Indian Fried Bread Tacos 058

Oofda Tacos aka as Indian Fried Bread Tacos are the perfect street fair food! Top the fried bread off with whatever you're little taco lover inside you desires. Ever since making that Barbacao Beef this weekend, I've had to think of clever ways to get rid of the left overs. That's the fun part, and where recipes will start to develop in my head. Some are Weight Watcher friendly, and others are not so much Weight Watcher friendly. Like these Indian Tacos. For my Oofda tacos, I topped ...

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls 011

I took my famous Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp recipe and turned it into a shrimp roll.  When you're craving a lobster roll use shrimp instead. Shrimp is much cheaper than Lobster is. I WISH I could eat lobster every week of my life and live in a mansion, with my own personal chef. That would grand wouldn't it? The shrimp is tossed in a spicy yogurt sauce with Sweet Chili and Sriracha sauce. The first time I had Bang Bang shrimp was when I ate at the Ground Round, but their version of Bang Bang ...

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce 011

Whenever I want to eat something healthy for dinner, I go for my go-to meal. Salmon and steamed broccoli. I ALWAYS have salmon in my freezer and that one green vegetable that looks like a little tree too. I'm always looking for different ways to flavor salmon and teriyaki is the way to go. Sure, you could use one of those store bought bottles of teriyaki marinade, but I prefer to make my own. You can cook the sauce in a small pan until the sauce becomes this thick syrupy consistency. I'm ...

Bacon and Cheeseburger Pizza

bacon cheeseburger pizza 016

This weekend was filled with Northern Lights, a red moon, and fireworks. 50+ some mosquito bites later, and it was all worth it though. Now, it's back to the work grind. On Sunday when I got home, I made a cheese burger pizza. It was the perfect way to use up the left over ground beef. It's your typical cheeseburger but transformed into a pizza. What are your favorite burger toppings? Mine was always pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, and bacon.  Some people like raw onions on their ...

Skinny Creamy Mac and Cheese

creamy mac and cheese 018

This post is in preparation for an upcoming post sometime in the next day or two here.  Just wait until you see what I plan on doing with the leftovers tomorrow. :) This creamy mac and cheese is only 9 WWP+ per serving! Instead of making a roux with butter, the flour is added to milk and whisked until the flour is dissolved. Then the milk gets poured into the remaining milk mixture and it thickens! Who needs butter when making mac and cheese? Some panko bread crumbs get toasted on top of the ...

Skinny Taco Pizza with Corn, Avocado, and Tomatoes

skinny taco pizza with chive sauce 013

Can we talk about this pizza? This vegetarian pizza with refried beans, tomatoes, corn, avocado and scallions? I'm not even a vegetarian and I loved this pizza! I was debating on whether or not to put some black beans or olives on there for color. If you like black beans or olives by all means go for it. Pizza is awesome because anything goes. Have you ever had Baboli Pizza Crust? It's usually located by all the pizza ingredients. The whole wheat pizza crust is actually really good and I ...

Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini

blt caprese sandwich 010

I've been taking this new gym class on Tuesday and Thursday nights called Tabatas. Tabatas is an intense training class for 30 minutes where you do so many moves as you can in 20 seconds and you repeat that 7 times.  6 or  7 times, something like that. The killer for me is always burpees. Those things SUCK. The thing I love about that class is, is that I sweat every time. There's just something about sweating that gives me a high.   This Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini is actually fa ...
