    My hubby is now following a vegan diet, so I created this recipe for his main dish. You can use a prepared vegan refried beans (Fig Food Co. Organic Refried Beans work fine) or quickly make your own by food processing black beans, garlic and oil and cooking them on the stove.

    Recipe #474244

    I adapted this from Dancer's Curried Chicken and Couscous for nights when I'm not in the mood for rice or pasta, and need a quick non-meat main dish to go on the table. I use the Whole Foods frozen peas and carrots (the carrots are shredded, not coined, take the same time to cook as the peas). I store the whole wheat couscous in the freezer once it’s opened to keep it from getting stale. By stir frying the tofu, it changes it to a firmer, chewier, more meat-like texture. To make it completely vegan, vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.

    Recipe #456591

    A simple, tasty, family meal -- a once a month treat since kids shouldn't have tuna too often. This recipe is lower in fat and higher in tuna then others I have seen. Makes good leftovers, each stored in their own packet, easy to reheat in toaster oven.

    Recipe #417674

    A healthy turkey chili recipe. Very easy to make (as long as you have a can opener) and it is easy to keep the ingredients on hand. I use as many 'no-salt-added items as I can find) Whenever ground dark-meat turkey goes on sale I buy a bunch of one pound packages to freeze away. Serve this with crackers or tortilla chips.

    Recipe #345640

    An easy-to-make side dish that goes very well with chicken. I adapted this from Dancer's Curried Chicken and Couscous (which is a main dish) for nights when I'm not in the mood for rice or pasta, but need a whole grain and another veggie dish to go on the table. I use the Whole Foods frozen peas and carrots (the carrots are shredded, not coined). Sometimes I add curry and cumin to the broth before bringing it to a boil.

    Recipe #328440

    A good weekday chicken dish that takes under an hour to make (as long as you don't have to run to the store for leeks!). I adapted this recipe from the October 2008 issue of Eating Well magazine, so it's healthy as well as tasty. My 4 year old daughter told me "make this every night", so it was a big hit! The original recipe was made with skinless, boneless, trimmed chicken thighs and currant jelly -- I substituted skinless, boneless chicken breast and, as I couldn't find currant jelly, canned cranberry sauce (like for Thanksgiving). The recipe also called for fresh, peeled and diced pear, but Whole Foods has canned Bartlett pears in pear juice which saved me lots of time. I served this with my Couscous with Peas and Carrots and steamed broccoli.

    Recipe #328337

    This dish is super tasty and reasonably simple to prepare. Because I cook for a multi-generational household (ages range from 3 y/o to 93 y/o) I have to make a number of tweaks to accommodate everyone's needs. As a result, recipes often end up lower salt, lower fat, higher fiber and some of the spicier spices get reduced. Chef 4TeenSon’s Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken) was the inspiration for this dish, but I wanted to get the nutrition facts for my altered version, so that is why I’m posting it instead of just making notes. I actually grabbed the wrong spice bottle (cinnamon sugar) instead of the cinnamon bottle, but we decided we liked this dish even better with that bit of sweetness. I use Whole Foods frozen cooked brown rice as it cooks up in a matter of minutes in the microwave. Their frozen Jasmine rice is wonderful too. You can cook some veggies while the chicken is simmering. I usually steam some whole leaf spinach and zap some frozen peas & carrots for our sides. This dish smells glorious when cooking and tastes just as good!

    Recipe #235078

    This corn chowder can be a side dish or serve as a main meal. It is tasty and filling with 'hidden protein' (beans) that you'll never even notice. The recipe originally came from Nutrition Action and I've made a few tweaks. The evaporated milk makes the chowder taste much richer. I like to serve this crumbled Morning Star Breakfast Strips (fake bacon) that people can sprinkle on top of their chowder and crusty bread. Super healthy, super low fat and pretty low salt (especially for soup)!

    Recipe #227627

    This omlette is packed with healthy stuff, but is delicious and worth the time. Our weekend tradition is that one day, I make 'Momlettes' and the other, dh makes 'Mancakes' (fruit pancakes). The kids always enjoy their fancy weekend breakfasts. I use 'Morningstar Farms® Veggie Breakfast Bacon Strips' (we call it Facon) but if you want to have the fat and calories, you could use regular bacon. This recipe makes two really big Momlettes which can either be split (if for breakfast) or, if eaten whole may be brunch.

