Yogurt Parfait

1/4 cup diced fresh strawberries

2 tablespoons low-fat granola

1 cup (8-ounces)  low-fat vanilla yogurt

Fresh mint sprig

Place the strawberries and granola in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Spoon half of the mixture into a serving dish. Spoon the yogurt over the granola mixture. Sprinkle remaining mixture of strawberries and granola on top. Garnish with the mint sprig.

This great-tasting parfait has only 253 calories and is full of flavor.

Omelet

4 tablespoons chopped broccoli

2 tablespoons chopped yellow onion

2 tablespoons finely chopped carrot

4 egg whites

1 whole large egg

1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash

1 ounce Light Laughing Cow cheese

2 tablespoons fat-free re-fried beans

Lightly spray nonstick cooking spray in a medium saute pan. Then using medium-high heat add broccoli, onion, and carrots. Saute for 2 minutes or until tender, but bright. While the veggies are cooking, whip eggs with a wire whisk until foamy and light. Add seasonings. Pour the eggs over the veggies, cover, and cook for about 2 minutes or until the eggs are almost done.

Crumble the cheese over the omelet and spread re-fried beans over the cheese. Fold the omelet in half and allow to cook 2 more minutes over low heat.

This is a great-tasting recipe that is loaded with fiber and protein. The protein will help keep you going all day long. Best of all it only has 247 calories.

Banana-Fudge Smoothie

1-1/2 cups cold nonfat milk or soy milk

1/2 cup soft silken tofu

2 ripe medium bananas, frozen and cut into 1-inch chunks

2 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder

1 teaspoon honey

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Freeze any leftovers for later. This is a great smoothie for the chocolate lover.

Blueberry Bran Mini Muffins

Then make a well in the dry mixture and pour 1/3 of the liquid mixture in and stir until smooth. Add the remaining liquid mixture and stir until just combined. Add the blueberries and stir again.

Spoon 2 tablespoons into each muffin cup. Then bake for about 8 minutes.  Cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy.

    I would like a 7 day meal plan sample. I started with weight watchers and struggled to lose abe 25 lbs. in Nov. I sat and Read my biggest loser cook book and managed to drop 10 more lbs. but am struggling with my last 20. Yes I ride a stationary bike 20 miles a day, treat myself with a WII fit for Xmas and do a Debbie Siebers workOut. Plus I am a shift lead in the kitchen at CSU so am on my feet 8 hrs. a day running round like a chicken with its head chopped off. I just need a little extra help and don’t have extra money to pay to join a club. Thanks
