Lower Carb Mexican Stuffed Peppers

Made this recipe up for a nice light dinner. Leftovers make a great lunch.

Heidi Swanson's 'Broccoli Crunch'

This is another Heidi Swanson recipe. Can be made with or without the Tempeh, but it adds some protein. A bit high in fat, but all the good kinds. And oh so tasty.

Pumpkin Mushroom Lasagna (whole wheat)

I made this up one day with a selection of random ingredients and it turned out delicious if I do say so myself. I love pumpkin and I love lasagna but I couldn't find a good healthy-ish recipe (all the ones I found were covered in bechamel sauce!), so I made one up.

Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup (Heidi Swanson)

Another Heidi Swanson recipe from this big fan. It's really really easy (once the squash cutting is done) and the flavours are surprisingly complex. I used Heidi's original recipe for calorie calculations but you can lighten it up by using light coconut milk or just a bit less (I do this anyway, because I find the coconut flavour too strong otherwise) and skipping the butter. I also generally use butternut squash, but any winter squash works. Enjoy!

Heidi Swanson's Lemon Cucumber Tofu Salad

Haven't actually made this yet, but I will make it for dinner tonight. Another Heidi recipe from me for all other 101cookbooks or 'Super Natural Cooking' fans who spark.

Roasted Red Pepper Coconut Soup

This is based on the recipe from Molly Katzen's Moosewood restaurant. Really simple and delicious and filling enough for lunch or dinner when served with salad or bread. Enjoy!

Heidi Swanson's Carrot Cake

I'm not claiming responsibility for this recipe! Just entering it in so other fans of Heidi's (like I am) can have another recipe to track. Love Heidi Swanson!

Cabbage Kidney Bean Stew

I made this up one day when I was craving cabbage and had a bunch of kidney beans in the fridge that needed using. Canned kidney beans would work fine here if you're in a hurry.

Moroccan Carrot Salad

Got this from the New York Times Passover Cookbook, but it's great all the time!

Autumn Quinoa/Millet Bake

this is adapted from the recipe that Heidi Swanson posted on her website. It's not 'diet' but it is certainly healthy, delicious, and very filling as a main vegetarian dish.

Martha Stewart's Whole Wheat Walnut Raisin Biscotti

This is from Martha Stewart's 'Everyday' food magazine. The cookies are really really good. Very sweet, crunchy and satisfying, but pretty guilt free--no added fat, high in fiber...great with lowfat vanilla fro-yo or coffee.
