Broccoli, Potato, Chicken Quinoa Bowl

The lunch bowl today is similar to this healthy and delicious Broccoli, Cauliflower, Chicken Quinoa Bowl. Routine might not be be a bad thing after all.

Batch-cooking quinoa and chicken breast leftovers are all part of meal preparation and that really got me into the groove of such a meal combination (or shall I say, post-workout worthy meals).

Come meal time, all we need is re-heat the leftovers, roast some sweet potatoes or potatoes and steam fresh vegetables (Note: Steaming vegetables is a gentle quick-cooking method that maintains vegetables' nutritional value and beautiful color).



Broccoli, Kale, Winter Squash & Egg Breakfast Brunch

Good morning to a healthy 2019!

Hearty breakfasts like this Broccoli, Kale, Winter Squash with Egg should be done more often. Truth is, there is hardly any time to prepare so many ingredients (kitchen war zone evidenced below) before 7am.

But the breakfast spirit should live on, regardless of time. So I prepared THAT many ingredients and made breakfast-style lunch!


The trick to this dish is not to over-do the greens, yet give a little more to the potatoes and hard winter squash.

For those who prefer grains in place or potatoes/squashes, try Broccoli, Kale, Quinoa with Egg.


Golden Milk

As the name implies, this milk has turned golden with the use of turmeric. It has also turned "golden" because milk is now more precious, worth many anti-inflammatory benefits.

An Ayurvedic tradition - Golden Milk is a tonic that is meant to be nourishing, and good-tasting at the same time. Do you know that the compound - piperine found in black pepper enhances the absorption of turmeric? Don't forget its black pepper partner in harmony the next time you use turmeric in curries, pilafs, or even a salad dressing.
