Try making a healthy version of an indulgent food--Rutabaga fries!

I got a recipe off the internet for "rutabaga fries" (yes the waxy vegetable, easy to peel!)...1/3 the carbs of a potato, and 1/2 the fat! Plus, you can slice them similar to McD's fries (not that I crave them anymore, but such a treat to have them look that way!) They are also only "fries" in name...

Cheese, avocado, chili topping

Mix together a Lauging Cow cheese wedge with a sliver of avocado and just a touch of chili garlic sauce for a satisfying and tasty topping. I've put it on an english muffin and in my omelet. I felt like I was eating something fattening. Hope you like it. :)

Healthy Homemade French/Catalina Dressing

Mix 3/4 portions of Greek yogurt with 1/4 portion of Spicy Low Sodium V-8 juice (or just enough to thin as desired) for a low cal/low sodium red salad dressing. Use for salad, or for a chicken/fish marinade or sauce. V-8 is always in my refrigerator for a quick veggie fix, anyhow!

Instead of boiling eggs, heat the oven to 325 and put the eggs in a cupcake pan and bake for 25-30 mins. The shells come off amazing. I saw this on pinterest and had to try it and it worked like a charm! Best thing I found on pinterest.

A Lighter and Healthier Mac and Cheese

I LOVE Mac and Cheese but avoid it as it is a calorie disaster and not all that nutritious...however I recently made a lighter and healthier version that was pretty darn good. I used 1/2 the normal amount of pasta and instead substituted cauliflower. Delicious!
