These aren’t like “substitute a carrot for doritos because they’re both orange and are crunchy.” These are genuinely good and good for you!
For That Sweet Tooth:
1) Billy G’s Breakfast Brownies
Billy Germanakos from The Biggest Loser offers this brownie recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth while still packing the protein you need to start your day.
5.3-oz. container of non-fat Greek yogurt (or non-fat cottage cheese)
6 egg whites
2/3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
Artificial sweetener, add to taste
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (20 calories)
1/2 cup Blueberries (40 calories)
1/2 cup Strawberries (22 calories)
1 banana (108 calories)
Blend the egg whites and yogurt. Mix into a bowl with 2/3 cup of plain oatmeal. Add artificial sweetener while blending. Let sit and soak for a few minutes. Use cooking spray to create a non-stick surface, then cook batter into pancakes
2) Chocolate Ice Cream/Smoothie
In a blender, put 1 or 2 frozen bananas, 1/3 cup of water, and 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder. Blend and enjoy!
3) Baked Apple with Walnuts, Cinnamon, and Honey
*Tip: Drizzle a little natural honey on your fruit, and you’ll get some added sweetness complete with a dose of vitamins, nutrients!*
Directions: In a large bowl, mix 2 oz. of crushed walnuts with 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and the juice of one lemon. Core two apples, score the skin around their middles, and place in a baking dish. Fill each apple generously with the nut mix, then bake for 30-40 minutes at 300 degrees until golden and soft through.
4) Don’t Forget The Good Ol’ Pb&J
Just get rid of the jelly and add only a dollop of peanut butter onto toasted whole wheat bread.
