Arabic Fattoush Salad

Arabic Fattoush Salad Recipe – 2 Smart Points

On a trip to Israel a few years ago, my husband and I stopped at this amazing Arabic restaurant in Jerusalem. And of all the fantastic foods I got to try on my visit, I will never forget the fattoush salad I had there. IT WAS AMAZING. I know that may sound crazy…to be so blow away by a salad, but the incredible flavor combination of this traditional arabic salad was divine.

Crack Slaw

Crack Slaw Recipe – 2 Points

So apparently, this “crack slaw” thing is a big deal. I’ve been hearing all about it lately, and with such an interesting name, I had to see what in the world it was. Crack slaw is basically just a simple stir fry made with cabbage and ground beef that is supposed to be so incredibly delicious that it’s addictive.

Crockpot Split Pea Soup – 2 Smart Points

I’ll admit, I wasn’t sure about split pea soup. It doesn’t sound very appealing and it definitely doesn’t look appealing. However, it’d been awhile since I’d done anything in the crockpot, so I thought I’d give it a try. I’ll admit, there are still more appealing looking meals out there. A large bowl of green soup isn’t top pretty. But the rich and delicious flavor of the soup more than makes up for it. I love how simple it was to put together. Just stick it all in the crockpot and turn it on. Once you’re ready to serve it, just use an immersion blender to puree it to your desired consistency. This is a great way to use up the ham bone from the Sunday dinner. What I really loved about this whole meal was how easy it was to to make! Everything went in the crockpot in the…

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 a traditional egg salad, but with a lot less fat, sugar and calories. At just 2 Smart Points per serving, this egg white salad goes great on a sandwich, on top of a salad, or straight out of the bowl! You can’t go wrong with this reliable recipe.

Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms

Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms – 2 Smart Points

One of my new favorite vegetable side dish recipes is this Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms dish. It’s quick and easy (you know I love those kinds of recipes!) and is very flavorful.The sweet and tangy balsamic vinegar adds such a nice taste and light caramelization to the perfectly roasted veggies. I seriously could not get enough of it. Serve this healthy side dish with your favorite protein for a complete meal!

Cucumber & Tomato Salad – 2 Smart Points

One of the reasons why I love side salads is that it’s a great way to add veggies (and nutrients) to my meal. It’s also a great way to add a pop of color to my meal that just makes it seem more fun and interesting. Fresh salads are just great anyway. They are so refreshing and light that they’re always tasty. This one is full of color with the green cucumbers, red tomatoes and radishes, yellow bell peppers and red onions. The dressing is simple and delicious – one of those vinaigrettes that I love. I always use a little canning jar with a lid to mix up my dressing ingredients. I just toss everything in it and then screw on the lid and shake it up. If you’d like to mix up this salad a bit more, use yellow tomatoes and a red pepper, or a mix of…

Blueberry Mango Yogurt Pops – 2 Smarts Points

I love blueberry and mango together. It’s one of my favorite smoothie flavors, so I usually have frozen blueberries and mangos in the freezer. They’re great for smoothies, and blueberries are perfect to add to pancakes, scones and muffins. This makes it perfect to have blueberries and mangos on hand to make some really delicious frozen yogurt pops. I don’t have the actual popsicle molds, but paper cups (avoid the ones with wax coating if possible) and wooden sticks work just as well. These are a great treat for me, they provide the sweet treat that I often crave in the afternoons. However, since it’s full of fruit and low-fat yogurt, it’s a much better option that candy or ice cream. These are just a great treat and they’re perfect for all the kids – the little ones and the big ones!

