Easy to pack healthy lunch!

22 Jul

I always pack my lunch for work and this is one of my favorites! I grab some great items from Trader Joe’s and put them together on Monday nights and put them in a mason jar and just heat them up at work.

What you need:

Trader Joes Salsa Autentica

Trader Joes Lite shredded cheese (their mozzarella cheese works too)

Trader Joes Chopped veggie mix

Trader Joes veggie patty’s (I usually get the masala one’s, but they were out)

I cook the veggies on my stove top with coconut oil and then when they are cooked, I add in the salsa and cooked veggie patty.  Then I put it into the mason jar and half way through I add a little cheese and then at the end I add a little more cheese.

That’s all! So yummy! If you want to make it even better, add the Trader Joes yogurt dip! So good!

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey Meat

8 May

  • 4 bell peppers, tops removed, seeded
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped (try a color that you are not already using)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tablespoon tomatopaste
  • low fat mozzarella cheese
  • Italian seasoning to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • ground cumin to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • I added saracha to min

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Wrap the green bell peppers in aluminum foil, and place in a baking dish. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from heat.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the turkey until evenly brown. Set aside. Heat oil in the skillet, and cook onion, garlic, mushrooms, zucchini, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and spinach until tender (I add the spinach 1/2 way through since it cooks so fast). Return turkey to the skillet. Mix in the tomatoes and tomato paste, and season with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stuff the peppers with the skillet mixture.
  4. Return peppers to the oven, and continue cooking 15 minutes.
  5. Top with cheese and eat away!

I am pretty much in LOVE! If you love rice and want to eat it without the carbs, try Cauliflower rice!

Need:

Head of cauliflower.

Seasonings. (I used butter, salt and pepper)

Blender/food processor

Microwave safe dish with a lid

What you do:

Cut the cauliflower from the head and cut it into smaller pieces.  Wash and dry the pieces and then put them into the blender/food processor and mix it till it is the size of rice.  Add Cauliflower into microwave safe dish with the lid (nothing else, don’t add water) and microwave for 5 minutes.  When it is done add what ever seasoning  you would like!
