Here are some of the delicious recipes I made this week. This was one of the tastier weeks (compared to a few failures last week). Unfortunately I wasn’t on top of taking really great photos!
Day #17/30: Bocconcini Salad
A friend made this for dinner for me the other week and I really enjoyed it, and so I wanted to repeat it at home! Super easy to make. Nice light meal for the summer.
Here is a recipe: http://www.foodlink.ca/index.php?p=recipes.ViewRecipe&recipe=31
Day #18/30: Overnight Oats.
mmmm! These were so sweet tasting and filling for a quick easy breakfast. It is another recipe by Oh She Glows. As long as you can remember to put it all together the night before, it’s perfect. I didn’t heat mine up again in the morning as suggested (decided to go with it cold), and I also didn’t add the toppings to it, because it already looked like a huge filling meal without them! Maybe next time..
Day #19/30: Tuna pasta bake
This night I felt like a carby meal! So I decided to follow a recipe for a pasta bake. I have never done that before. In this recipe I substituted brown rice pasta for the regular pasta, and “DAIYA” cheese instead of dairy cheese. My stomach doesn’t like too much cheese, and this recipe called for a lot, so I chose to go with a processed alternative. I liked this recipe because it lasted me a long time, and a little piece went nicely with a nice big salad. And it’s very simple (Key for me!).
Day #20/30: BLT and sweet potato with pesto sauce!
You know those days where you feel like indulging in a good craving? I had one of those Sunday morning. I made myself a BLT. For the bread I chose to use a sprouted Ezekial bread (from my understanding this is a less modified, natural grain), and I used avocado instead of mayo! Mmm…
With that I had a small sweet potato cut up and used a pesto sauce one of my clients gave to me. I will have to ask her to share the recipe, because it was delicious!
Here is a photo of one of my fried potatoes with pesto sauce:
Day 21/30: Cauliflower & Carrot puree.
This is another recipe from one of my favourite blogs, Nom Nom Paleo. It is a simple cook and blend kind of soup, with a really nice flavour. I didn’t get a good pic of it before I threw it in the freezer, but I did get a bite of it, and it was delicious. It’s a nice way to get a side of vegetables in with your meal, without doing something standard like a salad.
Day 22: Tomato soup.
I wanted to make a really delicious tomato soup this week, and I did! It kind of looks like the carrot puree when frozen…
Again, by one of my fav blogs Nom Nom paleo
Day 24/30: Shredded Kale Salad
This salad was amazing! So amazing I ate it all before realizing I didn’t take a picture, and before realizing I ate in one serving what you should eat in 4…hahaha whoops! At least it was just a TON of kale.
I forgot to put the cranberries in, and the salad almost tasted like a caesar salad for me.
That’s it for this week, one more update the next week. Then I will be happy to take a short break from cooking daily, but still sharing some recipes on a weekly basis.
