Salmon, Omelets, Potatoes and Quinoa Crunch :)

So food for this week has been a bit crazy to say the least. Started out fairly normal, Andy cooked me dinner on Monday. Had grilled salmon with cinnamon rice, carrot fries, and grilled zucchini. It was lovely! He’s a good husband who helps me stay accountable with my healthy eating 🙂
Carrot fries? Chop carrots into fry-size, toss with some fajita seasoning, garlic, and a few sprays of olive oil spray then put on a grill for about 20 minutes.
Cinnamon Rice? Just make rice and add a few tablespoons of cinnamon for added taste and health benefits!

Tuesday we thought we were going to have our god-baby and her dad Ben with us but last minute realized that we had gotten the dates wrong so we had to put off the white fish for a night and made a sweet potato/zucchini omelet. I sautéed the sweet potatoes and then added the zucchini, some onions until it was all softened up a bit. Added 3 eggs, mixed herbs and some milk and then put it under the grill until it was crispy. Added some low sodium/low sugar ketchup to it and it was perfect!

Wednesday we finally had our guests so Andy made a veggie stir fry with some white fish topped with Quark . What is Quark? Basically it is a high protein virtually fat free cheese. Similar to cream cheese it is a great topping to crackers, as a dip for veggies, or a substitute in cooking. My new best friend! I think Ben liked it aswell 🙂20130810-225319.jpg

I usually eat leftovers from dinner for lunch the next day but we ate all the fish and veggies the night before. So what did I eat for lunch? Made a kidney bean, chick pea, corn, mustard salad. Also made some air popped popcorn and chopped raw veggies. Perfect healthy lunch/snacks.

That night we had dinner ready and waiting for us after a long day out showing Ben Oxford so Andy jumped in and made us a wonderful baked potato dinner with grilled zucchini! He had allsorts of toppings. Baked beans, Quark, or Tuna-Quark-yellow pepper. I love baked potatoes because they are so quick and easy, you can put all sorts of toppings on them and as long as you avoid butter, and sour cream then you are likely to be able to keep them so healthy!

Lastly, Saturday night: Made my much loved quinoa crunch ! Healthytippingpoint is one of my go-to blogs for all sorts of recipe ideas. This one in particular is super healthy, uses on-hand ingredients that I usually have in my cupboards (have to plan to buy broccoli and we make our own hummus!). The best part is that you just toss everything into a bowl and bake it for 30 minutes and you’re done! Big hit tonight 🙂
