I always like to have a few quick healthy meals handy like this gluten-free recipe made from kale, onion and peppers.
My husband actually likes this combination with kale, even though he never gets excited when he hears it’s on the menu. (Don’t tell him that I know he likes it J)
Having several 30 minute meals ready to go when necessary can be a lifesaver.
For more protein to go with these veggies, you can cook an egg or two in the center of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking time. These eggs are not technically poached since they aren’t in water deep enough to cover them, but they will cook nicely if you
I don’t know where you live, but in northeastern Ohio where I and most of my family live, the days are getting shorter and cooler, and the nights are sometimes downright chilly. For me, this signals perfect weather for some of my favorite, easy-to-prepare healthy food recipes.
One of my all-time favorites is a healthy, totally vegetarian lentil soup that uses carrots, celery, onion and vegetable stock. But, if you would prefer a non-vegetarian treat, just use beef or chicken stock. Either way it tastes so good on a chilly fall day. Both I and my family absolutely love it.
Fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes add so much nutrition to a gluten-free diet — however, their flavor is the main reason I eat them, and I enjoy fresh tomato recipes like this salad. One way to serve them, alone or with other vegetables, is with one of my favorites, this gluten-free salad dressing.
Vibrant, zesty salsa adds excitement to a gluten-free main dish, side or snack. Having an easy basic recipe for it is a must in my family. Here is one of…
Roasted vegetables have a more intense flavor and a denser texture than many methods of gluten-free cooking. They are as easy to prepare as the steamed or braised method. I especially like the bit of crusty surface they develop, sort of like on a fried potato, but without the fat.
Fuel. Energy. Nourishment. Keeping it all in balance so that we have what we need to satisfy our appetites, maintain our energy, fuel our activity… that’s what would be healthy for us. And that balance is different for each person.
A satisfying aroma is coming from the oven. Soon we’ll be enjoying the tender texture and delicate flavor of a butternut squash. Today I’m baking this colorful squash with a little gluten-free stuffing made from apples, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Maybe a little butter, too….
For a fast and filling salad, quinoa provides lots of gluten-free nutrition. Although it is quick and easy to cook, like rice or pasta, quinoa is actually the seeds of a plant which is not really in the cereal family.
When I make quinoa, I often make a double recipe so I’ll have the leftover to make this salad the next day. It’s so easy!
