Pureed Pizza Cauliflower Dip

As I was thinking of what my next recipe would be, for some reason I wanted it to be something to do with pizza but I wasn't sure what yet. I told Tanner to go ahead and grab some turkey pepperoni at Walmart when he went this week (which he also randomly got me flowers-THAT GUY! ha). I started thinking about whether I wanted to do a high carb pasta pizza casserole for athletes or if I wanted to do a lower carb "weight loss" cauliflower pizza type recipe. I decided for the most part, people like to see the lower macro recipes just because we all know how to eat high carb. I mean really. hahaha! That's easy. 

So, then the decision was Cauliflower and I was going to make a casserole with cauliflower and pizza. I was thinking like layers almost like a lasagna, then I think my mom was the one that mentioned maybe making a dip and I was like A-HA! YES! So unique! So, that's where the idea came from.

So, this is an incredibly low calorie pizza dip. ENJOY! 

It was legit very good and we added garlic bagel crisps with it which was super salty and the perfect combo!!! Add a diet coke to the mix and CALL ME A HAPPY CAMPER!

Chickpea Salad

This recipe is super easy and I thought I'd add it to get it on my recipe tab so people can refer back anytime! I also have realized that I had to get some variety in my life or I was going to get really bored with my food! 

One tablespoon of this is 24 cal (1.2g F/2.4g C/1g P)

If you want to put this on a sandwich, it'll be about 144cal (7.6g F/14.4g C/6g P) and then of course the macros in your bread! 

Super easy: 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 170g chickpeas 
  • 2.5 tablespoons veganaise (I got mine at walmart-you can also just do 2.5 tablespoons of greek yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon relish 
  • 1 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS: 

Put everything in a food processor, and pulse it so that it's not grinding it all but making it into a salad type consistency.

VOILA! Add to sandwich for a tasty lunch!

Single Serving Healthy Chicken Salad

I think this recipe is very classic, so it's nothing that you haven't seen before, but I think that most of the time, it's going to be something that you make in a big batch. 

I hear a lot from women that may be single or just alone that night that they don't want to cook for just one person. I've found actually this to be really easy. You don't have to always whip up a huge casserole, but just make something yummy and quick for just you. I think finding new ways to do recipes is GOLDEN in the healthy life. It gives you satiety which is the number one thing that you want to accomplish when making this a lifelong commitment! :) 

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 lb chicken breast 
  • 1 tablespoon non fat plain greek yogurt 
  • 1 celery stalk 
  • handful of shredded carrots

DIRECTIONS:

I bought a bag of celery and shredded carrots for this. Honestly, I should have just not because we had celery but I knew that it was normally in chicken salad, so I thought I would give it a whirl. It is confirmed that we still don't like it! HAHA! 

First, cook your chicken. I went ahead and cooked the entire lb so that I could have it prepped for other things. This is what I do with all of our meats. I prepare large quantities to just throw into different recipes all week. 

I took a handful, added one celery stalk and a handful of the cut up carrots! I added one tablespoon greek yogurt and mixed it all together in a bowl! I added this to a bed of lettuce, and VOILA! 

Super simple and easy for a delicious protein packed lunch! 

Macros will vary based on how much chicken used, so weigh this out before you add the greek yogurt, but most likely this will be a meal with mostly protein and minimal carb & fat.
