Vegan White Bean Chowder

Some may argue that this isn't technically a "Chowder" since it doesn't have fat renderings or dairy.. However.. It's creamy and hearty, and the chowdah luvvahs in my house like it a lot. It's a Quick and Easy Weeknight dinner that is vegan, gluten free, dairy free and calorie conscience! (And the meat eaters can add some rotisserie chicken or crumbled bacon in their bowl if they want)

Fire Roasted Poblano and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Homemade roasted tomatillo salsa gives this dish a lot of flavor without adding extra calories or fat.

Cranberry macadamia protein bars

No bake breakfast kids will love

Quinoa Veggie Cakes

Makes a great veggie burger or just on it's own drizzled with a yogurt dill sauce

Detox Drink

Boosts energy, helps you feel full and cleans you out.

Veggie "Stramble"

Part stir-fry, part scramble, this dish packs in the fiber and protein. You can use soy sauce if you do not mind the extra sodium instead of the liquid aminos. Great post-workout meal.

Spicy tofu and potato filling for burritos

Even the anti-tofu members of my family liked this. If you cube up the potatoes and tofu small, you really get more potato texture than tofu.

Green Smoothie

Although high in calories, this nutrient packed smoothie brings alot to the table. I like to have one after workouts, and for when I need a boost. It really helps you feel balanced.

Roasted Stuffed Poblanos (

This is a healthy take on the Chile Relleno that I came up with. Instead of coating it any frying it, I stuffed it with veggies and a little ground turkey, topped it with some lowfat cheese and baked them. In order to keep them from falling apart, I put the stuffed chilies in a foil pouch and baked them. You can either eat them straight out of the pouch or, what I did was slid it out onto a whole wheat tortilla and ate it as a burrito. Yum!!

Healthy Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

This recipe is based on another Spark Users recipe, I just wanted to calculate the things I used instead of what the other recipe called for. So thank you for the inspiration!!

Mexican Confetti Salad

Simple to make. Tasty for a quick lunch, wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla, or toss in some cooked brown rice.

Pesto Roasted Red Potatoes

Tasty! I like the flavor of the red potatoes, especially when roasted. You can roast them until just soft, or longer to get more crispy ones, like I prefer!

Balsamic Glazed Cauliflower

The balsamic gets syrupy and sweet, a nice flavor on cauliflower, which doesn't have much flavor on it's own. Very pungent while cooking though!

Stuffed Cabbage Leaves with Dijon Tomato Sauce

Adding cheese to the filling and on top is very tasty, but will bring up the calorie count, fat, etc. I made some each way the other night, and found that the ones without the cheese were just as good!

Skinny Stuffed Bell Peppers

This recipe takes good old fashioned comfort food and makes it good for you! Make sure to pick large, round peppers for this. They are better for stuffing. You could also find 8 small round peppers. Add a salad, and you have a healthy, filling dinner!

Braised beef shortribs in roasted garlic sauce

These shortribs come out moist and tender.

My son who won't touch spinach with a ten foot pole loved this lasagna, in fact, he didn't even realize there was spinach in there!

Spicy Island Shrimp

This recipe was in a Taste of Home issue a few years back. I omitted the butter and used olive oil for a healthier version. It is so yummy, I have to share it! Pair it with some brown rice, and you have a great low fat high protein dinner!

Mango Salsa

Light and refreshing. Great with fish.
