Dinner Two Ways

2013-07-14

I’m on the road to eating clean and I’m already bored.  I started the Advocare 10 cleanse and honestly, the clean eating got boring after day 2.  I knew I needed a way to spice things up but still remain in “clean eating” guidelines.  It ended up being easier than I thought.  Delicious actually.  Even better, I changed the recipe at the end to make a toddler friendly meal as well.  2 for the price of 1.  You know I love that!

Dinner for Mama:  Stuffed Peppers

This was so simple!  You’ll need:

1 lb lean ground chicken, 3 cloves chopped garlic, 1 chopped onion, 2 egg whites, 1/3 cup skim milk, parsley, garlic powder, pepper, italian seasoning

Mix all of those ingredients in a big bowl.  Really mix.  Wash your hands, remove your rings and get in there.

Now I was only making 2 peppers, so after I filled the cavity of the pepper with the chicken mixture I had a lot leftover (hence, the toddler inspired meal).  This mixture will fill 4 peppers if you choose to only do the stuffed peppers.

I placed the peppers standing upright in a baking loaf pan.  I then spooned homemade marinara all over the tops of them.

Bake @ 350 for 50 minutes.  Enjoy.

{ I did pour some extra marinara over the entire dish once it was baked and I sliced it open }

This recipe will spice up clean eating any day!  Best part?  No carbs, No cheese.  Not too shabby.

Dinner for Mini: Baby chicken meatballs

After looking at the leftover chicken mixture I decided to whip up some meatballs for the minster.  I added to the mixture 1/3 cup breadcrumbs and a healthy scoop of parmesan cheese.  Then I rolled them into little balls and placed them on a greased cookie sheet.  It was kind of difficult to roll into balls, because I didn’t use a whole lot of bread crumb to hold the mixture together.  Do your best.   Imperfection is beauty.  Even when your a meatball.

Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes.

Then pose them for your foodie photo shoot because they seriously look so delicious!   They make a great meal for toddlers as well as an adorable appetizer for any party.
