I have been making this Easy Fresh Aji Picante for years and my husband and I love to put it on just about anything! I originally found this recipe on Skinny Taste. If you have not checked out all of the amazing recipes that Gina has created at skinnytaste.com, you are really missing out! Making this Colombian hot sauce is as simple as blending the ingredients together. It takes only a few minutes, and the result is a perfectly spicy and fresh sauce that is incredibly versatile. This is a naturally carb free, dairy free, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian sauce, so it is great for most diets!
We recently went on a cruise, and ate (and drank) the whole time we were gone. I had an amazing time, but I came home feeling so bloated and really just gross. I am a meat eater through and through, but sometimes it is nice to give your body a little break and have a meatless day here and there. This Healthy Loaded Vegetable Soup is great for that. It is absolutely delicious, loaded with super nutritious ingredients and it only comes in at 163 calories a serving. If you aren’t watching what you eat, it would be great with a melty grilled cheese on the side!
Almost always, here in America, you will find an Asian dish served with either rice or noodles. While I love both rice and noodles, I like to mix things up. I decided to take one of the other more popular starches and add a little Asian flair to it. These Crispy Roasted Asian Potatoes are seasoned just perfectly to give you all the flavor you could want and also a nice kick of spice. Serve these potatoes just about any meat for a unique and delicious meal that is sure to add a little excitement to your dinner rotation.
I love making and serving guacamole because it is so quick and easy to make, but it is also loaded with flavor, healthy and low carb. This Fresh Homemade Spicy Guacamole is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at parties or even just to whip up as a quick snack for my family. It’s time to pour some margaritas, grab some chips and dig in!
Pasta is by and far my favorite comfort food, but it is (usually) a guilty pleasure. Many pasta sauces are loaded with way too many carbs, calories, unnecessary sugar and preservatives. Pasta sauce is one of those things that is so easy to make, but many of us tend to pick up a jar of the pre-made stuff out of convenience. This Easy & Healthy Tomato sauce will change all of that! This sauce takes only a few minutes of active cooking time, and just 30 minutes to allow all of the flavors to simmer together. After that, you have a delicious homemade tomato sauce that is considerably better for you and better tasting than anything you will find in the grocery store. With only 92 calories and 9 net carbs per serving, this is a sauce that you don’t have to feel bad about!
Cucumber, Tomato and Onion salad is one of my favorite quick and easy summer recipes. It is always so nice to be able to head out to the garden, grab some fresh vegetables and throw a delicious dish together in just a few minutes. This healthy salad uses fresh cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, and a vinaigrette dressing to create the perfect side dish for those hot summer days when no one wants to heat the kitchen up by using the stove. You can toss this together early in the day, stick it in the fridge and have a delicious “salad” ready at dinner time. A serving of this comes in at only 133 calories and 9 net carbs, so this is one flavorful recipe that you won’t feel bad about enjoying! Try it out today!
