100 Days of No Processed Meals - Crock Pot Style

Bread in a Mug - Oh Sweet Mercy Going gluten free means no more delicious, yeasty, bread-y bread. I’m sorry, but there just isn’t a gluten free alternative that EXACTLY matches the taste and texture of a good ole loaf of wheat bread. There are many recipes out there that come close, but that’s it. Close is not. quite. it. So, it wasn’t too hard of a transition for me going on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.

What’s your favorite smoothie recipe? White Cheese and Chicken Lasagna I’m a complete and utterly in love with all forms of lasagna. There’s just something about those layers of cheese, noodles and sauce that I can’t help but get weak in the knees over. So you probably can understand why I was instantly intrigued when I found Anna and Chelsea’s recipe for a White Cheese and Chicken Lasagna. Chicken, cheese, spinach and as if there wasn’t already an abundance of cheese here, there’s also a white cheese sauce! To make this lasagna happen, all you need is chicken (I used rotisserie chicken and it was fabulously easy), lasagna noodles, frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry), butter, milk, chicken broth, onion, garlic, flour, salt and pepper, dried oregano and basil, fresh parsley, ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Start by bringing a large pot of water to a boil. Next get some prep out of the way and chop up a medium onion, mince the garlic clove and give a small handful of parsley a good, rough chop. In a good-sized sauce pot, melt a stick of butter.

Roasting Turkey at Home For Sandwiches One of my New Year's resolutions is to always bring my lunch to work. I'm trying to save money, eat healthier, and have more time so I can go on a long walk during my workday. So far, so good! Of course now that I'm shopping at the market more often I'm trying to figure out ways to bring down costs there too. I settled on turkey and picked up a free range natural 3.75 lb. bone-in turkey breast from my butcher for $23. Besides, a sixty percent savings (3 lbs. of pre-packaged turkey meat from the same makers of the bone-in breast would cost over $50), my homemade sandwich meat tastes better than most deli meat I've tried.
