RECIPE: Sausage and Cauliflower Rice Taco Skillet

 

This was one of the most satisfying clean meals I think I have ever had! And yes - I did go with dairy on this one, even though I typically try to avoid dairy. But I felt this one really needed it!

My husband wasn't a huge fan of this lol. He hates cauliflower though. But my 3 year old ate a ton of it!

This makes about 4 adult servings, or fed my family with littles and I had enough for work the next day too. Would make great meal prep lunches!

What ya need:

1 pound ground sausage (I used turkey sausage)

1/4 cup diced red onion

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 medium can petite diced tomatoes

1 12oz bag steamed cauliflower rice (or 1 head, riced)

2 tablespoons taco seasoning (no added sugar or other additives)

3/4 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice

Optional garnishes: cilantro, greek yogurt, diced avocado, or guacamole

What ya do:

1. In a large skillet, brown sausage until cooked through, breaking it up as you go. Stir in the red onion and garlic....

RECIPE: Coconut 'NO'atmeal

I LOVE oatmeal. I really do. It's warm and satisfying. It can be made into many different flavors. It's also very convenient to have on my busy mornings at work! 

BUT - sometimes I need something more low-carb. Sometimes I need something higher fat. That is when I LOVE to make NOatmeal! 

It's similar to oatmeal but there are no oats in it. Instead it has lots of health-packed seeds and coconut. 

If you give this a try, I'd love to hear what you think! Drop a comment and tell me, or even better, make sure you're in my free Facebook group and post about it or tag me on Instagram!

Keto for Beginners

The Keto diet has been talked about a lot recently. Short for Ketogenic, the Keto diet is a concept of eating high fat, low carb, and moderate protein. This nutrition method is not new – even though it seems like the most recent fad. It has actually been around since the 1920’s. It was created by researchers working at John Hopkins Medical Center to successfully treat epileptic patients. Once pharmaceutical drugs for epilepsy came to market, the Keto diet was all but forgotten. It was pushed even further from mind in the 80’s when the fat free craze hit.

Fat, protein and carbohydrates are the only three macronutrients (macros) that exist. For macro, think big. These are large particles and they contain calories. On the flip side, micronutrients (micros) are small. They are things like vitamins and minerals and
do not contain calories.

When adopting a nutrition method that focuses on macros, like the Keto diet, it is important to have an understanding of these macros...

RECIPE: Pulled Pork Tacos with Low Carb Tortillas and Slaw

Ya'll know I LOVE tacos. LOOOOOVE them. 

They are just so versatile! There are breakfast tacos, lunch tacos, dinner tacos, even dessert tacos! You can get them with just about any protein or veggie. They can be made vegetarian or vegan. You can make them gluten free or dairy free. I mean seriously.... they are the best food EVER. 

So of course I needed to find a way that I can fully enjoy some amazing tacos while being able to stay on pretty much any plan I am doing, and will work for my clients too. Not to mention, one that my family will love because I do not make multiple meals!

So I put together this recipe! 

If you don't need to stay as low carb, you can use other tortillas. If you need to adjust these in any way, you totally can. That's what I love about them!

This is a pork recipe I have been using for YEARS. We LOVE it. And it's fantastic for meal prep day. Make this pork and then you can eat on it all week by having tacos one time, putting it on salad another...

RECIPE: Pulled Pork Tacos with Slaw

Do you love tacos?? I know I do! Tacos are legit LIFE. I mean think about it...you can have a breakfast taco, lunch taco, dinner taco, or even dessert taco. SO. MANY. OPTIONS.  Maybe it's the way the tortilla acts as the perfect vessel for all the various things one can consume in taco form. I don't know. But they are AMAZING.

BUT - many of the taco ingredients out there can be less than desirable for someone working on health and weight loss. Clean tortillas are especially difficult to find. Throw in needing to be gluten free and it's even harder!

I decided to make a taco that had my favorite meat and flavors, but with a high fat low carb gluten free clean tortilla that was easy to make. The first time I made them, I was instantly in love!

When I am in the high fat low carb phase of my nutritional routine, I can make these delicious tacos, satisfying my cravings without sacrificing all my hard work!

If you make this, I would LOVE to see a picture and to know what you think!! Be...

RECIPE: Onion Soup

I absolutely LOVE french onion soup. It’s so warm and comforting. It has the most amazing flavor. To be totally honest, I’m especially obsessed with the one from Panera! Theirs is SOOOOO good.

But I went and looked at their ingredients for the soup and found that even though Panera is known for being pretty clean eating, it does contain white flour and white sugar. Granted it is still way better than many other places! But I wanted to make one that did not contain any sugar or flour.

So I did! I made a batch of this over the weekend and portioned it out into containers to have for lunches during the week at work.

I want to preface this by saying I try to avoid gluten and cow dairy, so I did not put any bread or cheese on mine, however you totally could! I will probably have it from time to time with some gluten free bread and maybe some goat cheese, but for now, I just wanted a good low carb soup option!

Plus, did you know that onions are extremely good for you and...
