Light and Airy Tofu Tacos

We know, we know. When tofu’s in a recipe, it’s usually bland and has the consistency of soaked cardboard. However, we’ve finally found a recipe which includes tofu that actually tastes good! These tacos are a wonderful meatless way to enjoy some delicious Tex-Mex flavor without piling on the calories. Serve these with some low-fat cheese, Greek yogurt, and freshly prepared guacamole on the side for a surprisingly healthy meal idea. If you’re feeling like making it a first atmosphere, you can prepare some whole fruit margaritas and really get the party started!

No Comments | Written on February 13, 2015 at 9:09 am , by

Comfort food has a nasty reputation for being unhealthy. It doesn’t have to be that way, we say! Here’s a perfectly hearty winter soup recipe that’s low calorie, low sodium, and meatless. How’s that for a triple threat? We love to serve this with a crusty Caprese panini on the side when the weather gets Arctic. Even if you don’t like beets, we think this soup might change your mind, as their flavor is a sweet subtlety in the dish.

Dark Chocolate Covered Sugar-Free Almond Brittle

No Comments | Written on January 16, 2015 at 12:00 am , by

Yes, you read that right. We took all the deliciousness you’ve come to know and love from some of the best indulgent desserts and made it healthier. BUT we didn’t sacrifice taste! This sweet treat truly tastes like a famous candy recipe you can make at home. It’s such a wonderful combination of sweet, salty, and bitter. We even like to make this recipe as a party favor for our dinner parties and hand out small bags.

Try different versions of the recipe. If you feel like indulging, dip in a milk chocolate ganache and top with coconut while the chocolate is drying. You can even make a swirled dip by melting peanut butter chips with the chocolate chips. As for the almonds used, we’ve also tried this recipe using peanuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts. All of the variations came out delicious, with their own unique flavors.

Light and Cheesy Fried Jalapeño Medallions

No Comments | Written on January 13, 2015 at 10:10 am , by

Jalapeño poppers are one of our favorite classic appetizer recipes. However, they are notorious for being calorie bombs. Sure, we could tell you to stuff the peppers with veggies, oven-fry instead of deep fry, or just not eat them all together. But that’s not what we want to do.

This recipe captures all the flavor you love from the original jalapeno popper recipe, and strips away the guilt. With a light tempura batter and a hint of cheese, these are perfect for parties. Yes, you can even enjoy these with a ranch dressing on the side!

Chinese food doesn’t just have to be something you order in when things are hectic or you’ve spent a long day at the office. The recipes are surprisingly simple to prepare, and come out tasting like they came from the place down the block. This Kung Pao Chicken Stir-Fry makes a wonderful main course, and one of our favorite ways to enjoy this quick Asian recipe is by enjoying it in lettuce wrap form!
