I’m still having success using my Instant Pot. Meals like these come together very quickly and I love how you can just set it and forget it. The saute option within the Instant Pot was a big selling feature for me, as you develop so much flavor being able to brown it first.

This stew really only needs a few ingredients. Most of the flavor will be coming from the sausage that you use. I think the best options would be: mild or hot italian turkey sausage and sweet italian turkey sausage.

I love when kids snacks are cute and can be made healthier. I mean, what kid doesn’t like gummies?! Mine are no exception. Anything sweet and gummy-like that contains fruit or anything sweet seems to be a big hit!  This recipe is so versatile, and you could use any kind of fruit your kids like.

Personally, I think the best frozen fruits to use would be strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mango, pineapple, banana or a mixture. A berry mixture would be great, or a more tropical mixture with mango/pineapple/banana.

Since we’re in Feb and not at the time of year with an abundance of fresh fruit, this recipe calls for frozen fruit which is the easiest to get this time of year.

Healthy Turkey Bolognese

February 2, 2019

in Recipes

 

Not only is this healthy turkey bolognese easy, its also quick. You can get this on the table in the same amount of time it takes to cook the pasta. If you have a bit more time, its even better when its had extra time to simmer. But sometimes, during the week, getting something on the table fast is what its all about. I get it! One of the girls has gymnastics or dance every day of the week, so managing dinnertime can be a challenge. The faster the better, and something the whole family loves.

Is it ever a bad idea when there’s chocolate?! These Healthier Nanaimo Bars are pretty darn close to the original, as I was having a craving for them post-Christmas. All the same flavors are there…the graham cracker/coconut/chocolate base in addition to the creamy custard middle layer and the rich chocolate on top. Traditional Nanaimo Bars have loads of butter, but in these, I traded out the butter in the custard layer with non-fat greek yogurt.

Clam chowder is one of those meals that provide a lot of nostalgia. The first time I remember having really good clam chowder was as a kid in San Francisco out of a sourdough bread bowl on the pier. It was amazing and one of my fondest food memories!  While this version won’t be as rich as what you’ll find in San Francisco, all the delicious clam chowder flavor is there, probably about 1/4 of the calories, and is done in under 20 minutes using an Instant Pot.

Salmon is such an easy and healthy weeknight dinner. It cooks quickly, has all those healthy fats, and it doesn’t take much to elevate it to make it even more delicious. This combination of gluten-free panko, parmesan, garlic and parsley is a classic combo. What’s also fantastic is that its done in 20 minutes!
