Day 16; Favorite Meal

What’s your favorite recipe to cook?

Oh, Boy!! This is where it gets interesting. The thing is, I LOVE to cook the "healthier" choices, I've learned over the past 2 years. I cook these more when husband is out of the house. 

Here goes it.
Anything with QUINOA is delicious!! 

I buy this in bulk from Costco. I follow the cooking directions and it usually is plenty for 3 different meals. I often pre-make it , store for another day or for meal later. SUPER  DELICIOUS!!!

Below are a few of my favorite combinations. They are endless!
  • Sauteed/Fresh Veggies, a variety of Zuchinni, Squash, Bells Peppers, Kale, Spinach
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Lime
  • Black Beans
  • Tomatoes/Grape Tomatoes
  • Chick Peas
  • Seasoning for a little flavor, garlic, sea salt, pepper, paprika, cumin.
  • Shrimp, Scallops

  • Wash Potato
  • Peal & Cut in small pieces
  • Put into boiling water, reduce to medium heat
  • Boil for 25-35 Minutes until soft
  • Mash, add a little butter and/or seasonings or just eat plain

  • NO cooking needed, this is like a desert for us
  • We buy bulk fruit mix from Costco (cherries, promegranate arils, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries), we also use for Smoothies (another favorite). 
  • We also use FRESH Fruits instead of Frozen
  • The yogurts vary between Fage Plain & Greek Gods Honey Flavor. 
  • We add granola or a nut mix (sunflower seed, almonds, raisins, cashews)

"Don't wait to for inspiration to find you; BECOME IT!!"
