Your dinner does sound great!! I love to use Greek yogurt in place of sour cream on my potatoes. Sometimes I even use lowfat cottage cheese on a potato with Mrs. Dash salt free seasonings. It is sooo filling!!

My favorite go-to simple dinner is whole wheat spaghetti with store bought jarred sauce- Newman's Own Sockarooni. It is delicious, filling, healthy, and sooo easy. If I do not want pasta, then I microwave a whole chicken in my Pampered chef stoneware baker, and the chicken is tender and juicy. Cook some rice, or boxed couscous and some veggies, and dinner is ready.
Life is a fatal adventure, it can only have one end. So why not make it as far-ranging and free as possible?
Hummus is very good. In fact, when I entertain or bring dishes to get togethers or parties I often bring a tray that includes tzatziki and hummus. Try the different flavors. So high in fiber and delicious!!
If you like greek yogurt have you tried making a tzatziki sauce? You can google for a recipe but it's a great fat free or very low fat add on for meals. You can use it as a condiment or as a dip with veggies.
Ingredients are pureed or finely diced seeded cucumbers, garlic, a touch of olive oil, fresh dill and lemon juice. You can eliminate the oil but I think it gives something to the body of the flavor and is worth the negligible amount of calories/fat it contributes.
It's delicious, fresh tasting and a great compliment- gives you a dairy and helps you to eat your veggies.
I just had the most satisfying perfect dinner, I could not feel fuller, happier, or more filled with deliciousness. It was soooo easy too. I finally wanted to try using Greek Yogurt instead of other stuff in mashed potatoes. It was awesome! I ate chicken cooked in a little barbecue sauce, with mashed potatos mixed with one tablespoon of greek yogurt with about .5 tbsp's light butter, and i had a handful of green beans on the side. This meal was 429 calories, 46 carbs, 7 grams of fat, and 41 grams of protein! Im at 1300 calories, and am under the minimum of my fat by 3 grams, looks like I get to find something yummy to eat a bit later! Anyone recceomend any other simple satisfying dinners?
