Bow Ties with Tomatoes, Herbs, and Lemons: This is a wonderfully refreshing summer pasta!

Curried Sweet-Potato and Lentil Soup: This hearty lentil soup has a delightful sweet and spicy combination. The sweet potatoes are a fantastic addition to this soup!

Balsamic Chicken Italiano: I was in the mood for something with vinegar and came up with this balsamic chicken recipe. I am actually serving it with buttered brown rice.

Dilled Salmon Skillet Dinner: Salmon is higher in fat than other fish, but it’s good fat and omega-3 fatty acids that help fight cardiovascular disease.

Ziti with Chestnuts and Mushrooms: The chestnuts give this pasta dish an amazing flavor!

Southwestern Sirloin with Roasted Broccoli: This dish is perfect if you're cooking for just yourself. Plus, the broccoli and salsa make it a healthy choice!

Sweet Summer Salad: This refreshing summer salad is a great light dinner for a hot evening.

Squash and Veggie Couscous: This delicious and low-fat recipe goes great with lemon-mustard pork chops!

The Healthy Burger: Looking to satisfy your burger craving without eating all the fat? Try these healthy, homemade burgers instead! With chicken or turkey substituted for beef and plenty of veggies, these burgers are full of nutrition and flavor!

Three-Bean Enchilada Chili: This tasty chili recipe uses pinto beans, dark red kidney beans, and black beans for a meal that will keep you satisfied!

Sensational Chicken Noodle Soup: I know everyone has their own favorite chicken noodle soup or recipe but trust me when I say this is sensational.

Fajita Pot Pie: Frozen grilled chicken-style soy-protein patties offer the perfect non-breaded "chicken" patty option!

Spinach Mac & Cheese: This much loved comfort food has had a mini makeover to boost nutrition and cut down on fat. The layer of spinach adds vitamin A, iron, and a nice texture. The use of reduced-fat cheddar cheese and reduced-fat cottage cheese helps to lower the fat.
