Ok so y’all are not going to believe this I made cilantro, lime, and wait for it ….. Have any guesses ….no well I will tell you butter tilapia!!!!!
OMIGOSH I KNOW RIGHT JUST TOTALLY BLEW YOUR MIND!

Well it was amazing so let me give you the recipe!

Ingredients:
-1/4 cup cilantro
-1 tablespoon Brummel and Brown Yogurt Butter (this is how I am getting the creamy buttery taste with HALF the calories)
-1/2 a lime ( my lime was huge so I only need half but keep the other half because I added a few extra sprinkles towards the end for a kick also if you only have small limes available one small lime will do the trick)
-2 tilapia filets

Instruction:
1.Heat pan up and take the tilapia out of the freezer ( I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before but if your cooking fish only take it out right before cooking because if not ….. Lets just say it is not pretty because your fish will fall apart)

2.Make the rub or sauce for the fish. Chop cilantro coarsely and add to a small bowl. Cut half a lime and squeeze into bowl. Add butter and mix. *If you don’t want too chop and mix and blah blah just put it into a food processor I guess you could put it into a blender but since it is such a small mix it will be quite hard to get it out.

3.Rub the mix onto the tilapia. Put the tilapia on the pan.

4.Cook until browned.

5.Serve and enjoy. If you are cooking this for a special event add lime zest on top amd a few sprinkles of lime!!

I hope you enjoy the recipe! Comment if you want a recipe made healthy or just want a recipe period.
Until next time!
Adiós!

So I know I haven’t posted in a while but I was at Wonderful Wonderful Camp McDowell! Even though I love blogging I also love camp sosorry about that. Well anyways to day I am going to give you an amazing recipe to try so let’s get cookin’!

Ingredients:
– 1 slice of multigrain bread (I particularly love Target multigrain bread)
– 2 slices of hormel’s honey deli ham (hormel’s ham is really good because it isn’t full of nitrates)
– 1/2 a tomato
– a little bit of cheese (you can use any cheese of your choice but I used aged cheddar cheese because it was my birthday yesterday but if I really wanted to be healthy zoo would have used provolone)
– 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
– 1/2 a Japanese eggplant
– 1/4 cup of onion
– a sprinkling of the Maggie sauce I used in the vegetable marinade so if your new to my blog you can see a picture of it there so you can find it or I may just post a picture of it today

Instructions:
1.Toast your slice of multigrain bread
2.Heat a pan with olive oil over medium heat
3.Once the pan is hot slice your eggplant lengthwise *remember you only need 1/2 the eggplant
4.Cook until browned on each side
5.In the left over olive oil cook the onions until browned *if you need more olive oil add more olive oil is high in calories but they are all healthy fats that your body needs to survive so don’t be scared to add more
6.Slice your tomato and remove onions from heat
7.Layer your bread however you may want to
8.Add cheese on top and place in oven on broil high for 2-5 minutes I would thin but I skipped this step because I was in a hurry so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON IT *sprinkle Maggie Sauce on top
9.Serve and enjoy

*I didn’t take a picture of the end result so I will take a picture of it later so for now I’ll take a picture of the ingredients

IGNORE THE PICTURE BEHIND THE MAGGIE SAUCE BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TASTING AND BETTER FOR YOU COMING OUT OF THE OVEN!!!!!!!
*the multigrain bread is about as long as a slice is at target and it is only 110 CALORIES!

Well comment if you want me to make a recipe healthy or you just love my blog and want to make me happy!!!😊
Y’all come back now ya here! Until next time.

Hey ya’ll so after a healthy breakfast of almond milk and special k cereal with dried strawberries I for some reason was craving pizza.

So I am not sure if I had mentioned the fact that I have NEVE EVER made healthy pizza before I made first attempt and it was fabulous but I have to say I’d make a few changes. For starters, I used Cassey Ho’s recipe from her blogilates website ( http://www.blogilates.com/recipe-index/healthiest-pizza-in-the-world ). Cassey’s was pretty great but I’m going to give you a few pointers.

1 Serving
Ingredients:
-1/4 cup of oatmeal ( I used old fashioned quaker oats )
-1 egg ( I used one extra large egg )
-1 tablespoon of flax seeds ( I truly have no idea what they will do to change the recipe I guess they help with the consistency? anyways I didn’t have any available so I used 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds)

Instructions:
1.Mix ingredients well
2. Spread out on baking sheet ( I line it with parchment paper so I wouldn’t have to cleanup afterwards)
3.Place for 10 minutes in preheated oven at 350 degrees
4.Remove from oven place sauce on pizza and then toppings
5.Put in oven for 5 more minutes
6.Take out and enjoy
*For this pizza I recommend blending the pizza mix so you get less of a scaly mixtur

Calories in crust: 155
This does not include toppings or sauce
