Just roast it!

Nothing is so easy and delish as oven roasted veggies! Tonight: cauliflower and red skin potatoes with a veggie burger and some avocado. Sprinkle with some olive oil and rosemary: Easy peasy!

Have a good one!

Beachy breakfast

This breakfast will definitely satisfy and I promise that you won’t feel hungry after 2 hours!
Easy and whole foods: chopped up green apple, banana, some almonds, raisins, rolled oats and SUPERFOOD: chia seeds. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids,
and provides your body with protein, vitamins (A, B, E and D) and minerals (calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and more!).

Liquid lunch

Liquid lunch

I got a Vitamix, hooray! The McDaddy of blenders! As you can tell, I’m very happy about it 🙂 Let’s have a liquid lunch!
So far this is my best (green) one. Spinach, kale, rolled oats, mango, ice cubes, water, some carrot, flax seeds and (of course) some SUPER chia seeds. Drink instantly. Yeah.

Red quinoa salad

SUPER red quinoa salad
 
SUPERFOOD: quinoa, this time the “red” kind: really delicious with a nutty flavor. Quinoa is a whole grain, naturally gluten-free, high in fiber and high-quality protein. And did I mention totally delish??! For this salad I used: cucumber, avocado, cilantro, lemon / garlic / olive oil dressing and green squash. SUPER yum and SUPER refreshing.

For a hot summer night!

overview copyWhen summer comes around and it’s hot & sticky, I like to eat light foods and yes, grill! Where I started off couple years ago with big juicy (delicious!) steaks (and yes they are bigger and better in Texas), now it’s mostly V E G G I E S. And I’m loving it. All of it 🙂 This week some veggie inspiration for a nice warm summer dinner (preferably at a pool or beach of course).

Chop up all the veggies you can find and put them on a screwer, wrap them up in aluminum foil or just throw them on the grill. YUM! Season your veggies with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt and some cumin for great flavors. I chopped up some collard greens, green squash, green bell pepper, mushrooms, onion.

Great as a side dish and provides good substance to your meal: Israeli couscous. After preparing the couscous, I added cumin, ground cilantro, salt, garlic, splash of lemon juice & red pepper to spice it up a bit. Then added some tomato, avocado, fresh cilantro cucumber. I could eat this all day.
