Cashew Chicken Bake - 277 Calories
Cashew chicken and I are like two peas in a pod except the take out kind is usually not so healthy so I came up with my own version so I wouldn't feel deprived. I like making this when I have a busy week ahead of me because it makes a ton. I use Minute Instant Brown Rice so that it bakes easily in the casserole. So filling and delicious and one of my most popular recipes!
Turkey Spaghetti Zoodles - 221 Calories
This is my favorite dinners because it only takes 10-15 minutes! It also resembles spaghetti which I no longer eat because pasta doesn't fill me up. It's just not worth eating in my opinion. This dish makes me feel as if I'm eating spaghetti without the spaghetti. The zucchini fills me up and gives me that same comforting feeling without the extra calories!
