Enchiladas... They're greasy, cheesy, usually cooked in poor-quality oil, and smothered in a salty enchilada sauce. The kind of meal that makes unbuttoning your jeans a total necessity afterwards (we've all been there!). Definitely not the picture of a healthy meal, but come on, no one can deny the deliciousness of a good enchilada! So I decided I had to figure out a way to make a healthy version, and surprisingly, it was a lot easier than I expected. A few simple ingredient upgrades and your typical enchiladas got a total makeover! And I'm very excited to report that the result was SO satisfying - definitely one of my favorite recipes ever!
I feel like I'm finally going steady with my Instant Pot. At first I was pretty intimidated by it. I let it sit in my cabinet for months before getting up the courage to try it out. Now that I'm comfortable with it, we really understand each other. I tell it what to do, and it listens perfectly and makes me look like a way better cook than I actually am! A very positive relationship if you ask me. I never have to worry about undercooking or overcooking meat, and I don't even need to stand around in the kitchen anymore while cooking! Once the food is in the Instant Pot, you can wander away and just let it work it's magic! It's the best. And I have to say, of everything I've made in it so far, this recipe has to be my favorite. Yep, I said it! Turkey meatballs & spaghetti squash are a match made in heaven, and the Instant Pot Makes it a breeeeze.
Who doesn't love chicken tenders? I definitely used to (especially with a nice side of ranch dressing mmm). But honestly, I'd never order them out at a restaurant now because anything thats heavily breaded and fried isn't exactly doing our bodies any favors. So what's a girl to do when that chicken tender craving strikes? Upgrade that craving and whip up a total makeover on the classic chicken tender. Your tastebuds will be happy and your body will thank you! These Almond Flax Chicken Tenders are beyond delicious and super easy to make. They pack and extra healthy punch because the "breading" is made of almond meal and ground flaxseeds for plenty of healthy fat and added fiber, but I promise they don't taste "guilt-free" at all!
I'm such a creature of habit when it comes to my morning routine. Wake up, workout, smoothie, and get going on my workday. The smoothie part of that routine is almost always my Chocolate Almond Butter Cup smoothie. I was seriously hooked on that one until I came up with one that's equally as delicious and crave-worthy. Enter the PB&J Smoothie. Who doesn't love PB&J!? It's such a nostalgic combo of flavors and always hits the spot, especially in smoothie form!
I'm so excited to share this recipe with you. It's definitely my favorite thing I've made in the Instant Pot yet, and that's saying a lot because you know I'm obsessed with the instant pot hard-boiled eggs! But there's just something about this chicken noodle soup. It's so delicious and flavorful, super easy to make, and it's really just a bowl of cozy comfort that will bring a smile to your face whenever you eat it.
