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: Low Calorie Low Carb – Shakshuka Stuffed Peppers

Ok this is a Skillet Dish, by Tori Avery, but I try to make everything more simple! There’s not enough time in a day!

Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
½whole Medium Brown Or White Onion, {I hate onion 86 it)
Peeled And Diced 1 clove Garlic, Minced  {Used Minced 2tbsp}
6 whole Medium Green Or Red Bell Pepper, {depends how many peppers we are going to stuff}
4 cups Ripe Diced Tomatoes, Or 2 Cans (14 Oz. Each) Diced Tomatoes
2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste {who wants to open a can for 2tbsp 86 it}
1 teaspoon Chili Powder 
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 pinch Cayenne Pepper (or More To Taste– Spicy!) 
6 whole Eggs  {depends how many peppers we are going to stuff!} You can substitute egg whites or Muscle Egg Organic
½Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Parsley {I rather have cilantro}
{And you know me by now I want jalapeños in everything!
Add 3 jalapeños}
Lets try 6 full peppers so 12 halves!

take all Ingredients above minus the peppers and put it in a mixing bowl and whisk together (easier to scramble eggs first then mix in other stuff)

take 6 peppers and cut in half long ways and hollow them out!

fill each pepper with the above ingredients if there’s anything left over and you ran out of peppers then use a muffin tin and don’t waste mixture.

bake on 400 degrees until eggs are cooked. approx: 18-20 min.

Then enjoy your low carb feast!

I will be trying this this week! I will also probably prepare it in the future when I go away to Air Force Drill Weekends! its easy, fast and portable!

Practical application:
1tsp cumin
1tsp cayenne
1tsp paprika
1tsp Kashmiri curry (ran out of chili powder)
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups egg whites
1/2 tsp fresh chopped parsley
2tbsp tomato paste

I forgot the garlic and olive oil ughh!

I really wanted cheese bad!!! Some shredded mozzarella!!

**Update** January 29th 2014
Feeling it needed something, but not wanting to add cheese I reached for the fig balsamic glaze! And drizzled a little on. It only adds 40 calories for 4 pieces of pepper. (For me 2 separate meals 2 halves per meal)

This time I got the chili powder and increased the egg whites and decreased the tomatoes to one can

20140202-160135.jpg

I perfected my recipe:
2 cups egg whites
1tbsp cumin
1tbsp saffron
1tbsp Madras curry
1tbsp cayenne pepper
2tbsp mild chili powder
1tbsp paprika
1 can diced tomatoes 14.5oz

Then drizzle with balsamic fig glaze right before you eat it

Recipe: Macho Tuna Grenades or Steak & Mashed Cauliflower Grenade!

What is more macho then a tuna grenade! Eating a low carb diet is hard at times. You can’t have bread, so how can you make a sandwich?

Make a Macho Tuna Grenade!

Large tomato

Can of Tuna

Kraft Fat-free Mayo 1tbsp

Fresh Basil Leaves

Optional: Fig Balsamic Glaze

Directions:

Almost like a Caprese Salad, minus the Mozzarella and instead adding tuna…

In a bowl Mix tuna with mayo

Cut top off tomato and save
take a spoon and hollow out tomato and throw out or use for something else…

stuff a fresh basil leaf or 2 in the tomato, fill with tuna and drizzle with Fig balsamic glaze and replace Grenade top!

Eat: Either be a real macho man and pick it up and eat it like an apple or slice and enjoy, but don’t throw it like a grenade, because it tastes too good!

Be creative:
You can also use chicken salad or egg salad or Steak and Mashed Cauliflower see recipe below:

1 steak: I like Filet Mignon

Steak seasoning of your choice

1/2 Cauliflower Head

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp Ghee or Clarified Butter

1/8 cup Coconut Milk (though I needed much less than this to keep it from being runny)

Black Pepper to taste

Sea Salt to taste

Directions:
Season Steak with Black Pepper and Sea Salt, and Grill to desired degree!
Boil Cauliflower then put in bowl and mash, mix in Garlic Powder, Ghee, Coconut Milk and finished Steak, then stuff Tomato for the Manliest Grenade ever!!

Remember your healthy Indian Spices in the previous post: Healthy Healing Oatmeal, they can be added anywhere!
