A healthy and versatile sauce from the food/fitness/life blog, Heather Eats Almond Butter http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/ Use this as a sauce, a dip, a topping... a sandwich spread, in yogurt or oatmeal, over ice cream, or with fruits and vegetables! This could also be made with peanut butter.
From Martha Stewarts Body+Soul magazine. "Choose Italian-style chicken sausage, either sweet or hot, for this recipe. If the sausage is pre-cooked, chop it into bit sized bits and saute to brown it." I plan to skip the oil and probably use canned artichoke hearts.
From Martha Stewart Living. "Fresh carrot juice makes this dressing a good source of beta-carotene, which protects eye health and night vision. Tofu gives it a silken consistency." Practically fat free! I would probably sweeten it with some sugar substitute. Posted for safe keeping.
This "Healthy in a Hurry" recipe came from Good Housekeeping magazine, September 2008. "Appealingly mild and lean, tilapia still has plenty of heart-healthy omega-3 fats. (Bonus: It is one of the least mercury-laden fish, and is also low in sodium.) Green beans and mushrooms deliver fiber and potassium, while crunchy almonds boast antioxidants."
I'd probably skip the oil and take my fats from extra almonds.
I found this in the March 2009 issue of Family Circle magazine. I used a drained can of fire roasted tomatoes in place of the plum tomatoes, a bit of salt, and I added a few more chipotle peppers when I made it.
From a can of "Fanci Food Premium Gourmet Artichoke Hearts." I used fat-free mayo and reduced fat cheese, and I added fresh mushrooms, garlic, thyme, and a dash of Old Bay. Make it your own! This is easy, elegant, versatile, and healthy!
This is from a package of Mori-Nu Silken Lite Tofu, posted as written. When I made this, I used regular parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and lots more than called for. I used whole wheat lasagna noodles, and I also found that extra sauce was needed, in my opinion. Carnivore hubby liked it!
Using tofu Shirataki noodles and non-fat ingredients, this comes together fast for an elegant dish that is extra light on the waistline but full on flavor! Chopped asparagus would work lovely in place of the peas as well here. Shirataki noodles add only 40 calories to the nutrition count as posted by 'Zaar.
