Volumetrics and Vegetables

{prepping a volumetrics recipe- lots of veggies!}
We've been trying to eat healthier here at home, and have been using a lot of recipes from Dr. Barbara Roll's "The Volumetrics Eating Plan". It focuses on food with low energy density - or low calories per gram. Lots and lots of vegetables and whole grains! 

So far we've loved the Almond Chicken Salad Sandwich, Chicken and Avocado Pita Pockets, and Bulgur & Vegetable Stuffed Peppers. Husband requested the Buffalo Chicken Wraps for Father's Day. He loved them, but as I'm not such a fan of hot sauce and blue cheese dressing so not a hit for me!

Have you ever tried Volumetrics recipes? And I wish I could say our kids loved these meals, but they for the most part don't.


p.s. Don't forget to enter my Wow Bow Acquabol Portable Pet Bowl Giveaway! I'm drawing three winners on July 4!

  2. Wow all of the dishes sound so good especially the avocado pita pockets!

  3. This photo looks so amazing - I love veges but for the most part with olive oil on them and roasted. My husband is total health nut but so have forwarded this to him....

  4. I went on a 3 week clense a few months ago and have never felt better! My hubby wants healthier eating around here too! We do not do a ton of sugar or white bread but pizza gets me every time! I love cheese! I am off to check out the 'Volumetrics eating plan' now. Happy Wednesday... -Ann
    (btw- did you ever get the pics. of my house?)

  5. Ann- I did get the pics of your house! Thank you!

    I adore pizza, too - we made the "Aristotle Pizza" from the Volumetrics Eating Plan and it was really good! Of course, we made a second traditional pizza for the kids that night!
