Do you amp up your water?
I received a recipe for Lemon Ginger Water from a favorite trainer of mine, Chalene Johnson. Thought I’d give it a whirl and it is tasty!!
If you love ginger and lemon then this will be a refreshing new way to get your hydration up!
Thanksgiving is now behind us but some things are still fresh in my mind and one of them is mashed potatoes! I make this version of potatoes on occasion throughout the year and a technique I have been using recently to cook up mashed potatoes is by STEAMING THEM!
I will never go back to boiling potatoes again!
Steaming cooks the potatoes gently and helps to keep the starch molecules from being greatly disturbed (thanks Alton Brown!).
Boiling your potatoes is a more rough approach that will knock those starch molecules around and might give you gummy, glue-y potatoes and you don’t want that!
All you need are potatoes of choice (I prefer Yukon gold or red potatoes), a steamer basket, and a pot with a lid.
The potatoes pictured are made with potatoes and butter (no milk!) and they are delicious.
Give this method a try and let me know what you think! 😀
Chili is definitely a fall comfort food and this recipe is a healthier take on traditional chili and adds a protein-packed punch with the quinoa.
The hard part will be to not go back for extra servings!
Note: If you like your chili less thick then you can halve the amount of quinoa and water called for in the recipe and the results are just as good!
This dish is a favorite “healthified” version of Fettuccine Alfredo that uses cauliflower as the base versus the normal butter and cream in the original recipe! The texture is satisfying and is a great way to get some added veggies into your day.
(Note: I did not have Fettuccine noodles so used whole wheat linguine instead). Adapted from ohsheglows.com
