Modern Day Healthy Helper

Modern Day Healthy Helper

Were you a 80s and 90s kid?  Do you remember Hamburger Helper, it was a classic in my home growing up.  And it was one of my favorites.  Since then I have learned a ton about food, nutrition and being healthy.  Experimenting with old classics and turning them into a healthy meal has become so fun for me and I love to share what I find.  So this is my newest update on an old Classic Modern Day Healthy Helper. 

Basic Everyday Seasoning

Basic Everyday Seasoning

There are all kinds of seasoning mixes in the store.  And all different ways to season our food.  I have found that many of the seasonings I love are made by companies that don’t use organic spices which for me is important.  So I started glancing on the back of the spice mixtures and coming up with similar combinations of my own.  One of which is this Basic Everyday Seasoning. 

Italian Pepper Noodles

Italian Pepper Noodles I threw this together last night and I really enjoyed it so I wanted to share.  We had some plain noodles left in the fridge and some fresh bell peppers, I chose to experiment!

  1. Chop up about ½ cup Red and Yellow Bell Peppers, ¼ cup of Onion ( I used red Onion)
  2. Turn the stove to medium, throw some Olive Oil and Italian Herb Infused Olive Oil in the pan. Just covering the bottom of the pan. Then throw peppers and onions in pan.  Sprinkle Sea Salt and Black Pepper on top.  Let cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Turn heat down slightly and add 2 cups Cooked Noodles (or grain of choice) to pan.  Toss around mixing everything together.
  4. Sprinkle with roasted Red Pepper Flakes and a bit more Sea Salt and Black Pepper. Let cook for about 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. Turn off heat and enjoy! It does have a little kick to it!

I made about 2 servings, this recipe covers that.  To make a larger portion adjust ingredients accordingly.

What you will need:

About 2 cups of cooked Noodles

½ cup chopped Red and Yellow Bell Peppers

¼ cup chopped Onion

Olive Oil

Italian Herb Infused Olive Oil

Black Pepper

Sea Salt

Roasted Red Pepper Flakes
