Pumpkin Spice Whipped Ricotta

One of my favorite meals of the year is here, turkey dinner with all the fixings (stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green beans, and pumpkin pie!) It is definitely not the cleanest of meals, but we are only human and those days happen! So you do the best you can, drink A LOT of water, excercise and most importantly start your day with Shakeology! Bring a healthy appetizer so you don’t go overboard at dinner time! This year I decided to bring a clean eating dip; I had a little taste test and I just had to share with you..ENJOY!

Ingredients:

  • 15 ounces part skim ricotta
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For serving: apples, pears and ginger snaps

  
Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor.

  
Purée until smooth

  
Transfer to serving bowl.  Drizzle the top with additional maple syrup and serve.

  
Wishing you and yours a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!!! 🍁🍂🍃

Sloppy Joes Over Rice

I was craving sloppy joes in the worst way the other night, but had no buns in the house so what do I do?!  You make sloppy joes anyway and throw over some brown rice!!  This is probably one of my new favorite recipes which will for sure be added to the weekly dinner mix, next time I may make some variations, but I thought this way was pretty darn good!

Prep Time: 5 minutes, Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • Lean ground meat (I used 3 red containers)
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 medium sized tomatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • Handful of mushrooms
  • Extra virgin coconut oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions:

Cook your brown rice according to the package.

While that is cooking, place 1 tsp of EVCO on bottom of pan and turn heat to medium high.  Cut the tomatoes and peppers and place in pan (sprinkle your favorite seasonings on top), sauté for approx 5 minutes

 

Move the veggies to the one side and throw the meat on the other side to brown (sprinkle your favorite seasonings on top as well).

  

Once the meat is all brown, mix everything together and sprinkle some minced garlic and parsley over everything, 

  

Add the mushrooms and reduce heat to low.

 

Once the rice is just about done, mix in one blue container of the shredded cheddar cheese and let it melt away!

   
 

Measure out 2 yellows of rice, placing one on each plate.

  

Evenly distribute the sloppy joe mixture between the 2 plates and dinner is served..ENJOY!!!
