Our Cajun-Style Red Beans and Rice takes just a few minutes to assemble but delivers loads of hearty, snappy flavor.
This Tropical Salsa recipe has just about everything that’s deliciously divine, from mangoes to pineapple, but absolutely nothing that’s bad for you. No salt, no added sugar, no waist-expanding oil or other fat. Wow!
This medley of shrimp, scallops and clams is served in a white wine sauce.
Think outside the typical salad bowl. Instead of greens, enjoy the melony-cucumber flavors of chayote squash dressed up with Asian accents like rice vinegar and a hint of soy sauce.
Chayotes, also known as “vegetable pears,” are related to zucchini, cucumber, and melons, and actually taste like a combination of the three. Native to Mexico, they are very high in vitamin C and fiber, and very low in calories. Each serving of our Chayote Slaw is just 28 calories. Chayotes can be eaten raw, like our slaw, or cooked.
Did you know that a serving of many salad dressings has more calories than a cheeseburger? Here’s a great alternative, Champagne Vinaigrette. It sings with flavor (and will have you singing when you get on the bathroom scale). It has only 10 calories per 2-tablespoon serving.
In this Carrot and Pineapple Salad, always a hit in Pritikin’s dining room, the tart lime juice balances beautifully with the sweet pineapple. Each 1-cup serving is just 45 calories. What a yummy way to shed excess weight!
