100% Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Pretty impressive for a whole-wheat roll, especially right out of the oven. They need some spread as they are a wee bit dry, but they are super soft.

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Bake

Husband-approved and satisfying, this entree packs a 3-ounce serving of protein, 1/2 cup of veggies and a 1/2 cup of dairy per serving. You can make it spicy or not, depending on the power of your palate.

Low-Calorie Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Sweet, refreshing, and easily adaptable. Can’t recommend it enough.

Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

Hearty, delicious, and an easy way to catch a bunch of food groups at once (1/2 cup vegetables, 2 ounces grains, 2 ounces meat, and 1/2 cup dairy). Mmm…

Green Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Vietnamese Steak Sandwiches

These refreshing, flavorful sandwiches warranted a praise-filled phone call from the husband after I packed one in his lunch. They are a tad high in sodium to be heart-healthy as is, but click the link for my heart-healthy tip for reducing sodium.

Boneless Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Thyme

Tastiest pork chops I’ve ever had! They are smothered in tasty sauce and mushrooms. Bonus: My awesome husband made them for me!
