    Enjoy a flavored coffee while you watch your weight. This mix is significantly cheaper than the equivalent ready-made product.

    Recipe #23776

    Well being that I don't like to drink calorie filled drinks (calories I'd much rather spend on food!) I always try to experiment with low calorie drinks. So one day I came up with this. Tastes great! Add more or less coffee or equal to taste but I find this to be optimal. Oh by the way the 4.5 calories is from the coffee mix.

    Recipe #36320

    For those interested in a low fat drink.

    Recipe #44989

    I love french onion soup, but I don't love all the calories... This is low and calories & tastes great!

    Recipe #217859

    This light cheese spread tastes similar to the expensive, higher-fat versions sold in grocery stores. Serve with raw vegetables or crackers.

    Recipe #81201

    This is a quick lunch or dinner. So easy to make and good for you too.

    Recipe #214732

    A great way to enjoy a favorite breakfast without the calories.

    Refried beans are typically made from pinto beans, but black beans work well, too. Add a dab of sour cream if you crave a little richness. Recipe courtesy of Gourmet Magazine.

    Low calorie and beautiful to look at in a long stemmed glass. Great for guests--even last minute.

    Recipe #20450

    Lighter version of Mom's hamburger gravy. Good old comfort food made lighter. Serve with toast or biscuits.

    Recipe #212883

    I like this recipe because it doesn't include any butter and still has a delicious rich taste. It is also easy since it is made on top of the stove. I modified the instructions after the first review to make them more clear. It is important to stir the pudding the whole time it is cooking.

    Recipe #103024

    I enjoy making biscuits on the weekend, but am reluctant to make them more often because of the high point value. With this recipe, I can make them anytime and not feel like I'm cheating on my diet.

    Recipe #52389

    A seafood restaurant favourite. I have modified the original recipe to meet my low sodium diet requirements. These are delicious - enjoy!

    Recipe #14510

    Because these doughnuts are baked, rather than fried, they're MUCH healthier and taste really good too. Freezing recommended

    Recipe #39396

    Quick and easy to make for lunch or dinner! My husband asked me to make him a tuna melt. I'd never eaten one (I don't like tuna except for grilled tuna steaks), let alone made one, so I tried this recipe from The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook. I've made this for him a few times now, and he says they're good! He's not big on English muffins so we normally use whole wheat toast instead.

    Got this from the daily email from HG. This looks really good. Saved here for safekeeping.

    Recipe #258126

    A tasty version of a high-fat favorite! Enjoy with whole wheat pasta for a healthy meal. Substitute vegetable bouillon grandules for a vegetarian dish.

    Recipe #149642

    I have absolutely no idea where this recipe came from. All I know it is GOOD! I usually make it with asparagus, although I've also used broccoli. My DH loves this soup!

    Recipe #101600

    Light, easy and delicious! Truly tastes gourmet, and no one ever notices that it's a healthier version. In some recipes the ladyfingers have to be split in half (messy and time consuming) - in this recipe the ladyfingers are used whole. Has less of that artificial taste then recipes with the artificial whipped topping. Also, this recipe has no egg, which when uncooked and at room temperature, can be unsafe. You can also completely or partially replace the sugar with Splenda or Equal if you like; if not use all sugar. You may want to use decaf. coffee if you are eating this as a night time dessert!
