    • Flaxseed and Rye Breadsticks

      The combination of rye flour and flaxseeds makes these crispy breadsticks irresistible. Flaxseeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps to regulate blood glucose levels.

    • Spinach and Cheese Roll-Ups

      Aromatic basil gives the spinach filling in the pasta roll-ups a zippy flavor.

    • Scallops and Pasta Salad

      The fat content in this scallops, spinach, and pea pasta salad is minimal because the orange and white wine vinegar dressing is made without any oil.

    • Four-Grain Bread

      Four fiber-rich four grains (oats, barley, whole wheat, and cornmeal) are used to make this hearty bread.

    • Terrific Tortellini Salad

      Bright-colored vegetables lurking among cheese-filled tortellini transform even picky eaters into vegetable eaters.

    • Wild Rice and Oat Bran Bread

      Wild rice, with its nutty flavor and chewy texture, speckles this wholesome Wild Rice and Oat Bran Bread.

    • Pasta and Fresh Tomato Sauce

      This pasta sauce is the essence of simplicity -- chopped Roma tomatoes lightly sauteed in a little olive oil and seasoned with basil are tossed with hot cooked rotini.

    • Parmesan Corn Bread

      Bulgur brings crunchy goodness to this dramatic basil-flavored version of down-home Parmesan Corn Bread. Flecks of sun-dried tomatoes and green onions give this corn bread color and flavor. A perfect match for a soup or salad.

    • Raisin-Carrot Muffins

      Wheat germ and carrots up the fiber in these Raisin-Carrot Muffins. Buttermilk keeps them low in fat. These mildly sweet muffins are terrific for breakfast, but you'll also love them as a serve-along for chili or stew.
