Sometimes, I really enjoy being creative and trying out new recipes to make healthier versions of my favorite foods. Other times, I don’t want to cook, I don’t know what to cook, and I’m starving. Can you relate?
For this #foodiefriday, I wanted to post a simple meal that I cook anytime time I find myself helplessly searching Pinterest for a recipe. Check it out below:
What you need:
1lb 93% lean ground turkey
1 can of sliced carrots
1/3 cup Long grain rice (really, any kind!)
What you do:
Add 1/3 cup of your rice to a rice cooker. This is literally my favorite cooking hack ever! I don’t have to even think about cooking. I just throw in the rice and some water, and twenty minutes later, my rice is done!
In the meantime, add your ground turkey to a skillet. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Brown turkey.
At the same time, put carrots into a sauce pan on low-heat. Add in pepper and wait to boil.
Through it all onto a plate, add a La Croix to the picture (and mustard if you will), and you have yourself a healthy and quick dinner!
Have you ever wanted to indulge in burger and fries, but you realized you don’t have enough macros or calories to do so? Well, this quick little recipe is just as good as any ole burger and very diet friendly! I first cooked this meal for Sunday night football, and now, it’s a staple in my diet. Check it out below!
What You Need:
1 tsp Olive Oil
Dijion Mustard (Optional)
2 Heaping Handfuls Spinach
1 93% Lean Butterball Turkey Burger
1 Cup Baby Carrots
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 450. Cut about 1 cup of baby carrots into fourths. Spread on a cookie sheet. Pour 1 tsp of olive oil on the carrots, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 10-15 minutes!
In the mean time…
Warm a skillet on medium-high heat. Place turkey burger in pan, and sprinkle onion salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook about 5-7 minutes on each side until brown!
Add in two heaping handfuls of spinach to the skillet. Continue to cook until spinach is completely sautéed. Your carrot fries should also be done at this point!
Throw on a plate and cover in mustard (if you like!), and you have a quick, healthy yummy meal!
I recently tried this meal, and it is my absolute favorite at the moment! Not only does it require minimal ingredients, but it takes 30 minutes maximum to make! Check it out below.
What you need:
2 containers of Green Giant Veggie Spirals Butternut Squash
16 ounces of 93% Lean Ground Turkey
2 Cups of Spinach
What You Do:
First, throw your veggie spirals in the microwave for roughly 5 minutes. That way, they are fully defrosted and cooked before you add them to your dish!
Next, turn stove on medium-high heat. Add your turkey and all of the seasonings listed above to a skillet. For the seasonings, I added between 1-2 tablespoons of everything! Now, let your turkey brown.
After your meat is cooked, added both packages of veggie spirals into your pan. Mix with the meat before adding spinach. Continue to cook until all of spinach is sautéed.
