Stuffed pepper

Stuffed pepper

So ever since trying quinoa a few months ago I’ve been in love. We made stuffed peppers that were so easy and great! The quinoa is cooked as normal then mixed with ground turkey meat and tomato sauce, put in a pepper and baked for 45 minutes. The yellow peppers are so sweet and the filling is amazing. Quinoa is a little high in carbs but unlike white rice it has so much fiber and vitamins so the swap is well worth it!

Lunch Wraps

Lunch Wraps

Okay so healthy eating has been slow lately, unfortunately. I keep eating the same things and I need to go food shopping desperately! But here is another tuna wrap I made for lunch today. Onion and orange pepper in the tuna itself, and then all the greens I had in my fridge: arugula, baby spinach and romaine lettuce. Tonight for dinner I’m going to switch it up, so stay tuned haha!

Fish dinner

Fish dinner

Tonight for dinner we had fish because we ate meat on friday and my mother thought we should pretend today was a friday to make up for it. (even though I already ate chicken today) We had tilapia grilled with garlic, parsley, and black pepper with baked sweet potato (or regular potato for my dad who does not want to diet with us or like sweet potatoes). The potatoes were cut almost all the way through and drizzled with olive oil and pepper before being baked. On the side we had some corn and there was also peas but I HATE frozen peas! Yuck the texture is awful, any suggestions on how I can make them better? Anyway, dinner was great! Fish is so good for you and sweet potatoes are a healthy carb to incorporate into your diet! I just would have like green beans and/or a salad rather than just the corn and yucky frozen peas.

Homemade hummus

Homemade hummus

I love hummus and it’s a much healthier pair to some fresh raw veggies than the more common choice of ranch dressing but I’m not a big fan of processed foods. Making some at home is easy and you get to control what’s being put in your body. In this recipe I used a can of chickpeas, half of an avocado, a quarter of a roasted pepper and a little bit of garlic and black pepper. After mixing the ingredients in a sealable container I just used a hand blender on it for about 30 seconds and that was it! So good!

Off to a nice start with breakfast!

Off to a nice start with breakfast!

I came home early from my boyfriends house one morning and was instantly inspired to cook, this was the turning point in my diet. I cooked up some fresh kale with onions, garlic, orange and red peppers in some coconut oil. After the kale was nice and soft I mixed it up with seven beaten eggs and poured the mix into a muffin tin. I sprinkled a little grated low fat cheddar on top and baked it for 25 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit. They came out amazing and got my whole family in the zone for healthier eating!
