Nanna's Pasta Primavera
DELIZIOSO!!!!!!  We made this tonight and I felt like I was eating at an Italian restaurant!! Seriously, this meal tasted as good as it looks.  I don't think the family said one word during dinner tonight because we were so focused on the enjoyment of this meal. This is definitely on TOP of my winner list!!

- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
- 1 tbsp basil (fresh is always better)

Turkey BLT

Turkey BLT.....21 Day Fix Approved!
My kids and I had this for lunch and LOVED it! It was something different than just peanut butter and jelly. They were mad when I topped it off with Greek yogurt, but then took a BITE and said "Mom, it's sooo good!!".  It's much better than using mayo. This will be a once a week lunch for us this summer!
-Whole Wheat Bread
- Oikos Plain Greek Yogurt
- Turkey Bacon
- Turkey Slices
- Provolone Cheese
- Lettuce
- Tomato
- pepper to taste

- Toast the bread lightly in the toaster.
-Place turkey, bacon, cheese, and lettuce on top on the bread.
-Spread yogurt across the sandwich
-Top with tomato and sprinkle with pepper
-Fold in half or top with another piece of bread.
*Avocado would be another healthy fat to spread of top off your sandwich with. Enjoy!

Veggie Bow Tie Pasta Meal!

Bow Tie Pasta With Peas and Tomatoes!

I love pasta, but it's not always easy to make it "clean eating". So I whipped up this meal last night and we all loved it!! I used a can of peas, but I suggest using frozen. There are a variety of ways you can add more flavor to this meal by throwing in Sweet Turkey Italian sausage or chicken. Whatever way you choose, it will taste DELICIOUS and clean!!

1 lb Wheat Bow Tie Pasta
2 cups frozen peas (frozen tastes better)
1 package red cherry tomatoes sliced in half
1 package yellow tomatoes sliced in half
2 cloves fresh garlic
2 tbsp fresh Parsley chopped
Parmesan Cheese 
2 tsp Olive Oil
Sea Salt/Pepper for taste
1. Cook pasta and set aside.
2. Saute the tomatoes, peas and garlic in a skillet with 2 tsp olive oil. 

3. Add cooked pasta, salt, pepper and parsley to the skillet and mix.
4. Cook for 5 minutes.
5. Simmer for 3 minutes.
6. Top off with grated parmasen cheese!

*You can add Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage or Chicken for extra flavor and protein!
