Grilled Mango and Peach Skewers

Grilled fruit is one of my favorite summer desserts. It’s extremely easy to prepare, refreshing to eat, and is an excellent conclusion to a fun family barbeque. You can grill the mangoes and peaches on an outdoor grill or even a grill pan. The two main points to remember is that you must grease the grill (or grill pan) very well, and grilled fruit works best with ripe fruit.

Warm Brown Rice Salad with Peas, Sundried Tomatoes, and Mint

Posted by on Jun 2, 2015 in Free Healthy Recipes | 0 comments

Warm Brown Rice Salad with Peas, Sundried Tomatoes, and Mint

Pairing peas with brown rice is a great way to create a complete protein. This is because brown rice is high in the amino acids cysteine and methionine but low in lysine. Peas, on the other hand, contain a high lysine content but are low in cysteine and methionine. This makes peas and rice complementary proteins and when paired together they offer an excellent amino acid profile that is equivalent to eggs or dairy. Mint is often added to dishes containing peas because it boosts the natural sweet flavors that the peas offer to the dish. The sundried tomatoes add a satisfying tartness to balance the salad. Enjoy!

Omelet with Sautéed Beet Greens and Shallots

Often the beets that we purchase come with beautiful green stalks attached to them which we promptly throw out when using the actual beet root. However, the beet greens are nutrient-rich with very high levels of vitamins A, K, and C. Similar in taste and appearance to Swiss chard, beet greens can be prepared in a similar manner. They can be eaten as a side dish sauteed with garlic and lemon or added to various recipes such as eggs and pastas. I decided to add them to my morning breakfast omelet and I found it to be delicious and satisfying
