Ever been caught in a food rut? I get that way a lot. Eating healthy can feel boring when my mind begins to perceive fruits, vegetables and proteins as being very limiting. So, lately I’ve been trying to bring my cooking abilities up a level!
These tasty looking sandwiches (which I came up with on my own, aside from the buns 😉 ) are made with this sweet potato buns recipe, homemade turkey patties and homemade guac. They’re *amazing* and make your belly happy.
- 1lb Ground Turkey
- 1 tbsp. Parsley (preferably fresh)
- 1 tsp. Onion Powder
- 1/3 c. Diced Onions
- 1 tstp. Minced Garlic
- 1 Egg
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
Mix it all together in a large bowl, shape into patties then either toss them on the grill or cook ’em up in a skillet.
Tip: It’s so nice to have these cooked patties in the freezer! I heat them up with scrambled eggs, throw some spaghetti sauce on them and eat with veggies, make a yummy mushroom sauce to drizzle on them and more. Seriously, they’re a universal must. You could also use beef but I’ve always been sensitive to pretty much any meat besides poultry so it’s turkey and chicken for me.
- 1 Avocado
- 1 tbsp. Salsa (or diced tomatoes)
- Pinch of Cumin
- Pinch of Garlic Powder
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
Mash everything up in a bowl then scoop onto your cooked patties! Yum!
I finally got around to making this Paleo Banana Bread Muffins recipe. OH. MY. GOSH. It’s a game changer… so amazingly delicious when paired with coffee, fruit and a hard boiled egg for breakfast. Wow! Every single ingredient is healthy, nutritious and full of fuel for your body – no sugar, dairy, or grains! Oh, AND it’s husband tested and approved. He says it’s the best he’s ever tasted, which is such a compliment because he’s always loved store-bought sugary banana breads.
Here are a couple essential products I try to ALWAYS have on hand…
First, the SimplyNature Organic Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce is quite honestly the most flavorful tomato based sauce I’ve ever had. It contains no sugar and that’s rare for spaghetti sauce! Aldi carries them for……$1.99!!! Whole30 compliant, people!
Secondly, the Primal Kitchen Mayo is just for convenience. I’ve made my own mayo before, and it tasted good, but if purchasing a jar can make my life easier then DUH. Whole Foods has these for $9.99.
Anyway, always remember that blogs, Facebook, Instagram and many other social media outlets only show you what others want you to see. While I do enjoy eating healthy, that’s not always the case. In fact, I’ve been on a crap food binge for about a week now (you know why, ladies 😉 ) so be confident in YOU and don’t compare yourself to someone else’s image or fitness journey. Create your own!
