Apple Cinnamon Waffles

Want to start your day with something other than eggs for a change? Try this gluten free, high protein waffle recipe. These waffles are about as gourmet as it gets and you’ll never guess you’re eating healthy.

1.5 tbsp. coconut flour
1/8 cup vanilla protein powder
½ cup egg whites
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp. walnuts
2 tbsp. sugar-free maple syrup

Combine together the coconut flour, protein powder, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add the egg whites and mix until well combined. Spray a waffle maker with some non-stick cooking spray and then pour batter into maker.  

Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until finished and then top with some unsweetened applesauce along with walnuts and maple syrup. Serve immediately.

Hearty Chili

Chili is a great go-to dish that can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for when you need it. Try this recipe, which swaps out traditional fatty ground beef for some ground turkey breast instead.

6 oz. ground turkey breast
1 ½ cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup frozen kernel corn
½ cup water
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 ½ tsp. ground oregano
salt to taste
1 cup white kidney beans
1 cup red kidney beans
1 sliced onion
½ cup sliced peppers
1 cup minced tomatoes
½ cup salsa
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp. olive oil
cilantro to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil, garlic, red pepper, along with ground turkey. Add the chili powder, oregano, and salt and pepper. Once turkey is almost cooked, add in the chicken broth, kernel corn, minced tomatoes, salsa, and beans. Cover and turn down the heat to low, simmering for 15 minutes. Serve immediately topped with cilantro.

Chicken And Asparagus Casserole

If you want to look as lean as possible, this casserole is a great go-to. The asparagus will act as a diuretic in the body and help rid any excess water retention you may have. On top of that, the rice is a very dense source of carb, so will provide plenty of energy without leaving you feeling bloated.

1 cup raw uncooked brown rice
10 spears asparagus
1 large tomato, diced
½ cup salsa
12 oz. chicken breasts
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. oregano
1 minced garlic
1 diced onion

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare the rice according to package directions, stopping 5 minutes prior to being finished. Next, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat with garlic. Add chicken breast, and onions and cook until chicken is almost done.

In a large oven-safe dish, combine rice, chicken, diced tomato, salsa, oregano, and layer asparagus on top. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Turkey Meatballs

Think because you are going gluten free you can’t have meatballs? Think again. This meatball dish uses chickpeas to help add moisture to the recipe, reducing the need for gluten containing breadcrumbs. Serve these meatballs with some home made tomato sauce if desired.

400 grams extra lean ground turkey breast
1/3 cup chopped parsley
½ tablespoon pepper
1 cup chickpeas
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp. dried onion flakes
½ cup egg substitute or eggs.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Next, spray a cookie tray or jelly roll pan lightly with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, parsley, pepper, pureed chickpeas, and egg substitute. Roll the ground turkey mixture into small meatballs and place on prepared pan.

Bake meatballs in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes or till no longer pink inside. Meat should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Serve with brown rice (or side dish of choice).

Turkey Apple Salad

This turkey apple salad brings a hint of sweetness to your day while still ensuring you get a nice blend of carbs, protein, and fats. Add a few more pecans if you’re looking to build muscle mass to increase the calorie content.

1 cup diced cooked turkey
2 tbsp. plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. Splenda
1 green apple, sliced
1 tbsp. dried cranberries
1 tbsp. chopped pecans
2 cups spinach leaves

Combine together the avocado, vinegar, water and Splenda to form dressing.

Next, toss together the diced turkey, apple pieces, dried cranberries, chopped pecans, and spinach leaves. Drizzle with dressing and then serve immediately.
