Chicken, Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stew

Chicken, Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stew - Mimi's Fit Foods

Yuuuuuummmmm.  This was soooooo tasty!  When I first read about this stew and the blogger said she would give it a 15 out of 10, I was sold!  And, I’m gonna have to totally agree with the rating.  It’s so hearty and I loved the flavor combination of the chicken, butternut squash and quinoa.  I thought the Kalamata olives were a weird addition, but I was too curious to not throw them in.  I’m glad I kept them in the recipe because they give a nice salty and distinct bite to the stew.  The herbs are perfect in here.  There’s a nice dominate oregano flavor and the fresh parsley gives it that perfect finish.

It’s gotten really cold around these parts and this stew was perfect on a cold night.  I can’t WAIT to eat the leftovers.  This is for sure jumping to the top of my list of cold-weather favorites!

Chicken, Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stew
Adapted from Cookin’ Canuck

2 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded & chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
4 cups chicken broth (99% Fat Free)
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 can (14 oz) petite diced tomatoes
2/3 cup uncooked quinoa
3/4 cup pitted and quartered kalamata olives
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley

Steam the butternut squash until barely tender, about 10 minutes. Remove half of the squash pieces and set aside.

Steam the remaining squash until very tender, an additional 4 to 6 minutes. Mash this squash with the back of a fork. Set aside.

In a large saucepan set over medium-high heat, bring the chicken broth to a simmer.  Add chicken breasts, cover, and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.  Transfer the chicken to a plate and allow to cool. Pour broth into a medium-sized bowl.

Return the saucepan to the stovetop and lower heat to medium. Add olive oil.  Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is starting to turn brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the salt, minced garlic and oregano. Cook, stirring, for 1 additional minute.

To the saucepan, add tomatoes, butternut squash pieces, mashed butternut squash. Stir to combine.

Stir in reserved chicken broth and quinoa. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the quinoa turns translucent, about 15 minutes.

Shred the chicken with your fingers or a fork.

Stir the chicken, olives and pepper into the stew and simmer, uncovered, to heat, about 5 minutes.

Stir in parsley and serve.

Herb Roasted Chicken Breast With Butternut Squash

Herb Roasted Chicken with Butternut Squash - Mimi's Fit Foods

This dish SCREAMS fall!  We’re talking herbs, chicken and squash.  Butternut squash . . . my fave!  Everything here has a nice, fresh rosemary undertone while letting all the natural flavors of each ingredient shine through.  The chicken also has a nice apricot glaze which complements the rosemary and squash beautifully!  This meal comes together quick and I am a big fan of quick these days!  I love that I can cook my protein and my carbohydrate at the same time and all I have to do is prepare a veggie while the main stuff is in the oven.

This meal would be good whenever, but we had it on a nice fall evening and we definitely left the dinner table feeling all nice and cozy inside.

Fresh Green Bean Salad With Balsamic Dressing

Fresh Green Bean Salad with Balsamic Dressing - Mimi's Fit Foods

Okay.  Let’s get back to fall.  In reality, this dish is perfect year-round, but I’m sharing it this week because I think it would make a fabulous side dish at Thanksgiving.  I’m always looking for healthy side dishes for the holidays and since green beans seem to make an appearance at most Thanksgiving dinner tables, I thought I would share a very YUMMY (and healthy) way to make them this year.

This green bean salad is to-die-for.  Yes, I’m serious.  You’re probably thinking that there’s no way that green beans would ever be considered to-die-for, but guess what!?  You’re totally wrong because I found this recipe and it completely qualifies!  I made a fancy dinner to go alongside these babies and the green beans totally won my hubby over.  Hands down, he said this salad was the best part of the meal.  And, he doesn’t even really like green beans!  So, that’s saying something HUGE!

The green beans are cooked so they are crisp-tender, then placed in an ice bath to stop them from cooking (which also keeps their color a nice, vibrant green) and cools them down.  They are mixed with the grape tomatoes and then drizzled with a simple balsamic dressing.  Just before serving, feta cheese is mixed throughout.  The result . . . delicious, crisp-tender green beans that want you going back for more and more and more and . . . well, you get the idea!  It’s just so good and fresh and flavorful!

Besides being down-right delicious, the salad is pretty too!  I think it is totally worthy for holiday meals and it’s also WAY easy to throw together for any weeknight meal too.  Thus, it’s a recipe to keep in your back pocket.  Right!?

