Thai Basil Chicken with Cashews

I was also inspired by our good friend Crystal’s “Haters Not Allowed” healthy lifestyle Facebook group for this wonderful recipe. Skinnytaste.com is one of our favorite go-to sources for healthy recipes, so when I read that Crystal tried their Thai Basil Chicken and loved it I just had to try it myself. We both added some yummies to it to enhance it even more while still keeping it light. It’s wholesome enough with the added veggies and cashews that you won’t even feel like you need rice. Cheers to a fresh 2017!

Spicy Cheesesteak-Stuffed Pepper

Cheesesteak sandwiches are to die for! I was inspired by a recent trip to historic Philly and one of my favorite sandwich shops, Jersey Mike’s, for this recipe…A traditional Philly Cheesesteak is topped with Cheese Wiz, which is absolutely delicious…the common phrase for ordering is “wiz wit…and then you can add other toppings like mushrooms and peppers. But I actually prefer the smokey Provolone cheese version when making the recipe lighter and carb free. The Big Kahuna hot cheesesteak sandwich at Jersey Mike’s is also heavenly! What does it for me are the caramelized onions, mushrooms and jalapeños, then topped with gooey cheese, yum! Here’s my take on a low-carb version of this genius sandwich. The flavor is all there, just no evil bun!
