Recipe: homemade low carb Buffalo Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

Chicken: grilled, smoked or rotisserie

Celery (diced)

Gorgonzola blue cheese or any blue cheese

And Franks red hot (buffalo wing sauce)

Directions:

As most of you know I got an awesome Bluetooth smoker

And I have been smoking 3 chickens a week for my diet.

12-14hrs. I just pour a little mustard bbq sauce on the skin and rub it in and boom let it cook and it’s done.

Pull all the meat off when it’s hot and it just falls off the bone!

Once you have your buckets of meat take some add the ingredients above:

Celery, buffalo wing sauce, and blue cheese and then toss in a closed container! Boom that’s it!

serve over cauliflower rice and Enjoy!


Recipe: Low Carb, Low Fat General Tso’s Turkey


Gen Tso’s Ground Turkey

Ingredients:

3lbs ground turkey 

2 red peppers (any color)

1 bag riced Cauliflower 

Mushrooms (I used fresh baby Bella’s this time)

Olive oil 

1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos 


1/2 cup rice vinegar (no sodium no sugar added) 


1 spice packet of Gen Tsos chicken 


Meat seasoning optional: 

Cayenne pepper

Black pepper 

Chipotle pepper

And I topped it with jalepeno pepper flakes 

Directions:

Pour olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan a little extra is ok! 

Brown the meat and season it then drain offf the excess oil into the original container and throw out! Don’t clog your sink drain! 

Then add the remaining ingredients and stir thouroughly! 

Cover and cook on 5 for 10mins 

Add the jalepeno flakes garnish 

Remove from heat and allow to cool a little and then enjoy! It’s that easy! 


For the authentic Asian feel you can top with hot sauce and drizzle sirarcha mayo! 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Low carb, low fat, Taco Turkey Sola

This is a recipe given to me from female bodybuilder Women’s Physique competitor Caridad Sola! 


Ingredients: 

Olive oil 

3lbs ground turkey 

1 bag of Riced Cauliflower 

2 red bell peppers (any color will do)

1 packet of 30% less taco seasoning 

1 8oz can of tomato sauce 

Optional: 

Mushrooms

I added: 

Cayenne pepper 

Chipotle pepper 

Black pepper


My store wanted to charge $5.95 for riced cauliflower and this bag of diced up was $2.99 so I went with the better buy! 




You can go fresh mushrooms, I used can because they last longer and I will have them on hand. Make sure you buy the no sodium added! 

Directions:
Chop up peppers and mushrooms if you have to and set aside. 

Pour olive oil into a deep pan to cover the bottom, don’t worry if you pour too much the extra benefits will be good for you! 

Brown the turkey meat and pour off the extra fat back into the original container. Don’t pour it down the drain! You will eventually clog it! I cooked it on a 5 heat

Add the remaining ingredients cook on high for 10mins and then turn to 2 and simmer for 20mins. 

At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid, but once you cook it, the juices from the pepper will release and add to the tomato sauce! 


Serve and enjoy! 

If you want to get shredded add this to your diet regimine and work your butt off in the gym! 

**Update** 1 hr later

I made a second batch and it came out much better! The only thing I did different was brown the meat with the additional spices. I still waited to add the taco spice packet after the meat was browned and the other ingredients were added. 


Spice it up! 

Try it you will like it! 

**Update** June 25th 2017 

This is the riced Cauliflower


This is the final dish


The riced Cauliflower is more money in my store. The benefit is in the cook time! 

10 mins on high and 5mins to simmer after the meat is brown because you don’t need the extra time to make the cauliflower bits to get soft. The riced Cauliflower cooks really fast. The extra 5 mins is to make sure the peppers are cooked and the juices released. 

Check it out try it both ways see what you like best! You can also grab a whole head of Cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor/vitamix for the ultra money saver! If you have one. 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Grilled Chicken Bacon and Avocado Salad

2015/01/img_4907.png

Prep: 15 minutes

Serves: 6-8 (Depends how you serve it. It’ll go farther on sandwiches.)

