  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Lettuce Chopped
  • Tomatoes Chopped
  • Grated Low Fat cheese
  • Salsa

Brown ground beef and drain fat.  Add taco seasoning , salsa and simmer.  Mix altogether into a salad. 


I make my own taco seasoning using Oregano, Garlic, Paprika, Onion Powder, & Chili Powder (this cuts out the sodium from the Taco Seasoning packages)

Cabbage Rolls

8 large cabbage leaves blanched  

1 cup shredded carrot  

1cup shredded zucchini  

1 cup french style green beans  

1 cup alfalfa or broccoli sprouts  

2 cups finely chopped firm tofu  

1 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese  

2 cups sugar free spaghetti sauce (I make my own)  


toss together all veggies with a small amount of fat free Italian dressing  

divide into 1/2 cup servings  

lay cabbage leaves flat and fill with veggie mixture  

top with 1/4 cup firm tofu and roll loosely  

lay seam side down in a greased cake pan  

cover with sugar free spaghetti sauce and cheese  

Bake at 350 degrees till cheese melts and sauce is bubbly, cheese may be added after sauce begins to bubble if you don't like your cheese browned.  


Veggies will be crisp tender, 2 roll ups is a serving. This is great for lunch or dinner and mimics stuffed shells. without the sauce and cheese it is like an egg roll.
