Before I head off to Florida to attend some fitness business seminars I wanted to share with you some super healthy snacks that I had this weekend AND a quick and healthy recipe that only requires 2 ingredients!
…On Saturday night we headed over to my parents for some HNIC. HNIC is a Canadian tradition and stands for Hockey Night In Canada which airs on CBC for any of you south of the border.
My beloved Pittsburgh Penguins (defending Stanley Cup Champs) played and beat the Toronto Maple “Laughs… I mean Leafs 4-1.
But instead of the regular gut busting sport time munchies like chips and wingswe had two “Super Snacks” that tastes great and is great for you!
Wild Spicy Elk Sausage and Smoked Wild Arctic Char…
This was my first time trying Elk Sausage as Caribou and Moose is more common in our province. The Elk came from Alberta.
The Arctic Char was local and is a lot like the more common smoked salmon.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of trying to eat wild and local whenever possible to obtain the enormous health benefits of naturally wild foods.
These super snacks were given to us from friends and is a lean source of high quality protein rich in omega 3 fats which help fight inflammation in the body and actually help to burn fat.
But they also taste great!
…and speaking of sausage I got another quick and healthy recipe that you can try this week that to keep you fitter in 2010.
I know you probably don’t want to see another Turkey for awhile after the holidays but that doesn’t mean you have to turn away every recipe with the word Turkey!
So here is a simple healthy recipe for Turkey Sausage Stir-Fry that can be whipped up and on the dinner table in 20 minutes and it’s so simple even a Turkey can do itno offense…
It only requires 2 ingredients so I don’t even know if you can call this a recipe.
It’s just a damn tasty and healthy meal that you can feed your family without having to worry about all the heart pounding fat and nitrites found it regular sausage.
Here is what I used:
1 pkg of Lilydale Tailgate Italian Turkey Sausage (hot)
1 bag of Artic Garden’s frozen mixed veggies (Thai)
For the sausages: Pre-heat skillet over medium heatthen add sausages and 250ML (1 cup) of water. Cover and heat for 10 minutesturning sausages once. Remove coverand cook until golden brown (Approximately 10 minutes).
Slice up sausages and set aside.
For the veggies: Pour vegetables in a microwaveable dish with 1/4 cup of water. Add vegetables. Cook in microwave on high power for recommended time.
Throw cooked sausage slices and cooked veggies back in skillet and stir and fry for a couple minutes.
That’s it. Serve and relish in the applause coming from the family dinner table!
