Fried Ground Turkey & Rice Burritos

Fried Burritos: A Surprisingly Heart-Healthy Dinner Option   My family loves Mexican food and although I'm not a huge fan of fried foods, they absolutely love fried foods of any kind, including burritos. Since I try to keep things on the healthy side and completely low sodium, I have perfected my recipe for fried burritos to satisfy their love of fried and spicy foods and combine it with my love of only serving them heart-healthy dishes. The coolest thing about this recipe is that the filling I use for this flavorful dish is also the same one I use for stuffed peppers and party dips, so making a big batch that you can freeze for later is an added bonus!

Crock Pot Chili: Perfect for Game Day {Low Sodium Recipe}

Crock Pot Chili. Quite possibly the perfect game day food. Perfect for so many reasons. Easy to make. Perfect for fall. Delicious to eat. Lasts all day long. And hello, bring on the heat, just like the games (that I don't care to watch). My oldest daughter says I make the best.chili.ever! OK, I'm sure that's not true, but I take that compliment and run with it. Since I made game day chili (low sodium style of course) on Sunday, I decided to share my recipe here. As always, the perfect recipe always starts with the freshest ingredients. Canned tomatoes are SO overrated. Fresh is best and getting those fresh veggies into your babies' bodies is a bonus point for this recipe.

Easy Lower Sodium Chicken Pot Pie

I know I'm always preaching about low sodium eating, but some of my recipes are pretty time intensive. Even though I work from home, I don't always have the time to make all of our meals from scratch. On those busy days, that's when semi-homemade recipes like this easy low sodium Chicken Pot Pie come in handy. It's not the prettiest dish on the planet by any means, but my family loves it. The typical frozen chicken pot pie, even most recipes you'll see, house 580+ mg of sodium. This recipe is only 131 mg of sodium per serving and super simple to make. Low Sodium Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients: 2 medium sized chicken breasts 1 can 25% Less Sodium Campbell's Cream of Mushroom or Chicken Soup 1 can No Salt Added Veg-All 2 frozen pie crusts Preparation and Cooking Instructions: Thaw your pie crust for about an hour so that you can work with it.

Crock Pot Brisket, Low Sodium Style

This post may contain affiliate links to products I used to create this recipe. Hey, a girl's gotta make a living you know. Our recent move has required me to get creative in the kitchen since our gas still isn't turned on. Either I use the microwave (gross), we grill, or I use my Crock Pot. The end. It's been raining, no flooding, here on the island so I've been turning to my Crock Pot on a regular basis. I love a good Crock Pot meal because there's not a lot of fuss, you throw everything in one pot, season, and simmer for hours while your house enjoys an amazing aroma all day long. Then voila, dinner is served. Perfect. Typically B smokes our briskets for 4 hours, not a minute more, not a minute less, at the perfect temperature (you'd have to ask him what that is though, I have no clue). But...well...rain. I had to improvise so I decided to whip up this Crock Pot Low Sodium Brisket to see how it would turn out. Brisket can be a very tough cut of meat if you don't do it right, but … [Read more...]

Gluten-Free Potato Chip Crusted Fried Fish

I might have mentioned that B's a fisherman. I might have mentioned that we try to eat low sodium. I might have mentioned that healthy eating is pretty important to me. But what I'm sure I haven't mentioned is that I've been attempting to go gluten free for awhile now. Why am I mentioning all of this? Of course I'll elaborate. I'm here to tell you, gluten-free cooking is a pain in the butt. If you've already gone gluten free, you know this. But sometimes overthinking things makes them more difficult. It doesn't have to be as difficult as it seems. So if you find yourself with an abundance of fish in the freezer, and your family loves fried foods (despite your insistence that baked is way better for them), I have a recipe you might want to try. What you'll need: 1 lb of fish fillets 1 cup ground potato chips 1 1/4 cups olive oil (1 cup for frying, 1/4 cup to soak fish) 1 cup rice flour 2 eggs, beaten Potato chips! They're naturally gluten free and they make the … [Read more...]
