Easy Chicken Stir Fry with Power Blend Superfood

This stir fry is quick and easy to make especially when using a pre-packaged superfood mix! I used the above Power Blend Superfood Mix to make this stir fry a powerhouse of nutrition.

To make this stir fry gluten and soy free I used coconut aminos.

Air-fried Sweet Potato Fries - crispy on the outside, tender on the inside!

Using an air fryer is so easy and I have decided it is a must have item in my kitchen. It allows me to have crispy fried treats like these sweet potato fries without using all the oil that you normally would need to use to get them crisp.

Air Fryer 101

There are so many air fryers to pick from on Amazon so I decided to go with the top rated one that was within my budget. This one is an Avalon Bay Air Fryer. It’s super easy to use and the clean up is a breeze. The outside doesn’t get hot to the touch either. There is a vent on the back side that blows out hot air, but it isn’t enough to heat your kitchen up like an oven does.

You need to use an oil sprayer. I originally used my Spectrum coconut oil spray, but I wanted to be able to use avocado or olive oil for the flavor so I ordered a set of these Evo Oil Sprayers. I had a refillable oil mister several years ago, but I wasn’t impressed with how it worked, but these sprayers work great.

Crispy Air-Fried Sweet Potato Fries

Tips on getting your sweet potato fries crispy!

  • Soaking the fries in ice water and then patting them dry are important steps. Soaking in ice water removes some of the starch and then patting them dry keeps the fries from steaming, both of these steps helps the fries become crisp.
  • Don’t overcrowd your food in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of the basket you may need to do more than one batch.
  • Be sure to put a light sprinkling of pepper on your food when you need to turn it over half way through cooking. When it’s time to turn the pepper on your food will help you be able to see which ones still need turning.

Air-Fried Sweet Potato Fries
  • Author: MamaShire
  • Prep Time: 65 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

1 medium sweet potato
avocado or olive oil
salt & pepper

Instructions

Peel sweet potato and slice into thick slices and then cut those in half lengthwise. You can cut these thinner if you prefer, but I found a little thicker slice ended up with a nice crunch on the outside and tender on the inside.

Soak fries in a large bowl of ice water for 1 hour. Remove and pat dry with a towel or several paper towels.

Place fries in air fryer basket. Spread out in single layer. Spritz with avocado or olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper.

Cook in air fryer at 350° for 10 minutes.

Turn fries and spritz again with oil and more salt & pepper.

Cook for 7-8 minutes.

Spritz again with oil. Cook for 5-8 minutes more, but begin checking them every couple of minutes for doneness.

Notes

Soaking the fries in ice water and then patting them dry are important steps. Soaking in ice water removes some of the starch and then patting them dry keeps the fries from steaming, both of these steps helps the fries become crisp.

Try not to overcrowd. Depending on the size of the basket you may need to do more than one batch.

When you are turning your fries over the light sprinkling of pepper will help you know which fry has been turned over.

I wanted you to have a visual of what to look for when you’re buying gluten-free ingredients.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili Ingredients

 

All but one of these products has “gluten free” labeled directly on their label. They do a great job and it makes my job at the grocery store so much easier! Thank you!

See that little bottle of McCormick’s Chili Powder….the one that doesn’t have a red circle showing off the wonderful “gluten free” label. In a situation like this, looking on the company’s website is the next best thing to see if it’s gluten free or not.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili. Ground beef being rinsed with hot water.

If you’re following Trim Healthy Mama, you know that you want to separate your carbs (E meals) and fats (S Meals) for your meals. When I use ground beef in an E meal (a meal that contains a healthy amount of carbs) I will rinse off the cooked beef with hot water to rinse off any extra fat. In the picture above I’m using hot water from my tea kettle to do the rinsing.

Easy Gluten-Free Chili

This is such an easy meal to put together and you could certainly use an Instant Pot to cook it in, but putting it in a big pot like this one and using my stove top doesn’t take long at all. I usually brown the ground beef in my big 6-quart Lodge Dutch oven and then rinse it off, put it back in the pot with all the other ingredients and let it cook for about 20-25 minutes. Of course, you can let it simmer for much longer if you like, but after 20 or so minutes it’s ready. After browning the beef you could also put all the ingredients in a slow cooker for on low for 4 hours.

This quick and easy single serve gluten-free chocolate lava cake may not look too exciting when it first comes out of the air fryer, but be assured there’s lots of yumminess just under the surface! If you don’t have an air fryer this could also be baked in an oven. I love being able to use the air fryer for single serve desserts like this one and not have to heat up the big oven, though. I use an Avalon Bay Air Fryer, it’s simple to use, is reasonably priced, and has great reviews on Amazon. And yes, you could use a microwave in even shorter amount of time, but I haven’t had one for years and I like how the air fryer bakes this cake.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

These tasty asparagus spears are so simple to make. I’ve made these in the oven before, but using the Air Fryer makes it even quicker and easier. There is no need to preheat the oven, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like an oven does, and one of my favorite reasons to use the air fryer is the ease of clean-up. The inside basket and base basket are light weight and a breeze to clean.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

Lightly spritz the asparagus with avocado oil or olive oil using an oil spritzer like this Evo Oil Sprayer. I bought this set of two when I bought the air-fryer and I really like how easy they are to use. (As of today, June 26, there is a coupon for $4 off the set on Amazon when you purchase, just be sure to click the coupon to apply it to your order. )

You could also cut your asparagus up into smaller lengths, but I really like how dramatic they look long. Ha.

