21 Day Fix Breakfast Pie

April 24, 2017
Serves 12

I am a huge lover of Quiche , its been a favorite since I worked at Marie Callender in high school! I however try to stay away since a flaky buttery crust is not always the best for me or my belly! lol Insert breakfast pie! It’s similar to the Quiche just no crust! I was not sure how I would like it being there was no crust but turns out I love it just fine! This particular recipe  is so simple to prepare and will make two pie tins which is awesome for all you meal prepper’s one can be frozen ( be sure to slice it first) and then reheated when you want it! A great healthy grab and go breakfast!

Try it out and let me know what you think! Its been huge hit in my house and with a very busy baseball season this will be on the menu for those early morning tournaments!

Healthy Pizza Pockets – 21 Day Fix Approved

March 26, 2017
Serves 2

Pizza Pockets

So I will get straight to the point the frozen pre made hot pockets are a chemical shit storm of ingredients and personally I am not into putting poison into my families body! However I am not going to sit here and pretend I have never eaten them because I have , and so have my boys. I started reading labels and learning what ingredients were when I started eating clean almost 3 years ago. The stuff they put in those frozen meals are just flat-out horrible for you , but in the fast paced world of go go go we sometimes go for the easy grab and go.I am happy to say its been 3 plus years since hot pockets have graced my freezer lol! I knew i had to try making my own version that I could make in bulk and freeze! Travel baseball is in full swing , having healthy options that are a quick grab and go are a must!

I pride myself on what I feed my family and I kick it up a notch during baseball , soccer and hockey because I want my little athletes feeling their best when they hit the field or ice! sometimes it might not be obvious how much the wrong food can impact performance, but I promise you that loads of sugar, food dye and processed foods that sit heavy, digest poorly and have zero nutritional value will slow your child down, sap their energy after the first 30 minute spike and set them up for a crash, possibly at the worst time (with the game on the line).

So back to the hot pockets they are delicious , easy and freeze! My boys loved them and today I am actually making 2 dozen to freeze and have on hand for the busy months ahead! If you are looking for more of my baseball/sports food plan Click Here to read what we do on tournament day!

Try these out let me know what you think!

Instant Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage – 21 Day Fix Approved

March 17, 2017
1 Review (2.00 out of 5)
Serves 4-6

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – or the luck of the Irish every day!! I have been meaning to blog this recipe for a while but had to first attempt in the famous instant pot! You choose whether you want to make traditional corned beef and cabbage low and slow in the slow cooker or fast in the instant pot!! I have tried both methods now and both are fantastic!!!! Try it out and let me know what you think!

some notes about the recipe – 

I used Wellshire Farms First Cut Brisket, which has no nitrates, which is why my corned beef isn’t pink in color.

I didn’t add a lot of salt it the corned beef has a lot in it already

For the crock pot – 

Place corned beef in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the potatoes, carrots, and parsnips around the corned beef, then add enough water to cover the corned beef. Cook on low 8-10 hours or until tender. Add the cabbage wedges during the last 20 minutes of cooking time to avoid overcooking.

Healthy Chicken Chow Mein – 21 Day Fix Approved

March 15, 2017
1 Review (5.00 out of 5)
Serves 4-6

I love how versatile food can be. Seriously, real food can be so, so simple, but it can also be used for a never-ending variety of meals. I’ve recently discovered how versatile spaghetti squash can be. Brings me to Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein. I know your thinking are you kidding me Jamie? Trust me I struggled with the thought of this as well but decided to try it out anyways. This recipe makes a lot of food, which is always awesome because then you get to use the leftovers. And let me tell ya, the leftovers are almost better than the original recipe. Don’t you just love when food tastes better the second time around?!

