Recipes I've Shared:

No bake granola bars

Though they're not super low in calories, they are pack with nutrition. :)

Guiltless Cream of Broccoli

I LOVE cream of broccoli soup, but most recipes call for butter and cream. My waist doesn't like that. ;) The low calorie recipes online were made with milk and really sounded like they'd be really runny. I want THICK and creamy! So, I dug through my cupboard and found these ingredients and decided to throw them together. The secret weapon in this is the cream of celery soup. :)

Couscous and Tomatoes

I just threw this together one day when I got home really late and needed some dinner. I ate the entire pot as a meal, but it would probably be best in servings as a side dish. :P

Italian style tofu and rice, for two

I just made this today with some of the food I had on hand in the fridge. It's a cold day and I was craving something warm. :)

Zucchini Pizza

I decided to add zucchini as a filler in this pizza's crust, so you get a little more pizza without extra calories. :)

I won't lie, this isn't going to take the place of that yummy, greasy take out pizza, but it's a healthier way to kick the craving. :)

Zucchini Chicken Couscous

I found this recipe in a cookbook, and I had to share it!! :)

Beef and Veggie Shepard's Pie (for 1 or 2)

This is another meal that I make when my husband is out of town. I was craving Shepard's Pie one night and I wanted something filling but not SUPER high in calories. I grabbed some ground beef and pulled out some veggies I had in the fridge. Of course, you could use any veggies you had on hand, but this is what I had.

Crock pot Split Pea Soup

This is another of the dishes I make when my husband is away. I usually half it, but it freezes well, too.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Salsa Chicken Dinner for Two (crock pot)

My husband works out of town alot, so I make this often. I just cut the recipe in half to make enough for one. Or I'll make the whole recipe and have the leftovers the next day.

This recipe can be easily multiplied to make enough for an entire family.

Cream Cheese Dip

So easy. 2 ingredients. I practically live off of this stuff when my husband is out of town. lol...

Quinoa and Oat Porridge

I found this recipe online, though I altered it just a tad. I have the nutrition as 1 serving, but it could be split into 2 small servings.

The original calls for steel cut oats, but rolled oats makes it a quicker breakfast, as well as being something that's more likely to be in the cupboard. :)

Swiss Steak (Slow Cooker)

Only 3 ingredients, and about 5 minutes prep!! Perfect for my husbands "meat and potatoes" fix. :P

I adjusted the recipe to lower the fat and calories.

Velveeta Stove Top Casserole

This is a recipe I adapted from a Kraft Food's recipe. It passed my husband's picky taste test, so it must be good.

Simple fruit salad

I made this the other day for a big family function, and there wasn't a drop left in the bowl after dinner. :) Big success...

Fat Free Rice Pudding

I found a recipe online for rice pudding, and I figured it could easily be altered to be more health conscious. :) No fat, and 50 calories a serving.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

This is my sister-in-law's recipe, that I changed to make more low fat. :) It's my husband's all time favorite meal.

Graham Cracker Sandwich Cookies

SO easy!! My grandma always made these with leftover icing, after baking cakes. I didn't make the icing with shortening or butter, as my grandma did, to save fat. :)

Chicken Croquettes

Traditionally, croquettes are fried, but to save fat and calories, I choose to bake/broil them. :)

Crock Pot Creamy Chicken, over pasta

I altered this from a kraft foods recipe, to make it low fat. :)

Low Fat Sour Cream and Garlic Potatoes

This is a favorite, in my family. My husband is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, and this hits the spot for him.

Simple Sloppy Joes

Growing up, we ate these at every family function. I love them! :D

Porcupine Meat Balls

These are tasty little meatballs, made with ground beef, rice and brown gravy...

When I was a kid, I always loved the days my mom made porcupine balls for dinner.

Flax Seed Bread (Bread Machine)

I love, love, love this bread! Unfortunately, it's not the lowest in fat, since it's full of flax seed. But you do get the benefits of eating the flax seed, and it really is delicious!

Cooking time really depends on your bread machine, mine takes 3 hours.

Easy, Creamy Beef Stroganoff

This is a recipe that my mom always made while I was growing up. It's become one of my favorite comfort foods.

Sorry Mom! I changed the recipe a little with low fat cream of mushroom and reduced fat sour cream.

This recipe comes out pretty thick, so feel free to add some milk if you'd like.

Banana Oatmeal Waffles

This is a recipe I found online, and it was so good and SO easy I had to share it. Who would have though gluten free waffles could be so good? :)

Crunchy, low-fat, no-bake cookies

Okay, they're not the no-bake cookies we're all used to, but when you have a sweet tooth that just won't go away, these are a helpful alternative.

Great to make with kids!

Can also be made without powdered sugar, if you're worried about the mess.

I like to keep mine in the fridge...

Rice and Beans Wrap

When my husband is out of town on business, I try to come up with extremely simple things to make myself for dinner. This is one of them.

These taste really good with some cheese in them as well, but it does add extra fat.
