Skinny Banana Yogurt Pudding, single serving, gluten free, sugar free

Do you have trouble making healthy breakfast or late night snack choices? My sweet tooth sabotages my healthy good intentions daily with thoughts of granola, cookies, cereal or in my pre-Gluten-Free days, it was Banana Pudding.
Hubby loved my Banana Pudding and we made it often before I went gluten-free. So good with vanilla wafers, pudding and meringue, but time-consuming, not to mention full of sugar and fat!  
Now,  I make myself happy with this luscious gluten-free and sugar-free Skinny Banana Yogurt Pudding that's ready in minutes, has less than 300 calories and it's crazy delicious...

Savoring Saturdays, Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Bars and more!

Welcome back to Savoring Saturdays

We're gearing up for some bad weather from Tropical Storm Erika and I'm busy planning easy meals if the power goes out. 

I bought gluten-free ham, sausages, sandwich and salad makings and I'll be making a few pizza's that are great even cold. Like my favorite Low Carb Crust with Chicken and Roasted Veggies.

Along with meals, I made up a few desserts. I especially like these Chocolate Coconut Bars that are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and grain-free and our Reader's favorite- Smokey and Sweet Peanut Slaw that looks perfect for serving with my ham or spicy sausages.

We stocked up on lots of water and batteries, gas for the generator and if we do lose power? I guess the first meal will be ice cream!  

On to the party! Come link up or just enjoy the recipes!

Here's my favorite from last week:

Flourless Cherry & Pineapple Dump Cake and keeping fit with Perfectly Simple Nutrition Bars

My sister and I want to stay healthy so we started working out twice a week, often in 90+- degree weather. Even with our busy schedules, we meet up at a local coffee shop, enjoy a latte and a healthy snack before we head out to walk the beach for several miles.
It's a great time for both of us, but often, there is little time to enjoy – let alone find – the right healthy snack. Especially for me, as most coffee shops don't carry gluten free snacks.
Today I brought ZonePerfect's Perfectly Simple nutrition bars to share. They are high in protein, 200 calories or less, and gluten-free… they’re the perfect blend of simple, wholesome ingredients in one tasty, on the go snack.

I found the Perfectly Simple Nutrition Bars at my local Target store. The flavors are all of my favorites and I love that they have 11 grams of protein in each bar. Head on over and download a coupon for $1.00 off ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple Bars here!

Gluten Free BLT Pizza with Yogurt Pizza Sauce and Fun Freschetta Family Pizza Nights

Every Friday night is gluten free Pizza night at our house. Hubby and I really enjoy making pizza together and adding our own favorite toppings, but it is a lot of work and takes a good amount of time to make the dough, prepare all of the toppings and get it baked. By the time it's done I'm starving and the dog is laying on the kitchen rug drooling. He's a big fan of pizza too.

That's why when Freschetta asked me to try out their pizza I was intrigued. Could a frozen gluten-free pizza be as good as homemade?

I was thrilled to find that my local Publix on Eau Gallie carries all of the Freschetta Gluten Free Pizzas on Aisle 14. Grab a Freschetta $1.50 off coupon available from 8/16-9/06 before you go!
Fun Freschetta Family Pizza Nights

Freschetta® Gluten Free Pizza is available in two great gluten-free flavors and two convenient sizes, so families can keep the freezer stocked with items to simplify the challenges of following a gluten-free diet.

I bought each flavor and now I can't wait to try them out.

Skinny Gluten-Free Broccoli Salad and Savoring Saturdays

Broccoli Salad is my all time favorite! I drool over it at the deli, but there's no way to know what they put in it! Chances are there's gluten in there somewhere so I have to walk on by. Unfortunately, most broccoli salad dressings are full of fat and sugar too. My new Skinny Gluten-Free Broccoli Salad is much healthier for us and it's so good that I've been eating it as a meal!
 Skinny version of fresh broccoli salad that tastes even better than the full fat version. Gluten-Free, Low-Fat and amazing!

I lightened up the dressing and cut way back on the sugar! You will never miss the fat and calories.

I can honestly say, as a Broccoli salad lover, that it tastes just as good as the original recipe, and maybe even better!  Are you a broccoli lover too?
