I don’t even know what to name this, it was that freaking good. So we’ll call it:

A Really Freaking Good Salad Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup spring mix, or any other greens of your choosing
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup cooked chickpeas
  • ½ medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 tbsp hummus, I used Lilly’s Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • ¾ cup of steamed sweet potato, chopped
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • The juice of ½ lime
  • A dash of cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and chili powder 

Directions:

  • Water sauté the onion with the chickpeas until the onions are halfway done. Then, add 1 tbsp of the hummus. Continue to cook until the onions are of your softness liking.
  • Season the quinoa with a sprinkle of cumin, cayenne pepper, and chili powder. Use these verrrry sparingly, you can always add more if you want it spicier.
  • Add the spring mix greens in your bowl first, followed by the rest of your ingredients. Squeeze the lime half over the contents, and top with some fresh cracked black pepper.
  • Admire its beautiful, healthy deliciousness and enjoy!!!  

~Protein packed Stuffed Peppers~

Ingredients:

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup alfalfa sprouts
  • ½ cup black beans, cooked
  • ½ of an avocado
  • The juice of ½ a lime
  • ¼ TSPs of garlic powder, fresh ground pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Slice the pepper in half and remove the stem and seeds
  • Combine the spices, lime juice, avocado, and cilantro in a small bowl and mash with a fork to create fresh guacamole
  • Now stuff your pepper!! Layer however you like, I layered mine with beans on the bottom, then quinoa, then guac, then the sprouts to top it all off. Enjoy!! :)

These babies are a perfect workout recovery meal if you have sore muscles, or even if you just want something filling and delicious to get you through the day! 

~Thick and Chunky Carrot Potato Soup~

Low fat, no added salt, sugar, or oils, gluten free, vegan, and super easy to make!

Ingredients:   

  • 1 medium red potato
  • ½ large yellow onion
  • 2 large carrots
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • ½ clove fresh raw garlic
  • 1 tsp raw turmeric root
  • 1 heaping tbsp rosemary
  • 1 cup water (or unsweetened almond milk for even more creaminess)
  • 1 leaf of cilantro for garnish (optional of course)

Directions

  • Chop and steam the onion, carrot and potato
  • Steam them until they’re to your softness liking
  • When done steaming, add ½ of your veggies into a blender, along with the lemon juice, garlic, turmeric, rosemary and water. Blend until smooth
  • Pour contents of the blender into a bowl, add your other steamed veggies, garnish, and enjoy!

Steamed Veggies with Cilantro-Lime Quinoa

Gluten free, vegan, with no added oils

Ingredients: 

  • 3 cups dry organic quinoa
  • 6 cups filtered water
  • 1 lime
  • 4 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 4 cups kale, washed and de-stemmed 
  • 1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

Directions:

  • Add your dry quinoa and 6 cups of water into a pot on high heat.
  • Take your chopped carrots and onion and put them into the pan with some water, cover with a lid and put on medium heat.
  • While your veggies are steaming and your quinoa is cooking, prepare your kale and cilantro
  • After the water comes to a boil with your quinoa, turn it on medium heat, stirring every couple minutes.
  • When your veggies become as steamed as you like them to be (I prefer mine still a bit crunchy, aka “lightly steamed”) add in your kale and mix in well. Kale steams super fast so only leave it for a minute or two. Add your garlic powder in the pan now as well.  
  • When your quinoa is fully cooked (quinoa is fluffy and there is no more water in the pot) add in the juice from your lime and your fresh cilantro and mix it in well. 
  • Now add your quinoa to your veggies, and enjoy!

This is super yummy, low in fat/sodium, and so easy to make!

quick & easy kale salad!

I was starrrrving when I got home from class today and this was delicious and super quick to make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups curly kale
  • As many grape tomatoes as you’d like (those babies are from my personal garden)
  • ½ big red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ avocado
  • ½ cup water

Directions:

  • Put all of the ingredients besides the kale in a blender and blend until smooth
  • Pour the delicious creamy goodness on top of your kale, mix it around well, and that’s it!  

Enjoy! :)