    Recipe #223010

    My family absolutely loves quiche, but I didn't make it frequently due to the hydrogenated oils from the pie crust and the extra calories from the heavy cream. It took me several years to perfect this recipe to make it low fat while maintaining the richness and flavor. The idea of using potato for the crust came from Elizabeth's O'Brien Quiche recipe (thank you Elizabeth!) and this was the final substitution I needed for honing this recipe. Because I cram so much into this deep dish quiche, it is very filling. I like to serve sliced melon (water- or cantelope) for dessert.

    Recipe #169635

    This Tetrazini is very good -- it does not taste like a lower fat version at all. I love chicken tetrazini, but almost all the versions I've seen are made with lots of butter (and therefore saturated fat), so I created this healthy version. I don't care for mushrooms, so I don't use them, but I will list them as an optional ingredient. This recipe makes alot -- I usually use two casserole dishes.

    Recipe #166849

    This is a tasty and satisfying dish and looks very nice on the plate. Kind of like chicken that comes with its own Italian-seasoned stuffing. The original recipe came from, but I made a few changes to lessen fat, sodium and eliminate MSG (believe it or not, a number of stuffing mixes and salad dressings have MSG).

    Recipe #163947

    This is a dish my mom has been making forever. It is very tasty and appeals to all. We only serve this dish occasionally as it is pretty high salt -- although it is probably lower in sodium than anything you would get at a Chinese restaurant. You should adjust the garlic and ginger to your taste as my mom has never measured how much she uses. We usually serve this with brown rice and a couple of vegetables (a green and an orange so that the table is aesthetically pleasing).

    Recipe #162455

    My family loves this dish which tastes especially good as left-overs. This is the perfect middle of the week meal when you don't want the pressure of coming up with several dishes to serve. It's a very healthy meal -- I recommend using either whole wheat or PLUS pasta and 'no salt added' diced tomatoes and then seasoning the ground beef with salt and pepper. Hint: If you're really in a rush and need to save time, use powdered garlic instead of fresh; use 1 can stewed tomatoes in place of 1 can diced tomatoes and the chopped onions; and either omit the carrots or use the pre-shredded carrots you can find in the produce section at larger grocery stores.

    Recipe #159989

    This recipe was printed in Boston Globe's 'Ask the Chef' column this week. The recipe originates from Rino's Place in East Boston. It's pretty tasty (even my 9 year old devoured it) and gave me an excuse to try a new veggie -- broccoli rabe. I'm posting the recipe the way I made it tonight, but if you want to try the Rino's Place, full calorie version, use 5/8 C of oil instead of 1/3 C and add 4 tablespoons of butter at the same time as the wine. I made this with whole wheat fusilli -- its a bit heavier and a little nuttier tasting than regular fusilli, and offers your family a serving of whole grains. I think this dish would go well as a dish to pass or as a dish to serve for company.

    Recipe #147792

    My family loves this dish and the presentation is beautiful, but it isn't hard to prepare. I recommend using Orecchiette pasta as it is the perfect shape/size/flavor to compliment the shrimp and soak up the sauces. This recipe was adapted from a dish prepared at the HEB (Texas grocery store). They have a chef that prepares simple fresh food using expensive pre-prepared sauces. So, instead of paying $9.00 for a small jar of garlic-olive oil dipping sauce, I figured out how to make my own and I like it even better as I thought their version was too oily and not flavorful enough. It also tastes good reheated the next day for lunch (and you can really impress your coworkers as it looks/smells/tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant). I like to serve this dish with steamed broccoli and baby carrots for a very colorful plate.

    Recipe #119529

    This is kind of a fancy (French?) spin on the traditional spinach phyllo pie (spanikopita). I found the general recipe in the Whole Foods 'What's Cooking' flyer, but then altered it a bit. The original recipe calls for using a frozen puff pastry, but I used phyllo sheets instead, as that is easier (and cheaper, at least when you buy organic). The recipe calls for French Aged Comte' cheese. After tasting Comte' at the cheese counter, I didn't know of an alternative (it is really tasty!) so that's what I used. My hubby and I really enjoyed this one, although it was a bit sophisticated for my 8 y/o daughter. She enjoyed eating the crispy phyllo crust, but left about half of the filling on her plate.

    Recipe #113441

    Now that the FDA is recommending we eat 2 cups of fruit every day, this is an easy and tasty way to get most of the requirement met! Kefir is cultured lowfat milk (similar to yogurt) but is lower in sugar and higher in protein than either skim milk or yogurt. Kefir can usually be found in most healthy grocery stores or in organic sections of grocery stores. It's also pourable and easier to add than yogurt. You can substitute plain yogurt for the Kefir and sugar for the Splenda. You may also use fresh berries, but frozen fruit is generally cheaper and makes the smoothie more icy and like a shake. My kids (1 and 8) and hubby love this smoothie!
