Savory Mushroom and Herb Steel Cut Oat Risotto

Let me start by saying this: I have never made risotto before.  Not with Arborio rice and definitely not with steel cut oats.  So I didn’t know what I was getting myself into with this dish.  Word on the street was that risotto was tough to make, and it took a looooong time.  So I prepped myself for a potentially tiring dish.  And guess what?  It wasn’t that bad!  Ok I’ll admit it, it takes a while to cook.  And does take some personal attention (talk about a needy dish).  But hard?  Not at all.  And oh so good.  Worth every minute!

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.
