Ahhh Turkey Day…

My second favorite holiday. Only second to 4th of July- solely based on season. A holiday surrounding eating and chilling is my kind of holiday. Not to mention it’s dedication to pausing the craziness for a second and just saying ‘hey– life doesn’t suck so bad.’ I certainly have a lot to be thankful for, but that’s a post for another day.

Today I just want to say thanks to a website called Healthful Pursuit for sharing this recipe. I tried some last week because I had all the ingredients, and it was AWESOME. She listed this as a breakfast, but I plan on decreasing some sweetness and making it for the fam as a side dish on Turkey Day.

Here’s the link!

I plan on leaving out the maple syrup to make this a savory side dish.

Oh and PS- HIDE YA KIDS HIDE YA WIVES….

So I finally found an unsweetened almond coconut milk. Yesss! I grabbed some the other night and had a glass after dinner. Of course the only thing I could think about was how awesome it would taste with chocolate in it; and alas came this recipe. It takes about 60 seconds to make and it serves as a great low calorie dessert (about 60).

1cup of a/c milk
1tbs unsweetened cocoa (I use ghiradelli because it’s not processed with alkali which takes away cocoa’s natural antioxidants)
Stevia or other sweetener to taste

1. Melt cocoa in a little bit of milk for about 30s in microwave and let cool
2. Add rest of milk and sweetener (I used 2 packets)
3. Omnomnom!

Let me know what you guys think!

So I made actual lettuce wraps a few weeks ago with a friend but made way too much filling. I obviously didn’t want to throw it away so I kept it and realized it was delicious as-is and a little more portable than having the actual lettuce wraps. Super easy, healthy, and low calorie.

Ingredients 

1/2 package broccoli slaw
1/2 package shredded cabbage

1/2 small package shredded carrots

1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts

2-3 chicken breasts, diced

Juice of 1 small lime 

Low sodium Soy sauce to taste

Instructions

Mix everything up so its coated evenly and enjoy!
