avocado toast

Avocado Toast – 3 Points

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve jumped aboard the avocado toast train. Yes, it’s a super trendy dish, and yes things that are super trendy tend to annoy me. But the thing is, I’ve been eating avocado toast for a long time now, way before it was a thing. The fact is, it’s delicious. DELICIOUS. And it’s packed full of fresh flavors and nutrition.

basic egg white salad

Basic Egg White Salad Recipe – 2 Smart Points

When trying to eat a high protein/low fat diet, it’s no secret that egg whites can play a huge a role in your eating plan. I always keep a big bowl of prepared, hardboiled eggs stashed in my refrigerator for quick and easy access. Eating the yellow part of the egg does provide a lot of nutrients, healthy fats, and cholesterol, but when I want to keep my Smart Points low, I stick to just the whites. One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in this Basic Egg White Salad Recipe. It has all the beloved flavors of…

Blueberry Pancakes

Carrot Cake Pancakes with Blueberries – 5 Smart Points

Saturdays I usually make a delicious brunch. Pancakes are one of my favorite things to make on days like that. I recently found a carrot cake pancake recipe and thought I’d give it a try. I really liked it. The carrot is a mild flavor that adds moisture to the pancakes – much like zucchini in chocolate cake. I topped mine with fat free Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries. I added a little bit of maple syrup for a little extra sweet – and it was delicious. Be sure to grate the carrots by hand, the store-bought grated carrots are…

Blueberry Frozen Yogurt

Blueberry Breakfast Parfait – 10 Smart Points

One of my favorite breakfasts is a parfait. I don’t always layer it nicely in a pretty glass bowl, but I love to combine fresh fruit, yogurt and granola. It’s quick and easy, always delicious and packed with nutrients. I like to have low fat yogurt on hand and a whole grain, low sugar granola as well so I can toss it together. It helps provide me with a great breakfast with minimal effort, so I get a great breakfast even when I’m too lazy to do much for breakfast. With this one, I sprinkled in my favorite granola, as…

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Oat Smoothie – 9 Points

One of the best things about June, in my opinion, is that there is so much produce that comes into season. It’s perfect for all sorts of delicious, seasonal and healthy food. Smoothies are something that I really enjoy. They’re a quick and easy breakfast or snack. Since I’m usually the only one to eat the smoothie, I’ll make up the whole recipe, then leave the other half of the smoothie in the fridge for a snack later on in the day, or breakfast for the next day. One thing I noticed with this wonderful strawberry banana smoothie is that…

Blueberry Muffin

Fresh Blueberry Muffins – 6 Smart Points

In addition to some projects we were working on last weekend, my in-laws also brought us some really delicious, fresh, ripe blueberries. I love blueberries. Growing up, my grandparents lived on the coast of Washington. Grandma had the most amazing blueberry patch ever. It was about 6 feet by 10 feet and completely encased in a large chicken wire cage, to keep the birds out. The only downside was the bugs, because we could go in there and have as many blueberries as we could eat. Each summer, I try to get some fresh blueberries so that I can freeze…

Dutch Babies

Dutch Babies – 5 Smart Points

I have a few go-to breakfasts that I make on the weekend, and they’re usually a little more involved than my regular breakfasts. I love pancakes and hashbrowns with fried eggs. But probably my all time favorite breakfast is Dutch Babies. Growing up, I’m sure my mom made lots of different breakfasts on Saturday mornings, but the one I remember is Dutch Babies with fruit sauce. I loved it then, and I love it even more now. The part I really love about it now is how simple it is to put together. I like to set my oven to…

Granola with Raisins – 9 Smart Points

I love granola with yogurt for breakfast in the morning. I’m not a big morning person, so any weekday breakfast that is quick, easy and delicious is a winner for me. This granola is perfect. It’s light and delicious, but isn’t overwhelming. I can add any fruit I want to in my yogurt and it goes perfectly with the granola. I liked how much it made, it was plenty for a couple of weeks, but since it’s granola, it holds well in an airtight container for a month or more. If you’re concerned, just refrigerate or freeze the airtight container.…

Breakfast Quinoa with Fruit

Breakfast Quinoa with Fruit – 7 Smart Points

I enjoy breakfast cereals, but I like to have my breakfast cereals a little “spruced up”. I like my oatmeal to have plenty of fruit added for sweetness and for flavor. I love to add rhubarb sauce to my oatmeal, bananas, blueberries, strawberries or anything I happen to have on hand. I decided to switch up my breakfast cereals a little bit by making some quinoa. I like quinoa but I usually make it with chicken broth. I made it with milk this time and then sweetened it with a little bit of honey. Add fresh fruit on top and…

GF Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Gluten Free Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins – 5 Smart Points

Lemon poppy seed muffins are classic. Everyone needs a good lemon poppy seed muffin recipe. I decided that I needed a light and delicious lemon poppy seed muffin recipe that was gluten free. I’ve found over the years that when it comes to baked goods, yogurt is a great way to go. Want the lightest, fluffiest and most delicious gluten free biscuits? Use yogurt in place of the milk (even buttermilk). Use the same amount (2/3 cup buttermilk is 2/3 cup yogurt). Then let them sit for a few minutes and you’ll be amazed at how delicious they are. So I…

Heuvos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros – 7 Points

You’ve probably figured out by now that I love my Saturday morning breakfasts. During the week my husband and I do our own thing, we’ll have leftovers or just have cereal. But on the weekend, we (well, really, me, but sometimes I can bribe my husband to do it) cook a proper breakfast and we get to eat it in a leisurely fashion before walking the dog. Huevos Rancheros isn’t one that I make very often, but it’s fabulous. I had some avocados recently, so I decided to make it one morning. In fact, I made it twice recently. The…

