Fiddling around in the kitchen, I was looking for a protein rich snack prior to working out. This sandwich was the result and seemed worth posting. If you think it sounds strange consider the delicious and popular appetizer of baked brie in puff pastry and dried fruit. This is a deconstructed and reconstructed version for one. My version used reduced fat ingredients, but you can use the full fat versions if you like.
Guilt-free snack! These chips are made without any fat. For attractive circular chips, look for sweet potatoes that are round rather than long. I think these are even yummier than regular potato chips...
These are addictive little snacks. Crunchy and flavorful BUT actually good for you too! The spicier you get these the better imho! Plus, spicy foods are supposed to increase your metabolism! A reviewer said these made their mouth dry- Guess they might also increase my water intake! :) Make sure to get them good and dry before baking and they will cook more quickly.
Yummy, healthy holiday cookies featuring three types of seeds, oats and just a little butter.
I really liked these and think they make a great addition to the holiday cookie platter.
I think adding some cinnamon or other warm winter spices would make these even more seasonal.
This gluten-free trail mix recipe is convenient, plenty filling and nutritious to boot. The dried cranberries are rich in simple carbohydrates –much needed energy when exercising, the macadamia nuts have protein, which slows down the aforementioned carbs and makes this mix stick to your gut and the chocodrops are packed with the anti-oxidants found in dark chocolate.

Using the correct product it makes a lovely pudding pie filling. If you are unsure of tofu or have not worked with it or want to try it, please feel free to visit our Vegetarian forum on zaar. You will get some wonderful information
A great snack for when you want something salty and delicious but don't want the load of calories that normally comes with crispy snacks. Even those not watching thier caloric intake will love these so make a big batch. feel free to experiment with different seasonings. Garlic, cayenne, Italian blends and lemon pepper are some suggestions. ***note*** If you want larger chips use a japanese daikon radish. The taste and texture will be the same.
A healthier and lower calorie alternative to potato chips and the fancy veggie chips available because these are not fried! These beet chips make a wonderful (and pretty!) snack. Good for packing in a lunch, serving at parties or just nibbling on. These are chips you can feel GOOD about eating. :)
This is a wonderfully simple dessert or snack. The combination of rose water and hazelnut extract is often overlooked, and this is a nice way to try it out with complimentary ingredients. It is also a good recipe for diabetics and hypoglycemics- I am the latter- and this is one of the few dessert experiments I have tried that satisfies my sweet tooth with a small helping, is completely healthy, and doesn't give me a sugar high or low afterward. Start with 1 tbsp. agave syrup and 1/2 tsp. hazelnut extract until you determine your taste preference. I recommend organic for all these ingredients, if possible, especially the cottage cheese.
Delicious pudding in minutes, with all natural ingredients! I just started looking into the Raw Food Movement, but I've been trying to avoid highly processed foods for a while now. Standard pudding is on of the worst offenders, where processed foods are concerned. Raw Foodists make pudding using bananas or avocados for base. I've tried both, but I prefer the banana "puddings."
There's something irresistible about the salty, slightly rubbery texture of halloumi cheese. In this very simple recipe, the cheese is simply sliced and fried with caraway seeds. It's great with salad, or as part of a meze table.
From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. Adapted from a Jewish dessert. "It is a Sephardic pudding (alternately called prehito, moustrahana, and belila) that is common among the Jews of Turkey, who serve it to celebrate the fall holiday of Sukkot." "This dessert cooks in a flash and can be served warm or chilled. Leftovers make a delicious breakfast."
A delicious, elegant, and HEALTHY dessert to serve to your family or friends. Your dinner party guests will be impressed with the appearance of this special dish. Little do they know how easy it was to make! (Cooking time includes cooling time.)