6 organic chicken breasts, grilled (organic chicken breasts typically are quite a bit smaller than the huge, non-organic because of the lack of hormones. So keep that in mind)

5-6 green onions, diced

1 package bacon

2 avocados, cubed

2-3 tablespoons organic or homemade mayo

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 400 and bake bacon on a cookie sheet until slightly crispy. When finished, transfer to a lined plate and blot excess grease. Finely chop.

-Grill the chicken (I used garlic, salt, pepper and onion. Pretty basic.) and let rest. Cube when cooled.

-Dice green onions and cube the avocado. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add mayo. Start small and add more if you need to. I don’t put very much at all, as you can tell in the photo. Just enough to give it a little moisture. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sandwich buns or alone.

This is also really yummy leftovers, so it can be eaten at any temperature. Warm, cold or room temp.

-akitchencafe.com

As you know I like to take healthy Pinterest recipes and make them healthier!

I have a couple great tweaks!

1. bake the chicken you can add whatever spices to it to make you happy.

2. (Tweak) instead of bacon use turkey bacon. I used applewood farms

3. I diced up scallions and (tweak) I added fresh cilantro

4. Homemade Mayo or organic mayo is still mayo! You can dress up a turd it’s still a turd! (Tweak) I made a healthy dressing! Take a cup of plain greek yogurt add in powered ranch dressing.

2015/01/img_4909.jpg

2015/01/img_4908.png
I then added a dash of garlic powder and a dash of cayenne pepper for taste. Mix and add as needed to the recipe.

5. Cube up 2 avocados.

Mix everything up in a big bowl and use a big slotted spoon it’s much easier to mix that way!

Then I am going to make a healthy salad/spinach salad, add some vegetables and fresh mozzarella then top with the avocado chicken bacon salad mix and drizzle it with fig balsamic glaze.

Viola you are done and ready to enjoy with no guilt!

Stay tuned for the practical application!

2015/01/img_4906.jpg
My wife made sliders

2015/01/img_4910.jpg
I made a salad with mozzarella, I finished the ricotta Salata, I chopped up pickles, red pepper, used my ghost pepper hot sauce and drizzled it with the balsamic glaze.

2015/01/img_4911.jpg
It was delicious!!

Enjoy!

Remember; like always if you make one of my recipes send me an email with your practical application and pictures and I’ll post it! Feel free to comment also!


Recipe: Avocado Breakfast Pizza, low carb, gluten free!

2015/01/img_4897.png

You know I can’t just copy a recipe on Pinterest! I have to alter it to make it more healthy and delicious!

Alterations:
Instead of bacon I will use Turkey Apple Sausage with Gouda. Instead of Queso Fresco I will use Ricotta Salata I got at whole foods. It crumbles nicely and the sheep’s milk is nice!

For bread I got a low carb, gluten free flatbread for me and a whole wheat pita for my wife.

I will probably add sweet red peppers and a dash cayenne pepper to hers and straight up hot sauce to mine. Probably Trinidad Scorpion Pepper sauce!

Stay tuned for the practical application

**Update** January 22nd 2015

2015/01/img_4904.jpg

Half a lime is too much! I used a half a lime on all 4 pizzas. Also eating it like a pizza is hard! We ate it like a taco.
It was awesome however!

This was awesome! I soooo enjoyed it! I would continue to play around with the different crumbled cheeses, possibly Feta, Ricotta Salata or Queso Fresco.

Do you know any other cheese that crumbles and would be great on top? If so please tell us!

Play around with the toppings and create a new meal every time!

Play around with the meat: possibly bacon, turkey bacon, sausage, turkey sausage, lump crab meat, ground beef etc…

Next time I would add cilantro and lime juice. I love fresh cilantro!

They give the nutritional value but I think it’s for the whole recipe with the 12 tortillas so it is skewed! Eliminate the Tortillas and who would eat 12 tortillas in one sitting, even I wouldn’t do that on a cheat day!

I can’t wait to try this! Stay tuned!

I am sooooo addicted to this (thanks Nicole my baby) it is so delicious! Unsweetened is less carbs and sugar than real milk (even though real milk is naturally sweetened by the cow) this has more calcium than real milk and it has the healthy MCT’s from the coconut! This is a no brainer! Sooo love it! Yum!

