Breakfast Sushi

breakfast sushi | my skinny sweet tooth

Sushi isn’t just for lunch or dinner. Granted, you won’t find any fish or wasabi here. I’m talking about replacing all those savory elements with fruit and all good things to start your day off right. I’m also getting rid of the rice and replacing that with a low carb, high fiber tortilla. Basically, this is a no-fuss breakfast option to help pull you out of the typical cereal and bran muffin rut. Have your kiddos customize their own “roll”. They’ll have fun with it, too! Who wouldn’t love eating with chopsticks for breakfast?

Listed below are just two of my sushi creations, but the possibilities are endless. As I have more combinations, I’ll update this post 🙂 But go for it! Use what you have on hand and get creative!

6pp, dessert, recipes for one

skinny apple pie (for one!)

skinny apple pie | my skinny sweet tooth

Apple pie is my husbands favorite dessert. So with his birthday on Monday, I offered to make him his own apple pie.

“No diet tricks, I swear! I’ll use real butter and everything!”

Consequently, I was just suckered into making a high calorie/point dessert that I knew I couldn’t have. But gosh darn it, I want pie, too. I want to sit with him and have dessert on his birthday. Call me selfish or sneaky, but I was going to have apple pie. Heck, I may just make an entire pie just for me 🙂 So that I did. 🙂

This dessert gives you the perfect reason to be selfish. No sharing needed (or recommended), meaning the whole pie is for you. Yes, JUST FOR YOU! Don’t we deserve that every now and then? Something all to ourselves? Well, whether you enjoy this in front of your kids/husband or in the closet with the door locked, just remember this moment is all yours. But, to save yourself from any guilt-ridden feelings if your in company of others, your best bet is to make more than one. Or in my case, a fat-filled one to detour them my husband from mine. Hehe.

No worries though! This recipe is super simple, comes together quickly and has less than 5 ingredients (Pie dough not being one of them. We’re using tortillas! Trust me, it’s ok!). 😉

Oh, and did I mention that this apple pie has no fat. No? Well, this pie has 0g of fat! Awesome. Let’s see a comparison, shall we?

Marie Callenders Apple Pie: 680 calories, 32g fat. 19pp
my skinny apple pie: 297 calories, 0g fat. 6pp

That right there is the perfect reason to eat a guilt-free “homemade” pie. THE whole PIE! 🙂

Enough with my selfish rant. 😉 I’d like to send a huge “Happy Birthday” to my love. I can’t wait to enjoy his birthday dessert with him. He’s definitely the “apple of my eye”. 😉 HA!
