What a better way to start your week than with an easy dinner! This cauli rice bowl with teriyaki salmon is my go-to on nights I just want to throw something simple together for dinner!
To make this dinner super easy, I always have a good teriyaki sauce on hand and some frozen veggies in my freezer. For teriyaki sauce, I love the Soy Vey gluten free sauce! In my freezer, I always have some cauli rice, string beans, & carrots! This way I can throw together a stir fry whenever
For the salmon teriyaki, simply marinate it in your favorite teriyaki sauce and bake on 375 for 20 minutes! You can top it with some sesame seeds as well :)
-1 pack of frozen cauli rice
-1/2 red onion chopped
-1 pepper chopped
-3 carrots chopped
-1 to 2 tbs teriyaki sauce
-1 tbs coconut aminos
-garlic powder -black pepper -sesame oil or another oil to stir fry the veggies in *you can sub in/ add any veggies that you like*
What to do:

Cold peanut noodles are one of my favorite dishes to order when I get Chinese food. However, being gluten free, I can't enjoy this dish out! I decided to make own recipe, so I could enjoy it at home! I used Palmini for the pasta, but any low carb pasta such as miracle noodles would work!
First, stir fry the veggies together! I used...
Then, while the veggies cook make the sauce! Whisk together...
Pour sauce into pan, stir, and serve! Enjoy this delicious, low carb dinner! It pairs excellent with some fish or chicken!
Winner, winner chicken dinner! These air fried chicken nuggets are a game changer! Follow the recipe below to enjoy this amazing dinner that takes you back to being a little kid!
Chicken cut up into little pieces
1/2 cup almond flour
2 tbs ground flax seeds
1 tbs Italian seasoning
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
Crack egg into one bowl and whisk. In a separate bowl, mix together almond flour, flax, and seasoning. Take the chicken and dip it into the egg and then into the flour mixture! Cook in the air fryer for 15 minutes and flip the chicken half way through! If you don't have an air fryer you can bake your chicken nuggets at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes! Take out and enjoy! I paired mine with a home made honey mustard dipping sauce.
I love having a huge salad for lunch and recently, I've been adding in a scoop of 20/20 powder into my dressing for my protein! It makes the salad dressing super creamy and keeps me so full!
Pair with your favorite salad to keep you full longer and add more delicious flavor!
My favorite salad ingredients are...
I love turkey burgers, but dining out they are usually not gluten free and eating them without a bun is no fun! I decided to make fresh, homemade turkey burgers with my own bun! To make the bun, I used F-Factor's biscuit recipe and cut it in half. This recipe tastes like the real deal and although it does require a little work, it will never disappoint!
F-FACTOR 20/20 BUN: (makes 4)
2 scoops unflavored 20/20 powder
1/3 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt
1 tbs coconut oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients together and then add in the wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Scoop onto a parchment lined tray in 4 even scoops. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool and then cut in half or use 2 as a bun
TURKEY BURGER: (makes 4)
1 pound ground turkey meat
1/2 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped sweet pepper
1 finely chopped green onion
Lots of finely chopped parsley
1 minced garlic
Spices: salt, pepper, paprika, & garlic powder (to taste)
Mix all of the ingredients together well. Simply form them into patties and refrigerate for about an hour so everything binds together really well. This isn’t required, but it makes the burger stay together really well. Plus, during this time you can prepare your 20/20 buns! Pan sear on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes on each side!
Now is the fun part... creating the burger 🍔 Spread avocado on the 20/20 biscuit and add the patty. Top with pickles, tomato, onion, lettuce and anything else! Pair it with some carrot fries for a great dinner filled with fiber and protein!
The Shhhh is bananas!
Anyone else only know how to spell banana because of this song?! Anyway, no one asked for it, but here is yet ANOTHER banana bread for your feed. I’m sorry... I had to... it’s too good not to share 🥳

Bake for about 45-50 minutes
Are you craving a dessert, but to lazy to turn on the oven? Well then don't worry! This recipe tastes exactly like a funfetti cupcake and you could even make some frosting for it while it cooks!

Usually, I'm always reaching for almond flour when creating a recipe. However, this time I decided to switch it up! Hazelnut flour is low in carbs, naturally gluten free, contains fiber, and relatively low in calories! Hazelnuts are also loaded with antioxidants and are full of nutrients!
Anyway, these delicious blondies are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free & grain free! They have a delicious nutty taste that will make you keep reaching for seconds!
-1/3 cup of almond butter
-1 tbs coconut oil
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/3 cup coconut sugar (can sub for monk fruit)
-2 cups hazelnut flour (see note below)
-1 tsp baking powder
First, preheat oven to 375. Mix together wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another. Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix batter. Fold in chocolate chips and then transfer the batter into a parchment lined baking dish! Top with sprinkles to make it pretty :) Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy!
You could sub for almond flour if you’re allergic to hazelnut flour!
Mushrooms have so many amazing qualities!!
Did you know that mushrooms...
Usually, I pass on the mushrooms just because i’m not a huge fan, but with this delicious dish, I was reaching for seconds (and thirds). I made this “spaghetti” with Palmini Pasta so it’s basically just all veggies!! You can substitute with your favorite low carb pasta or indulge in the real deal! Either way, this dish won't disappoint!!
(Pictured is a serving for 3 people, but the recipe below is for 1)
-1 pack of mushrooms (I used baby portabello) cut up
-1/2 onion diced
-1 pack of noodles: I used hearts of palm noodles
-Salt & pepper
Sauté onion with a drop of olive oil. When it becomes translucent add in sliced mushrooms. Add in garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. To loosen up the sauce add about 1/8th cup of water and let it cook on low heat. Once most of the water evaporates, sprinkle in the dill. Meanwhile, rinse palmini and then add it in. Allow your pasta to cook for about 20 minutes and then add in parmesan cheese! Serve & enjoy :)
Jack's Wife Freda is one of my favorite brunch spots in NYC! Being that going out right now for brunch is out of the question, I just decided to recreate one of my favorite meals! It's perfect to make when you have leftover spaghetti squash so it doesn't require a lot of work!
IN THIS BOWL:
-2 soft boiled eggs
-Tad of feta
Arrange all of your ingredients in a bowl and feel free to add any other leftovers that you may have on hand! I added in beets to my bowl to make it even more delicious!
