Frozen Yogurt Bark

Are you looking for a delicious and easy snack to eat while the heat of the summer is starting to come?  This is so yummy and really hits the spot on a warm day.  I love making it in the beginning of the week and then eating it throughout the week.  Snacks that can be pre-made are the best.   It helps me be successful in eating healthy when I know that I already have a delicious snack ready for me.  I know that if I have to make the snack, it is easier (sometimes) to just grab something quick that isn't as healthy.  So, this is just perfect.  It is something that I can make Sunday afternoon and enjoy during the busy week ahead.  Plus, this snack is great for kids and adults!  You can create so many different variations of the frozen yogurt bark too so you can constantly mix it up and enjoy it week after week. 

 

Ingredients

2 cups of your favorite Greek yogurt (I love honey vanilla)

1 cup of your favorite fruit (I love strawberries)

 

Optional Ingredients: Don't be afraid to try to new ingredients, that's why the frozen bark is so great- there are unlimited combinations!

Dried Fruit

Raisins

Walnuts

Granola

Maple Syrup Drizzle

Coconut

Chocolate Drizzle

Sea Salt

Blueberries

Mint

Chocolate Chips

 

Directions

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  You don't want the yogurt to stick!

2. You have two options and they are equally tasty!  Option One:  Spread your yogurt evenly over the parchment paper with a spatula (about 1/4 inch thick).  Sprinkle your toppings over the yogurt.  Option Two: Place yogurt and toppings in a bowl.  Mix ingredients together evenly.   Spread the mixture evenly over the parchment paper with a spatula.

3. Place in the freezer for a minimum of 5 hours.  Once frozen, break the pieces apart and enjoy!  Store in a airtight container in the freezer for later enjoyment. 

 

How much did you love the frozen yogurt bark?  I would love to hear what combinations you created in your kitchen.  Please tag @hbgcommunity and use the hashtags #hbggirls and #hbgblog to tell me what you came up with and enjoyed.

Pan Cooked Potatoes

I have another side dish for you this week.  This one is something that I discovered while getting tired of eating baked potatoes.  Cooking can get a little redundant sometimes so I love breaking out and creating new dishes to enjoy.  I know there are so many ways to cook potatoes, but I have found that often times I end up eating an unhealthy recipe.  These potatoes I have eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner!  I mean, not in the same day, but that's how good and versatile they are.  They pretty much go with anything and are a staple in my house.  So enjoy!

 

Ingredients

2 potatoes (you can choose any kind of potato you like)

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 tablespoon fresh rosemary

2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

1. Thinly slice your potatoes and set aside.

2. Heat the olive oil in a pan on the stove.

3.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant (about 2 minutes).

4. Add the potatoes and cook until they are at your desired tenderness.  If you slice the potatoes thin, they will cook more quickly. 

5.  Add the seasonings and mix evenly.

6.  Serve immediately!

 

I would love to know if you like these potatoes best for breakfast, lunch or dinner!  Tell me by tagging @hbgcommunity and using the hashtags #hbggirls and #hbgblog.  Can't wait to hear from you all!

Peanut Butter Banana Roll-Up

I am a huge peanut butter lover.  I can put it on almost anything from apples to waffles to sandwiches.  When trying this recipe, I recommend finding a healthy peanut butter.  There are several peanut butter products that have way too much extra and unnecessary ingredients inside.  I always find the peanut butter that has one ingredient, peanuts.  The other ingredients like salt, sugar, and oil may seem like trivial amounts, but you just don't need it included.  So, opt for the healthy peanut butter!  Back to the recipe, I often eat this as a quick snack in between my meals.  It is easy to make and can also be a mess free on-the-go snack. 

 

Ingredients

1 Flatout Flatbread

1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 banana

1/2 tablespoon honey

 

Directions

1. Spread peanut butter and honey on your Flatout Flatbread.

2. Slice the banana into thin slices and spread over peanut butter and honey mixture. 

3. Roll the Flatout into a taco and enjoy!

 

Did you enjoy the snack?  I hope so!  Tag @hbgcommunity and use the hashtags #hbggirls and #hbgblog and tell me about how much enjoyed this treat.

Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

I love hummus!!  It's so easy to make!  Have you ever tried to make it at home?  I know it is available at the grocery store too, but if you create your own, it doesn't have preservatives and it feels good to make the food you are eating.  I always feel more accomplished when I create a recipe for my family too.  I tend to order hummus for an appetizer at restaurants when we go out to eat.  One day, I realized that I can probably create my own at home.  Plus, when I eat it at home, I can create a whole tray of food to dip in the hummus.  Here's my favorite hummus recipe!  I hope you enjoy it!

 

Ingredients

2 cups canned garbanzo beans

3/4 cup cilantro

2 jalapenos (with or without seeds depending on how spicy you would like it to be)

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

5 cloves of garlic

6 tablespoons tahini

salt to taste

 

Directions

1. In a blender, blend the cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, olive oil, tahini and lemon juice.  Blend until the ingredients create a smooth pureed mixture.

