I’m continuing the celebrations of my 12th Blogiversary today with a post from the lovely Nancy Fox of Skinny Kitchen. I ‘met’ Nancy online fairly recently and she has become a great blogging friend and colleague. I find Nancy’s ability to take classic recipes and make them healthier and skinnier really inspiring. The best thing about Nancy’s recipes is that her ‘skinnified’ versions taste just as good – if not better – than the original! Today Nancy is sharing a restaurant makeover I know you are going to love. Over to Nancy!
I’m so excited to guest post for my wonderful blogging friend April. We both share a passion for food and for creating recipes to share with all of you! Today I’m sharing one of my restaurant makeovers. The Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi is so delicious, filled with potato gnocchi (potato dumplings) and is hearty enough for a soup meal. I can’t wait for you to try my skinny remake!!! It tastes so luxuriously rich and decadent. And, it has more chicken, veggies and gnocchi. Each bowl has 299 calories, 5 grams of fat and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.
Weight Watchers (old points) 6 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS 7

Thank you to Nancy for being my guest and sharing this skinny-licious recipe. Nancy is no stranger to the food industry. She founded Mrs. Beasley’s, a gift-basket company featuring baskets full of decadent baked goods. They became the “hot” gift to give among the Hollywood community. Nancy later opened 2 low fat restaurants called Nancy’s Healthy Kitchen. Her line of reduced-fat cookies were featured on “Oprah’s Favorites” gift show. Continuing her passion for cooking and baking Nancy created a recipe website called Skinny Kitchen. Each week she shares skinny recipes, cooking and kitchen tips, food finds and the healthy benefits of many recipes. There’s also nutritional facts and Weight Watchers POINTS on each recipe.
