Low-Calorie, No-Cook Summer Recipes

Slimmed-down no-cook recipes for summer.EatingWell2
In the dog days of summer, you don’t have to turn on your stove or oven to get a delicious and healthy meal on the table. These no-cook recipes will have you enjoying diet-friendly salads, slaws, gazpacho, wraps and sandwiches, all while keeping your cool.



Tuna Salad-Stuffed Tomatoes with Arugula
The tuna in this great-looking stuffed tomato recipe isn’t your typical mayo-based affair. The sherry vinaigrette does double duty: it adds fresh flavor to the tuna filling and also dresses the baby arugula and white bean salad……

Italian Vegetable Hoagies
This delightfully easy, and somewhat messy, sandwich packs a punch with sweet balsamic vinegar, artichoke hearts, red onion, provolone cheese and zesty pepperoncini. We love it for dinner as well as lunch. If you’re packing the hoagies to take along, keep the ingredients separate and assemble right before eating to avoid soggy bread. Serve with tomato and cucumber salad…..

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Fried Capers
Pairing juicy, sweet summer tomatoes with the salty crunch of fried capers and a mustardy vinaigrette creates the most mouthwatering heirloom tomato salad recipe we’ve ever had…..

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili



3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 006
For Breakfast this morning I made some Egg White Scrambled Eggs (with Egg Beater’s Egg Whites), fried up 2 Bob Evan’s Turkey Sausage Patties, 2 toasted slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger for Mom, she just needed a few items. Rain showers on and off and mid 80’s with high humidity. I’ll be glad when this high humidity streak ends! Finally got the front flower bed in good shape, it turned out good. For dinner tonight it’s one of my favorites, 3 Bean Turkey Chili.


I was ready for some Chili, 3 Bean Turkey Chili! I had a container left in the freezer so I sit it in th3 Bean Turkey Chili 002e fridge overnight to thaw. To heat it up I took a small sauce pan, sprayed it Pam cooking spray and added the Chili. I reheated it on medium heat, stirring often. Reheated and ready for Dinner! I love this Chili! I made this batch using Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. I also make it using my favorite Buffalo, Wild Idea Ground Buffalo. Either version turns out great! I served this with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, some added Frank’s Hot Sauce, and Skyline Chili Oyster Crackers. Chili, Cheese, Frank’s Hot Sauce, and Crackers – Dinner is served! I’ve left the original post and recipe below. Enjoy, I am!



To make this I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili 3 Bean Beans (Red Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 001(Unseeded and Chopped), and 4 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans), 1/2 Tsp Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweeks to it and it turns out delicious!


To prepare it I start by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 005Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I add from the skillet to the plastic liner lined Crock Pot. Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and spices is a perfect match. (Recipe Below)
