Here is my entry for this healthy food contest:-
https://steemit.com/food/@varna/3-healthy-meals-from-kerala

I am introducing two recipes of my own and a veggie salad:-
  • Organic puttu using spinach, powdered rice and wheat and carrots
  • Organic upma using broken wheat, carrots and broccoli
  • The side dishes for these are also prepared using natural and healthy ingredients.
  • A veggie salad

HEALTH IS WEALTH

TRIED THEM MYSELF, SO TASTE AND "YUMMY-NESS" IS 101%. :)
And I also used breakfast, lunch and dinner as my sub categories for better and healthier intake of food. Since we are already talking about being healthy, why not take it to another level. Nothing to lose right? Anyways, here are my entries:

FIRST, breakfast: (servers 2)

Poached Egg & Avocado Breakfast Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • 7 grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp pistachios
  • salt/pepper

Instructions

  • Poach the eggs.
  • Create the salads by layering the lettuce, tomatoes, cooked quinoa, avocado, and pistachios.
  • Add the poached eggs and top with salt/pepper to taste.

Shopping

  • Just grab all of these in the nearest market, supermarket, grocery, food stall, its also my best breakfast because you can just make this in under 10 minutes, perfect before going to work, no hassle, so its no worries.

Benefits:

  • This meal gives us the energy we need until we get to lunch.
  • Perfect combination of reds, greens, fruits and proteins to bring out the energy you need for work.
  • This is also a "heavy breakfast salad" so im sure you wont get hungry until lunch.
    Poached-Egg-Avocado-Breakfast-Salad-4.jpg

SECOND, lunch (serves 1)

Tuna Wrap

Ingredients

  • 1 large whole wheat tortilla
  • 1 batch Avocado Tahini Dip (You can but this in your nearest vegan shop)
  • 100 g cooked tuna (or 1 small can)
  • 3 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 small cucumber
  • 1/2 bell pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare Avocado Tahini Dip.
  • Wash and thinly slice cucumber and bell pepper.
  • Wash and dry lettuce.
  • Lay out a large piece of wax paper.
  • Place whole wheat tortilla on top.
  • Spread Avocado Tahini Dip on half of the tortilla.
  • Place lettuce, tuna, cucumber and bell pepper on dip.
  • Roll everything into a wrap, then roll around wax paper forming pockets at top and bottom and secure with either adhesive tape or a string.
  • Cut in the middle and enjoy!

Shopping

  • The only hard item to find here is the avocado tahini dip which could be found usually in vegan stores and health marts, all the other ingredients are found in your nearest market, supermarket, grocery, food stall.

Benefits

  • This is a wrap, basically making use of a wheat wrap, so its really a heavy meal, thinking that you have tuna and avocado with you.
  • Expect that you wont be getting hungry until dinner time.
  • This is the heaviest meal among the three because the time from lunch to dinner has the longest wait time, so you need all the energy, nutrients and "tummy filling" you need until dinner arrives.
  • Plus, the tahini dip is perfect for concentration in work, in school, or in whatever it is you are doing.

LAST (but definitely not the least), dinner (serves 2)

Spicy Asian Chicken Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 bags shredded carrots
  • 2 bags of "Cruciferous Crunch" shredded salad from Trader Joe's (alternately you could use slaw mix + shredded kale)
  • 2 Tbs black sesame seeds
  • 1 jalapeno sliced very fine into halves (more or less according to taste, I like it SPICY!)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, torn into shreds
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 4 Tbs Tamari (tamari is a gluten free soy sauce) or regular soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs Sriracha
  • 5-6 drops liquid stevia (alternately you could use a drizzle of honey or maple syrup but I like to keep it sugar free)

Instructions

  • Simply put all ingredients into a large plastic bag and shake vigorously until well incorporated. Adjust flavors as needed .
  • Pour into bowls or onto plates and enjoy!!

Shopping

  • Again, this is an easy mix because you can buy all of this in your nearest market, supermarket, grocery, food stall.

Benefits

  • This is a light salad meal, perfect for dinner since you wont be using too much energy since you are asleep.
  • Its a healthy meal due to the jalapenos, sriracha and sesame seeds which help our body store energy until we use it for the next day.
  • Also, this meal is great if you have trouble sleeping because of the stevia or honey which helps us relax thus, making helping us sleep better
  • The sriracha helps our body by making our blood flow better through our veins because of its anti-coagulant properties.

