  1. With many of us trying to eat healthier it helps to have some low fat dishes to make. 

    Stir Fry Chicken

    When you think of stir fry, you may think of a dish that is full of oil and high in fat.  This recipe is delicious and low fat. 

    1 lb of chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces

    1 large onion, roughly chopped

    1 large pepper, cut into strips

    1 small zucchini, sliced

    chicken stock

    1. Place chicken stock into a wok or frying pan.  Add onions and cook until transluecent. 

    2. Add pepper and zucchini.  Cook for about 5 minutes.

    Serve with a side salad with a light dressing and you will have a great low fat dinner.

    Turkey Burgers

    If you love burgers, but are trying to cut back on your fat intake, turkey burgers are an excellent choice.

    1 lb. ground turkey

    1 Tbsp. all purpose seasoning of your choice

    Mix well and form into 4 burger patties.

    Tip: If the patties are not staying together as well as you would like, it will help to put them in the freezer for about a half hour with parchment paper between them.

    Add lettuce, tomato, onions and serve on a whole grain bun and you have a healthy low fat burger.

    Steak and Potatoes

    Choose a top sirloin or top round steak and you will have a low fat cut of meat.  If you make the steaks on the grill you will not have to add additional fat.

    4 medium potatoes

    Low fat sour cream


    Grill the steaks, about 12-15 for a 1" steak cooked to medium

    Spray 4 pieces of foil with non stick cooking spray one cut up potato on each piece

    Wrap the potatoes in the foil and place on the grill until easily pierced with a fork.
