MAGAZINE; QUINOA MEET AMERICA

I love having the opportunity to spread my passion for cooking sugar free by using different outlets. And this month I was able to have 4 recipes published in the Healthy Living Magazine! The recipes range from smoothies to fish but are each loaded with plenty of flavor and of course healthy because they are all sugar free using natural sweetener Lite and Sweet. Go pick up a copy of the magazine to get more insight on each recipe!

These 4 recipes are all different in flavor but share one similar philosophy; using a better sugar when needed than table sugar. I use a combination of Xylitol and Erythritol, when sugar is needed, in these recipes. Lite and Sweet works great when cooking all kinds of different recipes because you can use the same amount that calls for sugar you can substitute for Lite and Sweet 1 per 1.

It also maintains the flavor you would get if it had sugar in it, but lessens the toxins and calories you would normally be putting into your body. Each of these recipes has refreshing ingredients including an assortment of berries, plain and fat-free yogurt, fresh veggies, quinoa, tomatoes, brown rice and delectable flaky ecologically sourced seafood. The recipes range from side dish and snack to yummy drinks and main course go from sweet to savory. But no matter how different they might come across, they all have one thing in common; they are all sugar free.

The first 2 of 4 recipes are both berry smoothies! One being an assortment of berries and the other using strawberries. My secret ingredient for both of them is the liquid content that goes into them! Rather than just water I like to use a variety of things such as; milk, lemon juice and coconut water. Any of those liquids amplifies the flavors of the berries and mixes well together. I’ll also admit that I am a banana junky, so each of these smoothies includes bananas! They are both easy to make, good to drink for a meal replacement, sip through out the day, and are refreshing in this warm weather we are finally getting!

I am a big lover of combining sweet and savory to my dishes, so I couldn’t just do 2 sweet smoothies. Which is why I put in a healthy, quinoa salad and an oven-roasted halibut fillet. When you look at the list of ingredients you might get overwhelmed by how many there are, but you can always add or take away depending on your flavor preferences. I personally love adding seasonings to all of my dishes so for both the quinoa salad and the halibut fillet the spices and seasonings were a must. Both of these recipes could be used as the main dish and they will do nothing but shine! They are delicious, flavorful and always healthy.

As I mentioned, I love sharing my passion for all things healthy eating. I learned from reading and watching others and love that I can do the same and share other good healthy dishes from other cooks and bakers that I admire. Check out these recipes on the new magazine that is out in book or health food Stores and let me know what you think! I love hearing from my readers! As well as connecting with on social media. I’m on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter BakeSugarFree and you can also watch and learn how to cook sugar free on my YouTube channel.
