Lightened Up Creamy Coleslaw
We’ve made a low fat creamy coleslaw by substituting plain yogurt for the usual full fat mayonnaise. Prepackaged coleslaw mix is a great time-saver; look for it in the produce section.
Citrus and Beet Salad
A colourful, low fat salad you can make year-round. Although our dressing was developed to go with spinach, this recipe works equally well with baby arugula.
Easy Weeknight Broccoli Pasta
Broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse- it offers fibre, calcium, vitamins and phytochemicals. One bunch of broccoli is made up of several heads; one head is one individual stem plus its crown. You only need one head for this recipe.
Spaghetti and Tomato Basil Sauce
An easy, basic Italian-style tomato sauce that uses mostly pantry ingredients. If you don’t have basil, stir in a little butter at the end, or a little soft goat cheese.
Garlic-Braised Kale and Corn
If the kale leaves are particularly large or seem tougher than usual, remove the centre rib of the kale leaves, as well as the stems.
