Asian Quinoa Slaw Salad [Best Choice]

With ingredients like cabbage, quinoa, carrots and green onions, this easy Thai salad is bursting with color, flavor, and all the good stuff your body needs – like vitamins and phytonutrients. Best of all? It’s a versatile enough salad that you can serve with any type of meal…you don’t have to limit yourself to just Asian cuisine.

Slimming Tip: Always serve your dressing on the side and try to eat about half of what the recipe recommends. You’ll shave off ½ of the fat, and that’s important when you’re trying to lose weight.

Mango Nice Cream [Best Choice]

Who doesn’t love ice cream? Especially when it’s packed full with good-for-you ingredients instead of cream and sugar. So, next time you have bananas and mango on hand, be sure to give this guilt-free recipe a try.

Brownie Pancakes [Good Choice]

Pancakes aren’t exactly a weight loss friendly food. They’re more like glorified desserts – especially when slathered with butter and syrup. This version has a secret ingredient that REALLY ups the protein and fiber, making them more nutritious and filling. The taste part? Well, most everybody loves chocolate pancakes.

Slimming Tip: If you don’t have Walden Farms chocolate syrup, skip the syrup and serve the pancakes with just fruit on top. Most commercial syrups are full of sugar, which makes weight loss difficult.

Quinoa Bowls with Roasted Veggies and Chicken [Better Choice]

When you’re scrambling for a healthy and quick dinner to make during the week, pull up this recipe. Quinoa, roasted veggies, and chicken pair up together perfectly for a meal that even picky eaters can get excited about. I always make a large batch of meals like this one…and eat leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day.

If you’re vegetarian, use Gardein Chick’n Strips, or Cannellini beans for this bowl.

Slimming Tip: The dressing is optional. The meal will taste great without it, and you’ll shave off quite a bit of fat. If you opt to add some in, do so slowly, and use the minimal amount.

Grilled Corn Fritters [Better Choice]

Corn is on sale this time of year, so load up. You can grill it, or boil it. Or if you’re in a more fanciful mood, you can always make these tasty corn fritters and serve them with breakfast, lunch or dinner. Don’t be surprised if your family asks for seconds.
