Please share one healthy treat recipe you found and want to try, or one you already like. It could be a snack or a dessert, but something treat-ish. We deserve treats, just need to appreciate healthy ones! Smiley

Lol, you KNOW I've got plenty of these to share!  I ate 3 of my very healthy spiced apple muffins today (I did a lot of exercise though so I defo deserved them!) and adore them so will share the recipe with all tomorrow, as well as the fat-free tea brack which I'm going to make tomorrow :-)

Ooh! Ooh! Pick me!

I haven't tried these out yet, because our avocados aren't ready to harvest yet this year, but I checked on them today, and they're growing. It sounds soooo good, and way better for you than using all mayonnaise and mustard. I would probably try to sub in more avo and take out the mayo altogether.

Avocado Deviled Eggs: Makes 12 servings.

Ingredients:

6 hard boiled eggs
1 medium avocado, diced small
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Salt to taste

Directions:

Cut boiled eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out yolks. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in diced avocados, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to taste. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne or fresh, chopped parsley.

Oh man, those both sound delicious! I love wasabi in my deviled eggs and bet that would be good in the avo eggs too!

You had me at "chocolate raspberry!"

I love these and other similar creations that are basically microwaved muffins. Gluten free and lots of different flavor options.

Microwaved low cal protein muffins.

    2 Egg whites (**If using liquid egg whites use 1/2 cup and add 20 calories)
    1/4 cup pumpkin (3 T applesauce or other starchy carb works well too!)
    2 T coconut flour* (1 T also works, and results in 40 fewer calories)
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    stevia or other granular sweetener to taste
    1 T. cocoa powder (Hershey's Special dark cocoa is best!)

Spray a microwavable bowl with Pam. Mix everything well in bowl and then microwave for 2:30 to 4 minutes, depending on your microwave.

And tons of alternatives on the buckwheat bake (scroll down a bit)

And yes, buckwheat has a terrible name, since it's not really wheat and it's gluten free!

I DID IT! I completed my first day of completing 5 goals - wowza.

Tonight I ate leftover pasta with homemade red sauce and spicy chicken sausage and cooked a broccoli and spinach fritatta to eat tomorrow for lunch. I'm going out for pho with a friend for dinner, so even though it takes up one of my eat out days, it will be pretty healthy, especially because I get the veggie kind.

One of my favorite snacks (besides popcorn!) is kale chips! Take any kind or curly-looking kale, wash and DRY WELL. Toss in a tiny bit of oil and salt, lay in a single layer on a cookie sheet and cook in a 275 degree oven until crunchy about 20-25 minutes.

You can flavor the chips however you want! I like olive oil, salt, and pepper or sesame oil with a little tamari and some sesame seeds sprinkled over. I've been meaning to try them with curry salt too - yum!

The kale chips and deviled eggs sound amazing!

One of my favorite snacks is salsa! I know the tortilla chips aren't the most healthy companion, but you can get low-salt, low-fat ones and stick to having only a handful at a time....if you have the willpower Cheesy

My favorite salsa recipe is very easy:
1 can diced tomatoes (or two large tomatoes chopped + a can of tomato juice)
3-4 skinny green onions, chopped
(some chopped white onions if you are a big onion-lover)
small bunch of cilantro, chopped
dash of red pepper seeds
salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder to taste.

This isn't really a hot and spicy salsa, but you could certainly make it that way if you wanted. I also make an onion-free version for when I come home between teaching students for 30 minutes or so--it just involves putting a can of Trader Joe's organic unsalted plum tomatoes into the food processor until chopped up but not completely smooth, chopping some cilantro, and adding a few spices. Easy snack and I don't cause my students to pass out with my gross breath!

Need to stay on top of my water goal...also made some chicken and cheese tortilla wraps for freezing and eating when I get home late from work. Yum!

I just want to let you all know that your talk about quinoa a while back, and how yummy it was piqued my interest. So today I bought some at the store. I can't wait to try it out and make these quinoa patties I found a recipe for. They seem really versatile (add whatever veggies and spices you want, topped but whatever sauce or avocado or whatever your want), so I feel like I could eat them differently every week and still be eating healthy. I was going to try it out tonight, but then I got caught up making a container for our new compost pile (to keep the dogs out of it), and I'm going out to birthday dinner tonight. Maybe tomorrow... I'll post and let you all know how to it turns out!

I want to thank you all, also, for inspiring me to try new foods. I've definitely been a picky eater my whole life, but it is severely compounded by the fact that I don't like trying new things. But you all make all of this food sound so YUMMY that I just have to at least try it! Add to that me cooking in the kitchen, and you guys have been amazing at inspiring me to get out of my lazy, close-minded rut and try something new!

Mmm, salsa! If you take corn tortillas and put them between paper towels (to absorb the moisture) you can microwave for a minute or two and get awesome crunchy "chips."  Of course you could just crisp them in a pan or in the oven too, but the microwave works for when you need chips NOW! Cheesy

Yay for trying new things elliot_anne!

I'm so glad that my nephews are good eaters, although today I was kinda sad when my 3 yo nephew took half of my raw red bell pepper and declared it "Nummy! My Favorite!"  No! My favorite, kid! Now I have to share.
