Christy's California Summer Chili

This chili was my first foray into doing a healthy makeover on a favorite family recipe. The first time I made it my husband couldn't believe how low in calories and fat it was, because it was as flavorful and filling as the before recipe. In fact, whenever we get a chili craving, this is our go-to recipe! It freezes well and is even better the next day.

While this is not a standard chili the way most of America thinks of it, it keeps the smoky, tomato-ey, spicyness we all love, makes a few heart-healthy swaps, and adds a ton of veggies to up our daily serving count.


This refreshing frozen treat is a take on one of my favorite sugury summer beverage: Horchata! A good instant coffee adds richness and makes this a great stand-in for the overly sweet frozen frappes served up at your neighborhood coffee shop. For a twist, substituting in one of the flavored Starbucks Via's and omitting the agave gives you a whole new flavor for the same calories!

Chestnut Celery Root Soup

Yummy winter soup with all the comfort of potato leek, but half the calories. Don't be fooled, a little of this soup goes a long way! My husband was happily surprised by how incredibly filling a bowl is! Healthfully adapted from a recipe received in a recipe exchange.
