Pumpkin Spice Latte Shake

Every year at this time pumpkin spice seems to pop up everywhere. I love it!! But they always seem t be calorie packed with loads of sugar. My mission was to come up with a tasty treat for my taste buds, and always great if it can be mixed with my Shakeology! I have hit the jackpot with this one. There are sooo many ideas floating around online, and this seems to be the sum of them all. All the flavour without all the added calories. Even better!

Recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte Shake

1 scp vanilla Shakeology
2 tbsp pumpkin spice puree
4-5 ice cubes
1 cup vanilla almond milk
½ cup water
1 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning

Happy fall and enjoy all the pumpkin spice you can get.

Italian Sausage Baked Zucchini

If you like  Italian sausage and zucchini, I have the recipe for you. I'm really trying to expand my clean eating menu and have resolved to try something new each week. Along the way I'll share all my recipes with you, Hope you enjoy!

This one was so delish that I had to have seconds. And why the heck not, it's super healthy!! For this dish I used mild sausage, but you are more than welcome to spice it up with hot hot hot! I also used Pice de Gallo from Costco, but I'm sure salsa would work too. Other than that, I let the sausage do the flavouring. This was one savoury dish!

Recipe for Italian Sausage Baked Zucchini

3 medium zucchini
3 Italian sausage
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup pico de gallo
shredded cheddar cheese

1. Set oven to 350
2. Remove peal on sausage and cook in pan
3. Add speg sauce and pico de gallo, continue to cook 
4. Slice zucchinni and spoon sausage mixture on top
5. Top with cheddar cheese
6. Bake for 35 minutes

I think I'm actually going to look for other veggies I can eat this topping on. First try, spaghetti squash.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Let me know what you think..

I found this awesome recipe on Pinterest, made a few tweaks and it is so delish!! Honestly, I'm a really horrible cook with a small menu. LOL. So my goal this month is to try new, clean and 21day fix approved meals. Which really isn't too hard with the overflowing amount of recipes on Pinterest, for inspiration. So here's my take on it!
I love all three things in this recipe: spicy, chicken and sweet potatoes!!

2 chicken breasts
6 slices of turkey bacon diced
2 sweet potatoes
green onions
1 tsp paprika
1tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp sriracha
salt and pepper
1. Dice and fry up turkey bacon in frying pan and set aside
2. In bowl combine paprika, garlic, sriracha, salt and pepper
3. Toss in diced chicken and sweet potato, mix well till evenly coated
4. Place in baking dish and cook 55 minutes
5. When complete top with turkey bacon and green onions
Enjoy!! if you like it hot hot, double the hot sauce to your liking. I found this recipe zippy, but not HOT, if that makes sense
