Fresh Tomato and Couscous Salad #SundaySupper

 

April is definitely a great month to start making delicious and fresh recipes, specially when the products are just around the corner. In my case I can find all kinds of fresh and local products in my supermarket.
This is just one of the reason why I love this weeks theme, fresh tomatoes are great on spring, and we can get all kinds, not only are they great for salads, but a good red sauce made with the best quality tomatoes is what everybody needs right how.

But of course this salad is perfect for an afternoon picnic in this amazing weather. Well, you know, I live in California so the weather is always the best, sorry to my friends dealing with snow right know.

But if you feel like channeling some Cali weather you can always make my salad, is fresh made with great ingredients and everybody will love it.

Turkey Picadillo #TryTurkey #ad

I always want to offer and make easy, simple and healthy alternatives to my family, and this recipe is just the perfect example of why I love to cook.
My grandmother use to make this picadillo with lots of red meat, and I love it don’t get me wrong, but one day I decide to make it more simple and healthier for me and my family.

Just changing some ingredients and substituting the red meat with turkey was enough to make the picadillo a great and healthy meal. I do love to cook with turkey and is present even in our hamburgers, yes I made turkey patties from scratch and is one of our favorite every Sunday.

Turkey is really good for you not only is a lean protein, in fact, turkey is a very versatile protein. It absorbs the flavor of spices and sauces providing a lean protein canvas for favorite recipes. In many cases, using turkey can mean a healthier dish with fewer calories.

So I did a turkey recipe remix of my grandmother’s recipe, and let me tell you everybody love it so much that it has become a favorite of us on Tuesday night, I know many of you will say that Tuesdays are for tacos, but in my house Tuesdays are for Turkey not only is super delicious but it is so versatile. I made my picadillo with ground turkey but you can also use turkey sausage, is equally delicious.

Zucchini Stew #HealthyMondays

Zucchini Stew #HealthyMondays

 

There is nothing better than start the week with a good, delicious and healthy recipe, specially when is so good for you and super easy to make. I love to create healthy side dishes for my family and to teach my kids that all foods are good for you and good for your body.

This recipe is inspired by a stew that my mom used to make when we were little and she make it for us specially after a long day of study and doing homework, what a great way to have an excuse to eat a healthy meal.

As a side dish this stew always is a great complement to make for fish, or just prepare white rice and this stew and that is it, you don’t need a piece of meat or poultry.

In my case I make it for my kids once a week, you guess it on Mondays, I think that when you start the week with a healthy stomach it help you with the daily routine of the rest of the week, and let me tell you there is nothing better than a light meal on a Monday night, it helps you to sleep better, keep your kids focus and ready for the next day and you can save the leftovers (if you have some) for lunch and it would taste amazing.

This is one way I eat healthy on Mondays, now, tell me yours. Have a wonderful week!
