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 vanilla meringue cookie recipe will win your heart. Not only is it gluten-free but it only has five ingredients and 9 calories per cookie!
There are so many great things about these cookies except for the fact they take a bit of technique. But, if I can do it, you can! Unlike my Almond Clouds or my frozen chocolate cookie dough recipe, you have to pipe the batter (which is a step I would ordinarily avoid).
This homemade instant hot chocolate mix is going to hit the spot. Of course, you may just decide to move somewhere warm instead of drink it.
I am freezing my tush in Massachusetts. We have had a frozen pipe, a dead car, and kids out of school. Woohoo! How do I deal with what winter has handed us? Coffee and hot chocolate! (I hate tea).
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.
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.
Do you know how to roast Brussels sprouts on the stalk? I have always cut them off to cook them but it turns out that it isn’t necessary or even a good idea.
I saw this stalk at Trader Joe’s and at my local grocery store so I am hoping that the entire country has access to this crazy thing. This cost me $6 which I think is a deal.
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.
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 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).
This baby kale salad is for all the kale haters out there. I know you read this website even though I keep trying to sell you kale.
Why do I do it? Have you check out the nutritional information on kale?
