Baked turkey pasta (gluten free, dairy free options)

I have been on a pasta and Mac n cheese kick since I had Covid last week!

Shredded pork plate

This is a go-to because of how simple, delicious, filling and nutritious it is! You can use chicken breasts or get a pork shoulder and use a crockpot to slow cook the meat and then add whatever toppings you want.

Perfect Chicken Salad

I LOVE CHICKEN SALAD! What I don't love, however, is how unhealthy and fattening it is when you purchase conventional chicken salad that is premade and filled with artificial preservatives and ingredients that don't belong in your body.

Main Dishes, Soup

Egyptian Red Lentil Soup (primal)

I LOVE this soup so much. It's loaded with fiber from the lentils and veggies, it's filling, it's delicious, and it's inexpensive to make. I decided to add some extra protein by cutting up sausage links from Whole Foods and cooking them on the stove. The andouille sausage was a great addition to this soup.… Continue reading Egyptian Red Lentil Soup (primal)
