Delicous AND low in Calories??

DaisyM | Aug 27, 2008 01:58 PM

What do you make that really is delicous and helps you keep your weight in check? I'd really like some ideas for making dishes that really work...and aren't full of calories....and fat.

Here's something that I make that is super easy and great. Marinate boneless chicken breasts in plain, greek yogurt. Add garlic, salt and your favorite Indian spices and lemon. Grill it and it seriously tastes like tandoori chicken.

You can do the same marinade on salmon and bake it. I also shredded zucchini and saute it on high heat in just a little bit of olive oil. Add garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice...and a little shredded cheese.

Please share your ideas. I'm doing the gym thing....but it would help to have some dishes that don't make me feel deprived.
