Torani Skinny Vanilla Latte from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

If you love indulging in flavored coffee drinks, but want to cut back on sugar, don’t feel like you need to compromise on flavor. Rather than deprive yourself, try substituting your regular coffee flavorings with a low- or no-sugar substitute. This way, you don’t have to give up the premium drinks made with rich, flavorful coffees and creamy milks, and you can still keep your bikinis for summer.

You can customize the Torani® Skinny Vanilla Coffee Latte to your diet by using a nonfat milk, a sugar-free or low-sugar whipped cream (or no whipped cream at all) and changing the flavor of the sugar-free syrup. In the summertime, experiment with new coffee beverages by pouring the skinny vanilla latte over ice to make an iced coffee or blending it with ice in your blender for a delicious low-calorie frappe.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

A few months ago, we asked you what you wanted to see more of on Everyday Good Thinking, and we got a few responses that really stood out. One such request was for healthy meals and meals for one or two people.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

We created this delicious grilled chicken for the singles and couples who made these requests, but it’s easily adaptable for groups of any size. If you need to feed a larger crowd, simply multiply the recipe as needed.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

The key to the pronounced lemon flavor in the chicken is the gorgeous marinade that’s prepared in a single-serve blender. Lemon juice, lemon zest, paprika, red pepper, rosemary, salt and pepper get blended into a quick and easy marinade that has a little zip and a lot of zing.

Let the chicken marinate for at least half an hour with some lemon slices and rosemary. You can cook the chicken on an indoor grill like we did (It’s still too chilly for us to grill outside most days.) or you can use an outdoor grill – whichever you prefer is fine.

I love the sizzle sound when you place something on a hot grill and the impressive grill marks you get when searing the chicken and lemons. Adding a few wet sprigs of rosemary to the grill creates a slight aroma the chicken absorbs. Flip it halfway through cooking, and use a meat thermometer to make sure you’re reaching the correct cooking temperature without overcooking the chicken. With poultry of any kind, you’re aiming for 165°F at the center.

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Our recipe calls for serving the spicy lemon chicken breasts with a side of rice and we think it goes well with vegetables like asparagus, green beans, broccoli, peas, Brussels sprouts or couscous. It makes just enough for two, but if you’re cooking for one, why not make the full recipe and save the leftovers for lunch the next day?

Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

There are many other uses for leftover spicy lemon chicken, so why not make a big batch sometime? I’ve used the leftover chicken breasts to top Greek salads, pasta with cream sauce, on grilled panini sandwiches and in chicken salad. There’s really nothing it can’t do – and the flavor is great.

March is National Nutrition Month, and for many people, the best health includes following an eating plan catered to specific dietary needs. For some, this means eating gluten-free. Whether your gluten-free diet is a necessity or a general guideline, you may find baking bread at home to be a better option than the stale, crumbly options available on most grocery store shelves. And with a dedicated gluten-free bread machine, you can hope to avoid cross-contamination.

Kale, Cucumber and Cilantro Green Juice from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Don’t be intimidated by the vibrant appearance of green juices. They can be incredibly revitalizing and are commonly regarded as an excellent boost to your health. Adding a sweet fruit like an apple to your juice can mellow the “green” flavor and increase your juice’s drinkability. We used this technique here, creating a light, cool juice that will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated.
