Yummy Chinese Medley

I mix of vegetables, organic rice, and round steak that is better than take out

Just 2 ingredients make this soup healthy hearty, and even with a 2nd helping you can't go wrong.

Quick Beef and Vegetable Goulash with Rice

Quick Goulash that has lots of veggies with only 210 calories per cup.

Barbie's Chicken Specialty

We have a garden so I have an overabundance of zuchinni and squash at this time. I have started throwing it in things to help use it up and add nutrition without calories for my family. This is one of those recipes. It is VERY low in fat and high in nutrients. It has 121.8 calories per 1 cup serving. It also has only .7 grams of fat per 1 cup serving. This recipe makes 9 1 cup servings.

Deer and Lean Ground Beef Meatloaf

In our house we eat a lot of deer. For starters it has way less fat than other meats and it is free because my husband deer hunts. Many people don't like the flavor of deer meat but when you add it with some ground beef you cannot even tell the difference. I did add some vegetables to this but I am running low here at the house and have to run to town for more veggies later this evening.

Simple Salsa Chicken Slow Cooker

This is just a simple recipe to throw in the crockpot

Stuffed Bell Peppers 227 calories each!

I have a hard time getting my veggies in. You could add any veggies you had in the fridge to add nutrition (broccoli etc).

Dr Pepper BBQ Chicken

I ammended this recipe from Diet Cola chicken as I do not have any diet soda at the moment.

German Chocolate Cake made with unsweetened applesauce

Box mix made with unsweetened applesauce instead of oil

Banana Nut Muffins

This is from a Betty Crocker box mix. However, I used 2% milk, and instead of the oil I used 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce which shaved off 40 calories per muffin

Guick Hearty Chilli

This is a hearty chill. It has just 332 calories for a serving with 30 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber. It has 25 grams of carbs packed mostly due to the beans.

Chicken and Cabbage Stew

I had left over rotel chicken and boiled cabbage so I decided to try it in a stew. It is tasty. A little spicy. With 12 1 cup servings this stew has 141 calories and .6 grams of fat with 11 grams of protein and 25g of carbs. If you make the rotel chicken one night with boiled cabbage you can actually just throw those leftovers in the stew pot and add the potatoes and veggies. This is a hearty meal on those snow cold days...

Turkey Burgers

A spicy turkey burger thats easy to make

Italian Chicken

This is a 2 ingredient simple recipe

Barbie's Spicy Meatloaf

This is a meatloaf my mom made with a little kick. My family likes rotel in almost everything. If you want more of a kick get the hot rotel. A little less kick get the original or mild. I only use one egg in this recipe and it holds it together well. 176.8 calories per serving, 19g fiber, and only 7 grahams of fat....

Pepsi One Chicken

This is an odd recipe with a great flavor. It is a variation from a weight watchers recipe my mom has made.

Garlic Cod

This is a very low fat, tasty way to make cod.

Deviled Eggs

A simple deviled egg recipe.

Light Green Enchilada Pie

Rotel and green chillis are the base of this great Mexican Food. It can be made with a lesser fat cream of mushroom soup and with lesser amount of corn torillas to help save calories

Barbie's Easy Lunch Salad

I take this to work with me so I have a light lunch with very few calories that is very filling.

Barbie's Stuffed Bell Peppers

This is a classic comfort food. I use fat free cheese to make it lower in fat and use brown rice instead of white rice which comes in many recipes

Baked Pork Chops

Basic Pork Chops

Corn Salad

Another Version of mom's corn salad

Very Good (1 rating)
Homemade Mac N Cheese with Tuna

This is a simple mac and cheese recipe my mother used to make with a can of tuna added in for protein with small calorie addition. You can leave the rotel out if you choose to or place mild rotel in it. This is delicious. You can also leave the cream of mushroom soup out if you choose but I have found it gives the added feeling of "sticking to the ribs" so I don't feel hungry for awhile after eating it.

Barbie's Egg McMuffin

I make one single in the mornings for my Breakfast so the recipe is for one single muffin. It is a good source of protein and fills me up.

Barbie's Stew

This is a simple stew that my mother made when I was a child.

Mama's Sunday Roast

This is a roast I grew up eating on Sunday mornings at my mother's house after church.

Veggie Salad

This is a fresh salad with an array of colors and flavors

Corn Salad

This is seems to have a lot of fat due to the Avacado, however, it can be made without the avacado. It is light on the stomach and makes a great side dish.
