CFMoss I stick with those three as I get a lot of heartburn. Today, I made turkey hamburg. I found B&M bake beans and only l20 for half cup and l gram of sugar in a cup. The ones I like vegertarian have l2 grams of sugar. I am trying to cut sugar for trigs.
When you look for stuff also check out the sugar.
I either make chicken, or fish, or turkey or chicken meatloaf. If I have soup I use the Progresso and docker it up. Now, if I make pasta I only have a bit and dh has the rest.

Just wondering what kind of spices and flavors that you enjoy because there are lots of good recipes that are very flavorful but lower in calories. Even though all of my family is currently on sparkpeople in some fashion - my teenage son gets way more calories than I do or even my husband (who has reached his goal) does. Therefore, I often am glad to make recipes that have 4 or 5 servings for the 3 of us - I get one serving and they each get 1.5 or 2 servings particularly of a main dish something. That might find it useful to aim for more servings to help fill him up especially with food types that he enjoys.

Here is one I created and when served to company loved it. I took 20 chicken tenders and put in a pan.
Then I took a plastic cup and filled a quarter of it with ketchup, grated cheese, Italian dressing and Thousand Is dressing, oregano, paisley,oregano and piccalilli. The piccalilli gives it a sweetness. I added a can of whole small potatoes and put paisley over them. I poured the sauce, after mixing it together over the chicken. then I spread breadcrumbs over the chicken and some more greated cheese. I cooked it at 400 for 45 min. When it is done the sauce is not only on the chicken but in the pan. I just pour it over the chicken in the dish. I use fat free stuff so I believe the calories are fewer. Let me know what you think. When putting it on the dish to serve you could also add a veggie and that should fill anyone up.

I'm sure this site has several recipes for really healthy chili. You could leave yours "clean" - and he can decorate his with cheese and sour cream.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

Kate actually in the winter when our grill is covered with ice and snow I will just broil 5 minutes a side and it tasts fine. That way you don't have to defrost your deck.

Thanks Sophie!

I don't mind buying a large bottle if I can't find the smaller ones...I'll just repeat this recipe until it's gone. Or perhaps, like Gretchen Wilson, I will develop an appreciation for shots of whiskey...it could happen... ;)

First I need to prep the grill; it (along with everything else on the deck,) is coated with snow and ice. Chicago has been hit with a lot of snow lately!

Kate, I get two mini bottles of Jack Daniels blended whiskey. They mini bottles are like the ones they serve on air planes. If you try it let me know what you think.

How about steak? A 6 ounce filet mignon is 313 calories. You could do a filet with asparagus (13 cals) and oriental rice (140 cals per half cup). You could also have a 4oz glass of red wine for I think 100 cals or so- double check that one though.

ok, I'm hungry now.

Yesterday I cooked an Eye of Round roast in the crockpot with salsa, onion powder, Mexican seasonings. Then I chopped it up and separated it into two dishes - a tasty soup or whole wheat pita filling for me... or my husband and kids could put it in a tortilla with cheese, sour cream... I cook that way a lot. My family is all naturally thin, and I'm the only one that watches calories.

Chef Sophie,

That sounds really good! I have a question about the bourbon though ..what kind do you use/recommend? I have no idea what to buy when a recipe calls for bourbon, whiskey, brandy, etc. I generally go by the premise that if it isn't good enough to drink, don't cook with it either...but I don't drink hard liquor, so I'm lost in this department! Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Kate

This might work.

Bourbon and Brown Sugar Flank Steak with Garlic-Chive Mashed Potatoes


Pork tenderloin will also work in this recipe.


Steak:
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup minced green onions
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (2-pound) flank steak, trimmed
Cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Potatoes:
3 pounds small red potatoes
6 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Garnish:
8 fresh chives, cut into 1-inch pieces


To prepare steak, combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add steak. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally. Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade.

Prepare grill.

Place steak on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Combine reserved marinade and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

To prepare potatoes, place potatoes and garlic in a large Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 30 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Return potatoes and garlic to pan, and place over medium heat. Add sour cream, milk, butter, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mash potato mixture to desired consistency with a potato masher. Stir in chopped chives. Mound 3/4 cup potatoes on each of 8 plates; arrange 3 ounces steak around each serving of potatoes. Drizzle 1 tablespoon sauce on each plate; sprinkle with chive pieces, if desired.

My boyfriend and i live together. I'm a calorie counter so intake is an important part in the meals I make. Most of the low fat and low cal. recipes I have made are to bland for him to enjoy.... I need a recipe that will be light on the calories but tasty and hardy for my man. Got any good recipes? thanks
