Recipes I've Shared:

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

I love mac-n-cheese like everyone else but I know that the boxed kind is not as healthy and also has little comparison in taste.

Tofu and Spinach Stuffed Shells

I altered a recipe from Cooking Yourself Thin because I use tofu with recipes like this to increase protein and reduce fat.

Incredible! (3 ratings)
No-Sugar Blackberry Jam

I love making my own jam!!

Perfect Oatmeal

I add in ground almonds to my oatmeal to give extra protein. You certainly can omit this or try a different nut, chopped or ground. Any alterations will change the nutritional value of the recipe, however,

Strawberry Yogurt

Yogurt made sweet without sugar!

You can eat the whole recipe or divide in half for less calories!

Hot Cocoa Mix with Truvia

From Truvia's recipe website

Baked Zucchini Halves

A new way to use extra zucchini!!

Garlic Italian Crackers

An altered recipe from Ina Garten

No Oil Spelt and Oat Flour Pancakes

No sugar or oil!!! Lecithin replaces oil!!

I make this recipe and keep the dry mix on hand for when I want to make pancakes in the morning. Having all of the dry ingredients pre-mixed cuts down on the time to cook in the morning before work.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite cookie from my childhood! It is perfect if you cannot eat a cookie made with eggs or milk because it uses neither of the two.

No-Sugar Granola

So yummy alone or on top of yogurt!

1/4 cup servings

No-Sugar and No-Oil Blueberry Oat Muffins

Just a hair over 80 calories and a mere 1 gram of fat per muffin!

No-Sugar and No-Oil Banana Oat Bread

Makes one loaf- about 14 slices (Less than 90 calories and only 1 gram of fat per slice)

No-Sugar and No-Oil Zucchini Bread

Just over 60 calories and less than a gram of fat for a slice of bread!

Au Gratin Potatoes

I use half mozzarella because it's lower in fat and lower in calories.

No-Sugar Waffles

These waffles require no sugar or sugar substitute!! The Lecithin allows you to use no oil which greatly reduces the calories and fat!!

Lasagna Rolls with Tofu


2 rolls equals 1 serving (my box of Lasagna noodles contains 19 pieces)

Incredible! (1 rating)
Blueberry topping

I put this on top of waffles, pancakes, or toast.

Paprika Tomato Cream Sauce

Great vegetarian dish!

Summer Tomato Pasta

This is a really good pasta dish, made lighter by the whole wheat pasta.

Pureed Lima Beans with Rosemary Tomato Broth

I categorized this as a vegetarian side dish because I allow chicken seasoning in my vegetarian diet.

If you do not want to use chicken seasoning, use nutritional yeast flakes (yellow in color, high in protein, and something I will substitute for chicken seasoning).
