Ah, the dog days of Summer. Truthfully, I LOVE Summertime… but who wants to cook in the heat? NO ONE. And now you don’t have to! Here are my 3 FAVORITE no cook hacks for Lean and Green meals that are not only easy, but delicious and will keep you feeling great without having to bear the heat.
#1 Asian Chicken Salad Wraps & Pepper Cups
Simply take 6 ounces of cooked chicken breast (use leftovers, grocery store rotisserie chicken or even canned!), mix it with 1 teaspoon of Stacey Hawkins Toasted Sesame Ginger Blend, 1 Tablespoon of Greek yogurt and place it in lettuce cups or even stuff it in a pepper or tomato! The end result is 1 lean, 1/4 a green and one condiment (for the chicken salad- add extra green counts for your veggies.) So delicious!
#2 Spicy Shrimp Cocktail
Precooked wild-caught shrimp is a MUST for a Summer Lean and Green Meal! Since shrimp are some of the leanest of leans, you can pair a whopping 7 ounces of cooked shrimp with a classic cocktail sauce made with 2 T reduced sugar ketchup with 1 teaspoon of Stacey Hawkins Kickin’ Cajun Seasoning (or more if you like it hot!) for a meal that is 1 lean and 2 condiments. Simple, easy and so satisfying.
#3 Zucchini & Mushroom Parmesan Dusted Linguini
Drizzle 1 teaspoon of Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil, 1 teaspoon of Stacey Hawkins Balsamic Mosto Cotto and 1/4 teaspoon of Stacey Hawkins Dash of Desperation Seasoning over 1 Cup of raw zucchini noodles, 1/2 Cup of sliced portobello mushrooms (you can use marinated mushrooms too- just NOT the ones in oil!) and 1 Tablespoon of parmesan cheese. Toss together and serve for a Lean and Green recipe you’ll love. 3 greens, one healthy fat and 2 condiments are all it takes. Feel free to add some cooked shrimp, chicken or beef for a complete meal!
Beat the heat and enjoy these great recipes all Summer. Perfect for Optavia recipes, Medifast Recipes or Take Shape for Life recipes, or no diet at all! But if you are, you’ll stay on program and feeling great. I promise!
