People tell me eating healthy is too hard.
It’s not hard at all, it just requires preparation. Who wants a boring sandwich when God’s best is available in the local produce section? The result is more energy and less brain fog in the afternoon.
A quinoa bowl is my second favorite lunch……2nd only to a huge plate of greens with carrots, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cucumbers and beets with apple cider vinegar/olive oil.
1 cup of quinoa topped with 1 cup just blanched snap peas, carrots, beets, yellow squash, and cucumbers.
2. 1 cup Quinoa, 1/2 cup garbanzo beans, 2 tablespoons green onions, 1/2 cup carrots. One tablespoon parsley, with 1/2 cup diced chicken.
3. 1 cup Quinoa with 1 cup fresh spinach, 1/2 of an avocado, 3 walnuts, 1 tsp lime juice, dash of olive oil 1 teaspoon, 1 tablespoon green onions, and add a boiled egg.
4. 1 cup Quinoa with 1 cup blanched asparagus, some left over baked cod (1/2 to 1 cup), top with some black olives (1 tablespoon).
5. One cup Quinoa, 1 cup steamed broccoli, 3-4 almonds, shredded daikon radish (1/2 cup) 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, left over meatballs 3-4.
6. One cup Quinoa, 1 cup steamed cabbage (a mix of onions, carrots, cabbage, parsnips, garlic) with left over pulled pork (1/2 cup) and a drizzle of barbecue sauce.
That’s easy, and it doesn’t HAVE to be heated.
7. The Quinoa, Chia Bowl is a really nice make ahead breakfast dish that we can grab and go. All you need is a cup of precooked quinoa, a four ounce cup of unsweetened applesauce, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds. Mix 1/2 cup of plain yogurt or plain kefir with the previous ingredients and set in closeable container over night. In the morning add 1/2 cup fresh blueberries and 1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts. Yum! If you like things really sweet you will have to add sweetener, but this blend is just perfect for those who have given up sugar.Print This Post