A couple of tips for the beans.  I bought mine at Costco and they were of the best quality.  You can usually find them in your local grocery store (produce section) too.  When cooking the beans, you want to cook them to the tenderness you prefer.  However, you don’t want to let them over-cook or they’ll be mushy and not so awesome.  I prefer mine slightly on the crisp side, so I cooked mine for about 7 minutes.  I wouldn’t cook yours longer than 10.  And, don’t forget to have your ice bath ready because you’ll need to transfer them right to the ice bath after cooking.

Now start planning to make the best green bean recipe you’ve tried in years (or in forever!).

Fresh Green Bean Salad with Balsamic Dressing2 - Mimi's Fit Foods

Fresh Green Bean Salad With Balsamic Dressing
Adapted from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed if desired
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
pepper, to taste
2 ounces reduced fat feta cheese

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.  Add 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Cook green beans until tender, 5-10 minutes.

While they cook, prepare a large bowl with an ice water bath.  Immediately drain the beans into a colander and place the drained beans in the ice water for a few minutes to stop the cooking.  (This will keep them bright green and perfectly tender.)

Drain the beans and pat them dry.  Toss them in a bowl with the tomatoes.

For the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and pepper.  Pour the mixture over the green beans and toss to coat.  Cover the bowl and chill for at least an hour or up to 3 hours before ready to serve.

Stir in the feta cheese right before serving.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Polynesian Salad With Shrimp and Pineapple Vinaigrette

Polynesian Salad - Mimi's Fit Foods

I’m back!  I’ve been on a little (well, kinda huge to our little family) vacation to none other than Hawaii.  This was our first “big” vacation with the baby in tow, and we managed to get through the airport, survive the flights, and have a wonderful time on the island of Oahu.

Hawaii-Mimi's Fit Foods

While this was my view every day from our beach house, I also tried some delicious food (of course!).  One of the spots we frequented was a burger spot in Laie called Seven Brothers and I got myself a salad on our first visit.  The cashier said it was the most popular salad on the menu, so I ordered the Polynesian Salad.  You guys!  It was sooooo good!  In fact, I loved it so much that I had it three times while I was in Hawaii and it was what I chose for my “last meal” before I flew home.  I’m not trying to be dramatic, but I seriously couldn’t get enough of the yummy salad.

So, while I enjoyed my “last meal” I carefully studied the salad and its flavors so I could try to recreate it at home.  I’ve done it, my friends!  I’ve seriously done it!  When I sat down to eat this for dinner I could almost hear the waves crashing in the background . . . it took me right back to Laie.  It has fabulous texture thanks to the crunch you get from the carrots, cabbage, and nuts.  It also has a balanced sweetness with the grilled pineapple and the coconut.  And the dressing . . . yeah, this is what takes it over the top.  It has a distinct pineapple taste with a slight edge of sophistication because of Blue Cheese.

The Seven Brothers restaurant does not serve their salad with shrimp (although you can add fish to your salad if you want), but I thought shrimp was the perfect addition for a healthy protein.  It was a fabulous compliment to the sweet pineapple flavors found throughout.

Again, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but this salad is absolutely amazing.  I know it doesn’t scream “Autumn,” so perhaps you might think the timing of putting it on the blog is a little off, but it is the BEST thing I could bring home to you all from Hawaii (trust me . . . you would WAY rather have this than one of those cheap key chains from the Swap Meet).  You’re going to love it and so will everyone else who gets a taste.

Aloha!

Polynesian Salad With Shrimp and Pineapple Vinaigrette 

For the Salad:
12 cups (or 16 oz.) mixed greens (I used a Spring mix)
3 medium carrots, chopped fine
2 cups red cabbage, chopped fine
6 fresh pineapple rings, 1/4 thick
24 ounces shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 1/2 oz. macadamia nuts, toasted
1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons shredded coconut

For the Dressing:
1/2 cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons agave (or honey)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
salt and pepper to taste

For the salad:
Combine mixed greens, carrots, and cabbage in a large bowl.  Set aside.

Prepare grill by heating to medium (I used an indoor grill, AKA my George Foreman).  Oil grill grates.  Place pineapple on grill and grill for approximately 3-5 minutes per side, until tender and golden.  Remove from grill and cut into chunks.

If desired, season shrimp with salt and pepper (to taste).  Place on grill and grill for approximately 2 minutes per side, or until shrimp is completely pink/white and it curls up a bit.  Remove from grill and set aside.

If serving for a large crowd, wait for pineapple and shrimp to cool to room temperature and then gently toss with mixed greens.  Add toasted macadamia nuts and coconut and evenly toss.  Serve with dressing.  (Recipe makes enough for 6 good sized dinner portions and would probably serve at least 10-12 people as a side dish.)

