So we aren’t sure about you guys, but sometimes eating healthy can be kinda tricky. That is why this week’s DIY/How To post is about how to make Spaghetti Squash! You know that healthy Spaghetti pasta alternative everyone has been going crazy about!? Well we found a great How To on one of our favorite sites, Dashing Dish which is a website packed with healthy alternatives of classic comfort foods. To some, just trying new foods is a big step let alone actually making them. That is why we feel that the best and easiest way to get people interested in trying new healthy recipes is to show them how easy they actually are to make. After seeing it for yourself you’ll be saying, “Spaghetti Squash is a cinch!”
So we all love those guilty comfort foods, right? How about the idea of those favorite foods still being tasty without all of the calories? Impossible you may say, but not so much!
DashingDish.com is a website developed by a young lady named Katie Farrell who has taken guilt-ridden comfort foods and made them into tasty goodness without all the remorseful calories.
Her dishes range from Skinny Red Velvet Cupcakes to Mini Mexican Pizzas (yum!). On Dashing Dish not only do all of the recipes include the caloric amount, Katie also makes it simple for anyone participating in Weight Watchers by including the “points” each dish is worth as well! On top of including caloric values, Katie also shares her simple tips to jazz up an ordinary workout to make it more fun, intense and worthwhile.
Dashing Dish is based upon an idea that living a healthy and spiritual lifestyle doesn’t have to be rigid and boring, but motivational and fun. Reading a little bit of Katie’s story you learn that she was inspired to create Dashing Dish because as a teenager and young adult, Katie faced challenges with her diet, exercise, and health habits in general but over came them by finding spiritual inspiration and realizing she (and everyone) can still eat yummy foods just in a healthier way. (Hallelujah!)
Now, Katie’s recipes have been featured on one of our personal favorite sites (and it’s also how we discovered her) Fitsugar.com and by the looks of her blog she is happy, healthy, and loving life! Everyone go check out DashingDish.com and download a recipe, try it, and let us know what you think! There is something for everyone, even *Gluten Free recipes! Enjoy!
