(1) acid for enzyme action to tenderize meat – found in lemon and lime juice, apple juice, wine, yogurt, buttermilk and vinegars. (2) pungent herbs and spices for flavo (3) drop of oil to add moisture and (4) enough time to let the process work. 🥩

Are you a blueberry muffin addict...or is that just me?!? 😜 This Skinny Blueberry Muffin recipe actually tastes good - which is good when you can't eat just one! (I mean...who can actually eat JUST ONE muffin?!?)


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 large egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups fresh blueberries tossed in 2 tablespoons flour (helps prevent sinking)


To make this healthy blueberry muffin recipe, simply whisk together the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, then combine the two. Gently fold in the blueberries, then scoop the batter into greased muffin tins.

Bake the healthy blueberry muffins until the tops are set and are springy to the touch. Let muffins cool in pans for about 10 minutes before removing to cool on wire rack.

Turn your zucchini into noodles (or even easier, use packaged Zoodles!) and toss with fresh basil pesto. A fresh and healthy meal in minutes!


4 small zucchini ends trimmed (or Zoodles)
2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Cherry or grape tomatoes optional


Use a julienne peeler or mandoline to slice the zucchini into noodles (or use packaged Zoodles). Set aside.

Combine the basil and garlic in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add the lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.

Pulse until blended. Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the zucchini noodles and pesto. Toss until zucchini noodles are well coated. Top with tomatoes, if using. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

Note-if you want to cook the zucchini noodles, you can. Just add the zucchini pesto noodles to a skillet and sauté them up over medium heat. It only takes a few minutes

Eating snacks with the right ratio of nutrients, with the right calories, will help keep your body energized and help you lose weight. Here are 6 healthy snacks that keep the calories down and the protein and fiber up!

⭐️ Power berry smoothie
This healthy snack recipe, which calls for soy protein powder and low-fat plain yogurt, contains 9 grams of protein; swap in Greek yogurt to add even more. Frozen berries add fiber (4 grams total), and honey provides sweetness. All this for only 139 calories!

Ingredients: Frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries), water, plain yogurt, honey, unsweetened soy protein powder.

⭐️ Edamame
One cup of edamame, or boiled soybeans, contains 17 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, and 189 calories. A perfect snack all by itself! Serve hot or cold, season with salt, and enjoy.

⭐️ Chicken pita sandwich (half)
There's no reason you can't have smaller portions of "real" food as snacks. Whip up this chicken and veggie pita in the morning, and split it in half for two snacks throughout the day. Each half contains 200 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and more than 20 grams of protein.

Ingredients: Baby spinach, cooked skinless, boneless chicken, sliced red bell pepper, low-fat Italian vinaigrette, whole-grain pita.

⭐️ Canned tuna on whole-wheat crackers
If you don't want to incorporate dairy into every snack, a can of tuna (packaged in water) is another great source of lean protein plus healthy Omega-3s. For about 200 calories, you can enjoy 3 ounces of light tuna and 6 whole-wheat cracker.

⭐️ Roast garlic and edamame dip
Edamame is a great snack by itself, but it also makes a great ingredient in this creamy dip for raw veggies or whole-wheat pita bread. You can enjoy up to three servings in one snack session, for a total of 162 calories, 9 grams protein and 6 grams fiber.

⭐️ Shrimp stack
You may not think of shellfish as a grab-and-go healthy snack food, but you can put this tasty treat together in a flash if you keep pre-cooked shrimp on hand. With Greek yogurt and avocado, it's a protein powerhouse with 9 grams per serving (and 4 g fiber), for only 129 calories.