 

So I added leftover chicken to mine however you can add any meat you choose or add in more veggies! I love that this meal can be so versatile and everyone will enjoy

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites – 21 Day Fix Approved

March 12, 2017
Serves 6

Baked buffalo cauliflower bites are a spicy , healthy , vegetarian , delicious alternative to chicken wings! Serve this easy appetizer with carrot sticks, celery and your favorite ranch or blue cheese dressing.Lets be real here I love me some boneless buffalo chicken wings however my waist says different ha ha! This recipe can be made with chicken instead of cauliflower , I have made it both ways I prefer cauliflower because I know my kiddos are getting another serving of veggies! Yep both kids ate these up and loved them! They have grown to love spicy! They both drink shakeology daily as well which I love but its a mom win when they are eating such nutritious veggies!!!

 

Seriously Addictive! I made these as an appetizer for the playoffs this year and they were so good! We couldn’t get enough of them and I loved that I was getting al the Buffalo flavor I wanted but I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating a lot of wings because I was eating veggies! Pros: Fast and a yummy way to get veggies! Cons: Not enough!

I hope you try them out and enjoy! Let me know what you think!

If you are looking for other yummy cauliflower recipes here are a few of my families favorites

Cauliflower Pizza Casserole

Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole 

Cauliflower Tater Tots 

Mexican Casserole

I have several others on the blog that are delicious these are our favorites! My tip is to look for the riced cauliflower I get mine at costco, but I have seen it at target, trader joes and whole foods!  Or you can rice it yourself I just prefer the pre riced makes life easier!

Healthy Orange Chipotle Chicken – 21 Day Fix Approved

February 21, 2017
Serves 4

This Orange Chipotle chicken is by far one of my favorite clean eating recipes. It can be made in the instant pot or a skillet I have tried it both ways and they are equally as delicious! The chicken is great to have leftover with as well, and if you are a meal prep crazy like myself having left overs makes life ten times easier lol! Not only is this recipe delicious its very budget friendly..,. delicious and inexpensive I  know I am speaking love to some! This can easily be adapted to a freezer meal as well , the second time I cooked it I saved the left over sauce in a zip lock baggy for another meal! Totally suggest doing this

My boys loved it without any rice , Oliver enjoyed it in a wrap while Hunter could hardly wait for me to put on his plate ( he was grabbing pieces before) ha ha! My husband enjoyed as a burrito with fajita veggies, so multiple dinners can be made! I have a Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Rice that would taste amazing with this chicken as well! Just omit the chicken from the rice recipe and throw in the chipotle chicken and bam a new meal! The cheesy chipotle rice is one of my 8 year old’s favorite meals I make!

I have a couple of tips for making this – prepare all the ingredients before you start cooking this recipe moves fast! also if you want to cook in the instant pot follow the skillet instructions on saute setting , then cook on manual high pressure for five minutes.

Healthy Pad Thai – 21 Day Fix Approved

February 19, 2017
Serves 8

Let’s just say this Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai is a must-try! It’s a low carb, clean up version of the original and was a huge hit at home!  Who needs unhealthy take-out? This dish is delicious and guilt-free! I also love how easy it is to customize with your choice of protein. It’s sure to be a crow pleaser, even for the picky eaters :)The flavors are similar to the traditional dish you can get at any night market or noodle stall in Thailand; there’s tamarind paste, eggs, bean sprouts, peanuts, and lots of garnishes

One cup of cooked spaghetti squash only has 42 calories, compared to a cup of cooked pasta with over 200 calories. It only has 10 grams of total carbs, which is 1/4 the amount you get from pasta. You’ll also get 9% of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber, also delivering a range of nutrients, including vitamins C and A, Potassium & Calcium. Spaghetti squash contains a fair amount of fiber,  Fiber also helps with weight reduction as it makes you feel fuller longer.

The fact that spaghetti squash has a lot of potassium makes it the ideal diet for people with blood pressure. It can amazingly lower high blood pressure if consumed over time. The folate contained in the spaghetti squash helps in strengthening the walls of blood vessels besides enhancing blood circulation. Potassium is a mineral that maintains proper muscle and nerve function, and it is also found in spaghetti squash, making it helpful for people with high blood pressure. My family enjoys spaghetti squash over regular noodles and if you have an instant pot preparing it is easier than ever! I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know how you like it!
