Yummy Food that's Good for the Family

My kids tend to be picky when it comes to eating healthy and good food. They enjoy junky foods like pizza, nachos, pizza rolls, cheese sticks and so on. They are typical teenagers when it comes to eating food. Since Bo's heart attack last year, we have been trying to eat better as a family. It is very difficult because I am an emotional eater and he loves food. Plus the kids would rather have junk instead good, healthy, and wholesome foods. I have been attempting to eat by the standards of the Beachbody program, the 21 Day Fix. It encourages cleaner eating and not eating as many foods that have unhealthy ingredients in them. We have tried many recipes that I have found many that we have liked.

Last night, we tried an amazing recipe called Egg Rolls in a Bowl.

Jessica at easy living today shared the best egg roll in a bowl recipe. It is here : Egg Roll in a Bowl

If you don't want to click on the site here is the recipe here. It was definitely a hit in the Lindsey house tonight. There were just enough leftovers for me to take to work. 

Egg Roll In a Bowl

  • 1lb lean ground turkey
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
    • (You can use a frozen coleslaw mix for the cabbage/carrots mix instead of chopping it up yourself)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 2 tsp Rice Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. Cook the ground turkey until done and remove from pan, leaving the fat
  2. Add onions and garlic to the pan and sauté until nearly cooked through
  3. Add the cabbage and shredded carrots (or coleslaw mix) and continue to cook about 15 minutes
  4. Mix in cooked ground turkey
  5. Add the Braggs liquid amino’s and rice vinegar
  6. Add salt & pepper to taste
  7. Simmer for about 7 minutes
We doubled the recipe. It was perfect for a family of 5.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
