i need recipes | and i've lost 2 lbs.

i don't really count weight loss till i'm over 10 lbs as mine can fluctuate as much as 7 lbs in any given day! so i'm back to trying to walk/run daily, 2-3 miles, and eat fewer carbs and lower fat...summer makes it easier with the availability of fruit and vegetables in my own garden and at the farmers market and even the produce in the grocery stores is more tasty and attractive in the spring/summer/fall...

we've been eating salads 2-3 times a week and low carb pasta and soy burgers instead of beef. chix tacos or enchilladas are a staple and we get a lighter frozen pizza when we do...then deli turkey sandwiches and low carb tortillas. we also do smoothies with hummus and chips and salsa. all good things...but i'm looking for some easy diversity in our menu...anyone?

do you have a recipe to share with me?

please :)

main dishes
side dishes
even low fat/cal desserts :)

i know salads and fresh fruit are obvious - but do you make a particularly great salad?

oh i know what else we do that i love!
we do bruschette with garden fresh pesto and tomatoes :) love...
and i love fresh 7 layer dip! the only thing in that we really grow are tomatoes, and we still have a few weeks before they're ripening, but i'm looking for other recipes for sure!

thanks! :)
