1 8-inch low-fat whole-wheat flour tortilla
3 tablespoons reduced-fat
sour cream ( 2 grams
of fat or less per
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon
1/2 cup Delano Farms
red seedless grapes,
cut in half
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place tortilla on a small nonstick baking sheet and
bake for 3-4 minutes per side, or until it is completely
crisp throughout. If air bubbles form during cooking,
poke them with a fork, then use a spatula or oven
mitt to carefully press the air out. Remove from the
oven and let cool completely.
Transfer the tortilla to a cutting board and spread
sour cream evenly over the top, leaving a small
border around the edges. Sprinkle brown sugar to
taste evenly over the sour cream. Top evenly with
grapes, cut side down.
Cut into 4 wedges and serve immediately.
Makes 1 serving.

There was a time not so long ago when the word
“healthy” in association with food conjured images of
wheatgrass and fake meat. Trust me, I know. I’ve been
committed to cooking healthy and decadent foods for more than
20 years, and I’ve faced skeptic after skeptic. But I’m excited to
say that we as a society are finally getting it.
We’re coming to realize that fresher is actually better. We’re
seeking out flavorful, lower-calorie, lower-fat, lower-cholesterol,
nutrient-rich foods that actually do taste as good as, if not better
than, our old artery-clogging fallbacks.
I always say that 20 minutes in the kitchen can save you
three hours on a treadmill. It’s true. So often, restaurants are in
such a huge hurry to get the next order out that they add oils or
fats to even the simplest dishes, such as egg-white omelets, just
so they don’t stick to the pan. But at home, I can concentrate on
the flavors I love and get rid of the fats I won’t even miss.
Just by heading to my local Costco to pick up eggs, plenty of
fresh veggies and even cheese, I can make a sinful yet guiltless
omelet in my Circulon nonstick skillet (also available at Costco)
with significantly less fat and fewer calories. I can also pick up
the freshest of fruits and create an amazing fruit salad and serve
it in martini glasses to make it even more special, all for a fraction of the cost (to both my health and my wallet) of eating out.
In this Healthy Dishes chapter, I hope you’ll indulge in some
of my favorites, such as Sweet-and-Sour Chicken Bowl, Pan-Fried
Salmon with Mango Cucumber Salsa and even Peach Shortcake ...
