Easter Dinner Menu For Those On A Low Carb or Low Calorie Diet

    

     Even though I won’t be making an entire “Easter Dinner” on Sunday, I thought this was the perfect time to create a figure friendly menu for spring entertaining. I have used Eating Well’s website to gather some delicious recipes that fall into both their low calorie and low carb catagories.  You can enjoy one serving size of each delicious spring dish and only use 538 calories, 41 Carbs (only 22 Carbs if you skip dessert), and 25 grams of fat. I hope you will enjoy viewing my Spring Dinner Menu. For the recipes for each dish, click on the picture. It will link you directly to the full details at Eating Well.
