Seen in the photo is corn Chex crusted chicken cutlets with homemade sweet potato fries!
Prepare chicken cutlets as you normally would, we buy Harvestland chicken breasts or thighs from BJ’s. Crush up corn Chex (or any Chex of your choice for different flavor) and put it in your chicken and bake! It’s the same as using breadcrumbs but gluten free, of course. To make sweet potato fries, just slice them up, put them on a baking sheet with some olive oil & you’re good to go! Sometimes we like to switch it up with CARROT fries instead of sweet potato. For this, you just slice up some carrots (we use the baby ones), put them on a baking sheet, put some pepper & olive oil on top & bake until you get your desired texture! They taste really good and your mind thinks you’re actually having sweet potatoes/yams.
Also forgot to mention we use 95% of the time organic/non-GMO ingredients, frozen or not!
I need to learn baking/cooking times! 😉
Sooo here’s something my Mom makes every week because it’s just a delicious recipe she made up! (sometimes alters it of course)
In a large pan good for pan-frying veggies & throwing quinoa in after is ideal. She cuts up some broccoli, peppers (the spicy frozen ones from Trader Joe’s), chicken sausage of your choice, I recommend the sweet apple chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s (for non-vegetarian), yams/sweet potatoes, onions & quinoa. I’m not positive on the cooking times, but regardless, it is a very quick preparation but AMAZING the next day or two once all the flavors merge together!
This is a very special post… above is the package of gluten free biscotti’s I got in NYC a while back at a coffeehouse called Bis.Co.Latte! This place is AMAZING!!! Their gluten free biscotti are literally the best gluten free cookies I have ever had and their drinks (coffee) are amazing as well! The biscotti’s were a perfect texture, fresh, great for dipping, and there isn’t just one boring flavor, but MANY! I assume they change according to the seasons but I highly recommend everyone goes to their “Find Me Gluten Free” app & find this place!
Trader Joe’s is probably my favorite food market. 🙂 They have everything & anything unique/delicious. I try everything! Haha. These are one of my most recent discoveries..
Sweet sesame seaweed snack! I love the regular seaweed snack, but this one is 100x more amazing & tasteful! It has a subtle sweet taste. I eat it right out of the bag although it does suggest using it as a topping. The only downside is they are a bit oily, but HEALTHY!!!
Shown above are Crunchmaster’s Multi-seed crackers & Blue Diamond’s baked nut chips! They are so delicious & of course, gluten free! These can be found at Stop & Shop!
Oh & of course there’s a frappuccino from Starbucks down there too..
Great article I found with different protein/energy bars that are gluten-free (a few I have tried myself & love) that will assist all you GF fitness people out there! My favorite are the Think Thin bars. The KIND & LUNA bars are always good too! I’m not a huge fan of Lara Bars, BUT you might be! Maybe I just have to try different flavors..
