By using extra lean ground turkey, you can make the meatballs healthier compared to traditional beef meatballs. And in summer, many of us enjoy the fresh fragrance that herbs bring – so we put them to use in this recipe. Whether fresh or dried, using herbs is such an easy way to turn up the flavour and contribute to your health with little to no calories. In this recipe, we use dried herbs; however, you’re encouraged to use/add fresh herbs if you end up making creative dishes with these turkey meatballs. Make pasta, salad, soup, or a sub with them… you are the boss in your kitchen!
During the dynamic and challenging times of today, new routines and behaviours will begin to emerge. This does present opportunity for us to change, for the better. Specifically, when faced with staying close to home each day it's important to make sure the routines we adopt are ones that serve our health, rather than damage it. One routine we recommend taking advantage of routinely is having a few flexible staple meals in your diet throughout the day – from our experience working with clients, we recognize that this is one common thread that is greatly appreciated.
When planning for a trip on the snack/ food front, one of our all-time favourite creations is homemade trail mix. Accordingly, we thought to spread the word on a simple and nutritious “trail mix foundation” recipe this month.
This recipe creates a hearty and filling soup that eats like a meal and is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fibre. With a thick and creamy texture and rich flavour, it is hard to believe that this soup is low in both fat and calories (macro trackers rejoice!). This chowder is lower in sodium than many commercial products as the fresh ingredients that it contains (including onions, turnip, thyme, and parsley) contribute to this soup’s delicious flavour.
The name says it all - don't you agree?
