Who doesn’t love chili with all the fixings? But this is a feel good meal from our Skinny Chef that doesn’t have all the fat and calories of traditional chili recipes. Turkey packs in the protein with a mere 0.5 gram of fat per serving! So go ahead and sprinkle on some cheese. In the mood for a burrito? Wrap up 1 cup of the chili in a whole grain tortilla.
Here’s a meal from our Skinny Chef hearty enough for even the biggest appetites! Grapefruit juice adds sweetness to the topping and yogurt give the corn bread a tender consistency without using saturated-fat-loaded butter. Adding superfoods like spinach and flax double the vitamin content and add important nutrients like omega 3s that you won’t get from the traditional recipe.
Besides great flavor, the salsa adds tang and plenty of vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidants; all of which are important for maintaining beautiful skin! I like to be lean and use turkey instead of beef, that cuts up to 40 grams of fat compared to traditional burger recipes.
Enjoy this Italian classic enriched with lycopene from two sources, tomato and pink grapefruit. The grapefruit juice adds tang to the tomato sauce, but no one will ever guess that you added citrus to your recipe. Whole grain pasta and flax will help you to feel full with heart healthy fiber.
This low-fat treat is ideal for your next brunch or movie night – it uses turkey bacon and creamy yogurt-flavored mayo to cut over half the fat without losing flavor. Tucking in spinach adds a super food boost to this classic and provides vitamin C, folate, and Vitamin K that iceberg lettuce can’t deliver.
