Fit for a Family

 

This weekend I’m headed to South Carolina for a day of partyin’ with family! Remember the last time we were all together?! Recap here! 

We have two birthdays, baby Liam and Papa Marlow, to celebrate on Saturday, and I couldn’t be more excited to see everyone! My seven-year old niece who is a newly diagnosed gluten hater will be there, and I can’t wait to shower her with THE BEST gluten free foods!

PLUS my bestie and I are going to make GF cake pops for everyone. Post coming Monday!

So with all the family fun, I started thinking about my favorite dish that is always a hit at any party!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

You’ll need:

10-12 small red potatoes

1/2 cup 0% fat plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup diced spring onion

3 garlic cloves, diced

Scrub the skins of the potatoes and dry. With a paring knife, slice a small circle off each potato. Toss the potatoes with olive oil and the diced garlic.

Spread into a shallow baking pan and cook for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Once cooled, cut the potatoes into quarters and mix with the yogurt, cheese, and onions. Enjoy!

Crisp, crumbled bacon would be a great addition, but I’m not keeping it in the house these days. I figure if I don’t keep my vices at arm’s reach, I’ll hopefully be able to avoid eating them daily! :)
