Recipes I've Shared:
A recipe I adapted from an awesome blog. Made a few swaps to reduce the sugar, and they are amazing!!! See bottom of this recipe for the original blog post.
A delicious spin on a traditional fall dessert. The filling and crust have been revamped for an amazingly nutritious slice of yum!
A new spin on a traditionally high fat, high sugar classic. This recipe utilizes TVP(textured vegetable protein) to lower the carb count, but provides that satisfying crunch you love about a great granola!!
Missing granola? Missing CRUNCH? This is an excellent base recipe that you can alter and add to, to suit your taste! And it's C-R-U-N-C-H-Y!!!
An absolutely delicious way to satisfy your craving for a traditionally heavy, fat-laden italian favorite. Top spaghetti squash with this sauce for a low carb, delicious way to squelch that Italian craving!
Great swap for ice cream or fro-yo
Almond Butter is so much cheaper when you make it at home. It's so easy, wholesome, and amazingly delicious!!! The method I use produces an almond butter that does not require stirring due to oil separation, and stays smooth and spreadable even straight out of the fridge!!
This is so amazing! I eat this for breakfast all the time! Feel free to add in some mini chocolate chips or walnuts for a little extra indulgence :-)
A recipe I found on Pinterest, that is delish!! Not exactly light, but no cream cheese! Could easily be lightened up with WW flour, splenda, light sour cream, and light butter. Original recipe posted here!
No added sugar, virtually fat free! A great switch up to toast or banana bread.
Ca-RAZY as it sounds, this is the most decadent, creamy, rich pie you will ever taste!! I was totally skeptical when I was making it. But I PROMISE, you will NOT be disappointed.. Serve it to someone who isn't into "health food" and get their take on it :-)
A make ahead refrigerator cereal. Perfect for a grab and go morning!
This is for half a batch of dip. Feel free to double the ingredients and make a big batch of it! It won't last long.. :-) A fun and lighter way to have your cake(batter!) and eat it too!!
Fresh turkey salad recipe to stuff inside pitas, on crackers, or on top of fresh greens. Feel free to play with the ingredients!!!
Super fudgy and chewy... Not your standard brownie, but a good swap to satisfy your chocolatey sweet tooth
VERY versatile recipe! Experiment with different extracts and fruits to find your favorite combo! Nutritious cool and creamy breakfast that you can grab and go!
A natural nut butter, sweetened with the cocoa roast almonds. And unlike most natural nut butters that require refrigeration, this one does not have to sit out to soften before you can spread it!
Apples and peanut butter, baked into a heart healthy oatmeal cake. NO butter, NO white flour!
Came across this recipe on a site called Dashing Dish. These are AMAZING!!!
This is a delicious recipe I came across while trying to satisfy a blueberry craving. And the serving size is quite generous! So if you must indulge, do it here :-)
A light refreshing salad of fresh summer veggies! Add any that appeal to your taste buds!
Great alternative to mashed potatoes. Warm, creamy, light side dish to compliment a healthy "comfort food" meal..
Summer's sweet bounty of fresh strawberries, turned into your morning breakfast condiment, ice cream topper, or anything else you need a light sweet touch to!
A light, refreshing soup, lightened up. Great start to any meal..
Light refreshing chicken salad... Perfect balance of textures and flavors.
I calculated the nutritional value for this version with 3oz of papaya and 1oz of strawberries( my favorite!) but feel free to add in whatever your favorite fruits are!!!
Sounds like an odd combo, but amazingly delicious!!
One word... Yum....
This amazingly creamy cheesecake is sure to satisfy that craving for the decadent high calorie dessert we all dream about... But without all the guilt! Pair it with light whipped cream or a small scoop of sugar free vanilla ice cream for a sweet reward!
If you must induldge, do it with this cookie... Rich, dark, gooey chocolate combined with a burst of sweet tartness from the pomegranate make this an irrestible treat...
Same flavor as the original, but with a punch of protein, and less fat!
Why not get a good dose of fiber in your party foods?? Swap out plain old Chex cereal with cereals higher in fiber, and reduce the empty calories and blood sugar spikes. Feel free to add nuts, pretzels, or any other of your favorite party mix ingredients!
Fun twist on traditional hummus. Great substitute protein, low fat, and a good dose of fiber. Makes a great sandwich spread, or goes great on pita bread!
A simple hummus recipe that swaps out tahini (and the fat that comes with it) with a surprising ingredient that creates a creamy, flavorful, protein packed veggie dip or sandwich spread.
Sounds a little strange, but if you like coffee, you will love this! Great post workout or breakfast smoothie. Packed with protein and potassium! I use a Ninja blender to make this and it comes out so smooth and creamy!!! By the way, you don't even taste the spinach!!!
An awesome low fat/low cal way to satisfy that chocolate craving!!! The nutritional value is calculated with the sliced almonds. So leaving them out will lower the calorie count even more!
