crab & pea shoot salad

crab & pea shoot salad | my skinny sweet tooth

Summer is among us and that means various things. Two of which I’m most excited for: picnics and lighter meals. This crab salad is both. Mayo-free and has only 4 ingredients (no sweating away in the kitchen!) You could also make a lot or just a single serving with ease. I’ve had this salad different ways; on it’s own, as a “lobster” roll, atop sliced cucumber or baguette, stuffed in a tomato or avocado. So many ways to enjoy this. 🙂 Plus, at only 3pp per serving, you can definitely have wiggle room with your additions.

One healthier swap to this recipe is greek cream cheese (cream cheese made with greek yogurt -yay protein!). It also adds a richness and depth that makes one forget mayo even exists. Bonus! I also love the addition of pea shoots; slightly crunchy and has a great subtle pea flavor, almost celery-like. If you can’t find pea shoots, by all means, feel free to substitute diced celery. It’s just as good and has that classic crab salad flavor/texture. 🙂

I’m a sucker for all of those delicious dessert pins on pinterest and food gawker. Ugh, what’s a weight watching girl to do? Well, I’ll tell you what I’m not going to do … I’m not going to sit and pout and wish I had those darn quadruple chocolate cookies or 16 layer cake or deep fried cookie dough egg rolls. Being a weight watcher means being creative (or having someone be creative for you 😉 ). & speaking of the cookie dough egg rolls, though they looked divine, I started thinking of a better way to make this. I also went with the s’more route, because who doesn’t love a good ‘ol s’more? And lastly, it’s only 4pp each (with the chocolate drizzle, too!)

blueberry-cream cheese stuffed french toast

blueberry-cream cheese stuffed french toast | my skinny sweet tooth

 

Happy Saturday! The sun is so beautiful already this morning 🙂 I wanted to whip up a breakfast that was as equally awesome as the weather today. French toast does that, right? Well, in my book it does! I also had some blueberries in the fridge that needed desperate attention.

And so the two were united in holy breakfast matrimony  … Continue reading “blueberry-cream cheese stuffed french toast”
