Happy April 1st! Were you expecting me to share some kind of awesome April Fools Day post today? Like Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting, a Bowl of Worms or Mini Bacon and Eggs? Well I really wanted to, but I’ve been more than a little pre-occupied over the past few days…
Get rid of the sugar, oil and cream cheese frosting in carrot cake and you’re left with a pretty healthy dessert. And that’s exactly what I’ve done here – got rid of all the unhealthy ingredients to create a dessert that’s still sweet and satisfying, but much lower in fat, sugar and calories. Plus, this cake only makes one (albeit rather generous!) portion, making it impossible to over-eat and it takes less than 5 minutes to make from start to finish, so you’ve got no excuses – no matter how hungry or busy you are!
How do you feel about brussels sprouts? I think they’re a love-hate vegetable. Not like people either love or hate them. More like people love to hate them! But me? I absolutely love brussels sprouts and serve them all-year-round! In December, I go into serious brussels-overdrive and pack them into almost every dish I possibly can. And I’m glad to see I’m not the only one – Jessica from How Sweet It Is has an amazing Brussels Sprouts Pizza and Brussels Sprouts Lasagna! Don’t they just look amazing?
Are you a chocoholic looking for a fall-inspired dessert? Then you’ve got to try these one bowl healthy pumpkin brownies! Made without any added fat, just a tiny bit of sugar and loads of delicious fall flavors, these rich, fudge-like, chocolatey brownies are going to be your new favorite dessert!
This year I decided to try something new, and that something new is green smoothies. I’m not really big on smoothies in general, so when it comes to a green smoothie recipe, it’s got to be seriously omg-wow-amazing in order for me to even consider drinking it – so you know this healthy smoothie recipe really is as amazing as it sounds!
