Two pieces chicken tenderloins, cooked
One medium sweet potato
1/4 cup canned whole kernel corn
1/4 cup black beans
Any type of barbecue sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
I cheated and did the microwave method of cooking the sweet potato. Take a fork and poke small holes in the potato. Put in the microwave for six to eight minutes, in two minute intervals until potato is soft.
In a saute pan take your beans and corn and saute in pan on medium heat until heated through and beans are beginning to sweat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place your potato on a plate, top with corn and beans, then place chicken around. Drizzle with your favorite barbecue sauce.
You are done! Simple,and healthy dish for lunch.
1 lb. package ground turkey
One large sweet potato, cut in 1/4 inch circles
Two tsp kosher salt
One tsp black pepper
Two tsp garlic powder
Two tsp smoked paprika
Two tsp soy sauce
Any type of cole slaw you like
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
Place your sweet potato disks in a preheated 400 degree oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes.
Mix ground turkey, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and soy sauce together. Make turkey patties about the size of your sweet potato disks.
Cook patties on medium heat in a skillet until meat is cooked through, around 10 to 12 minutes, flipping every four minutes.
Construct bun with two potato disks. Place mozzarella cheese on bottom disk. Place turkey burger on top of cheese. Place cole slaw and spinach, and place top bun.
There you have it! I'm finished with buns. This was a great level of flavor.
When I made my turkey burgers, I also had the opportunity to grill some pork steaks for the next night's dinner. These turned out really well, being moist and juicy. Here is what I did:
One small pork loin roast, fat trimmed, cut into steaks
Two tsp kosher salt
Two tsp black pepper
One tsp garlic powder
One tsp smoked paprika
Three tsp chipolte seasoning
|Trim all fat and skin from loin. Cut into steaks. These were almost 2 inches thick.|
|Coat pork on both sides with all seasonings.|
|Have your charcoal grill fired up, and I have a cast iron skillet on indirect heat.|
|Place pork over fire. Cook on each side for about five minutes.|
|Once they have been seared well for five minutes on each side. I placed them on the indirect skillet.|
I let the pork steaks cook for another 15 minutes in the skillet. If you do not have this, you can place in the oven for 15 minutes on 325 degrees.
|Take them from heat and let them rest for about five minutes.|
|Mine was cooked about medium.|

This is a recipe that is sort-of diet friendly and we have tried this before with great results. There are various recipes floating around on the internet, but I adjusted those I found to make it my own. This pizza was so good, I wish you could reach in your screen and take a bite. This recipe is very similar to those you find online, but I added a few tweaks. Here is what I did:
One eight ounce package cream cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 of a green bell pepper
1/2 medium red onion
1/2 cup diced mushrooms
1/4 cup spinach
|Add cream cheese to a mixing bowl.|
|Add the eggs.|
|Add the Parmesan cheese.|
|Then add the minced garlic and the garlic powder.|
|Mix in your mixer until smooth. Spread out into the bottom of a 9x13 dish.|
|Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and more garlic powder. Let cool for about ten minutes.|
|Take sauce and spread over the "crust".|
|Add your mozzarella cheese.|
|Then add the toppings of your choice. I used bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms and spinach.|
Place back in the oven and cook for another 12-15 minutes. I once again broiled mine at the last minute.
And that is it! I didn't even miss the crust. The flavor combination of the cream cheese, Parmesan, and mozzarella were awesome. The veggies on top were the icing on the "no bread" cake. Please try this sometime!
