Just because you’re trying to eat healthier doesn’t mean you have to force yourself to eat salads every night - ugh, how boring! These recipes have plenty of flavor, the only thing missing is the calories! All of these recipes are baked so there’s much less added fat in these recipes than their fried counterparts. Enough with the chit chat, dig in!
