I ate all kinds of wonderful things this Christmas. Most of them were either sweet or fat-filled, or both. So, I've been rummaging through my cookbooks and hunting around the internet for some healthier treats to eat this week as I come down from what feels like a month-long sugar high.
This chef salad from Vignettes looks delicious. I love the way she displays it because this would make for a perfect serving dish for New Year's guests.
This low-fat chili from Comfy in the Kitchen has made more than 1 appearance in my kitchen already. It's delicious - and that goes a long way considering what some of the low-fat alternatives I've eaten taste like.
My sweet tooth is not entirely gone, but I have been trying to find more recipes that use honey as a sweetener or that use less refined white sugar in them. This honey-sweetened Meyer Lemon Curd from The Nourishing Gourmet is going on my to-do list. Our grocery has Meyer lemons out now, and I've been curious to try doing something with them.
And if you didn't get enough poultry for Christmas, this Honey-Mustard chicken from Growing Home looks like it will be all kinds of yummy. I'll be trying this one out later on this week!
