Pad Thai Chicken Shirataki

If you've tried Shirataki noodles and thought they were funky, try them in this Pad Thai. Maybe it's the lime juice - no funkiness! Very filling, low in calories and deliciously satisfying. Adjust the chili sauce to your taste.

Five Alarm Chili : Beef, Turkey or Venison

As a good Texas girl, I never put beans in my chili, it was always made of beef and I surely did not serve it over spaghetti. Well, some things had to change to adapt to our healthy lifestyle. Nutrition content for this recipe includes pintos and black beans with 1# of 90/10 beef and 1# of 97/3 turkey. I use course grind beef when I can get it because it makes nice big chunks of beef in your chili. I use "no salt added" tomatoes and "low sodium" beans. The recipe calculator did not have an option for no salt crushed tomatoes. My calculation comes in at 175 g sodium. I make this with venison when hubby scores in deer season!

Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa

This recipe goes with my Fish Tacos recipe, but feel free to try it with homemade tortilla chips because it's delicious!

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Sauce

Low carb, low fat and super good! Don't forget to grab my recipe for Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa to finish off your Fish Taco with perfection.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Awesomely good. Breakfast, snack, dessert... take your pick. Now I get excited when my bananas are overripe.

Quinoa Snack Bars

Breakfast, snack or workout recovery bar! I adapted this recipe from a Plaeo blog. I subbed milk for the soy milk it called for and added the oats, fruit and nuts for taste and texture. Will continue tweaking this recipe, but needed to get the nutritional info in it. Lots of room to adapt this to personal taste.

Chicken, Sausage & Shrimp Gumbo

Serve in a bowl, over rice. Nutrition data does not include rice. I use sausage from Whole Foods, homemade chicken broth and canned tomatoes with no salt added. I do not add salt to my gumbo, but you should adjust to your own taste. Making the roux correctly is very important. It imparts flavor, thickness and color to the finished dish. My instructions are for a slow cooker method, but you can cook this on the stove in a large pot -on low heat for 2 hours.

Farro with Feta, Cucumber & Sun-dried Tomato

Try this instead of brown rice! Great side salad from skinnytaste.

Dirty Rice with Shrimp and Andouille

My version of Dirty Rice because I don't like livers and gizzards. This is really spicy so if you are sensitive, leave out the cayenne.

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes - LISAINMS

Amazingly delicious for 110 calories each! Photo shows cupcakes in progress.

Pancakes, Harvest Grain & Nut

Copycat recipe for IHOP's Harvest Grain & Nut Pancakes. So good!

Chicken Soup, Lisa's Homemade

A quick and easy good-for-you soup. This recipe uses my homemade chicken broth (from cooking the breasts), but you could easily use a packaged broth -choose fat-free and low sodium! I freeze this in individual containers for an easy lunch grab. This is a great basic recipe to expiriment with different vegetables, grains and beans.

Very Good (4 ratings)
Lowfat Blue Cheese Dressing

You won't miss the fat! Fresh, tangy and lower in sodium than most dressings. Makes 14 servings of 2 Tbsp.

Granola Bars with Cranberries & Almonds

Soft and chewy granola bars that can be altered with different fruits, chocolate chips and nuts. If you like a crunchy bar, cook at 325 temperature for 25 minutes instead.

No Pudge Brownie w/Protein

Adapted from the Copycat Homemade No Pudge recipe, which was good as it was, but I wanted to add protein for a little nutritional balance.

Caramel Glaze

NOT a low fat or low carb recipe! For glazing a cake or drizzling over something fabulous like No Pudge Brownies.

Curtis Stone's Vanilla Cupcakes

Less than 100 calories each with Raspberry Cream Frosting
