We all know how to make burgers, right? I am here to show you a healthier way to eat your burger. A cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce instead of adding a bun. A healthy no bun cheeseburger. Start off the year eating right but still keeping the foods you like. By omitting the bun you are saving 150 calories minimum on your meal. Adding the extra toppings and sauces add up. Why not omit the bun when it is already empty calories?
Winter holidays come with heavy meals. That is why fish is a good option. A fish you don't have quite often. The new year is here. Why not start off with a healthy meal to celebrate! I had wanted snapper for quite some time. When I called my local Whole Foods they told me they had 10 lbs of snapper in stock and that I should reserve the amount I wanted for pick up. I purchased 3 lbs and had it cleaned and filleted. My plan was to make snapper with pineapple salsa. This dish took me a total of 24 minutes, including the pineapple salsa. While the snapper was cooking, I made the salsa.
Have you tried and tried to organize your linen closet but it always seems to become messy over time? I have tried that too many times and kept failing every time. I finally found a cheap and quick solution! For some time I was looking for bins that were cheap and in a neutral color. I really did not want to spend between $6-$11 on each bin! I needed ten bins and so for me that did not make much sense.
Have you ever had duck? To some it may be intimidating, as it's not an everyday meat people eat. I made a sweet roast and tender duck and boy was it absolutely delicious! It was my first time having it and making it. My husband had it once at a local restaurant called The Landing Restaurant. We are still celebrating the holiday season. Why not make a delicious roast and tender duck? Everyone says it tastes like chicken. I can confirm that is correct. The difference between chicken and duck is that duck is very fatty and has only dark meat. This explains why this meat is very tender.
There are some people you never know what to get them. A few reasons are, they have everything, are picky or just don’t have hobbies. They just go to work and go home. This is where edible gifts win. The perfect gift idea for the pet lover. Make gingerbread cookies shaped like an animal! In my case, I made gingerbread cookies shaped like dogs and dog bones! If you don't like gingerbread cookies, make sugar cookies!
Do you get tons of holiday cards every year? What do you do with them? How about, reuse them! DIY Gift Tags for Christmas! Keep your favorite ones but use the rest to make holiday gift tags for the following Christmas. I actually do that for all types of cards, including Birthday cards. If you like the design, you can cut it into a circle or shape and use as a gift tag.
The holidays are filled with sweets. There is always an excuse to eat something unhealthy because it's the holiday season. As I write this I feel so full of eating unhealthy today. Now I have a slight headache! Tomorrow I will go back to healthy eating. With that being said, I want to share a healthy holiday snack I have been making, Bruschetta on a rice cake. It's really not ONLY a holiday snack but I am calling it that because it has all the Christmas colors. So why not call it a holiday snack? I love bruschetta. It's very fresh, light and serving it on a rice cake is even lighter than on bread. At less than 50 calories per rice cake, it can be topped with anything from peanut butter and bananas to guacamole without worrying about the extra calories.
