Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Crispy Beef and Bean Tacos

Crispy Beef and Bean Tacos

These were a throw together recipe. I had no clue what was going to be for dinner this night. I opened my fridge found some leftover ground beef, an opened can of refried beans, half an onion and a few other ingredients that I always 

BBQ Peach Crockpot Chicken

BBQ Peach Crockpot Chicken

This was a dish that was a grab what you have and hopefully it turns our good dish!

This came out AMAZING! It was extremely easy to put together and the flavors was a sweet, savory with a little spice.

Serve over rice or with a bunch of sides like I did. I roasted a small squash, made a quick broccoli slaw with a side of steam in bag broccoli as well.

Made great for meal prep for the week as well.

 

Here is what you will need:

  • Crockpot
  • Chicken (Fresh or frozen)
  • BBQ sauce (I used sugar free)
  • No sugar added canned peaches or fresh
  • Red onions
  • Banana peppers
  • Dak’s BBQueen seasoning (optional)
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Garlic

Here is the crockpot I just recently purchase off of Amazon. It is great and has a delayed cooking option. Order HERE if interested. 

Here is the frozen chicken that I buy from Costco. It is the best price and the chicken is great.

You can use whatever BBQ sauce you’d like but I prefer to use this sugar free one from G Hughes

 

The convenience of the no sugar added peaches is great. You can use fresh but I do recommend peeling them prior to adding to the crockpot

This was a last minute decision adding the hot peppers and I’m glad I did. Broke up the sweetness from the BBQ sauce and the peaches.

I was originally going to use regular white onions but didn’t have enough so I went with the red onions. I like the color added into the dish as well.

Here is how to make it:

  1. Add the fresh or frozen chicken to the crockpot
  2. Spray lightly with avocado oil
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste
  4. Add the garlic powder and BBQueen seasoning over the chicken
  5. Pour the BBQ sauce, peaches, onions, banana peppers and banana pepper juice over the chicken
  6. Set the crockpot to low for 6 hours
  7. Once done, either keep whole or shred
  8. Enjoy with your choice of sides

Easy Chicken Quesadilla

Easy Chicken Quesadilla

A popular dish that many like to order at a restaurant is the Quesadilla. Typically, a restaurant quesadilla is LOADED with calories when you’d think it’s a little “Healthier” right? Well, if you were to go to Apple Bee’s or TGI Friday’s and order the 

KFC Bowl

KFC Bowl

KFC Bowl! Have you ever heard of the KFC bowl? Well, when I was younger this was the best thing since sliced bread. It has mashed potatoes, gravy, shredded cheese, corn and fried chicken. The entire SMALL bowl is 720 calories. It is 20-22 WW 

Salmon Quinoa Bowl

Salmon Quinoa Bowl

This delicious fall quinoa salmon bowl was inspired by my favorite restaurant Tavern In The Square. 

Me, my husband and our kids decided to try Tavern In The Square restaurant out one day and I FELL IN LOVE with the quinoa bowl I ordered so I needed to recreate it. It was pretty close but not perfect like the one I ordered.

Here is my take on the bowl.

What you will need:

  • Quinoa
  • Chicken broth
  • Fresh green beans
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Turmeric
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Beets
  • Sizzle Fish Salmon or salmon of choice
  • Dak’s Green Zest
  • Salt & pepper
  • Goat cheese
  • Dressing of choice

The salmon that I get is from Sizzle Fish and it is OUTSTANDING quality. You can certainly use salmon from wherever you’d like but I highly suggest trying Sizzle Fish out.

Dak’s Spices are the only spices I keep in my house for prepare seasonings. They are salt free and so delicious. If you ever want to try Dak’s Spices use code CHEFALLIE at Daksspices.com

You can get quinoa anywhere you’d like; I tend to buy most of our groceries at ALDI since they are very inexpensive.

This was such a fun and delicious way to prepare the cauliflower for this bowl. You only need to get some raw uncooked cauliflower, turmeric, lemon pepper seasoning, apple cider vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. The coloring after it is mixed is so different yet so good!

