Kathy's Hummus

made in food processor, to reduce sodium, reduce fat. Diabetic friendly.

Garden Pasta Salad for a Crowd ( can be halved or quartered)

Summer pasta salad that is more veggies than pasta. Very colorful and dressing can be changed up for different flavors. The Marzetti Sweet Vadalia Onion Dressing is no low fat, but tastes wonderful. Not strong of onion. This would be much lower in calorie if made with a light version of any commercial dressing. I do not recommend fat free, as they do not stick to the veggies and pasta as well.

Peach Banana Ice Cream - Cuisinart

Three small frozen banana, broken into chunks before freezing.
Three cups of sliced frozen unsweetened peaches broken apart if they have frozen together.
Place these two ingredients in Cuisinart or very strong blender. Pulse until mostly smooth mush forms.
Add 1-1/2 cups of plain fat free yogurt, 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract, and 1/2 tsp of powdered ginger spice.
Pulse until uniform color. This made 7 cups or 14 1/2 cup servings. I froze 10 - 1/2 cup freezer pops, and 2 -- 8 oz Ball Freezer containers. Each half cup was 51.4 calories, and the one cup containers were 102.8 calories. A real bargain, and very healthy.

Asian Orange Ginger Shrimp and Vegetables

We love eating Chinese style dinners, but going out to a Chinese Restaurant gets us too much sodium and MSG. So we got creative. With lots of vegetables, reduced sodium sauces, and shrimp, we created a terrific low fat, high fiber dinner that was easy to make and easy to eat.

Healthy Ham and Bean Soup

This is a slimmed down, reduced sodium version of traditional ham and bean soup.

Chicken Pepper Pot with Potatoes

I created this recipe for the Take Back the Value Meal Day in 2011. Idea was to create recipes for under $5 per serving.

Healthy Fruit and Nut Snack Bars

More nutritious than a cookie for about the same amount of calories. Great for school lunchboxes and after workout snack.

Pizza for one, vegeterian

Quick and easy, pizza for one with lots of veggies. YOu could add other fresh veggies of your choice, such as thin sliced green onions or scallions, thin sliced ripe tomatoes in place of sauce, added herbs. I left off black olives due to sodium.

Very Veggie Pasta Salad

Lite, Fresh and Crunchy. Made this for a church social dinner in late June. It made about 13 cups, so each serving was about 1-1/3 cup. I did not actually use lasagna noodles but I could not find dry tri-color pasta as a listed ingredient. It was well received by adults and children alike.

Salmon Brown Rice Casserole

Quick warm one dish meal. It is economical, satisfying, and attractive. Including salmon in your meals regularly gives a boost to Omega-3 fatty acids,
