Eat Low-Fat Food

Hi! I'm a mom of 2 and I love tasty (and fatty) food (Really, who doesn't?)! I own my love for the lards of life, but I budget my fats daily or else I easily overspend. By living a low-fat lifestyle, I hope to develop super powers (or something comparable would suite me just fine). At the very least, I hope my cholesterol levels will be thanking me as I gracefully progress through the ages and stages of life. Follow me on my eating journey to a healthier lifestyle through delicious low-fat food.

Summertime Smoothie Pops

Fruit and yogurt smoothies make a delicious and healthy breakfast, but they also make a fantastic, healthy, summertime treat!  Just pour any left over smoothie into inexpensive popsicle molds, I found mine at the dollar store, and freeze them!  Voila!  Summertime smoothie pops!
This morning's breakfast smoothie had Nonfat Greek yogurt, low-fat vanilla yogurt, frozen cherries and berries, one super ripe banana, some leftover cantaloupe, old-fashioned oats, and water.  We're talking fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals galore!  Don't you love it when healthy tastes good?

Asian Salad Bar & Potstickers

Homegrown lettuce and cilantro freshly picked from my grandparents garden was the star of tonight's summer meal.
In addition to the garden-fresh lettuce, our Asian salad bar featured Mandarin oranges, sliced tomatoes, thinly sliced carrots, sliced baby yellow peppers, fresh garden cilantro, sunflower seeds, roasted salted almonds, and chow mein noodles, with savory potstickers on the side. Everyone in our family got to assemble their own salads with the amount of toppings they desired. The salad dressing is a low-fat version of our favorite Brianna's poppyseed salad dressing. Her salad dressing is 14 g of fat per serving! We cut that in half by mixing it with nonfat Greek yogurt, a dash of salt and onion powder. It was sweet and tangy and delicious!  

What are your favorite healthy summer meals?