Frittata

Frittata – 6 Points

When we left from my in-laws after Thanksgiving, my sister-in-law gave us some farm fresh eggs. Since we’ve had some company this week, I’ve been up making delicious egg-filled breakfasts every day. The first morning was omelets filled with veggies and ham, and next up was a delicious frittata. I love quiche, but there are three things that always get to me – the pie crust, the baking time and the high fat. I’m not terribly good at making gluten free pie crusts, and pie crusts are so high in fat that I really don’t like to use them. Not…

Pumpkin French Toast

Pumpkin French Toast – 6 Points

Since you’re probably turkey-ed out by now, let’s go for some pumpkin this weekend. It’s fall, so there’s plenty of pumpkins available, and this pumpkin French toast is delicious. Make it with French bread or sourdough bread and let the bread sit for a minute or so in the egg mixture. That way it soaks up more of the pumpkin flavor. I like to serve my French toast with yogurt on top since it’s a better alternative than sugary syrup. This French toast is one that you could easily do as a baked French toast. Just chop the pieces of…

Chewy Granola

Chewy Granola – 5 Points

One of my favorite breakfasts is whole grain granola with yogurt and fruit. It’s something that I never get tired of, and granola is easy to take with me. It’s a great snack and perfect for a healthy breakfast when I’m traveling if I’m not sure whether or not the breakfast is something I can eat – you can almost always get yogurt. I like to add fresh fruit to it, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas, peaches – whatever I happen to have on hand. In less than 5 minutes I’ve got a delicious breakfast that’s full of protein fiber and…

Yogurt Oat Banana Muffins

Yogurt and Oat Banana Muffins – 4 Points

Wendy’s on a one dish kick right now (who can blame her, nobody likes dishes, and these are fabulous recipes), and I’m back to finding new recipes to use ripe bananas for. Since bananas are only eaten fresh in our house if they’re still green, sometimes we have an overabundance of bananas to use. These muffins hit the spot. It’s a very simple recipe, all you need is a blender or food processor to mix it in, and you’re ready to go. It doesn’t even require flour since it uses oats that are ground up while you’re mixing up the…

Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberry Pancakes – 5 Points

What’s better on a lazy weekend that brunch with some pancakes? These blueberry pancakes hit the spot. They’re simple and delicious with whole wheat flour and blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in these pancakes – whichever you have on hand. I used frozen blueberries, so I poured each pancake onto the griddle and then dropped the blueberries into the batter. Making these pancakes with whole grain flour adds nutrients, including fiber to these pancakes. If you’re not so sure about using whole wheat flour, the trick is to make sure it’s finely ground. If the flour is…

Overnight Raspberry Oatmeal

Overnight Raspberry Oatmeal – 6 Points

I love to have fruit in my oatmeal. It’s a much better way to sweeten oatmeal without actually adding sugar. I ran across this overnight oatmeal recipe recently and just had to try it. You don’t even have to cook it, there’s no crockpot involved or anything. Just mix it up and stick it in the fridge. I doubled the recipe, but if you make just one portion, all you have to do is just stick the ingredients into the pint jar and shake it up. The next morning, add the fruit and eat! You can add the raspberries (or…

Savory Crepes

Savory Crêpes – 10 Points

Crepes are wonderful. You can fill them with just about anything and they’re really delicious. Quite often we fill our crepes with yogurt and fresh fruit or a fruit sauce. We’ve also made Eggs Benedict in crepes. Really, the filling options are endless. These savory crepes are simple and delicious as well as being vegetarian. The spinach and mushroom filling sautéed in butter with onions adds wonderful flavor. They are savory and rich without being overwhelming. Crepes can be a little difficult to get the hang of at first, but don’t worry. This recipe makes about 15 crepes, but you’ll…

Cheesy Zucchini Quiche

Cheesy Zucchini Quiche – 6 Points

Garden zucchini are finally starting to wind down, so there won’t be too many more zucchini recipes until next summer. This zucchini quiche is wonderful and elegant. It’s a great recipe to make in little tart pans or individual servings as an appetizer, or as a quick and easy breakfast. If you’re going to make this quiche mini though, don’t forget to quarter the zucchini before slicing them, or they’ll overpower the size of the portion. One of the wonderful things about quiches is that they are so simple to make, but they are delicious every time. You can just…

Ham Broccoli Breakfast Muffins

Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Muffins – 3 Points

I’m someone who loves to cook, but during the week, the last thing I want to do is actually cook breakfast. While that means that sometimes I’ll just grab yogurt and granola, it also means that sometimes, I just skip it and snack all morning. So, meals like these ham and broccoli breakfast muffins are perfect for me. I can make up a batch while making dinner one night and pop them in the freezer when they’re cooled. Then I can just take out one, heat and eat. It’s perfect for me. There’s no thought about what I’m going to…

Omelet

Omelet with Vegetables & Ham – 6 Points

Breakfasts are wonderful at our house. Although, to be perfectly honest, during the week we just find our own simple breakfasts, but on Saturday, all bets are off. We’ll have pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage or omelets. Omelets make a wonderful meal – breakfast or dinner. Add any ingredients you have on hand for omelet fillings – onions, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, cheese, ham and bacon are all wonderful fillings. Enjoy this delightful ham and veggie omelet for a filling and delicious breakfast.
