Healthier Recipes

Lately I've been trying out some new recipes that are on the healthier side, and I'm ready to share them with you!

I'll start with some not-so-healthy recipes I made for girl's night a few weeks ago.

Recipe #135: Mississipi Sin Dip from Plain Chicken

This was a fun recipe that you bake inside a loaf of french bread and eat with chips.  It was delicious, and deliciously messy (sorry for the not-so-good-looking-pictures).

Recipe #136: Sarasota Lemonade from The Pampered Jes

This 'Lemonade' is a summery wine spritzer with moscato, sprite, raspberries, and pink lemonade. It is absolutely delicious, and so sweet! I love it!


Recipe # 137: Deviled Egg Dip from The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

This deviled egg dip is delicious and would be great for a party! Unfortunately, I didn't get to eat too much of it because I put it in the fridge and it was gone in two days...
Although this is marketed as Deviled Egg Dip, it's really just egg salad that you eat as a dip. It was a very interesting way to eat egg salad (one of our favorite foods!).


Recipe #138: Sliced Banana Chips from pinterest

To make these chips, you just slice a banana really thin, dip the pieces in lemon juice, and bake on 250 degrees for 2 hours, flip, then bake for another 2 hours. They are supposed to turn nice and crisp like chips.  After 3.5 hours, mine were gummy-like and absolutely DELICIOUS! They were so sweet and tasted like fruit snacks. YUM!


Recipe #139: Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche with a Brown Rice Crust from Crunch Rock 

This quiche was a healthy twist on another one of my favorite foods.  In this recipe, I used nonfat cheese, which made it so much healthier but also a little tasteless.  Once I added a little salt and pepper it was much better! I love that I can make a crust out of brown rice!!

Recipe #140: Banana Applesauce Muffins from FromAway

These muffins were so moist and delicious! Made with mashed up bananas and applesauce, they are a little healthier than the average muffin (3wwp+each).  They do still have sugar and flour in them, but they are absolutely delicious!

I tried one with a little peanut butter on it... even more delicious!


Recipe #141: Cucumber Tuna Fish Sandwich Sub inspired by SkinnyMob

I finally tried out a cucumber sub, which is a sandwich made with a cucumber instead of bread.  Mine was more of a cucumber boat, where I cut a cucumber in half and scooped out the inside, then filled it with tuna. It was so good and is most definitely one of my new favorite lunches! (3wwp+ with lite mayo).


Recipe #142: Hummus-filled Deviled Eggs from fitsugar

Make hard-boiled eggs, scoop out the yolk, fill with hummus. Healthy deviled eggs! Doesn't sit well in fridge without top overnight. Yumm!
