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)
Homemade roasted tomatillo salsa gives this dish a lot of flavor without adding extra calories or fat.
No bake breakfast kids will love
Makes a great veggie burger or just on it's own drizzled with a yogurt dill sauce
Boosts energy, helps you feel full and cleans you out.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!!
Lighted up a bit
Simple to make. Tasty for a quick lunch, wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla, or toss in some cooked brown rice.
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!
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!
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!
Great for cold nights! This "stew" will warm you up from the inside out!
Goes nicely with some grilled fish for a light summer dinner.
The best medecine when you're sick is mom's homemade chicken soup.
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!
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!
Hearty chili with lots of protein and fiber.
Makes 3 large crusts or 6 individual ones
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!
Light and refreshing. Great with fish.
Banana bread, madeover with oat bran and love!
Tastes just as good as the full fat kind, only better for your waistline!
