Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 1 ½ lbs. chicken cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 12 oz. andouille link sausage cut into ½-inch slices
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt divided
  • ¾ tsp. pepper divided
  • 2 cups sweet onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup celery finely chopped
  • 1 cup green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp. thyme dried
  • 1 tsp. basil dried
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce gluten free
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 2 ½ cups long grain white rice rinsed and drained
  • 4 ½ - 5 cups chicken broth
  • Fresh parsley finely chopped

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, or Dutch oven, add 1 tablespoon oil, sausage, ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add chicken and continue cooking over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove sausage and chicken from the pot and set aside.
  4. Drizzle another tablespoon of olive oil into the Dutch oven and then add onion, celery and bell pepper. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until vegetables are almost tender. Add garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes.
  5. Place chicken and sausage back into the pot.
  6. In a small bowl combine remaining 1 teaspoon salt, ½ tsp pepper, thyme, basil and cayenne pepper. Toss to combine.
  7. Add seasoning mix, Worcestershire, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes to the meat and veggies. Stir to combine.
  8. Next, place rice and 4 ½ cup broth in the pot. Stir to completely combine. Over medium heat, wait for the ingredients to come to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid, and let jambalaya simmer for 30-40 minutes.
  9. Check on the jambalaya at 25 minutes and see if it needs additional liquid. If you have a pot that burns, this would be a good time to give the bottom of your pot a stir to loosen up any potentially dried rice.
  10. Once rice is completely cooked, serve immediately with fresh parsley and enjoy!

Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread | #Bananabreadrecipehealthy #Healthypumpkinrecipes #Healthypumpkinbread #Cinnamoncrunchbananabread #Flourlessbananabread #Lowcalbananabread #Weightwatchersbananabread #Bananabreadrecipewithapplesauce #Bananabreadwithhoneyandapplesauce #Cinnamoncrunchbananabread #Healthybananabreadrecipe #Bananabreadrecipewithyogurt



Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil or high quality vegetable oil*
  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 ½ medium or 2 large bananas)
  • ¼ cup milk of choice or water
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (NOT baking powder; they aren’t the same!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more to swirl on top
  • 1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • Totally optional: ½ cup mix-ins like chopped walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, raisins, chopped dried fruit, fresh banana slices…


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius) and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the oil and honey together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then whisk in the mashed bananas and milk. (If your coconut oil solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, simply let the bowl rest in a warm place for a few minutes, like on top of your stove, or warm it for about 10 seconds in the microwave.)
  3. Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and whisk to blend. Lastly, switch to a big spoon and stir in the flour, just until combined. Some lumps are ok! If you’re adding any additional mix-ins, gently fold them in now.
  4. Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon. If you’d like a pretty swirled effect, run the tip of a knife across the batter in a zig-zag pattern.
  5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (typically, if I haven’t added any mix-ins, my bread is done at 55 minutes; if I have added mix-ins, it needs closer to 60 minutes). Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
