Low Calorie Recipes
Delicious and healthy, this low calorie chicken fried rice is only 133 calories per serving! Recently, I found a bag of cauliflower crumbles in the produce department. This is different than the riced cauliflower you find in the freezer section. This one from Green Giant and had “fried rice” on the label, and came with some chopped carrots, onion, broccoli and the cauliflower. All chopped up into the perfect size for Fried Rice. All I did with this bag of fried rice cauliflower crumbles was add some chicken. I used thighs, but for a lower fat, and lower calorie version
This delicious low calorie spaghetti squash with chicken recipe is a staple at my house. Not only does this low calorie recipe fill you up, but it’s so delicious you’ll want to eat it every day! It’s a perfect meal for one person, or for a family if you want to make it for dinner. Make spaghetti squash soft, not crunchy! Forever I’ve been cooking spaghetti squash the same way. I would cut the spaghetti squash in half. Scoop out the seeds. Turn each side upside down in a cake pan. Then, I baked it at 350 till it was
A 1200 calorie diet may not be easy to stick to. But, when you are short and have a low resting metabolic rate, 1200 calories may be the only way to keep your weight in maintenance.

I’ve been on a journey to find the tastiest healthy desserts under 100 calories. That’s why these white chocolate strawberries are PERFECT! Only 63 calories, if you can eat just one! These white chocolate strawberries are not only tasty, low calorie, and healthy, but they are super easy to make. The trick is to use real melting chocolate for dipping. Whenever I try to use chocolate chips meant for cookies, it never turns out. Any craft store or grocery store that sells cake and candy supplies should have these Wilton brand melts, or another brand. Then, I try to find
If you are like me and want more protein, but also want more dessert, you must try this healthy protein ice cream! It just has two ingredients. Protein powder and frozen bananas. I drizzled some almond butter on top for flavor, but that is totally optional! To make this ice cream, I first froze a few bananas. I peeled them, cut them in half, and put them in a ziploc bag. After 1 day in the freezer, I took out one of the bananas, and threw it in my mini cuisinart with a scoop of protein powder. That’s it! No
A few simple swaps changed this indulgent egg salad sandwich, into a healthy egg salad sandwich! If you love egg salad, you’ll love this healthy version. I got the basics of this recipe from the Body for Life Cookbook, but made a few changes to make it my own! To healthify this healthy egg salad sandwich I used: Fat free mayo I used LOW CALORIE/ LOW CARB bread, Dave’s Killer bread, Powerseed, thin cut. I used one slice of bread, making it an open faced sandwich, rather than two slices of bread. I weighed my avocado so it didn’t add
