Recipe HELP Pleeeeease..............

I'm having 4 dieting women for lunch this week and need a recipe/menu without shrimp. Can anyone help please???

p.s. yes this is my second request, but I realized that the 1st request would be ignored because of it's lack of urgency. THANKS so much for any help!!!

make your own sandwich bar.

you could have all the sammie fixins with low-fat, healthy options. sprouts, different mustards, cooked chicken. have a scale to weigh it up.

offer carrots and celery with light dip as appetizers.

baked lays are good too.

for dessert, you could have fresh fruit with the low cal/low fat cool whip. that stuff is good.

How about an event salad:
mixed greens and/or fresh spinach
red peppers
artichoke hearts
sprinkling of feta cheese, olives, chopped nuts, garbanzo beans
~2oz of protien per person: grilled chicken or tuna
Low fat balsamic vinaigrette

Accompany the salad with some really fresh whole wheat rolls
And fresh fruit for dessert

Maybe a baked potato and soup bar?

Have the baked potatoes ready, wrapped in foil, in a basket, and provide a variety of healthy toppings--low fat chili, cooked broccoli, lowfat or fat free melted cheese, FF sour cream, chopped chives, salsa, etc etc etc

Soups--WW's 0 pt vegetable soup and 1 pt chili, others in broth, not cream-based soups.

A favorite lunch of mine includes two Cooking Light recipes. If it sounds good - I'll post the actual recipes.

A fabulous Chicken Salad - it has apples, lite sour cream and a touch of cinnamon, which makes it SO good. I serve this with either pita bread or I buy a nice crunchy flatbread cracker (usually in the deli section) to serve with it.

And a great five fruit salad that's tossed with a touch of brown sugar and nutmeg (?) It just jazzes it up a bit so it's no the same ole fruit salad.

Those two things usually make a perfect lite lunch.

Please post those 2 recipes. They sound great and I'm always looking for new recipes.
My daughter just made a Rachel Ray chili made with ground chicken that was very good and healthy (teenagers even liked it!) She googled the recipe and found it.
