Healthy & Easy Beef Fajitas You Can Make In 15 Minutes

Healthy & Easy Beef Fajitas You Can Make In 15 Minutes

Healthy & Easy Beef Fajitas You Can Make in 15 Minutes Summer calls for colorful dinners made in no time at all and these healthy and easy Beef Fajitas are perfect for that. You can have them ready in less than 20 minutes from the time you decide to start cooking! I have to give you a few great tips on how to stir-fry beef strips because there is a little bit of an art to making sure they stay nice and juicy. The number one mistake most people make is adding all the strips to the pan at once while they are still cold from the fridge. That will lower the temperature in the pan and make the strips boil instead of fry. Instead of doing that, take the strips out of the fridge 30 min before frying so they can get to room temperature and fry them in several batches if you are making a lot. You also want the pan to be SMOKING hot. Wait at least a few minutes for the pan and oil to properly heat up. Another great reason to cook the strips in batches is that they get a more even frying if they dont touch each other in the pan. It only takes about 3 minutes to cook each batch so the overall time doesnt get much longer by splitting the strips into batches. In my opinion, bell peppers are the perfect veggie for stir-frying. They are a little bit sweet while still being savory, and they keep their firm consistency when heated. Combined with onion, they form the basis of a lot of my stir-fry recipes. Bell peppers are also great from a nutritional standpoint as they are loaded with vitamin C and high in other vitamins and minerals as well. Continue reading >>

Beef And Veggie Chili Made Diabetes Friendly

Beef And Veggie Chili Made Diabetes Friendly

Chili is a food that can be laden with carbs and fat, so I wanted to tweak my recipe to make it more diabetes friendly. The main source of carbs in this recipe are beans- which are full of fiber. Fiber can help to normalize glucose levels. Also, I included cinnamon which has been shown to be beneficial in the diabetes diet. The cinnamon can be increased in the recipe based on your preferences or you could let each person add extra cinnamon to their serving if desired. I would consider this to be a mild chili and would be suitable for the whole family or those who prefer less spicy foods. You may adjust the seasonings up if you like a more spicy chili. In addition, feel free to alter the types of veggies in the ingredients to whatever lower starch veggies you may have on hand. Good additions could include zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. Calorie and carb counts are listed on the recipe for your convenience. Continue reading >>

Farmhouse Beef Casserole

Farmhouse Beef Casserole

Ingredients Directions Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray. Peel and grate the potato into a bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup of the cheese. Spread evenly over the bottom of the prepared casserole. Bake for 20 minutes, until potato is browned and crispy. Meanwhile, brown ground sirloin, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet, breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon as it browns. Discard any excess fat. Stir in tomatoes with their juice, chili powder, and the cabbage. Season with pepper to taste. Sauté, stirring, for a minute or two.

The good news is that there are foods you can add to your diet that will help control diabetes. Our collection of healthy diabetic main dishes offer low-carb, low-fat, low-sugar, and low-sodium options that are flavorful and satisfying down to the last bite. First up is our Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa. View Recipe: Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Depending on the season, you may want to consider substituting thin, blanched, fresh asparagus for the sugar snap peas. You can’t go wrong with either application. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is essential to the flavor of this salad. The bottled juice just doesn’t compare. Microwave lemons for about 30 seconds before squeezing them; they’ll yield more juice. View Recipe: Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Skillet Pork and Warm Pineapple Salsa Pineapple is a sweet foil for the fiery jalapeño. Either fresh or canned pineapple chunks work well in this recipe. If you like a spicier kick, remember that smaller jalapeño peppers are typically hotter than the larger ones. To complete the meal, serve with rice and steamed snow peas.

The lamb is marinated in a brightly spiced marinade featuring cilantro, onion, lime, garlic, ginger , and garam masala, threaded on skewers, and served over bulgur.

Lime does double duty in this recipe, both in the marinade and the dressing. Its tart flavor enhances the grilled beef, the tomatoes, and the honey-kissed dressing. Large, juicy shrimp and succulent scallops keep company with tender onion and zucchini in these spicy-hot grilled kabobs. A brushing sauce of mashed chipotle peppers and cumin provide plenty of fire. Juicy chicken breasts go Southwestern with this salsa bursting with pineapple, chipotle pepper, and lime. Plain yogurt adds the creamy texture to the garlic-lemon dressing, which is tossed with greens and parmesan cheese, then topped with broiled salmon. This chicken recipe has all the best ingredients of Italy -- black olives, capers, garlic, fresh basil, red wine, olive oil, and tomatoes. Perfect for a meal on a hot day.
