I love to eat beautiful that is simple to make. I wanted to show you the foods that I like in case it gives you a meal idea. My mom is an amazing cook, and while I can't make food the way she can, I'd like to show you some ways to incorportate healthy ingredients in a way that tastes wonderful and makes you feel great!

Kombucha is simple, low calorie, and helps my digestive tract! Each bottle has about 2 servings, and is about 70 calories for the whole thing.

Healthy Cookie Dough

This Healthy Cookie Dough is made with chickpeas and is so hearty and makes me feel right back at home.

This cheddar pasta by SteamFresh is to die for. It is made with zucchini and lentil noodles, and takes about 5 minutes in the microwave.

I'm hooked on this blue cheese chicken salad. It is made with red onion, tomato, grilled chicken, lettuce, and drizzled with Marie's brand blue cheese vinaigrette.

Kodiak Cakes

Grilled Vegetables

Line the pan with foil Toss veggies with olive oil Place pan on the grill with a protein of your choice!

I'll take a tomato with a side of tomato please!

Quite possibly my all time favorite! 👍🏻Sliced tomatoes, coarse salt, and fresh basil

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Stay on track, and feed your husband tasty food! One cauliflower pizza crust, cooked 2 ways. 3 cups of riced cauliflower 3/4 cup low fat cottage cheese 1TBS Italian seasoning 2 eggs Bake on 425 for 20 minutes, pull out of the oven, add tomato sauce and toppings. I used regular pepperoni and cheese for the boy, and grilled chicken and bell peppers for me! Bake until cheese is melted!

Fish Tacos in a Bowl

I used a 1/2 cup of warm brown rice as the base (the temperature makes this extraordinary), 1 cup chopped southwest-blend salad mix, 1/2 of an avocado, and ~4 oz of baked salmon with mesquite seasoning. Hello flavor!

My Frittata

3 egg whites 1 egg Spinach Mushrooms Tomatoes Bake for 20 minutes on 325. Top with sliced avocado and low fat cottage cheese

Whole Wheat Chicken Wrap

This chicken wrap was so good! I used 4oz rotisserie chicken (it's just easier) with cherry tomatoes, avocados and verde salsa. The sides were super simple: snap peas and mini bell peppers

Blueberry French Toast

I'd put it in the healthy-ish category. 3 slices of Ezekiel bread, 1 egg, 3 egg whites, cinnamon, 3 drops of stevia, nutmeg. Mix together, dunk bread in mixture and cook appropriately. Topping- Fage 0% plain Greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, 3 drops of liquid stevia (I mixed and warmed quickly in the microwave) and a ton of blueberries and blackberries

Salmon Burgers and Garden Vegetables

Salmon Burgers: 4 oz salmon 2 tbs Italian Parsley 2 egg whites Lemon to taste Garlic Salt Garen vegetables: Zucchini, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms sautéed with a little olive (or coconut) oil

Turkey Burger, Asparagus, Cauli Mash

I love eating healthy food that is easy to make! Lean Turkey burger from Jennie-O Asparagus spears baked at 350 for 8-10 minutes, with balsamic vinegar and a light olive oil. Cauliflower mash: 1/2 head of cauliflower riced in a food processor, cooked in the microwave for 5 minutes, and replaced to the food processor with Fage 0% plain Greek yogurt and garlic salt to taste

Sometimes Simple is Better

Check out these simple but incredibly flavorful ingredients! I love using bigger cuts of vegetables to taste each flavor individually. The salmon and shrimp didn't need any extra sauce or flavors!

Do you need a meal idea_ Last night my sweet boy took me out to celebrate and I had this perfectly c

Do you ever have days that you feel disproportionately hungry_ On days that I am extra hungry I like

Taco Salad Minus the Taco

This salad was so quick and easy to make, and it packed in a ton of flavor! 4 oz ground lean turkey with taco seasoning 1/4 Sliced red onion 2 Tbs Salsa 2 Tbs Fage 0% plain Greek yogurt Cilantro to taste

Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas are so tasty and extremely easy to make! I made a huge batch: 1 Red bell pepper 1 Yellow bell pepper 1 Green bell pepper 1 Red onion 10 oz chicken sliced Add fajita seasoning, and you are ready to go! Avocado adds great healthy fat. I like to skip the tortillas and save my calories for the avocado!

Salmon Salad and Broccoli

Spring mix served as the base of this salad.. Topped with chopped vegetables (celery, red bell pepper, red onion) and I used a creamy balsamic dressing. The salmon was baked at 325 for 10-12 minutes. I cooked the broccoli on the same cookie sheet sprayed with light olive oil

Grilled Vegetables

Chopping your vegetables in bigger pieces can give a ton of flavor on the grill! It makes an excellent side

Snack Time

2 slices of Ezekiel Bread 1/2 large avocado 5-8 cherry tomatoes Salt and peper as desired

Spaghetti Squash

This meal can be so quick if your spaghetti squash is already cooked. I cooked extra lean turkey with Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and a hint of dill, then I added in organic low sugar tomato basil sauce, added precooked spaghetti squash, topped with cilantro and low fat cottage cheese.

Food Prep

-Brussel Sprouts: cut in half brush on olive oil and balsamic vinegar and roast in the oven at 325. -Turkey Burgers: Mix lean ground turkey with fresh dill and a bit of feta cheese -Broccoli: place on an oven sheet brush with olive oil and garlic salt. Roast in the oven at 325.

Results of Food Prep

I like to mix up my turkey burgers if I am going to make them in bulk so I get a different flavor. These were made with fresh dill to have a hefty kick!

Salad Prep

If I prepare a bunch of salads in advance I am way more likely to eat them as a side or add protein and have them as my main meal. There is nothing magical about the ingredients, but it helps me to cook something healthy when the side is already made!

Omelet

I love eggs and sometime I like to mix it up with a savory omelet. I use: 3 egg whites 1 whole egg Chopped up vegetables Mushrooms Bell peppers Asparagus I like to add a touch of low fat cottage cheese on the side! Salt and pepper and you are good to go

Mini Pizzas

1.5 cup raw cauliflower (shredded or thrown in the food processor), 3 egg whites, 1/2 cup LF cottage cheese, Italian seasoning, mix together and bake at 400 degrees (parchment paper helps)! Top with low sugar tomato sauce and your favorite toppings (I like sautéed mushrooms, bell peppers, and red onions). Eat with a fork and enjoy!

One Foil Packet

In one foil packet I cooked 1) salmon rubbed with mesquite seasoning and 2) asparagus sprayed with coconut oil and garlic salt on 350 for 12 minutes. I mixed fresh dill into low fat cottage cheese as a garnish to cut the spice of the mesquite.
