    I'm planning a dinner for my friends and family (approx 10 of us). I'm making shrimp, and halibut for those "meat eaters", but need a good alternative for my bro and myself, who are both vegetarian. I hate making "special" food for myself, so I was looking for an entree that would go well with the seafood theme and would be fairly easy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I found a good recipe that is really delicious:

    Black Bean and Couscous Salad (makes 10 servings)

    1 cup uncooked couscous
    1 1/4 cups broth
    3 T. olive oil
    2 T. lime juice
    1 tsp. red wine vinegar
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    4-8 green onions, chopped
    1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
    2 15 oz. cans black beans, drained
    1-2 chopped tomatoes
    salt and pepper to taste

    Bring broth to a boil and stir in couscous. Cover pot and remove from heat -- let stand 5 min. In a lg. bowl, whisk oil, lime juice, vinegar and cumin together. Add onions, peppers, cilantro, corn, beans and tomatoes -- toss to coat. Fluff couscous well, and mix with vegetables. Season with salt and ppeper to taste. Serve at once or refrigerate one day ahead.

    Each serving is 3 points -- so you could easily have 2 portions and make it a substantial serving for only 6 points.
    Things I'm Most Looking Forward To:
    No more back fat!
    More E-N-E-R-G-Y!
    Buying stylish, not oversized clothes
    Packing smaller clothes
    Living long enough to see my grandchildren grow up
    Having a stable wardrobe
    Ability to handle cravings
    The END of binging!
    A healthier me!
