If you follow my Instagram account you may have seen the yummy recipes I posted this past weekend. This post is recipe round-up.
First we have the mouth-watering tropical kabobs. These are so easy and light.
Just skewer pineapple chunks, mushrooms, purple onion, sweet red peppers, and green peppers. Lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. I roasted in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Grilling the kabobs would work well also.
Friday night I was craving something sweet. We had nothing in the house I could get my hands on so I decided to whip something up with what I had. It was national doughnut day that day. All I saw on social media were yummy doughnuts all day. That got me in the mood for something doughy. This is what happened.
Blueberry Banana Cookies 🙂
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 ripe banana
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp organic honey
1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
A big handful of fresh blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet. Combine flour, protein powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Combine egg, mashed banana, coconut oil, honey, milk, and vanilla extract and whisk together. Add the wet mix to the dry mix and combine together. Fold in the blueberries. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden. These were a hit at my house.
Who doesn’t love chicken salad? I love it, but not with mayo. A good friend shared this with me. It is so easy and delightful.
Avocado Cilantro Chicken Salad 🙂
2 cans of chicken breast or 2 cups of shredded chicken
1 tbsp garlic powder with parsley
1 tsp salt
Juice of 2 fresh limes
1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
2 tbsp finely chopped purple onion (optional)
1 large ripe avocado
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. I served open-faced with an Ezekiel muffin and tomato. It would be great as a sandwich or on a bed of mixed greens. Simple, healthy and easy to prepare. Enjoy.
