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....

School Lunch Ideas!

School is in full swing now that we have been back for a while. We are starting to get comfortable in our routines, and things are feeling calmer. For now anyway!

I can’t stand how much our kids lives are junk-centric. So much sugar, so many chemicals… just all the things their little developing bodies do not need.

Did you know that since the 70s, obesity rates in children have TRIPLED?? That is wayyyyy too much. Our babies deserve better than that. And I believe that it is 100% up to us.

They are children. They do not know how food works in their bodies. They do not know about the harmful chemicals or all the sugar. It is our job to teach them. And I’m here to tell you, school certainly isn’t teaching them, with all the junk they are giving away. And don’t even get me started on the “healthy” school lunches that are served….

It is our job. And maybe YOU aren’t even fully aware of these things about food. You probably...

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...
