This is my family’s favorite chili recipe and it uses ground turkey instead of beef so it’s a bit leaner (93% lean) and still a great source of protein. My kids love to top this with shredded cheese, sour cream, and sometimes diced avocado. Also, ketchup. They put ketchup on pretty much everything.
This broccoli cauliflower salad is amazing! Someone brought this for me after my oldest son was born and I’ve been making it ever since. This makes an amazing summer side dish and it’s one that you can prepare ahead of time because it only tastes better the longer it sits (just leave out the cheese and bacon if you aren’t serving it right away).
This Texas Caviar with Avocado is one of my favorite healthy treats during the summer. It’s packed with flavor and perfect with some tortilla chips or eaten plain as a side at a summer BBQ. I love that this salsa is loaded with nutrients and with the black-eyed peas and avocado it’s a great way to get some protein and healthy fats into your diet.
I can’t get enough of fruit-filled salads during the summer. There’s something about throwing fresh strawberries into a salad that just makes it feel like a special treat! This spinach salad combines some of my favorite flavors and it’s perfect as a light lunch or as a fantastic side dish at a summer barbecue.
