Tips from RockIt Mom:

Where have all the tips been this summer? Where are the fun easy healthy recipes? I know, I have taken full advantage of summer and the sun (finally) and enjoying my family and the site has been low on the totem pole of life.  Which is my point, do things for yourself and don’t feel “obligated” or “must-do”. Remember to enjoy your family and yourself.   Just got back from a fabulous beach vacation – consisting of surfing, boogieboarding and eating like crazy EVERY DAY! Time to get back on the health train.  (more…)

Rainbow Quinoa Salad*

Posted on 11. Jul, 2010 in Food, Uncategorized

Ingredients:

• 1 cup Quinoa, uncooked. The red and black quinoa is good for a change.

• 2 cups water for Quinoa

• 1 organic carrot, chopped small

• 1 small red onion, chopped small

• 1 stalk of organic celery, chopped small

• 2 scallions, white and green parts, chopped small

(save 1/4 cup of scallion for garnish)

• 2 corn on the cob, decobbed or organic frozen corn

• 1 tsp. Sea salt, pinch of pepper

• 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil

• 1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh

• Optional: fresh organic parsley, about 1/4 cup chopped

Directions:

Soak Quinoa for 2 mins, rinse well and cook 2 parts liquid to 1 part water. Bring water to a boil, add grain and then simmer for 20-25 mins, until grain looks fluffy. Set aside to cool at least 10 mins.

Prep all the vegetables, juice lemon. Blend olive oil with lemon. Mix veggies with cooled grain and dress, adjust lemon and salt to taste. Garnish with parsley or scallion. Then, ENJOY!!

*Another option: Just cook the quinoa in chicken broth and in the last five minutes, add chopped peppers, broccoli, cranberries (and whatever else you like). Much simpler/faster and still good!

Weekly Tips from RockIt Mom:

1. GREEN - Get organic fresh fruit and veggies from a CSA farm or farm produce program.  If you figure out how much you spend weekly going to the store, your time and gas, these delivery services make much more sense.  A few friends have started this for 2010 and love it.  Plus you are given recipes for the items in your box.   In So.
