Sunday, Funday

On Sundays, I mass produce food for lunch during the week!

First, I concocted my favorite turkey chili:

In the mix:

  • Ground turkey, 85% lean (I like a little fat for these types of stews)
  • 3 diced and peeled parsnips
  • 1 large can of green peas
  • 1 small can of sliced, white mushrooms
  • 1 huge can (about 24oz) of diced tomatoes
  • spices: dash of hot sauce, pepper, salt, dash of agave, cayenne pepper

I brown the turkey first with no added oil, since there is a significant amount of fat.  I add pepper and cayenne pepper to just the meat.  After browning, I add the diced parsnips and tomatoes, and bring to a heavy simmer, usually for about 30 minutes or until the parsnips are medium-soft.  I then add the peas and mushrooms, extra spices, and put it on a low simmer for another 25-30 minutes.  TO. DIE. FOR.

I also made another great Paleo recipe: avocado chocolate mousse!

For those of us who love DEEP chocolate (yes, I buy the 85-90% chocolate bars), this is great.

In the mix:

  • 2 avocadoes, ripe, smashed
  • 1/2 cup Hershey’s dark chocolate cocoa
  • dash of chocolate protein powder
  • cayenne pepper and salt

This feeds me for years!
