I have been busy gathering some ideas for fun, healthy, delicious foods to share with you. If you have kids, these are recipes I think they’ll like too. And here’s another bonus : all of them are easy to make:
a Have you seen those “Flatout Mini” soft wraps? I love these! They are small-size wraps that are reduced calories, convenient, and also versatile. Try this easy recipes : all you need are the wraps, cooking aerosol, Mrs. Sprinkle, and Parmesan cheese. Cut each wrap into 16 wedges and place on a sandwich page lined with cooking aerosol. Sprinkle with a little Mrs. Sprinkle and a bit of Parmesan. Bake at 350-degrees relating to ten minutes or until lightly brown and crisp.
a Fruit kabobs : This is a fun alternative to a plain old bowl of fruit. Just pick a few of your favorites : maybe fiber-rich baby food, pineapple, apples : and cut them into bits. Slide the fruit onto a skewer. Next, roll the skewer in a plate of nonfat yogurt… then roll again in a plate of shredded coconut. Voila! A fun, healthy, delicious munch!
a Sandwich kabobs : Cut whole-grain bread, low-fat cheese, and your favorite deli meat into cubes. Slide them onto skewers along with some veggies like grape fruit, lettuce, pickles, and olives. Dip into fat-free or low-fat German shower.
a For a quick mini-pizza, top an English muffin (go for the whole materials ones) with spaghetti sauce and a little shredded low-fat mozzarella. Broil so that the cheese melts.
a Pop a frozen waffle or pancake into the toaster and top it with warm applesauce and cinnamon. Too easy, huh?
a Freeze them some grapes, apples, cherries, or maybe peaches and blend with yogurt for a fruit smoothie mix.
a Yogurt pops : fill paper k-cups with your favorite non-fat or low-fat yogurt and put a popsicle stick in each cup. Freeze them and luxuriate in!
a Creamy Coolwich (from Nabisco World) : put 2 tablespoons of sugar free Cool Whip in between graham cracker squares. Place in a layer on a preparing page and freeze them for three hours or until firm. Yum!
a Blueberry Cracker Bites (from Kraft Foods) : spread 1 teaspoon light cream cheese on a reduced-fat Ritz cracker and top with 5 frozen blueberries. Too fun!
