Quinoa Salad (easiest dinner idea!)

quinoa-salad-shot-1

Sometimes I want to eat simple, healthy, delicious, and something that takes little to no effort to make. That dish is a quinoa veggie salad.

Cook your quinoa as you normally would and let it cool off. While it’s cooling, chop up some fresh peppers (a variation in color is always fun), scallions, celery, cucumbers, zucchini, and shred some carrots.

Have a little olive oil and  fresh lemon to squeeze for the dressing and add a little spice with turmeric, Celtic salg and you’re done.. enjoy!

The holidays were tough! In the sense that you can’t escape all the delicious, traditional food of the culture. And so what if we all ate like pigs? There is no reason that we cannot get back on track now! All it takes is getting to the supermarket, doing some delicious, organic shopping and creating a meal from your fresh ingredients.Start your juicing and start your cooking and feel better instantly!

So, dinner should be delicious, packed with flavor, and be healthy all at the same time. Well, with a stir-fry that is exactly what the whole family is getting. The dish is the perfect solution to include more vegetables and less meat into the diet. It is also packed with color, flavor, and texture.

Tonight’s dinner is a chicken stir-fry over wild rice and includes:

  • Portobello mushroom
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Wild Rice
  • Kale
  • Peppers
  • Long hot peppers
  • Ginger
  • Low sodium Say sauce

1. Prepare your wild rice.

2. Add all veggie ingredients into a pan and add soy sauce. Cook for a little until al dente style.

3. In another pan, cook pieces of chicken over olive oil for a few minutes till full cooked.

4. Combine everything and serve over wild rice.

Kale Caesar Salad

Salads are just one of those dishes that taste amazing and refreshing with every meal. They are a light pick me up during the day that won’t make you bloat or feel guilty. A favorite and old school classic is the Caesar salad until I made it my very own and added one of my most favorite ingredients; kale!

I now ONLY eat kale Caesar salad and it is a whole new experience!

Very simply:

  • coarsely ripped apart kale leaves
  • any croutons you desire
  • light Caesar dressing
  • Use any other seasoning or topping you prefer

Caesar salad will never be the same!

 

Xoxo and have a beautiful day everyone 🙂

Brussels Sprout Chips

We all have a craving for some delicious and baked chips every once in a while well now you can crave them and eat them too! Brussels Sprout chips are definitely the way to go and they have become one of my favorite super easy dishes to make in a hurry. (If you are stuck on what to make for a side dish, this is something you will NOT feel guilty about)

 

My take on Brussels Sprout chips goes as follows:

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Take a bunch of washed Brussels Sprouts and cut the stems off, letting the leaves fall off. Cut more off the bottom to let more leaves separate.
  • Toss the leaves  in olive oil, Celtic salt, and fresh ground pepper (or any other spice you prefer)
  • Lay them out flat on a baking sheet and pan
  • Bake in the oven until the leaves turn light brown and crispy (10 min or more depending on your oven)
  • Enjoy!!

P.S.- the left over whole Brussels Sprouts can be steamed or roasted later

Honey Roasted Chicken with all the fix-ins

In addition to my passion of making every women look and feel beautiful, I am also an avid fan of living a genuinely healthy lifestyle. That includes cooking and eating for myself and my family. I hope that my recipes and ideas will inspire and cause a contagious need for a healthier lifestyle for one and all. Because in order to look our best, we need to feel our best from the inside, out.

This super easy recipe is delicious, filled with flavor and you’re body will definitely appreciate it 😉

Honey Roasted Chicken

Today’s lunch was a honey roasted chicken with garlic, tri-color quinoa, Klondike Gourmet petite potatoes, portabella mushrooms, and asparagus sauteed in olive oil, Celtic salt, and pepper. (Sounds complicated but definitely not)

Roasted chicken and potatoes:

Organic empire chicken breast for the best results!

Chop up the garlic, throw on with Celtic salt, raw honey, ground fresh pepper, cumin, paprika, and fresh ground turmeric.

For the Quinoa:

Cook quinoa as usual (one cup quinoa, 2 cups water- wait till water boils, then lower to a simmer and wait till water dissolves) Sprinkle in Celtic salt and black pepper and turmeric.

Saute onions and yellow peppers in olive oil then add quinoa.

Asparagus and Portabella Mushrooms:

Saute in olive oil, Celtic salt, and fresh ground pepper. I prefer them al Dante (cooked till firm but not hard)

And that’s your lunch…By Limor! Enjoy!

(In case anyone was ever wondering why I like to use turmeric in almost everything I cook. Turmeric is high preventative against cancer and has been commonly used in Asian and Indian cooking for many generations as an herbal remedy)
