Amy: "There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." -Nelson Mandela
WASOS: What is your favorite healthy recipe?
Amy: I don’t really have any healthy recipes (just really started cooking not that long ago…everything I “cooked” would come from a box)
Here is a recipe I found from Pillsbury and have adjusted some things in it. Pillsbury Grands Easy Taco Melts:
1lb. ground turkey, cooked and drained1
½ cups picante sauce (the recipe calls for chunky salsa but I don’t like the chunky stuff)
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits (they have a low fat one)
½ cup Monterey Jack or Mexican blend cheese, shredded
Directions:In 10-inch skillet mix cooked beef and ½ cup of the salsa (I just a whole cup). Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until hot. Press each biscuit into a 6-inch round. Spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture and 1 tbsp. cheese into the center of each round. Fold dough in half over filling; press edges to seal.Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 9-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining salsa.
WASOS: What is your ultimate fitness goal?
Amy: To be healthy and happy for myself and no one else. Once I do that then it will trickle down to my boys and husband, but I’ve realized that if I’m not happy with myself then I can’t be the best mom and wife I know I can be!
