Dark Chocolate Football Truffles

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter & Cookie Dough Truffles - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

Dessert tends to become an afterthought on Super Bowl Sunday, but after all of the spicy chicken and cheesy dips, you’ll want a little something sweet! These cute little football-shaped truffles are easy to make ahead of time and are great for kids and grown-ups alike.

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! Not only are they tasty grilled, steamed, or baked, but they are incredibly moist (and healthy!) in baked goods (just check out my 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 […]

Skinny Tag-a-longs! DOAFFG Skinny Girl Scout Cookie Series

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 […]

We want our loved ones to make healthy choices… but some are easier to convince than others.
