These green beans are a riff on a recipe my mom made for us when I was younger. Her version is simply green beans, garlic, soy sauce, and almonds, which is equally delicious. This is one of my favorite simple side dishes. Add some sriracha on top for extra zing!
There’s no reason to ever leave the house without sunscreen, as even the most minimal ultraviolet rays can cause damage, but there doesn’t need to be a one-size-fits-all solution. You wouldn’t wear the same clothes to the beach as you use to run errands, so why would you use the same sunscreen? Here are a few natural solutions to sunscreen that have got you SPF-covered for all occasions.
56 CALORIE Lean Turkey Apple & Maple Sausage Breakfast Patties
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Honeycrisp or Braeburn apple, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 pound extra lean ground turkey
1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 egg whites
1/4 cup gluten free oat flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and and garlic and cook until garlic becomes fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add in diced apples and cook a few minutes more or until apples soften. Remove from heat, transfer to a large bowl, and stir in cinnamon and nutmeg.
Add in ground turkey, maple syrup, egg whites, oat flour, and salt and pepper; mix well. Divide into 16 patties and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. Serve with extra maple syrup.
Ingredients: Four chunks each of cantaloupe and pineapple (about two inches long by one inch wide), five frozen strawberries, two tablespoons of nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt, and 1/4 cup of milk.
Method: Thaw the strawberries in cold water until they’re just a little mushy. Cut the ends off of them if you haven’t already done so. Put the strawberries, pineapple, cantaloupe, yogurt, and milk into a blender. Blend to your desired consistency, top with chia seeds, and enjoy!
