1 bag of shredded broccoli-slaw mix
1-2 avocados (depending on size)
1 lime
1.) In a bowl, smash the avocado until it is a creamy texture
2.) Cut lime into wedges and squeeze

Cucumber n Chicken Salad
What you'll need:
Baked Chicken
1 Cucumber
2 Tomatoes
1 Onion (you will not need to use the whole thing)
2 TSP Olive Oils
Salt, Pepper, Garlic and Dill to Taste (heavier on the dill)
1) Preheat oven to 350*
Bake chicken for 20-25 minutes
2) Cut cucumber into slices
3) Dice both tomatoes
4) Add chopped onion to taste. I prefer to cut the onion into small strips. You do not use as much but get a good amount of onion taste with each bite.
5) Mix olive oil with veggies and add seasonings
6) once chicken is cooked, add to veggie mix.
Grilled Greek Chicken Kabobs
What you'll need:
 1-2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast
1-2 Whole Lemons (depending on size)
Olive Oil
1. Preheat your grill to the desired setting
2. Cut chicken into 1 1/2 inch thick cubes
3. In a bowl pour 1/2-1 cup of olive oil (the amount of olive oil you will use will vary depending on how large the bowl is, but it should be enough to cover the chicken)
half of a lemon, and salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
Toss chicken into the olive oil and lemon mix and let sit for 15 minutes
5.) Place chicken on kabob skewers
6.) Squeeze the remaining lemon juice over the chicken
7.) Sprinkle the oregano over the kabobs
8.) Cook 15 minutes rotating every 5 minutes. If you need to cook longer then do so.

This meal is: Carb Friendly, Low-Fat, High Protein, Low Sodium and DELICIOUS :)
No-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
What you need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of applesauce
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
 2.) Mix the applesauce, sugar and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour, then fold in the chocolate chips.
 3.) Drop large a spoonful of the cookie mix onto a lightly greased baking sheet
 4.) Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottoms are golden. Cool on wire racks. Tip: when you take them out, put them on a spread out paper bag. It'll absorb even more grease and it's easy clean-up.
