Turkey Eggplant Polenta {Gluten-free, Dairy-free}

Happy Friday Sweet Readers! I'm looking forward to a fun night in with friends tonight then getting ready to spend time with family over the vacation. I may pop in with another recipe or two but if not, I will be back in the New Year with some amazing new recipes for you all to enjoy.

This polenta casserole is such a comfort food dish and one that I love! The polenta is creamy and hearty and has a great bite to it and yet has no cream! It's a great option to bring to a potluck party or to someone who is needing some extra help during the holidays and could use a hot meal. Go spread the Christmas cheer and eat well!

Lemon Thyme Chicken


Please share and Pin! I just love bright citrus flavors with chicken. It's an easy and light way to revitalize an otherwise mild flavored meat. Using the juice and zest of fresh lemon in this recipe gives you a delicious lemony flavor that pairs perfectly with vegetables and nutty rice.

Slow-cooker Beef with Garlic Mashed Turnips {Gluten-free}

This recipe is a great way to transform an inexpensive cut of meat into something tender and delicious. I buy beef stew meat in bulk then divide it into freezer bags in 1 1/2 pounds each and freeze them for later. These mashed turnips pair wonderfully with the meat and they are just like making mashed potatoes, except lower in carbs. Serve some fresh steamed broccoli or a green salad on the side!

Turnips are round root vegetables that are purple and white with green leaves on top, for those who aren't sure. ;-)

Korean Beef with Quinoa {Gluten-free}

My family loves this recipe! They ask me to make it nearly every time we make up our Weekly Menu. It's the perfect combination of sweet and savory! For this recipe, I kept it simple with just beef and quinoa, but typically I add a mound of fresh steamed broccoli alongside as well because that just screams delicious take out to me. This is my go-to when I'm out of ideas. Click over to type2diabetes.com to see my recipe. Try this next time you're craving take out but don't want to leave the house!

Chicken Stuffed Mushrooms with Guacamole {Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Low-carb, Paleo}

Looking for a new appetizer idea? I know we have a few holiday parties coming up and I like to have an allergy-friendly winner in my pocket. These are really easy to make and even more delicious to eat! If you plan to bring them along to a party you're attending, you can either opt to make them at the party house (ya know if it's your family or close friends) or you can prepare the mushrooms ahead, per the recipe and just hold off on the guac and onions. Bring the guac along in an airtight container or in a dish with plastic wrap pressed directly onto it to avoid browning. Just ask to warm the mushrooms slightly in the oven (4-6 min) then top each one with guac and onions. Easy! These are really light, healthy and delicious! A new take on a stuffed mushroom!

Chopped Salad in a Jar {Mason Jar Meals, salads}

Are you looking a fresh idea for lunches this week? I just love Mason jars! They are durable, versatile, inexpensive and cute, what more can you ask for. Not only do I drink water out of them all day long but I like to make and store all kinds of foods, including salads. They keep salads super fresh without crushing the lettuce and veggies like plastic bags do and a Mason jar salad is easy to tote and doubles as your bowl when you're ready to eat. Just grab a tiny 1/2 pint Mason jar for your dressing and you're ready to go! Click over to www.type2diabetes.com to see my recipe for this exact chopped salad. ...click here for the recipe!
