Welcome to Week 2 of Instant Skinny Swaps! I’m thrilled to be partnering with Kroger and a few of my favorite bloggers this month on their new “1 Little Victory” campaign. As you may know a few years ago I lost 30 pounds. You can read the full story here. Basically, I knew I couldn’t make a huge drastic change if I wanted to be able to last more than a day. I made small, doable changes that I could easily incorporate into my daily life. I cut down on calories and made healthier versions of my favorite recipes.
This month I’ll be showing you how I took my favorite recipes and made one small ingredient swap for a better-for-you version. And you can totally do this too with your favorite recipes. One small change is one little victory towards healthy eating.
This is the second of three posts this month where I’ll be sharing easy dinner ideas for the week and Instant Skinny Swaps to make them healthier. Check out Week 1 here. You can find all these products at your local Kroger affiliate store.
Reduced Calorie Pasta
Did you know Kroger has reduced calorie pasta??! This is such an easy swap for a pasta lover like me! You can use this reduced calorie pasta in one of my all-time favorite pasta recipes:
Kroger Frozen Veggies
Always having frozen veggies on hand makes it so much easier to toss them into dinner. I especially love always having Kroger’s frozen diced onions in the freezer. They are such a massive time saver! I usually always have these frozen veggies in my freezer: diced onions, diced carrots, corn, peas, green beans, edamame, broccoli, cauliflower, and another one of my favorites is Kroger’s Diced Onion and Bell Pepper blend. Saute that with some chicken, beef, or shrimp and you have the perfect starter for any meal: fajitas, tacos, pasta, rice, whatever! Here are two of my favorite recipes to use frozen veggies:
Cheesy Chicken Bacon Broccoli and Rice
Kroger Whole Wheat Tortillas
Incorporating more whole grains into your diet is always a good idea. It’s super easy to do by swapping regular tortillas for whole wheat tortillas. Pick some up and give it a try in your favorite tortilla recipe, or try one of mine below:
Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas
Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Style Burritos
To celebrate Little Victories, Kroger is giving away 3 HUGE prizes to help you stay on track in the new year.

Today’s victory was breaking through a long-standing weight plateau …
I’ve been switching my regular pasta to whole wheat pasta. So far so good and my kids can’t tell much of a difference!
This sounds amazing! I’m still trying to lose the weight from my first baby. I can’t wait to read your tips!
I’ve started using all whole wheat and reduced calorie pasta and love it! I’m a huge fan of pasta and was worried I’d notice the difference, so glad I don’t.
Love new ways to use wraps!
My little victory was checking off three things off my to-do list with time to spare and feeling like maybe I can check off another three things before it’s time for bed!
Wow great substitutions that are easy!
Yummy food and yummy gadgets!
I gave up soda for the month. I had cut back to two liters of real soda and two of diet (one every other week), and now none at all. Funny, I only miss it occasionally. Whoops, I should stop writing about it or I’ll miss soda right now!!!

Yay for frozen veggies and microwavable steam bag frozen veggies…… makes my day easier and healthier.
Logging my food again!
Great recipes!! In it to win it!!!
My little victory of the day is finding this link to some great reciepes :)
I made a huge pot of black-eyed pea soup for the second time this year. The first time was New Years Day, but so many people stopped by for soup and cornbread, there were no leftovers (everyone wanted this delicious soup so they would have good luck throughout the year).
How fabulous!! Just like my little victory today, which was a carb-free Chicken and sausage gumbo :) Delightfully satisfying.
I use spaghetti squash all the time instead of pasta. I just love it. I also use yogurt a lot as a substitute.
My little victory for today is after a lot of hard work from both my special needs daughter and I, she started to pinch grasp her food. Simply amazing.
One of my favorite swaps when I need to add a bit of richness, creaminess or body to a sauce or soup is to use unsweetened, plain Greek yogurt.
Thank you! My doctor told me just a couple of days ago to bring down my triglicerides or she’ll put me on meds. You have some wonderful swaps that I will definitely put to good use!
This is a great giveaway and awesome ideas on how to reduce calories in these yummy meals!
I would love to win!

Reducing meat and adding veggies to casseroles.

I love Kroger. There’s a lot of stores to choose from in my area but I always find myself going back there.
Wow! It would be so great to win this giveaway! I used to hose “family night” at my house every week & invite my extended family (about 20 people) but it just got too expensive – so now I try to invite everyone over atleast once a month. It would be nice to have a BIG family event with that $$ grocery $$$!!
