Top 5 Healthy Recipes for 2011

2011 was a big year for my husband and I. After he had a major operation we were told, that he absolutely had to lose weight. Even though it wasn’t doctors orders, I knew I needed to as well. At first, I thought my life as a foodie was over. What a silly thought! There were so many amazing resources available to help us navigate our new food journey. We’ve tried many dinners under 500 calories, the best of which I’ve shared with you. However, there are a few that really stood out to us this year. With the New Year upon us, I thought this would be a perfect time to share our favorites for your New Years Resolution!

Happy New Year friends!


Chicken with Creamy Chive Sauce, an amazing flavorful dish that by no means tastes low-calorie!


Soy and Cherry Cola Braised Pork Shoulder was a meal that we ate on for days and I was so happy to do so!


Marinated London Broil with Blue Cheese Sauce. Such a flavorful dish with a sauce that you don’t even have to cook!


Chicken Shawarma. A very close tie for first. The flavor of these little sandwiches can’t be beat!

Last but not least….#1

Tuscan Garlic Chicken. Without a doubt, the best “healthy” recipe we’ve tried all year and even though it just squeaks over 500 calories it was by far the biggest hit of the website this year!

Happy Eating!

    I have to try the chicken with creamy chive sauce – it’s been on my must-make list forever! I’m so glad you and your husband were able to find a healthy lifestyle that’s yummy, too. Healthy is still full of flavor 😉 Happy New Year!

    That Tuscan Garlic Chicken looks so good! Definitely going to have to make that as well as the chicken with chive sauce, though everything here looks delicious. Here’s to a healthy and happy new year! 🙂
