New Recipes For Your Favorite Dishes

What’s for lunch? Chicken and broccoli… again.

Have you ever been on a diet for so long that you’ve found yourself eating the same food every single day? It’s like you’re trapped inside a strict health bubble that you can’t bust out of. There’s no variety whatsoever!

Salmon. Chicken. Repeat.

Booooring.

Honestly, it’s time for you to spice things up. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be the most monotone experience of your life. You can change the look, flavor and feel of your meals as much as you want without messing too much with the calories. All you need is a little bit of creativity and a variety of spices.

Let me show you two recipes you can try to switch things up.

Salmon Pasta 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Skinless salmon (wild-caught if you have the money to spare)
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 1/4 Garlic
  • 1/2 Red Bell Peppers
  • 1/2 Avocado

Seasoning:

  • Lemon & Herb
  • Black Pepper
  • Pink Salt
  • Salad Supreme
  • Onion
  • Garlic & Herb

*Please note: The majority of my meals are cooked with McCormick’s Perfect Pinch spices, because they’re the only ones that don’t have MSG. The only spices that I buy that aren’t from that brand are black pepper, onion and garlic because of my budget.

McCormick's Perfect Pinch Spices

How to cook?

For starters, make sure to wash and cut your veggies in small pieces, except for the zucchini. Instead, cut the zucchini in a spiral shape. It should end up looking like a handful of green noodles. After you’re done, spray a little bit of spray-on olive oil inside a large pan and place them there. Put the heat on medium.

While your veggies are cooking, put the salmon on a separate pan with lemon & herb, black pepper and salt seasoning on top. Put the heat on medium and let it cook throughout.

In the meantime, open the avocado in half. You’re only going to eat half of it, so place the remaining half that has the seed inside a zip-lock bag in the fridge.

Now, get back to your veggies. Add all of the seasonings I listed above as you stir the vegetables to make sure that they’re equally flavored. Don’t let your veggies get too soggy. Take them out after a couple of minutes.

Once your salmon is done, place the veggies and the salmon on a large bowl with the avocado. Mix all the ingredients together, and thank me later.

Chicken Sandwich (Manuela Style)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 1 Portabella Mushroom Caps
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 1/4 Red Bell Pepper
  • 5 Arugula Leafs
  • HEB Spicy Brown Mustard

Seasoning:

  • Onion
  • Roasted Garlic & Herb
  • Mexican (that’s what it’s called)
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Black Pepper
  • Pink Salt

How to cook?

The first thing you’re going to do is slice the portabella mushroom cap in half and turn on the oven to 350 degrees. You’re going to put roasted garlic & herb and pink salt seasoning on each half of the mushroom. Also, you’re going to slice the red bell pepper as thin as possible and put it inside the each half of the mushroom by opening a small hole in the bottom. Before putting the caps inside the oven, spray a little bit of spray-on olive oil on top so that they’ll be crunchy, like a hamburger bun.

Start cooking your chicken ten minutes after you’ve put the caps inside the oven so that both ingredients can be done around the same time. You want to add mexican, black pepper, pink salt and onion seasoning on top of your chicken while it cooks.

Once both items are finished, take out the caps and put the chicken on top of one of them. Add some arugula leafs, onion and mustard on top of the chicken before closing the sandwich with the other cap.

Enjoy!

TRY THEM OUT!

I encourage you to try my recipes and see how you like them. I understand that not everyone likes certain vegetables, but give them a try. With the right seasoning and the right cooking formula, they can taste really good!

What are some of your special recipes?

I would love to try yours!

Love always,

Manuela
