Tuesday Treats: Skinny Eats

Ever the Pinterest addict, I often turn to my boards to brighten up my weekly grocery list. On a mission to eat cleaner and leaner, I've pinned many the healthy treat—some which turned out oh-so-bad, but many that were as delicious as the "real" thing. My favorites from this past week:

Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes: Taking me straight back to my college days and our funfetti cravings—sprinkles and colors and frosting, oh my!
110 calories

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies: A favorite childhood cookie, these are perfect, easy, and the mix is freezable to pull at for a snack in a moment's notice.
80 calories

Chocolate Muffins (made with greek yogurt and applesauce): Hello, new breakfast treat.
58 calories

Hmm... I'm noticing a chocolate trend here. Now for real food that doesn't involve sugar (or in this case, a sugar substitute):

Skinny baked mac-and-cheese: Just trust me—make it.

Butternut squash "mashed potatoes": I doubted until I tried, but yes, these do actually taste like delicious mashed potatoes—with no carbs lingering in the body afterwards.

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas: Think bagel bites, people. Skinny, healthy bagel bites.
66 calories

Secret sidenote: my favorite site for healthy/clean/skinny/protein-packed/gluten-free/whatever type of meal plan you are looking is Dashing Dish. This girl has got. it. going. on. There, you'll find essentially anything you're looking to incorporate into your daily diet.
Bon appetite!
