    I chose Pine Nut Rice Pilaf (Pi´┐Żon Rice Pilaf) #202897 by Mikekey

    Instead of using rice, I used quinoa. I also halved the amount of oil in the pan, and the amount of pine nuts. I thought chicken broth would be healthier than the stock, but found that the chicken stock was actually 10g fat and 300mg sodium healthier icon_eek.gif

    My changes made the recipe healthier, although not by as much as I was expecting icon_smile.gif

    before calories: 717
    after calories: 502

    before carbs: 88g
    after carbs: 66g

    before fiber: 2.6g
    after fiber: 6.7g

    before fat: 23g
    after fat: 21g

    before protein: 17g
    after protein: 20g

    before sodium: 350mg
    after sodium: 349mg

    I know this isn't a cooking challenge, but I did make the recipe and really liked the pine nuts and spices in with the quinoa icon_smile.gif


    Paula, I think this was missed on page 5 icon_biggrin.gif Please adjust our points, Thanks.
