More Healthy Recipes

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

This is my third blog about healthy recipes. Basically I was part of a challenge in one of my Spark Teams where we'd take clean recipes, make them, take a pic, review and post the link to the recipes to give credit and to allow others to try it. I loved doing it so much that I branched out and started blogging on my own. Last night I made two more recipes and this time they were from SparkPeople. One from a SparkFriend and the other from SparkRecipes. I know the recipes are pretty healthy but I wasn't sure all my ingredients were perfectly "clean" so I left that out of my title so I wasn't misleading. You certainly could but with my shredded turkey I'm thinking it was just regular from Aldi's and not organic or anything like that. Note: I do try to eat as clean as possible.


I have been saving and pinning quiche recipes for I don't even know how long yet have never ever made one..until last night. And now I wonder why not? I had this image in my head that it'd be difficult which goes to show you shouldn't make assumptions. Not only was it easy but it'd be super versitile. Mine was a mushroom/spinach feta quiche but really I could add any veggies I wanted to it. It did call for skim milk and sour cream but I used greek yogurt as a sub for sour cream and almond milk as a sub for skim. I did not use parm cheese nor did I have crust. It tasted great although I think I'd prefer crust so today I researched cauliflower crust for quiche and I was able to find one ofthehearth.com/cauliflo
that looks pretty simple so next time I'll be testing that as well:)

Here is the SparkRecipe link to the quiche I made if you are interested:) recipes.sparkpeople.com/


I love meatloaf but I won't eat certain things anymore that are ingredients so I've gone without. But I was scrolling through some blogs yesterday and found a recipes for veggie stuffed meatloaf. It's pretty much veggies and meat and that's it. Now to be fair I didn't have enough meant (it called for 20 oz and I only had 16) and I added more veggies than what it called for and used a Ninja food processor but the attachemtn that pretty much turned it into a guacomole mixture. So too many mooshed up veggies and not enough meat. I added jalapenos for one..yum! So my concoction was runny to say the least even though I baked it a little over the time asked for. I had to add salsa and ketchup for flavor.

Fast forward to today and my leftover meatloaf was much better. It was sturdier and did not need as much stuff to flavor it. I actually just put a little mustard on it and it tasted great. In a previous clean eating blog I made raw honey mustard dressing and I still have some so I'm going to try that out tomorrow when I have another piece.

I will be making this again but will try to follow her directions better:)

    I've been wanting a quiche but don't eat flour any more so I'm interested in how the cauliflower crust turns out for you. I had read about them once before, but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder.
