Ultra Healthy Dinner

After eating pancakes for dinner last night, I decided to be a bit healthier today!

Typically, I cook enough food to leave plenty of leftovers for the week. As a teacher, I need to pack a lunch every day. When I finish cooking, I divide the leftovers into lunch size portions and put them in the fridge. Each morning, I can easily pop a tupperware into my lunch box!

Tilapia, kale and a brown rice, quinoa mix. Full of vitamins and Omega 3s!

This Seeds of Change mix is wonderful because it’s so easy to prepare and Organic. I dumped the whole package in a pot with a little olive oil and warmed it up on low. Finally, I sautéed the tilapia on medium until fully cooked.

This is a quick, healthy meal and with leftovers, it is also inexpensive!

Before eating this meal, I went for a long walk and did my yoga stretches! This is exactly what I need to be doing every day!

Scallops in 20!

Picked up these lovely treats at Native Sun last night. Only took me 20 minutes to whip up a delicious meal!

Tonight I wasn’t counting calories! I baked the scallops in garlic a butter/olive oil blend at 400F for 18 minutes. Before baking, I squeezed lemon on top with salt, pepper and parsley flakes. The potatoes were garlic, instant and organic, also from Native Sun. I sauteed the organic spinach with garlic for a few minutes and then layered them all together for an incredibly delicious meal! I only wish that I had bought more scallops! I’ve never cooked my own and was nervous about how they would turn out. Don’t be intimidated, this was easy!

My Favorite Snack

Guacamole!

My most favorite dip to make and eat!  Yum yum!

guacamole with sweet potato chips

My recipe:

  • avocados (2 peeled, seeds removed)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, diced & sauteed *most people prefer raw red onion, but they disagree with me
  • salt and pepper

Prep the onions, garlic and tomatoes. Lightly mash the avocados in a bowl and squeeze in lime juice. Let sit for a few minutes in refrigerator. When everything is prepped, use a wooden spoon to fold tomatoes into avocado along with garlic and onions. Salt and pepper generously. Put back in the refrigerator to cool for a few minutes.

Enjoy with your favorite chips! Here are a few I’ve been trying:IMG_3309 copy

Salmon Delight

While I have always been fond of salmon, it currently ranks #1 on my Eat This list. I am fortunate to live in a town where it is easy and inexpensive to get fresh seafood. Tonight I bought a piece of fresh salmon and a new marinade to bake it in!

I took a trip to my favorite discount grocery story and found these three items at a fantastic price!

The Masala Maza sauces are All Natural and delicious! Each jar has a recipe on the back. Halibut was the recommended fish for this particular marinade, and I will try the recipe next time. The grill sauce will go wonderful with chicken!

Speaking of Omegas, this oil is full of healthy ones! I’ve been putting it on salad and cooking with it. It is light and lovely.

Here is a picture of the finished product with spinach and rice. The salmon was perfectly cooked and needed no additional seasoning. My boyfriend was quite impressed with my cooking skills tonight!
