Easy to make low-carb cucumber rolls with turkey, cheese,
pesto, spinach and veggies! Can easily be made vegetarian. Fun for kids to put
in their own fillings!
3 medium cucumbers (each will yield about 6 slices)
¼ cup store-bought basil pesto
6 slices GO Veggie Lactose & Soy Free Mozzarella Slices,
cut into ½ inch strips
6 oz deli smoked turkey breast, shredded
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced into matchsticks
1/2 cup spinach, shredded
salt and pepper, for seasoning
Slice the cucumbers lengthwise on a mandoline at about a 2mm
setting. If you don’t have a mandoline, you can always use a vegetable peeler.
Place the cucumber slices on parchment paper and pat dry with a paper towel.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto on each cucumber, then
evenly distribute cheese, turkey, bell pepper and spinach on each. Sprinkle
with a little salt and black pepper. Roll up and place seam down. If you want
an even nicer presentation, you can stick a toothpick in the middle for easy
appetizers! Serve with extra pesto or sauce of choice. Makes about 18 rolls.
Can be make a day ahead. Just store in an airtight container

Chicken Sweet Potato Skins
3 medium sweet potatoes
3/4 pound (about 2 small) boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cups olive oil
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
3 whole chipotle pepper, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper
2 (half a 10oz bag) cups spinach
5 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, grated
chopped cilantro, for garnish
greek yogurt, for serving
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash your sweet potatoes
and prick all over with a fork. Place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or
until fork tender. Place your chicken in a baking dish and rub with a
tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in the oven with the potatoes
and bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool and shred the chicken with a fork or
your hands. When the sweet potatoes are done cut in half and allow to cool for
5-10 minutes. In a medium size bowl combine the olive oil, lime juice, garlic,
chipotle peppers, oregano, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat
a small skillet over medium heat and wilt the spinach (this can also be done in
the microwave). Toss the spinach and shredded chicken together, set aside and
keep warm. Turn the oven up to 400 degrees. Scrape the sweet potato out of the
peel, leaving a medium size layer of flesh inside with the peel so that it can
stand up on its own (I reserved the remaining flesh, for another use) and place
in a baking dish. Brush the skins with a little of the chipotle sauce and bake
for 5-10 minutes until nice and crisp. While the skins bake, mix the spinach,
chicken and chipotle sauce together. Remove skins from the oven and stuff with
the chicken mixture, top with shredded cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until
the cheese has melted and the skins are hot and crisp. Serve with fresh chopped
cilantro and greek yogurt if desired.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Serve with your favorite marinara sauce.
Strawberry Footballs (Inflated up to NFL standards)
All you need are strawberries, chocolate candy melts, and
some white sparkle gel!! Microwave the candy melts according to the
instructions on the package, for about 30 seconds at a time stirring until it
is fully melted. Then add just a little bit of vegetable oil to thin it out and
make it easier for dipping. We hand dipped our strawberries and set them on wax
paper to harden. Then just add the lacing detail with the Sparkle Gel and
popped them in the refrigerator to cure up. Super Easy, Super Bowl!!
