Tostado Bowl Salad

20130908-184542.jpg

Have you made baked tostada shells yet? They make delicious bowls for salads of all kinds! I made this bowl out of a high fiber flour tortilla by flipping my muffin tin upside down! I baked it in the oven till it got crispy.

This bowl was filled with mixed greens, quinoa, slow cooked pulled chicken, avocado, and sour cream. It was absolutely delicious!!!

I slow cooked my chicken in the crockpot with roasted pasilla peppers chile made by Herdez and available at your local grocery store.

Enjoy!

Fluffy Egg White Oats?

You read that right! Egg whites are now making regular appearances in my oats! I highly recommend you give this a try! It’s an excellent way to make a balanced bowl of nutrients for breakfast. Whole grain carbs, protein, and healthy fats! I’ve posted one of my recipes, I’ve tried several combos and highly encourage you to do the same! You’re going to like it! No egg-y taste!

ProOats

One of my new favorite ways to eat oatmeal?!??

Call them ProOats! Protein meets oatmeal!

Instead of sweetening my oatmeal with stevia, sugar, or honey, I’ve been stirring in anywhere between 1/2 a scoop to a whole scoop of flavored protein powder into my oats then topping off with my favorite fruits! This works well whether you make your oats on the stove, in the microwave, or overnight in the refrigerator!

I’ll be posting some of my favorite combos under my “recipes” tab VERY SOON! Keep an eye out!

Also, please share some of YOUR favorite combos with me!

Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce

I love zucchini noodles! One of the new ways I’ve been preparing them is with a creamy avocado sauce! It’s rich and so much healthier than any alfredo sauce or boring tomato sauce.

Here’s a super simple clean recipe:
1 ripe avocado
A splash of almond milk (creamier than skim milk, but skim milk also works fine!)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Minced garlic (to taste)
Juice of a lemon

Mix it all in your food processor and you’ll get a creamy delicious sauce in minutes!

Enjoy!

This is my creamy avocado zucchini noodles with ground turkey and some red pepper flakes!
