As a blog whose focus is primarily on desserts, it gets mighty quiet around here come January. After all the indulging over the holidays and the New Year’s resolutions made on January first, folks want to avoid temptation. I thought this was the perfect time to share some of my favorite healthy recipes from the blog.
Mediterranean Chopped Salad–add some chicken or salmon for a terrific meal
Greek Farro Salad–I love the bite of chewy farro and the freshness from all the vegetables.
Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wraps–using lettuce leaves eliminates the carbs and the flavorful marinade makes these irresistible.
Smoked Salmon Platter–I love eating salmon in nearly every form. On some whole grain bread, this makes a marvelous snack or light meal.
Salmon Salad Nicoise—can also be made with rare Ahi tuna slices or high quality canned tuna (I prefer it in oil though that will up the calories).
Strawberry Salsa Topped Salmon–adding a fruit salsa makes this a restaurant worthy entree!
Sea Bass with Tomatoes, Olives and Capers–if you’re not a fan of fruit with your seafood, this Mediterranean relish may be more your style.
Vegetable Beef Soup–a soup filled with vegetables and lean beef will fill you up in a most delicious way.
Poached Peaches with Mascarpone Cream–we can’t skip dessert! Poach fresh peaches, pears or apples
and serve with a little low-fat frozen yogurt and some berries.
Honey Lime Fruit Salad–a jazzed up fruit salad does not seem like deprivation.
