Turkey and squash casserole

This recipe is so easy and a hit my house! I feel like I may say that about all of the recipes posted recently, but they really are our faves.  I'm working on a Tony Robbins experience post. Trying to change up the pace from all the recipes I've been doing. It was too good of an experience not to share and I needed some time to come off the cloud I was on. Still on it but my adrenaline isn't quite as high. Stay tuned for the post to find out what I'm talking about. Have an amazing week friends!

Coconut Lime Chicken thighs with Jasmine Rice

This is one of my favorite hearty meals. Packed with tons of flavor from coconut and a hint of lime. You can make double the batch and have a few meals left over. You know I'm always using recipes that have plenty of left overs to feed my family.

Healthy Egg Muffins

Hey hey! My husband recently requested frittata's so I whipped up what I am now calling Healthy Egg Muffins.. They are so good and spongey. Pretty darn close to a frittata minus all the guilt from butter and cheese. 


I think you guys will quickly catch on that my family and I like to use all whole ingredients.  This means a ton of meat, fish eggs, vegetables and fruits.  We like whole foods and avoid sweeteners, sugar, dairy, gluten and grains. We never count calories either. I never have, I am not sure that I ever will. I eyeball what I feel is a good amount of protein, carbs and fats. When you eat whole foods without all of the crud and processed stuff you find that the calories really even out because you are skipping on all the fillers that can up your calorie count for the day.



I think you will also notice that my recipes are for big batches. I do this because now-a-days I make meals to have plenty of left overs. This is key to good meal prepping. If you don't enjoy left overs, I suggest that you give them another try and try to change your mind set about them because there's the alternative to left overs which is usually a ton of money wasted buying your meals and take out. Ew. Just ew. 


Anyway, I hope that you will try these out and give me feedback on how it turned out for you. I would love to make suggestions if something doesn't turn out right. This is super easy, a step-1 in cooking if you ask me. Just follow the instructions and you will totally get the hang of it. My biggest tip is to just keep trying. Cooking didn't just happen for me, I had to continue trying and continue learning every step of the way. Put on some music and get excited to be cooking a healthy meal for yourself and your family or friend(s). Whomever! It's time for people to get excited for whole foods again. Let's start changing the way we view foods. 



Also, major plus - these are toddler and baby approved! So. much. yes!

Happy cooking and healthy eating, from my family to yours. 





Healthy Egg Muffins


SERVES 12


Ingredients


24 eggs
½  cup of coconut milk
⅓ cup nutritional yeast
⅓ cup green onions
12 pieces of bacon
2 cups of spinach
Salt & Pepper to taste


Recipe


Cook bacon, set aside to cool.  Cut into pieces once cooled.


In a large bowl add eggs, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, green onions, salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything well.


In 24 muffin tins, use silicone muffin liners to avoid any sticking. Pour a drop of oil into each liner and swirl the oil around well.

OR pour a good amount of coconut oil or avacado oil to coat the bottoms of the tins. Slowly pour into muffin tins to fill half way.


Add 2-3 spinach leaves then sprinkle a generous amount of bacon.


Cook at 350 for 12 minutes.


Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing them from the tins. They will come out of the oven very puffy, You will immediately see them start to settle once they are out of the oven. With a spoon, wiggle them out. They shouldn’t stick if you coated the muffin tins well.


Notes:


  • These are very good cold - Try it.
  • If you're new with coconut milk, shake it well and make sure it is mixed well. I suggest soaking the can in warm water before using it.
  • I like more carbs with my breakfast so I also bake sweet potatoes in the oven and add them to the side of these.
  • I did not use muffin sheets. I don’t recommend using them either.
  • Use the Pyrex 1-pint measuring cup (or something similiar) for easier pouring.
  • You’ll need a pan for frying bacon, whisk, pyrex measuring cup, 24 muffin tins.
