Crab Stuffed Salmon

What can be better than seafood stuffed with more seafood? The crab stuffing really elevates the salmon, adding an element of creaminess and richness without the calories of a typical decadent sauce.

Crab Rangoon Dip

Have you ever ordered crab rangoons at a Chinese or Thai restaurant? They are delicious little parcels of crab and cream cheese wrapped in a fried wonton. Since we’re trying to eat healthy here, let’s skip the fried outside and just make the filling into a dip.

Shrimp Po’ Boy Bowl

Have you ever had a Po’ Boy from Louisiana? They are massive sandwiches with toasty French bread and typically some sort of fried seafood. I decided to lighten it up by baking the shrimp and making it into a salad.

Cuban Wrap

I love recipes like the Slow Cooker Cuban Pulled Pork because it always makes such versatile leftovers! Cooking for a family of two can be difficult, because while you definitely end up using the leftovers the next night or for lunch, sometimes you get tired of the same thing.

Slow Cooker Cuban Pulled Pork

I love meals where you can set it and forget it in the slow cooker and pulled pork is perfect for that. This one is Cuban style, which has a citrus flair to it. I also used cardamom instead of the typical coriander because I thought the citrus notes of the cardamom would compliment the oranges.

Bolognese Sauce

I love making bolognese because it’s full of veggies and is really filling. This recipe can be fast with only a little bit of simmer time, or you can let it simmer for hours if you have the time to really develop the flavors. This makes a large portion, so you can even put some in mason jars, seal them shut and save for later!

Baked Coconut Shrimp with Mango Habanero Sauce

looooooove coconut shrimp, but it is usually fried. A simple way to make it healthier – bake it instead! This baked coconut shrimp provides the same great, sweet crunch as it’s friend counterpart but three’s no oil involved at all! No oil = no messy cleanup from oil spattering everywhere and not having to be a slave to the stove waiting for them to be done!

Coconut Rice

Replacing water with coconut milk is such an easy way to impart a lot of great flavor to your dish! I’m going to start using it with curries and tropical dishes.

Lemon Ricotta Raspberry Banana Pancakes

I have a confession to make – I don’t count calories. I believe in everything in moderation and why not eat what you love and make healthier tweaks? So I’ve been thinking lately, why do I put calories on here if that’s not even something I do for myself? It’s because of this that I’ve decided to stop doing that and continue to focus on recipes that feel like you’re indulging but lean towards healthy.
