Seared Scallops with Spinach & Cannellini Beans (Healthy & Diabetic-Friendly Recipe #1)

Want a dinner recipe that’s packed with fiber, is low calorie (only ~280 cals) and makes you feel like a king/queen? Try out this Women’s Magazine recipe on for size! Pic above is my rendition and it came out pretty yummy!

My thoughts/modifications/tips:

1. Don’t use butter. “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” works just as well & olive oil is even better. There is also an ICBINB-olive oil variety if you want that buttery texture without the cals and saturated fat.

2. If you’re really trying to eat lean, but still want the bacon for flavor, you can: (1) cut the recipe to one strip of bacon instead of 2 or (2) substitute the pork bacon for turkey bacon. I think the pork bacon adds a necessary saltiness to the recipe (and I love bacon!) so I would suggest #1 over #2.

3. Go heavy on the spinach. It adds a great texture with the beans. Plus, hello iron! 🙂

Happy clean eating!
