Yummy Healthy Stuff #4

Turkey Sausage, Potato & Spinach Skillet
I pinned this idea for a meal a while back and am so glad I got around to making it.  It came together in about 15-20 minutes and was flavorful and filling.  You just dice your red potatoes, season them however you like and toss them in a lightly oiled skillet (use olive oil-it's good for you).  Cook them until they can be pierced with a fork (about 15 minutes or so).  I usually put a top on the skillet for half of that time to speed things up.  Cut your turkey sausage link while that is cooking.  I used Butterball Smoked Turkey Sausage.  Then toss the sausage and a bunch of baby spinach in the pan.  Stir it around until it is all wilty and perfect (about 5 minutes or less).  I used 4 smallish red potatoes, one sausage link and 2-3 handfuls of spinach and it made 2 servings.

Cottage Cheese Scrambled Egg on English Muffin with Jelly

This was too good.  I used one egg and threw in a heaping tablespoon of fat free cottage cheese.  The cottage cheese made the egg super rich and cheesy.  So perfect on a 100 calorie English muffin with reduced sugar grape jelly.  

I've also been enjoying another breakfast food, mixed in with my Kashi Go Lean: Peanut Butter Cheerios!!!  And they are multi-grain.  Be still, my heart.

I've kind of gotten into the whole "teaser" effect in my healthy posts as of late, so this is no exception.  I made a Skinny Cake Mix Cookie.  Oh, it is so perfect.  Check back with me for the full details on Monday!

Bonus:  Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of Ranch seasoning is the cat's pajamas.  Just thought you should know.

Have a super fun weekend!