If serving individual plates (which I mostly do at home), place approximately 3 cups of greens on a plate, top with pineapple chunks (from one ring), approximately 4 ounces of shrimp (which was about 8-10 of my medium shrimp), 1 tablespoon of nuts, and 2 tablespoons of coconut.  Serve with 2 1/2 tablespoons of dressing.

Serves 6.

For the Dressing:
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Serves 6.

**Notes about this salad:  The macadamia nuts are high in calories.  If you omit them altogether, you’ll save yourself 80 calories and 9 grams of fat per serving.  They aren’t the healthiest nut to have around, but they are truly Hawaiian so I left them in the recipe.  Omit them if you’re really watching your food intake.  Also, I used fresh pineapple, but I’m sure canned would work in a pinch (and for the dressing you can use the drained pineapple juice from the can).

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie - Mimi's Fit Foods

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!  Now we get to look forward to Thanksgiving.  What better way to do so than with Pumpkin Pie, I ask?

Here’s a great way to get your protein shake in while TOTALLY appreciating the flavors of pumpkin pie!  It’ll make you feel all cozy on a fall or winter day.  The smoothie surprisingly tastes a whole lot like pumpkin pie and leaves you with that sweet and decadent flavor.  I gotta admit that my favorite part of the smoothie is the the chunks of graham crackers found throughout.  I love the flavor and the crunch.

I’m so happy that I’ve found a way to enjoy pumpkin pie in a healthy and balanced nutrition sort-of-way.  Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Skeleton Veggie Tray

Skeleton Veggie Tray - Mimi's Fit Foods

Ok, folks!  The Halloween parties are in full swing for us, so I’m guessing they are for you too!  One of the tips I suggest to my clients when going to parties is to offer to take something healthy that you know you can/should eat.  I mean, let’s be honest.  When we show up to parties there is always a lot of fun food that is loaded with fats and or sugars (admittedly they are usually way yummy, but not good for the belly/hips/thighs . . . ya know!?).  So, I always like to play it safe by taking something healthy that I know I can eat.

A veggie tray is alway a good solution.  However, it can be BORING.  Well, it doesn’t have to be boring for Halloween!  I found this fun way to amp up the fun with a typical veggie tray.  I took this to a family Halloween pot-luck party last weekend and it was eaten up in minutes.  There was another large veggie tray there too, but it had hardly been touched.  I’m still kind of sitting here amazed that the skeleton trick won over the kiddos and got them to eat their veggies.  They seriously ate it up (literally and figuratively).

I made the protein-packed dip from cottage cheese.  If you haven’t made the Fit Ranch Dip/Dressing  yet, you must!  (You will also deceive your little and big people with this dip.)

Hopefully this gives you a fun idea on how to fill up your belly with veggies instead of Halloween candy.  Have fun at all your parties and be safe!

Sweet Mustard and Rosemary Chicken

Sweet Mustard and Rosemary Chicken - Mimi's Fit Foods

Mmmmmmm!  This recipe is yummy to have any time, but it was so perfect for an Autumn dinner.  It’s that combination of sweet and spicy and then topped with fresh herbs.  This chicken definitely has a mustard flavor, but I dare say that it’s perfectly balanced (and toned down) with the aid of maple syrup and brown sugar.  It cooks for less than 30 minutes and then you top it with the magical power of fresh rosemary!  Yeah, I said magical!  The rosemary makes ALL the difference in this recipe and it’s a MUST!  It brings the chicken to an entirely different level . . . . a magical level.

When I first saw the recipe I knew I had to try it.  Not only were the reviews awesome, but mustard is such a low-calorie condiment.  I knew that if I was going to make chicken with a sauce that wouldn’t pack on the extra calories, this was going to be a good one!

We ate this alongside Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa, but it’s simple enough to be eaten with any typical side dish (baked potatoes, rice, etc.).  I loved how quickly this came together and I’m guessing we’ll be eating a lot more Sweet Mustard and Rosemary Chicken in the weeks/years to come!

Sweet Mustard and Rosemary Chicken
Slightly Adapted from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

3/4 cup spicy brown mustard (I used French’s)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (I used Grade B)
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 pounds skinless chicken breasts (4-8 depending on size)
salt and pepper
fresh rosemary for garnish

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Lightly coat a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the mustard, maple syrup, brown sugar and red wine vinegar.  Set aside.

Arrange the chicken in the prepared baking dish with the chicken pieces not touching – just a little space between each.  Liberally salt and pepper both sides of each chicken breast.

Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken, lifting the chicken here and there to allow the sauce to spread underneath the chicken.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove the pan from teh oven and carefully spoon some of the sauce from the bottom of the pan onto each chicken breast.  Cook for 8-12 minutes more until the sauce is bubbly and the chicken is cooked through (will register 165 on an instant read thermometer).  Don’t over bake!  Just get that chicken perfectly nice and juicy.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with freshly chopped rosemary.  Serve immediately.

Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa

Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa - Mimi's Fit Foods

You guys!  This is such a yummy side dish.  We all loved it at first bite!  If you love quinoa, it’s a no-brainer.  If you don’t love quinoa, well this might just be the recipe to change your mind.  You’re probably thinking, “Come on.  How awesome can quinoa get with the addition of cauliflower and cheese?”  Well, let me tell you!  It gets pretty darn awesome!  Think cheesy cauliflower with the creamy texture of quinoa thrown in.  I guess I just needed a good excuse to find cheesy cauliflower legit in a healthy way.  I totally feel 100% okay with getting my cheesy cauliflower fix with this yummy dish.  We’re totally addicted and we might end up having this more than once or twice a week now.

Cheesy Cauliflower Quinoa
Adapted from Mom, What’s For Dinner?

DIY Microwave Popcorn with Coconut Oil

DIY Microwave Popcorn - Mimi's Fit Foods

Popcorn is one of our most favorite low-calorie treats.  We love the flavor and the crunch.  That all being said, I hate to get out the air-popper all the time and sometimes the store-bought microwaved stuff doesn’t really pop all that well (I swear I burn it more than I don’t!).  Besides that, it isn’t all natural . . . just look at your label next time.

I ran across this option to microwave my own popcorn and just had to try it!  It works so well and now we pop our popcorn like this 99% of the time. It’s fast, easy, and all natural.  I opt to use Coconut Oil rather than any other oils because the health benefits of this oil outweigh all the others.  I also find the results are a little better when I use the bigger lunch bag (Approx. 13″ tall by 8″ wide), but have also made it in a traditional lunch bag (Approx. 10″ tall by 5″ wide) with okay results.

Along with my love of popcorn, my little baby also LOVES popcorn and constantly asks for “pop pop” when it’s snack time (she couldn’t even wait 2 seconds for me to take a picture before she stuck her cute, little hand in for a taste).  I am always happy to oblige to her request!  Give it a whirl! You’ll love it too!

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup corn kernels

Melt coconut oil in a small bowl (takes about 1 minute on 1/3 power in the microwave).  Add salt and kernels to the oil and stir to coat kernels.  Drop kernels into a paper lunch bag, fold over twice and microwave for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes.  (Cooking time will vary based on your microwave.  I like to cook mine for 1 1/2 minutes.  I still end up with a few extra un-popped kernals, but I never burn my popcorn.)  Add additional salt if desired.

Grilled Peaches With a Raspberry-Lime Marinade

Grilled Peaches With a Raspberry-Lime Marinade - Mimi's Fit Foods

Have you ever had grilled peaches before?  They are delicious and make such a sweet little dessert without loads of calories.  We have them every fall when the peaches are in season.  I tried this new variation of them and they turned out so awesome.  The peaches get to take a 30-60 minute soak in a flavorful marinade made up of brown sugar, lime juice, and raspberries.  Holy moly!  So good, right!?  This marinade just adds an extra fabulous layer of taste to the grilled peaches and we were all smitten at our house.

The grilled peaches are delicious plain (well, topped with a little extra marinade, of course) . . . especially if you’re using them for a side dish.  If you want to take them to an extra dessert-ish level, you can add ice cream.  We totally did this (because, why not!?) and we chose to top our peaches with Dryer’s Slow Churned Frozen Vanilla Yogurt.  YUM!

Grilled Peaches With a Raspberry-Lime Marinade Frozen Yogurt - Mimi's Fit Foods

Grilled Peaches With a Raspberry-Lime Marinade
Adapted from sparkrecipes.com

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (usually 1 lime)
1 cup fresh raspberries
5 medium unpeeled peaches, halved and pitted
(vegetable oil to coat the grill)

Comine sugar and lime juice in a shallow dish; mix well.  Add 1/2 of the raspberries and mash.

Add peach halves, turning to coat and marinate at room temperature, cut sides down for 30-60 minutes.

Clean and pre-heat grill to a medium-high heat.  Coat grill rack with oil and place peaches cut sides down (save marinade).  Turn peaches over after two minutes, reduce heat to low-medium, then cook for another 15 minutes or until tender, basting once with half of the reserved marinade.  Remove from grill.

Stir remaining raspberries into reserved marinade and spoon over peach halves.  Serve warm (and top with your choice of ice cream, if desired).
