There is also more protein and fat in these real food flours which will fuel your day and keep you going without the mid morning energy crash.

16 Real Healthy Plantain Chips Before I started eating only real wholesome and unprocessed foods I used to occasionally snack on a salty bag of fried plantain chips. You know the ones — fried in vegetable oil and doused in salt and preservatives. Not what you’d call very healthy although quite tasty. These days I do not eat packaged snack as a part of my commitment to eat only real food in 2013. So when I walked past a pile of plantains at the market I had the bright idea to create my own crunchy snack baked and not fried. This recipe is sooooo simple and the result is a delicious sinfully crunchy snack. Here’s what you need:  2 large unripe plantains  olive oil  juice from 1/2 a lemon  freshly ground sea salt 1. Preheat the oven to 180 degress C. Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets with olive oil. 2. Peel the plantains and slice thinly on a diagonal. In a medium bowl toss the plantains with some olive oil the juice from 1/2 a lemon and a generous sprinkle of salt. 3. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Often mistaken for a grain quinoa is actually a protein-packed seed. It’s gluten free yay and is a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids. It is also filled with magnesium and fiber as if the other benefits weren’t enough to convince us. The one drawback to this amazing food is the carbohydrate volume. While it is lower than rice or other traditional grains it is high enough that you’ll want to limit the amount you eat. Of course the kids need plenty of carbohydrates to support their active growing bodies Most quinoa recipes are savory so this minty fruity salad is a refreshing twist on the nutritious-packed superfood. Here’s what you need for 6 servings:  3/4 cup plain greek yogurt  2 Tablespoons lime juice divided  1-15 fresh mint leaves minced  2 cups cooked quinoa  dash of salt and pepper  1 cup blueberries

My first goal is that the finished product be juicy and not dry. There’s nothing worse than trying to choke down dry chicken. This recipe calls for brining the chicken breast in a bag of water and spices which locks moisture deep in the meat. I mention below to keep your grill closed while cooking this also helps create a juicy piece of meat. My second goal is that the finished product be filled with rich flavor. Bland chicken ranks right up there with dry chicken on the list of things I’d rather not eat. The spice rub in this recipe coats the chicken in savory flavor and the Moroccan herb dressing adds another dimension. Even though the ingredient list is long if you look closely you’ll see that it’s mainly a bunch of spices the whole process is quick and painless. Just remember to start your brining 2 hours before dinner the rest comes together very quickly. Here’s what you need:

For the Brining: Place all of the brining ingredients into a gallon-sized Ziplock bag. Add the chicken breasts. Place in the fridge for 2 full hours. 2.

34 Macnut-Crusted Pesto-Stuffed Chicken with Acorn Squash One look at this chicken dish and you can see that it’s something special. It all started when I found a large bunch of fresh basil and had a hankering for pesto….then entered a bag of macadamia nuts and some free-range chicken tenders. I wasn’t really sure where this dish was going to lead but I’m glad that I took the time to find out. It ended up being one of the most delicious dinners ever. This recipe has a few extra steps due to the stuffing and crusting but it’s well worth the effort when you’re biting into the tender flavorful result of your efforts.

Roll the tender up and place seam side down in the prepared baking pan leaving space between each chicken roll. 6. In a small saucepan combine the mustard olive oil syrup and paprika over low heat.

And to top it off beans are high in carbohydrates. Beans also known as legumes are promoted as a healthy food because of their fiber vitamins and minerals and “high” protein content. In fact beans aren’t a dense protein source since most contain 2-3 times as many carbs as protein. When compared to vegetables and fruits beans are lacking in both fiber and micronutrient density. This dish is easy to put together just make sure that you afford yourself the 1.5 hours of simmer time. Here’s what you need:  3 purple sweet potatoes  2 Tablespoons olive oil  3 cloves garlic minced  3 bell peppers red orange and yellow chopped  1 yellow onion chopped  1.5 pounds ground pork sausage or your ground meat of choice  1 Tablespoon chilli powder  1/2 teaspoon allspice  1 Tablespoon sweet paprika  pinch of cloves  1 1/2 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon  2 teaspoons cumin  1/2 teaspoon sea salt  2 15oz cans organic tomato sauce  1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar  1/2 cup filtered water  1 avocado

Add garlic bell peppers and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes until tender. 3. Add the pork and chili powder and cook until the meat is no longer pink. 4. Add the rest of the spices tomato sauce vinegar and water. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 1 1/2 hours. 5. To serve: Slice open a piece of sweet potato and top with a big scoop of chili and avocado slices. Season the avocado with lemon juice cumin sweet paprika and sea salt.

