Height: 5'1"

Default Banana-Pecan Pancakes

1 cup flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/3 cup mashed bananas
2 Tblsp low calorie margarine
2 tsp honey
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Mix all together. Use 1/4 cup of batter to make 1 pancake. Makes 12 pancakes or 4 servings.

Per serving: 149 calories; 4.3 g fat

I make these ahead and freeze by servings in bags and then take out the night before. Pop in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and top with 1 Tbsp lite pancake syrup. Not like the real thing, but pretty good!

Chicken chili
3 chicken breast
3 cans northern beans
1 jar salsa
1 pack of chili seasoning
I added an onion

(I start with frozen chicken breast) Put the chicken in a skillet or pot with water to boil. I like to use a skillet, so I can cut it up as it boils Throw all ingredents in a Lg pot. I go ahead and put the broth from boiling the chicken as well. Slow cook till the onion is tender. If you want this to be a quick meal, you can put the onion in when you boil the chicken.

I was told this was 3 pts per cup.

It tastes great

Default Crustless Broccoli/Cheese Quiche

Made this over the weekend from a mish-mash of two recipes I had.

tsp margerine
1/4 c finely chopped onion
10 oz frozen broccoli (I used two crowns of fresh broccoli - YUM)

Saute above in non-stick pan until tender. Place onion/broccoli in 9" pie plate sprayed with Pam (I used my stoneware one and didn't have to spray it).

Combine:

2 c egg product (I used 1/2 c of eggs - had these really small farm eggs - and 1.5 c of low fat milk - didn't have skim)
1/2 c Kraft 2% milk cheddar (I didn't have any so I just used a cheddar monterey jack mix I had)
1/2 c low fat cottage cheese
1/8 tsp pepper
(recipe didn't call for salt, but it needed it when finished - maybe a 1/2 tsp? - I had to sprinkle it on before eating)

Pour over onion/broccoli in pie plate. Bake at 350° until golden and center set (about 45-50 min).

Very yummy - getting ready to have a slice now.

BTW - you can freeze quiche and reheat it in the microwave. Would be great to have single servings ready to grab as you ran out the door in the morning to eat at work (what I am doing today).

I think next time, I might add some lean ham to it. I'm sure there are a million variations that would be good. Maybe imitation crab meat!

Enjoy!

My sis has me hooked on this. Tons of nutrients and not too bad on fat/calories if careful. It is on the back of the dressing bottle with no amounts so I just eyeball.

Baby spinach
Walnuts
Mandarin oranges
Red onion
Goat cheese crumbles
Wish Bone Raspberry Vinagrette dressing

YUMMY! Enjoy!

Default BBQ Chicken & Foil Veggie Pack

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients


4 ounces boneless/skinless chicken breast, raw
1 fresh corn cob
2 teaspoons margarine, canola-based, trans-fat free
1/2 cup broccoli, chopped, frozen
1/2 cup cauliflower, fresh or frozen
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
2 cups tossed green salad
2 tablespoons fat-free salad dressing, favorite flavor
1 roll, whole wheat

Preparation

Preheat grill to medium heat.
Wash and pat dry chicken breast. Trim any visible fat and discard.
Shuck and de-silk the corn cob. Place corn cob in a piece of foil and dot with 1 teaspoon of the margarine. Tightly roll the ear of corn in the foil and twist or fold over the ends.
Place the broccoli and cauliflower on another piece of foil and season with basil or any desired seasonings; be creative to avoid using salt as a seasoning.
Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of margarine and two ice cubes to the vegetables.
Bring the four corners of foil together in a triangle or pyramid shape; fold open edges together in loosely locked folds. The ice cubes will melt and provide moisture for the vegetables and the loose packet will allow the air and moisture to circulate.
Place the vegetables on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. The corn may take a little longer.
Place the chicken on the grill when the vegetables are about half done; brush with barbecue sauce.
Turn chicken after 3 - 5 minutes and brush other side with additional sauce if desired. Continue cooking until chicken is cooked through.
Salad may be prepared while food is grilling or in advance. Assemble your tossed salad with a variety of washed salad greens and vegetables, and toss with your favorite fat free salad dressing.
Serve meal with a whole wheat roll.
