Chocolate Gruesli

Made another batch of #gruesli, except this time I added some unsweetened #cocoapowder. Gruesli is less sweet than granola and crunchier than muesli. Because of the nuts, dried fruit, and seeds, it’s a little more caloric than cereal, but packed with #wholefoods and all deliciously good for you. Serving = 2 ounces (or less)= ~165 calories, 3 g of protein, and 3 grams of fiber. Link to recipe in profile.   http://ift.tt/1PQTrN1

Bulk Cooking a la Latina

#Sunday = #BulkCooking = Guaranteed #healthymeals for most of the week. Pictured: “Latin” inspired chicken quinoa. Dice about 1lb of chicken. Cook chicken with a little olive oil and ½ onion until well done. Add 1 cup of veggie broth, ¾ cup of quinoa (I used tricolor), 1 cup drained, rinsed black beans, 1 cup of diced tomato, and 1 cup of corn. Boil for ~30 minues at low-medium heat. For garnish: avocado, lime, and A LOT of cilantro. S&P to taste. You can also add to a bed of greens, make lettuce tacos, or eat with a side of sauteed veggies. I also pureed this for Theo with a little added water.  http://ift.tt/1PrBX7M

#BulkCooking. I usually cook a batch of food on Monday/Tuesday so that I can take advantage of it during the week. I make it vegetarian for food safety reasons. You can always add meats or cheeses after. Five ingredients: #whitekidneybeans, #grapetomatoes, #cilantro, #onion, #lime. Finely cut the onion, add the cilantro and lime, and lastly the tomatoes and beans. TIP: Make sure to drain AND rinse the beans. They will be much easier to digest, trust me. 
Food ideas: 1) add some hard boiled eggs for more protein, 2) mix in some avocado and eat with half a sandwich, 3) dump into a salad, etc

Part B) In the meantime- roast beet. Cut to 1" pieces, coat with a little olive oil and spices. Place in the oven at 425F for about 20-25min. Make sure to mix a few times in between.  
Part C) Mix it all together and voila. Accompaniments: edamame, salad, sautéed spinach, feta, hummus, hard boiled egg, lean meat, and/or #CilantroDressing (recipe to come!)

I hear it all the time… “I don’t have time to cook and/or eat healthy.” BUT, when you cook in bulk, you do! #BulkCooking rocks!!! It allows you to have home-cooked meals, while saving #time and #money!  I used 4 ingredients (#lentils, #celery, #onions, #spicycannedtomato) that made a delish lentil dish. One day I ate it with cheese and crackers, then on tortillas with hummus, then on a salad, and so on. #justdoit #homecookedmeals #cookinginbulk #bushwick #bushwicknutrition #lazynutritionist
