes with Oatmeal Cookie Topping

Recipe from Cori Loughman of Greenfield, Ind.
A fantastic twist on a seasonal classic!
I lightened it up a little bit: from almost 700 calories per serving to under 350!

Elysa's Toucan Chili

Follow your nose!! This "Toucan" Chili is an easy, delicious version of a hearty, vegetarian chili. It has FAR less fat and sodium than conventional canned chilis and ZERO cholesterol.

Elysa's Lighter Kraft Macaroni and Cheese

I make my daughter Kraft Mac and Cheese with Rice Milk and Smart Balance Light. Okay, I like it too... :) By making it this way, I save 124 calories per serving!!

Elysa's Lighter Creamy Parmesan Tuna Helper

This is made with Smart Balance light and Rice Milk instead of the normal butter and whole milk. Save 30 calories per serving and 4.2 grams of fat.

Elysa's Lasagna Bites

Bite sized lasagna pieces are perfect for kids, lunch on the go, or just people who love fun food. Be careful, you might not be able to stop after just one serving!!

Elysa's Mm-Mm-Meatballs

These are wonderfully EASY meatballs. Ground turkey instead of beef makes it easier on the belly and heart!

Elysa's Oven Fries

This is a tasty alternative to deep fat fried french fries. You save calories without skimping on flavor!!

Elysa's Breakfast Bread

This is a super yummy breakfast bread and with only 4 ingredients, it's easy, too!!

Elysa's Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie made with fresh pumpkin. Makes 8 slices

Elysa's Low Cal Pumpkin Pie

A yummy, MUCH lower calorie version of the traditional pumpkin pie. It's 150 calories less than my original recipe per slice!!

Elysa's For-Lack-of-Lettuce Zesty Italian Salad

This is an easy, yummy salad that even the biggest meat-and-tater guy will love.

Elysa's Creamy Tater and Clam Soup

This is a mix of potato and clam chowder. It's super yummy and wonderful for busy winter weekdays. *Note: If you aren't too fond of a really fishy taste, use a can of plain clams (meat only) instead of the white clam sauce. You'll also save on fat and calories, I believe.
