"NOODLE - LESS" TURKEY LASAGNE - Dinner Tonight. Lunch Tomorrow

Noodle-less turkey lasagne. Dinner tonight. Lunch tomorrow. The difference between like and love… I like pasta and noodles but I love my six pack. Each year I find it necessary to tweak my recipes in a way to enjoy food, with less unnecessary carbs and saturated fat. My version of NOODLE LESS LASAGNE is a great option on the traditional. You can even mask some veggies for your children.

Ever tire of your chalky vanilla protein shake or your fancy fifteen dollar juice from the local juice shop? It’s so easy to blend up your own at a fraction of the cost with ingredients you know!

Chia Seed Pudding

Do you ever tire of eating yogurt or an apple with almond butter as a “healthy” snack? Chia seen pudding is embarrassingly easy to make and if you prepare it a home you’ll save a shit ton of money, won’t eat unnecessary added foods, and you’ll use less plastic.

There are a lot of benefits to eating chia seeds. The little buggers are antioxidants, full of fiber, and have the miracle “omega - 3 fatty acids”. A potential side effect is that the seeds can potentially get stuck in your teeth. This shouldn’t create any long term issues as long as you brush your teeth.

CHIA SEED PUDDING

2 TBSP CHIA SEEDS. 1.5 CUPS ALMOND MILK. DONE.

You’ll need a few re-usable containers. I like WECK jars because they are cute.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

  • 1.5 Cups Almond Milk

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS

  • Vanilla

  • Cinnamon

  • Honey

  • Fruit

I find that 2 tbsp chia seeds to 1.5 cups liquid is a great ratio. This is where it gets tricky. Place 2 tbsp chia seeds in a container with 1.5 cups almond milk, stir, seal and pop it in the fridge. It’s a good idea to shake the container a few hours later. That’s it! Add optional ingredients just before eating!
