My family loves crunchy chicken tenders so I thought I would make a healthier version with a twist. In this Whole30 approved recipe, we rely on coconut flour and unsweetened shredded coconut to provide the crunch. This coating would also be delicious on fish or shrimp!
If you have a garden filled with red-ripe tomatoes, here is a recipe that will help put them to good use! In this salsa, we roast tomatoes, tomatillos (they look like green tomatoes), jalepenos, and garlic to really amp up their natural flavors. This salsa is incredibly easy to create. Be an awesome guest and bring a jar to the next barbecue or party you are invited to as a hostess gift! Continue Reading
Looking for a cool, refreshing dip this summer? Look no further than Tzatziki sauce!
Tzatziki (pronounced sɑtˈziki) is a traditional Greek dip that is made of yogurt, cucumber, dill, lemon and garlic. It makes an excellent dip for veggie trays, pita chips, or gluten free crackers. Add a dollop to a Greek inspired burger or use as a dipping sauce for grilled meats to take your meal to the next level. Heck, you could even uses this as a salad dressing! I have also added a dollop on top of my Mediterranean Pilaf Salad. So tasty! The possibilities are endless with this refreshing dip!
Best part? It’s a light, healthy dip! We use protein rich Greek Yogurt instead of the heavy sour creams and mayonnaise that are usually used in dips. It’s also loaded with gut healthy probiotics. Plus, we are sneaking some vegetables in with cucumber. So there is no reason to feel guilty if you eat it by the spoonful….not that I did that or anything.
This recipe makes about one cup so if you are making this for a party, you may want to double up!
Guacamole is my favorite! Not only is it super easy to make, but it is incredibly healthy. Avocados are one of the most nutritious fruits you can eat! They are virtually the only fruit with monounsaturated fats (aka, the good fats!) and they are cholesterol free. Research show they can actually help lower cholesterol. They are also an excellent source of potassium (more than twice the amount found in a banana!) and are packed with fiber, Vitamin E, Folic Acid and B-Vitamins. Now I don’t have to feel guilty for eating the whole batch!
This is a recipe that I came up with a long time ago. It’s very basic but everyone loves it! If you are bringing this to a party, you will want to be sure to double or even triple the recipe. It never lasts long. Also, I should warn you! People will be asking you to make it again and again. So be prepared for that!
Here is a guide for picking the perfect avocados for your guacamole. I always pop off the top to make sure it’s a good avocado before purchasing!
