Tomato Cucumber Salad

A quick throw together salad that tastes great and is a healthy alternative to other sides. Especially great during the summer.

Oreo Cream Pudding

My kids go INSANE for this recipe. It's a quick throw together that satisfies the sweet tooth. It's a little high in calories, but considering what goes into it, it's fantastically good. Great for get togethers, pot lucks, and work food days.

Rotini with Chicken Sausage Red Sauce

A quick dinner for the Italian food fix.

Baked Apple Turnovers

A tasty apple-pie feel to quench the sweetest of sweet tooths.

Hawaiian Turkey Burgers

The original recipe was taken from Taste of Home; however, I changed it up a little bit to lower the calories. I found that the bread was the key issue so the nutritional information is calculated for a single patty, no bread. Use whatever bread you like and just make sure you add it on to your calorie count.

Incredible! (7 ratings)
Lemon Garlic Fish Spread

This is a recipe for a spread that goes great on most fish, especially tilapia. The portion is very large so if you wanted to cook more fish and save on calories, you would feasibly spread it thinner on the fish.

Simple Fruit Salad

I know anyone can slice and dice up fruit to make a fruit salad. This is here for my own reference for my nutrition tracker.

Spicy Chicken in a Cream Sauce

Inspired from a Taste of Home "Diet Comfort Foods" cook book, I took one of their recipes and added a creamy sauce that works well with rice. Note: sodium could be cut drastically by using fresh salsa rather than something pre-made. My husband said it reminds him of an old special Taco Bell ran. I guess that's a good thing.

Italian Baked Tilapia

A quick and easy way to prepare tilapia, avoiding all those unwanted calories that come with deep frying.

Portabello Mushroom Pizzas

A quick and filling dinner with few calories and low sodium.

Pita Pizza - Cheese

Simple and takes away any pizza craving. Doll it up with your favorite pizza toppings, just make sure you adjust the calories to accommodate them!

Smoothie: Peach, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango

A simply delicious smoothie that's deliciously simple.

Smoothie: Pineapple Mango

A refreshing tropical smoothie with very few calories!

Zesty Turkey Sloppy Joe

Great flavor, a little zing!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

This chicken dish is geared to feed a whole family of 3-5 people. It's a great dish with rich flavors without all the fat.

Parmesan Rice

A deliciously simple way to jazz up rice for italian dishes.

Pork Chops with White Sauce and Onions

Simple white sauce made in kitchens everywhere - mostly done for my own tracking. Obviously this is overstating the calories simply because you cook the pork in sour cream and soup - you don't eat all the liquid the pork bakes in!

Guiltless Chicken Cordon Bleu

Weight-loss friendly version of a french classic. A little bit of prep goes into this dish, but the payoff is SO worth it!

This low-cal version makes it guiltless to have seconds!

Fried Corn and Onions

This may be two flavors you never thought would go together, but it'll blow you away with its simplicity and taste!
