I'm Snack Girl and my website is devoted to becoming healthier. I create recipes, review food products, and support those on a healthy journey.
These healthy Christmas snacks will be ignored by most of my audience - and it is okay.
I can’t force feed you celery in December and I wouldn’t try. You cannot imagine the amount of butter that has passed through this house and we still have one week to the big day!
This turkey salad recipe is really the entry level of what you can do with all of that leftover turkey.
My first big idea with the inevitable after Thanksgiving was a Leftover Turkey Chili Recipe. I love this one because it is a white chili and everyone is surprised by how good this can be.
If you make my turkey breast in an oven bag, you might have some leftovers to deal with and you should make my leftover turkey chili recipe.
You can freeze them or you can use them up in all sorts of ways. Sandwiches, salads, turkey tetrazzini….zzzz….wait! I’m still blogging!
Healthy Thanksgiving desserts are pretty hard to find. The big favorite for Thanksgiving is pecan pie which is nowhere near the list of healthy choices.
I love pecan pie but I also love apples and lighter food after the feast that is Thanksgiving.
This is the only time of year that you can buy turkey breast. I don’t know why this is because you can always find it at the deli counter.
How many of us buy sliced turkey breast to make sandwiches? Turkey breast is one of those lean meats that nutritionists tell us to eat. It is famous for being low in fat, high in protein, and easy to serve.
This apple butter recipe is a major update from my last one. About 6 years ago, I posted a recipe using one cup of sugar.
A friend of mine recently had a heart incident and is avoiding all sugar. She told me that she bought apple butter that had no sugar added and I said, “Wait a minute! You can make it.”
This pumpkin lentil stew is unexpected. It is both comforting and vegan!
No offense to the vegans who read this website but many people do not conflate veganism and comfort - probably because vegans don’t eat cheese from animals (or ice cream).
Healthy Thanksgiving recipes are just as easy to make as the unhealthy ones.
It is really about omitting certain ingredients - right? Instead of sweet potatoes with marshmallows do a roasted butternut squash without marshmallows.
This roasted acorn squash is a breeze. We can all use a recipe that makes our lives easier.
I love acorn squash because of its color and shape. Doesn’t it look like it just landed from a spaceship?
This simple homemade apple pie filling will warm your body and heart.
I have seen jars of apple pie filling sold at specialty stores and I always thought that was a great idea. You can use it to pair with ice cream, on pancakes, or on its own for a treat.
