Espresso Mousse THM-FP

Coffee, every day, any time, any way!! I enjoy coffee and desserts so why not combine the two into a light refreshing Mousse. Many desserts are full of fats and calories. This Espresso Mousse is full of flavor and protein but light in fats and calories. It is a tasty ending to a meal or for a bedtime snack. I garnished this Mousse with a scoop of fat-free Greek Yogurt flavored with THM vanilla extract and Gentle Sweet, Espresso Powder, and 12 Lily’s chocolate chips to keep it within the guidelines for a FP.

No-knead Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough Bread THM-E

After the busyness of the past few weeks, I got to spend all day in my kitchen doing something I love, Sourdough!! By now most of you all should know that I love to create recipes using sourdough starter. There is something so rewarding about taking flour, water, and salt and creating a warm crusty loaf of bread. Best of all, most of my family enjoys eating the recipes I create. Tonight this bread was served with Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup for the men and I also made Beefy Cabbage Soup for myself.

Sweet Potato Skins THM-E

This post was created in partnership with Ninja and I received a complimentary product but all opinions in this post are my own.

Some days I forget that healthy carbs are so important in our diet, too. Today, I was in my basement and saw three bushels of sweet potatoes that we harvested from our garden last fall. My husband had wrapped each sweet potato individually in newspaper and packed them in crates. They are still as nice as when we first harvested them. I decided to try something different with them. Roasted Potato Skins were a former treat for our family and sweet potatoes worked wonderful for a healthy option. They were a hit with our family and I hope you will enjoy them, too. The Air-Fry Crisping with the Ninja® Foodi™ Pressure Cooker created a caramelizing crispness to these sweet potatoes.

Have you ever walked past in bagel shop in the city and wondered if you will find a healthy on-plan one? These sourdough bagels have a chewy crust and a dense interior just like those from a specialty shop. The dough for these bagels can be mixed and allowed to ferment in the fridge overnight. They are then cooked and baked the following day. You can top them with any topping of your choice or even leave them plain. I mixed a Homemade Everything Bagel Topping for those pictured below. A favorite of mine is toast a split bagel and top with just a tiny bit of cultured butter.
