Recipes I've Shared:

Banana Bread (Gluten Free, Low Sugar, Vegan)

This is a no granulated sugar, vegan & gluten free recipe for banana bread. It's not quite as sweet as a desert bread, but makes a great breakfast side dish or afternoon snack.

Gluten & Dairy Free Low Fat French Toast

A gluten & dairy free low fat french toast alternative for stove top cooking.

Chicken Breast & Chick Peas

A modified version of the stuffings of pita pockets.

Ground Turkey Meatloaf w/ Mushrooms & Artichokes

Low Fat, Low Carb meatloaf with veggies

Baked Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

There are some recipes for this for grilling, but alas I don't have a grill, so this is a recipe for the chicken breast baked in the oven.

Very Good (1 rating)
Gluten & Dairy Free Pudding

Taken from the "Amazing Rice Pudding" recipe on SparkRecipes and converted to gluten and dairy free. Rather than rice, quinoa is used, and it makes a delicious, filling, and protein-packed breakfast or dessert.

Spicy Chicken Spinach Salad

Great if you have left over chicken from the night before or are looking for a simple, filling but healthy lunch. Recipe yields 2 servings for a side salad or 2 servings could be a full meal.

Gluten Free Herb Crusted Chicken & Spinach Salad

Gluten free herb crusted chicken baked in the oven over a balsamic spinach salad with bell peppers and tomatos

Almond Sauce Tofu w/ Eggplant & Spinach

This is pretty high calorie because of the amount of sauce and tofu in the recipe, but very high in protein. If looking to cut out calories, use less tofu and/or almond butter.

UltraMeal Freggie Smoothie

Using the Metagenics UltreaMeal powder really sweetens this smoothie and helps to make it super filling!

Whole Foods Baked Southwestern Tilapia

Pastrami Grilled Cheese

It's not super low in calorie, but if you were to switch out to a lower calorie bread, completely cut out the margarine and condiments, or choose a lower calorie cheese, you could probably cut 100-200 calories off of this meal.

Slow Cooker Chicken in Mandarin White Sauce with Benefiber

This concoction was put together on a Friday evening before grocery shopping. I wasn't sure if it was going to turn out to be edible, and it ended up being really tasty! It's hard for me to like chicken, but this was really filling and helped to meet all of my nutritional goals needed for the eveing.

Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken

Preferred method is on a BBQ/grill, instructions for oven-baked also given.

Stir Fry Tofu & Veggies with Peanut Sauce

Home made peanut sauce over stir fried veggies & tofu. Pretty high in sodium because of the home made sauce, but substitutes can be made.

Can substitute beef broth in soy sauce substitute for non-meat broth.
