Lowfat Spinach Dip

This dip is so simple, yet so tasty. Not only that, but it punches a mean amount of nutrition as it is made from simple, whole food ingredients!

Better than Bisquick

I have to admit I am often tempted by shortcuts like boxes of Bisquick. The most frustrating part of this is that often messing around with a boxed shortcut like this leads to me eating things I normally wouldn’t.

I found this great recipe for a Bisquick like mix, and used it tonight!

Taco Seasoning

Ever looked at the ingredients on a packet of taco seasoning?

“corn starch, yellow corn flour. Partially hydrogenated soybean oil, silicon dioxide (anticaking agent), sunflower and/or cottonseed oil, natural flavor, ethoxyquin (preservative).”  Seriously? Why are these things in my seasoning!?

 

With this month’s Blogger Recipe Challenge we have all been trying our hand at cleaning eating. Here is how I make my tacos instead of using a packet full of random “stuff”.

Easy Oven Fries

One of my guilty pleasures is a big pile of potato. Doesn’t matter if they are fries, tots, or a pile of mashed potatoes!

With this month’s clean eating challenge I decided to make my own fries instead of opening a bag of frozen ones the other day, and boy were they worth the few extra steps!

To make enough fries for 2-3 people you will need:

  • 2 Large Russet Potatoes (scrubbed VERY clean)
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt

Cut your potato into strips. Toss with the oil and salt. Put into the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 mins. The oven will steam, it’s nothing to worry about!

Enjoy your crispy fries without guilt!

Homemade Lemonade

With the hot summer months upon us I can’t think of a more refreshing thing than a glass of ice cold lemonade after spending some time in the hot sun.

This month’s Blogger Recipe Challenge theme has been Clean Eating, so I decided to give lemonade from scratch a try. While I do use white sugar this is still miles cleaner than anything that comes out of a container, in powder or frozen!

This month the bloggers of the Blogger Recipe Challenge were amazingly fortunate to work with Peanut Butter & Co, with each of us being sent two jars to create a recipe that pairs two soul-mates – chocolate and peanut butter. 1781113_10101535234624604_9063674159505766142_o

My first challenge of course was explaining to the peanut butter connoisseur in our home that unfortunately he would not be reviewing this product. He was unimpressed.
