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?

Warm Gluten-Free Pasta Salad with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushrooms

Gluten-Free Warm or Cold Pasta Salad amps up the flavor with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushroomsor Cold this Pasta Salad with sauteed zucchini, kale, tomatoes and mushrooms
I have to admit when I make a dish like this it's because I'm in a hurry or crazy hungry! My brain always goes to gluten free pasta when I'm hungry, but I don't indulge very often. I try to offset the carbs by not adding meat and adding tons of veggies instead. It's fast to make, satisfying and the cold leftovers are even better the next day!

Oh, the joys of Fall! Cooler weather, and that's huge for us in Florida, squash and pomegranates to cook with, and looking forward to the holidays with friends and family. Here's one of my favorite #holiday salads...

Ginger Honey Kale Salad with pears, cranberries & walnuts, gluten free


Making dinner for the Children's Home and I wanted a salad to go with the organic soup I was making, but all I had was a big head of organic kale from Space Girl Organics.
I'm a firm believer in feeding your kids greens early on, and I love kale, but I worried that it would be too tough or bitter for the little kids.

Skinny Gluten Free Grilled Watermelon & Chicken Spinach Salad

Perfect for a summer desert or add to a salad
I'm crazy about watermelon and grilling it takes it up a notch.  The sweetness of the fruit is enhanced by cooking on the grill and gets a wonderful smoky flavor. We mix it with creamy feta and herbs for a light and refreshing finish to a BBQ. Or try it chopped into my grilled Chicken and Spinach Salad. It's so good!

Skinny GF Orange, Beet and Avocado Salad

We had a great day at the beach yesterday, watching the children play, listening to crashing waves, picking up sea shells,  and just relaxing in our little bit of heaven.  I love the smell of the ocean, the warm breezes, suntan oil, and burgers.  Wendy's is right across the street from the beach.  lol!!  and the smell was making us hungry so my honey volunteered to go get lunch.   He worked so hard to do everything right and even asked them to clean the grill!!  and  he's getting pretty good at explaining cross contamination but then they threw a piece of American Cheese on top.  He looked so sad when I gasped in dismay....most American Cheese has gluten in it, but it smelled so good and he tried so hard that I had to have a tiny bite.  Stupid!! Today I'm miserable and bloated but I'll survive.  I took my probiotics and they do help!  I buy mine at CVS and take one every morning now.  

Skinny Gluten Free Greek Steak Salad

We decided to do a light healthy Skinny Gluten Free  Greek Steak Salad for Easter dinner.  Too hot here in Florida to cook!
 Aldi had great produce on sale recently so I needed to use it up!!
 One steak was plenty and can I say yummmmm.....
 Somehow salad's get really big....
 Oh my, it was good and we have leftovers for lunch today!!

If you haven't tried Aldi's GF hummus you should.  It's wonderful and a great price.  Hope you enjoy!
