I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas, enjoying some quality family time. I for one would like to take this opportunity and apologize for not posting much lately. There are times in everyone’s life where the deck is stacked against you – you know what I mean, right?! Sometimes, it just seems like every single thing that can go wrong in your life does. So then all you want is a break. From everything! But now that I am slowly and surely back into business, I have a bunch of special and exciting things for you in 2016, so stay with me….
Buttery Lentils, crunchy chickpeas, avocado and … almond flakes – such a bold vegan meal that requires maximum 5 minutes to get it ready.
I know I always say this, but this salad is definitely my NEW favorite. It tastes absolutely divine, similar to my Brussels Sprouts, White Beans and Almond Flakes.The avocado lends a lovely, buttery favor and the parsley makes the salad taste alive.
I am not kidding, I’ve made this salad a few times now, with both freshly cooked chickpeas and the canned ones. It’s great both ways, but I prefer using the fresh ones. Now what I like to do, in order to significantly reduce my time in the kitchen, is every week I cook lentils, chickpeas, beans and quinoa in bulk and keep them for a few days in the refrigerator. That way, I make sure we eat healthy all week….
These 5 Quick Light Meals have saved my life for the past two weeks. All of them are nutritious, light – you can have them at any time of your day and they are quick to make. It takes exactly 5 minutes to get them ready.
I, for one, am working hard on moving over to a self-hosted wordpress blog that will be all mine. I felt like I had to share my new project with you all as I am so excited about it – the big friendly family of bloggers. THANK YOU guys for all your support and beautiful words. It meant so much that it has convinced me to take it to the next level! :) …
The weather has been gorgeous in the last couple of days in this part of the world, too. And I am sooooo grateful for that!!! Therefore, I spent some time outdoors to recharge my batteries with solar energy and good spirit.
