🍤𝗚𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗺𝗮'𝘀 𝗝𝗮𝗺𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗮𝘆𝗮 🌶 . With Mardi Gras TODAY 🎉 , I was craving Cajun food HARD. Both of my parents grew up in Louisiana & my mom makes this Jambalaya several times a year. It’s my grandma’s recipe and the jambalaya I grew up on. I called my mom and asked for the original recipe (posted in the last pictures) and cut out the butter/made some healthy swaps. It tastes just like I remember 😍 Feel free to add okra or whatever else your Cajun hearts desire. I meal prepped this out into 5 portions & each one was a whopping 484g! . 🔸𝗠𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀 for 1/5 : 379 cals (41P/6F/40C) . 🔸𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀: —1/2 pound chicken breast, cooked & shredded. (Weighed raw) —1/2 pound shrimp —1 container (336g) Jalapeño Turkey Sausage (HEB brand! Only 3.5g fat/serving) —1 bag frozen riced cauliflower —3/4 cup white rice —3 green bell peppers (weighed 375g) —1 8oz can Tomato Sauce —1 13.4oz can Mushroom Stems & Pieces (drained) —1 can (14oz) beef broth —1 can Campbell’s French Onion Soup —Tony Chachere’s Seasoning, S&P, Tabasco Sauce (only do a bit—always easier to add heat later than it is to take away heat!) 👩🏼‍🍳𝗜𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀: 1. Preheat oven to 350 2. Dump all ingredients except sausage/shrimp into a sprayed 13×9 pan. 3. Stir to combine. 4. Top with sliced turkey sausage 5. Cover the pan with aluminum foil 6. Bake for 1.5 hours 7. When there are 20-25 minutes remaining, add the shrimp on top, pressing them down into the jambalaya. 8. If there is a lot of liquid remaining when you take the pan out, remove the lid and let it sit for an hour+. The liquid will absorb! . The entire casserole came out to be 2423g total so I aimed for ~484g per container. . . . #iifymwomen #mealprepping #healthyfood #mealplanning #grandmasrecipe #healthylife #cajunfood #healthyliving #ifitfitsyourmacros #trackingmacros #healthyeating #healthymind #mealideas #mealprepsunday #healthyrecipes #mealprep #healthydinner #flexibledieter #macronutrients #iifym #mealprepideas #flexibledieting #healthylifestyle #healthymeals #healthyfoodideas #mealpreplife #macrocounting #weightlossrecipes #highprotein
