Berry-Spinach-Carrot-Flax-Almond Milk Smoothie (Vegan)

Makes a pretty dark purple shake while still packing in some greens.

Nature's Way Rice a Roni with Beef and Peas

There are no weird chemicals in this type of Rice a Roni; I was happy to find it as an alternative to hamburger helper on busy/lasy nights. Try it using ground turkey or ground chicken.

From Scratch Salsa Verde Beef Enchilada Casserole

Want a mexican food dinner without the added salt and excessive fat? Try this enchillada recipe. The salsa is made from scratch.

Coco Cinnamon Peppermint Ricotta

This is a low carb low sugar (diabetic friendly) dessert. It's a good way to satisfy a craving for sweets or chocolate without having a lot of sugars. All sugars and carbs in this recipe are naturally present in the cheese.

It is great to eat as is with a spoon. But it could also be a great pie filling for a no bake pie; to keep it low carb make a crust using crushed nuts.

Make note of the serving's just for 1/4 cup since that is the serving size for ricotta.

Avocado-Banana-Apple Smoothie

This may not be a very low cal breakfast but it is rich in potassium (just under half the daily requirements) and other essential nutrients. For lower calories cut the serving size in half.

Btw, you can't taste the spinach in this recipe so don't be afraid to add it.

Breakfast Turkey-Sausage Bacon Casserole

Make this at the beginning of the week.. You can wrap up single servings and freeze to create a home made quick microwave breakfast.

Chicken-Sausage & Spinach Quiche

My husband needed something to eat for breakfast so I came up with this. It would probably be better if you added in some lightly caramelized sauteed onions but he doesn't like onions.

Crab-Spinach Quiche

I just threw this together using stuff I had on hand.

Leftover Remix: Italian Chicken Bake

An easy quick recipe for leftover chicken breast that can be made with ingredients found in most kitchens.

To make it lighter use 2% cheese or cut amount of cheese in half, find reduced sodium alternatives to sauce and ketchup, and use spray oil instead of regular olive oil.

Low Fat Potato Salad for 2

If you have more people or want leftover just keep doubling the recipe; potato salads aren't an exact science.

Savory Steak and Potatoes

Leftover steak mixed with a saute of potatoes, bacon, onion and jalapenos.
