These Delicious Turkey and Veggie Patties are moist, colourful, tasty and nutritious. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. They make a quick and healthy midweek dinner and are great for lunchboxes. You could also make these into balls. For kids, you might wish to use less cayenne pepper or omit it if it’s a bit too spicy but I find it to be fairly subtle. It’s worth the extra step of frying the onions and spices as this brings out the flavour. Turkey is a healthy source of protein needed to grow, repair and replace tissue in the body. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. You could also use chicken mince in this recipe. The grated carrot adds moisture, colour and nutrients to the patties and helps increase your veggie intake for the day. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants which promote healing in the body.
These Almond and Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are crumbly, wholesome and delicious. The almond meal and coconut flour give a perfect cookie texture. Almond meal contains protein and nutrients that regular flour lacks. Made with gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and refined sugar-free ingredients, they’re easier to digest and a much healthier cookie than most. Almond butter contains healthy oils, protein and other nutrients making a healthy base for the chocolate filling. The chocolate filling is not overly sweet which I prefer but you can add more maple syrup to suit your taste. Hope you enjoy them!
These Turkey Meatballs are really flavour-some, quick to make and very healthy. They’re gluten-free and dairy-free. I haven’t added egg as I find that the mixture sticks together enough without it and eating two or more proteins together is harder to digest so I prefer to keep it simple but add an egg if you prefer. You could also add ½ a cup of gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour for that texture if you wish. Turkey is a healthy protein. Free-range turkey is best if you can find it. Spinach contains extra nutrients and you can’t really tell it’s in there. Great for fussy eaters. Hope you enjoy!
