Gluten-Free Fourth of July Feast

by in Healthy Recipes, July 1, 2016

Kick off this Fourth of July weekend with a feast of lightened-up, gluten-free versions of American classics. We’ve swapped in a creamy cashew ranch dressing for heavy mayo in our veggie-packed macaroni salad. Want super-crispy fried chicken? Go ahead and let your oven do all the work for you instead of frying it in oil. Bonus: you’ll be rewarded with less cleanup, too!

Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken
Serves 6

Ingredients:
Canola oil, for greasing
2 cups unsweetened corn flakes
6 tablespoons raw almonds
6 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
1 cup gluten-free flour, for dredging
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken tenders

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet with oil. Using a food processor, pulse together the corn flakes, almonds, sesame seeds, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, dried thyme, pepper, cumin and salt until coarsely chopped; transfer to a shallow bowl.

In a second shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Place the flour in a third shallow bowl. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess, then in the egg mixture and the corn flake mixture; place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chicken. Bake until golden and cooked through, about 20 minutes.

5 Healthy Cobblers, Bettys and More

by in Healthy Recipes, May 29, 2015

If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for in the summertime, it’s a piping-hot fruit dessert cloaked in buttery, sugary dough or a crackly crumble. While downing freshly picked peaches or bushels of berries is a veritable seasonal rite, those fruits are rendered even sweeter when warmed in a casserole dish or cast-iron pan, their juices melding irresistibly with the caramelized sugar of the topping. But there are two things that don’t mix well in the summertime: sugar and bathing suits.

In reality, the natural sugars in fruits lend baked and grilled treats plenty of sweetness, so you can get away with less sugar, less butter, and better-for-you flours and oats without sacrificing the flavor of these oh-so-craveable desserts. So enjoy your summer fruit treats — and pool time — with these five better-for-you recipes.
