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

Okay so this recipe I am going to give credit to Cassey Ho from Blogilates.
It is a delicious banana muffin recipe but it can easily be poured into another container to make banana bead. I had this with some coffee for dinner and I’ll tell you it BLEW MY MIND!

I actually calculated and I realize I should probably do this for all my recipes but the amount of calories it had which I will do for my recipes from now on in case you want to keep tabs on that.

Ingredients:
-1 cup of old fashioned quaker oats (Cassey didn’t specify what type of oats but I used this type and it was Amazayn (yes I am a Directioner))
-1 banana ( I used one medium ripe banana)
-1/4 cup of almond milk ( lucky for me I absolutely love almond milk so I had some handy to make this recipe, Cassey used 1/4 cup of sweetened original almond milk but I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk and since it was unsweetened I added 2 packs of truvia but if you don’t have it 2 teaspoons of brown sugar)
-1/4 cup eggs whites ( I personally didn’t measure I only used one egg whites)

Instructions:
1.Mash banana
2.Mix the rest of the ingredients in
4.Put in muffin tray (it only makes 4 servings so you only need to line 4 molds with parchment paper)
5.Bake in 350 degrees preheated oven for 15 minutes

Calories:114 per muffin (4 servings)

Okay so that was Casseys’s version and everything in parenthesis was my touch to it but also I added a few more treats. 馃檪

I took two packs of truvia sweetener (2 teaspoons brown sugar will work fine too) and melted it over medium heat until syrupy to make a glaze for the muffins. I would have made a cream cheese frosting but I didn’t have any cream cheese. But to make it I would have melted 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of 1/3 less fat plain cream cheese with a little truvia and poured it over the muffins.

Also my mom loves zest so I got freshly zested lime to the top of her muffin. We also enjoyed this with some queso fresco which is part of our weekly grocery list with some coffee.

Well that’s all for today folks leave suggestions or comment a recipe you want made healthy.
Y’all come back now ya here. Until next time.

Hey I know I’ve been uploading this blog like crazy and I have still one moe recipe to go which I enjoyed for dinner.But anyways I promised you a good healthy tilapia recipe so here it is.

Ingredients:
-3 tilapia fillets (right out of the freezer don’t let them thaw or you will have a huge mess but them let them stay frozen to cook)
-garlic salt
-sazon goya ( it is called adobo all purpose seasoning with pepper it is tall with a red top and yellow label (you can find it at wal mart))
-1 tablespoon of olive oil

Instructions:
1.Take tilapia fillets out of freezer and cut them out of the plastic wraps
2.Season them
3.Cook them in a pan with olive oil over medium heat until edges are browned

Serve and enjoy! I love adding freshly squeezed lime juice on top. This tilapia is simple and delicious it goes perfectly with the apple cider vinegar and olive oil marinade for the vegetables with also a little of organic or plain wild rice.

*note to self even though we are cooking healthy it is important to include a healthy even if small portion from all your food groups so please add some even if a small portion of carbs it can even be a delicious tabbouleh salad or couscous or even some roasted potatoes which are amazing with some olive oil and a few sprigs of rosemary

Remember to give me suggestions I love them and if you want me to make a healthy version of a recipe you love just comment!
Until next time!

Hi it’s me again!

I ‘m here to give ya’ll a marinade recipe to die for. Before you ask yes it is my own creation and I must sat it is delicious and takes grilled veggies to a whole new level.

