Most people like fried rice. You never make it, but rather have it when you order take out at a Chinese restaurant. Today is a perfect day to make a healthy vegetable fried rice for meatless Monday! It's all about the vegetables in this dish. Farro with Roasted Vegetables (Meatless Monday) is another great dish to make for a meatless meal. Farro is very filling and healthy!
Last week I posted Everything But The Bagel Drumsticks. In that post I explained how to make drumsticks and my favorite dry rubs. This week I decided to show you how to make chicken wings, the easy way. I notice many people bake their chicken wings in sauces or fry them. Frying chicken wings are so delicious but the house smells and too much oil! I like to BROIL my wings and then add the sauce. You get a nice crispy and brown wing. Plus you get all the flavors in the sauce, without burning your wings! Add the sauce at the end and still get all the flavor! They are so good and easy to make! No need to guess if they are cooked through!
There are so many reasons why keeping a routine is important for our health, mentally and physically. A new year, a fresh start. Let's reset and start focusing on ourselves and goals for once. We all start the new year off strong but then slowly fall back and return to what is comfortable for us. When COVID changed our lives for the forceable future, we all started new routines, more comfortable routines. Since we are still home for the most part.
We all know how to make burgers, right? I am here to show you a healthier way to eat your burger. A cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce instead of adding a bun. A healthy no bun cheeseburger. Start off the year eating right but still keeping the foods you like. By omitting the bun you are saving 150 calories minimum on your meal. Adding the extra toppings and sauces add up. Why not omit the bun when it is already empty calories?
Winter holidays come with heavy meals. That is why fish is a good option. A fish you don't have quite often. The new year is here. Why not start off with a healthy meal to celebrate! I had wanted snapper for quite some time. When I called my local Whole Foods they told me they had 10 lbs of snapper in stock and that I should reserve the amount I wanted for pick up. I purchased 3 lbs and had it cleaned and filleted. My plan was to make snapper with pineapple salsa. This dish took me a total of 24 minutes, including the pineapple salsa. While the snapper was cooking, I made the salsa.
The holidays are filled with sweets. There is always an excuse to eat something unhealthy because it's the holiday season. As I write this I feel so full of eating unhealthy today. Now I have a slight headache! Tomorrow I will go back to healthy eating. With that being said, I want to share a healthy holiday snack I have been making, Bruschetta on a rice cake. It's really not ONLY a holiday snack but I am calling it that because it has all the Christmas colors. So why not call it a holiday snack? I love bruschetta. It's very fresh, light and serving it on a rice cake is even lighter than on bread. At less than 50 calories per rice cake, it can be topped with anything from peanut butter and bananas to guacamole without worrying about the extra calories.
