Joining the video-recipe game!

For the past couple of months, I have noticed Facebook friends sharing fast-forwarded Tasty & Tip-Hero recipe videos of the most decedent appetizers and desserts. Originally, I assumed that the videos were solely dedicated to unhealthy recipes – calling for ingredients such as an entire stick of cream cheese or a crunched up bag of Cheetos (agh!). However, yesterday I was proved wrong. My friend shared a delicious-looking (not to mention stupid-easy-to-make) video for Honey Dijon Chicken, which then had me searching for other healthy-ish recipes to replicate!

For visual learners like myself, the quick recipe videos are SO much fun to watch. I browsed the Tasty & Tip-Hero pages and collected several “healthier” videos that I plan on making in the near future! Wanting to take it one step further, I added notes below each video on simple ingredient swaps that will make each recipe clean-eating friendly. Take a look below!

Slow It Down Girl solution to Taco-Stuffed Peppers: Eliminate the cheese (or just sprinkle a small amount in the recipe!) Instead of adding a dollop of sour cream on top, use plain Greek yogurt instead (I promise you…it will taste the same and provide extra protein.)


Slow It Down Girl solution to Honey Dijon Chicken: Nada! Its perfect.


Slow It Down Girl solution to Chicken Fajita Soup: Reduce cheese by half (or cut out entirely!) Replace the 1/2 cup cream with 1/2 cup of full-fat plain greek yogurt (be sure to turn heat down because yogurt doesn’t hold up to heat in the same way as cream.) OR you can also substitute the cream with coconut milk (which is naturally sweet)!


Slow It Down Girl solution to One-Pot Chicken Alfredo: Replace pasta with whole wheat penne or soba noodles (Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and contain only 113 calories per cup.) Use low sodium chicken broth, and swap out heavy cream with 2% milk. Sprinkle in some parmesan and you have a lightened up version of One-Pot Chicken Alfredo!


Slow It Down Girl solution to Spicy White Bean Chili: This recipe is pretty much perfect! Remember to use low sodium vegetable broth and you are good to go!


Slow It Down Girl solution to Easy Baked Potato Chips: Eliminate the butter! You definitely don’t need it – this recipe is delicious with olive oil, pepper and pink himalayan salt! Feel free to use a sweet potato to up the nutrition level.


Its so great to have both Tasty and Tip-Hero as new recipe resources! Looking forward to discovering more videos as they continue to post on social media.
