I have been working with my naturopath recently to figure out some of my stomach issues, along with my anxiety. We did a full food panel and what do you know, it showed several sensitivities: egg, gluten, dairy, yeast, cranberry, tomatoes and soy. Sweet! Haha. She wants me to remove all of these from my diet for 30 days and then start reintroducing them. This has been so overwhelming. I tend to find recipes that have no dairy, but then they have egg, etc. I spent the day at Barnes and Noble to which I was shocked at how many cookbooks have NO pictures of the food. We eat with our eyes! I need pictures! So, I have decided that I will start getting more creative in the kitchen and share more recipes here - and maybe one day, publish my own cookbook - with pictures on EVERY page haha.
I made these chicken poppers yesterday and continued to experiment with them today! They are so good and my boys loved them too! #momwin
Recipe modified from: Unbound Wellness
1 pound of ground chicken (I used 96% fat free)
2 cups of shredded zucchini (I used a thick cheese grater)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp chili powder
Add all ingredients to a bowl. Tip: put the zucchini in between a few paper towels to remove some of the excess water.
Mix ingredients well.
Form chicken mixture into one inch balls and then flatten.
There are two cooking options: air fryer or an oven:
AIR FRYER: Place the chicken poppers in the air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Shake the fryer every 5 minutes so the poppers flip over. This method will get your poppers more crispy than the oven!
OVEN: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place poppers on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Cook for 25 minutes and then broil for the last 5 minutes.
PORTION FIX: 1/4 of the recipe is equal to 1 red and 1/4 green.
2B MINDSET: This is a perfect option for dinner or lunch!
TIP: Feel free to add in other veggies like carrots, squash, etc! Works great with sweet potatoes too!
