3 easy, fast, healthy recipes

These three recipes are not only fast, easy, and healthy, they are staples in our home because they're so yummy! They help with health freedom, time freedom, stress freedom, and even location freedom, because they're simple to make in our RV kitchen.
*Tip: Keep extra cooked ground turkey or shredded chicken in the fridge or freezer for quick meals at night.

Meat Crust Pizza
There are many fancier ways to make pizza crust healthier, like cauliflower crust, spaghetti squash crust, or zucchini crust, but we prefer meat crust. And it's faster and easier!
5 oz cooked 85-94% lean ground beef or turkey (1 lean)
1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese, divided (1 lean)
1 Tbsp reduced fat parmesan cheese (½ condiment)
⅛ tsp salt (½ condiment)
⅛ tsp garlic powder (¼ condiment)
⅛ tsp onion powder (¼ condiment)
¼ tsp Italian seasoning (½ condiment)
½ cup tomato sauce like Rao's Marinara (2 greens)
½ cup red and green bell peppers, optional (1 green)

Mix meat, ½ cup of mozzarella, parmesan, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning until combined. Spread into a circle on a pizza pan or baking stone. Or for easier clean up, use a foil covered pie pan. Top the meat with sauce, remaining mozzarella, and then peppers.
Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned. Enjoy with a fork!
For the additional 1½ green, serve with a veggie on the side, like ¾ cup green beans. 
Makes 2 servings, each with 1 lean, green, and 1 condiment. 

Chicken Stir-Fry with Cauliflower Rice
We have this at least weekly, because I keep the frozen ingredients stocked. It's just easy to stir-fry and serve! I use a frozen onion and pepper blend to avoid chopping. Sometimes I use eggs; other times I just use more chicken or add cheese.
1½ cups frozen cauliflower rice (3 greens)
1 cup frozen broccoli (2 greens)
¼ cup scallions, chopped (½ green)
¼ cup red and green peppers (½ green)
¼ tsp garlic powder (½ condiment)
¼ tsp ginger (½ condiment)
2 Tbsp lite soy sauce (2 condiments)
3 tsp teriyaki sauce (3 condiments)
2 beaten eggs (⅔ lean)
8 oz cooked chicken, shredded or cubed or 9.3 oz cooked shrimp (1⅓ lean)
1 tsp olive oil for chicken or 2 tsp oil for shrimp (1-2 healthy fats)
Dash of red pepper flakes, optional

Scramble eggs in skillet with cooking spray until done, but still moist. Remove and set aside. In skillet, heat 1-2 tsp olive oil (see above) over medium high heat. Cook white parts of scallions and red and green peppers for 1 minute. Add cauliflower rice and broccoli and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly. Add chicken or shrimp, diced green onion tops, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, garlic powder, ginger, and eggs. Stir well until lightly browned. Serve with a dash of red pepper flakes if desired.
Makes 2 servings, each with 1 lean, 3 greens, 3 condiments, and 1-2 healthy fats.

Mac in a Bowl
Yes, this salad does taste like a McDonalds Big Mac®! Can you sing it with me? Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun bowl.
4½ oz cooked 95-97% lean ground beef or turkey (¾ lean)
⅛ tsp each onion powder, salt, pepper to season meat (1 condiment) 
¼ cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (¼ lean) 
3 cups shredded lettuce (3 greens)
1 Tbsp chopped onion (1 condiment)
1 chopped dill pickle spear (½ snack)
2 Tbsp light Thousand Island dressing (1 healthy fat)
1 tsp sesame seeds, optional (1 condiment)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. For a smaller salad, reduce lettuce and add a veggie on the side.
Makes 1 serving with 1 lean, 3 greens, 3 condiments, and 1 healthy fat.