Check it out! And maybe you will convert your milk habits also!

Btw make sure you get the unflavored! It tastes good and you don’t need the excess sugar and calories!! Use your calories in a wiser way than getting flavored! Unflavored vanilla tastes flavored lol

I always wondered what plain, unflavored protein tasted like! Now I know! Yuk!

Tests to be conducted since it is unflavored:

Plain shake with water
In my cheesecake recipe
In oatmeal

It has no taste when drinking, but when you are done it hits you with a really bad almost stale milk aftertaste! It’s not too bad in the cheesecake, but it’s not good either! I am going to try it tomorrow night with some Organic Cinnamon lets see if it makes a world of difference!

Cinnamon in the protein with water was an epic fail it was still gross!

Now I see why companies at the very least have chocolate and vanilla!

I will add organic choco powder into a shake next and into my oatmeal and cheesecake! Lets see if that works!

Let’s try Organic Cheesecake take 2 & 3:

20140311-234937.jpg
On top is the cinnamon and it didn’t work yuk so I added a little nutmeg too and it was great! As nutmeg is strong!

The cocoa powder also worked amazing! So there you go two ways to enjoy your natural protein! Without the aid of a blender!

The oatmeal test was a bust! I tried it with cocoa powder and cinnamon and it needed xylitol bad! I didn’t add it I choked it down, but it wasn’t pleasant!

For those of you that like unflavored all natural organic I am doing a bunch of reviews!

For those that like flavored all natural organic protein I am also doing a bunch of reviews for you.

And for those of you that like vegan protein I have a couple of the leading companies coming in a couple weeks after the natural whey companies!

What is unflavored protein good for? The answer is simple! But of course I am going to make it difficult lol!

Do you remember the King of Fitness? Jack Lalanne?

Jack was amazing and I miss him! Anyway Jack also started the juice movement! He said he was juicing himself over 7 decades with a press type machine. He released the Juice tiger and eventually the Power Juicer which is still being sold today after his death!

20140314-140458.jpg

If you are a juicer, unflavored organic whey protein is for you!

Mix a scoop or 2 in your smoothies and get the power of clean protein along with your vegetables such as spinach and carrots, hidden behind your delicious fruits.

As for bodybuilders:
I just made a shake with 1 scoop of Sweet Purity Organics and half a teaspoon of natural cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of xylitol and it wasn’t bad!

Check out their websites:

Toporganicwhey.com

Sweetpurity.com

This contains soy lecithin for easy mixing. The Next protein review: protein 17 doesn’t even contain that!

You can’t say I don’t bring you enough review options:
All natural organic flavored protein: Body Logix
All natural organic unflavored that contains lecithin for easy mixing: Sweet Purity Organics
All natural organic unflavored stripped down to the clumpy max: Protein 17

**Update** March 20th 2014
I tried it again today, I gave up drinking it! However; I used 1 scoop in my cheesecake recipe with 1tsp cocoa powder and 3tsp xylitol and it was really good today! I will use this for cooking such as: protein pudding, oatmeal and pancakes and like I said this is perfect for juicers and smoothie drinkers!

Cinnamon Roll (12oz Jar)
$11.99

Toasted Pecans…Sweet Coconut Sugar…Fresh Cinnamon Powder, combined with Homemade Almond Butter and Coconut Butter create a sweet, yet savory treat that your taste buds will enjoy.

Other flavors: maple-vanilla and Cookie Dough.
youfreshnaturals.com

This review is about: Cinnamon Roll

I was a little skeptical as most flavored nut butters are overdone and really fake tasting!

This has a strong Natural Almond Butter flavor with a pleasant aftertaste of coconut and cinnamon. I love the taste!

It’s super creamy and thin with a few occasional chunks of pecans in it! (Will squeeze out of a nutbutter and jelly sandwich! But it’s amazing to top ice cream or iced yogurt with! Also great to mix with Greek yogurt!