Basic fresh green beans and carrots for this dish. The carrots you will be peeling into strips/ribbons

Easy way to make this bowl come together in less than 30 minutes is getting the steam in bag veggies.

Another ALDI fins for less money than other grocery stores. I love goat cheese it is so creamy!

The dressing is really up to you and what you would like to drizzle over the top. I really liked this dressing from Trader Joe’s. It gave some good flavoring with some heat.

 

How to make this bowl:

  1. Set oven to 425
  2. Cut the cauliflower into bite size pieces
  3. Place the cauliflower into a bowl and season with the turmeric, lemon pepper, salt and pepper to taste
  4. Drizzle some apple cider vinegar over the top and shake up until all coated. Place into the fridge until ready to use
  5. Smear Dijon mustard, salt, pepper and Dak’s Green zest seasoning over the top of the salmon and the sides
  6. Place the salmon on a parchment lined sheet pan and cook for about 10 minutes or until it internally reads 120-125 (set aside to cool)
  7. While the salmon is cooling assemble your salad
  8. On the bottom of the bowl add your greens followed with the remaining toppings and dressing

Caulichos aka Cauliflower Nachos

I personally LOVE cauliflower and what better way to enjoy it! I love cauliflower nachos aka Caulichos. They can be made any way you would like and with whatever toppings you would like as well.  Nachos are also a great way to use up leftovers 

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Ice Cream

When I think of chocolate strawberries it makes me smile. I absolutely love them, but I do not like all of the calories and points for WW they bring along with it. I decided to make another protein ice cream to taste close to a 

Yogurt Bowl

Yogurt Bowl

My yogurt bowls have been my absolute favorite since the beginning of my journey.

I eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and mostly at the end of the night for dessert. 

They do not taste like they are healthy for you; they taste like a dessert.

My yogurt bowls are PACKED with protein from the yogurt all the way to the nut butters I use. You can certainly meal prep these ahead of time as well for quick morning grab and go meals.

Here is what you will need:

  • Nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Simply Delish instant pudding mixes of sugar free instant pudding
  • Unsweetened almond milk (optional)
  • My mixed berry sauce or blueberry sauce (recipe on my blog)
  • Healthy Eating On The Go Bars 
  • Fat free reddi whip
  • Nut butter of your choice

Nonfat Greek yogurt has a lot of protein in it with 18g per serving with the Costco organic Greek yogurt I use and the Sam’s Club nonfat Greek yogurt. I also use Aldi brand as well. 

Simply Delish is one of my favorite instant pudding mixes I like to use. With only 20 calories per serving, keto friendly, vegan and sugar free. I don’t even use the full serving for my yogurt bowls as well. 

My Mixed Berry Sauce and my Blueberry sauce is a SERIOUS game changer in my yogurt bowls. They bring so much flavor to the bowls and just overall delicious. The recipe for my Blueberry sauce is here and to make the mixed berry sauce just sub the blueberries for mixed berries. Below are the berries I use from Aldi.

These are the mixed frozen berries I buy from Aldi. Not only are they super inexpensive, but they are also super convenient when it comes to making the sauce. 

Healthy Eating On The Go bars have also been on my weight loss journey for years as well. They are insanely delicious and have so many clean and amazing ingredients in them. Packed with protein as well and highly recommended. If you ever would like to try them use my code:chefallie HERE

You can certainly use any kind of whipped cream you’d like but I love the fat free reddi whip. 

Again, with the nut butters, you can use any kind you like. I love the American Dream Nut Butter Breanne’s Blend Cookie Batter and many more from them.  I also LOVE the Nerdy Nuts nut butters as well. Also, if you’d like to try any of the nut butters from Nerdy Nuts, please use code:CHEFALLIE for a discount at Nerdy Nuts

Here is how to make it:

  1. First get a bowl and place the yogurt in
  2. Take about 1 teaspoon of the instant pudding mix and mix until combine
  3. If the yogurt mixture is too thick, add a few splashes of the unsweetened almond milk to loosen it up
  4. Add the mixed berry sauce and the Healthy Eating On The Go protein bar until combine
  5. Top with the fat free reddi whip and any nut butter
  6. Enjoy
