Skinny Mini Not-So-Red Velvet Cookies


Dessert can be the most unsatisfying part of a healthy-eater’s day. I mean, oranges are great and everything, but they aren’t exactly the ooey-gooey-chocolatey-goodness that we all crave…. which is why I love to create ‘skinny’ desserts. Skinny desserts like my Skinny Mini Not-So-Red-Velvet Cookies. These little beauties have that decadent, punchy, chocolate kick of […]

Easy Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts


I grew up not liking brussel sprouts. All I remember is my mother saying something about them tasting like an ash tray (how she knew what I that tasted like, I don’t know…) 20 years later, though, brussel sprouts are the new cool vegetable in town. Served chopped, baked, or grilled in the trendiest of eateries, […]

Spicy Quinoa and Chopped Kale Salad


Dinner side dishes can get pretty darn ho-hum. I mean, I love a good spinach salad as much as the next girl, but sometimes my plate is in need of a change…. a spicy change. Which is why my spicy quinoa and chopped kale salad totally hits the spot! Full of nutrients, fibre, and taste, […]

Asian Edamame, Mango, and Bulgur Salad


  Though there are few foods I love more than my world-famous quinoa salad, sometimes a girl just needs a change. Which is why I came up with this fabulous asian salad! With the same vegan, high protein, 110% clean appeal as my quinoa salad, this super-filling and tasty treat can be lunch, dinner, or […]

Trick Pasta


Pasta is a majorly forbidden fruit for those of us worried about our bikini bodies. We’ve been told, for years now, that nothing will pack on the jiggly pounds faster than pasta. Well, I’m here with a low-carb, low-cal, gluten-free  solution to that problem. How is this possible?! My trick pasta, of course! I’m going […]

Thai Shrimp, Mango, and Avocado Spinach Salad

Thai Shrimp, Mango, & Avocado Spinach Salad - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

This super tasty salad is not only 100% clean, but will fill up even the most skeptical salad-eater. I like it with shrimp, but it would work just as well with scallops, crab, or even lobster! It’s the perfect dinner to get you out of your winter food rut, and into the spirit of Spring! […]

Simple Sweet Potato Wedges


When most people think of sweet potatoes, they think of that semi-gross marshmallow topped dish that their Great Aunt brings to Thanksgiving every year. Admittedly, not the most appealing– but the sweet potato doesn’t have to be this way! Far better for you than their plain-old-potato cousin, sweet potatoes fall into the all important ‘healthy […]

Molly’s World Famous Quinoa Salad


Ok, maybe not world famous. But it should be! If I had to pick one recipe to keep with me on a desert island, it would be this one. 100% clean, filling, vegan, gluten free, and deeeelicious. Not only that, but it is easy, flexible and super versatile. Have it for lunch, dinner, a snack, or a […]
