South Beach Diet Friendly Chicken Nuggets with Almond Meal (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)

I'm not a mom who's trying to feed kids while sticking to the South Beach Diet, but if I was, I'm guessing I'd be even more excited about this way of making chicken nuggets so they're South Beach Diet friendly. The inspiration for the recipe came from my lovely friend Bonnie who adapted a recipe that used Bisquick into a South Beach approved version using almond meal or almond flour. Bonnie's having great success on South Beach, trying out a new way of cooking and eating that she says she knows she will stick to for the rest of her life, and this chicken recipe is one of her great experiments.

For real though, I have never gotten so much use out of one cookbook, not to mention I have yet to cook anything from it that I didn't adore. We can move on, but I'm serious about this book, no I'm not getting paid to say that (but if you are out there reading this ATK, lets make it happen!). Have we talked about quinoa?

I can happily eat the same thing day after day, while The Pastor scratches his head and looks for something else to eat. It was pretty clear this recipe was a keeper when he willingly ate these fritters twice in three days for lunch. Easy and quick to make, they’re perfect for using up leftover chicken but work equally well with canned chicken if that’s what you have on hand. They’re also great for that glut of zucchini I’m still getting from family and friends that garden.

It was never hard to find someone willing to share a big basket of fries with me. While there’s nothing like a deep-fried potato strip, this recipe for butternut squash fries comes pretty darn close to fry heaven, with much less fat and starch. The first time I brought a butternut squash home I stared at it for quite a while, deciding how to make the first cut.

Kale Pesto. I’ve been craving green food lately, which led me to grab a big bunch of green kale while shopping. I went searching food sites to see if there was something besides kale chips, which I’ve had and love, but I wanted something a bit more substantial – like a meal. I found inspiration while perusing kale recipes at 101 Cookbooks, and what I came up with is a creamy, lemony, green pesto, loosely based on the winter pasta recipe.

Kale must be a super food, because it’s packed with vitamins and minerals. And I love that both the lemon and kale are alkaline-producing foods, helping us to lower acidity and inflammation in our body. Here’s one chart I found that can help you find more alkaline foods.
