skinnytaste...

Happy Sunday evening, Friends! I hope you have had a restful, peaceful, lovely weekend and that you feel refreshed and ready to start a new week.

For my last favourite Instagram account, I wanted to share with y'all:

@skinnytaste

Gina is the author of many "Skinnytaste" cookbooks! (I was just gifted one last Christmas.) I can't remember exactly how I started following her. Perhaps Facebook? But two things I ADORE about her:

1. Her recipes (most of them!) can very easily be made gluten-free! She's so super-duper-gluten-free-friendly. Her awareness and inclusivity bring joy to my heart.

2. She always lists Weight Watchers' Points for her recipes. I love that, given ELC's amazing dedication to her weight-loss journey through that awesome program.

Gina also has a blog (I'm thinking that's how she got started?), and thought I would share two of my FAVOURITE recipes:

The first is her "Gluten-Free Lightened Up Banana Nut Bread." I typically use "Cup4Cup" flour, and I also use Go-Go Squeeze Cinnamon-Applesauce! Y'all. Ohmygosh. It makes two loaves of bread, which is perfect for our family because Little Leighton does NOT wants nuts in her bread but my Hubby wants extra walnuts in his! It. Is. So. Stinking. GOOD. Try this. Freeze a loaf. It would be perfect for a healthy and quick breakfast before school.

Skinny Cranberry Bliss Bars. These bars. There truly are no words for how yummy they are. They have become one of my new traditions during the holidays. This is her version of the Starbucks' Cranberry Bliss Bars. But, news flash: Gina's are BETTER. And better for you, too! I sub Cup4Cup flour and just make sure all of my other ingredients are gluten-free. They are DELICIOUS. You must-must-must try these this year!

I pray you all have a blessed week, and, as our Worship Leader at church says every Sunday, be a blessing to others.

TTFN!
