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…..

From the EatingWell website it’s 30-Minute Low-Calorie Soups. Low Calorie Soup Recipes that includes black bean soup, seafood chowder, chicken soup or gazpacho. Don’t miss out on these delicious, healthy and satisfying Soup Recipes and Ideas. It can all be found on the EatingWell website. http://www.eatingwell.com/



30-Minute Low-Calorie SoupsEatingWell2

Quick soups and quick stews to help you slim down.
Soup is satisfying when you’re on a diet, especially as the weather turns cooler. Even better, soup can help you slim down: studies show that soup makes you feel fuller and more satiated than other types of food. Researchers think that it may have to do with the high water content. Also, when soup is piping hot we eat it more slowly and that gives us time to notice when we feel full. Try one of these quick, super-satisfying, healthy soup recipes tonight, such as black bean soup, seafood chowder, chicken soup or gazpacho.



Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup
This wholesome sweet-and-sour soup combines beef, caraway seeds, sweet paprika and cabbage—ingredients that star in a number of German dishes. It is particularly nice served with crusty rye bread. For an even heartier soup, add diced cooked potatoes along with the cabbage……

Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl
Here’s the quintessence of Japanese home cooking: an aromatic, protein-rich broth served over rice. Admittedly, Japanese cooking leans heavily on sugar – for a less traditional taste, you could reduce or even omit the sugar…….

Ribollita Soup
Ribollita, a traditional hearty Tuscan soup, typically uses day-old bread to add body and thicken the broth. This ribollita recipe uses a bean mash, which keeps the soup gluten-free and adds fiber. Garnish with extra-virgin olive oil or pepper and grated Parmesan…….
