Ooey-Gooey Healthy Brownie (single serving, egg-free)

Blogged while hate watching The Walking Dead

DSC06120

It’s hard to eat healthy when you’ve got a crazy sweet tooth like I do. I’m always looking for alternatives and replacements to still be able to eat my favorite sweets without too many calories. I’m excited to share this healthy brownie recipe. It doesn’t have any oil or fat and instead is surprisingly high in protein (from cottage cheese).

Clay Ramekin

A million years ago, I bought a home fondue set that came with a clay ramekin. I wish I could remember where I bought it or even what it’s called, but I think this one comes pretty close to what I have. It’s a little pricey on Amazon, but I always see it at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s for much cheaper.

None of the ingredients should be hard to find. Odds are, if you’re used to eating mostly healthy meals, you’ll already have these items in your pantry.

I’m working on a large batch version of this which I hope to post later.

Enjoy!

NYC Food Hall Tour

DSC05411

There has been a recent boom in NYC of something known as a Food Hall. What is it? In reality, it’s just a glorified Food Court. There is an abundance of just about everything in NYC, with the exception of one very important thing: space. Because of the lack of space, our malls simply can’t fit food courts. So instead, we rename them Food Halls, jack up the prices, and invite only the hippest and hottest vendors to join. But what should you eat when there’s so many to choose from? I recently took on the painstaking task of travelling around these places and sampling the goodies that were there: you have to make sacrifices for your craft. Below is an overview of a few places I would recommend and some that were a bit disappointing.

Blogged while watching Chopped!

I’m so excited about my meal plan this week because I got some brand new Bento Boxes. It’s easier to plan meals because I get a visual of each compartment. Recipes are below.

Bon Appetit!

Homemade Lox (salmon)

 

031

Blogged while watching Grease Live! on Fox.

During a recent visit with my BFF (my mom, Sophia) I was treated to homemade (yes, homemade) lox. I was blown away by how delicious it was! I was even more blown away when she told me the 17 seconds she spent making it! So, I immediately went out and bought my own fillets and made it right at home. And it was just as delicious!

Sunday Funday Cooking:Couscous Crabcakes with Lite Slaw

009

Sundays are cooking days for me. If I don’t have anything else planned, I take the day to food shop and meal plan for the rest of the week. This is essential for healthy living because it eliminates any opportunities for weak moments. If I get home absolutely ravenous, there is always something available in the fridge. It’s always healthy, it’s already prepared, and it is delicious!

This Sunday was no exceptions. On average, I make about 7 dishes. Some turn out better than others and I wanted to share them with you.

Among what I made this week was

  • couscous crab cakes with a lite Cole Slaw,
  • turkey ham stuffed chicken roulettes with sauteed mushrooms and onions
  • succotash, and
  • RPM fruit punch.
