Easy Almond Crackers

Easy homemade crackers made with almond meal (also called almond flour) or a mix of almond meal and pecan meal or almond meal and flax meal plus pantry ingredients – that's right, naturally gluten-free and no hard-to-find ingredients to invest in. Using nut flours instead of wheat flours means the crackers are low-carb but contain protein too. Real Food, Fresh & Flexible. Great for Lightweight, Healthy Travel Snacks. Weight Watchers Friendly. Low Carb. Naturally Gluten Free. Whole30. Not just vegan, Vegan Done Real .

Cast Iron Meatloaf

Meatloaf cooked in a cast iron skillet, tender, moist and full of flavor thanks to milk-soaked bread crumbs and a pile of chopped vegetables that texture-wise, "melt" into the meatloaf. This is my go-to recipe for meatloaf, the one I make again and again. Great for meatloaf sandwiches? You bet! But here's a question. Would you (do you?) serve meatloaf for company? Homestyle Meatloaf Made from Scratch. "Plain" But Perfect, Moist & Tender. A Long-Time Family Favorite. Hearty & Filling. Great for Meal Prep. Potluck & Party Friendly. So Good!!

Orange Julius Drinks

Four ways to make Orange Julius Drinks with just two ingredients, fresh oranges and extra protein. (Two are recommended, two are definitely not – I include them because some times knowing what "doesn't" work is just as useful as what "does work".) By all rights, these are Orange Julius "style" Drinks because they are made without frozen orange juice concentrate and without added or refined sugar, usual ingredients in copycat orange julius recipes. Fresh & Seasonal, Perfect for Winter Citrus. Just Two Ingredients! Weekday Easy, Weekend Special. Weight Watchers Friendly. Naturally Gluten Free.

DIY Power Balls

Why pay $1 or $2 a bar when it's so quick and easy to whip up your very own energy balls aka DIY Power Balls? Just 7 ingredients, 15 minutes and spiked with espresso powder for a caffeine kick. I've been making them in 100-calorie and 50-calorie energy balls. And yes, DIY Power Balls look ... and taste ... like truffles. But y'know what? A spoon works just as well. It's the ultimate healthy snack. Real Food, Portable & Convenient. Low Carb. Naturally Gluten Free. Not just vegan, Vegan Done Real . Great for Meal Prep & Travel Snacks.
