You know when you want a really hearty, flavorful meal but hate that ‘so-full-you-can’t-breathe’ feeling? Well, this is the perfect solution.

Dieting is hard. Very hard. Tis why I don’t [can’t] diet. As I mentioned in my tropical green juice post earlier this week, I prefer to live a balanced life. You know, a life where salad for lunch with a cookie for dessert is completely acceptable.

A life with no cookies is no way to live!

I’ve never been able to stick to any diet. NEVER. I remember in my junior year of high school, I attempted the Atkins diet and failed miserably after 2 days! LOL. I remember grabbing a box of cereal and chomping down a handful out of complete desperation. What a disaster.

By the way, I’m in no way trying to get all Oprah on you by telling you how to live your life. If you have a medical condition or a dietary restriction, by all means, follow your doctor’s orders.

I’m clearly no expert. I just love to eat, and I’m simply sharing what has worked for me. Moderation has always been the best method for me living a sensible life. Dieting and depriving myself of foods I love affects my overall mood and just makes me completely unhappy.

Planning my day/week also helps immensely. Sometimes life happens and you can’t stick to it. You have to just forgive yourself and try again next meal! Take it one meal at a time and make the best choice possible each time.

Example: If I know I’m going to a client dinner at night, I make sure breakfast, lunch, and snacks that day are as sensible as possible. This is how this flatbread was born.

This Turkey Picadillo Flatbread was so easy to make and assemble. The best part being that you can completely customize it to your liking! I love versatile recipes.

First, you make the ground turkey (or use leftovers – pulled pork, chicken, whatever you have at hand). Then, you make the black bean hummus. I made a VERY simple alternative to the regular black bean hummus recipes. In other words, I didn’t use tahini and too much oil. Feel free to make your favorite black bean hummus recipe though!

Finally, you make the cauliflower rice and eggs. I used Trader Joe’s Riced Organic Cauliflower which only takes 4 minutes to make in a pan. Of course, I added a bit of complete seasoning to amp up the flavor. Gotta spice everything up, guys!

Not only was this Turkey Picadillo Flatbread bursting with flavor, I felt great after eating it too. Full, satisfied, and happy. I hope you make this and enjoy it to the very last piece!
