Skinny Coconut Curry

I LOVE curries.  Like… could eat them daily.  But unfortunately they are typically made with high saturated fat creams and/or coconut milks.  This not only bumps up the artery clogging saturated fats in the dish, but the calories too!  So for years (no joke) I have pondered how to make and curry dish that gave me that same creaminess and coconutty flavor, but none of the saturated fats and calories.  And guess what… I found it!  This dish uses high protein, low saturated fat and calorie Greek yogurt for the creaminess and coconut extract for an almost NO calorie coconut flavor.  “Whaaaaaaaaaaaat??  Is this real life, Lauren?”  Yes friends, this is real life.  Real curry life.  Real low calorie, low saturated fat curry life.  And welcome to it.

Grilled Pineapple Buddha Bowl

Filled with whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins, there’s nothing not to like!  I love that this one included grilled pineapple- a food which doesn’t appear in my diet nearly enough.

Creamy Ginger Coconut Kale Zucchini Spaghetti

his recipe is creamy.  And gluten free.  And vegan (assuming you don’t throw a big runny egg or chicken on top like I did haha).  And, most importantly, it’s DELICIOUS.  Like lick the bowl good.  I got this recipe from Inspiralized and made a few Lauren, RD tweaks to it.  I love that she threw some green peas in for a little extra vegetable based protein punch.  This is also a whole new take on kale than I had ever tried.

Cauliflower Biscuits

Happy Food Allergy Awareness week! In honor of this week, I decided to make some wheat free, dairy free biscuits.  And guess what?  They were AMAZING.  And they actually hold together when you pick them up!  Not all of the cauliflower based recipes that I have made can say that…Not only are these biscuits allergy friendly (minus those with egg allergies), but they are low calorie and high fiber!  I call that a win-win.
