A Cheat Sheet for Reducing Sugar

Hey All! Welcome back! As promised, it's recipe week! I've been figuring things as out I go and doing a ton of Pinterest searching to learn new recipes that help eliminate sugar. Lucky for you, this post will list some of my fav's all in one place! Let's stick to some basics- breakfast, snack, and dinner. (If you didn't read my previous posts, check out Fed Up and Swap and Go first.)

Breakfast Recipes:

Egg and Veggie Casserole

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

10 eggs
1 Cup broccoli, zucchini, or a favorite veggie (or mix a couple!)
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
2 C milk
1 C ground and cooked sausage
S/P to taste

Mix eggs in a bowl with fork. Add the rest of ingredients. Pour all into a greased 9x13 dish. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Once cooled, can last for several days in the fridge.

Baked Oatmeal

Check out http://cookieandkate.com/ for lots of great, healthy recipes! This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes by Kate:


Zucchini Scrambled Eggs

Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and mix with a fork.
Add 1/4 Cup of diced zucchini to a hot, greased, frying pan.
Add S/P to taste.
When zucchini is soft, add eggs and scramble in the pan.
Sprinkle a bit of cheese on top.

***I like to dice up a whole zucchini at the beginning of the week & store in the fridge so I can just toss them into my eggs easy peesy in the morning.

Snack Recipes:

Ab's Favorite Smoothie (found several versions on Pinterest, tweaked to my own liking.)

In a blender, combine:

1 Cup UNsweet almond milk
1 1/2 FROZEN bananas
2 TBS Peanut butter
1/4 C oats

Chuck & Ab's Favorite Popcorn

2 TBS coconut oil
1/4 C + a little more popcorn seeds
Salt to taste

Heat coconut oil on medium in a large pot on the stove. Sprinkle salt into the oil. Add popcorn seeds and immediately put the lid on the pot. Wait for the seeds to pop! Make sure you take the pot off once the seeds stop popping.

Dinner Recipes:

EASY Baked Potato Bar 

Rinse and scrub however many potatoes you'd like.  While still wet, place them in a crock pot on low for about 6 hours. Stab potatoes with a fork & check for softness a couple hours before dinner time- you made need to switch to high heat.


Cooked Broccoli
Canned Turkey chili

AMAZING Crock Pot Roast Beef 


Taco Salad

1 lb. ground beef, cooked + add taco seasoning and simmer with water until water is cooked down
Diced tomatoes
Chopped lettuce
Black beans, cooked
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sliced Avocado

Mix all ingredients and enjoy!
