I’m always on the hunt for high-protein, low-carb food options and this one is AWESOME! Seriously! It’s going to be in weekly rotation from now on!
- 6-7 oz water packed tuna
- 1/4 cup mozzarella
- 5 oz Shiitake mushrooms
- 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 2 tbsp dijon mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients (besides for mushrooms) together in a large bowl. Remove stems from the mushrooms and build the sliders by evenly dividing the tuna mixture among the mushroom caps. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
*1 red, 1 green, and 1 blue for 21 Day Fixers
Hello friendlies!! Sorry I’ve been such a slacker getting posts up on this page. I’m going to try to be better.
No really. I am!
I mean, at least better than I have been.
So onto this recipe…THE BOMB!! My friend Aimee originally sent it to me and then I added a little to it. I make a double batch to keep in the fridge for a quick and easy reheat. I’ll eat them plain, on a bun with blue cheese, tomato, avocado, and red onion (Yum!), or crumbled up with zucchini noodles and tomato sauce. You can even freeze half to reheat at a later date. They are so versatile and really help me stay on track with my eating plan.
- 4 small shallots (chopped)
- 8 oz baby bella mushrooms (chopped)
- 2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- several fresh parsley leaves (chopped)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp worchestershire
- 2 lb. ground turkey
Mix all ingredients together and form into patties. Heat grill to medium-high. Cook burgers 5 minutes. Turn and grill until almost cooked through, about 3-5 minutes more.
I only share recipes the whole family likes. These are a big hit in our house. I hope they are in yours as well!!
One of my favorite clean eating and quick lunches! No cooking required!
- Bibb or Boston Lettuce for wraps
- 1 can chunk light tuna in water
- 1 cup of veggies – broccoli and celery
- 1/2 cup grapes
- 1/4 cup creamy herb dressing
Creamy herb dressing
- 1 medium avocado
- 1.5 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 4 tbsp. chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
For Dressing: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Store leftover dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator. This dressing is wonderful on salads, but also great as a dip for raw vegetables.
For Tuna Salad: Mix all ingredients together and place into lettuce wraps.
Let me know what you think!
This is one of my favorite sides. It tastes so much like fried rice my kids don’t even notice the difference. Plus, it heats up really well so this is a great meal you can prepare beforehand and reheat.
- Cauliflower head
- frozen bag of mixed veggies (I like just carrots and peas)
- 1 onion
- 2 eggs or 4 egg whites
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
- 2 tbsp Low Sodium soy sauce
First wash the cauliflower and then using small sections pulse into “rice” with your blender. A Vitamix is awesome for this! Next on medium heat, saute the onions until brown. Add the Cauliflower, half a bag of frozen veggies, and all the seasonings. Cook for about 6-7 minutes constantly mixing until the cauliflower is soft. Push the mixture to one side and on the other side add either 2 mixed eggs or 4 egg whites and scramble.
When the eggs are finished cooking mix all together. We like ours served with teriyaki chicken.
We have an awesome neighborhood restaurant Padavan’s that serves a Paleo shrimp and spinach zoodle dish. It’s my standard order and I wanted to make it at home for my whole family. This is a very close to the original and so very healthy!
- 1 pd. shrimp
- 3 zucchini
- 3.5 c. spinach
- 1.5 c. kale
- 1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 onion
- 5-6 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 5-6 basil leaves, diced
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
Using a peeler, discard the top layer of the zucchini and then peel into zoodles (zucchini noodles). Set aside. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan and sauté the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add the prawns and sauté until pink (about another 5 minutes). Add the spinach and kale. Cook until wilted. Stir in the tomatoes, basil and zoodles and heat until warm. Makes 4 servings.
This egg souffle is awesome for lunch while on the 21 Day Fix. It makes 4 servings and reheats nicely.
- 1 (10oz) package of frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheese (I used half feta and half mozzarella)
- 1 yellow onion chopped
- 4-5 minced garlic cloves
- 1/2 red pepper chopped
- 5-6 mushrooms chopped
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp cumin
Saute cut up veggies in a skillet. Add drained spinach to the skillet and simmer until the moisture has evaporated. In a large bowl, combine beaten eggs, cheese, and spices. Add spinach mixture to eggs and pour into a greased glass pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Love doing these Turkey Meatballs for dinner. I eat mine with a spinach salad and serve my family spaghetti and meatballs. It’s an easy way to cook for both your family and yourself!
- 1 lb ground lean turkey
- yellow chopped onion
- 1/2 c. gluten free panko
- 1 egg
- 4-5 chopped garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp. parsley
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp pepper
Mash all the ingredients together and place on a greased cooking sheet. Back at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
* Next time I might add a little chopped up spinach for extra hidden veggies for my boys. ;o)
** If you are following the 21 day fix, I use 2 turkey meatballs as 1 red container.
Overnights oats is my new obsession. It is PACKED with protein and so filling.
- 1/2 c. oats
- 1 scoop Shakeology (I used vanilla, but any flavor will work…even strawberry!)
- 1/2 c. greek yogurt
- a tiny pour of almond milk
- 1/2 c. water
- 1 tsp. pb2
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- cinnamon (to your taste)
- stevia (to your taste)
Mix all ingredients into jar or cup of your choice, stir completely, and then refrigerate overnight. In the morning you can either eat cold or heat for 2 minutes. I like mine warmed up and topped with banana.
*Another great addition would be to add a orange container of ground flaxseed.
Great vegetarian dish here. It is a bit labor intensive but I use it for dinner and then pack up leftovers for lunches. Trust me….it’s totally worth the time.
- 1 medium sized butternut squash
- 1 bag dry black beans
- large sweet onion
- 1 tsp olive oil
- fontina cheese
- 1 ezekiel tortilla
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
Starting with the beans, rinse and soak overnight. The next day drain the water and place beans in a large saucepan. Cover with water and gently boil for 60-90 minutes. Drain water again and mix in chili powder, cumin, and cayenne.
For the butternut squash, peel and cube. Add the cubes to a baking sheet lined with foil. Toss with the olive oil and oregano. Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
To caramelize the onion, cut the onion into thin slices. Spray a skillet with a non-stick spray and sauté the onions until they are golden brown and soft (about 20-30 minutes). I then add the squash to the pan and mix together.
Cut 1 tortilla in half (for the 21 day fix 1 tortilla = 1 yellow container). Fill green container with squash/onion mixture. Fill yellow container with black beans. Fill blue container with shredded fontina cheese.
Now we can assemble our quesadillas! I use a quesadilla maker but you can easily do on a griddle as well. Start with 1/2 of a tortilla and layer with green, yellow, and blue containers. Cover with remaining 1/2 tortilla and cook till cheese is nicely melted.
For left overs, I pack the squash, onion, and beans together to be reheated during the week. It makes for a great side or snack.
This is my go-to salad for lunch while on the 21-day fix program. It’s filling, portable, and delicious.
- baby spinach
- grilled chicken
- gorgonzola cheese
- dried cherries
- green onions
- 6 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. raw honey
- 2 tsp. dijon mustard
- 6 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
To make dressing, combine vinegar, lemon juice, honey, mustard, and olive oil in blender.
green container – fill with spinach and green onions…TWICE!
red container – fill with grilled chicken. I like to grill my chicken on my Breville panini press with Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy.
blue container – fill with equal portions Gorgonzola cheese and walnuts.
orange container – fill with dressing then pour on salad.
Store leftover dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