Chunky Applesauce – 2 Smart Points

Well, it’s the time of the year when the remaining garden produce is needing used. It’s kept pretty well until now, but if I want it to taste good, I need to use it pretty quickly. Since we have a few apples left, I thought it was a perfect time to make chunky applesauce (and an apple crisp with the rest of them). We had a variety of apples from my in-laws, but the specific apples you use doesn’t matter too much. The key to delicious applesauce, apple, butter, apple crisps or apple pies is the variety. Use a variety of apples – three or four different types of apples. Use apples that are sweet, soft, tart and firm. The varieties will really meld together to make a delicious finished product. When it comes to applesauce (especially chunky), you want to make sure that you use one apple that is…

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies – 2 Points +

I typically don’t make too many desserts, because, well, we have to eat them once they’re made. Cookies are frequently the exception to that rule. With cookies, they’re so easy to just keep a few out and stick the rest in the freezer. Then I can take out a cookie or two when I really need something sweet. These peanut butter cookies are just perfect for that. They’ve only got five ingredients, so they’re made in no time. I completely forgot to make the traditional peanut butter cookie cross hatch in them before I baked them, and they still turned out fine. The baking soda and the amount of oil in the peanut butter help these cookies to spread. If you’re having trouble with that though, baking soda helps cookies to spread and baking powder helps them to puff, so just add a little of whichever you need. I enjoy…

Asian Marinated Vegetable Skewers – 2 Points +

Whenever I decide to grill something, I always like to have as much of the meal grilled as possible. That means less dishes to do, and it also means that my husband will make the whole thing. These vegetable skewers are just the thing. They go so well with a simple grilled chicken breast and some grilled spicy potatoes tops of the meal. It’s important to marinate these vegetables, but I like to do that while I’m thawing the chicken breast and prepping the potatoes. While it’s possible to marinate these for up to 12 hours, I’m usually not organized enough to get that done. And since the veggies are basted with the leftover marinade while they’re being grilled, they are still just as tasty even when they’re only marinated for 30 minutes. You also get to have a whole bunch of vegetables for only 2 points plus!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate & Walnuts – 2 Points +

It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to vegetables. Whether it’s having the same vegetables over and over, or fixing them the same way every time. These Brussels sprouts are definitely different and delicious. They are lightly roasted, just enough to be tender, and then tossed with pomegranate seeds and walnuts. If you like a little more pomegranate flavor, you can add 3 tablespoons of pomegranate syrup to the salad. It makes it even more delicious, but the syrup can be a little difficult to find. Don’t worry, it’s still incredible as it is. This is a salad that’s perfect for a side dish. It’s easy and beautiful, but without too many points. It’s also great for someone who is watching their carb intake, since it’s so low in carbohydrates but high in fiber. All in all, it’s a delicious combination – tasty and healthy!

Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies – 2 Points +

I’m always looking for ways to use my ripe bananas in recipes. This cookie is wonderful, it’s moist and full of delicious nuts and raisins. I like to use them as a snack before and after my walks. They’re sweet and tasty without being overly sweet or rich. The applesauce helps to add a sweet and moist quality to the cookie.

Marinated Tomato Salad – 2 Points +

Sweet cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden are one of my favorite vegetables. These sweet tomatoes paired with cucumbers and sweet bell peppers are bright, summery and perfect for a salad. Combined with the home made vinaigrette the the sweet and tangy onion and vinegar flavor, it’s a perfect side. It can be served immediately, or it can be marinated for up to 4 hours in the refrigerator before serving.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – 2 Points +

Who doesn’t love a cookie for a snack? These old fashioned oatmeal raisin cookies are delicious. They’re soft and moist, just a little sweet and they hit the spot. I quite often make oatmeal cookies and split the dough into two batches. I’ll make some with chocolate chips or M & M’s and the other half with raisins. That way, everyone’s happy – the chocolate lovers and the chocolate haters. When you make these cookies with raisins, soak the raisins in hot water for 15 or 20 minutes before you add them to the cookies. The raisins will be much more plump and the cookies will be tender and tasty. But, if you’re in a hurry, just toss the raisins in and the cookies will still turn out fabulous. I typically use a combination of quick oats and old fashioned oats. The quick oats mix in a little better, but…
