Cooking Matters:  

Recipes on the Cooking Matters website each have nutrition information and a beautiful photo of how the food will look when its made. 

Cornell's 'Food & Nutrition Education in Communities'

Recipes from Cornell's FNEC program use less fat and sugar but still taste delicious. Many recipes were created by CCE Nutrition Educators from NY counties, or are used in the classes they teach so they've been tested by families like yours. The recipes use lean meat and low-fat dairy products, and most have 35% or fewer calories from fat. All FNEC recipes contain less than 2 teaspoons of added sugar per serving. You'll find recipes for Beverages, Grains, Breads and Muffins, Vegetables, Dips & Condiments, Fruits, Main Dish & Casseroles, Dairy, Salads, Protein, Side Dishes, Snacks/Desserts, Soups, Stews and Sauces, and Vegetarian dishes.
