As most of you know I’ve been extremely busy, but with that said, I’ve still had to time to create some delicious eats.
For instance, the breakfast below is what I like to call The Lean Banana Split – all the flavors of a banana spilt but with less calories, more protein and fiber, and it’s for BREAKFAST!
- 1 serving of Kashi Go Lean
- 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 2-3 strawberries, sliced
- Approx. 3/4 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
I’m skipping over lunch (because I usually just have a salad) and heading straight to meal that is usually the most time consuming.
Quick, healthy, and tasty dinners are hard to come by without falling in a food rut and eating the same ol’ things week after week. Well this week I came up with two standbys. One is an oldie- frozen/fresh combination stir-fry and the other is a new recipe that I decided to try and will continue to make because it was absolutely spectacular!
First up, frozen stir-fry veggies (from Costco), stir-fried in water. I added a touch of freshness by tossing in a portobello mushroom and some bean sprouts. Once the veggies were cooked to my liking I added some Bragg’s Liquid Aminos and some sriracha hot sauce… quick and easy!
That one little pea is taking the spotlight in the photo….
And for the spectacularness… I give you my rendition of Fitness Magazine’s Greek Quinoa.
I will definitely be making this again, especially when Isaac is back in town because I’m sure he’ll love it. It was fast, very easy, plus it tasted heavenly. I am so glad I made the whole recipe (4 servings) rather than halving it because now I have left-overs!
I pretty much followed the recipe but I did change a few things. The changes are italicized.
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup juice from home grown canned tomatoes, plus additional water
2 Roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
4 shredded basil leaves
1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
Off to bed, I need my beauty rest as the rest of the week is gonna be B-U-S-Y!!
