I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Poutine: Here’s a Poutine Recipe Worth Trying!

Canada’s known for many things: amazing landscapes, tasty maple syrup, devoted hockey fans, and pop icons like Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Justin Bieber. But there’s one more thing this great country is known for, something that’s been rooted in its history since the 1950s…a delicious delicacy made up of fries, gravy, and cheese that’s a staple in Canadian cuisine. That’s right, I’m talking about poutine!

A symbol of Quebec culture and pride, poutine reigns as one of the province’s most popular dishes to date. Although it’s a tourist favorite, poutine also has a less-than-healthy reputation. A typical fast-food restaurant serving of this dish will cost you a whopping 840 calories, 87 grams of carbs, and 43 grams of fat!

While that may sound like a nutritional nightmare, we did some digging and found a way you can have your poutine and eat it too (minus the guilt)!

Turn Up for Turnips!

You’re probably thinking, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Why mess with this delectable dish? But trust us, with a few healthy swaps, you won’t have to pout over your poutine anymore.

This Nautilus Plus recipe inspired us to switch to a healthier version of the famous Canadian food, and the star ingredient is tastier than you’d expect. Turnips — yes turnips — will transform your taste buds in this better-for-you version of poutine. Just give it a try. We swear it’s tasty!

Can you think of a better way to stay on track with your health goals and enjoy poutine at the same time? If you’re currently participating in a challenge like this to achieve Results You Can’t Get Anywhere Else, then this recipe is a win-win for you! After a few pushups, I’d say you earned your poutine.

Bon appétit !

"Sometimes it's not about losing weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I felt lost and trapped in the life I had fallen into. My mom saw me suffering and had just started her own journey. After her first week, she called and told me Isagenix was what I needed, and I fought her on it for four ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I found every reason in the world not to do it: I couldn't afford it. I didn't have the time. I had weddings and holidays coming up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth? I didn't want to do these shakes. I didn't want to be sold something. I didn't want people to think I needed help. I didn't want to admit I didn't have everything under control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I finally caved to get her off of my back. By the end of the first week, I felt like a completely different person. By the end of the first month, I WAS a completely different person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My stress was nearly nonexistent. I slept like a rock. My energy levels were high and consistent throughout the day. I had unknowingly given up coffee. I woke up feeling alive and not half-dead. That was 2 1/2 years ago. I haven't stopped since. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Isagenix has renewed my passion for exercise and sports, put me in contact with incredible people, and helped me financially.** But above all, it’s helped me realize that no matter how well I'm doing or how great I feel, I started in that same dark and terrible place so many are still in. I was there, and I didn't realize how bad I felt every single day, until I felt good.” — Ray Cataline ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Results you can’t get anywhere else. #isagenix
