Chris Powell Recipes are always a great source to turn to when looking for low carb and healthy ideas for staying energetic, fit and healthy!  The Chris Powell Carb Cycle Diet has lots of incredible and easy options that you can make throughout the holidays to still enjoy the food you love without committing to a crazy carb-free diet that cuts out all your favorite holiday foods.

So what are some of the Top Chris Powell Recipes to try out?  Well here are a few of my favourites:

1- Chicken, Zucchini and Potato Soup:  This is one of the comfort-food type Chris Powell Recipes that anyone on the Chris Powell Carb Cycle Diet will want to give a try.  Hearty and satisfying and perfect for a cold, winter day.

Chicken, Zucchini, and Potato Soup-

2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and cut into inch square pieces
2 lbs. chicken breast
2 lbs. zucchini, cut into inch square pieces
2 med. onions, chopped
5 c. low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tbsp. per serving unsweetened Greek yogurt (optional)
Place all ingredients into a crock pot, layering potatoes first, then chicken, followed by zucchini and onions last. Pour in low sodium chicken broth, and sprinkle nutmeg on top. Cover and cook for 8-10 hours on low heat. After cooking, shred chicken with a fork. When ready to serve, add a tablespoon of unsweetened Greek yogurt to each bowl and enjoy.

2-  Maple Pecan Sweet Potatoes:  This is another one of my favorite Chris Powell Recipes that actually Chris' wife, Heidi shared just after Thanksgiving.  I love sweet potatoes and anyone who's looking for a Chris Powell Carb Cycle Diet recipe to try should test this one out.

Maple Pecan Sweet Potatoes-

2 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, cut into 1" cubes
2 oz pecans, chopped
1/3 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Arrange sweet potatoes in a single layer in 9x13 inch glass dish.
Combine maple syrup, butter, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a bowl, and pour over potatoes.
Toss to coat and sprinkle pecans over top.
Cover potatoes with foil bake 15 minutes.
Uncover, stir and bake again, stirring every 15 minutes, until tender and starting to brown for 45-50 minutes longer.

3- Cranberry-Quinoa Salad/Stuffing:  I know many people who are fitness/nutrition freaks like me, LOVE quinoa, so this is another one of the Awesome Chris Powell Recipes that you just have to try!  Gluten free and easy to make!  You can make this as a regular quinoa salad or substitute it for your turkey stuffing as well!

Cranberry- Quinoa Salad/Stuffing-

Makes 6ish servings
-3 chicken sausages (I used sweet apple organic, but any vegetarian sub or tempeh would be great too)
-1 medium onion, chopped
-2 large apples, chopped
-1-2 cloves garlic
-1.5 C quinoa, rinsed and drained
-3 C veggie or chicken broth
-1 heaping T chopped fresh sage
-1/2 t dried thyme
-1/2 C dried cranberries
1. In a large pan over medium heat, sautée the sausage, onion and apple in a little olive oil until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and season well with salt and pepper.

2. Transfer to the rice cooker (or if you want to cook it on the stovetop, a large pot)
3. Add the quinoa, cranberries, sage, thyme and broth.
4. Cook on the “brown rice” setting, or until light and fluffy (stovetop, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes)
It’s a perfect lunch staple: on top of salad, or in a day-after-Thanksgiving style wrap with lettuce and cranberry goat cheese.
