Eat Great, Lose Weight

Eat Great, Lose Weight

Like any teenager, my parent complains because I don't cook my own food. Trying to lose weight is hard, but if you make your own food it's easier to track your progress in the calorie counter. So I am looking for easy to make recipes that are healthy, great tasting and personalized for one person.

Cookbook creator says: Make it on a Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon and you have something to grab out of the fridge for a low calorie snack or have two for breakfast. At only 190 calories a serving, it's fast and lean.

Cookbook creator says: It's like a muffin but made out of eggs! Insanely lean with only 130 cal. per little muffin. Easy and fast to make and you can divide the recipe to only make two or three so you don't have to warm it up later in the week, ew...

Cookbook creator says: I love Quiche but it usually takes all day for my parent to make one and it's not good for you. But making it with this recipe makes it fast and enjoyable. You can even make mini personal quiches by cutting the ingredients.

Cookbook creator says: Like any teen, I love pizza. All kinds of pizza. And breakfast pizza was God's most amazing gift to us. And it is so versitile. You don't need to folow the recipe at all and still make a pizza. Find personal sized dough packets or use tortilla for a quick breakfast.

Sausage Egg Casserole (Low Carb)
Very Good 4.8/5
(42 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Casserole in a muffin. Crazy! But easy to make and you can divide the calories to make smaller portions or you can give some to family members. It's not good to keep eggs to long and they can be a pain to warm up anyway.

Apple Scones
Very Good 4.8/5
(13 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I love fruit and scones are great for breakfast, but usually they're loaded with calories. A scones recipe on here, Blueberry I believe, was 350 calories a scone. This one looks more like a pie, and is only 150 calories. Perfect.

Cookbook creator says: Oatmeal Oats are so boring on their own, I mean, who really wants to eat Oatmeal to lose weight as a teenager? Not I! So get your oatmeal along with some cheese (which I love!) and have a low calorie breakfast!

Cookbook creator says: Low fat syrup can be nasty. This syrup is low cal. and easy to put on low cal. pancakes or waffles for a great taste, and it's got fruit in it so there's one click on the Fruit meter you can push to start off the day.
