Hands up, if you work long hours!
Eating healthy on the quick IS NOT quick!!
Literally have NO clue where to start?
Alright, note to self, enough with the whining already! What did those Paleo chicks do back in the day? I mean come, surely they had a tad more challenges and inconveniences than we, modern Homo sapiens sapiens, ever had?
My deepest sympathies to y’all 😉 In all actuality we all through out the ages have had to find ways to eat well enough and often enough to propagate the species; regardless of the tech. I also think we have a tendency to make things more complicated than necessary; case in point is how our food makes it to our tables. Getting “educated” about “conventionally” grown produce and “factory” farming (i.e. large numbers of animals packed in cages, yuck, yuck, yuck!) was almost enough to turn me off food altogether.
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 FOOODS! YEAH!!!
After all that, cooking is easy! As I’ve mentioned before, I buy mostly organic foods and stay away from the “dirty dozen” ; those fruits and veggies that tend to get treated with high amounts of pesticides, and when I DO eat meat /poultry / fish I’m a little nutty about their origins! 🙂 😉
Soo I leave you with a quick healthy recipe starting with:
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)
Next, sautee your garlic in one tablespoon of cold pressed organic sunflower seed oil ( or any other oil that has a,high smoke point; I love coconut oil too! 🙂 ) with the dry ingredients and then toss in your brown rice-quinoa mix and veggies. Lightly sautee your seafood medley separately (approx. 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!
Next stop, the everything shake staring ALL THINGS SHAKEO, lol 😉 Also known as breakfast on the go, lunch on the go, guilt free frozen dessert smoothie, etc.. can someone say, FLEXIBLE!! Ha haha 🙂
