Potato Crust Vegetable Pizza (Better Homes & Gardens)

I found this Better Homes and Gardens recipe online and posted it here because they did not list the nutrition information. Here's the link:
Here's what BH&G had to say:
"This vegetarian entree is a great option for veggie-lovers. Shredded potatoes and onions make a crispy, great-tasting crust, while sauteed sweet peppers, zucchini, squash, and garlic add plenty of flavor. The pizza is topped off with Italian delicacies like goat cheese, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil."

Berry Smash Muffins

This is very delicious and easy; my 9-year-old did everything but the baking! The school's nutritionist sent home this recipe and my kids were really excited to try it out. This recipe's calories, sugar and fat content could all be lowered with a few adjustments. I wanted to track it as written so here's the recipe - enjoy!

Soy Good Chocolate Banana Strawberry Smoothie

This is a thick, creamy treat that often takes the place of ice cream at my house. Substitute various kinds of fruit, yogurt and/or soymilk flavors and you can have many different smoothies, just be sure that at least 1 cup of the fruit is frozen for best results. This recipe is soy healthy for you! LOL

Tofu Parmigiana (adapted from's recipe)

I adapted this recipe from one I found on - this is their description:
Instead of having a greasy, battered coating, the tofu "steaks" in our revamped Parmigiana are breaded and lightly pan-fried in just a small amount of oil, then topped with part-skim mozzarella, fresh basil, and your favorite maranara sauce. This Italian classic will please even those who are tofu-phobic!

Southern Corn Bread (adapted from Joy of Cooking, 1997 edition)

This is quick, full of whole grains and goes great with chili or soup! I copied this recipe from my cook book (with a few alterations) so I could list it on my food log. Enjoy!

Lion's Head Soup

SOURCE: Buster's Friend

Ahhh, when the weather turns cold & damp, this is the stew to warm your bones. Adapted from a recipe in the Miami Herald. Serve with aromatic jasmine rice & garnish bowls with minced cilantro just before serving.

This is a great recipe and I needed the nutrition info for it. Then I saw the calories (ouch!) and made a few changes, substituting lean ground turkey for pork and canola oil for the peanut oil. Happy Eating!

Stevia Sweet & Sour Pork

Asian cuisine that will leave you satisfied without making you feel guilty, yum! This recipe can easily be cut in half but I like recipes that you can cook once and eat twice. Boneless, skinless chicken breast makes a tasty, lower calorie substitute for the pork.

Stevia Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

A healthy snack or breakfast food that has 3.8g fiber per serving, only 3.4 g of sugar. It tastes so delicious, you won't even know how good it is for you!

To decrease calories you could substitute applesauce for some or all of the canola oil, just be sure to use non-stick spray inside your paper muffin liners. The egg could also be replaced with two egg whites. I made this for my son's birthday and was serving it to other people's kids, so I didn't make any lower fat substitutions . There's no need to tell them it's healthy if they can't taste the difference! ;)

Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole

A quicker and healthier recipe that still feels like comfort food. This goes great with a spinach salad dressed with balsamic viniagrette.
