ISOPASTA RICE GUMBO

Serves 8 

Call your friends and get ready for a late night around the dinner table with this hearty, Cajun crowd-pleaser! Faster and less fussy than a traditional gumbo, I’ve given this savory recipe’s roux a makeover with soy and oat flours, so you can enjoy a gluten free dinner. Shrimp, chicken, and sausage add huge flavor and lots of protein, while our ISOPASTA Rice soaks up all that great Creole sauce.

Drink Recommendation: Beer! (Preferably Turbodog by Abita) Cheers!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

PUMPKIN AND SAGE SAUCE WITH ISOPASTA FUSILLI

Serves 6

 This smooth, seasonal sauce pairs beautifully with any of our protein-rich ISOPASTAs and gives you all the comfort of a cream sauce without all the fat. Pumpkin and butternut squash lend huge amounts of vitamins A and C, while Canadian turkey bacon gives you little pops of salty texture. I used ISOPASTA Fusilli for this savory, satisfying, low-fat dinner, but feel free to try it with our ISOPASTA Rice, too, for a great, easy, impressive risotto!

Wine Recommendation: This creamy pumpkin sauce is well-paired with a crisp Pinot Grigio. Cheers!

PASTITSIO PENNE

Serves 6

Pastitsio is an amazing Greek pasta dish with lots of ground beef, layers of creamy béchamel sauce, and tons of carbs.  It’s comfort food at its best, but I wanted to take this old favorite of mine and give it a new twist with our amazing ISOPASTA Penne.  There’s some new flavors, some new proteins, and a good dose of feta cheese to bring lots of flavor without the sodium or calories.  Best of all, this pasta bake keeps well for days, making it a great fit for your meal prep lifestyle.

Wine Recommendation:  A big, loud Cab will pair amazingly with this hearty dish.  Cheers!

MEDITERRANEAN SKILLET FISH AND ISOPASTA RICE

MEDITERRANEAN SKILLET FISH AND ISOPASTA RICE

Serves 4

When I came across the idea of cooking fish in a skillet on the grill, I was sold.  This easily-prepared meal is a real show-stopper to bring to the table, and best of all, it keeps amazingly well.  A hearty fish like cod not only has amazing stores of omega-3’s, vitamin B12, and protein, but it keeps remarkably well without drying out from reheating in a microwave.  This means that you can enjoy your fish and ISOPASTA Rice all week, stored in our Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers, making this a great dish for your health and your meal prep lifestyle!

Drink Recommendation:  A cold, crisp Chardonnay will compliment this zesty fish skillet well.  Cheers!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

FAUX FRIED RICE

Serves 2

I developed this fast, easy, flexible recipe out of a frustration with traditional fried rice – a meal no one ever walks away feeling good from!  The white rice and high sodium content crash your body out fast, leaving you more likely to snooze on the couch than lead an active life.  For me, my version made with leftover quinoa is simple comfort food at its best – it’s salty, it’s spicy, it’s savory, and it packs an amazing protein punch that fuels you through your day.  I sometimes add in a diced maple chicken sausage patty for even more protein and a little touch of sweetness.  You can make this dish your own, too, with leftover cooked veggies or chicken, whatever you might have in your fridge that appeals to you.  And don’t worry about what time of day it is – this “fried rice” is amazing for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

ISOPASTA PENNE WITH PEANUT SAUCE AND SMOKED TURKEY

Serves 4

 This peanut sauce is one of my favorites. Besides the added protein, the flavor can’t be beat! Use it in this recipe, but feel free to use it on any of our ISOPASTAs or as a great dipping sauce for chicken. The smoked turkey breast adds great flavor and texture to an easy meal that will store beautifully in your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers.

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

Drink Recommendation: A light prosecco will pair beautifully with this rich, savory sauce. Cheers!

TURKEY MEATBALLS

Makes 25

Meatballs can be tricky – loaded with breadcrumbs and fat, they may taste great, but they’re not so great for you. My version uses lean ground turkey breast to give you a low-fat, low-cal, low-carb meatball that tastes amazing with our incredible ISOPASTA. Best of all, these meatballs freeze beautifully, so you can make a double or triple batch to have ready to stir into your favorite pasta sauce whenever you want!

Wine Recommendation: The wine you ultimately choose will depend on your sauce. On their own, though, these lovely little meatballs go well with a mellow Malbec. Cheers!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

MANGO CHUTNEY ROASTED CHICKEN WITH ISOPASTA RICE

Serves 4 

Roast chicken is always a favorite, but sometimes it can get boring to use the same old recipe all the time. This low fat mango chutney chicken is sure to wake up your weeknight routine! Loaded with protein and flavor and light on calories, this easy recipe will be sure to become a favorite.

Drink Recommendation: A cold Sauvignon Blanc will pair wonderfully with this juicy chicken. Cheers!

I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

SPINACH AND ISORICE SALAD

Serves 1

 Got some leftover ISOPASTA Rice in your fridge? Then you’ve got an amazing lunch or dinner ready to make in no time flat! Zippy peppadew peppers, creamy salty feta cheese, and nutty toasted walnuts add lots of protein and flavor without breaking the calorie bank in this satisfying salad. Baby spinach packs in the vitamins to make this meal one that’s not only delicious but so nutritious. You might even find yourself making extra ISOPASTA Rice from now on just to be able to throw this tasty treat together the next day! Best of all, this is an amazing meal to enjoy in our Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers.

Drink Recommendation: A crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc will compliment this zesty salad well. Cheers!
