Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Shrimp

This is one of my favorite Thai dishes and is really easy to prepare. To keep the rice from being too moist, use a one to one ratio of water in your rice steamer. Assemble all ingredients before stir frying. This is great casual main dish entree or it also works well as a side. Gluten-free, low fat and delicious.

Turkey Pozole (Quick and Easy)

This is a great way to use that  leftover holiday turkey or just roast some turkey thighs for the meat portion of this recipe. Pozole or Posole means hominy and is a pre-Columbian Mexican pork stew. I actually prefer using turkey although you can go traditional with some diced lean pork if you prefer. This recipe would also work well in a crock pot on a low setting. The kind of chile pepper you use will determine the heat level you prefer. This recipe is diabetic friendly and gluten-free if your enchilada sauce doesn’t contain any flour.
