Food Friday: “Skinny” Recipes

Eating healthy is hard for me because I like food.  I like yummy, tasty food and finding food that has flavor and is still low in calories has been one of my biggest challenges.  I stumbled across Skinny Taste and decided to give a few of the recipes a try and to my delight I’ve found food that is yummy, tasty and low in calories.

My absolute favorite is the steak and cheese sandwiches.   I deviated from the recipe slightly by deglazing the pan with white wine and sautéed the mushrooms in it.  It added a few calories but is delicious.  Other than that, I followed the recipe faithfully and my family loved it.  It’s 350 calories including the bread, but not my addition of the wine.

Tasty Italian at less than 200 calories!  Woo hoo!
