Chia Pats

I love these. They are easy to make, VERY healthy, low in calories and the recipe is versatile. Since a good friend shared this recipe with me, I always have a batch of Chia Pats in my fridge.

Here are some variations:

Mix in some raisins right before you scoop the batter onto the baking sheet.

Make them a little more "gingersnappy" by adding 1/2 tsp more cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp ground cloves. (add 2 tbsp water if you do this)

Instead of cinnamon, add 2 Tbsp baking cocoa powder (add 2 tbsp water if you do this).

Make "Whoopie Pies" by mixing some whipped cream cheese, vanilla and stevia. Use about 1 tbsp as filling between two Chia Pats.

Shiritake Vegetable Stir Fry

Shiritake noodles are INCREDIBLY low in calories, so this makes for a very nice, filling lo-cal lunch or dinner. They have a very strange, rubbery consistency if boiled like regular noodles, so I thought I'd stir fry them to see if that helps. It did! They are like normal noodles when stir fried. My grocery store sells them in the refrigerated tofu department. They come in a bag, packaged in water.

By the way, I don't know if this actually qualifies as "vegetarian," with the egg and fish sauce, but the site didn't give me any other "no meat" options.

Yummy Boston Cream Pie Yogurt

This is my favorite way to make a super yummy snack/dessert with very little work and a reasonably low number of calories
