Healthy Meals- Tripple Greens, Salmon & Quinoa
3 Greens Chopped salad, warm quinoa salad and seared salmon!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Dried cranberries or golden raisins
2tbs dressing (I whisked 1tsp of raw honey, 1tbs Dijon mustard, juice of 1/2 lemon and 2tbs of olive oil)
Warm Quinoa Salad:
1/2 chopped onion
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 tbs of (coconut) oil
1 cup Organic quinoa
1 cup fresh or frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
Pinch of Sea Salt and pepper
4-6 oz (Wild caught Alaskan) Salmon fillet
Here’s how you do it:
Roughly chop all the greens and toss in a large bowl with shredded carrots (or any other veggies of your choice)
Sprinkle with 1tbs sunflower seeds, 1tbs chopped hazelnuts (you can also use walnuts, chopped pistachios or almond slivers), 2tbs dried cranberries or golden raisins
Drizzle with dressing (don’t drown your crispy greens)
Sautee chopped onion and garlic on medium heat until the onion is almost clear, season with sea salt and pepper to taste
Add 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water
Cover and cook until most of the water has evaporated (or follow instructions on package)
Add spinach and mix it all together.
(add flax seeds or chia seeds for an omega and fiber boost)
Sear the salmon fillet 3-4 minutes each side (or until brown-ish), then cover and lower the heat to complete cooking (+5min)
Serve a heaping portion of salad, 1/2 cup warm quinoa salad, a fillet of salmon and enjoy!
