The oven is already going with your a turkey; don’t waste the gas/electricity! Get out your roasting pan and throw in your string beans.
Some interesting vinegar’s could make string beans a lot more interesting. This dish takes less than 5 minutes to put together . If you don’t have maple cider vinegar, mix 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar with 2 Tbsp. of organic maple syrup.
Your string beans will never taste like anyone else’s!
3 Tbsp. Olive oil
¼ tsp. Red crushed pepper
1 tsp. Himalayan Salt
1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
¼ cup maple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees with roasting pan in oven for 15 minutes. This will begin the roasting process as as soon as string beans are in the pan. Place string beans in hot roasting pan. Add olive oil first. Add rest of ingredients except for maple cider vinegar. Roast at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Take out of oven add vinegar while still hot. Serve immediately.
This will be the tastiest mock mashed potatoes you will ever have and is a great alternative to the more complex carbohydrate of potatoes.

This pairs nicely with our Garlic Mashed Cauliflower. Using cauliflower instead of potatoes is a nice replacement for a low carb lifestyle.
According to Shape Magazine, hemp seeds give you the complete nutritional power of hemp with their blend of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, high fiber content, and quality amino acid profile. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and potentially osteoporosis, and that is generally low in women. Three tablespoons of hulled hemp seeds gives you 10 grams (g) of protein, 14g fat (mostly coming from omega-3 and omega-6 fats), and 2g fiber. Best uses: Hemp seeds are very versatile and can be sprinkled on salad, mixed in with yogurt, or added to a smoothie.

Izzy’s famous turkey meatballs with caramelized onions have been a savior at night instead of picking at something sweet with loads of carbs. These meatballs have a simple sweetness from the caramelized onions and are very healthy. I love to eat them with salad as it is a very satisfying light and delicious lunch or dinner.
These meatballs are also great snacks especially in the afternoon when you need that little pick me up and you’re craving something sweet. I always think a “little go to snack” at your fingertips is key to a great nutritional food day and these turkey meatballs actually satisfy all those needs.
Please enjoy these meatballs as I have enjoyed sharing this recipe with all of you.
