Tasty Tuesday – Greek Pizza Muffins

Oh man, pizza gets me every time. I LOVE pizza… I know it’s not healthy and should be a treat, but it’s so good! Why is it so good?!

This recipe combines two of my loves – pizza, and Greek, and puts them in a portion control-friendly format – thats a win! 🙂

Does this sound like something you might try? It’s fun to make a batch and then have them ready-made for the week!

Tasty Tuesday – Roasted Cauliflower Mash

How do you feel about cauliflower? It’s not my absolute favorite, but I don’t dislike it. It can actually be used to make healthier versions of many things, including pizza crust, and this featured recipe of Cauliflower Mash.

This is a pretty simple recipe that will fill you up without weighing you down. It is a fantastic choice for Diabetics because it’s non-starchy.

This makes a great side dish, and you can get 8 servings out of this recipe.

Try It Tuesday – White Bean Consomme

I love soups. We are in prime soup season, especially here in New England. Some days may be mild, but others can chill you to the bone, and who doesn’t like a nice warmup via soup?!

White Bean Consomme

This gives you 23 net Carbs, which isn’t too bad for a meal. Factor in some carbs from the crusty bread (I mean, you don’t have to, but I always do…), and for me, this is still within the range per meal my endocrinologist has recommended for me.

Very fragrant due to the Rosemary, but I personally LOVE that.

Sunday Shakeology – Caramel Apple

Happy December! Is it too late to enjoy Caramel Apple? Because I’m totally still enjoying it…

Do you like Caramel Apples? Caramel is definitely one of my weaknesses, and always has been. Caramel Extract works well in my world because it can give me the flavor I love so much without the carbs and the sugar – a decent compromise, I’d say.

This recipe can actually also work with apple sauce (we like to make our own), about 1/2 a Cup.

Sound like something up your alley? Am I crazy to go so nuts over caramel? Why does it have such power over me?!


Sunday Shakeology – Pumpkin Pie

Confession: I AM NOT one of those people who likes pumpkin everything. Nope, I pick and choose (and to be fair I think it’s gotten sort of out of control, just in my opinion…).

I do love my Mother’s Pumpkin Pie, and I do love a pumpkin flavored drink here and there, so of course I love it in my Shakeology!

Pumpkin Pie

Do you go crazy for pumpkin anything and everything? Do you have a favorite?

Or do you think Pumpkin-EVERYTHING is a bit much?


Sunday Shakeology – Maple Buttercup

Do you like Maple? I certainly do… (in moderation, of course). When I was younger, my grandfather had a cabin in VT, and I can actually remember it well for the age I was at the time… I can’t be too sure but, I think my love of maple generated there!

Of course, a little goes a long way, so be sure to exercise control!

Maple Buttercup

This is one of my favorite Fall recipes – I would prefer to be sipping it in front of a fireplace, but alas, I have no fireplace (yet…), so until that day, I drink it and dream of my fireplace… perhaps in our OWN cabin in VT 🙂
