Healthy Chowder Recipes
Find healthy, delicious chowder recipes including clam, fish and seafood and corn chowder. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Manhattan Crab Chowder
Manhattan chowder is the red kind, made with disease-fighting lycopene-rich tomatoes. This version substitutes crab for the clams. To make it cook faster, take your time to finely dice the vegetables. We call for convenient canned crushed tomatoes, but you only need 2 cups; store leftover tomatoes in an airtight container for 1 week in the refrigerator or months in the freezer. Then take them out to toss into other soups or sauces–you can’t go wrong with adding tomatoes, from a heart-health perspective! All you need is crusty bread or oyster crackers and a tossed salad and you’ve got dinner…………………………………….

New England Clam Chowder
Chopped clams, aromatic vegetables and creamy potatoes blended with low-fat milk and just a half cup of cream gives this chunky New England-style clam chowder plenty of rich body. Serve with oyster crackers and a tossed salad to make it a meal………………………………..

Broccoli-Cheddar-Chicken Chowder
In this healthy broccoli-Cheddar-chicken chowder recipe, heavy cream is replaced with milk and flour-thickened chicken broth and we keep sodium amounts reasonable with lower-sodium broth. By making your own homemade creamy broccoli, Cheddar and chicken chowder, you’ll save up to 300 calories, 20 grams of saturated fat and 500 milligrams of sodium per serving compared to many store-bought or restaurant chowders…………………………………….

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Mixed Chili Bean

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 64 degrees and rain showers most of the day. I had to be at Kroger to pick up a food order I had placed yesterday. I had to pick them early so to try to get a few Meat Items. They say the later in the day your order is the less chance you have of getting Meat, Milk, and Eggs. There was already quite a few in line to Pick Up. I could go to the store but i can’t take a chance of catching something and bringing home and Mom catch it, she’s 92! So I just have to play it safe and stay in Isolation. So for dinner tonight I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 4 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had!

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner.

 

 

 

For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a couple of times now and really like them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! Being new they are sort of hard to find. The only store I have found them is Meijer so far. I had also baked a loaf of Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

That Healthy Pasta…………………..

When eaten in moderation, pasta can be part of a healthy diet. Whole-grain pasta may be a better choice for many, as it is lower in calories and carbs but higher in fiber and nutrients. … Calories can stack up fast when adding high-fat, high-calorie toppings like cream-based sauces and cheeses.

Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Red Beans and Rice

 

 

To start this day off I Poached an Egg and served it on a a slice of toasted Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 70 degrees out. It looks as though Spring is creeping in, now lets get rid of the Coronavirus!! So Isolation continues as does life. Everyone just trying to make the best of the things. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Red Beans and Rice, I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread.

 

 

I had the Rainbow Trout Fillet, that I had purchased from Meijer, in the freezer. I laid the package of 1 fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

 

For my Rice I used a new one for me, Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Red Beans and Rice. It prepares as all the microwavable Ready Rices. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with any dish. This has plenty of Red Beans along with Rice, I’ll be buying more of this. As I said I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

It’s Nuts………………………..

To preserve the quality of your nuts, keep them away from onions and other high-odor foods. They tend to take on the smell of things around them. Store shelled nuts at room temperature for up to three months. Store shelled or unshelled nuts in the refrigerator for up to six months, or in the freezer for a year or more.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich. To make it I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, lightly fried 4 slices of Kahn’s Deluxe Bologna, Scrambled a medium size Egg, and added a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Nothing like a delicious Breakfast Sandwich to start the morning! Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well like most of you still in house isolation. Outside its mostly sunny and 61 degrees. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

On my last visit to Meijer a few weeks ago I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops. Had them in the freezer so I grabbed the Chops from the freezer last night and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

We love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I also had Baked a Loaf of Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.
