What can I say, I’ve created the PERFECT appetizer!
This slightly spicy, low-cal dish is great for parties, lunches or just a quick snack on a summer day. I had a bunch of squashes and zucchini left over from our “southern party” last weekend, so I threw them together and created Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks!
To put a fun little spin on it, I sauteed the veggies in Balsamic Vinaigrette instead of oil and it came out GREAT.
Enjoy this fabulous low-cal snack!
I’m calling this beauty “classy cornbread” because of the adorable pink flowers I tossed in. My boyfriend Bryan picked them for me, I just couldn’t resist 🙂
Plus, I’m really into food-ography lately so it was perfect!
Seriously, so delicious! Bryan and I made cornbread for my best friend and I’s “Southern Style Hangout” yesterday. It was a big hit, and an awesome snack.
Jalapeno flavor; so spicy and SO addicting.
I like to tell myself they are healthier because they don’t have any Cholesterol or trans fat… but deep down inside I know they’re probably just as bad as lays.
I stick to a 80/20 diet which means 80% healthy and 20% what ever I want.
Kettle chips will definitely be taking up ALL of my 20% today haha!!
Has anyone tried any of the other flavors?
Shopping around in my neighborhood store, I came across this AWESOME medially of grapes and bought 2 boxes!!
Now all I need is a hot guy in a Toga with a huge leaf fan to feed them to me while sitting in a royal throne.
Hey, a girl can dream right?
I wonder how my boyfriend Bryan would feel about wearing a toga…
I can’t wait to use these flavors in all kinds of recipes, salads and smoothies this week 🙂
Who wouldn’t like 3 colors of grapes in one? Pure genius.
Come on guys, we’ve all been there. Hungry, in a hurry, and just want a quick snack.
This 3 ingredient ONE minute Caesar salad will put your greasy bag of Lana potato chips to shame any day! It’s easy to make and the whole thing cost me $5 to make. That $5 is good for at LEAST 6 salads whigh makes each salad less then $1 a piece! Yes, that evens out to be LESS THEN THE COST OF A BAG OF POTATO CHIPS.
Low-fat parmesan cheese
If you keep a head of lettuce and your favorite dressing in your fridge, you’ll never have an excuse to go near those Lays. Compare your mental sanity after eating both:
Lays potato chips: why did I just eat an entire bag of those? I’m full of empty calories that will only dehydrate me and make me crave more salt in an hour.
Caesar salad: Yay I’m full of healthy calories! I feel SO good about eating this guilt-free inexpensive and easy snack!
Choose salad. No excuses!
Corn is one of my favorite summer vegetables, because it’s easy to prepare (especially for a summer picnics), and tastes great on a hot summer day!
You can really play with the spices you use on your corn and customize it for your tastes buds. I kept it simple using pepper and oregeno, which really made my tongue happy. Sometimes I like to get a little spicy, so I’ll add a bit of cayenne pepper too.
- Sweet white corn
- Tin foil
What to do:
- Apply a thin layer of butter to your corn
- Add spices
- Wrap in tin foil
- Bake for 15 mins
Wrapped in tin foil^
Since I have a crazy busy schedule, I like to pre-prepare a few pieces of corn and bake them all at once. Then, the corns that I don’t eat, I kwwp them wrapped in the tin foil and put it in the fridge. When I’m ready to eat them, I pop one in the oven for only 5 mins, and it turns into a quick and easy snack!
Eating small healthy snacks between meals is a great way to get your metabolism up!
This half bagel took 2 minutes to throw together, and is the perfect mid-afternoon snack between lunch and dinner.
The sweetness of the all natural raspberry jelly, combined with the fresh blueberries will give you some more much needed energy (since it’s probably already worn off from lunch.)
1/2 FRESH BAGEL
1 tsp jelly
1 tsp cream cheese
1 hand ful of fresh blueberries