3 - Chocolate peanut butter banana bites - Source of protein and potassium!
Semi sweet chocolate chips, smooth peanut butter, 2 bananas, coconut oil.

These are my entries =D

·

That avocado toast sounds great. Its hard to find the seeds so I'll just get the bread with the chia seeds in it and spread the avocado on the bread. It sounds so good though. How do you glaze the salmon?

·
·

yea the seeds are quite hard to find, i really just buy the Hoisin sauce already made and normally i would marinade the salmon fillets overnight or for at least 6 hours and shallow fry like that and maybe add a little more sauce after cooking. (I love Hoisin sauce lol)

I got really sick from EBV and went to see an endocrinologist. He suggested I go very low carb (no sugars for months) to stimulate my immune system.

I've lost about 5-6 kilos and I've started eating really healthily (again) no rubbish ingredients at all and no stodge. so here's my top 3 meals to make you well.

Meal 1) Baked Aubergine rolls

(recipe for 2 people) .. fantastic taste, very nutritious, low in fat and carbs.. easy to prepare and guaranteed to impress your dinner guests.

Salt & slice lengthways 1cm thick and blanche for 3 minutes - 1 aubergine per 2 people. meanwhile get a pan and gently fry a couple of chopped spring onions in olive oil, then wilt 500 grms of baby spinach. add a good pinch of cayenne pepper, 2-3 cloves of crushed garlic, 3-4 tbs of creme fraiche, add a handful of dried fruit; raisins, chopped dates.

salt and pepper cook down for 3-4 minutes over a medium heat. take the mixture off the heat and spoon a dollop on to the end of a slice and roll up placing open ends down in a baking tray. line up next to each other. then grate some of your favourite cheese over the top and bake for 25 minutes in a hot oven; 190c.

Serve immediately with a tomato and onion salad. spectacularly creamy and simple with that lovely warmth from the cayenne pepper.

Meal 2) Warm Goats Cheese & Seed Salad.

Low carb summer dish bursting with bags of flavour and very satisfying. This is a recreation of a meal from a wonderful meal in a beach side cafe in La Palma

Assemble baby chard, baby spinach, lambs lettuce in a bowl. Chop up pomodorino tomatoes and red pepper add. dry roast in a hot pan, no oil a good handful of toasted seeds (sunflower, pumpkin and pine nuts and toast some sliced almonds) warm a whole goats cheese 150 grm until it starts to melt. add on top. chop up a handful of stoned green olives in the meantime. make a dressing with balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper. take some chopped strawberries from the fridge. add the lovely sweet juice to your dressing and add the strawberries to the salad and / or you can chop up a sweet juicy fig.

DELICIOUS summer food. serve up with a pumpkin cracker and you could in theory have a cold beer or a glass of dry white wine with this low carb meal. although I'm off alcohol completely with EBV infection so had a blue Budweiser (0.05%) we had this last night and on Friday ! & here's a bonus photo of that actual salad, the one we ate on Friday :)
 
20170704_224642.jpg

Meal 3) Lentil Soup with Croutons

In a large pan boil up 50grm of red lentil per person for 20 minutes until they start to mush. season well with salt and pepper (Himalayan Pink salt is amazing with 84 minerals and no harsh chemical processing). Add low salt vegetable stock / bouillon and a good squeeze of concentrated tomato paste. add 200grms chopped tomatoes and fresh or dried basil, thyme oregano. meanwhile gently fry up a finely chopped large onion. Add 3-4 garlic cloves and continue to fry for a minute more or until the smell of garlic makes you drool.

If you really like a bit of special in your lentil soup, feel free to add a bit of chorizo, salami, pancetta or chopped bacon to the onions and garlic and let it all gently swizzle together. Add to the soup. Dry off your pan. toast some seeds (pumpkin, sunflower and pine nuts) and keep tossing until toasty brown. put to one side. add olive oil or a ground nut oil to your pan and shallow fry 2cm squares of flat bread until crisp but not too brown. drain off with some kitchen paper into a bowl and set aside. your soup should simmer for at least 10-15 minutes after the 20 minute boil.