44 Whole Roasted Chicken and Veggies One of the most satisfying things to make for dinner is a whole roasted organic chicken flanked with organic herb-coated veggies. It looks super impressive without being difficult at all to make. And best of all it only takes very little actual prep time. This is the recipe that I use for my Sunday roasted chicken. Serve with a fresh loaf of almond bread. Divine Here’s what you need:  3 bulbs garlic  1/4 cup olive oil  salt and pepper  4 Tablespoons coconut oil gently melted  1 Tablespoon each minced fresh rosemary oregano tarragon  1 teaspoon minced garlic  zest and juice from one lemon  4 large organic carrots cut into 1 inch pieces  3 organic zucchini cut into 1 inch half- moons  1 cup pearl onions ends trimmed

slide 46:

 1 cup Brussels sprouts halved  1 hormone-free organic chicken  2 cups chicken broth  1 Tablespoon coconut flour 1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. 2. Cut off the tips of each section of the garlic bulbs. Place the blubs in a small glass pan. Brush the tops with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and set aside. 3. In a small bowl combine the melted coconut oil fresh herbs minced garlic lemon zest and lemon juice. Set 1/3 of the mixture aside for the veggies. 4. In a large bowl combine the carrots zucchini pearl onions and Brussels sprouts with 1/3 of the herb mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. 5. Rinse your chicken and pat dry. Carefully slide your hand between the skin and the breast and liberally rub some of the herb mixture. Rub the rest of the herb mixture over the top of the chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and tie the legs together with kitchen string. Place the chicken on a large roasting pan and surround it with the veggies. 45 6. Roast the chicken and veggies for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 180 degress C pour 1/2 cup of chicken broth over the chicken and veggies and place the garlic pan in the oven off to the side. 7. For the next 90 minutes pour 1/2 cup of broth over the chicken and veggies every 30 minutes as it cooks at 180 degress C. 8. To see if the chicken is done poke the tip of a sharp knife between the leg and body and see that the juices run clear. Transfer the chicken and veggies to a large platter. Add a couple of the roasted garlic bulbs to the chicken platter reserving one for the gravy. 9. To make gravy: Pour all of the roasting pan juices into a pan and bring to a simmer. Remove the garlic cloves from one of the roasted blubs and smash with a fork. Add garlic to pan. Mix in the tablespoon of coconut flour and whisk the gravy as it simmers. Cook for 10 minutes or until desired thickness. Season with salt and pepper. 5 Servings Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 251 calories 14g fat 113mg sodium 19g carbohydrate 7g fiber and 17g protein

Not exactly healthy. What I love about this casserole is that the ricotta cheese gives you the creamy cauliflower experience while also sneaking in kale — which is high in calcium and has loads of vitamins — and some chicken sausage for protein. This nutritional jackpot takes home cooked comfort food to a real healthy place. Here’s what you need for 6 servings:  1 teaspoon olive oil  1 yellow onion diced  2 garlic cloves minced  3 cups kale chopped  dash of salt and pepper  Pinch of each dried: thyme rosemary tarragon and parsley  4 links nitrate-free chicken sausage sliced into half moons  1 head cauliflower cut into small florets  1/2 cup chicken broth  1 teaspoon lemon juice  1 cup fat free ricotta cheese  1/2 cup Parmesan cheese shredded and divided

Cover for about 3 minutes until kale gets bright green and wilted then remove cover. Saute for an additional 3 minutes until everything is tender. Set aside. 3.
