Low Carb Turkey Sausage Jambalaya

Did anyone else grow up eating those boxed jambalaya mixes? The box mixes and smoked sausage have always been fairly affordable, so we ate it pretty often in my family growing up. Luckily, with this low carb turkey sausage jambalaya, I can enjoy a dish from my childhood without having so much carbohydrate and fat from the original stuff.

Cilantro Lemon Chicken with Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Didn’t have time to prep dinner early? No worries!

Bright lemon and fresh zesty cilantro give a vibrant flavor to chicken breasts. You can make the breasts whole, or cut them into pieces and serve over a salad or cauliflower rice. You could even prepare this on the grill! This meal is full of fresh summertime flavors, but best of all- it is quick, and will leave you feeling satisfied.

Loaded Baked Tomatoes

Tomatoes and I don’t really get along unless it is in a salsa form. They are just one of those things that I’m not a big fan of. That being said, I LOVED these loaded baked tomatoes. And these beauties are so easy!

This is a very unique way to use tomatoes in a dish. Being adventurous with food can be such a rewarding and fun experience. Alternatively, if you really don’t like tomatoes, you could do this with bell peppers instead. 

Grilled Chicken Salad

Sometimes it can be overwhelming to try to meal plan or think about what you should be eating for your health. You don’t need to have gourmet meals or specialty ingredients. Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple!

This grilled chicken salad is a great option to have during the summer months when the weather is nice, and it’s even a great option to have for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and summer cookouts. While this salad is made with green leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes, avocado, bell peppers, and mozzarella cheese, you can mix it up. Feel free to try spinach, romaine, chard, kale, or any other leafy greens you like.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

I love to use my slow cooker any time of year. But during the winter, I especially love it. After working all day, it is nice to soak up a few minutes of sunlight on a walk with my family before the sun sets. So having dinner ready to go in the slow cooker allows me to steal those minutes with them instead of standing in the kitchen.

One of our family favorites is Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas. It is a no muss, no fuss kind of recipe. Just pile it all into the slow cooker and go about your day…no actual cooking required.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

I hope you enjoy these chicken fajitas for a low carb, high protein slow cooker meal! What are some of your favorite slow cooker meals?

Mediterranean Mozza-Chicken

I have never been to the Mediterranean but I sure do love their foods and spices. Mediterranean cuisine generally has a focus on veggies, poultry, seafood, beans, and healthy fats. In my book, these are all good things! I made a big batch of this mediterranean mozza-chicken on Sunday evening and have been eating it for lunch all week long. Let me tell you, I’m not sick of it yet!!

finished meal

This meal is so easy to make in a bigger quantity so you can have lunches during the week. Mix up the lunch by adding different sides…use a side salad, cottage cheese, steamed sugar snap peas, carrots and hummus…the list goes on and on!  Enjoy your visit into Mediterranean cuisine! 

Cauliflower Chicken Pot Pie

Cauliflower Chicken Pot Pie

Cauliflower Chicken Pot PieIt’s getting colder outside, which means comfort food! I personally love chicken pot pies. The starchy pie crust and creamy filling can add a lot of extra calories and fat. This leaves me feeling weighed down. I stumbled onto this great cauliflower chicken pot pie recipe on Pinterest. With a few minor changes this recipe is now bariatric-friendly. These little things are delicious AND cute! Check out the recipe below to make your own cauliflower chicken pot pies.

Roasted Cornish Hen

Recipe creating can be intimidating. Especially if you have never had this particular food. That’s how I felt making roasted cornish hens. I have never had a cornish hen so my frame of reference for spices was nil. However, I must say, this recipe for roasted cornish hens was phenomenal! It will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu. Especially for you postop people whose portion is smaller— a cornish hen is much smaller than a turkey with the same kind of flair.

Roasted cornish hens cook much faster and require little attention once in the oven. Follow these easy steps…
