    I recommend checking out Tosca Reno's web site with clean eating recipes and her weight loss book. She is the queen of clean eating. I included one recipe here, but you will find plenty more on her web site.

    I love to make a veggie stir fry and put it over protein, right now my choice is hard boiled eggs cut up

    IN a non-stick pan -- (no butter, no pam, i don't use oil)

    broccoli, mushrooms, onion, pepper, minced garlic, diced celery

    Cover and cook about 5-10 mins over med-high, stirring every two mins or so

    Dice up eggs, chicken whatever your protein choice is -

    Cover with your veggie stir fry

    I've got a couple. This one is actually from a Weight Watchers Cookbook, but would, I believe, qualify:

    Dal is an Indian dish usually made with lentils. It is sometimes served as a soup and sometimes as a side dish or condiment to complement a buffet or other Indian foods.

    Makes 8 servings

    1 lb red lentils, picked over and rinsed
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 medium onions, chopped
    2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
    1 T grated fresh ginger
    1 T canola oil
    2 t ground cumin
    2 t ground coriander
    1/2 t ground turmeric (optional)
    1 t salt (to taste)
    4c low sodium vegetable (or chicken) broth
    2 c water

    In a slow cooker, place the lentils, garlic, onions, carrots, ginger, oil, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt. Pour in the broth and water; stir to combine. Cover and cook on low until the lentils are soft and the vegetable tender, 9-10 hours

    Per Serving (1 cup) 235 Cal, 2g Fat, 0g Sat Fat, 0 g Trans Fat, 0 mg chol, 547mg sodum, 39 g carb. 10 g Fiber, 16 g. protein, 70 mg calcium

    Notes: I had not fresh ginger, so I put in what seemed like an appropriate amount of dried, ground ginger. It didn't ruin the soup, anyhow. I also started this at about 5pm and cooking it on the stove, it is ready in a little less than an hour. You just make it like a regular soup: saute the vegetables in the oil, add the lentils, spices and broth/water and cook until it turns into mush. I also added chopped green peppers and would like to use peppers with a little more kick next time.
