I love to eat tasty foods, so I've learned to create simple, fresh, clean meals with limited, colorful ingredients to make sure I get my pleasure AND my nutrition!
- browned ground turkey with sautéed onions and mushrooms (spices: pepper, paprika, basil, garlic powder)
- boil some organic peas (these have an AMAZING taste, no spice needed!)
- boil fresh cauliflower till very soft, used a hand blender to get it smooth and creamy with garlic and pepper and a touch of butter.
- layer it all in a casserole pan and toss in oven to broil (to get a nice browning on the mashed cauliflower and heat up the ingredients if they've cooled):
Dessert was banging, too! Fresh fruit and less than a serving of sunflower seed butter made a decadent ice cream treat!
Put in food processor frozen banana slices, frozen blackberries and a spoonful of sunflower seed butter:
Process till it turns into ice cream (it took a little longer than my earlier attempts because of the frozen raspberries)... Put a dab of sunflower seed butter on top and enjoy!
We had a really special dinner and dessert together, without a huge calorie investment and with tons of nutrition to help fuel our bodies for our lives.
It took a long time of practice, but I can eat dinner at home every night of the week for many weeks and never get bored or feel like I'm being deprived!
Cheap and healthy :)
Enjoy your day!
