    The calories listed above don't match the calories per serving in the recipe links. What's up?

    I have made 5 of the main dish recipes so far and we love them! Thank you so much for these wonderful, low-calorie recipes! Absolutely fantastic!!! As we are a busy family with a hectic schedule, I food prep on Sunday and being able to use the crockpot and just toss everything in (for most recipes) is an absolute God-send! Thanks again! 🙂

    Are these based on 4 servings per recipe?

      Ann, We like the 2-cup, pint-sized jars, or for a larger salad, use 2 additional cups salad greens and use a quart-sized (4-cup) jar.

    I live alone and don’t like cooking a whole meal just for myself. I do like making a larger portin of something easy to enjoy throughout the week and freeze for another time. Thanks for these, i love all the ingredients offered and look forward to preping these.
