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.
Mexican zucchini boats are for those that love burritos but not burrito tummy. You know what I am talking about!
The burrito sits in your belly and you moan, “How did I eat the whole thing?”
These boats are like burritos without the moaning. You use zucchini - which is great replacement for foods like pasta - check out pasta and zucchini recipe and baked zucchini lasagna.

My daughter thinks these banana oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies should be called “bites” instead of cookies.
I know what she is saying because this recipe doesn’t use the creamed butter and sugar that you find in the regular definition of “cookie”. But, if you can convince yourself that this healthy alternative is an actual cookie - you are set!
Every once in a while I deviate from healthy eating into other health subjects. This book, The ICU Guide for Families by Dr. Lara Goitien, caught my eye because I think it is an important subject and I happen to know the author.
Low calorie instant pot recipes are hard to find. Why? Because the Instant Pot is great for meaty stews and ribs.
I have made decadent food in my Instant Pot - a large amount of jerk chicken wings turned out heavenly - but I try not to cook this way on a daily basis.
Are you looking for the best vegetarian chili? Of course you are! Who wants to settle for second best?
I luv chili and make it a lot during the winter. It is my go-to meal on a snowy day to heat myself from the inside out. My former favorite chili recipes include chili with cocoa powder and slow cooker quinoa chili. The chili with cocoa powder is made with beef and it is really good.
This healthy baked chicken recipe is for all the haters out there who don’t believe you can do anything with skinless chicken breast.
I used to think the same thing until I began working on it for my WW members. Hey, chicken breast without skin is zero points on Blue and Purple! You should try it.
Here we go again! 2022 brings us another update to WW (formerly Weight Watchers).
WW has cancelled the Blue, Purple, and Green plans and now there is only PersonalPoints.
I have been covering WW for years now because so many of my readers are members. You guys love it (hate it) - learn from it - and many of you wish they would stop with the updates.
Are you tired of asking yourself, "What am I going to make for dinner?"
My cookie consumption reached new highs over the holidays and I am looking for solutions. My friend, Kristen, came up with one that works -Slender Kitchen Meal Plans.