I really enjoyed it! However; the only drawback I see is: the size is really small! And at 11.99 a bottle it’s a little too expensive for me; I can down a whole bottle in a sitting. Trader Joe’s plain almond butter is $6.99 for 16oz if this was $8.99 for 12oz it wouldn’t be that bad because it’s a specialty, but I think at $11.99 plus shipping it is pricing itself out of many peoples weekly shopping list.

If they could get in Amazon or Wholefoods then shipping costs could be offset.

I really like the product! And wish it all the success! And I will be buying it as a special indulgence. Next I want to try cookie dough! I am afraid I will eat the entire cookie dough bottle in one shot!

Try it youfresh naturals will like it!

If a smooth Skippy like nut butter is your preference Barney Butter is for you. If you like a smooth peanut butter with tiny bits of other nuts; kind of between smooth and chunky and layered flavors like a gourmet meal then YoufreshNaturals is the way to go. If you are looking for more a coconut butter than Sweet Spreads is your best option.

This stuff is yummy and sticky like honey! Not easy to stop eating once you start so in that aspect it’s dangerous! More so than plain peanut butter! If it’s a cheat day, it’s better to cheat with this. If you want to add it to your daily diet, I wouldn’t! Like I said it’s too yummy!

Supplement Review: MHP Paleo Protein – Beef & Egg White Protein

The big pending question: Will Paelo Protein (beef & egg) give you the beefy burps like Muscle Meds Carnivor

This is a historic post! It’s our 417th post and currently we have over 99k total views!

But this is where it all started!
The first ever post for Louisjbianco.wordpress.com was: Muscle Meds Carnivor!
And the product sucked! Lol will Paleo Protein redeem the benefit of beef based protein powder in place of Whey!

Stay tuned for the historic review!

**Update**
It tastes like crap!! Yuk! Not as bad as Carnivor, but bad enough for me to stick with ETB and say screw this! Yuk! Luckily no yucky beef tasting burps! It’s just a tad better than Carnivor, but not good enough for me to buy a whole jug of it!!

**Update**
I’m going off on a rant again!
Keep in mind that any review in life is subjective! What one person hates another might love! So, don’t always take my word (or anyone’s) make up your own mind and share it (that’s why there’s a comment section feel free to comment and share on any topic) take movies as an example! If all the critics hate it, I usually like it! Lol


Green Life Market – Butler, NJ Organic Food Market, Gourmet Deli & Juice Bar! Great Tasting, Inexpensive and Healthy!

For those of you in the North Jersey (Wayne area) you might know of Natures Pavilion in Pompton Plains on Route 23 North. They have been around a long time! The best selection of health food, vitamins, tea, organic products, gluten free etc…

Until, Green Life market! Green life has the same products as Natures Pavilion, cheaper prices and a cleaner brighter atmosphere!

But that’s not what sets them apart! They have a juice bar and deli counter with great tasting products! Such as: Thai peanut butter chicken salad, tofu (fake egg) salad, seaweed salad, sesame tuna, fresh (in store made from scratch) yogurt, quinoa, and a bunch of other stuff! You have to check it out!! It is amazing!! They even have the peanut butter mill as well as almond butter and a bunch of other nut grinders, a large spice section, and they have a refrigerated section and a giant downstairs with dry goods and frozen foods. They even have a small organic produce section.

This place rocks and the owners are really nice and knowledgeable to boot! Tell Ameer Lou sent you!

They also almost always have a Groupon out! Go out of your way to get here! You won’t be disappointed!

**Update**
They are in the works to double the deli/juicebar area.

**Update** May 23rd 2014
Green Life has started a membership program, a one time $50 fee gets you membership pricing (most if which is even cheaper than amazon!) what started off as being slightly overpriced, but carried a lot of hard to find products has slashed prices to diet cheap! Not only is it much cleaner than Natures Pavilion, now it’s much cheaper instead of slightly cheaper!

Furthermore they have increased their deli offerings! Today I had a steam bowl ( kale and veggies with chicken steamed and topped with a Thai peanut sauce) they have a bunch of different sauces and combinations!

They also have wraps and numerous other offerings including puddings and a juice bar!

Check this place out it bigger and better!

They even carry Arctic Zero ice cream!