Our family is working hard to eat better this year. Right now we are doing a no sugar for a month challenge, and surprisingly it has been easier than I thought for all of us!
I have increased my water intake.
Looks yummy! Definitely going to have to try that shrimp pasta soon.
My little victory was getting everyone out the door this morning!
That crispy shrimp pasta looks delicious! I’m going to make that soon! (with the reduced calorie pasta :) )
Frozen veggies, frozen shrimp and frozen chicken breast are always available in my freezer! Can’t wait to try all of these! Thanks :)
I log everything I eat, exercise at least 4 hours a week and walk at least 8000 steps ago and keep track with my Vivofit.
Putting all our snacks in single serve portions. Easy for on the go and to not over do it at snack time. Why pay for 100 calorie snack packs that are full of preservatives when fruits and veggies are so much tastier.
I love having frozen veggies on hand! It’s such a time saver and helps me actually get them on our plates!
Cooking dinner every night is my little daily victory!
I love buying Kroger brand products!
I joined a biggest loser group two weeks ago. I too know that the only way I will lose weight is by making small changes. I am excited to try some of your recipes. So far I have lost 5 pounds! ðŸ˜„
Just came across your blog recently and am looking forward to catching up on all your posts!
My little victory today was getting up on time. With busy family schedules the mornings are rough.
Those recipes look great. Really working to cook more whole foods, less processed foods. Staying out of the “interior” Kroger aisles except for things like pasta, beans and rice.
I ate a healthy breakfast today instead of a doughnut!!
Cleaning my house! Big victory! :)
can’t wait to try the enchiladas!
I can’t wait to try all your tips! I’ve always loved frozen vegetables!
i’ve lost 20+ lbs in the last 6 months by just reducing the amount of fat i eat!
Yummmm! I’d love to try reduced calorie pasta!
Wow it is so great to be able to eat a yummy meal and not feel guilty.
Great post, looks delicious!
Step 1 for me was a FitBit. I can see my exercise efforts and calorie intake any time of the day or night.
Step 2 start making dietary changes, one meal at a time !
Love the recipes yum
So neat! You always have amazing giveaways! Love your blog!!
I try to always keep applesauce on hand, so I can swap out the oil in baked goods. It makes me feel a little better about eating it!

I made it to work early today!
I just got over the flu and am back at work! :)
My victory for today, finding this great giveaway! Great looking recipes!
My favorite healthy recipe swap is Greek yogurt instead of Sour Cream. :-)
The shrimp looks delicious. We wish Kroger would bring back “Smartaste Angel Hair ” pasta by Barilla, it is high fiber but does not taste heavy like most high fiber pastas.
Glad I found your site. Trying to make changes in my diet and this is great info and a great giveaway. Thanks.
I would love to win. I need more healthy recipes
WOW! Such a generous giveaway & I LOVE these pasta recipes :)
What a great giveaway!
Roasting veggies always makes them more delicious!
I love how easy it would be to just swap out low calorie pasta!!! I am a “pastaholic”!!!!
Your ingredient swap ideas are great! Thanks!
Finally tackled cleaning out the coat closet! Whew! Victorious!
Definitely ground turkey and chicken. With right flavors can still make a great burger. Pasta alternatives are good too. Will have to look for Greek yogurt cream cheese. That’s a great one and I had not seen it before. Thanks!
Bend on atkins for a month now and the giveaway would really help us. Thanks for doing this.
Getting all my housework done early!
Starting prepping food for our dinner while going on very little sleep. That feels like a bit of a victory!
I try and use whole wheat whenever I can…….bread, pasta, tortillas.
Drinking more water and eating fresh foods.wonderful recipes here!
Got new walking shoes:)
That ham and cheese gnocchi looks delicious- I’m going to make that tonight!
I couldn’t agree more! Frozen veggies are a LIFESAVER for the nights when you don’t have time to put together a salad!
Such great ideas and hoping for the same kind of success.
Love, love, love the little victories, skinny swaps and Kroger! Super do-able ideas! Thank you!!
All veggies tonight…and tomorrow, Global Dinner…a combination of beans and rice.
What an awesome giveaway! I could totally use new cookware :)
I went to the gym this morning!
Love Krogers, love your recipes, and love your ideas!
I love this!
