I add some grilled chicken to up the protein, but it's good just as it is as well!

can't help....I use a lot of Gina's skinny recipes (google it), plus have 4 weight watcher cookbooks I use, and seldom check out Spark's recipes. And, I love to cook for my extended family, so like to experiment and come up with my own concoctions. Good luck!!!
Daily reminder: count my blessings, state my affirmations, walk with Jesus, think positive thoughts, help others,and spoil my grandkids.

Hello, frugalists! I'm looking for ideas on how you use the given food groups and suggested serving sizes on your plan (if you're using the SparkPeople menu planner) to expand your options at meal times. I found this recipe for lentil shepherd's pie ( www.simplebites.net/eat-well-spend-l es s-my-top-five-frugal-meals-recipe-leR>ntil-shepherds-pie/ -- 5th recipe down) that fit the guidelines for both my 1300-1600cal plan and my husband's 1800-2200cal plan (I had to just add a tsp. of catsup and the herbs, to my food line-up). It was really tasty, too! All the dinner vegetables, starch, and proteins were accounted for in appropriate quantities, so that is going to be one of my go-to recipes, definitely!
How are some ways you've used your allotment to come up with star recipes on a budget, in your own kitchens?
