3 Lighter BuzzFeed Tasty Recipes
If you love BuzzFeed Tasty videos as much as I do, then you’ll enjoy these attempts to re-make those decadent recipes in a much more calorie-conscious way (while keeping the recipes pretty simple). Keep in mind these are still fairly high calories but contain significantly less fat and simple carbs than the original recipes. Enjoy!
My version of jalapeño popper burger swaps the cream cheese with goat cheese, and I was also using Greek yogurt, and reduced fat mozzarella cheese for some creaminess. I also used very lean beef.
Macros for my burger are 422 calories, 45 grams of protein, 27 grams of carbs and 15 grams of fats. So we cut both the calories and fat grams in half.
Banana upside down cakes are insanely good. But each slice has 691 calories, 5 grams of protein, 93 grams of carbs and 36 grams of fat. In my version, I made some substitutions. Instead of using white flour, I used some oatmeal, less banana, and of course I swapped refined sugar for coconut sugar.
One of the biggest changes in my version is portion control, by making this cake inside of the 8 muffin tins. That way you know exactly what you are eating. Each serving has about 377 calories, 5 gram of protein, 44 grams of carbs, and 21 grams of fats.
Write your comments below, as well as your ideas on how to make some of the tastiest recipes, such as chicken wings, garlic bread, cinnamon rolls or any other recipe, more calorie-conscious.
