Raspberry Jam

Raspberryjam6.jpg

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Mostly because I genuinely love the sunshine and the heat, but also because my berry plants come alive!! When we moved into our house three years ago, we had no idea there were any berry plants on the property. Then when summer hit I had strawberries and raspberries coming out of my ears! This season the plants have nearly doubled, and I have more raspberries than I know what to do with. 

I've always been a huge fan of jam. But if you look at the nutrition labels at the store there is SO much sugar I could just never justify it! This jam is the perfect solution. It only has three ingredients, and it's just as sweet as anything off the shelf! 

This jam comes together SO quickly it almost blew my mind. Set aside 20 minutes to whip this up and you're golden! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 280g fresh raspberries (this can be replaced with any kind of berry, the nutrition will just change slightly depending on what you use!)
  • 2 C Splenda/Sucralose
  • 2T lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Take down to a simmer and stir occasionally for 10 minutes. 
  • Transfer into heat safe jar and keep in the fridge! (these also make super cute gifts for friends, family or neighbors! Try putting it in a mason jar with a cute plaid ribbon!)

Biscuit & Gravy Casserole

2.jpg

The long awaited recipe has finally arrived!!! Who doesn't love a good plate of biscuits and gravy? We love that meal here at the Adams household. But I stopped making it once I jumped on the macro train cause it was so fatty and carby. I didn't think it was possible to find a happy medium between just enough carbs to actually make it taste like biscuits and gravy and being too much for one meal. 

But alas! I found it! 

This recipe is baked in a 9x13 dish and one serving is an eighth of the pan with 1/4c of the gravy. This casserole takes a minute to bake, but it keeps overnight in the fridge and is JUST as good the next morning for breakfast or dinner! It's definitely become a staple in our house!

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 Homestyle Biscuits (the ones in the tube. The package comes with 8, but only use six!)
  • 9T eggwhites (138g)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 8 Jimmy Dean Sausage patties, crumbled.
  • 28g fat free cheddar
  • 28g mild cheddar shredded cheese
  • 1/2c Fairlife skim milk
  • salt and pepper
  • one package of sausage gravy mix. (save this for after the casserole is in the oven!)

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Cut biscuits into bite size pieces and place them in a lightly greased 9x13
  • top with crumbled sausage
  • top with cheese
  • mix egg, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and pour over biscuit and sausage. 
  • Cover with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • While that's in the oven, mix gravy packet with water and top each piece with gravy right before serving!

See? Easy peasy and SO GOOD!
