Nutella is one of those spreads that you can have a spoonful of and not feel bad about…until a few minutes later when the jar is empty, and your blood pressure is off the charts. Normally filled with sugar, we found a healthy alternative to this hungry obsession. Use this perfect midday snack for dipping apples and celery in or even as a spread on some whole wheat toast.

Sure, you could just eat cold pizza from the night before, but if you want to experience the true joy of pizza for breakfast, try this recipe. The pizza is topped with tater tots (you can choose fried or baked, but go with fried today, obviously)—plus two kinds of bacon. Oh, and there are eggs on top too. And cheese. Breakfast of champions? Yes indeed.  
Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here! They are no-bake! Great for the warmth of spring or summer, and also for energy conservation, you can avoid cranking up the oven to 350 when making a raw dessert. Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!
We all love the original chocolate chip cookie, but some are made with too much sugar and not enough nutrients. We have found a way to fix that! These chocolate chip cookies use flax seed that are high in omega-3s and have tons of fiber. There is also peanut butter added to this cookie because, well, everything is better with peanut butter. It not only makes the cookie taste amazing but also adds a source of protein and some healthy fat.

These crunchy cookie bars are packed with dried cranberries and creamy chunks of sweet white chocolate. Coat them in a citrusy orange yogurt glaze and sprinkle with chopped cranberries for added texture and sweetness.

The key to this is high-intensity workouts. This variation of the Keto Diet s not intended for the majority of gym-goers. If you are a runner, play on an intramural sports league, or attend cardio classes, stick with the SKD. You can still get the boost that you need with a fat bomb before or after your workout. If you are a bodybuilder, or a professional athlete, then the TKD might be for you.
These simple-to-prepare recipes for the kind of delectable dishes people crave but feel they can’t eat when trying to be healthy and trim, actually can be the basis of a personal weight-loss plan. They can also be a way to add “off-limit” foods back into an already successful diet. Or they can simply be part of an exciting new way to eat healthfully — and with pleasure.
