Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burgers

Today’s recipe is essentially a scrumptious ode to our girl, Gaby Dalkin– the genius angel behind Whats Gaby Cooking. We got her cookbook a few months ago (and met her in person…. and freaked out over it). This recipe jumped out to us immediately, so we decided to give it a slight twist and make it our own. The recipe is only available in her cookbook, but you can find our version below! We made the balsamic onions she had in her book as a side as well, which offered the perfect flavor combination with the patty. Our version has more sun-dried tomatoes and spinach than her recipe, and we omitted the parmesan cheese. Stalk her online, ogle over her perfect food blog and then make this recipe. In that order.

Slow Cooker Chipotle Shredded Chicken

Here’s a little brain teaser for you: what are two things we love deary and do everything in our power to seek? Convenience, and chipotle sauce. Seriously, we are all about convenient recipes. Having easy recipes ensures we can constantly switch up our meal prep, yet ensures we actually stick to a healthy eating routine. As an added bonus, we love when something is versatile, so we do not get tired of eating it throughout the week.

Paleo Chicken Tenders

Chicken nugget lovers, REJOICE. It’s no secret that we love food, and when that food is a childhood staple like a nug, we can’t help but love those, too. Did any one ever eat a Dino Chicken Nugget as a kid? The 90s moms we knew definitely had a box of these in the freezer at all times. There is something so satisfying about nuggets, but when it comes to their nutritional value, they are a little less appealing considering they are usually deep fried and made of processed ingredients. Not to worry– we are serving up a paleo chicken tender made from real ingredients while still being incredibly delicious and satisfying.

Wild Rice Salad

Salad is definitely a love-hate food for most people. It is certainly not one of those foods that makes you stop and cry out, “MMM, delicious”– unless of course you are like us, and have come to really embrace and enjoy life as a chunky salad eater. However, this particular recipe takes a carb-rich approach to the salad, making it truly MMM, delicious and healthy, all in one.

Honey Baked Ham

Turkey is to Thanksgiving as Honey Baked Ham is to Christmas! We wanted to bring our readers an extra special and cozy recipe… and not to mention delicious. Our families have always had a traditional Christmas meal, which always includes a honey baked ham. The best thing about this recipe is that it is so tasty standalone, and can also be used for many easy leftover meals, too. Kings Hawaiian rolls, anyone? We promise this classic recipe is not as intimidating as it seems, and challenge you to give it a try. And for anyone who has ever asked, “Is Honey Baked Healthy?” we have you covered with the nutrition information.  Continue reading

White Chicken Enchilada Cauliflower Casserole

Casserole. Was this a word that struck fear into your heart as a child? Why is it that we associate this word with some suspect looking, mushy nightmare from our youth, even if our grandmothers DID make it with love? We are going to vanquish your fear of this word, and maybe just maybe completely reshape the way you feel about it, too.

Turkey Butternut Squash Chili

We live in Phoenix, Arizona, which means we have about a 9 day window every year to enjoy true winter recipes, since it will actually be cold enough for a brief, sweet window of time. Within this tiny window, we embrace the chunky side of life. Chunky sweaters, a chunky boot and sock combo, and the glaringly obvious: chunky chili. Chunk-less chili is a depressing oxymoron of sorts, and we are not having it. Naturally, we want to have a health conscious and filling recipe that still hits the comfort food craving.  Continue reading

Lemon Ricotta Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Spinach

We are clearly on a fall flavor kick here on A Healthy Hint. Squash is a staple fall vegetable choice for us, but spaghetti squash in particular is something we feature in our recipes year-round. This is because we are carb hounds and love a good noodle dish… and our guess is that 9 out of 10 of you feel the same way! However, despite our love for pasta, it is not a meal we usually find ourselves eating and consider a hearty pasta dish more of a cheat meal for us, personally. That left us with a little problem: how can we go about satisfying our pasta cravings without sacrificing our target daily carb intake? Solution: spaghetti squash. This vegetable is such an easy one to make, and still has a ‘noodle-like’ texture which hits the spot for us when we are meal prepping.

Thai Chicken Zoodle Salad

In 2016, we discovered a beautiful little invention called the Spiralizer, and thus our love for zucchini was born. We went a little nuts creating pasta recipes with spiralized zucchini, or zoodles, instead of noodles. Nowadays, you can find pre spiralized vegetables everywhere, but the zucchini noodles are still our day one ride or die- and as a little knowledge bomb for you- they are actually a fruit instead of a veggie, botanically. They can be cooked or eaten raw, giving your dish great texture and color. Beyond that, they are full of health benefits while still keeping your meal interesting.