2. Add the salt and garbanzo beans and continue to blend until you have created a smooth paste.  You can always add more olive oil or lemon juice to thin out your hummus.

3. Serve with your favorite pita chips or pita bread.  I love to use carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers and broccoli too!

Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

I know I said chips and salsa are my favorite food.  Well, tacos...that's my second favorite.  These tacos are probably the easiest recipe I've ever made and also one of the best.  The slow cooker is one the best kitchen appliances I own.  It's so great being able to throw dinner in it in the morning and hours later having dinner already ready to eat!  You know what else is great about it?  You can always make extra so you have leftovers because the leftover chicken is amazing.  Follow these simple steps to create some delicious tacos.

Ingredients

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 1/2 cups 505 green chile sauce

1/2 cup cilantro

2 limes, juiced

 

Directions

1. Place your chicken breasts at the bottom of your slow cooker.

2. Sprinkle the seasonings evenly over the chicken.

3. Cover with 505 green chile sauce and lime juice.

4. Lastly, sprinkle cilantro on top.

5. Cook on low for 6-7 hours.

6. Once your chicken is done, remove from slow cooker and shred the chicken with a fork.  It should shred easily.  Use the juice from the slow cooker to moisten the chicken to your liking.  I usually add about 3/4 cup of juice.

7. Now, find your favorite tortilla.  Place your chicken in the tortilla and top with all of your desired toppings.  I usually use corn tortillas and top of my taco with cheese, avocado, salsa and lettuce!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love breakfast foods, but I find that there are a lot of unhealthy options out there.  Sure, it is quick and easy to make muffins out of a box.  However, wouldn't you rather eat a muffin that still tastes great and is also healthy?  Theses muffins are still easy to make and you don't have to feel guilty eating them.  My favorite time to make these is on a morning when I get to sleep in and head to the kitchen in my pajamas.  Then, I can sip of some delicious coffee and create these yummy muffins.  Here is the recipe!

2 medium bananas, mashed

6 eggs

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Roasted Cauliflower

I love vegetables, but sometimes I get bored with them.  I am always looking for new ways to create a delicious tasting veggie!  It sure is easier to eat healthy when you enjoy the taste of what you are eating.  I have made some mistakes in the kitchen before...I think the flavors all sound good together and then when I actually eat it, it's not yummy at all!  Have you ever done that?  I recently tried incorporating cilantro with broccoli.  Okay, I guess now that I'm typing it, it doesn't really sound that great together.  I love cilantro so much and wanted a new broccoli recipe.  So, naturally, I decided to put them together.  I added other spices and created a new broccoli recipe.  Only, it was horrible.  Oops!  I went ahead and tossed that recipe in the trash.  Now, let's get back to point, I have a wonderful cauliflower recipe to share!  I decided to take a break from broccoli recipes.  For my cauliflower recipe, you have to love garlic.  I would say that 90% of the things I cook in my kitchen include garlic somehow.  I definitely recommend buying fresh garlic too.  Not only does it taste better than the garlic in a jar, it has no preservatives.  Finally, after all that, here's my cauliflower recipe.  It's a great side dish to any meal! 

Ingredients

1 head of cauliflower, washed and chopped

2 fresh garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons olive oil

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix together to coat the cauliflower evenly. 

3. Place the cauliflower onto a greased baking sheet.  Spread it all out so they aren't overlapping.

4. Put in the over for 20-25 minutes until golden and tender.

5. Serve and enjoy!

Salsa

I must admit, chips & salsa is probably one of my favorite things to eat.  I mean, I've told my husband that instead of bringing me fresh flowers for Valentine's Day, he should stop and grab some chips & salsa!  He knows anytime he wants to make me smile, he has to get me some chips& salsa.  The thing is, I am picky about my salsa.  I don't really like store bought salsas and trust me, I have tried many.  I have found that I can make salsa that is fresh and delicious on my own.  It's pretty simple to prepare and make.  I know there are so many salsa recipes out there, but this is favorite.  Give it a try, tell me what you think and tell me about your favorite salsa.  I would really love to try your favorite recipe for homemade salsa.  I am sure there are some more combinations of ingredients that I would love!  Please go share your salsa recipes!  Tag @hbgcommunity and use the hashtags #hbggirls and #hbgblog.  Here's my recipe!

Ingredients

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped and fresh

3 garlic cloves

1 4.5 ounce of green chilies (I like spicy)

1 jalapeno, chopped

1 red onion, chopped

5 tomatoes, chopped

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon sugar

 

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients into a blender or food processer.

2. Puree until your desired consistency.  I like my salsa to be smooth so I blend it until it is smooth.  It's going to taste yummy no matter how chunky or smooth it is!

3. Enjoy with chips, veggies or on top of your favorite food!

 

I hope you love it!
