10-minute #snack meal: cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado & bell pepper salad wraps. Ridiculously easy meal to prep and for a quick energy pick-up! Boom.
This is one of my favorite treat meals. It is easy to make, and you can customize the recipe by adding other raw vegetables to your liking or in season. You can even replace salmon with turkey in case you are not a big fan of seafood.
All you need for this really simple recipe is 4 ingredients. Smoked salmon, cucumber, bell pepper and avocado. Remember, salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, the “good” fat that your body needs to function and exercise.
Start by cutting half of the cucumber into thin slices with a mandolin. Then slice veggies into thin strips and build bite-sized wraps. Use cucumber as a base, add smoked salmon and veggies, and roll it up.
Fresh and crunchy salmon salad is perfect for a spring lunch or quick low carb dinner.
I’m thrilled at how good this smoked salmon salad recipe is! It’s simple, healthy and done in less than 10 minutes. Besides, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential, so you must get them from your diet because your body cannot create them. Salmon is also full of high-quality protein, another essential nutrient.

This easy lamb chops recipe is sweet, with just the right kick of heat. Seasoned generously with herbs and spices, it sits on top of a delicious sweet potato and cranberry waffle. If you were wondering what else you could make with that waffle iron sitting in your cabinet, give this a try. Whether it’s for Easter brunch or a fancy Mother’s Day feast, the juicy and tender lamb chops look gorgeous on top of crispy waffles that are not only paleo friendly, but protein packed to keep you on track for your health and fitness goals.
Try to get grass fed and organic lamb since they have a more robust flavor and are better for your body too. While the spice mix I use here is more middle eastern, containing turmeric, cumin, garlic, red pepper, and onion powder, feel free to switch it up with whatever you have in your pantry. Lamb traditionally pairs well with dill, garlic, rosemary, and mint so if you have those on hand, a dash here and there will be very welcome. If you have a cast iron skillet, all the better to get a nice crust that seals in the moisture, or you can chuck them over some charcoal for grilled lamb chops or chops with garlic instead. If you have a rack of lamb, seasoning it and then roasting it in the oven is also a possibility, especially if you’re preparing multiple portions for lunch or dinner guests. I personally love lamb chops medium rare, but you might like them a little more or less cooked and that’s completely fine. Make sure you practice food safety when handling raw meat.
The secret to keeping the waffles together are the egg whites, which will bind the grated sweet potatoes and prevent them from falling apart. To keep the waffles from getting soggy, only place the lamb chops on top of them in the last few minutes before serving. The waffles are a great way to use up the sweet potatoes if you find yourself with too many. They also freeze and reheat well, so you can make a whole stack of them, stick them in the freezer, and pop a few into the oven for a quick and easy breakfast.
Just thinking about this sweet, savory, and spicy treat that gets my appetite going. If you enjoyed this herbed lamb chops and waffles recipe, shoot me a message or leave a comment below. I would love to hear all about it!
High protein parfait for breakfast? It’s a great combination of fresh fruits, nonfat Greek yogurt and crunchy granola. Perfect healthy breakfast on the go.
This blackberry and strawberry parfait recipe has 3 layers, which you can assemble the way I am, or as you wish. Also, it can be assembled in any container you want. I use these glass jars because they are very practical.
Berries play a major role in this recipe, so make sure the ones you get are ripe enough, juicy and sweet.
Wash and drain the berries well. Remove the stems from strawberries, then chop them into slices or small chunks. To assemble the parfaits, layer the three components starting with adding fresh strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of parfait glasses. Then add greek yogurt and finally granola. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you like.
If you want to boost a level of protein, you can add a little bit of collagen or flavored protein powder of your choice to the greek yogurt.
Chill parfaits for 2 hours in the fridge before serving, and they are ready for sweet enjoyment. It tastes as good as they look, trust me!
This parfaits recipe is very customizable, so you can add fruits or other ingredients of your choice. You can add fresh raspberries, peaches, blueberries, or bananas. As long as the fruit is fresh, the dessert will be great. Also, try to make your own homemade granola and use it in this combination for breakfast.
Parfait doesn’t have to be just breakfast, you can also use this recipe for a healthy dessert. Many desserts require baking in the oven, but this is a great, very easy recipe that does not require much time to make.
It is also a great dessert that you can make for someone, if you do not have a lot of skills for making desserts that are complicated.
