Flourless Pumpkin Spice Protein Cookies

FlourlessPumpkin

“Cookie” might not be the right word to use here. Sort of like my popular banana-based protein cookies, these are low-cal, sugar free, vegan, gluten-free little baked morsels of pumpkiny goodness. And while their natural sweetness easily satisfies a dessert craving, they’re no one trick ponies; they’re great as a quick breakfast on-the-go or a hunger […]

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

As you’re probably able to tell by now, my garden is producing a ton of zucchinis this season…. which is great!

Balsamic-Dijon Roasted Radishes

I’ll be honest: my radish-related experiences are pretty minimal. I know I should plant them early in the Spring, I know that they’re ready to harvest early in the season, and I know that they’re a crispy-crunchy-spicy veggie that’s nice to have in the fridge alongside some carrots and cucumbers. That’s about it.  But if […]

Skinny Tag-a-longs

Girl Scout Cookie season. Once a year, women all over the country summon all of the strength they have to avoid the little girls in green selling boxes of temptation. We dodge them at the grocery store. We run from them outside of the bank. And don’t even get me started on avoiding them at […]
