Turkey Roast

Apple and Kale Stuffed Turkey Breast

Looking for an alternative to cooking a whole turkey, try stuffing a turkey breast roast with local seasonal apples and nutrition rich kale.

Turkey is an excellent source of protein, which will help to prevent dessert induced blood-sugar crashes. Kale promotes regular digestion, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating, and the pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. So enjoy this healthy alternative with your family and friends this Thanksgiving weekend.

Chicken & Rice Soup

Leftover 15-Minute Chicken Soup Recipe

It's Fall heading into the winter season, and I am craving warmth — so that means I am eating a lot of soups and stews to keep me warm on the inside. Sometimes, when I just don’t have the time, or am looking for a quick fix, I turn to this simple, classic recipe. It just so happens that this recipe is not only tasty, but it is a perfect weight loss meal.

The fresh leafy greens provide loads of calcium, which is great for revving up your metabolism, and the chicken or turkey provides a great source of lean protein that activates glucagon, our fat burning hormone. The whole grain rice even provides B vitamins to support our hormone function.
