Meal prep doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming. I made this delicious salad in no time at all. And I have food for the rest of the week!
Preheat oven to broil. Roast sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower with olive oil and s/p. Roast until crispy edges and tender. Mix ground turkey with your choice of hot sauce and herbs s/p. Form into patties and cook on the stove until each side is browned and cooked through. Sauté some kale with evoo, s/p and any other spices you like. Put everything together and squeeze lemon over the top. A healthy and delicious meal now awaits your taste buds!
Who needs a little food inspiration for lunch!? :) We have changed our Health Tip Tuesday to Health Tip Thursday!:) Every Thursday you can expect a healthy tip, a recipe or superfood spotlight! Today is featuring my (Tiffnee Wertenberger, Health Coach) lunch! 🥗 I like to call it the Ultimate Kale Salad! There is a good amount of prep work that goes into this so I like making 3 servings and portioning them for 3 days worth of ready made lunches!
1. Start by roasting your favorite veggies! (I like yellow onion, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and/ or asparagus. Roast with some olive oil, sea salt pepper and some paprika) 20 min @ 400
2. While the veggies are roasting chop up your favorite greens! Mine are kale and romaine lettuce! For kale you can remove the stems.
3. Mix dressing: 6tbsp apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar or even lemon/grapefruit juice, 3 tbsp olive oil, sea salt and black pepper (makes 3 servings)
4. Divide greens into 3 bowls, add roasted veggies AND you are free to add 4-6oz protein(grilled chicken is my go to), then divide dressing onto salads evenly. Put lid on and shake! 👍 •
The vinegar and/ or citrus juices help to break down the kales fibrous texture and pungent flavor! •
Hope you enjoy! Please comment if you try the Ultimate Kale salad or tell us what your favorite salad combo is! More recipes for summer, the better! ☀️
Celeriac and Raisins Salad
#celeriac (celery root) is an ugly looking root vegetable with its knotty exterior. Celeriac has a celery flavour and can be eaten raw or cooked. It is often used as a flavouring in soups, stews, gratins and baked or mashed dishes. Celeriac is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, phosphorus, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, magnesium and manganese.
I love this kind of #salad , this is a delicious and easy way to use celeriac. Raisins add a nice sweet taste to this lovely salad, but #horseradish more health benefits.
I like to find ways to add beans to my meals. A friend shared this recipe with me. It's sooo delicious! You can have this as a side salad or a snack. You can also add tuna, chicken or even some red potatoes. I hope you like it as much as I did. And please share a picture of your 3 Bean Salad if you decide to make it 😋 Enjoy!

"Como sociedade, fomos programados para pensar nos alimentos como" bons "ou" maus ", o que me deixa completamente fora de mim. Essa mentalidade é totalmente inútil. É por isso que as nossas melhores intenções são muitas vezes descarriladas depois de comer apenas uma batata frita. ... por que tornamos tudo tão complicado, quando não precisa ser? "
O meu tipo de pensamento e sem duvida o meu tipo de Salada!
Ama o que comes!
My kind of thought and without doubt my kind of Salad!
Love you food!

