Lovin' this thread! :) I have to agree, spark recipes has some great ideas! I recently made a skillet bean/tomatoes/ spinach dish for mom & dad that was fantastic! Mom and I are part of a TOPS group and we're going to make it to take for a tasting night. Vegetarian, yummy, cheap, and about 300-320 calories per serving, including the cup of pasta....
I was just on sparkrecipes.com looking for a healthy dessert to serve for mother's day, and I found these: Fat Free Zucchini Brownies! The recipe got awesome reviews! I am excited about making them. I am going to wait until everyone tries one and then bring out the recipe page and show everyone what they are made with. Here is the link in case you are interested: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta il.asp?recipe=718085
14 ounces shredded cabbage and carrot coleslaw mix 2 granny smith apples 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries 1/2 cup light mayonnaise 1/4 cup light sour cream 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons honey
Core the apples and cut them into long thin strips (sort of like a large matchstick).
In a large mixing bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, sliced apples, and cranberries. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, and honey until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour the dressing over the coleslaw mixture and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving.

I use tri color noodles Fresh: Green peppers all colors (chopped) Grape tomatoes (Whole) Brocolli (cut up fine) Cucumber (chopped) Red Onion (Chopped) Fat free ranch dressing (just enough for taste) Boil the pasta and rinse with cold water. When the pasta is cold add Green peppers all colors (chopped), Grape tomatoes (Whole), Brocolli (cut up fine)Cucumber chopped) and add Red Onion (Chopped)
Refrigerate until ready to leave the house and add the ranch dressing enough to taste. Sprinkle Cumin on and stir for a spicy kick.

* Coleslaw, 1 bag * Broccoli Cole Slaw, 1 bag * Beef Ramen, 3 packages * Oil 1/2 cup * Sugar, 1/2 cup * Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/3 cup
Cook the noodles then rinse them under cold water. Mix the oil, vinegar, sugar and beef ramen spice packets. Mix the noodles and slaws. Pour the ramen mixture over the salad and mix thoroughly. Refrig over night.
I always want to make sure there is something there that I will eat without feeling guilty. I often bring the veggie. You could do fresh green beans with bacon. Taste great and healthy for you.
