Buffalo Turkey (or Chickpea Tacos)

I love tacos! I mean who doesn’t?

Our fam could easily have this as a dinner one night per week but to avoid food ruts and boredom I am always on the look out to change up this basic recipe. Last week I posted a new Peanut Taco Recipe in a Lettuce Wrap and this just sparked more inspiration for more taco creations. This week I want to share my new Buffalo Turkey Tacos which again I am serving on a lettuce wrap for myself. As most of you know I am running a 30 day clean eating challenge and we aim to avoid gluten and dairy among other things, and lettuce wraps are a really simple and healthy alternative to wraps. This is one of my favourite recipe for a night where I am craving something a little less “healthy” and a little more fun or daring.

Lunches On the Go!

Recently I polled my socials to ask you guys what meal you struggle the most with: breakfast, lunches, dinner or snacks….truth be told you said all of them so over the next few blogs I will be answering questions and sharing some info to help reduce the struggle.

I am going to share 5 easy lunch recipes that are delicious and will keep you filled to crush your day. But before we jump into that I want to share why most people struggle with lunches on the go - the main reason time and time again is they fail to plan and prep their meals ahead of time. I totally get it, we all have full schedules and in no way am I saying it’s always “easy”, I just want to share tips that have worked for me so that I can stay nourished even on those busy days.

Chicken Detox Stew

Spring is in the air and that vibe always brings about a good Spring cleaning in our home. Along with cleaning out the house I do love a good real food reset to help facilitate a detox within our bodies.

People often think a detox means picking up a detox pill package or a special tea. A healthy detox is all about resetting, resting and nourishing the body from the inside out. At the same time eliminating any toxins or foods that can hinder the body’s natural detoxification process.

It’s about adding in foods that nourish our body and our cells. In this recipe, broccoli works to help detoxify the body it has a high amount of fiber, which allows you to feel full and it also works to keep your blood sugar low and balance between meals. This super veg also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients, which improves the detox process in your body and helps to eliminate other toxins.

I am working on putting together a 7-21 day real food reset detox program that will be coming out at the end of the month so if you feel like you could use a reset keep an eye out for it.

This is one of the recipes that will be in the program, it’s quick and easy to make and feels like comfort food warming you from the inside out. A perfect dish to add into your Sunday meal prep, we like to individually portion in containers for a delish grab and go lunch.

Chocolate Fudge Protein Energy Bars

This week I was really craving some creative time in the kitchen. Life has been busy, my prep game had been slacking, and it was starting to show in our household. When we don’t prep we end up making poor food choices and grabbing more take-out or convenience food.

So Thursday night while my hubby was working late, the kids and I had some fun together in the kitchen. The kids helped to make dinner and a few batches of energy balls while I got inspired to make this protein energy bar recipe. You will notice a lot of the balls and bars are similar and this is on purpose. Keeping it simple and slightly adding in your own favourite variation. The chocolate fudge frosting makes this a total crowd pleaser. From the feedback on Instagram you all agree and asked for the recipe so here it is.

I hope you enjoy these bars as much as our family did.
