day 221 – Afternoon Deliciousness

The following ingredients were all organic unless I specify they are not.  Feeds about 2 or in my case, lunch, dinner and maybe tomorrow’s lunch depending on how hungry I am tonight.

1 cup sliced or diced yellow onions

½ cup sliced mushrooms

¼ cup dried, crushed tomato slices (I did not have organic on hand but feel free to find and use your own) or just add ½ cup fresh.

2 cups chopped, stem removed, red or green kale

1 Tablespoon avocado, coconut, ghee, olive oil or butter

1½ cups of water

1 Tablespoon crushed garlic

1 teaspoon Turmeric

2 Tablespoons crushed Rosemary

Pinch of Saffron threads

3 Tablespoons lemon juice

Salt and Pepper to taste

½ cup coconut cream/milk (from a can)

2 cups quinoa/brown rice combination

For Vegetarians, stop there.  For fish lovers, add an 8oz. filet.  I had some wild caught orange roughy.

Very super simple:

Heat the oil over medium heat, add onions and mushrooms.  Toss and about 3 minutes later, add kale, garlic and turmeric.  Stir and cover.  After 5 minutes add tomatoes, water, rosemary and saffron.  Combine and cover so the flavors meld.  After @ 3 minutes, add coconut and lemon juice and season to taste.  Stop here if you are a vegetarian and enjoy over grains.  If you add fish, add here, season and cover for @ 3 minutes.  Lift the lid and turn the fish over.  I like to chop up the fish and let the flavors infuse the fish.

I just made this up and I believe the ingredients married well and I couldn’t have had a more healthy or delicious lunch.  Try it.

I always have to have dessert so I cut up 1 cup strawberries, mixed in 1/4 cup of raw cereal crumble from Mother’s, added 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup coconut milk (the kind in the carton – not organic btw).  Mmmm. Finished off with a decaf cafe/coco milk and stevia and wrote about it while sipping.  Buen Provecho!

Ahhhh. To live well and feel well!

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross.

Who are these people in your life?  Stay close to them.