I just came up with this simple salad today using ingredients I picked up yesterday at the store. It is SO delicious! 🙌 It's also now easily one of my favorite dishes. Here's how I made it:
Mixed greens (spinach, kale, chard, mizuna) on the bottom, followed by peeled carrots, diced tomato and green bell pepper, and spiralized cucumber and zucchini. To make the dressing, use a small blender to blend lemon juice, lime juice, spicy garlic chili (same brand as Sriracha), a small amount of coconut (or any alternative) milk, around 3 tablespoons of peanut butter, and pink Himalayan salt. Drizzle on top or underneath. Top with crushed peanuts. 👌
If you're going to be eating raw (either occasionally or more on regular basis), I highly recommend getting a spiralizer. It's a whole lot of fun turning your veggies into noodles! 💚 The beautiful thing is, eating this way is super affordable. It actually costs more to have meat and dairy in your diet. Did you know humans aren't even omnivores? We're frugivores, like orangutans and other monkeys. "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." -Hippocrates ~Ｌ．Ｏ ．Ｖ．Ｅ．
Can't decide which dressing - thinking a vegan ranch again. This is a spring mix salad with 1/2 of a red bell pepper🌶 , avocado 🥑 , baby tomatoes 🍅 , snap peas, hemp hearts and sesame seeds. #todayssalad#salad
Let's talk protein 🍗🍗
Don't worry, I didn't eat the whole thing in one sitting! I had just a palm-sized piece of this hen 🤚🏽with loads of greens🌿 every day for the week and it was 👌🏽👌🏽
I think there's a bit of a mis-conception sometimes with how much protein we need.
We definitely need a protein source with every single meal, but I often find that people are split half way on this topic: either they're consuming way too little protein and not even thinking about how much they need and why, or they're majorly over-thinking it and consuming way more protein than their body can handle at one time.
The key is moderation. We definitely want to consume a protein source with each meal to maintain muscle function, mood balance, and so much more, but what about the greens? We often forget that this should be the part that takes up the most room on our plates! 🥗 Actually, about 1/2-3/4 of our plate should be green veggies. Why? Because we need that fibre to help with digestion and elimination and to maintain blood sugar balance. And why else? Because animal proteins are acidic in nature, and consuming it with tons of greens helps to alkalize the overall meal.🍗🌿🌿
So no need to eat this whole hen at once to get your protein needs. Split it up, load up on the green stuff, drizzle a healthy oil over top, and you have a complete meal.🍗🥗🥑 #acidalkalinebalance#bloodsugarbalance#proteins#organic
Raw vegan guac tacos. Fresh guacamole spread on romaine lettuce and topped with tomatoes, onions, cilantro and corn. This is how simple it can be to eat healthy and still make delicious meals! #rawfooducation
So...I've been slacking the past week on food and exercise- just out of my normal routine-but back to it this week! Best salads are fresh and local- and what's more local than greens and berries from the backyard ❤. Thanks friend for the idea!!
What is it about craving salads on hot days like this, eh? I was sweating more than I was starving! 😅
So I made this lovely salad to go with my dinner tonight. Simple ingredients of carrot, celery, green peppers and cucumber, with a lime and apple cider vinegar dressing. YUM.😍
And the kale obsession continues.... I could eat kale at every meal lol I know... some people may find that weird but I just love the crunchiness of it. Today's lunch, kale salad with dried cranberries, and lemon pepper scallops. 🙌🏽 I went to Aldi this weekend to see if they had organic eggs at a good price, and I found a huge bag of scallops for $10!!!! This probably would have been at least $20 at Kroger or publix! So it looks like scallops will be part of my meal prep life going forward 😬PS. Aldi did indeed have organic eggs at a good price 🙌🏽😌🙏🏼🍳

Happy Fathers Day, everyone! First up on our menu this evening - homegrown organic spinach, avocado, red onion, goat cheese, walnuts, olive oil and balsamic. It's the perfect evening to eat outside too 🌞 Enjoy!
I love a good salad for dinner on a hot day and I honestly think mine rival anything you could get in a restaurant. This one has romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, Quorn (meat substitute- use chicken, it's better), a quarter of an avocado, and a tablespoon of goat cheese. And here's a tip - love croutons but hate the grease and fat? I just toast a slice of light bread, chop it up, and throw it in the salad before adding some homemade dressing. And another tip - to make your own single serving of dressing just use the orange container. I add a little Dijon mustard, some seasoning, 1/2 TBS extra virgin olive oil and 1 TBS red wine vinegar to the container, put the lid on, and shake it up. Counts for whole salad - 2 green, 1.5 blue, 1 red, .5 yellow, 1 orange. Fresh, filling, and delicious.
Second summer salad of the season- this time in response to a mini-glut of radishes! Fennel, radish, apple, walnuts and mint. Had mine with fishcakes, but could work on it's own with crusty bread and a glass of something nice. Also, to sate my home economic tendencies, you can make a really nice soup out of the radish tops (onion, potato, radish tops, stock, add cream or yogurt)
