Two years ago I was sitting in bed in Park City, Utah. Cody took me on my first ever ski trip and boy was that a trip I won’t ever forget. He probably won’t either. Unfortunately, the main thing I remember was how terrible I was at skiing and the ridiculous fight we got in on the side of the bunny hill.
But this post is not about that story. This post is about turkey.
I’ll get there.
So anyways, we are on this trip. Cody went out for his second day of skiing and as mentioned above ^^^ I did not have any success skiing. I stayed back while he enjoyed his blissful morning on the side of a mountain in 8 degree temps.
I was scrolling facebook, as you do, when I came across a post about “14 weeks to cutting out processed food.” I clicked, scrolled some more, and within a matter of 34 minutes I fell hard for this 100 Days of Real Food thing. I mean HARD. I subscribed to the email list, signed up for the online class, and joined the facebook group all before even getting out of bed. Talk about #productivity
Poor Cody. He had no idea. He just went out for a nice morning of skiing. Meanwhile, I was back at the house transforming our eating habits for the rest of eternity. When he got back he listened to me as I shared all my expertise I had gained in the last two hours and politely smiled when I told him this new journey WE were embarking on!!!
So how does this relate to turkey, you ask?
One evening I was looking for something to do with all this leftover turkey that my Uncle had given us at Thanksgiving. I came across Lisa’s chicken enchilada recipe. It seemed easy enough. I didn’t have chicken, but I had turkey. And a lot of it.
The best thing about this recipe is that it is a double batch. So you make two; cook one, freeze the other for later. Which comes in super handy on the
nights when I am busy weeks when I have ran out of grocery money in my budget.
Lisa keeps it real on her blogs. I’m a big fan of finding recipes online, but I hate the endless scrolling through pictures of every. single. step. of. the. recipe. Ya feel me? She does a short explanation of the meal, how she came up with it, or why it meets the “whole food” list. Then she does a short and concise recipe that is easy to follow. Also, did I mention that she has a whole page of recipes on her blog that are FREE? Like at least 100.
I finally got her first cookbook, “100 Days of Real Food” for Christmas following said ski trip. This cookbook has SO many resources in it. It really is the perfect gift for anyone who is starting the whole food journey. When her second cookbook, “Fast and Fabulous,” came out in late 2016, I was on the preorder list so that I could have it as soon as it was released. Hers are the only cookbooks I read or use.
I know the holiday season is in our rear view mirror by this point, but perhaps you have some turkey hanging out in the freezer looking for a yummy way to be eaten. This recipe will surely meet those needs!
Until next time,
