Souinds great. I make my own salad dressing. I use a tsp extra virgin olive oil, a teaspoon of Greek yoghurt, cider vinegar, oregano, pepper and a tiny bit of dijon mustard. Put it in a jar and shake. Have not worked out the calories but I only drizzle about a teaspoon on my salad or I have it with no dressing, even better.

I made this Vietnamese Pork Tenderloin salad for dinner last night--honestly one of the best expenditures of 200 calories I have found. There is a minimal amount of sugar in the dressing, so diabetics could probably replace with a smidge of stevia. Awesome recipe! I felt very satisfied after eating, plus there were enough calories left for steamed shrimp appetizer and a big bowl of berries for dessert.

Found a great site called skinnytaste.com which offers recipes with nutrition information. Thanks to them, we were able to have breakfast, Sante Fe stuffed peppers for lunch (delicious) and Dad's Cauliflower soup this evening -- all well under 500 calories for the day.

Just requested the "Fast Diet Cookbook" from my library so hopefully I will have lots of recipes to try as I ease into this lifestyle.

I really like salsa as a dressing on salads. It is chunkier and therefore more satisfying to me than just the pourable variety.

I make a raw salsa that is really tasty with lots of different meals. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=2533728&ff=1

3 Medium Tomatoes
1/2 a small onion
1 chilli pepper
1tsp dried coriander leaf
lime juice (from one wedge)
small splash of water.

finely dice tomato, onion and chilli and put into a small bowl. Stir in coriander, lime juice and a little water and serve.

4 servings 24 calories per serving

I also enjoy a baked falafel recipe that I tweaked a little from the original on here. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=2392953

1 tin chickpeas
1 tin kidney beans
3 cloves garlic
2 small onions, chopped
dried parsley
1 lime juiced and zested
2 T ground cumin
1 T ground coriander
1 t black pepper
1/4 t salt
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (4tbsp)
2 T olive oil
Chilli flakes (optional)

Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.

Mash the beans and add the garlic, onions, lemon juice and zest, spices, parsley, salt and pepper and combine. Add flour as needed. The mixture should stick together but not be dry. Depending on the texture of your beans, you might need to add more or less flour.

Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet. With oiled hands form mixture into balls or patties, each slightly larger than a golf ball (just less than 1/4 cup each). Makes 12

Bake 20 minutes, flip and bake another 15 minutes, until falafel are browned on both sides and crispy on the outside.

Serve with toasted pitta and add salads and sauces if you like.

3 servings, 453.2 calories per serving (includes 1 pitta bread per serving).

Salsa Dressing....My problem has been the dressing for my salad on fast day. I don't like to add 40 or more calories for just my salad topping. I can have 2 tbs of salsa on my salad and it's only 10 calories. Not perfect but it's a start. My salsa now is Chi Chi's chunky but next time I buy it I will look for a more runny kind.
