Chicken Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

We love recipes where you get to “stuff” something. They are just so much more fun to eat; for both kids and adults alike! Not only are recipes like this easy to make, but they are also a great way to sneak in extra nutrients.

Our Chicken Black Bean Bowl comes ready with tender chicken, high-fiber black beans and rice, and lots of Mexican flavors. Serving them atop a sweet potato helps amplify the nutrition by serving up vitamins such as A and C, which are essential in keeping our immune systems strong. And who doesn’t want a healthy immune system during the winter? Being sick is just no fun!

Sweet potatoes are also very cheap, so you can create this well-rounded meal for 2 for less than $3.00 per serving! You can prepare the potatoes in advance to make the meal come together even quicker, too! And let’s not forget about meal prep. You can very easily prepare this recipe in advance and pack it for lunch during the work or school day.

But, the topping combos don’t need to end with our Chicken Black Bean Bowl! You could also use our Steak Black Bean Bowl as we did in this recipe here. Or give your potatoes a breakfast twist by using one of our Breakfast Scramble Bowls. Brinner is one of our favorite things to serve up around here!

So, now the real question is, “Dinner or breakfast”? Which would you rather make this for?

The Ultimate Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash

The ultimate breakfast stuffed acorn squash makes a great breakfast, lunch or dinner! Fluffy egg whites, hearty turkey sausage, oven-roasted organic potatoes, Monterey Jack, and cheddar cheeses, all stuffed in a roasted acorn squash- makes for easy meal prep.

‘Tis the season for all things squash! Each year we like to create a new fall-inspired squash recipe. They may be similar in that they are almost always a stuffed squash. However, some are breakfast inspired, and others are lunch/dinner inspired. Truth be told, this recipe would work for any meal of the day! The other great thing about stuffed squash recipes is that they work well for meal prep. One for dinner, one to pack up for the next day. It’s such a win!

So, if you’re a fan of cozy fall recipes, then it’s time for you to get in the kitchen and start cooking! We used our Turkey Sausage Scramble Bowl in this recipe, but our Bacon Scramble Bowl or even our vegetarian Southwestern Scramble Bowl would be just as delicious!

All you need are three main ingredients; squash, a scramble bowl, and cheese to make this. It really doesn’t get any easier. Then the oven does the rest of the work!

We serve this for breakfast with fresh fruit, lunch with a side salad, or even for dinner. If we are making this into a full meal, we will usually use 1 large squash instead of two small ones and enjoy a large half. This recipe is also perfect for a holiday side dish. Use either baby acorn squash or use small ones and cut them in half to create the side.

They pair wonderfully with sliced turkey breast, cranberry sauce, and some roasted fall vegetables such as Brussel sprouts or carrots. Who knew a breakfast scramble bowl could be so versatile?

Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty Tacos

These Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty tacos are loaded with flavor and light on calories. 

Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty Tacos

Unapologetically just made the best healthy egg white breakfast tacos you will ever see. Yes, we said breakfast tacos! However, these simple, high-protein tacos would be great for lunch or dinner, too!

We lightened up this recipe by using our low-calorie egg white patties. Each patty contains only 35 calories, but a whopping 6g of protein. This makes the egg white patties a great way to add volume to your usual breakfast taco without a lot of calories.

The game-changer in this recipe is the southwestern chipotle seasoning that makes the egg white patties feel like an authentic Mexican ingredient. It’s kind of like adding taco seasoning to your ground beef when making traditional tacos, but much better!

You could opt to go with more traditional toppings like shredded cheese, tomato, and lettuce. But, we wanted to add a fresh burst of flavor with the cilantro-lime sour cream! The sour cream really takes these to a whole new level!

The fun never ends!

The best part is that the southwestern chipotle seasoning and the cilantro-lime sour cream make a lot of extra, so you can enjoy this recipe on repeat! If you are serving these for a big party, both ingredients should be plenty to go around!

Are you ready to get cooking and enjoy #TacoTuesday with us every day of the week?

How To Make A High Protein Turkey Club

Ever wonder how to make a high protein turkey club? These easy turkey clubs are low carb, gluten free, and keto friendly. Swap the bread for lettuce and add in egg white patties for an extra boost of protein. 

