Healthy Recipes

Hello!
 
Here are the new healthy recipes I tried this month. :-D
 
Bacon Ranch Pea Salad - You can use turkey bacon, fat-free or low-fat ranch and cheddar cheese to make it healthier.
Simple Shrimp and Guacamole Tostadas - You can use fat-free or low-fat cheddar instead to make it healthier.
Baked Eggplant Parmesan - I suggest using Prego's Tomato, Onion and Garlic spaghetti sauce. Again, you can you fat-free or low-fat mozzarella to make it healthier. Also, watch your eggplant because that cooking time was a little too much for mine.
Fiesta Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette - Eat within the first day or two because the olive oil becomes congealed.
 
Here's a super easy, healthy and yummy snack I discovered this month:
 
Apple (I like Gala or Fuji)
Natural PB
Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Slivered Almonds (optional)
 
Slice apple, top slices with natural PB, sprinkle on some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and top with slivered almonds if desired.
 
Also, I tried this salad in a local restaurant and LOVED it. I have been making it at home at least once a week. It makes two regular salads or one really big salad:
 
Bag of spring mix lettuce
A piece of sliced grilled chicken - I  use a bag of Tyson pre-cooked grilled chicken for this salad
Glazed pecans, reduced-fat feta and dried cranberries to taste
Balsamic Vinaigrette to your liking - I make my own but I don't measure it. I just mix some really good and aged balsamic, extra virgin olive oil and a pack of Truvia together.
 
Good eats,
