Flank Steak With a Citrus Rub

• 1 lbs of flank steak
• Low-fat cooking spray
• 1 clove of garlic
• 2 tsp orange zest
• 2 tsp lemon zest
• 1/4 tsp salt
• Pepper to taste (about 1/8 tsp seems to work best)

Coat the flank steak with cooking spray. Be sure to only lightly coat the steak. Combine the garlic, salt, pepper and zests with the steak, stirring them around well. Heat a skillet to about medium heat and cook the steak. About six minutes on each side is ample, but you can prepare the steaks based on your personal preference.

Turkey Pizza Recipe

• 1 ½ tablespoons basil, chopped
• 1/8 cup fresh parsley, chopped
• 1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
• 2 ¼ cups skinless turkey, chopped
• ¾ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella (you can substitute for a low-fat pizza blend)
• 3 cloves garlic
• 1 cup chopped onions
• 2 tsp olive oil
• Dough (try wheat dough or you can use the refrigerated dough)
• Parmesan cheese
• 2 cups crushed tomatoes
• 1/8 tsp pepper
• 1/8 tsp salt

Add the olive oil to a skillet on medium heat and add your seasonings along with your tomatoes, garlic and onions. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow it to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes. Roll out your pizza dough and spread the mixture on it. Sprinkle the shredded cheese and then put the turkey on top. Lightly sprinkle the pizza with parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown.


Seasoned Chicken Recipe with Veggies

• 1 ¼ lbs of skinless chicken, preferably drumsticks
• 2 tsp ground cumin
• 2 tsp minced garlic
• 1 tsp dried oregano
• ¼ tsp salt
• 1 small red pepper
• 1 small green pepper
• 2 cups butternut squash, cut
• ½ cup of cilantro (chopped)
• ¾ cups orange juice
• 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil

You’ll need two rimmed baking pans. Line them with nonstick foil and coatspray with cooking spray to be safe. Divide the chicken, peppers and squash in half and place one half in each pan. Combine the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and stir. Pour half of the mix into each pan. You may want to save some for serving. Bake at 475 degrees for 20 minutes, then check and stir. Finish by baking for an additional 20 minutes.


Stuffed Pork Chops Recipe

• ½ teaspoon salt (divided into ¼s)
• ½ teaspoon pepper (divided into ¼s)
• 4 boneless pork chops
• 4 cloves minced garlic
• 1 ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
• ¼ tsp dried oregano
• 1 small roasted tomato (cut up into small pieces
• ¼ cup low-fat crumbled feta or drained cottage cheese
• 3 tablespoon fat-free cream cheese
• 1 ¼ cup chopped frozen spinach
• 2 tablespoon lemon juice
• ½ teaspoon lemon zest

Lightly spray a pan with cooking spray. Add 2 cloves of garlic, spinach, tomatoes, half of the pepper and half of the salt. Saute and then remove from heat. Add your cheese and zest. Cut each pork chop into half through the center. You should be making a horizontal cut. Stuff each pork chop with an even amount of the spinach and tomato mixture. Sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper onto the top of each chop. You can add more if desired. Mix 2 cloves of garlic, lemon juice, oregano and mustard. Coat the top of the pork chops with it using a brush. Broil for about 6-7 minutes, then flip the chops and brush with mustard mixture. Broil for another 2 to 3 minutes or until done.
