Tart Cherry and Walnut Granola

To be honest I have made granola as long as I can remember because it was a staple my mom made, so usually I just toss in ingredients without measuring but here is a good breakdown of what I do.


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup flaxseed, ground (better absorption)
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil or coconut oil (I use a blend)
  • ¾ cup Honey


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients, except the oil and honey. In a small sauce pan heat the oil and honey until just bubbling. On a baking sheet with parchment paper, spread evenly on the sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Skillet Beef/Turkey Patties

Always a great make ahead protein for the week, whether it is lean beef, turkey, chicken, or bison. It will be an easy protein add-in for your lunches and/or dinners.

Makes: 6 patties


  • 1 lb lean ground meat (Beef, Turkey, Bison, Chicken)
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil for pan frying


Mix all ingredients except oil and meat together. For better flavor, sauté the vegetables first for 7 minutes over medium heat in a skillet. Return to the mixing bowl and add the meat with salt and pepper to taste. Form into 6 equal patties. return to pre-heated skillet (medium heat) and cook about 5 minutes each side.

Easy meal prep ideas with patties:

  • Steamed brown rice with chopped lettuce and a turkey patty with feta cheese.
  • Salad bowl with chopped fresh seasonal vegetables and patties with balsamic dressing, avocado, dried cranberries, and chopped almonds.
  • Roasted root vegetable medley (beets, carrots, sweet potato) with a patty on top.
  • Steamed brown rice and chopped spinach/lettuce with cucumber, carrot, patties and tatziki sauce.

Mediterranean Bowl

Sometimes it’s just throw whatever I have in my fridge together and add a sauce for my lunch the next day, sometimes it’s weird, and sometimes it’s great. This one was a hit so I am sharing.

Makes: 2


  • ½ pound lean ground turkey (organic)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ red onion
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 packet Seeds of Change brown rice (or 1 cupcooked brown rice)
  • 1 head of loose leaf lettuce
  • ½ cucumber chopped
  • ½ cup craisins
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 container tzatziki sauce
  • 1 cup roasted butternut squash


In a frying pan, heat avocado oil with chopped garlic and onion. Cook until soft. Add the turkey meat and cook until there is no pink. Set aside.

Microwave the instant rice pack for 2 minutes. (or use your pre-made rice)

I had leftover butternut squash from earlier this week. You can omit or cook it up (start with this first if you need to). Roast cubed squash for 30-40 minutes at 400 in avocado oil and salt and pepper.

Layer rice, turkey, and squash in a bowl. Top with cucumber, avocado, craisins, tzatziki sauce, and chopped lettuce.
