My son helped me make this zucchini bread last night. To be honest we made it for my daughter, I am trying a gluten free diet for her. I told Cooper he had to wait until the morning to have a piece of bread. I forgot to tell him I would need a picture of it first. As he patiently waited he started playing with his cars. Then he decided if he could not eat the bread maybe his cars could! After I snapped this picture, Cooper got a bite of bread. He told me, “Thank you for making this mommy. It is good”. I hope you enjoy it too!

I love meals that I can decide to make at 5pm and have on the table in 30 minutes! These turkey burgers use ingredients that you likely have in your kitchen. They are simple to whip up and my husband told me they are “blog worthy”. To make lowFODMAP use gluten free bread crumbs.
1 lb 93/7 lean ground turkey
3 Tbsp bread crumbs
1.5 Tbsp Bubbies pickle juice
1.5 tsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together. Make burger patties. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, flip patties and cook for another 5-10 minutes until cooked through.
Cooking tip: Make turkey burgers in a pan on the stove. Add 1/8 cup water to pan for burgers to cook and not dry out. You may need to add more water half way through cooking.
This recipe is so yummy my son must sneak a bite while I am taking a picture! The chicken salad includes pickles which is a great opportunity to eat prebiotics and probiotics, simply use fermented pickles! Make a large batch and use leftovers for lunch.

Cooking a butternut squash: Cut squash in half, scoop seeds out, and place face down in baking dish with ¼ cup water. Bake butternut squash at 350 for 35-45 minutes, until soft. When finished let squash cool. Scoop squash from the outer shell.
