We have a soft spot for hard working entrepreneurs, like Liz, of Super Sister Fitness. Not only is she a Marketing Impact Academy Alum, but she’s an amazing #GirlBoss with a thriving fitness company. We asked her if we could feature some of her delicious low calorie healthy recipes with our 131 audience. We love providing you variety, and while we offer hundreds of recipes inside our program for each phase of the 131 Method, it’s always nice to get to experience other chefs and nutritionists’ creations. Liz’s recipe are easy, low cost, and in this case, low calorie. But check her beautifully pastel website and IG page for a wide array of dishes across many different categories. From high protein, to cute little single-gal snacks, she’s got variety for days!
Low Calorie Healthy Pizza
With under 200 calories, this pizza is a must for your healthy living fitness goals. And you can enjoy it 100% guilt-free since you’re sneaking in extra veggies! We’re about to blow your mind with the macros too. You get to enjoy this entire personal pizza for under 200 calories. Yep! Pick your jaw up off the floor people- it’s true! With over 9 grams of fiber, it keeps you full for hours. And- the flavors are just like the pizza you ate growing up (without all the gluten and oil oozing everywhere). Feel free to top it with vegan cheese, if you prefer.
Why is this recipe better?
- Because it uses 100% real food ingredients
- That’s right, no artificial flavors or ingredients. No gluten. Little to no carbs
- And almost no calories at all… It’s the answer to your pizza craving dreams. And it won’t bloat you like regular pizza does because these ingredients are not inflammatory like typical pizza
Grain-Free Protein Pancakes
Who doesn’t love a good short stack? But if you’re avoiding gluten, the pickings get quite slim. And if you’re avoiding nuts (like, no almond flour base for you), then the options are even fewer. We love this recipe because the bulk of the batter is made up coconut flour (which makes super soft and cake-y baked goods), along with your favorite protein powder. Feel free to use a vegan powder, collagen peptides, or whatever works best for YOUR body. Just adjust the liquid to account for the absorption of your particular powder. This low calorie healthy recipe serves 2 people and clocks in at only 300 calories! Top with Lakanto syrup, some homemade rhubarb jam, or a drizzle of cookie dough nut butter.
Chocolate Brownie Cake Bites
We just love what Liz says about treats! It’s very aligned with how we think at the 131 Method. “Restriction mentalities just aren’t sustainable! You hear this constantly, but this is a long term lifestyle, and it’s just not realistic to never ever eat a treat again. So strap in, buckle up and double down because it’s high time you learned how to make your treats healthier without sacrificing the ingredient quality or taste bud-wow-factor ever again.”
These ultra-rich brownies squash cravings. Since they’re pre-portioned into small squares, you’ll be reminded of what one portion looks like. Start with one. Savor it. Really ask yourself if you need another. Chances are, one is all you’ll need. They’re THAT satisfying! This low calorie healthy recipe deserves a pin on your Pinterest board!
Mayo-Less Egg Salad
For all you mayo-haters out there, this recipe saves the day! We love it because mayo (while delicious) contains a lot of calories. We don’t “watch calories” around here. That way of thinking is so 1995. However, if you are looking for a less heavy alternative with even more flavor, give this version a try. We have made a 131 version using avocado instead of mayo, but never a recipe using hummus. Absolute genius! This snack/lunch only contains about 150 calories and lots of protein. For our 131’ers, it works for Lean Green or Carb Charge days, depending on what you serve with it.
Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip
This slimmed down version of the ever-popular spinach dip on menus and at home parties tastes as good as the original. Promise! The great news here is that you can make several swaps to customize it to suit your preferences. Can’t do dairy? No problem- choose a vegan cream cheese like Kite Hill. Want more protein? Use Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. Want to skip that part? Use homemade cashew cream instead. Opt for vegan cheese or nutritional yeast in place of Parmesan. The point is, you’re getting tons of fiber and antioxidants from the veggies in this dip. All the rich and creamy stuff is up to you. And, it still clocks in under 100 calories per serving.
Medjool Date Smoothie (No Bananas!)
Let’s start by saying, dates aren’t really known for being a low calorie food. However, when used as the only “fruit” in this recipe, and only source of sweetness, the result is a smoothie that clocks in around 310 calories. And this ain’t just any smoothie. It’ll fill you up for awhile, so consider it a full meal. Many juice and shake shops use sherbet, juice and fruit to make their tropical creations. Many clock in at over 600 calories! And most of these calories come from carbs (sugar). This recipe contains healthy fat and protein for a more balanced shake.