How To Make A High Protein Turkey Club

Nothing beats a thick, ‘can’t wrap your mouth around it’ turkey club. However, sometimes, all those layers of bread start to feel too heavy in the summer heat. So, we decided to jump on the lettuce wrap trend that we have seen around social media. Our version is the next level, though.

We took the standard one or two layers of lettuce and use a half a small head as the buns. Next, we added our egg white patties to amp up the protein. Sliced turkey breast + egg white patties = ~24g of protein, which is the recommended amount per meal.

Then we added in the traditional items like tomato and bacon. Lastly, we finished it off with an amount of guacamole that will send you to the moon and back. Just kidding, but it is guaranteed to keep you satisfied for hours! When you skip out on the carbs, it is essential to make sure that you have extra fat to keep you satiated. We wish we could say that protein alone would be enough to sustain you, but unfortunately, it’s not. The fat + protein combination is the key to low carb staying power.

If you aren’t following a keto or low carb diet, pair this with some fresh fruit, heck, or even some chips! After all, life is all about balance, right?

How To Make A High Protein Turkey Club Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, cut in half again
  • 2 pieces of bacon, cooked
  • 2 slices fresh tomato
  • 1 egg white patty, cooked according to package directions
  • 1/4 cup guacamole (or freshly mashed avocado)
  • 2-3 ounces sliced turkey breast

Bacon Scramble Frittata

We can’t remember the last time we made a frittata. Crazy given that we are pretty much always living our best breakfast life. But, some days we want to take our traditional desk breakfast and elevate it a few notches. That’s when this Bacon Scramble Frittata comes into play.

Not only does this delicious breakfast recipe allow us to enjoy one of our favorite breakfast bowls in a new way, but it also lets us meal prep enough to last us several days. It looks like we won’t have to worry about what to eat when we are running out the door next week!

This easy recipe requires a little mixing and then into the oven it goes. While the cooking is taking care of itself, you can prepare other items to serve with this or kick back and grab 15 minutes of much needed relaxation. We will let you make the call there.

Three ingredients are all it takes for this recipe. Our Uncured Bacon & Egg Scramble Bowl has all the extra flavor you need. It is filled with organic russet potatoes, and white cheddar cheese that ensure this simple frittata will keep you satisfied.

But, the options don’t stop with just our Uncured Bacon & Egg Scramble Bowl. This recipe would also be just as delicious with either our Turkey Sausage Scramble Bowl or for our vegetarian friends, our Southwestern Scramble Bowl. if you’re feeling adventurous, a nice dollop of fresh guacamole is a nice finishing touch to any of these flavor combinations.

Lastly, you can opt to serve this warm or chilled. We find it very enjoyable, chilled on a hot summers day.

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes are a fiesta of flavors! Filled with egg whites, tangy salsa, black beans and a pinch of chili powder. These low carb, gluten free tomatoes are delicious for breakfast or lunch. 

Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes

These Southwestern Stuffed Breakfast Tomatoes are lovely for breakfast, brunch, or even a light lunch. They are tasty, healthy, and stunning. And, who doesn’t love to eat pretty food?

We especially love this recipe in the summertime when the fresh garden tomatoes are firm, ripe and bursting with sweet tomato flavor. There is just something about the natural sweetness when combined with the salty flavors in our Southwestern Scramble Bowl that makes this recipe to die for!

If you have ever had baked or broiled tomatoes, then this is a must try recipe! Now, we know not everyone loves the texture of cooked tomatoes, so if that is the case, you can always serve these in a raw tomato. Just make sure to cook the scramble bowl thoroughly and top with grated parmesan cheese, instead.

Cooked tomatoes are also thought to be very healthy – perhaps even healthier than raw tomatoes. Cooking seems to concentrate the levels of the antioxidant lycopene in tomatoes.

If you are serving these for breakfast or brunch, we recommend serving them with a slice or two or toast and fresh fruit. If you are trying to stick to a low carb diet, then a crisp garden salad is also a nice pairing.

Lastly, if you are into meal prepping, these will store in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. You can pair them with some oven roasted potatoes and fresh fruit for a grab ‘n go breakfast for work!
