CALORIE COUNT: 225 Calories Per ServingSERVING SIZE: 164 grams.

 

What you need:

3 Turkey breasts

1/3 Cup red peppers (Chopped)

1/2 Onion (Chopped)

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 Tsp. turmeric

1 Tsp. pepper

1/2 Tsp. sea salt

1 Tsp. rosemary

1 Tsp. thyme

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (Separated)

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Servings: 3.)

  1. Take your 3 thawed-out turkey breasts, and place them in a food processor or blender, along with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil; process until texture is smooth.

  2. Next, place your ground turkey breast in a medium-sized bowl, and mix with all of the additional ingredients, except for your last Tbsp. of olive oil; mix ingredients together until evenly incorporated together.

  3. Place your stovetop on medium-high heat, and put a large skillet on the fire with your 1 Tbsp. of olive oil; next, make 15-20 meatballs from your bowl of mixed ingredients, and place them in the skillet.

  4. Cook the meatballs in the skillet, turning each one frequently to prevent burning and to ensure each meatball is cooked thoroughly; meatballs are done whenever meat at the center of the meatball is fully cooked.

  5. When done, take meatballs from skillet, and serve while hot; for an appetizer, serve meatballs with toothpicks on a plate covered in low-sodium barbecue sauce, or for lunch & dinner serve over pasta, or with sweet potato & avocado.

  6. Eat & enjoy!

The Editor’s Own: 5-Minute Fresh Garden Omelette!

Hi guys! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a recipe of my own, but I promise the one I have for you today is a classic! Breakfast is the MOST important meal of the day, getting our metabolisms going & fueling our bodies and minds for success throughout the day. Personally, I like eating as much as I can & feeling full in the mornings, without sacrificing health or taste; so I wanted to come up with a recipe that accomplished all of these things! The finished product is my 5-Minute Fresh Garden Omelette recipe. It’s absolutely loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and protein, it’s low in fat, and is only 270 CALORIES PER SERVING! And for the amount of food you get to eat, you really just can’t beat it. This omelette is perfectly fine by itself, but if you’d like to make a slightly larger meal, try a piece of wholegrain cinnamon raisin bread with a teaspoon of low-fat cream cheese on top with a fresh glass of fruit juice. Definitely give it a try, share your thoughts & opinions, and make sure to shoot me a picture at editor@tasty25.com. Let’s continue to be food conscious by making healthy eating decisions, sharing the gift of healthy nutrition with our friends & family, and coming up with new & innovative ways to keep our healthy lifestyles on track. Enjoy, and Happy Cooking! – David Jones II, Editor of Tasty25 Magazine

 

 

What you need:

2 1/2 Cups egg whites

1/2 Cup tomato (Chopped)

1/2 Cup green bell pepper (Chopped)

1/4 Cup sliced turkey (Chopped)

1/4 Cup cheddar cheese

1/4 Cup onion (Chopped)

1/4 Cup green onion (Chopped)

2 Tbsp. cilantro

1 Tbsp. oregano

1 Tbsp. basil

1 Tbsp. ground black pepper

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 5 minutes; Serving size – 2 adults)

  1. First, take your egg whites, cilantro, oregano, basil, and black ground pepper and mix together evenly in a medium to large sized bowl. (This is to make sure egg whites are evenly seasoned before large ingredients are added.)

  2. Next, add the chopped tomatoes, green bell pepper, sliced turkey, and both white & green onions to the seasoned egg white mix; Stir until mix is even.

  3. In a large non-stick skillet, add the 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, and place stovetop on medium-high heat.

  4. Pour the mixture into the skillet, and allow to cook until edges begin to harden; Once edges are cooked, place the cheddar cheese in the center, and lightly flip the omelette into somewhat of a burrito. (Cheese will be enveloped between the omelette.)

  5. Allow omelette to cook on one side for 1-2 minutes, and then cook on the other side for an equal amount of time; Omelette is complete when the egg whites have complete hardened and are no longer runny.

  6. Finally, take omelette, separate into 2 servings, and serve immediately.

  7. Eat & enjoy!
