A few clean eating recipes

Blueberry Oatcake

4 egg whites
1/2 cup rolled oats (can use quick)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp water
1/3 cup blueberries
1 tbs almons (optional)

Whisk first four ingredients for about 1 minute, stir in 1/3 cup blueberries and 1 tbs sliced almonds. Heat a medium skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat: cook batter until eggs are set, usually 3 minutes. Flip oatcake and cook an additional minute. Top with 1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt and 1 tsp maple syrup (if you would like).

Italian Sausage and Egg Muffins

3 mild Italian turkey sausage links
2 cups liquid egg whites (about 10-11 whites)
3 eggs
1 cup oats
2 cups spinach (roughly chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
1 green pepper (chopped)
1 tomato (seeded and chopped)

Cook the turkey sausage until crumbly and no longer pink along with the chopped onion.

In a large bowl, mix all remaining ingredients and season to taste (you can use red pepper flakes, garlic powder, little salt, and pepper).

Grease a muffin tin (or two) and scoop mixture into tins. (Makes about 16-18 "muffins".)

Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 F.

Carbs: 3.5g
Protein: 27.6g


2 packages of ground extra lean turkey breast
4 medium zucchini, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp black pepper

Set broiler on high, arranging rack so that burgers will be about 2 inches from the heat.

In a large bowl, combine grated zucchini, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil, oregano, pepper and then turkey.

Mix well and scoop out 4-to-5 oz portions. Mixture will be really moist so for easier clean up, use a foil-lined baking sheet, prepped with non-stick spray.

Place burgers in oven and broil for 7 minutes. Carefully flip each burger and continue to broil for another 7 minutes on the other side. Serve warm.

Note: These are great at meatballs too! Make with spaghetti squash for a low carb meal.
