Healthier Nachos

273864583_10100220863691146_9160167558039307165_n

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with these!!! They’re so simple to put together and so filling!

You can tweak them to include your favorites but here’s how I make them.

Slice up 3 small corn tortillas into triangles (I like the Mission street taco gluten free corn tortillas).

In a skillet saute your tortillas until they start to crisp up.

Layer on a baking sheet your tortilla chips, shredded cheese, beans of your choice (I used chickpeas but black beans or pinto beans would be great), lean ground beef, turkey or chicken breast, sliced up tomatoes, shredded carrots, and shredded iceberg lettuce.

Pop into an oven at 400 degrees for 3-4 minutes until your cheese is melted and enjoy.

I sprinkled with Trader Joe’s everything but the elote seasoning but use any seasoning you like.

Do you love nachos too?!

So many people come to me thinking that they need to completely overhaul their nutrition, never get takeout again, or meal prep an entire gourmet โ€˜cleanโ€™ dinner for every night of the week. โฃ
โฃ
Reality is, the chances of that happening consistently over time are slim to none. โฃ
โฃ
What usually happens is the veggies we never prep go bad on the counter, the chicken breast gets moved to the freezer because you never cook it, and you end up with pizza on Monday night because you have no time to cook. โฃ
โฃ
Instead, I like to focus on making the transition a bit simpler. โฃ
โฃ
Think about convenient healthier options that you can grab and go in a pinch. Stock your freezer with healthy options youโ€™ll actually enjoy and take 2 minutes to prep. โฃ
โฃ
Set yourself up for success instead of having unrealistic expectations and setting yourself up for failure. โฃ
โฃ
Because letโ€™s be real, if you have to choose between pizza and chicken and broccoli, youโ€™ll probably choose the pizza every time. โฃ

Low FODMAP Butternut Chicken “Chili”

This wasn’t your traditional chili and reminded me more of a stew but it is low FODMAP friendly which essentially means perfect for a sensitive stomach!

I got the recipe from Katie Crokus here:ย https://www.instagram.com/p/CH0ypNrAsHx/
But made some changes to amounts and ingredients.
Here’s how I made it…
In a large pot on the stove sprayed with cooking spray, saute over medium heat:
200g celeryโ €
450g cubed butternut squash (I used fresh but bought a prechopped)โ €
300g diced bell peppers
Salt and 1 tsp turmeric
1 cup low sodium organic chicken broth
Once the veggies begin to soften, stir in 8.5 oz shredded rotisserie chicken, another 1 cup of chicken broth, and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning blend.
Stir in a 14.5 oz can of petite diced tomatoes.
Simmer until squash is soft, about 30 min.โ €
โ €
Remove heat and stir in:โ €
4 cups fresh baby spinachโ €
4 tbs. whipped cream cheese
โ €โ €
After doing this I let it sit on low another 30 minutes or so! It made about 4 servings and was delicious!!
Who else craves comfort foods this time of year?!

Cookie Dough Yogurt Bowl

Since cleaning up the quality of my food choices I had to say goodbye to a lot of the โ€œfunner food choicesโ€ Iโ€™d see other influencers share.

Things like light nโ€™ fit yogurt, sugar free pudding, skinny syrups etc, while they all taste great, werenโ€™t doing any favors to my health. But itโ€™s forced me to get creative and come up with improved macro friendly choices that will also fix my sweet tooth.

Enter cookie dough yogurt.

1 vanilla two good yogurt
ยผ tsp organic pure vanilla extract
10 grams of sunflower butter
10 grams of vanilla casein protein (I use a stevia sweetened brand with all approved ingredients)
ยฝ tbs. Trader Joeโ€™s unsweetened cacao chips

Mix all of your ingredients together & enjoy!

No artificial sweeteners, no chemicals or artificial colors, no inflammatory oils. Instead itโ€™s packed with hormone friendly healthy fats, and protein to keep you full and satisfied and your blood sugar stable. ๐Ÿญ

I love using it as a dip for apple slices or strawberries.

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ“
