Liz's Pumpkin Muffins with Chocolate Chips/Chunks

Naturally high in vitamin A, pumpkin is a great treat in the fall in winter months. Though these muffins aren't exactly low in calories but they are fairly large and fill you up.

Prepare yourself to only get to try one or two if you live with others though - they will be gone before you know it!

Moroccan Vegetable Hot Pot

Recipe By: adapted from America’s Best Slow Cooker Recipes, Donna-Marie Pye
Serving Size: 14 half-cup servings

Pistachio Bread

Low cal, low sugar pistachio mini cupcakes

Mock Wonton Soup

No wontons in this but I swear it tastes just like the best Wonton Soup I'e ever had. Super low in calories, this is the perfect start to any Asian inspired meal.

RAW Rosemary Breadsticks (no nuts)

Raw Rosemary bread using sprouted wheat berries and no nuts.

Super Low Cal Spicy Butternut Squash (or Pumpkin) Soup

Vegan butternut squash soup. Easy to make and super low cal. Try using pumpkin instead of squash during the holidays.

This makes a large batch that can be frozen. Feel free to half or third the recipe.

Little Bran Muffins (vegan)

Little vegan bran muffins using a regular muffin pan - under 60 cals each.

These are not sweet and are really good for you. If you would like a sweeter muffin, consider adding dates instead of raisins or adding your favorite sweetener (these will change the nutrition information).

Incredible! (1 rating)
RAW Butternut Squash Cookies

Raw cookies that do not use nuts. Revised from recipe found in the Raw Foodies group.

Veggie Loaded Quiche

Based on JENNLOVE's "Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche," this uses more veggies, turkey bacon and no actual eggs (just egg substitute).

OMG Low-Cal Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce

Inspired by Hungry Girl's Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce, this is creamy and oh-so-good. It tastes sinful and just like the real thing - with a fraction of the calories. Try it on pasta, couscous, shredded zucchini "noodles" or chicken breast.

Green Smoothy

Green juice variation done in blender.

Penni's Rawkin' Raw Chili

raw-vs-cooked-chili-night.html - FANTASTIC!

Vegan Pancakes

Carrot Pulp Crackers RAW

Raw (dehydrated) carrot pulp crackers from Shannon Marie at We Like it Raw.

This is just for the "Cheesy" Crackers

Bran Muffins

These great bran muffins are a favorite of mine. With a hint of banana and soft raisins, they make a great treat. Try warmed in the microwave with I Can't Believe It's No Butter Spray for a perfect breakfast or snack. No white sugar or eggs and plenty of room for modifications.

Modified Low-Calorie Peanut Butter Topping

Get all that sweet & salty peanut butter flavor in a low calorie spread.

Fruit and Nut Torte with Lemon "Frosting"

Raw food, chewy, sweet and packed full of good stuff. Think raw foods "power bar."

This makes a perfect snack for pre or post work-out or even a filling breakfast. Serve as a dessert as well!

Hungry Girl Similar Fettucini

Cheesey fettucini noodles for just over 300 cals!

This is so good, tastes just like fettucini and my family loves it!
