Craig and I are still trying out new, healthier recipes. These next three recipes came from www.thegraciouspantry.com. It is an AWESOME website that has a lot of "clean eating" or healthy recipes. I LOVE this site! Yes, eating healthy does require a lot of ingredients (and some of the ingredients can be expensive), but at this point, I would rather pay more to eat healthy and feel better about myself. For the most part, I made each of these step by step from the site...however, I did change a few things. Instead of typing the entire instructions, I will just provide the link to where I found the original recipe.
Blueberry French Toast Casserole - The only thing I changed about this is I used unsweetend vanilla almond milk instead of just plain unsweetened almond milk. The next time I make this, I think I am going to try it with strawberries!
Baked Italian Ziti -With this meal, I used ground beef instead of ground turkey (I am just not a fan of ground turkey :( I also used gluten free pasta instead of whole wheat pasta, and I did not add in the honey. I wanted my daughter to be able to eat it, and babies aren't supposed to have honey until 1 year...and it was great even without it! :)
Clean Eating Brownies - For this one, I did not make the topping..I just made the brownies and they are good! I used unsweetened chocolate chips instead of the grain sweetened chocolate chips. Also, if you have never bought almond butter, it is good but very expensive! So we used a 12 oz jar of almond butter then added in a little natural peanut butter (instead of buying a 16 oz jar of almond butter which is ridiculous!). These brownies are so good with some natural peanut butter on the top or with sugar free caramel...or both :) haha
