My husband and I are still on our 1st Advocare Challenge and am very happy to report that he has lost 12 pounds and I have lost 3.5 lbs and I am down a total of 8 inches!!! We are currently on Day 17. I wanted to share some recipes of what we have been cooking and eating at our house during the challenge. I must say I am loving the beautiful colors of these dishes! I hope you get some great ideas for your cooking…
Small Red Potatoes
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 425. In baking dish, spray with PAM and small amount of olive oil to cover bottom. Quarter the potatoes and season how you prefer with all the seasonings from above. Stir well and bake uncovered for approximately 30 to 45 minutes or until done. So simple!!
Shrimp and Peppers
I prepared the shrimp and peppers separately for this because I decided to have Shrimp and Spinach (I will show next). I made the peppers for my husband and we shared the shrimp. For the shrimp:
1 lb shrimp–tails off
Small amount of olive oil in a skillet and Pam
Salt and Pepper
Red Pepper if you like a kick
Saute the shrimp in the skillet with all the above seasonings for about 5 to 8 minutes. Enjoy!
For the peppers, cut your peppers into strips: We used for this onions, green peppers, orange and yellow peppers. Saute in your skillet with optional Olive Oil or use PAM, all the peppers, with salt, pepper, garlic, cumin adds a great flavor and red pepper if you desire. You can also cook the peppers with the shrimp if you like.
Shrimp and Spinach
I think this is just beautiful!! It was delicious as well–especially if you are a spinach person–I LOVE spinach:-) but Hubs does not. I cooked the spinach in a skillet with small amount of olive oil and PAM. The seasonings I used are cut up onions, salt, pepper, and garlic. I combined the shrimp used in the recipe above and ta-dah!! A beautiful and delicious dinner!
Ground Turkey with Vegetables
1 lb lean ground turkey
Red peppers cut into strips
Zucchini halved or quartered
Brown and drain the ground turkey in a skillet. Add all your vegetables and the following seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme. Cook until at your preference.
