Easy Almond Butter Granola

Easy Almond Butter Granola - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

Granola. It’s not exactly the sexiest food, is it? More often than not, it’s code for hippy-dippy and hyper-eco-friendly. Granola is also a source of great confusion. It’s frequently pitched as a hearty, healthy breakfast option, but an alarming number of the store bought options are loaded with sugar, fat, and calories… and are sometimes […]

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 […]

Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf

Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

It’s zucchini season! And while we all know that this super-versatile, ultra low-calorie summer squash is great baked, grilled, broiled, or spiralized, it also can make fantastically moist baked goods…. like my Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf! Perfect for a quick morning bite, a satisfying dessert, or a solution to that 3pm donut craving, this […]

Pom-Apple Spice Quinoa Granola

Pom-Apple Spice Quinoa Granola

It’s pretty hard to find someone that doesn’t like granola–the nutty-crunchy-dried-fruit goodness is pretty hard to resist.  But once a synonym for ‘healthy’, granola has fallen off of it’s high horse. News segments have pointed out store-bought brands soaring calorie counts, blog posts have railed about excessive amounts of sugar, and countless eyes have skimmed over articles […]

Skinny Banana Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Muffins

Skinny Buttermilk Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

My John’s birthday was last Saturday. And you know what John’s birthday means? Carrot Cake. My super-duper-awesome carrot cake. And that carrot cake calls for buttermilk…. which means, after the candles are blown out and the presents are opened, I’m stuck with half a carton of buttermilk. I hate wasting food, so I started brainstorming […]

Smoothie Heaven

P1110794

I love smoothies. A LOT. Maybe it’s because I adore ice cream. Maybe it’s because I love a meal that tastes delicious and is 100% clean. Maybe it’s because they’re full of vitamins and minerals, and they keep me unbelievably full well into the afternoon. Whatever it is, I love ’em. Because of this, I’ve […]

Protein Waffles

If you’re a follower of my blog, you know my Protein Pancakes are one of my favourite breakfasts. I make them all the time! But this morning, I felt like something a new– little different, a little exotic …. so I cheated on my pancakes. With Protein Waffles!   Weighing in under 200 calories and […]

Mini Coconut Blueberry Oat Muffins

I love to experiment with skinny version of otherwise off-limits foods. Muffins are usually full of sugar and butter, but these little baby versions are super clean and delicious when you feel like ‘just a little something’. They’re gluten free, have virtually no fat, full of fibre, and are a great way to have a […]

Jacked Up Greek Yogourt

P1100244

At this point, we all know the benefits of greek yogourt—high in protein, low in fat, creamy and satisfying. But just eating yogourt all the time can get a little boring, no? Plus, the kind that is the best for you (plain, 0% fat has the lowest calories, highest protein, and lowest sugar) is pretty […]
