Zucchini Pasta alla Carbonara

Carbonara sauce is creamy and delicious, but not so friendly on your hips. I decided to change that. You can have the taste and the healthy aspect all in one. I chose not to incorporate the egg yolk into the dish because I believe you can still get the same flavor here. The below recipe…

Baked Zucchini Chips

I saw these chips in the store and when I looked on the label they were full of fat and calories. I thought I could do a much better job! In addition, the recipe was so simple that I wouldn’t mind making them multiple times. The fun part is you can add whatever seasoning you…

Dill Dijon Crusted Halibut

Craving a delicious, yet healthy seafood dish? You found it! I love cooking halibut because it is a nice flaky white fish that does not fall apart easily. It usually stays intact.ย When you cook it, the flakes of halibut become salty from the dijon and bitter from the dill that I used as the crust….

Flourless Chai Pancakes

This recipe is similar to my post on Banana Pancakes. This one just has more spice. I prefer not to have the same breakfast every morning, so pancakes work well since you can change the flavors from time to time. You will need: 2 egg whites 1 mashed banana 1/2 tbsp baking powder 1/2 tbsp…

Cheesecake Oatmeal Pancakes

Dessert for breakfast?? These are flourless pancakes made with oats and egg whites, topped with a light cheesecake mixture. I have a slight obsession with cheesecake, so if I can sneak cheesecake into a recipe I will. For those of you who know me, you know cheesecake is one of my weaknesses. I love peanut…

Loaded Baked Potato Crepe (Flourless)

I love fluffy egg whites. I came across the recipe by accident one day attempting to make an omelet with potatoes. I couldn’t understand why the omelet was much thinner and delicate than usual. I realized that the starch (sweet potato, rustic potato, butternut squash, pumpkin) acts as flour and changes the chemical composition of…

Creamy Spinach Zucchini Roll Ups

This is an easy and light afternoon snack. Usually around 3pm I feel the afternoon “low.” This nutrient packed snack will make you feel alive and energized in no time. There are only 3 ingredients so it is easy to make at work or take on the go. 1 cup cooked spinach 3 laughing cow…

Roasted Red Pepper & Corn Grilled Chicken Boats

Wheat-less Wednesday is upon us, which means NO bread today! I love roasted red peppers on a sandwich, so this recipe does the trick. We all have busy work schedules so you can prepare the ingredients at home and assemble them at your office. I cooked the roasted red peppers on the grill the night…

Sweet Strawberry Oat Jar

I like to call this the “Commuter Special.” If you commute to work and need to grab breakfast on the “Go” in the morning, this is for you. I get ready in the morning, grab a jar of oatmeal from my fridge and I’m on my way. Once I get onto my LIRR train, I…

Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal Stuffed Apples

If you cannot tell by now, I am obsessed with breakfast! I was craving apple cinnamon oatmeal and thought it may be fun to eat the oats straight out of the apple. When you bake an apple it starts to get soft in the middle and the natural juices start to pour out. When you…

No-Bake Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

I had these bars years ago while in sleep away camp. I always wondered how they were made. I took a chance and made them with my own version. They were even better than I remembered. You will need: 2 cups rice krispies cereal 2 cups peanut butter 2 cups powdered sugar 1 ย 1/4 sticks…
