Quinoa and Tofu… not just for vegetarians! Quinoa is a regular feature on our table… I enjoy the nutty flavor and it’s 100% whole-grain with really high nutritional value. Bonus: this time I used sprouted quinoa! Kale is also a super-nutrient food and it’s my favorite leafy green. When I make this bowl with chicken, I use all natural, antibiotic-free chicken breast – but, this time I decided to use tofu to vary my protein intake with a different food. Summer weather is here so I wanted the cool, bright taste of lemon. Super Fresh Power Food… BOOM!!!
I plan most of my meals a day or two in advance because I can flex more control over my total diet when I put advance thought into what Im going to eat. Daily cooking can be slow, so, to speed that up I do a lot of prep work a few times a week rather than every day. This also helps me stay on-plan for my meals. Today, I talk about one of my favorite cruciferous vegetable: Kale. I demonstrate how I prep it and I sprinkle in some of the benefits of this delicious leafy greens, featuring some help from Papa and my dog, Sophie.
