Healthy Recipe Post

Hello and good morning cupcakes!

I thought it was probably time for a post about some healthy recipes! Here are some of my new favorites:


-3 avocados; halved
-shredded chicken breast (3 breasts)
-1 T cilantro
-1 tsp. chili powder
-1 T lime juice
Directions:Stir chicken, chili powder, and cilantro together in a bowl. Arrange avocado halves on a serving dish and drizzle with lime juice. Spoon chicken mixture onto avocados. Pretty simple!

#2 Brown rice flour pizza 
Simple Gluten Free Rice Flour Pizza Dough
1 cup brown rice flour
2 eggs
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp ground flax seeds
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
pinch of sea salt
minced garlic
additional olive oil (for brushing)
  1. In a food processor, blend eggs, rice flour, baking powder, flax seeds, olive oil, sea salt, oregano, and basil until a soft dough forms.
  2. Roll out your dough between two pieces of parchment paper, or on a
  3. silicon non-stick baking mat under parchment paper. Note that it will be VERY sticky.
  4. Parbake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes.
  5. Brush parbaked crust with a little olive oil and minced garlic, then add sauce and other toppings of your choice.
  6. Increase heat to 400 degrees and cook another 12 minutes, until tops are nicely browned.

#3 Clean Turkey Meatloaf
  • 2.5 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 4 Egg whites
  • 1.5-2 cups fresh salsa 
  • 4 Cups fresh spinach, chopped
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. I started with all the meat and egg whites and kept adding the salsa and mixing until I got a consistency that looked like it would hold together. Then I folded in the chopped spinach. You can put in as much or as little as you like. I found its a great way to add in a few more veggies and it certainly looks prettier – and who doesn’t like their food to look as good as it tastes?
#4 Chocolate Muffins
  1. Ingredients:
  2. 1 cup raw cane sugar *- I use less maybe 1/2 c. 
  3. 1-1/2 cup pumpkin puree (or mashed banana or applesauce)
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 1-1/2 teaspoons oil
  6. 1 cup brown rice flour
  7. 2 Tablespoons ground chia seed or flaxseed meal
  8. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  9. 3 teaspoons baking powder
  10. 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  11. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  12. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  13. 2/3 cup chocolate chips (dairy free)
  14. Ingredients:
  15. Preheat oven to 350˚ F and line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  16. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and oil until combined.
  17. In a large bowl, whisk together rice flour, chia meal, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  18. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. Add in the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  19. Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups (the muffin cups will be full). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. These taste better once they have completely cooled. Enjoy!
