Salba® Banana Nut Mini-Muffins

Salba® Banana Nut Mini-Muffins...

I talked about the wonders of Salba in the Salba Anytime Muffins posting, but some of that information begs to be repeated! This is good stuff! Gram for gram, Salba® provides 8x more Omega 3s than salmon, 25% more fiber than flax, 6x more calcium than whole milk, 30% more antioxidants than blueberries, and much more. Salba® is all-natural, has no trans-fats, very few carbohydrates, and is certified Non-GMO, Vegan,...
Salba® Anytime Muffins!

Salba® Anytime Muffins!...

Most people have heard about the benefits of eating flax seed to increase your heart health, bring down your cholesterol, and add more fiber to your diet. Flax is an especially beneficial food item for us vegetarians, because it helps us get our Omega-3’s. You may not have heard of this, but there is something out there that is similar to flax, but on steroids and supersized! It is called Salba®. According to...
Almost Vegan, Earth-Friendly Cookies for the Trail!

Almost Vegan, Earth-Friendly Cookies for the Trail...

I am going to tell you right now, I am even MORE jazzed about this latest version of my Trail Mix Cookies recipe! I’ve been working to make these cookies more organic and “earth friendly”, for those who are trying to include less animal byproducts in their diet. Have you ever heard the old phrase, “necessity is the mother of invention”? I have to admit, that is what partially drove the egg-free...
Not-just-for-Dieters Honey Mustard Dressing!

Not-just-for-Dieters Honey Mustard Dressing!...

People on their way to Thinlandia should really learn to LOVE salads. Salads can be SO good for you with lots of fiber, roughage, and tons of nutrition. This is why so many people choose to “eat healthy” and grab a salad when they go to a restaurant. But unfortunately, restaurant salads are not always “diet-friendly!” For example, let’s take a look at The Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad. Seems...
Peanut Butter Cookies for the Trail!

Peanut Butter Cookies for the Trail!...

I am now seriously on a cookie kick. Might I add a sweet baked desserts kick, as I also made some amazing chocolate brownies today? I’ve never eaten so well as since I’ve been blogging here at Thinlandia, trying out new recipes, and doing whatever I can to make yummy foods that will easily fit into a sensible diet plan! Yesterday’s Thinlandia Snack Mix inspired “Cookies For The Trail” completely...
Amazingly Rich Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies (did I mention Guilt-free?)

Amazingly Rich Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies (...

These treasures are also low sodium, low calorie, low fat, and gluten free! About this time you’re wondering WHAT on earth is in them? We’ll get to that in a minute! You might have deduced by now that I have a bit of a sweet tooth. A chocoholic sweet tooth is generally not compatible with a low calorie diet because as you know, most really yummy desserts have a correspondingly high calorie and fat gram count...
Cookies for the Trail!

Cookies for the Trail!...

I am going to tell you right now, I am pretty jazzed about this recipe! One thing you pretty much figure you have to give up when you are on your journey to Thinlandia, is cookies. Well, who knows, perhaps a meringue cookie or two (if you can make them without killing the egg whites, as I managed to do earlier), but you pretty much give up hoping you’ll be allowed any cookies you can really sink your teeth into....
Curried Banana-Mango Chutney

Curried Banana-Mango Chutney...

In Thinlandia, we’re always searching for new and creative ways to use fruit and vegetables in an exciting and healthful manner. This often involves putting ingredients together that might initially seem like an eclectic, even odd fit, but ends up actively stimulating your taste buds in an intriguing new way. This chutney is one of those “exotic taste adventures!” This very exciting recipe was modified...
Veggie Fajita Salad!

Veggie Fajita Salad!...

Sometimes when you are trying to lose weight, you have to give up a few things. For example, I had veggie fajitas the other night, and they were fabulous! The tortillas, however, yummy and low-cal as they were, were NOT a low-sodium food; they had 210 mg of sodium apiece. When you are restricting your sodium intake like I am, that much really makes a difference. And I gained weight the next day! (It was likely water...
Thinlandia’s Eclectic Blend Lower Fat, Lower Sodium Pasta Salad

Thinlandia’s Eclectic Blend Lower Fat, Lower...

Sometimes I really get a yen for “good old-fashioned pasta salad.” However, “good old-fashioned pasta salad” is generally quite fattening! Here is an new, exciting pasta salad with amazing amounts of taste, a lot more nutrition, and very little of the fat and sodium you’ll find in traditional pasta salads. Thinlandia’s Eclectic Blend Lowfat, Reduced-Sodium Pasta Salad Four ¾ cup...
