All the taste of Tex Mex nachos, without all the carbs!Read More
Here is what's cookin' these days...
Shakshuka looks fancy, but is actually quite easy to whip up at home. It is loaded with veggies which makes it quite filling and hearty, yet it is really healthy. This recipe is both low calorie, low carb, and also fits into the 21 day fix eating plan. This recipe adds a sriracha kick to the recipe!Read More
The best chicken enchiladas in soup form! Making soup from scratch is something we do often on lazy Sundays, and something we always do after roasting a chicken. This easy soup recipe has a lot of flavor in a light broth and is a very healthy soup. We frequently make chicken tortilla soup, so this is a fun twist on that recipe. We know you’ll love it!Read More
This year we’ve gone on a few incredible and inspiring trips to Thailand, Singapore, and Iceland where fish is prevalent and used in so many different ways. Poaching fish is also a smart way to add a lot of flavor without adding too many calories. The sea bass is light, yet full of Asian flavors. The other great aspect of this recipe is that the poaching liquid turns into a flavorful sauce to finish your entree.Read More
New Year, New Healthy Recipe! We wanted to make a lean, lamb dish that was easy, didn’t require too much tending to, and was simply delicious. The basis of the recipe is similar to a beef fajita recipe but packs way more flavor and uses Mediterranean spices, including an addicting harissa yogurt sauce.
Tikka Masala can actually be a pretty nutritious recipe. You use lean chicken, lots of tomatoes and spices for loads of flavor. Really, the least nutritious part of tikka masala is the cream and butter. That is why for this recipe we made a few small adjustments to lower the calorie count without losing any of the delicious flavor!Read More
Growing up outside of Texas, we didn’t about know the Hatch chile phenomenon until we moved to Austin. All of the markets bring in truckloads of hatch chiles for a few weeks while they are in season. They feature tons of hatch products and even roast them fresh outside of the store. Hatch chiles come from New Mexico. The peppers are much more flavorful than a bell pepper, and they are the star of this recipe. It is super delicious. Plus, it is low calorie, low carb, and 21 day fix approved.Read More
When it comes to salads, a simple lettuce and balsamic salad will not do! We will be starving in no time and not satisfied. Our favorite salads include pasta salad, potato salad, and all the other salads that are calorie laden. That is why we came up with this couscous salad recipe that is approved on the 21 day fix plan: a salad that doesn’t suck! It is an easy way to trick yourself into eating healthy veggies, it includes protein and it is seriously satisfying. If you are looking for a vegetarian 21 day fix recipe, just omit the chicken! Whether you are trying to eat healthy or not, we can bet you’ll like this as a lunch or as a side dish!Read More
There is a lot going on in Austin in the fall! All the food and drinks at Longhorn Football tailgate parties and the Austin City Limits music festival has us feeling stuffed like a turkey and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! To balance it all out, we have been making our favorite low-cal, low-carb recipe almost every week. This lettuce wrap recipe will blow your mind. In fact, we ate at P.F. Changs while on a layover a few weeks ago and were FLOORED by how much tastier (and healthier!) our recipe was. Enjoy this as an appetizer or have it as entrée!Read More
It is officially Autumn! You wouldn’t really guess it in Austin right now, as this week still topped out at a sweltering 97 degrees! It’s too hot here to jump on the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) trend, so instead we are whipping out one of our favorite fall protein shake recipes.Read More
