This soothing, creamy seafood chowder is practically a meal in itself. Ready in about 15 minutes, it’s a terrific choice for a busy weeknight dinner. Even better, it’s low in calories despite its rich flavour and is packed with protein. Round out the meal with a slice of whole grain bread, salad and an apple for dessert.
Bags of frozen mixed seafood are good for both you and your budget. Look for them in the freezer section at your supermarket. At about half the price of frozen shrimp, they’re a great buy for calorie counters (a 4-oz/112-g serving has 76 calories and 1 gram of fat).
