For years whenever my husband and I would purchase furniture it seemed we always picked the same dark brown pieces over and over. Now when I look around my house at this sea of “brown”, I want to give it … Continue reading
I always feel healthy after yoga and so for at least a good hour and a half I try to eat clean. 🙂 Today I decided to make a Kale and Quinoa salad. This salad is filling, good for you and tastes great too. Kale and Quinoa Salad 1 Bunch of Kale (cleaned and de stemmed) 1 cup Quinoa (cooked and cooled) I used Gluten free 1/4 avocado 3 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Organic) 2 T Fresh lemon juice 1 t Dijon mustard 1 garlic clove diced salt and pepper to taste Clean and de stem Kale. Roll Kale leaves and chiffon chop them. Place chopped kale and about 1/2 cup quinoa in a bowl. In a small bowl mix E.V.O.O., Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well. Put about 1 T of the dressing on the kale and quinoa mixture. Top with avocado and chow! I save the extra kale, quinoa, avocado and dressing in separate left over dishes. I plan on eating this for lunch everyday this week. ENJOY! Your body will thank you.
I am a die hard Mexican food lover, but it’s just not always the healthiest of choices. Nevertheless, I need my Mexican fix weekly. This week I decided to make a healthier version of my favorite food. I had a million places to be on Monday night so I needed something quick and healthy. This recipe is easy and was the best chicken taco I have ever had. I think the salsa is the key. I used a Frontera Salsa…
2 Chicken Breasts
1 Jar Roasted Habenaro (HOT) salsa – Yes salsa matters!
1 head of green cabbage (thinly shredded)
1 package corn tortillas
Low fat sour cream
In crockpot combine chicken breasts with entire jar of salsa. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
1/2 hour before chicken is done, shred chicken breasts and place back in crockpot.
Take 2 corn tortillas and heat in microwave for 20 seconds. (If you want crispy shells you can place the corn tortillas in the oven at 350 degrees for a few minutes.) Spread a dollop of sour cream on the top tortilla shell. Place shredded chicken on top of shell. Top with shredded cabbage and cilantro. Pick up and chow!
The two corn tortilla shells are key! Otherwise you can’t pick them up to eat…..they will just fall apart:(
This recipe is a keeper! I am telling you…..soooooo good!