Congrats on your weight loss Amanda! I too will be losing weight this year, having put it off for far too long. I have started substituting fat-free half and half for whipping cream in recipes and to use in my morning coffee. I plan to cut way down on sugar as well and will use honey and maple syrup for some of the substitutions. Plus, green tea! Thanks for the super giveaway. Love your travel stories and pictures – fantastic laptop traveling for me :-)
my little victory was getting to the gym. usually this is a given but i had a bit of a headache. i knew that the extra water i drink at the gym and getting out of the house would be key ingredients to headache removal.
My greatest victory is when I have dinner made or mostly made before my kids come home from school. It means I get to focus on them and their day instead of worrying about how to feed 4 growing boys.
I love the Dreamfields Pasta.
Awesome giveaway! Thanks for get tips and recipes!!
I love using a can of pumpkin for box brownie mix instead of oil and eggs. Tastes the same!
Amazing Thank you for the opportunity!
I appreciate you talking about small victories and small changes. I’ve tried for a long time to quit sugar. I finally decided to do it a little slowly and it’s working. I’m excited to try a few of these recipes! Thanks!
Frozen diced onions-what a great idea! I’ll be picking some up on my next trip to Kroger
The recipes look delish! Such an awesome giveaway……hope I’m one of the winners!
My victory today is that I had a lunch full of vegetables!
I’ve been very sick lately so the little victory is that I accomplished some small tasks today.
I drank water instead of the soda I was craving!
Drink more water!!!
My baby went to sleep without much fuss. It’s the little things. :)
These sound delicious. I will have to try them. New year. New me!
This giveaway is amazing! I have totally taken your advice this year and started keeping frozen veggies around. The tears I’ve wasted on chopping onions in years past – who knew?! :-)
I caught up on some TV :)

That Crispy Shrimp pasta has me drooling like a hungry St. Bernard!
Thanks so much for the info! As a working mom, weeknights with family are so short! I have been on a mission lately to a make meals that are easy, healthy and that make enough for a couple nights. This will give us more play time with our sweet girl! These tips will definitely help when doing my grocery shopping (at Kroger of course!)
Whole wheat tortillas and Kroger has reduced calorie pasta I cant wait to try them. I had never seen them before. Great idea. Thank you
I love all of the amazing ideas!
I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
How I love pasta so one thing I’ve tried and enjoy is swapping it out for zucchini (shredded to look like pasta).
during the winter we love our freezer veggies. i buy the “steamer” bags to make cooking them even easier!
First interview of the year! :)
Oh what a wonderful giveaway! I strive every day to take small steps to help myself eat better and feel better. Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway.

My little victory for today was a quick and easy chicken fajita dinner so I could have a little time for myself this evening!
My victory today was roasted veggies tossed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar with grilled chicken for dinner.
My little victory was not pressing snooze this morning!! :)

My little victory for today was getting through my art class today(: lol.
I’ve been starting to log what I eat
After an indulgent weekend I’m back to steel-cut oats for breakfast. So good and so filling!
Thanks! I’m not sure if we have an affiliate store near mean missouri. But my mom shops at Kroger in Tennessee.
I love Kroger grocery stores!
Victory: eating a healthy lunch!
My victory today was drinking more water and less coffee. I always use Kroger frozen veggies. We love them…so much healthier than canned veggies…we don’t need all that sodium. Will be looking for the lower calorie pasta. Thanks for chance to win.
I’ve switched from sour cream to Greek plain yogurt! Tastes great.
Thanks so much for the great hints and advice to keep us on track!
I found myself thinking that I could do these things by just thinking about one meal at a time. I am anxious to try the reduced calorie pasta.
Wow! Great giveaway! Thanks!
would love a giftcard! and the cookware would b nice too! :)
New cookware? I need new cookware!
My little victory today was (while running errands) parking farther from the store even though it was raining! Got a few extra steps in this way…
Thanks Amanda! You’re recipes are Delish!!!
I passed up cupcakes and a king cake in the teachers’ lounge! & I passed on the DP and settled for un-sweet tea. :)
Thanks for the tips!
Great tips. I didn’t know Kroger had low calorie pasta. I will have 2 look 4 it next time. Your recipes look so yummy. I will have 2 try 1 soon. I lost 58 lbs 10 years ago but have gained most of it back & need to kick it in gear 2 get it off again. Any tips u can provide will b embraced. Hugs.
love this giveaway. I shop at Kroger all the time and will look for the pasta!!! Can’t wait to try it.