This recipe makes it easy for me to get more vegetables in my diet. I made the green beans and sausage recipe in my Instant Pot while the asparagus was cooking in my Air Fryer and it was all so easy and the kitchen didn’t get hot at all.

Now that summer’s in full swing and the temperatures are warming up, we’ve been enjoying these frosty orange drinks almost everyday. It’s so nice to come in from working outside and be able to quickly make this drink to cool off. It tastes like an orange julius from that popular ice cream fast food chain.

I add a scoop of collagen peptides to this drink to get some extra protein and health benefits in my diet, but if I’m planning on sharing this drink with one of my daughters, I’ll add 2 scoops to make sure we both get a good serving of collagen.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Another thing I love about this drink is that by adding in the orange with lots of the white pith still attached it provides more than a full serving of vitamin C. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m much more likely to drink this fun drink than to peel an orange and eat it. I quarter the orange and run a paring or tomato knife just under the peel to leave as much of the white pith on as possible. When I’ve got all the other ingredients mixed up, I’ll add the orange quarters to the blender with the ice cubes. Pour into a quart jar or two pint jars. Enjoy and be refreshed!

These stainless steel straws make it easy to make your drink extra special and you won’t ever run out of those plastic straws.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Step by step pictures and instructions on how to cut and cook a spaghetti squash in the oven and in the Instant Pot. Easy to make ahead for quick dinners. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

(Some links in this post may be my affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.)

I remember the first time I tried a spaghetti squash I was perplexed at how hard it was and really didn’t know how to cut it open. So I pulled out my big butcher knife and called my husband into the kitchen and asked him to take care of it. He did and then I baked it up and we had the first of many wonderful meals featuring spaghetti squash.

As time went on I realized I needed to be able to cut that hard spaghetti squash myself and so I searched for the best way to cut one and this method is now my go to way to cut it open. It’s actually super easy and we never really needed that big ole’ knife after all.

Supplies needed:

A small paring knife (I love and use this one daily)
Cutting board
Large spoon and bowl for the seeds
Cooking spray (I use these spray bottles to spray my oil)
Baking pan for baking in the oven or use an Instant Pot

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Hold onto one end of the spaghetti squash, keeping your fingers far from the cutting area.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Take the paring knife and insert just the tip. Do not push the knife in very far as it will get stuck from the pressure of the shell. So put just the tip in and then pull up and make another little cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Make your way all the way around the spaghetti squash until you connect with your first cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

You may need to go around the squash with your paring knife one more time making the cut just a little bit deeper. This will not take hardly any time at all to do.

Then pull it apart.

There it is all cut and ready to go.

Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. I also use my knife to clean up the stringy seeded area a little more thorough.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Ready to cook.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

When I bake them I like to spritz the squash with some avocado or olive oil, you could also use a coconut cooking spray. It’s not necessary to spritz them if you will be cooking them in the Instant Pot.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Give a good sprinkle of salt.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Place open cut side down in baking pan.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

I often make two or three spaghetti squash at a time and keep the cooked spaghetti strands in my refrigerator for a quick meal. It also freezes well, so I may put half of it in a freezer bag and freeze for another day.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

I bake it in the oven at 350° for 60 to 70 minutes until nice and fork tender. I like to have my spaghetti squash soft so if you would prefer to have a crunchy bite just bake it for a little less.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Let it cool and then using a fork pull out the long strands of spaghetti.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Keep pulling out the spaghetti strands.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

This part amazes me everytime! All these strands of squash come right out looking like spaghetti.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Two spaghetti squash will make about 8 cups of cooked squash.

I use spaghetti squash in any recipe that calls for pasta. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

Ingredients

  • spaghetti squash

Instructions

  1. Using a paring knife, cut around the middle of the squash making very small cuts with a paring knife. Continue cutting around the middle until you reach your original cut. Go back over the cutting line with your paring knife making your cuts a little deeper. Go all the way around again. The squash should come apart. Scoop out seeds.

Baking in oven for one or more spaghetti squash

  1. Spritz the cut side of the spaghetti squash with avocado, olive, or coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt and place cut side down in baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 60-75 minutes until fork tender.
  3. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Cooking in Instant Pot for one spaghetti squash

  1. Place the rack in the bottom of the pot and add 1 cup water. Place the two halves of the squash in the pot. You may need to place on up and one down to fit. Close lid and make sure steam vent is closed.
  2. Press Manual mode and set at 10 minutes for pressure.
  3. When pressure is finished and it switches to warm mode (with the L for low in front of the numbers) turn it off and carefully open the steam vent.
  4. When all the pressure is released you can open the pot and remove the squash.
  5. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.