Okay so get recipe foe a simple marinade that will tickle your taste buds (yes i know it’s a Mama Mia quote but I love the movie so don’t judge)

Ingredients:
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
– 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic (can be fresh or jared I guess that is what you call it)
-1 teaspoon Maggi seasoning (you can find this at Publix it gives an amazing tang to marinades it it is a small but long black jar with yellow a label and yellow top)
– salt to taste
-pepper to taste

Step-by-Step Instructions:
1.Crush garlic slightly with the back of a spoon
2. Mix everything in a small bowl

I know I just blew you mind it is that simple and amazingly delicious.
You don’t need to go along with what the title says the marinade tastes amazing on chicken, fish, AND the veggies. But in case you want to know what vegetables I use here is the list:

-zucchini
-squash
-eggplant
-onion
-red bell pepper
-mushrooms (I only eat portebello mushrooms or baby bella and occasionally shiitake but mostly big portebello mushrooms especially on pizza ugh don’t even get me started I hopefully will be uploading a pizza crust recipe I will have to experiment though because I have never made a healthy version of it but I will do my best)

Sorry that i drag on in a parenthesis but once I get a though in my head I have to finish writing it. Later on today I will give you a very simple way to make an excellent tilapia to accompany your amazing GRILLED ( emphasis on grilled because that is how they taste best) veggies.

If you have any suggestions or want me to make a healthy version of a recipe you love leave a comment and I promise to get back to you on that.

Until next time.

Happy Fourth of July Everyone!!

This is Hanna with Delicious2Nutritious! In my blog i plan on making healthy recipes for everyone to enjoy. I personally love herbs and spices, chicken and fish, and fruits and veggies. I enjoy cooking international foods considering I have a hispanic background so I love cooking typical healthy dishes from all corners of the world but I am a southern girl.

I am here right now though not to give you my life story but healthy recipes or foods for your own enjoyment.

So I will start off with my special Fourth of July breakfast.I made french toast, scrambled eggs, and coffee for my family and let me tell you they loved it

Okay to start off with the french toast i didn’t use white bread or any type of really processed breads for this I used a good multigrain bread from Target.I actually should list the ingredients before I tell you how to make it though so i am goign to do just that.

Ingredients:
-4 slices of multigrain bread ( you don’t not have to use target as long as you get a good loaf)
-1 tablespoon of Brummel and Brown nonfat yogurt butter
– 1 and a half teaspoon of brown sugar (which is really nice because it isn’t really processed but if you are like me you can use truvia which is a 0 calorie all natural sweetener)
-1 teaspoon of of vanilla extract
-3 whisked eggs
-1 teaspoon cinnamon

Okay so first if it isn’t already obvious you whisk the eggs and pour them on a plate. Step 2 – you mix in the sugar vanilla extract and cinnamon. Next coat the slices of bread thoroughly and put them on a heated pan with the tablespoon of butter to cook. I personally do every recipe by looking out after the ingredients as I go but I do have a good estimation. Anyways because of the information I just told you it should be quite obvious that I cant tell you how long to cook each side but cook it on medium heat until each side is brown. They can be slightly blackened but only slightly if it is too black then assure you it is burnt.
This makes 3 serving sizes even though it is 4 slices I was making breakfast for my dad and he does quite a lot more than I do also I am going to post a picture of breakfast and the reason it does not look like multigrain bread is because it isn’t I took a picture of my dads plate and he doesn’t like multigrain so I made with a nice healthy tuscan bread.

Okay on to the eggs:
-1 tablespoon of extra vigin olive oil
-3 extra large eggs
– salt to taste
-pepper to taste
-I also added hatch chile cheddar cheese because i felt sneaky and also because I love cheese and I went to whole foods yesterday and my mom bought me a ton of yummy cheeses along with other healthy yet sneaky goodies but I will tell you about my loot later (you do not have to use cheese)

1. Whisk the eggs
2.Add salt and pepper I think i add more pepper than salt because ever since I was little my mom and I cooked with little salt
3. Pour the olive oil into a pan that is heated at medium heat
4. Pour eggs into the pan
5. Cook until taste I personally like eggs that are still slightly wet and juicy so I don’t cook them till they are dry.
This is also 3 servings.

This is definitely a fun delicious and nutritious recipe for home. Also if there is a recipe you love and just wish it was healthy comment and I will do my best for all the lovely readers!
Until next time.
