HONEY SESAME SHRIMP WITH BRUSSELS SPROUT STIR FRY
By @gimmesomeoven
.
INGREDIENTS:

3 Tbsp. honey, divided
1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
salt and pepper
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
(optional) fried garlic, for garnish
DIRECTIONS:

Whisk together 2 tablespoons honey, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss to combine. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours.

When ready to cook, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large sautΓ© pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add brussels sprouts and saute for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until tender and the edges begin to slightly brown and caramelize. Drizzle with honey, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Transfer the mixture to a separate platter.

Meanwhile, add remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to pan, and return to heat. Add garlic and scallion whites and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Remove the shrimp from the marinade with a slotted spoon, then add to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, and saute until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes. Add to platter, drizzle with sesame oil, top with scallion greens, and toss. Serve immediately, garnished with fried garlic if desired.

To kick this up a notch, feel free to add in a drizzle of Sriracha, or a pinch of red pepper flakes.

ONE POT TACO ZUCCHINI NOODLES
By @kirbiecravings
.
INGREDIENTS:

1 tbsp olive oil
2 large zucchinis, spiralized
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 small brown onion, peeled and finely chopped
3 tbsp of homemade taco seasoning (or one packet of your favorite taco seasoning)
1/4 cup water
14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
fresh cilantro leaves
one lime, sliced into wedges
HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp table salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
DIRECTIONS:

In a large pan or skillet, add olive oil and bring to medium high heat. Add zucchini noodles and cook until zucchini release water and are just cooked. Drain water and remove noodles from pan, setting them aside for later.
Add garlic, onions and ground turkey to your skillet. Cook until ground turkey has browned, crumbling the ground turkey as you cook it. Drain out excess fat.
Sprinkle taco seasoning across turkey. Add entire contents of the diced tomatoes (including the liquid), 1/4 cup water and stir into the turkey mixture. Stir and cook on medium heat until everything is evenly mixed, turkey is cooked through, and sauce has thickened.
Turn heat down to low and add in zucchini noodles. Gently toss zucchini into the sauce, but be careful not to cook the zucchini further or else the noodles will release more water and make the sauce watery. Sprinkle cheese over the pasta. Turn off heat and cover with a lid until cheese is melted.
Garnish with cilantro and squeeze lime juice if desired before serving.

.
Serves: 14-16
INGREDIENTS
Ingredients:
2 large – Pomegranates
2 large – Pears
2 large – Persimmons
2 large – Honey Crisp apples
4 – Kiwis
6 – Mandarins
Dressing Ingredients:
I used this same dressing for the Tropical Fruit Salad. In this recipe, however, I switched the mandarin with an orange and used raw honey.
1 large – Orange
Β½ large – Lemon
ΒΌ cup (60 ml) – raw honey
Β½ tsp. (1.25 ml) – poppy seeds

INSTRUCTIONS
Instructions:
TIP: Make the dressing first and store it in the fridge until ready for use. Fruit like pears and apples brown quickly and should be diced last.
Wash all fruit. Peel, dice, or slice them.
In a large bowl, combine all the fruit together.
Pour previously-prepped dressing over the fruit salad.
Carefully mix and toss to coat.
Serve right away or cover with an air-tight lid and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Enjoy!

Skinny Taco Salad
By @wellplated m
.
YIELD: 4 servings
Ingredients:

FOR THE TACO SALAD:

2 Old El Paso Fajita-Size Flour Tortillas
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 head romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
1 (15-ounce) can reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (11-ounce) can Mexican-style corn, drained
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 medium, ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
1 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
FOR THE SALSA YOGURT DRESSING:

1/4 cup prepared salsa
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
Directions:

Place a rack in the center of your oven, and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Stack the tortillas and cut them in half, then slice each half into 1/2-inch strips. Scatter the strips in the middle of the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil, then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat, then spread them into a single layer. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 8 minutes, turning halfway through. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, in a large, nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium high. Add the turkey, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Break up the meat and stir with a spoon until it is cooked through, about 5 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together the salsa and Greek yogurt to make the dressing.
Place the romaine in a large serving bowl. Top with 1/4 cup of the salsa-yogurt mixture, the turkey, black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, cheese, and green onions. Toss lightly to combine, then sprinkle the tortilla strips over the top. Serve immediately with remaining salsa-yogurt dressing as desired.
