Barbecue kebabs for dessert? Why not! Substitute low fat sour cream if you prefer.
Grilled Pineapple Kebabs with Dulce de Leche Cream
Honeyed Ricotta with Berries
Tired of the same old breakfast cereal? This low-fat breakfast dish is high in protein and provides all the goodness of berries.
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.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
Whipped Berry Yogurt Snow
This is a nice light dessert even the kids will enjoy. Plan to make it the day before serving, as it takes a while to set in the refrigerator. Yogurt is rich in potassium, an important factor in controlling blood pressure.
Whole Wheat Scones
This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Sweet Corn and Crab Soup
To get filmy and light strands of egg, the soup should be simmering. If the soup’s at a hard boil, the egg gets scrambled and rubbery.
Bruschetta Halibut with Easy Green Onion Couscous
A delicious and colourful way to get more healthful omega-3 fat in your family’s diet.
