Well I’ve made the decision that 2012 is my year to get fit - I lost the 20lbs and I am not going to be looking for it any time soon!   I have been having some fun in the kitchen lately and creating recipes that fit the Paleo/Advocare life style.

Today I want to show you how to make Low Fat Pizza Stuffed Sweet Potatoes! They’re delicious!

The Ingredients:

  • 1lb Low Fat Ground Turkey
  • 1Tbl Poultry Seasoning*
  • 1/4 Fennel Seeds
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Black Olives, Sliced
  • What ever else you like on your pizza

Make your own Poultry Seasoning:

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground sage

Add all ingredients, including Fennel Seed to a Mortar and Pestle and crush together .

Sauce:

1 Organic Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce – Trader Joes

Or Pizza Sauce:

6oz Tomato Sauce
1 TBLS Frontier Pizza Seasoning

Putting it all together:

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees

Poke Sweet Potatoes with fork and place on baking sheet.  Place in oven and let roast for about 30 min – or until fork tender.

While Potatoes are roasting, crumble and brown your turkey.  Use your judgement on if you will need to add a little olive oil to the pan.  Add seasonings and  onion -cook through.

Once the potatoes are done cut lengthwise and mash up the insides a little – place back on baking sheet.  Ladle sauce over the potatoes, then add meat mixture and sliced olives.

Place baking sheet back in the oven and let it all reheat.

*If this sounds like to much work, you can also use the Uncooked Italian Chicken Sausage from Trader Joes and casings removed.  FYI- this will add a lot more fat (but goodness) to the recipe.   You also have the option to add cheese and dip in Ranch.  Thankfully, this did satisfy the craving I had for pizza!
