(clean eating) almond joy bites

 almond joy bites | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s no lie that I’m a sucker for an Almond Joy candy bar (or chocolate & coconut) … any time of day. Breakfast? Dessert? Yes, YES!

However, eating candy bars everyday is not considered “in moderation” in my book. Once a week, perhaps. But in an attempt to eat a little cleaner, these will be my Almond Joy swap. Who needs a sugar-filled, coconutty candy bar? Not this girl.  If I ate one of these little nuggets with my eyes closed, I would think I was chomping on the real deal. Seriously … you’re only 4 ingredients away from satisfying that Almond Joy/candy bar craving.

Raw.
No bake.
Super easy.
Guilt free.

What are you waiting for? Yep, I’m going to eat one right now …

crab & avocado zoodles

crab & avocado zoodles | my skinny sweet tooth

If you haven’t been making noodles out of veggies by now, well then, you’re completely missing out. This recipe came about as most of mine do: cleaning out the fridge! That’s where creativity shines and recipes like this are born.

Crunchy zoodles, creamy avocado, and that crab flavor makes a great side dish or a main meal. Only 3 main ingredients. That’s it! I love when it works out that way 😉 This dish is so fresh and light that it’s perfect for these summer months.

Quick blog post for a quick and easy meal.

Two Ingredient Dough

two ingredient dough | my skinny sweet tooth

In the cooking world, two things intimidate me the most: grilling and yeast. I’ve never been taught how to work a grill, charcoal or propane. My mom had always taken the reigns and I’d have to say that she is the grilling queen. She could probably make a lasagna on the grill and it would turn out perfect. But that’s another story, another day. Yeast is what brings me here today.

I once came across this recipe on pinterest (surprise, surprise) about a dough that was made with only two ingredients; yeast not being one of them. YAY! I was saved once again 🙂

I’ve only made pizza/calzones with this dough (love it!) and was quite content with it being just pizza dough. But until recently, I’ve wanted to explore other aspects; sweet and savory … hence the “universal” title. So to start out, this recipe is for the dough alone. How you decide its fate is up to you. However, stay tuned for upcoming posts with this being the star player 😉
