    Turkey Burger with Cauliflower Buns

    This ain’t no In N Out, but it won’t clog your arteries!

    DAMN I LOVE CARBS. But during the week, I try not to eat processed foods or complex carbohydrates. I limit my intake of simple carbohydrates (because you still need them but not too much), so any type of whole-grain bread, pasta, or brown rice is a no no for me during the week. This recipe for the cauliflower buns is something I recently discovered, and have been serving my taste buds verrrrrry well. read more “Turkey Burger with Cauliflower Buns”

    Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

    cauliflowerfriedrice

    Chicken fried cauliflower rice! New favorite veggie hack. (I hate vegetables and I’m trying to find any way to sneak them in deliciously… Sorry zucchini noodles- not completely on board!)

    I know I usually post the recipe but I kind of made this one up before and during my cooking so I’m not exactly sure of my measurements. But what’s great about this is that it’s really up to you what you want your “fried rice” to have! read more “Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice”

    Zucchini Fries

    Zucchini Fries

    Made this twice already. Family approved so you know it’s good. Oven baked and sneaking in veggies? Whaaaa? Pretty healthy (and tasty) alternative to potato fries or chips. Great snack but also a filling lunch (if you had like 4/5 of the entire pan of zucchini fries… woops #sorrynotsorry).

    Overall: 14/15

    It took a longer time than I expected. It always does though. I guess in my head, the steps it takes to make it is simple. Cut up zucchini. Dip zucchini into butter (in my case, eggs for the healthier alternative) then dip into spices/crumbs. But I guess the actual task of peeling the zucchini, cutting the zucchini, and then having the dip every single zuch-fry into egg then press into spices/crumbs takes a while. I think it literally took me like an hour to do all the steps, plus baking time.. then cleaning. Agh. Anyway, it was delicious though. Worth it. read more “Zucchini Fries”

    Spicy Turkey Meatballs & Zoodles with Marinara

    This was one of my very first “healthy” dishes I cooked! It was a pretty long process since I’m an amateur cook still learning to cut/slice things efficiently and what not. I didn’t have the right tools to make the zoodles (used a peeler on the zucchini so strips were wider) but the marinara covered any zucchini taste left (haha- I’m not a huge fan of veggies). The meatballs turned out really good, which I’m happy about! Overall, great dish I would totally make in the future. No, the zoodles still do not taste like pasta at all but covering it in marinara makes it totally okay. Not bad for a legit first dish by myself. read more “Spicy Turkey Meatballs & Zoodles with Marinara”
