You can sub any sugar free peppermints for the Dr. Johns.

Low Carb Pasta Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette (Great Low Carb Bread Co. Orzo)

Who says you can't have a low carb pasta salad! Only 8 net carbs per half cup serving!!

I will be doing another recipe with a totally keto pasta and crumbled feta instead of mozzarella but you can use either cheese!

Keto Orange Cream Cookies with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Modified from a few other keto cookies to make orange.

Carbquik Coconut Mini-Muffins

Modified for low carb from Baking Bites

My tweaks: I switched the flour, baking soda and baking powder for Carbquik to lower the carbs and increase the fiber, vegetable oil for coconut oil, erythritol for the sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tsp coconut extract to bump up the coconut flavor. Yum!!

Chicken and Pasta with Spicy Asian Peanut Sauce

One of my favorite Lean Cuisine meals is the Chicken with Peanut Sauce. The sodium is high so I decided to try my hand at making my own. I added some Sriracha for extra kick. Pretty yummy!!

Chicken with Linguine in Lemon Cream Sauce (Sandra Lee)

Sandra Lee made this "semi-homemade" recipe in pastry shells as an appetizer. It looked so awesome I turned it into a meal by adding some asparagus spears and cubed chicken breasts. I also used a light Alfredo sauce to cut the fat and calories. A totally filling meal under 500 calories.

Stone Wave Baked Apple Crisp

Great recipe from the Stove Wave recipe book. This little thing is a great tool for quick meals!

Spicy Peanut Glaze

This sauce goes great with chicken and fish - especially good with grilled salmon. I also mix this with a 1/4 cup cooked pasta, some grilled chicken strips and sugar snap peas for an awesome lunch! Calories and fat are cut significantly by using PB2 powdered peanut butter. And it is JUST as yummy!

Lemon-Rosemary Chicken Breasts

Found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website. I LOVE lemon and rosemary is my favorite herb. Couldn't go wrong with this combination!

Chicken raisin pear walnut salad

A light lunch inspired by another SparkPeople member. Added a couple extra ingredients for a yummy and healthy lunch.

Grilled Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

From Betty Crocker....yummy! I serve with grilled red potatoes (with the same spices/lemon juice and a touch of tomato sauce) and a frozen mixed veggie.

Grilled Red Potatoes

These go great with the Mediterranean Turkey burgers and they're easy to make on the grill or in the broiler. You can lower the sodium by using a good grey sea salt (Celtic Grey is lower in sodium) instead of table salt. You can also add lots more flavor with some additional herbs. I chop some basil, rosemary, sage, whatever I can clip from my herb garden.

Lavender Pear Martini

I found the company that makes the pyramid shaped lavender tea bags they use in Ruby Tuesdays for this drink so now I can make them at home for a fraction of the cost!

Cel's Caprese Salad

Slightly modified from the recipe on the back of Sorrento's fresh mozzarella package.

Chicken and Zucchini Marinara

This has been a family favorite for years! But I've modified it a bit to lower the fat and calories. I used Ragu Light Tomato & Basil instead of marinara and you can lower the fat and calories even further by using part skim mozzarella.

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

same as ELAINEHN but using yogurt and milk instead of cottage cheese and 2 servings instead of 4. Added lite maple syrup too.

Pina Colada Coconut Flounder

Slightly different take on the usual coconut flounder, the flavors from the Pina Colada mix kick it up a notch!

Fluffy Meatballs

Use your favorite tomato sauce to cook these melt-in-your-mouth meatballs!

Rosemary Garlic Brown Rice

Modified ANYANA's recipe for less Parmesan and lighter broth to cut calories and fat.

Basil Tomato Chicken Skillet

This is from the Better Homes & Gardens Eat Well Lose Weight cookbook. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, added onion, spaghetti, and increased the chicken (my husband will never agree that four oz is a serving!)


A slight variation on my husband's old family recipe.

My Homemade Taco Seasoning (Low Sodium)

Same ingredients as the packets but without the massive amounts of sodium! Makes 4 servings of 2 tablespoons each.

Asian Peanut Barbecue Glaze

This is great on salmon or chicken or mixed with some spaghetti and veggies like steamed broccoli and edamame. You can substitute apple cider vinegar for the rice vinegar. And the PB2 cuts the calories by more than half!

Pasta with ground turkey and tomatoes

Super quick and filling. You can add additional veggies and switch to whole wheat pasta.

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

I combined two other members' recipes, used turkey instead of chicken, and a basil/tomato feta instead of plain. My husband doesn't ask for beef burgers anymore!

Flounder Filet Stuffed with Spinach and Feta

This came from RecipeZaar; the only change I made was in using fresh spinach instead of frozen and I used tomato and basil feta instead of plain. It made it sooooo tasty! Next I'm going to try this stuffing in chicken cutlets. Great served with Lemon Garlic Spinach and a brown rice pilaf with raisins.
