  • Raspberry iced tea
  • Frozen yogurt


  • To shave a few minutes off the clock, replace the homemade salad dressing in the main course with a bottled sweet-sour or Asian-inspired variety. Check the nutrition label to make sure it’s low-fat.
  • Don’t be afraid to add some extras to the salad. Toss in chopped green onions or water chestnuts.
  • Instead of using raisins in the muffins, add an equal portion of dates, dried apricots or dried cranberries.
