Its been a fantastic day so far and I am in the process of writing my Monday post as we speak. I get so many messages asking me what I eat in a day. I’m not going to lie. I am pretty structured with the way I eat. I feel it gives me more energy, and I just have adapted to it.
My morning usually doesn’t start until around 11am. I always use intermitted fasting and it has worked wonders for me. I have more energy and I love having a late breakfast. When 11 am rolls around, believe me I am ready to eat. I usually start off with a green juice around this time. It includes spinach, kale, chia seeds, avocado, almond milk, and celery. This fills me up and honestly gives me so much energy.
I make sure I am drinking lots of water through out the day. This keeps the toxins cleared out and keeps my energy levels up. I try to eat a light lunch around 2-2:30. I have a crazy, good salad that I eat . It consists of spinach, chickpeas, olive oil, basil, pepper, red cracked pepper, tomatoes, and goat cheese. This is so delicious. I either east this salad, or I will have protein and vegetables.
Dinner is usually around 6-6:30. We are a busy family, but we always try to eat together. My dinner is usually fish of some sort. I love a good salmon. I love to add vegetables with it. We love sweet potatoes or asparagus. We sometimes make a good vegetable mix of red peppers and mushrooms with sautéed onions. This is so yummy. We may add a small salad to the mix.
I do add in lots of lemon with my water through out the day. Lemons are so detoxing. I will add in a cup of celery juice per day. I have seen such a difference in my skin with adding in celery juice. It is so detoxifying too. I have went off a bit over the holidays, but I do tend to go full force once the holidays are over.
I feel adding in some nuts or light yogurt through out the day is also satisfying if you get hungry, so that is usually my go to snacks. Eating well for me has just impacted my health on a whole new level. I feel so much more energized and focused through out my days. Feeding the body well is the key to good optimal health.
A Good Salad always starts with some Great Organic Greens. I prefer Mixed Greens for this salad. I love the Mixture of the Greens and the Multi of Antioxidants that it gives you. Try to stick with Organic as it’s much healthier. The Antioxidants are loaded up in this small summer salad.
Throw your Greens into a bowl and add in all the other ingredients. Try to dice up the pear before hand so that it saves you time. I always try to stick to Organic ingredients. If you want to add more cheese, and prefer a block then dice up the feta cheese before hand also. I like to take a small baggie and place the oil and Dill weed and Parsley in that and shake it. It really gives the salad a really good mixture. This salad feeds two people. If you want to serve more, double the ingredients . The salad is great paired with a good Pinot Grigio.
Salads are a hit at my house, and this smoked salmon and spinach salad makes the top of the list. It incorporates spinach , a great alkalizing green with some amazing smoked salmon, and whole grain pasta. This is a perfect recipe as a side salad, or as an entrée. Its all up to you of how you want to serve it. I have to say its delicious, and quick. You can add some kale or dulce to the spinach too. It s your preference.
2 oz. smoked salmon
1 cup fresh organic spinach
(optional) 1/2 cup organic kale or dulce
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 tomato ( organic) sliced
2 tbsp. olive oil and vinegar
@ tbsp. flaxseed optional
Place the greens in a large bowl. If you are adding the Kale or Dulce, make sure to blend the greens well. You do not want one type of green just sitting on the bottom. Place the cooked whole grain pasta on top. Make sure you have rinsed the pasta with cold water, and drained thoroughly. Place the Walnuts on top , as well as the tomatoes. Slice the smoked salmon in to small pieces , and place on top. Add the flax seed and dressing on top. If you are making this , just for one person, stick with the serving sizes. If you are making a bigger salad, for your family , or a cookout, make sure to double the ingredients. I would advise if you are making a bigger salad, to double the dressing ingredients, and let everyone add their own dressing to their salads. Many people like more dressing than others do.
This salad is full of antioxidants, as well as very alkalizing. If you would like to use a certain green to spinach, pick the one that you like best and use that. They all taste amazing.
Eating healthy today is vital to our wellbeing. The older we get , it is crucial that we fill our bodies with wholesome foods that are loaded with vitamins and minerals and antioxidants.
I love posting healthy recipes because I feel if I’ve had success with recipes, why not pass them around. I love getting new recipes from friends and family, and I feel it helps each other set a good example oh well being.
I’m a salad lover, and this salad is really simple, yet delicious. It doesn’t require a lot of preparation , and is perfect for taking on the go . You can add sesame seeds if you’d like. It really does add a lot to the salad.
1.5 cups organic spinach
1 small organic avocado
1 cup of organic cherry tomatoes
1/8 cup sesame seeds
2 tbsp olive oil & vinegar mixture
Toss your spinach in a bowl . Add the sliced avocado. Top with the cherry tomatoes, and sesame seeds. Mix together oil and vinegar for a light dressing. Enjoy!
I know many of you love eating healthy, and you probably think that Pasta is horrible. It doesn’t have to be if you find the healthy kinds. There are many great pasta’s out there of great quality. One of my all time favorites is made by ezekiel. If you love their bread, you will love their pasta. I personally do not eat pasta very often, but when I do , it is made of great ingredients and great quality. This recipe is wonderful for cookouts, gatherings, or even great made as a side dish with that perfect steak. You want to make sure you find good quality aragula, that is organic. The penne can be found at any health food store in your area.
ARAGULA PASTA SALAD RECIPE
2 cups fresh organic aragula leaves
1 cup organic cherry tomatoes
1.5 cups organic penne pasta ( made of quinoa base)
1/2 cup organic olive oil & vinegar
1 tsp. chopped red pepper flakes
You want to start preparing your pasta, and with it being made of great ingredients, it will take a bit longer to prepare. Boil your pasta, and set aside. Place the aragula , and cherry tomatoes together, and place the penne pasta over it once it is done. Make sure it is drained accordingly. I like to add cucumbers to mine, organic of course, and can be sliced or diced. You can add any other vegetables to your salad. Add the dressing on top. This is wonderful with a great glass of red wine. This is approximately 220 calories per serving.
