Here is one! It falls into a soup category and my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
It is low carb and low cal. It freezes great too so make too much so you have some for
later! It is very versatile and you can add what you want and as much as you want. We
add extra chicken and extra spicy flavor...like jalapeno juice. Yummy!
Credit for this one goes to my wonderful husband Brian. He found this on a low
carb web site or blog and has made it several times. I will attach a picture of him
Crock Pot Chicken Taco Soup
2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth (we make our own)
2 cups water (I think I will use a little less water next time, maybe 1 3/4 cups)
1 cup Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
13-14 oz raw chicken breasts (I used frozen ones, because they come out very moist in the crock pot)
2 cups cabbage, chopped
Combine all of the above in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Mine was done in 5 hours. Remove the chicken breasts from the soup and shred the meat with 2 forks. Return it to the soup and stir.
LOW CALORIE PIZZA! Yes. LOW CALORIE PIZZA!
THIS ONE CAME FROM SOMETHING I SAW ON TV....NOT QUITE THE SAME, BUT CLOSE. Deron Kazmaier, my husband mad the sauce from scratch. You could used jarred or canned.
I, Marna Kazmaier, can Stirrup Up on my horse again because of foods like this one.
This is easy enough for even someone like me, someone that is not the best cook, and really does not even like cooking.
Take a Burrito Shell, make a Pizza Pie, anyway you want it.
Deron made a Pizza Sauce using a can of diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, with a little bit of honey and seasoning.....cooked it down a while in a skillet, low flame.
He added all sorts of veggies and less graded cheese to mine than his. <smiles>
Place in preheated oven at 350 for approx. 15 minutes...watch yours, you might not like it as crunchy as we do....
And man. Is it good and hot and Delicious when it comes out and is ready to eat! Chew slow and enjoy!

Here is my favorite EASY recipe, everyone I serve it to loves it - dressed up it can be served even at elegant dinner, yet keeps in the fringe for easy snacking.
Cream Cheese Mousse:
1 small packet jello - any flavor, regular or sugar free
1 6oz packet cream cheese - regular or fat free
Make the Jello according to the directions on the box,
when all of the gelatin is dissolved (still a bit warm) place in blender with
cream cheese and blend until very smooth.
Pour into champagne glasses
and chill until firm.
Garnish with any fresh fruit, mint leaves, a bit of shaved chocolate, what ever goes well with the flavor you are using.
Holiday favorite - Cranberry gelatin and cream cheese - before chilling stir in walnuts, grated orange peel and halved large table grapes.
This is a low-sugar version of a regular one. Fat is still a bit high- so this is still int eh 'treat' category -
