Recipes I've Shared:

Tapioca pudding with almond millk

Ok took my childhood fav and tried to lighten it up, This is for the pudding if you want the fluffy variety. Use 3 TBLSP granulated sugar and beat egg whites to a soft peak. Adds about 25 calories to the mix for 4 servings. Although the recipe calls for 6 servings I have made it for 4 at this time.

Baked Turkley Meatballs with Marinara Sauce

This is a great meatball recipe, you can always make them smaller or larger to suit your taste. As to seasonings, my suggestion is to play with that. I like Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes add zing.

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna with Broccolini

Found this recipe and love veggie dishes. I think you could add a light sausage for a meal also.

Zucchini Muffins

Found this recipe by CASEYNJASON for a Chocolate Zucchini muffin, I am not a big chocolate fan so made a couple changes for my taste. I will include the info for the chocolate variety also.

Zucchini Cornbread

The recipe came from my Grandmother, who got it from a neighbor. I have made a couple adjustments and you can make more like using egg beater or skim milk. Even with these adjustment its not low calorie about 150 per piece so you can cut it smaller if you wish. But this is a delicious side with chili or bean soup.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Another online find, I makd a couple changes mostly not making a bechemel sauce to thicken

Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Found this recipe online they did a creamy version but to save calories I made it without the bechemel sauce.

Moroccan Baked Chicken

Makes a single serving

Lowfat Pumpkin Pie Custard

Yummy pumpkin custard or better crustless pumpkin pie

Turkey Spaghetti with Zucchini Noodles

Using low sodium tomatoes or fresh will lover the sodium level. I also would not pre salt my noodles.

Zucchini Bread - NO Fat Added

I have substituted applesauce for oil.

Banana Nut Bread - NO Fat Added

I use applesauce for the fat in this recipe. Also splenda.

Turkey Zucchini Burgers

Friend made these delicious turkey Zucchini burgers, she used cumin and chili powder 1/2 tsp each. I liked mine with more the Italian flavor, both are great

Western Chili, Veggie

This is the best chili, I know veggie, but honestly it is. Spicy. Versilte use 1/2c and make some tasty nachos, or as a side with eggs. This makes 18 1 cup servings so I freeze most of the recipein single servings for a quick fix later.

Debbie's Stir Fry w/ Chicken

Lots of yummy veggies. Prep takes little more time, but can be done in advance, just store in containers by cooking start times. Can change out to your favorite veggies.

Deb's Navy Bean and Ham Soup - 1 cup

A crockpot meal. This is made with homemade stock with no salt added. I add a little salt in the cooking, but that is optional. If I need a taste of salt I sprinkle a little on my bowl but do not stir.

Red Velvert Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting- Light

I was looking for a red velvet cupcake recipe to have for Christmas dessert last year, and this one turned out delicious. The original recipe was not low fat, but I made a few changes, they are less calories. This year I tried to reduce the fat more by using applesauce but they didnt work. So I went back to the original idea of decreasing the sugar and lower fat cream cheese. Everyone raved and didnt know till later that they were lowfat treat. I hope you like them too. I think it would be very easy to make half the recipe.

Fluffy Tapioca Cream -Light Version

Just the good old fashion tapioca made by my mom and her's. I just used splenda and nonfat milk still that great taste. I used Kraft Minute Tapioca and followed the directions. There is also the pudding recipe were you dont have to beat the egg whites. This is an old fashioned comfort food slimmed down

Debbie's Brownie Cupcakes

Delicious brownies as cupcake size or you can make them as a mini just half the calories

Corn Muffins Modified

Found a good recipe in Better Homes and Garden Cookbook and made some modification.

Apple Crisp with nuts

I read this recipe made with other fruits, but I love apple so I modified it making it more what we like. Here is the result

Cornmeal Mountain Pancakes

This is an old family favorite, comes from my great grandmother, they were farm folk. I have only altered the fat a little, you can use corn oil or margarine. I am sure that you can use whole wheat or craked wheat flour, I haven ot tried those yet but probably will. Also Smuckers makes a Sugar-free Breakfast Syrup, it is thick and taste very good, very frw calories.

Vegetable soup with Lentils and Wild Rice

Simple soup recipe, very low sodium

Baked Peach Delight

I had found a really good recipe for paked peaches, but my hubby loves pecans and I wanted to make this for 4 and be 1 fruit. So I made a couple changes. We love this and its still not a great deal of calories

Very Good (1 rating)
No Fat Oven Fried Zucchini

Modified a recipe I found, removing all the fat. Its a nice little dish, can adjust the seasoning to taste

Italian Meatloaf

Very tasy meatloaf with an italian twist. By using Turkey sausage you both lower sodium and fat. I use a jelly roll pan instaed of loaf pan, to get more of the fat away from the meat
