1) Grilled Adobo Chicken Burgers

2) Butternut Squash With Rosemary And Halloumi
“Trying to eat more vegetarian meals? Halloumi is your new best friend and pairing it with butternut squash and rosemary is a great place to start.”
3) Lemon Chicken Romano
“Lemons remind me of a bright sunny summers day so I figured today is a good day for cooking with lemons. Plus I have a bunch of lemons I need to use up. I had this idea to create a recipe similar to Chicken Parmesan but with a few alternate flavors. “
4) Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup
“I have an interesting discovery to share today: Healthy (aka “skinny”) broccoli cheddar soup still tastes as rich and comforting as the higher-calorie classic version.”
5) Creamy Greek Yogurt Mac & Cheese

7) Healthy Spinach Lasagna Rolls
“These are 6 WW points plus and 224 calories per roll. I added one some garlic and Italian seasonings to the mix which shouldn’t change the points.”
8) Chili Pasta Bake
“Two comfort food favorites—pasta and chili—come together in an epic bake.”
9) (Almost) No Carb Pizza
“The crust is not as crisp traditional pizza. Make sure you cook it until the top is golden brown and let it cool the full 10 minutes before adding the toppings and that will help. You still may end up with a fork, but good, soft pizza is better than no pizza!”
10) Easy Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan
“This is my favorite go-to version of homemade chicken parmesan. It’s healthier than traditional chicken parmesan – especially restaurant versions – but doesn’t sacrifice in the flavor or texture department.”
11) Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
“Lightened up breaded baked little chicken bites tossed in delicious buffalo wing sauce, wrapped with quinoa and fresh veggies in a leaf of buttery lettuce. Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps make a delicious light lunch or dinner – like a salad you can eat with your hands!”
12) Parmesan And Spinach Orzo
“Orzo is one of my favorite kind of pastas. It may be due to the fact that I grew up on Korean rice my entire childhood, so it’s really no surprise that I would love this pasta in rice-shaped form. And when you couple that with the amazing flavors of the salty Parmesan and fresh spinach in a light cream sauce, what’s not to love?”
13) Cauliflower Pizza Crust
“Cauliflower pizza crust has gained a huge popularity in the past few years among low carb dieters and mainly fitness enthusiasts. Because you are indulging with pizza, America’s favourite comfort food, and not wrecking your nutrition numbers.”
14) Santa Fe Stuffed Pepper
“Today I’ve got another delicious, healthy option for you! It’s no secret that I love the spice, cumin. Seriously love it. I try it put it in as many dinners as possible. Today’s stuffed peppers are no exception!”
15) Garlic Parmesan Zucchini and Tomato Bake
“We love Parmesan Zucchini Sticks and I have baked tomatoes topped with Parmesan cheese a numerous # of times. So, I thought why not to combine both with some garlic and make zucchini bake?! Cheese with garlic is always a winning combo.”
16) Garlic Mushroom Quinoa
“An easy, healthy side dish that you’ll want to make with every single meal!”
17) Pumpkin Bisque
“Even if you’ve decided to cut back on dairy, it’s possible to warm up with a creamy bowl of hot soup that doesn’t lay on the cream or calories too heavily. This light pumpkin-coconut bisque will curb your dairy cravings and keep you on track this Fall.”
18) Stuffed Green Peppers with Brown Rice, Italian Sausage, and Parmesan
“This is my favorite recipe for stuffed green peppers, with turkey Italian sausage, brown rice, and Parmesan, and they freeze well too so you might want to double the recipe. These delicious stuffed peppers are low-glycemic and gluten-free.“
19) Vegan & Gluten-Free One Pot Ratatouille Spaghetti
“Thankfully, this Chickpea Spaghetti was on of the best. Especially texture-wise, I feel this spaghetti held together much better than other gluten-free pastas. No sogginess, just that perfect bite and texture.”
20) Spicy Peanut & Tenderstem Noodle Stir Fry
“This means that food is my comfort and whenever I’m feeling down, it’s what cheers me up. Yep, that sounds about right. But whether I’m feeling down or not, this Spicy Peanut & Tenderstem Noodle Stir Fry is always a winner…”
