Honey Lime Chicken

Honey Lime Chicken

There is a major heat wave passing through Los Angeles right now. It’s hot, hot, hot. So as much as I feel ready for fall foods – pumpkins, chili, hearty soups – it’s just too hot. All I want to eat is fresh, light salads and easy grill or no cook options. This simple chicken dish is packed with flavor from the lime, cilantro, honey, and red pepper flakes. Seriously, it’s some of the best chicken around. The yogurt and lime juice make the chicken incredibly tender and then there is the sauce. You’ll want to swim in it. Really. I could eat it in anything.

Curious about the salad? It’s coming tomorrow.

Turkey Sausage, Spinach, and Egg White Wrap

Turkey Sausage, Spinach, and Egg White Wrap

I am always on the lookout for new breakfast ideas, particularly those that I can make in a matter of minutes and shove in my mouth as I run out the door. It’s not pretty, but its all too often the reality. Lately this has been one of my favorites using a simple mix of spinach, lean turkey sausage, and egg whites all wrapped up in a low carb wrap with a touch of my favorite chipotle salsa. Make it your own by adding your favorite veggies or cheese.

Celeriac Fries (Low Carb)

Celeriac Fries (Low Carb)

There are certain foods that I don’t miss when I am eating healthy. Unfortunately french fries aren’t one of them. Usually when the craving strikes I reach for these baked chili cheese fries or some baked sweet potatoes fries. However when I am trying to lower my carb intake or pairing my “fries” with something more caloric, these celeriac fries are a great alternative. Made from celery root, they are low in carbs and calories and pack a flavor punch. The flavor isn’t quite like celery in case your wondering, it’s a bit more earthy. Paired with salt, pepper, and/or your favorite spices and you have a winner. My manfriend ate a whole bowl full before even pausing to ask what they were. Pretty good indicator that they taste great in my world.

Green Chile Turkey Burgers

Green Chile Turkey Burgers

Even though summer is coming to a close, I still plan to use my grill as much as possible in the upcoming weeks and this Green Chile Turkey Burgers is the perfect excuse to get out and grill. With green chiles in the burger as well as on top, the patty is slightly spicy and packed with flavor. My favorite way to serve it wrapped up in Bibb lettuce leaves and then top it with pickled red onions, melted mozzarella cheese, and some avocado slices. These burgers also work great as sliders and will jump off the table during football games or weekend gatherings.