I’m leaving a comment
my victory was waking up at 5 am and getting all my work done!!!
Been cutting sugar out of lots of things – I’ve graduated to drinking my coffee black! Definitely need more recipes so we don’t eat out as much.
Love the pasta recipes. Need to try
I resisted the carrot cake at work!
I drank tea without any added sugar!
I used your weight loss plan last year and lost 10 pounds. I’ve gained half of it back since Halloween and need to get back on your plan but have been without a freezer since November, which has been part of the problem. Too much eating out. Hoping new one will be delivered by end of the week!
Love frozen veggies, so easy and you dont have to worry about them going bad before you use them. Thanks for the chance to win.
Frozen vegetables are seriously life savers!
My small victory is getting the kids dressed and in the car for school even though it was raining!
I’m about to get supper going in the crockpot so it’ll be ready when we get hungry this evening.
What to make for dinner is the big question of the day… Everyday! Trying to eat lighter is so important but so much tougher to change comfortable old habits. Thank you for the inspiration to that nagging question “What’s for dinner tonight!”
Love Love this!!
I like using greek yogurt instead of mayo/sour cream.
My today’s victory was choosing orange juice and water over a soda…I love my sodas, BUT today I’m changing my eating habits over again! I’ve lost 63lbs and ready to lose a lot more!
Love the pasta recipes!
My husband and I are in our second week of our fitness journey. We are also working on our financial health and decluttering the house. We’ve got a lot to work on!
drinking more water!
I love the reduced fat pasta idea… I haven’t seen that !I had already replaced our pasta to be whole wheat / whole grain. I’ll try the tortillas!
I love frozen vegetables!
My little victory was getting all of my Christmas decorations taken down.
After breaking my leg two months ago, I have started doing rehab exercises for it. Finishing the exercises today is my victory!
Little victory today? Keeping up with our 4 month old golden retriever puppy. The cold doesn’t stop her. And even though it’s freezing and snowing, we were outside this morning with her. Thanks for the great recipes. Every little change really helps.
I love to use frozen herbs…just a great time saver and adds extra freshness to any meal!
I love my Kroger and I love my Kroger brand products. Thanks for the great recipes!
Made healthy fruit smoothies for breakfast (for the kiddos & myself) :)
Yay for Kroger :) I enjoy their selection of healthier options!
My victory today was getting out of the house for awhile even though it is so cold outside. Up next is riding my stationary bike for 45 minutes and juicing a grapefruit and mint for an afternoon pickup. Thanks for the chance! :)
Such a great giveaway! My husband and I are big Kroger-brand fans (we love their Private Selections!) Trying to do better about cutting back the sweets more.
I actually ate breakfast today, overnight oats. This is a little victory, since I never eat breakfast on the weekdays!
My little victory today was getting dishes done, tea made, and laundry started. While getting my one year old fed twice, a snack, diaper changed twice, and now laying him down for a nap. All this after getting up at 6am and getting my five year olds lunch ready, him dressed for school, and on the bus.
My little victory for today was pushing through my workout even though I was tired and also keeping current on my 30 days of yoga challenge for this month and loving the challenge that it is!
I’m swapping water for soda. Baby steps for me. If I can continue to do this, I can do just about anything.
These recipes sound amazing and the dishes so yummy. can’t wait to try the crispy shrimp!
I can’t wait to try all these recipes
I love to throw extra veggies into everything, so the Kroger Frozen Veggies have to be my favorite instant skinny swap!
I shop at Kroger regularly and always keep their frozen veggies in the freezer, because they are so handy when making soups, etc. I have never purchased the reduced calorie pasta though, so I will give it try. I love pasta, so anytime I can shave a few calories off of a plate of pasta, that is great. Thanks for the great recipes!
Thanks for the giveaway.
Recipes look terrific!
Will give them a try!
I try to prep as many of my meals and snacks as possible in one evening. This helps me to make healthier choices when I’m in a hurry. Kroger is one of my favorite places to shop because of the variety of healthy fresh foods, international foods, and a wonderful deli/meat/cheese/sushi section.
I notice the change by using low fat sour cream and cream cheese in some of my casseroles.
I had no idea about the reduced calorie pasta. I am definitely looking for that when I go to the store this week. :)
I love Kroger and their skinny swaps!
I always try to add a protein to every meal! It keeps you filled up and not searching for snacks during the day!
