Hands up, if you work long hours! Eating healthy on the go is never easy if you don’t have a plan. But it’s not impossible even if you have no clue where to start. All you need are a few basic healthy, quick and easy meal recipes that you can cycle through during the week. That’s why I’m sharing a favorite seafood sauté and brown rice recipe!

Getting healthy options

For the most part, I think we have a tendency to make things more complicated than necessary. Educating yourself about where your food comes from and realizing that healthy means fresh and unprocessed, is half the battle.

There’s hope though! Thanks to sustainable and humane  ( organic and local food farming, co-ops, etc) cultivation practices, we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that WE don’t have to break the bank to gain access to pesticide free, sustainably grown, and humanely reared livestock!

After all that, cooking is easy! As I’ve mentioned before, I buy mostly organic foods and stay away from the “dirty dozen” . That means I stay away from those fruits and veggies that tend to get treated  with high amounts of pesticides. Also, when I DO eat meat, poultry, or fish I also pay attention to labels, etc.

Your basic ingredients:-

1. Cup  of steamed organic brown rice& quinoa medley (available Sam’s Club, or other retailers)

2. 1/2 cup of organic mini bella mushrooms

3. 2 cups of shredded organic greens (psst! I got mine at traders Joe’s )

4. 1/2 cup of Sea food medley or other protein sources

5. 1 teaspoon of curry powder, 1/4 teaspoon of spices paprika and a pinch of sea salt to taste (you can also subst. 3 table spoons of stock instead)

6. 2 cloves of chopped garlic

7. Garnish with some steamed or blanched peas (this is optional).

Preparation

Next, sauté your garlic in one tablespoon of cold pressed organic sunflower seed oil ( or any other oil that has a high smoke point) along with the dry ingredients. Then, toss in your brown rice-quinoa mix and veggies with your lightly sautéd seafood medley. To keep your seafood from overcooking, sauté the seafood  separately for approx. 5-7mins and then toss everything together and Voila!  All done! Yep, it only took me 15mins and I was out the door with a healthy home cooked meal, Boomsies!
