Every time I catch a whiff of french toast cooking, I’m transported back to my grandmother’s. I can practically taste the sweetness of that first bite.

This much more slimming recipe bakes the toast instead of frying – so the smell will be sure to wake up the entire household in a pleasant mood. The fact that it’s slimming? Nobody needs to know.

Spaghetti Squash with Thai Peanut Sauce [Best Choice]

One of the things I love the most about spaghetti squash is how versatile it really is. But all by itself, it can taste a bit…boring. That’s not the case in this Thai Peanut Sauce recipe.

The tangy peanut sauce adds just enough spice to transform this dish into an exotic side you can enjoy with your Asian dinner.

Slimming Tip: Use lite coconut milk instead of full fat coconut milk, and you can shave almost half of the fat from this recipe.

Edamame Salad [Best Choice]

Fresh salads add quite a bit of zest to a meal, but most of the time they’re not exactly filling. This colorful salad has high fiber/high protein edamame as its main ingredient. And the tomato, corn and red onion also ensure you stay full long after the meal is over.

Banana Blender Muffins [Better Choice]

Most muffins are just a glorified dessert, but this recipe is slightly different. Instead of using flour, you’re relying on high fiber foods to get the same delicious taste of regular muffins with a lot more fiber and protein – nutrients your body needs.

Slimming Tip: Though these muffins are healthier, they are still a dessert – so enjoy them as a treat once or twice a week instead of something you have on a daily basis.

Chicken Quinoa Bowls [Better Choice]

You don’t have to be a chicken lover to enjoy these amazing dinner bowls, because the author gives alternatives for vegetarians and vegans alike to try. But this delicious, diabetic friendly recipe is a great example how to enjoy chicken and still lose weight – by serving it on a bed of tasty quinoa, surrounded by colorful veggies and topped with a bold tahini sauce.