It should be ready about now. Add a dash of semi-skimmed milk to soften up and creamify the soup. you just have time to grate some hard cheese for a delightful top. serve up into a shallow soup bowl (so it cools nicely) add a handful of the croutons to each bowl, sprinkle with seeds and then add a dash of the cheese and serve immediately. We eat this at least once a week.

There you go.

My top 3 healthy dishes. all very nutritious, low carb, low fat, high protein dishes to keep you in tip top shape. you can eat all three of these meals regularly and never get bored of them.. I always make a couple of spare portions of the soup for the freezer ;)

Ingredients

I try and get all of my ingredients locally. We live very near to London's biggest vegetable market (New Spitalfields) so we can get most of the ingredients all year round from local shops and stalls at very good prices and very good value.

Grow your own

Tomatoes and peppers and (small) aubergines we grow on our roof terrace along with chillies, sweet potatoes, courgettes and peppers. The dried ingredients come from our local organic shop and the salad is bought in as fresh as possible from the farmers market and kept very coo at around 2 degrees.

    • Shiitake and other mushrooms are rich in antioxidants and help reduce cholesterol.

  3. Grapefruit and Avocado Salad With Seared Salmon
    • Fatty acids from the walnuts and salmon, as well as monounsaturated fats from the avocado keep this dish heart-healthy.

    • This salad nets you a good amount of the B vitamin niacin, which helps keep your skin, hair, and eyes healthy.

I found these receipts on Internet several weeks ago, in order to improve my diet and diversify my nutrition plan.
The Burger with Mushrooms is amazing :)

Just playing my part in food sector.

A wonderful publication Greetings to wish you a beautiful day

That is a great challenge. Here a mix from my posts and some addons

My Meal # 1 - A huge muesli with fruits

I add the following things

  • Muesli with some nuts and raisons
  • Yourgurt
  • Milk
  • Banana
  • Apple
  • Lemon
  • Nuts
  • Nectarine
  • Strawberry
  • Kiwi
    and give all of this a big mix. Add more milk and yourgurt if it is to dry at the end.

Here is a link to how it might look like
https://steemit.com/food/@detlev/breakfast-on-weekends-is-something-to-celebrate-original-picture-from-detlev

My Meal # 2 - Banana Milk Shake
The kids love it and it is so simple. Take some milk and some nice and even brown bananas.

  • Use a mixer
  • Milk
  • Banana
  • (Honey) if you like
  • Ice from water if it is hot
  • very little lemon for a fresh taste

In the summer time, I add as well some ice and a bit lemon to make it a real fresh taste

My Meal # 3 - The Ultimate Burger
I love the Burgers and we made all by our own, even the bread.
Here is one of my special ones and my secret is the banana inbetween the meat.

How to make it:

  • get good meat from the butcher
  • add banana (one per 500g)
  • peper
  • salt
  • garlic

mix all this carefully and put it into the right form and sice. I do 150-200g per burger but sometimes we just do only 80g and small breads

  • put the burger in the freezer for 2-3 hours, because than the soft burger stays in from on the BBQ.

Put it on the grill with high temp and than after turning lower the temp. Eat it whenever it is still a bit soft but cooked from the inside.

Enjoy!!

Here are some more picture from a huge one I did the other day.

Hi everyone here is my "Entry for healthy food contest. :)". I'm not just posting this for the sake of doing so. This has been my routine for some years and does fit so well in my plate and very much affordable and easily available.

0931975425b17e2bb710e1f7ee1b25fb.jpg

In this article, I want to give you the distilled information from 8 years worth of highs and lows that I went through. Hopefully, it will shave off some research time off your plate.

Simply put, my current most-up-to-date diet plan is something that can fit on a Stick it note.

Here it is:

Breakfast:
6 Egg whites Omelette with one Yolk.
Oats (I take them with any fruit or dry fruits, just to make them taste better).

480319_10151110941412964_35517043_n.jpg

Lunch:
Brown rice (Again with any thing that would make it taste better).

Evening Snack :
Banana/Apple/Orange/any fruit. (just as to keep you full).

Dinner:
5 Egg White Omelette with 1 yolk.

Don’t let the simplicity of this diet fool you. I have been following this for past many years and very happy for not having to stress out about what to eat and watching out too much.

Also, always have a cheat day. Let me repeat, Have a cheat day. Otherwise, you will not stick to any diet plan for long.

@cryptokraze: thank you for letting me share this. Cheers and keep steeming and stay healthy.