Waking up a 1/2 hour earlier (4:45!) to workout.
My victory was getting to work on time…it was one of those mornings.
My victory was waking up this morning to my loving FAM. Seeing folks you love in the morning is so AWESOME. Won’t have it any other way!
This is my new favorite site! Informative, practical PLUS a giveaway?!??! What more can a girl ask for?
completed a Western
Completed a Western Blot from start to finish!
This is such a blessing! I’m really excited to try out your rice recipe – that sounds like something my kids would like, too! :)
I actually ironed, did laundry and vacuumed! This is rare in one day with two young children.
My family went Vegan about 4 years ago. We love Almond milk instead of cows milk. There is also a fabulous cheese we swapped instead of regular cheese. Go Veggie Shredds are our favorite. They melt just like regular cheese. We use Earth Balance ‘butter’ for our butter swap and soaked cashews blended up as a “cream” in many dishes. Seriously, you can not tell a difference!
My little victory for the day was making dinner for tonight, last night. I also swapped out the sour cream for greek yogurt. I’m excited to see how it turns out tonight.
Frozen veggies are seriously a time saver.
Stopped eating out and am cooking all my meals!
I *need* to try those noodles…
I exchange regular spaghetti noodles for veggie noodles. Their consistency is exactly the same and it helps me to work more veg into my children’s diets!
Great post! Will try some recipes this week.
I like to use applesauce in baking, light sour cream and low fat cream cheese!
My little victory for today was finding my son’s eczema cream on clearance. Woot! It really is the small things sometimes. :)
Gonna have to pick up some frozen diced onions. Huge time saver!
I love using frozen veggies. Definitely saves on time.
Frozen veggies are a must have in my kitchen. We also swap spaghetti squash for regular spaghetti noodles every once in a while!
The recipes look great! Can’t wait to try!
Thanks! Looks like a great giveaway!
Applesauce or canned pumpkin for oil in cookie recipes
What a great giveaway! Great advice making small changes to meals that still taste delicious! Wonderful post!
I am going to go buy more frozen veggies today.
Amanda, your story is exactly what I needed to hear. Your tips are helpful and I am motivated to make these small changes for my health. Thanks!
I always have frozen veggies on hand too! Thought I was cheating – glad to see so many others do too. :o)
I love whole wheat tortillas and Kroger!
Today’s victory is watching my calorie count.
I make creamy coleslaw dressing with pureed cottage cheese in place of most of the mayo.
Frozen veggies for sure!
Today’s little victory was tossing out carbs!
My little victory for today was that my two little girls woke up in time for school and no one was sick. We all made it out the door safe and sound!
I have been trying to eat healthier i love fried foods but i have been baking things instead
My little victory for today is making it in to work even though I am sick with Vertigo….also, here in Michigan it is freezing! I really wanted to just stay home in bed but I did not want to let my boss down.
I love Krogers’ frozen veggies! We use them all the time. I tweeted about this contest but couldn’t find a way to find the URL of the tweet. It just kept taking me to my Twitter app, which was no help. ha!
We love adding whatever veggies we have in the fridge or freezer. Not only does it add good nutrients it helps keep you full! We also sub olive oil or coconut oil for butter
I got dinner in the crock pot this morning! I’m aiming for that at least three days a week. I missed yesterday, but at least have today. Have tomorrow planned, crossing my fingers!
Great Giveaway! Great way to start off the new year!
The Salsa Verde enchiladas are SUCH a favorite in our house. Can’t wait to make them a little healthier now!
I bought several bags of the Kroger frozen veggies, especially the chopped peppers and chopped onions. I now can quickly add some veggie-goodness to almost any dish! Love the quality and convenience. I have lost 20 lbs just making small changes, too!
I took a walk this morning!
My little victory for today was getting all my boys’ clothing hung in their closet! I’m sure that will last 10 minutes once they need a shirt LOL. :D
I’ve started the day by logging my food. Back at it.
I love finding new heathy ways to change your favorite recipes — especially baking. You can substitute different sweeteners, applesauce etc. to make it just a little bit healthier.
Love the good ole applesauce swap too. Like you said, in baking, totally works!!! Awesome giveaway. Actually won $100 bucks from a blog, thought those contests were rigged, Ha. But obviously not!!!!
It is amazing how one change in ingredients can make such a difference.
Frozen veg are such a time saver!!
