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.
Healthy BBQ sides are not hard to make because of all the great summer produce.
All we need is a little push to get away from the potato salads, coleslaws, and pasta salads that are delicious but heavy. Most barbecues are featuring seasonal favorites such as hot dogs, hamburgers, and ribs.
This Greek salad dressing recipe is what you need for salads and marinades. I promise that you will never buy a bottle of dressing again.
Bottled Greek or Italian dressing rarely uses extra-virgin olive oil because it is expensive. You will see soy bean oil on the label. Also, because it is in a bottle - it is fine - but it isn’t fresh.
These healthy Fourth of July desserts are for those of us who those of us who enjoy a theme party.
Over the years, I have come up with a bunch of cute ideas to keep Independence Day both fun and healthy. Yes, you can have both.
This Beyond Meat Burger review is for those of us looking to changed it up. Some plant-based burger patties have been showing up at Burger King (and selling out).
What are they?
They are not your typical vegetarian substitute for meat like my Mushroom Lentil Burgers or my Portobello Burger.
Do you love red wine but want something lighter in the summer? You will adore this light sangria recipe.
The idea is to marinate slices of orange and apple in the wine with some sugar, lime juice, and orange liqueur. After it brews, you serve it mixed with club soda and cut the alcohol (and calories) in half.
Blueberry skillet cake is a dessert. I rarely feature desserts but this one deserves to be on Snack Girl.
Why? It is mostly blueberries!! You can use frozen blueberries or fresh (cut the baking time by 10 minutes with fresh).
Roasted vegetables tacos are for Taco Tuesday. You need to change it up sometimes.
Are these tacos as easy as meat tacos? No. I mean how can you beat browning meat and adding a flavoring packet? Too easy!
These summer squash recipes belong in your to-do list. It is time for squash.
Summer squash is so versatile! I suppose some would call it bland but it is cheap, easy to cook, and delicious. I eat it all summer long and then I switch to the winter squashes (butternut and acorn).
Waffle iron potato cakes are a replacement for baking. You don’t need a hot oven right now.
A couple of nights ago I was cooking dinner and my husband told me not to turn on the oven. It was 90 F outside so I understood his point.
Need a strawberry oatmeal muffins recipe right about now? Of course you do.
I have been craving muffins for weeks (also cookies, cake and brownies). My kids keep baking because they are bored. Oh man, it is bad around here.
