    Fat Free Ranch Dip 

    1 pkg Dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
    1-17.6 oz. Container FAGE 0% Fat Greek Yogurt

    Stir both ingredients together and chill well before serving with crudites’s(carrots, celery, pepper strips and other raw vegetables

    I made baked chicken last night and wanted a sauce or something to dip the chicken into. Thinking about my diet and how to stay on track I made this with some FAGE GREEK YOGURT! Man o Man was this good and it came out thick and rich tasting. If you have not tried FAGE Yogurt you gotta try this dip mix made with FAGE GREEK YOGURT!! I thought yuck plain yogurt how can that be good well I am in love and I plan on making more, maybe adding some sun dried tomatoes and cubes of English cucumbers added for texture. If you like ranch dip your gonna love the 0% fat part and the taste is even better!

    Beef Minestrone Rice Cooker Soup 

    Whoa is me, I have to eat low fat! So I have been counting my cholesterol, and fat grams in all my foods for the past 2 weeks. I found myself getting hungry in between meals. My niece has been helping me stay on track and is dieting herself with WW. (weight watchers). She loves to make weight watchers soup and eat that. I start drooling thinking about the soup so I had to get my rice cooker out and start making it. I weigh in tomorrow morning. My niece weighed in and is down 5 pounds, Rats!!! I know I have a hard time staying honest if I get hungry…so I decided to make some low calorie and low fat soup.

    I want to thank Day by Day Nutrition for the Photo. Please go take a look at their soup which is much more involved but a beautiful soup for those that love soup making! http://www.daybydaynutrition.com/category/nutrition/page/3/

    Thanks again Day by Day!

    Beef Minestrone Soup

    2 12 oz. cans Beef Chunks
    2 cans Mixed Vegetables
    1 can Green Beans
    1 15oz can Diced Tomatoes
    1 onion, chopped
    32 oz Pkg. low sodium beef Broth
    2 Tablespoons Dry Granulated Beef Bouillon

    Place all ingredients in your rice cooker and set to white rice. It cooks pretty fast so if you like a more deep flavor be sure to let the rice cooker cool down and then set for a second time.

    163 Calories, 20 grams protein, 4grams carbs, 2 grams fiber, 48mgs cholesterol, 163 grams sodium

    Happy News I am down 10 pounds and the soup was very good. My husband says it needs more starch like rice or potatoes. I told him we need to keep it thin so we can lose some weight. He sighed but agree we need to get our weight under control.

    Vegetable Barley Soup

    Vegetable Barley Soup for the Rice Cooker

    1 14.5 oz can Petite Diced Tomatoes
    2 15 oz. can Mixed Vegetables
    5 Cups Water
    2 tsp fresh minced Garlic
    1/2 cup fresh Onions, chopped fine or minced
    1 tsp. Tomato Bouillon (knorr caldo de tomate)
    1 heaping Tablespoon ground Chicken bouillon(or 3 cubes)
    1/2 teaspoon ground White Pepper
    3/4 Cup Quick Cooking Barley

    Combine all ingredients in the rice cooker and set to white rice and when it shuts off the soup should be done. If the barley or vegetables need more time, shut off the rice cooker and let it cool for 10 minutes then turn the cooker back on and set it once again for white rice.

    This soup smells and tastes delicious. It was a huge hit and a fast way of getting all your vegetables. You can also use up your canned vegetables this way. It’s a fast go to recipe, lunch or dinner in less than 20 minutes.
