I really enjoy reading a description of a salad on a menu and creating my own version. That’s how this one came about, and I make it once a week! –Dixie in Orlando

My kids – even the pickiest ones loved it and even asked for more. There is a small amount of fat in this recipe from the vegan cheese. I’m hoping this tiny amount doesn’t upset anyone. I apologize in advance if it does. It’s so hard to find recipes that are virtually fat free that my kids like – this one fit the bill so I thought I’d share it. –Gayle
1 T tamari soy sauce
1 teas dark sesame oil…
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar…
I have an awesome lower fat pesto sauce. I got it from the McDougall newsletter and adapted it. I think the original was created by Jill Nussinow who teaches together with McDougall’s during their live in sessions and on their latest DVDs.
1 medium red or white onion, peeled and diced
[salt] and pepper to taste…
8 ounces baked tofu
This simple salad is especially delicious in the autumn when apples are fresh. Using a pre-washed salad mix makes it easy to prepare.

I started with a recipe for vegetarian Pad Thai that I found on the WeightWatchers.com forums, but I’ve changed it drastically over the past two years.

Not truly fat-free, this delicious pasta dish gets its creaminess from tahini. One of the most popular pasta dishes on this site.
You won’t fool non-vegans with this, but if you’re used to nutritional yeast “cheese” sauces, you’ll love this soy-free dish.
This is my famous Panang curry recipe with kale, which has a slightly different twist and lots of veggies – resulting in a huge pot of steaming, nutritious joy.
- Ridiculously Easy Jalapeño PicklesAt the beginning of last fall, the jalapeño plants in my garden went into overdrive, and I found myself with a whole bunch of peppers all at one time. Now, I love jalapeños. I put slices of them, seeds and all, on sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and burgers all summer long. I love the heat and […]
- Banana “Caramel” Ice Cream Sundae (and Some Excellent House News)Waiting to hear good housing news can take a lot out of a family, especially when the weather is as hot as its been out here in the west so early in the summer–even in Portland. Thankfully, a good healthy dessert and a feel-good movie are great distractions to the “what ifs” that are naturally […]
